We have visited the Shelborne three times now over New Year's Eve.

If you're not lucky enough to get a reservation at the Shelborne, they offer chairs and service on the beach at the best price around!

First I'll start by saying I'm very "meh" on SB; but she wanted to go so we went. Not wanting to completely break the bank on our way to Key West, we chose this place as a place to "hang our hats". I've stayed in some grody places around the world, so I wasn't completely bothered by the room, but it wasn't reflecting of the price paid (I could care less if it's South Beach or not). The outlets in the room were all worn out, the carpet was pretty bad, bathroom door didn't close, and everything was thoroughly beaten up. But like I said, I'm not that picky, and it was a place to sleep; those are just the highlights. Our view was fine though. Again, we were only there for a night.

We went down to the pool to grab a drink and some food and I'm happy to report they get an "A" for both. Food was great, as were the drinks ordered. Pretty reasonably priced as well. The staff behind the bar were funny and friendly. We then hopped down to the beach from the pool area and life was good again. After some time in the water, we headed back to the pool for her to lay out and for me to be a water rat.... The only negative part was getting out of the pool as it was getting dark/chilly and there were no towels... Asking for a towel only got me a "we don't have any". Nice, I'll just walk back to the room soaked and freezing, thanks for the help!

Was it worth my money? Nah, not really. I'm pretty pleased to see that they're renovating the place now though; let's see what the future holds. The location was actually very nice in my opinion, so take care of the hotel side of things (and maybe Miss "Rude-Without-Towels" by the pool) and it might be worth the money in the future. For now, I'll pass on it.

Room Tip: Make sure you get one of the rooms closer to the ocean; I hear those are the "newer" rooms...

The hotel location is very good, close to the major interests of South Beach.

We stayed in one part of the hotel where the owner made ​​the rental of space for us, but the complex is very nice and beautiful, the pools are great.

Highly recommend.

The outlets si not work, The door did not close all the way. There was no lock on the door. Cracks in the walls and celling, dust, centipedes oh, and BLOOD on the towels. Yeah it was cheap, but not as cheap as the Best Western, and the BW is so much nicer. We had many more complaints, when we brought them to the front desk he just said "okay" like he couldn't care less and went back to whatever he was doing....

I stayed here with my GF during the summer and found the hotel to be located close to the bars and clubs in south beach. You can pretty much walk to all of the bars and resturants without the need of a taxi to get you around. I suggest hitting Pizza Bar at the end of the night. They are located a couple blocks from the hotel and are open late. The slices are huge and the pizza taste wonderful. Valet parking isnt free but comes in handy as parking is a pain in the rear in south beach. The hotel has beach access and the pool is nice.

Stayed here during miami music week and absolutely loved it. The weather was perfect and the pool had a great vibe. The rooms weren't in the best shape but still was close to everything on the strip. The beach is gorgeous and the staff is very friendly. Always pleased when I stay here.

we booked a townhouse at the shelborne. We made a trip and before miami we were in LV, in Vegas we got a phone call from the owner Peter Trifunovic​h and he told us that the hotel was under construction but that we could go there if we wanted. We looked at the condo, it was very nice but we were the only guys in the hotel. Everywere was construction work. Some people had to stop woeking for us to walk to our room. The travel agent Roberto from Miami Reservation Center took good care of us and found a very nice other condo for us, even gave us a complimentary trip to the everglades! Roberto did a nice job but Peter Trifunovic​h doesn't even contact us for the deposit we made! He still owe us! Please don't book your trip with Peter Trifunovic​h, for a good help you should go to Miami Reservation Center.
Beside of the bad experience with the townhouse we had a great time in miami!
