“Simply Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Wow! Our entire experience from beginning to end was just wonderful! From the Valet parking to Ellen's friendly and cheerful welcome at the front desk! We were made to feel very special! The room was beautifully appointed and large! Our personal hot tub on our large balconey was great! Just steps away from the beach and the cool vibe of South Beach is right outside the doors! Highly recommend this gem!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Stayed here using my wife's IHG loyalty points, and it was a good choice. Location was on Collins Avenue, and very near to the beach and Ocean Drive, so right in the heart of the action. We were upgraded to a pool suite, where our room opened straight onto the pool area, which was great, and the suite itself was very well appointed and luxurious. I felt the room layout could have been improved upon, but other than that, no complaints. The bed was huge and comfortable, and the pool area, whilst small, never felt overcrowded. Good lobby area, and excellent service from all the staff and especially the concierge, but helped us out a number of times. Would recommend the hotel to anyone

Room Tip: Use the concierge service

We stayed in the rooftop terrace with ocean view. I highly recommend it, my husband and I had an amazing time. The views from the terrace was partial ocean view but was okay. We had our own 4 person hot tub on the terrace which was great! Location is great too, although beach isnt on hotel property it is easily accessible and they have service at the beach with towels, chairs and light food and drinks. Lots of dinner choices due to location. Even hotel restaurant wasnt bad and the restaurant manager is great! Rooms were clean and staff was very attentive!!! Louis was great with helping me make our reservation and Fiorella at the front desk was extremely helpful and kind. We are already planning to go back!!

The staff and management of this hotel made me and my better two-thirds feel like royalty. Without exception, they ALL were terrific, from the valet parking attendant to the concierge to the cleaning personnel, everyone was cheerful and attentive. Our room did not have the ocean view that we had hoped for, but otherwise it was more than satisfactory in every way, posh really. Breakfast at the Front Porch restaurant downstairs couldn't have been better, either. We would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat. Thanks, Ramon, for running a top-notch operation. (The spa offerings looked great on paper, btw, but neither of us took advantage of any of them.)

Room Tip: We had a cheerful corner room. I was reticent at first, because it was adjacent to the pool, and was...

My husband and I recently spent 3 glorious nights at the Z Ocean, fairly pricey but worth every cent! Everyone should do this at least once in your lifetime! The place is spectacular, sitting in the private hot tub on the rooftop balcony under the stars will make you feel like a celebrity! They have thought of everything and forgotten nothing in this beautiful hotel. I hope we can return again, it made our vacation one of the most memorable to date! Love it!!!

The staff is fantastic, Jose at the front desk was incredibly helpful. The room was amazing, wet bar, nice balcony, the best shower of any hotel I've been. I would suggest asking for a room away from the housekeeping closet, we heard the door slam shut like 30 times. The location cannot be beat!
