The Colony Hotel is in a great location! Walking distance to anywhere you'd like to be, and a very cheap cab ride to anyplace outside of the SoBe center, as well as directly across the street to the Lummus park beach access. This is a true boutique hotel, so the room sizes reflect that--but that is expected. It is also older, so it explains a bit of the mechanical issues noted in other reviews--but the hotel staff is on it! They are also very Green there; so between guests they tend to unplug appliances and even turn off the water heater at night to save on energy consumption. But if you happen to fall into the window of when it is shut off and find a cold shower, a 2 second call to the front desk and they turn it on immediately! This place was also spotless; under the beds, in the corners, you name it. I have also never met a friendlier, more helpful or accommodating concierge than Harold. He was always smiling, always patient, always willing to help (be it to carry 5 girls worth of luggage up stairs, or load their luggage for them). He was very honest about clubs to go to and restaurants to eat at--and in no way was he putting other merchants down. He even called us directly when he realized we forgot some of our things, and met us on the curb to load them in for us. A great experience overall--will recommend to anyone in need,and will be the only place I stay at for future South Beach visits.
