5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Stuff was excellent, room was very beautiful - we are very happy we dropped by Waldorf Towers on our honeymoon. we saw Miami beach through our room window and went to swim in the morning. the breakfast was nice in the hotel outside terrace. Stuff was incredibly friendly and helpful - although we hadn't listened to one of the good their advise and too the public buss to center instead of taxi. That was a mistake :) we would return to this hotel anuytime with joy. Computer on the registration desk is highly helpful for european travellers.

Room Tip: you can see Miami beach through your windows. Fantastic!

The location is amazing, the room is well furnished and really nice.
Free wifi of course.
They provide apples for free in the lobby.
You had to take a valet parking, it's quite expensive but it's the case almost everywhere in Miami. It was really a pleasant stay.

I enjoyed Brunch and Dinner at the Waldorf Tower sidewalk cafe. It's bustling and carefree. The wait staff were attentive and pleasant. The value for the meals and drinks were average for the area. I would recommend this eatery as a good choice.

Despite some rude staff members, them not having me reservations, and having to switch rooms, it was a nice hotel. Do not sleep more than two people in each room or you will be miserable. The suites are a great size but the room with the two twins or two doubles are very small and can be really uncomfortable with more than two people in them. The restaurant is great, and the bar is great as well. It was clean and best of all the location is perfect!

Room Tip: Pay the extra money for a suite!

When my boyfriend and I first arrived to the Room Mate around 1:00 PM, we asked if there were any rooms available and we were told by the Front Desk manager, Laz, that there was one room available at that time on the first floor, but after reading reviews about the rooms on the first floor being able to hear a lot of noise from the street, we opted out on that room. So we asked if we could stay in a room on a higher floor and Laz told us that would be possible but we would have to wait until 3:00 because some of those rooms were not available as of yet. So he took our bags, put them in a side room to hold for us, as we went to explore SoBe. We came back around 2:30/2:45PM and luckily there was a room available at that time on the 3rd floor!

My boyfriend went to pay for our 4 night stay, but his card kept giving him trouble because of his daily limit from his bank that he did not know about at this time. So after a couple times of trying, Laz said that we could just pay for one night and come down the next day to pay the rest. With all the aggravation with my boyfriend's bank, Laz offered the both of us complimentary mimosas from the bar and he also gave us vouchers to three hot clubs in the area! This was our first time in SoBe, so we wanted to know where to go, where to eat, etc. Laz was the man! He helped us out a bunch upon our arrival, he was very friendly, and just a cool and professional person! He also directed us to this amazing Cuban local restaurant, Puerto Sagua, which was superb. It was so good we went to dinner there again the next day.

The room was very modern, clean, and chic. The view from our room wasn't the greatest, but who cares! Housekeeping came to our room each day, even one day when we didn't leave until 4:00 in the afternoon, we came back around 5:00 it had not been cleaned, but the maid came to our room 20 minutes later asking if we needed it to be cleaned. We left, came back a couple hours later and it was spotless. I have never known for a room to be cleaned typically after 3:00! The maids were very friendly as well.

Lastly, on Saturday, we were inquiring about how to purchase tickets for Miami Carnival and Ana at the front desk was more than helpful for looking up this information on the computer for us. She took down numbers and called people to find out how we can do this. Then she looked to see what type of transportation we could take to get to the Carnival at Sunlife Stadium. I believe the General Manager was there as well and she suggested that we rented a car, which we ended up doing because it was the cheapest and quickest way for us to get there.

Overall, we had an amazing experience at the Room Mate Waldorf. It was in the livest area on SoBe, the price was great, and all of this just made my 21st birthday amazing. Thank you to the excellent staff at Room Mate. I will be recommending this hotel to my family and/or friends that will visit Miami. We will definitely be back!

Everything was super in this hotel. Hotel is just in the center of most attractive street in Miami South Beach (2 minutes to beach).

Ok the walls in the hotel are really thin and outside of reception is a restaurant with loud music, but I do not know if were just licky, but our room was in 2nd floor on the other side of the hotel, so we did not heard nothing. Room is in modern design, with huge and comfortable bed, clean and quite large toilet....

The front desk is extremely helpful, specially Anna. We got an early check-in which was helpful as we were with my 15month old daughter. You can't have a better location than this. Center of ocean drive & just in front of south beach. Rooms are spacious, clean & beautiful. Though I was told there could be bit of noise due to the bar "Mangoes" is next to the hotel, but I could hardly hear anything. They also provide beach towels.
The restaurant on the porch is also very good for value & food. (tried few others but liked this one).
Though it is bit expensive, but it is worth paying extra for the benefits you get. The good thing is that you get valet parking for $25 (for any number of in/out) per day which makes life easier.
