“One Night in Miami Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

On our way back from Key West, my wife and I decided to stay a night in Miami Beach. We decided on the Angler's Hotel from reviews here and booked a Manor Villa. Here are the details of our stay / opinions:

Location:
I have mixed emotions on the location.. My first reaction to the location was disappointment that it is a few blocks from the beach and towards the far West end of "the strip" - so a walk to and from a dinner on Ocean Blvd turned out to be a hike. However, it was a nice evening and since realizing how crazy South Beach can be in that area, we appreciated the seclusion later.

Accommodations:
The Manor Villa is VERY NICE inside. Downstairs is a living area with a full bathroom, bar, sitting area (with pull-out), flat screen tv and high-top dining table. Upstairs is a full size King bed, desk area and full bath. We also had a great porch area with patio table and chairs and a jacuzzi. The only disappointment for us was a seeming lack of privacy for our room. We were the first villa facing Washington Blvd, and if you sit in the jacuzzi, you can see people walk and cars wizzing by. Not sure what I expected here, but it definitely doesn't feel like you are at the beach. The restaurant backed up to our villa room as well, which was loud for brunch until about 4:00 or 5:00, but quieted down at night.

Property:
You have to remember that this is a boutique hotel, so there are sometimes odd quirks to the hotel experience. For example.. The Angler's does not have a drive-in area to unload bags, so it is a little awkward pulling off to the side on Washington to valet the car and unload bags directly onto the sidewalk with pedestrians walking by. When walking into the hotel, you walk your bags through the restaurant (full of people no less) in the front to a front desk situated in a hallway. That experience is a little awkward. However, it is made-up for by immaculate conditions, great decorating, an accommodating staff and a boutique hotel feel - which is what I like better than a stodgy tower of 100+ hotel rooms.

Service:
One major hiccup we received happened not 20 minutes after we checked in. We received a heavy knock on our front door. Before I could get to the door, I could hear the staff try and pull out their key card to enter our room! After answering, two staff (that could not speak english) were trying to speak with us and pointing inside our room. Finally, one of them walked over to my wife's purse and pointed to it and asked if she could look through it. After objecting, they decided to just look through the couch and pull-out bed, only to not find what they came to look for. Bewildered, we called the front desk to tell them we had maids enter - to the response of "and what is your question?" Apparently someone left their iphone in the room previously and they wanted to see if it was left in the room. Advice to the hotel - send someone to the room that can speak english and we would be happy to help you look for the lost phone. After possibly seeing that it was not appropriate, and to their credit, they did send champagne to our room after dinner - at no cost.

In all, it was a very nice hotel with a wonderfully accommodating staff, for a price that is difficult to beat (for what you get) in Miami Beach. I am being picky with the review, but we did find it to be a different experience than what we were expecting. We would come back again, but may try a hotel on the beach next time.

We stayed here twice - before and after our Caribbean cruise. It's a lovely, small hotel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Just a couple of blocks from Ocean Drive, so very convenient for all that South Beach has to offer.
Our first room was a duplex suite in an annexe, but we preferred our single floor suite in the main building overlooking the pool. All rooms are clean and modern.
We enjoyed breakfast on the terrace, though there are lots of other possibilities nearby.
Would definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Choose main building if possible

My husband and I stayed here this week and just loved it.. Rooms were clean, big and the service was great.. The front desk and everyone who works there are more than gracious and helpful as this was our first trip to south beach. The decor is charming, unique and modern at the same time.. We would def. return to this hotel again.. Loved it!
Thanks for making our stay so nice!!!

Great hotel - great location - very cozy

Just walk two blocks to the beach and boardwalk - the hotel even lends you a beach bag, beach towels and provides water for your day at the beach

Marc at the front desk was a great help planning our activites

The absolute best thing about this hotel is the staff members. They are friendly, helpful and accomodating. It is because of them that the hotel has a pleasant atmosphere. My room and the bathroom were both large, bright and clean. The location was nice, away from the rush of Ocean Boulevard, yet within easy walking distance of dining and entertainment. My complaints are the room's location and the a/c. It was ground floor with an unappealing view to the rooms in the building across from it. Because it was more or less in a tunnel or valley between two tall structures, sound carried. I don't like noise at night. I could also hear my (noisy) upstairs neighbors at 3am. The a/c wouldn't cool the room to my satisfaction and the maintenance guy couldn't do anything about it. I would certainly stay again, but would resist a ground floor room.

Room Tip: Do not accept the ground floor room with the veranda facing the opposite building.

Staff and service went far beyond requirements. A bottle of champaign was delivered to begin our weekend -great touch! Then invited to manager's reception for cocktails and delicious appetizers. The staff gave great recommendations on the area and location was perfect to get the feel of SoBe. Far enough away that not noisy, but a close walk to all the fun. We had one of the 2-floor villas. Had sufficient room for four people sharing two baths...you could do a fifth, but would be tight. Rollaway bed would have to be on lower half due to stairs and lower-level not as roomy with pull-out. Thanks to Angler's for making our weekend away so enjoyable.

I had the best experience ever! My husband and I live in Miami and were looking for a weekend getaway for my 30th birthday... We already had dinner and party plans on the beach and this was a fabulous pick and idea.

We stayed in a Tower Duplex Suite and it was spacious and breath taking. One first floor was our living room and guest bath, the second was our master with a bath and the last one had a terrace and spa!!!
It was sooooo clean and housekeeping came everyday at a decent time to leave the place impeccable. They don't bother you at 8am like at other hotels.

The staff was so welcoming and accommodating. They even brought us a champagne bottle for my birthday! =)

On Sunday, we tried their brunch and it was the best I've ever had. I've been to a few here in Miami and it did not compare. The pandebons was amazing with guava butter! We ordered a Pollo con Arepa and a Yuca con Lechon and they did not disappoint! Delicious!!!

I'm so glad we went here. I had an unforgettable 30th birthday! We will visit again =)
