As I was searching for a last-minute hotel for South Beach, many of the big names were sold out, and some of the party atmosphere ones seemed too much. I settled on the Cavalier. I couldn't have been more happy. I saw the room pictures ahead of time and thought they might be kind of corny, or not really art...

Very well located within walking distance of many of South Beach's restaurants and other destinations, including across the street from the beach. Clean, renovated hotel but rooms are extremely small (even the suites). Walls are so thin you can hear your neighbor's TV as well as all hallway traffic. Continental breakfast included bakery items, fruit, cheeses and meats - enough...

First time at this property and it was just as described....maybe better. The hotel is beautiful and immaculately clean. Parking was a bit of an issue but there is a deck nearby. Staff was friendly and professional. Right across from the beach and towels provided...a real plus. We had the suite and it was perfect! Would stay here again.

Such a cute place. We loved it. Rooms are rather small but very clean and we had a great time. Great location. Watch out for the restaurants around it. They sell cheap food but the drinks are ridiculously priced.

Small hotel right on the beach! Very nice rooms however we didn't have any closet, and not one single hanger to hang any clothes. It is a bit noisy, you will hear everyone passing your room during the night. Excellent breakfast, actually the best I ever had in a US hotel! Fantastic bread and everything fresh! Just one elevator, when...

Rooms very small but not a big deal because we were hardly ever in the room.Close to everything walking distance to Walgreen's and Collins and Washington streets where dining was a lot cheaper and that BED was like sleeping...

1930's era hotel nicely renovated. Smaller rooms but comfortable. Friendly staff, great area with good restaurant. Good breakfast included. Need to know: there's no parking or valet but there's public parking 1-2 blocks away.

Air conditioning is patchy. Internet access keeps going down. Guests coming back drunk shouting down the corridor, slamming doors, and high heals on hard floor echo, and I'm not even a light sleeper. Very disappointed

Wow!!! We loved our stay at the Cavalier Hotel on Ocean Drive in South Beach. This is a renovated, art deco gem of a hotel. Beautiful furnishings, lovely light fixtures, great staff. An excellent experience overall. Walk out the door and right across the street is the beach. Turn to the left or the right and there are restaurants and...
