Worst hotel ever. Impossible to list all the stuff that are wrong with this hotel: Party outside all night. Music from their restaurant “Bacon bitch” at the lobby starts with loud music at 7:30. They moved us from room 210 to 224 because there was a smoke detector battery piping. They left the old smoke detector inside the walls, yes, hilarious. AC had terrible noice. No safe is working .Staff not very friendly.

After a long week, we arrived at South Beach. We were hot and tired and found an oasis at the Essex House. The staff, especially Christine, Rosemary and your male staff member with the dark wavy hair, made sure we had everything we needed to include a recommendation for an awesome Nail Salon. Thank YOU!!

Dirty room without an apology, Bart was horrific and when we tried to find a manager, we couldn’t. We get like it was like pulling teeth. The location was great and some of the staff were too. MYbe will try again.

I stayed one night at the Essex Hotel with my husband and son. The location is great! One short block from Ocean Drive! The decor however, should definitely be a priority, and we did see a sign announcing the property is being upgraded, although nothing was happening in the lobby or room areas that we could see. I can appreciate that it’s a retro boutique hotel, but the style is no longer attractive or charming. Our room was ok. It was clean and quiet. I do have a pet peeve about double beds in a hotel room, as I feel they should be queens, but that’s not exclusive to the Essex. The covered porch area is nice & great for relaxing & people-watching. Breakfast is served next door at The Clevelander, which is a sister hotel. The complimentary food was simple (bagels, cereal, etc.), but was fine for us. The staff however, seemed to be asleep in the job. Refills were made only when a guest pointed it out, and no one was bothered to clean tables after people had left. Once the renovations are complete, I’d like to see the end result.

We are pleased you chose us for your overnight stay. Since we are in the Art Deco District, we are historically protected and, therefore, are unable to make any adjustments to the building itself. As for our rooms, we are in the process of remodeling to enhance our guest experience. We also apologize for the service issues you experienced in our restaurant and assure you we will share this with our team so we can be more diligent going forward. On a positive note, we are glad you were pleased with our location and our breakfast. It was our pleasure hosting you, and we hope you will revisit to see our newly updated accommodations soon.

This hotel was incredibly well located and the accommodations were great. We had a Superior King on the 3rd floor with a panoramic view of Collins. We were a 5 minute walk to the beach and the property itself was very clean and the entire staff friendly. I want to specially recognize Leandro at the front desk. He is literally the best front desk employee I have ever encountered. Genuine, warm and friendly! Truly an asset to the hotel!
