A great hotel to stay at if you want to stay on Ocean Drive, South Beach.
It is in the heart of Ocean Drive, right in the middle; the beach is across the road; Lincoln Road is just up the road; the Clevelander has several awesome bars, including outside on the ground floor, which makes it party central and Ocean Drive's other big party place, Mango's, is a few doors down.
The staff are really friendly. You also get a frozen pina colada on arrival.
The rooms were a touch on the small side and suffered from a lack of storage space for your clothes but the beds were really comfy and the shower was excellent.
Given that the hotel is such a party place i wondered whether we'd get any sleep at all because of the noise. All but one of the nights we stayed we were out until the bar closed but on our first night we went to bed early and i didn't hear any noise from the bar at all. The only problem with noise comes from your corridor outside your room. The bedroom wall/door adjacent to the corridor is not soundproofed and you can hear anyone talking outside which ought not to happen.
Anyway, although quite expensive, the Clevelander is THE place to stay on Ocean Drive. We would stay again if we ever return to South Beach (which i'm sure we will!)
