“An Average Hotel, Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I came back to visit South Beach for the second summer in a row. The staff at the President hotel is very polite and accommodating, we felt most welcomed. We chose this place for the trendy look of the rooms and the location between nightlife and the beach. It was a little rough to keep track of our fresh and worn belongings during our stay as there was no drawer space provided. This is one detailed we overlooked when we booked.

During our stay the room service was hard to predict as the crew would be in the hallway in the late morning through the afternoon but it seemed that we were skipped a few days. We managed and it was no big deal to us, but something that may concern others.

The continental breakfast was very barebones, although we did not try the breakfast items from their menu.

Overall, it's a beautiful city. We came back for the beach experience, the shopping and food. Our intent was not to spend our vacation time indoors and this place served our need at a price we were content paying. The President delivered for the most part what we ordered.

Hello Blackhawks,
We truly appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. We love hearing that you felt “most welcomed” by our friendly team and chose us for our fantastic location and beautifully designed rooms. Thank you for all the feedback. We will take your ideas about providing more space for clothing under careful consideration and examine our housekeeping schedule, to ensure every occupied room is attended to. We also apologize that our complimentary breakfast, consisting of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milk, cereal, orange juice, toast, butter, jelly, cheese, assorted pastries, fresh cut fruit, oatmeal and yogurt, did not meet your expectations. We are thrilled you enjoyed your overall experience with us though and hope you consider The President for your next trip to our exquisite city!

The hotel is very close to Ocean Drive. Nice location . 150 meter walk and you are in ocean drive and in real ocean ! There is valet parking ( $ 30 a day ) on the adjacent corner. Customer relation of valet guys was nice and quick. Also there are closed parking lots in 500 meters. Front office people are very nice and helpful. Thanks to them. Hotel's elevator is very small ( 3 person ) and slow. Also the bed in our room was very squeaky. You are afraid to turn in bed. Lol. Other than these, we felt safe and secure in this hotel. I'd stay again.

Hello Lev011,
We appreciate such a thoughtful review. We’re thrilled to hear you enjoyed our great, convenient location. Thank you for sharing some helpful parking tips with future guests. We apologize that the speed of our elevator didn’t meet your expectations and that you found your bed to be squeaky. Providing a wonderful, comfortable experience is very important to us. We’ll look into both those issues. Thank you for bringing them to our attention. We’re very happy you felt “safe and secure” with us though. That’s so important. Our dedicated team truly appreciates your thanks and hopes you return for another memorable stay soon!

Most hotels of similar size in South beach offer similar prices. What makes me like President hotel better is the rooms are much cleaner and updated. Besides personnel is always very nice. I had stayed in at least 3 other hotels in the area (between 8th and 15th str, either Ocean dr or Collins ave) and this is by far the best ratio. Try their suite with round bed and balcony if you wish. They usually hook you up with a free cocktail once per stay. It could be too loud too late around spring brakes, but I can't say differently for any part of South Beach

As a hotel manager I travel to Miami often. Honestly, rooms could handle some upgrades (mattresses, non working showerhead, hallway carpet) but other than that I love my stay and I would recommend this hotel.The staff makes the place great! Front desk Martha was awesome at late check in, housekeeper on 4th floor took right away care of all our needs (with smile on her face) and manager Esteban was very friendly and helpful. Also beautiful young lady during breakfast and bartender were pleasant! I would hire all of them for my business. Unfortunately let say that it is not really usual in Miami. Location Is great of course and the low season rate was just right.

Room Tip: King rooms on 4th floor with terrace

Booked four nights in June for my girlfriend's birthday. Overall this is a standard budget hotel without any exceptional value. The rooms were relatively clean and the service was friendly. The A/C is top notch so that was a welcome relief. The rooms themselves are very small with just enough room for the beds and nightstand. The bathroom is a closet so impossible for a couple to share. The walls are paper thin so you will hear everyone in the hallways and during other extracurricular activities.
When you book they don't include an additional charge of $21 per night for their "amenities" which include bottles of water, towels for the beach, and a very poor continental breakfast. That being said it is a comparatively affordable hotel so have your expectations aligned with that going in.

Hello Chris,
We hope you and your girlfriend enjoyed a great birthday vacation! A/C during the summer in South Beach is invaluable, we’re glad you appreciated the cool air. We’re sorry the bathroom was too small for your liking, and we’ll take your thoughts into careful consideration. We also apologize that you were unhappy with our resort fee and all it offers. For future reference our resort fee includes; 2 bottled waters each day, breakfast for 2, Wi-Fi, welcome drinks, a discount at The Purple Penguin Café, in room safe and local phone calls. We hope to see you again for some more South Beach fun.

I don't usually write reviews but I had a good experience at The President Hotel. I took a last minute trip to Miami and chose to stay at this hotel because I got a great deal for 4th of July weekend. Front desk staff "Melissa" was very friendly and helpful. Hotel does not a have a parking lot but offer $30/day overnight valet parking. At check in you get a complimentary cocktail and continental breakfast in the morning. Room was descent. Hallway smelled like too much air freshener. Location is 1 block from beach and restaurants. Wet willies, Clevelander are 4 blocks away. I would def book at this hotel again.

3 years ago I stayed for the first time because of the reviews on this site. I just stayed again and this visit confirmed this is my Hotel of choice in South Beach. The staff is very accommodating in every way. Andrew at the front desk is a wealth of information. The hotel is one block from the beach and in the center of shopping and restaurants, you do not need a car if you plan on staying in South Beach. Public transportation is easily accessible. This visit I stayed in the Penthouse w/ the round bed. It's a good deal w/ a rooftop deck and a larger bathroom. The standard rooms are very nice, but bathroom is small & no deck. They do have complimentary continental breakfast which is good enough to start the day. This boutique hotel has a great funky vibe to it. No street noise is heard in the rooms & the elevator has worked at both my visits. The bar & restaurant are part of the lobby and are a great place to hang out. There is also a front patio you can sit at to eat or have drinks and people watch.

Room Tip: Standard room is beautiful, bathroom is small, but very nice. Penthouse w/ round bed is a large w/ a...

Hello,
Thank you for your loyalty; we always love welcoming a familiar face! We’re thrilled you loved the penthouse; waking up to the views from the deck is amazing isn’t it!? It’s great to hear that you appreciated our décor, quiet rooms and breakfast. We’ll be sure to pass your compliments of Andrew along to him; we know it will make his day. We’re also happy that you enjoyed our bar, The Green Bar, and the fantastic people watching from our balcony. We can’t wait to see you again when you next visit South Beach.
