Stayed at the Colony for four nights, 31st March to 4th April 2014. I was a bit wary as had read some excellent and some terrible reviews. The terrible reviews are ridiculous, moaning about rip off prices at the bar/restaurant next to hotel. Firstly I don't think the Hotel owns these, like many on the strip they are leased. The prices are expensive, especially drinks, but they are no dearer here than an other cafe restaurant on the strip. It is the South Beach after all and you have to pay these prices. About $8 a beer $16 a spirit and $32 a cocktail - plus sales tax plus mandatory 20% tip.
Anyway back to the Colony, it is a beautiful Art Deco hotel. Very clean, great staff, towels and bedding changed daily. Remember it is an old building so room sizes small but perfectly adequate. We absolutely loved it. The location is great, as you would expect as built 90 years ago so premier spot directly across the beach.
But the big thing is the price, very very competitive compared to other hotels on the strip.
And you need to remember this, you are getting a great experience at an excellent price.
I cannot believe some of the negative reviews, the Colony is a charming hotel, very well run and a delight. I recommend highly. Many thanks to the hotel staff and big big thanks to Mr Nunez.
