“Good value on Ocean Drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

If you don't want to pay for a pool or a big room but want to be on Ocean Drive, this is a good spot. Our room was clean, the king size bed was great, and the bathroom had a high shower (always a plus for a tall guy). The staff was great, they helped us out with everything we needed. We'll come back here again next year.

We loved the decor and overall feel of the waldorf towers miami- our was just right for the two of us.. Only downside was since the location was so great on Ocean drive- there was a little noise at night with the night clubs and taxis late at night.. They provided ear plugs for all the guests so they are aware of the problem.. But what can you do, guess it's just part of being in such a great location!

Overall, had a great experience at this hotel. Was traveling with my girlfriend to South Beach for a night to get away. This hotel is located right in the heart of South Beach, prime location. It can be a bit noisy at night, but nothing unexpected for the location.

The service was great--everyone was very helpful and friendly, the hotel even upgraded our room for free due to availability.

Overall, rooms are a little small, but all of the hotels in this area are similarly-sized. The rooms are clean and well-maintained. Bed very soft, maybe not ideal for some, but fine for us.

I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for a great spot right on the beach and in the middle of all the south beach action.

Nice and clean. Very good customer service! Stayed there for 1 night at my first time in Miami. Ocean drive is THE place to go especially if you have only a short amount of time available. The Waldorf is very centrally located and a top choice.

While on a business trip, my flight home was cancelled (NY snow storm!). The hotel I was previously staying in was booked for the night and I needed to find a place STAT! Thankfully, Room Mate not only had availability, but they accommodated my request for an early check-in so I could continue my work day, virtually, uninterrupted. The rooms are a bit small, but was no real issue for me. The room was clean. The staff was wonderful and very friendly. Location is great, especially for non-business travelers. Biggest draw back was the noise, but they kindly provide ear plugs which is helpful.

Hi Rebecca
We have very good comments but your one is sweet, very sweet from you appreciating something that some times and I still dont understand, is not even mentioned at all, and is the way we take care of everyone from the first time they get in touch with us. For us is simple, treat the others as you would like to be treated, but seriously the way youve said it has been realy touchy
Thanks again for your what youve said, and be sure we are waiting for you any time you would like to come back

We stayed there recently for one night before our cruise. My husband had emailed them before we arrived letting them know we were on honeymoon. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist when we arrived who congratulated us and told us we had been upgraded to an ocean view room. The room was very nice, compact but containing everything we needed and very clean. They had decorated the room with rosé petals and balloons which was a nice touch. We stayed in 3 different four star hotels in Florida as part of our trip and this is the only one who made any fuse over us as a honeymoon couple. You could hear some noise from the street at night but this did not bother us and I think it is unavoidable if you want to stay on ocean drive.
