“Amazing Sobe Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful hotel located in the heart of Sobe. The pool and beach are amazing for relaxing in style, though service is spotty at best. The decor and ambiance are some of the best on the beach. Service at the front desk is very friendly and attentive.
The rooms, however, while well appointed are extremely small. Paid about $700 for an ocean view room and the ocean was visible only if you look out a small corner of the window and try to look around the building. Bathroom was impossibly small. Bed was very comfortable, though you only get a comforter and no top sheet. The air quality in the room was terrible, almost smelled like the previous guests had been smoking in there. The A/C was either arctic or stuffy. My allergies went crazy the entire stay.
Overall if you're looking for a hotel where you don't plan on being in your room much and plan on spending your time enjoying the amenities that the rest of the property has to offer, you can't go wrong with the Delano. If you're looking for luxe comfort though, this is not the place for you.

Hello,
Thank you for your review.

You gave us four stars and we appreciate that, however, the most positive note for you was our location. We certainly could have gone further and done far better with the aspects of the hotel that we can control. (Pool service, air quality in rooms, etc..)
Our standard rooms are of standard size for boutique hotels in Miami Beach. We do have several categories though and I'm happy to tailor the specifics a bit for you next time around. Please feel free to contact me personally. (lee.greenspan@mhgc.com) I'm happy to help deliver what our guests deserve should you be returning.

Many Thanks,

Lee

The Delano is one of my favorite hotels in the USA! This hotel made me a huge fan of Morgans Group Hotels. Stayed in a poolside bungalow and it was amazing! Love the Philippe Starck designed rooms. The poolside bungalows are great because you can walk right out to the pool or have a nice lunch on the porch. The food is amazing throughout the hotel. Some of the best room service I have ever experienced. They will even make some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies! My favorite part of this hotel is that they never say no! Anything you ask they make happen! Can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: Poolside bungalows are the best!

The Delano was highly recommended by tripadvisor and yelp, so we gave it a try. It was $440 a night for what turned out to be a very small room with a tiny bathroom. It is a very pretty hotel, and certainly has hip clientele, but we were disappointed by the value for the price. We couldn't even check in on time, so they gave us free drinks at the Rose Bar, which was nice, but the drinks weren't well made. Valet took forever, the bathrooms don't have tubs, and the "ocean view" was about a 12" bit of window. The beach is very nice and has great chairs that they set up for you. The pool is nice but we could never get a chair. The bar service by the beach was very sporadic and semi-rude. The restaurant and room service was very limited and expensive, and tips are automatically added to your bill. ($32 for a cheeseburger, and $20 for a martini.) so, all that said, I wouldn't recommend it.

If you want to see any celebrities, this is the place to go. The hotel itself is a hangout for a who is who in the Celebrity World. But you better make sure you dress the part, and spend the part. If you every want to pretend you are celebrity for a day, this is where to do it.

If you want a true SOBE experience, a stay at the Delano is a must. It's one of the original SOBE hotels that many have come to try and copy. Yes, it can be noisy, the bathrooms are small and their aren't many windows or balconies, but it's one of the coolest hotels you will ever experience. Nothing like walking through the lobby or lounging at the pool.

Room Tip: City side is noisy with street sounds and beach side is noisy with DJ music.

The lobby is Open Open Open! Hello Miami! The feel is Artsy, Cultural-eeee and uptown in a downtown comfortable way. Perfect! The art on the walls, which they change periodically is a fantastic touch! I always make this one of my stops, every time I head to Miami Fl which is 4 times a year. Don't miss this stop and if you feel like splurging, spend a night or weekend there. it is worth every dime, as Memories, are really all you can enjoy & collect in life.
