“Splendour in South Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

From a sea of South Beach mediocrity, small rooms and over-priced hotels, emerges a boutique hotel that raises the bar of excellence and service. The Redbury Hotel may not boast a beach front address or a large swanky lobby buzzing with the noise of hipster wannabes, but what it does offer leaves many of the top hotels in its dust. Ok, so what does The Redbury Hotel offer that sets it well above the industry standard? Simply put, a level of personal service and care from a staff which not only takes care of any need you may have, but also anticipates them.

Recently my husband and I celebrated a milestone event in South Beach. The staff at this hotel made sure that our stay at the hotel was indeed memorable from the moment the valet opened our car door and said "Welcome". As we entered the front doors the staff greeted us with warm smiles and a wonderful surprise - they had upgraded our room. Awaiting us in our beautifully appointed and large room was a chilled bottle of champagne. I discussed at length the possibilities of restos. In fact, my relationship with the hotel started well before we arrived. I had many email exchanges with Monique regarding resto choices. She, along with her capable colleagues, worked very hard at not only selecting the perfect combination of restos for our stay but also arranging choice tables for us.

We loved South Beach and we especially loved The Redbury Hotel. We can't wait to return!

Dear linmos,

What a wonderfully written review, Thank you! Not many hotels begin their guest experience pre-arrival, but we are not like most hotels. One thing our team is best at is gathering preferences so that we may anticipate anything you may need. We also love to celebrate special occasions with our guests! Who doesn’t like to start a weekend of R&R with a little bit of bubbles? I am very glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you back again for your next special occasion!

Sincerely,

Florencia Gariboldi

It's been a couple of months since my stay I was escaping the snow storms up in New York but the stay was so amazing I had to let them know. I have never written a review even though I chose all my stays by Trip Advisor but these guys definitely deserved it.

From our first step in the door we were greeted by the manager Sinam WOW! When do you ever see a manager unless you have a problem and it was more than just saying hi she started a whole conversation and we already had some dinner ideas before we even got to the front desk which is only about 5 feet from the door.

The girls at the front desk were lovely (sorry we did not catch their names) and they even gave us an upgrade to a room with a courtyard view. At this point we were impressed.

We got to the room and again wow, such a nice size with lots of storage space which I always need, you need options right ladies? Also they have a cool record player and awesome robes. And even though we were on the first floor there was no noise.

The rest of our stay was just as amazing we got room service our first night from Lorenzo's that was great and this was our first encounter with Bruce he brought us our food, then ice, then some sides for our food always quickly and with a smile. The reason Bruce stood out to us is that he seemed like he was always there even once when we got back at 3am! and even then he asked how our stay was going and if we needed anything.

Next night since our room service was so good we ate in the restaurant which was very nice, great drinks and again great food I loved the gnocchi and fresh gelato for desert.

The rest of our four nights went great anytime we needed extra towels or shampoo etc. it was brought up by someone friendly and always fast.

We went to check out early since we had an early flight and guess who was there again? Bruce! He got us a taxi and even put a room aside in case our flight got canceled.

What a great stay thanks again to Sinam, Bruce and everyone at the Redbury if we make it down to Miami again I know where I'll be staying.

Dear Miss TLnyny,

Thank you very much for the beautiful review! Sinem remembers you well and cannot wait to see you the next time you need a break from the cold winter in New York. Bruce is certainly an asset to the team as well, nothing is ever too much. It makes me happy to hear that our service was swift and the accommodations exceeded your expectations. Consider us your new home away from home! Please do not hesitate to contact me should you need assistance with your next booking.

What a true find. A real gem in the heart of South beach. The hotel rooms were clean, well decorated, and even had a real record player. That's right you know the kind that plays Vinyl Records, and yes, they provided the vinyls to play. The hotel staff were young and seemed to enjoy their jobs. Melissa at the front desk was outstanding. She always went above and beyond. Her pleasant smile and always helpful attitude is a big plus for this new hotel. The attached restaurant is outstanding. Great happy hour. The grilled octopus should not be missed. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone. They have reciprocal memberships with hotels that have gyms and a beach club. Great job, Redbury!

Dear TA Member,

Thank you for the amazing review. I love the feeling of a genuine smile, when someone truly enjoys taking care of others you can tell right away. Lorenzo has a wonderful happy hour menu and you tasted one of my favorite dishes as well while you were here! If you come back to visit us again, let us know your music preference and we will make sure to have some new vinyl’s for you to play. Hope to see you soon!

We spent a night at the Redbury and thoroughly enjoyed it. Parking is pricey, but that's South Beach. The staff at the hotel was fabulous and it was nice to see the upgrades they are making at the rooftop pool with new landscaping and chairs. Being able to use the Raleigh and SBS pools and facilities is nice. The restaurant at the Redbury was great. We will stay again, I think...

Room Tip: We stayed in a "superior" room (Cheapest one) which has no view - think alleyway - so if t...

Dear Ladynolefan,

We certainly have come a long way since we opened, especially on the rooftop pool. I agree it looks much more beautiful with the new landscaping. In a few weeks we will have a full bar for you to enjoy and the Chef’s herb garden finished as well. I think it has potential to be Miami Beach’s new hot spot. Please reach out to me before your next visit, I will make sure we have a couple of cocktails waiting for you at a poolside lounge chair.

I had a great stay at The Redbury this past weekend. Hotel was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Convenient beach access offered at the Raleigh across the street. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. I was given a complimentary room upgrade upon check-in as thanks for being a first-time guest and was also given a coupon for a complimentary cocktail at their bar. The bar drinks were innovative, fresh and delicious and the talented bar tender Mike was a pleasure to chat with. Look forward to staying here again soon.

I always say, first impressions are forever and you need to make them count! It is great that our hosts were able to get you a nice upgraded room! Of course, a complimentary drink is a must when starting a vacation. I will be sure to pass on the compliments to Mike. We would love to have you back again soon!
