“Birthday Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Definitely a party hotel in the middle of the South Beach strip. The hotel employees were very pleasant. The rooms were nice but I thought there would be at least a small refrigerator and microwave, I guess they were for rent only.
The only thing I didn't like was my ocean front room. The hotel split up a party and my room was in the middle of theirs where they were banging their doors going back and forth between rooms instead of switching my room to accomodate the bigger party. I hardly got any sleep my last two nites but I was compensated!
All in all I wasn't suppose to sleep anyway because it's South Beach and a great time was had by all in this hotel.

We stayed here a few weeks ago, the front desk staff bell hops and cleaning ladies were all great!!! Welcome drinks were much appreciated. Fast check in and check out! We will definitely stay here again! The small private pool on the Essex side was a real plus.

My friends and I stayed here first week of June and it was such a pleasure. The staff are very friendly, and Brad the host was very accomodating and pleasant. The rooms are very clean, and the cleaning ladies are very trustworthy. We would literally leave our valuables in the room while we shop or go to the beach, and we would come back and see all of them lined up. The best part about the hotel is that you dont even have to leave to the vicinity to have a good time. Everything you need is right there. I definitely would come back and If you wanna have a great time, I suggest you go to this hotel. totally worth it!

Stayed here in May and we had a great time

Positives:
+Very friendly and helpful team, the guys on reception are ever so kind
+It is a party hotel, but the security are very efficient, and you aren't allowed to wonder around the hotel without proof of your stay within the hotel.
+free entry to the hotel partys
+As I said before it is a party hotel, but we stayed on the 5th floor and you cant hear anything from your room, the ear plugs they leave in room were not needed.
+Clean rooms, plenty of towels, soaps, shampoos etc

Negatives
- Bathroom doors are quite transparent and its so awkward trying to use it in privacy when sharing with friends, they really should change it
- Food, big portions but the quality wasn't that up to scratch, often looked around and saw plates left full of food
- Some of the hotel guests seem to be quiet young and loud, deffo a spring break dorm room vibe at times, but i guess its just luck of the draw who books in at the same time as you
- Music at night is very repetitive, even though they brought in different dj's they seem to play the same music. But there are a million other places in Miami to go and listen to different music.

All in all i'd give this hotel a 8/10
we had a fab holiday and Miami is an amazing place!

Room Tip: Requesting a room in the quiet part of the hotel should ensure your able to get a good nights sleep

The clevelander is infact one of the best hotels i have even stayed in miami. The staff there were great and always ready to assist me. I booked for an ocean view room and it was exactly what i got . the room was very clean and ma view was just amazing.Perfect place for the young to middle age group of people who wanna experience miami and its night life. The location was just in the heart of south beach.i was soo pleased of its location. It obviously not the best place for you if u looking for honeymoon quiet area, is just a place for party people. The bar keeps you awake every night with the vibrant atmosphere of music and dance.It is definately worth staying in the clevelander hotel.

The hotel itself is very trendy, with nice and comfortable rooms and a very friendly staff. But of course, keep in mind that party goes on here until 5 AM every day; so don't expect to get a good and long rest. In my case I went here for 1 night and wanted to go out, so it was an excellent choice because if you stay here you don't pay the cover charge for the pool bar and you can access the rooftop bar as many times as you want.

So to sum up, it's a great place to stay only if you want to party and if you don't care to sleep just a few hours.

We came to Sobe to get away from the cold rain and dreary spring of NH. Our travel agent suggested the Clevelander when we told her we wanted to be in the midst of the action, and she hit it right!
Our room was ocean front, with a private deck, and overlooked the action both in the Hotel and on Ocean Drive. What a wonderful way to be involved in the Carnivale atmosphere of Sobe in all its intensity. We quickly forgot about the dismal weather we left behind and embraced the city. A great get away and a great hotel, thanks Miami!
