“Amazing room and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We had an amazing experience. The front desk staff, Jamal, was very helpful and accommodating. We had to leave our other hotel in the middle of the night because of bed bugs and he helped us out and made us feel at home. The hotel was very nice, fun and in the heart of south beach.

I don't waste time with reviews, but Clevelander deserves it.

The best place to have drinks and people watch in Miami Beach, the employees are all cool, just walk in and they are all smiling. entrance is free, no dress code, no red ropes, no b**s like all the other places on the Beach.

I'm a local and I go to the Clevelander. Even the owner Mike P is cool, he is always speaking with guests making sure all details and everyone has a good time.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: they installed noise proof windows so its quiet even with a pool view, all rooms are cool, always ha...

Great hotel with excellent people watching. We were visiting for our anniversary which also happened to be Art Deco wknd. We arrived early Friday and our room wasn't ready so we drank at the pool bar for a couple hours and people watched. Be careful-the $2 doubles will hit you FAST but it's a great deal. We found that the clevelander had cheaper and stronger drinks than other bars. The food is greasy and delicious too. Our room was ready around 3pm. We were kinda disappointed they didn't do anything since we told them we were there celebrating our anniversary and that we met there 3 years ago. We weren't expecting anything but it would have been a nice touch. Anyways-we stayed in room 203. The room is on the front corner of the hotel facing ocean dr and the pool area. Do not stay there unless you plan to party until 4am every night. The bass and music was so loud but we used ear plugs and usually were tipsy when we went to bed so that helped. The rooms are small but updated and modern with clean sleek lines. The front desk was helpful and accommodating. Overall a great stay. We will return but probably won't stay there again just due to the noise.

probable a lot of fun if your young and interested in partying all night. Heard everyone all night long on the 4th floor. So much security, guys dressed in black at every door, made me wonder what went on. Street was closed, had to drag suitcases in from parking structure, to Ocean entrance. The boys in black wouldn't let us cut in side. Friday night with suitcases on Ocean. lots of fun. (not) Room small, ocean view was pretty, directly east. Air conditioner frigid, couldn't adjust to warm up. The guys at check in were terrific, personable and very helpful. We were going to stay 4 days but opted out after 2 for a quieter place. no issues with checking out except parking. We had to use the parking structure behind hotel; we were told that they had agreement with hotel. they made us pay the full 4 days upfront. no refund when we left early. my suggestion would be to just pay them by the day as hotel guest, in case your plans change.

While spending an afternoon in Miami Beach for the first time in our lives, we passed by the Clevelander which has a large outdoor restaurant bar. What caught our attention was the GoGo dancers that were performing on several of the mini-stages.

We had some time to kill so sat down and enjoyed the entertainment. The waitstaff was quite friendly and the entrainment was fun.

We read about the larger entertainment floor and wished that we could have stayed to enjoy some of South Beach night life. We hope that during our next visit we can spend an evening enjoying what should be a wonderful time.

I booked the Rock Star Suite for my daughter for her 21st birthday (December 13-14, 2013) and have to say the whole experience was outstanding. Can't say enough about Rock Star host Chad Moreau who made sure my daughter and her friends had the best time ever! Front desk staff was equally over the top and my daughter ended up having the time of her life! Thank you Chad for everything you did - from the welcome frozen cocktail to the gift basket and bottle of champagne in her room - you ROCKED!

Room Tip: The Rock Star Suite is awesome and on the 3rd floor. Overlooks the pool area down below and a great...

You check in and they give you a frozen drink to melt away the stress of your travels... Check into your room and if you are on the "Pool Side" don't expect to get much sleep. But isn't that why you are in Miami?? Enjoy the multiple levels of Bars or walk across the street to South Beach and chill out! My girlfriend and I partied all night at the outside bar.. we got called up onto the stage.. it was crazy.. We can’t wait to go back someday!
