“In the middle of the action.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We arrived around 10am and booked a junior suite. It wasn't ready on arrival, so we had breakfast (not at the hotel) and came back in a few hours and it was ready. We were on the top floor (level 3) and had the corner room. Good views of the beach.

The room was large with free wifi. I think it may also be used as an accessible room, judging by the railings in the bathroom. The bed was lumpy and lopsided. Husband was sleeping lower than I was, kind of odd, so we just kept to our own sides. Lol. At night we could hear music thumping from across the road - there were also earplugs on the bedside to help you with that problem.

I'm not sure if I enjoyed staying in South Beach, the strip is full of expensive restaurants, with annoying waitresses trying to get you in. It was better to walk on the other side of the road and then you get to see the Art Deco buildings. Don't get sucked in by those huge cocktails, they say it's happy hour and it ends up being $50!

I wouldn't stay in this area again however this hotel was good for our first visit.

This is an amazing hotel right in the middle of it all in South Beach at an excellent price. My husband & I stayed one night prior to our cruise. We wish we had more time there! The hotel is very nicely appointed, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are so sleek & modern, though a bit small, which is expected in the Art Deco district. There are ample orange-scented bath amenities supplied in very cool packaging. We also got free M&Ms and a snickers bar to snack on. There's a lot of bang for your buck at this hotel - great location and comfort. I highly recommend!

Room Tip: Upon arrival, ask for a room in the back of the hotel - if you stay in the front above the restauran...

After volunteering in Ecuador for a week, my flight back to New York was Cx due to Hurricane Sandy. I convinced the airline to send me back to the states, which just happened to be Miami. I got to Miami at 5am and to the Room Mate Waldorf Towers just after 6am. Seeing that I was exhausted after being in the airport all day and night and stranded in Miami due to the hurricane they found a room for me to crash in. Then when I woke up later in the day they switched me to my room that I booked the night before in the airport while in Ecuador. This was great and they had no obligation to this for me since check-in is in the afternoon sometime. Besides that, the rooms are very clean, modern, great location, and the staff is great.

Great location across from the beach. Rooms are well appointed and immaculately presented.
Staff friendly and informative. Food was good in cafe downstairs but the prices were expensive compared to other eateries in area, check the bill. No hesitation recommending the hotel though.

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.
