Stayed here for 4 nights and were pleased with the cleanliness, size & service we received. Free drinks in the lobby at happy hour was a bonus, and a voucher for the excellent sushi restaurant was much appreciated. Their cocktails really got the night started!

The staff of the hotel and the restaurant / bar are absolutely amazing! I have never experienced more helpful and personable employees. Bartender Kevin is the best - all his recommendations were exceptional and makes the experience entertaining and wanting to come back. Management is doing everything right!

Great location, super friendly and helpful staff. They have complimentary happy hour in the lobby in the afternoon with free wine and beer. They give you a snack and drink voucher to the restaurant that is attached to the hotel, Zen Sai. You have full access to their sister hotel right beside them to the roof top cabanas. Rooms are...

All the people in the hotel were very nice and friendly! Hotel in awesome location. Only thing is I wish there was more self parking, but I don't think you will find that at many hotels in Miami. I also wish the food and drinks in the adjoining sushi restaurant wasn't so expensive. Camilo Domingo was wonderful at the front... More

I had a brief 2 night stay the first week of October. The room was spacious and the bed so large, even my wild sleeping toddler had enough room to sleep without me having a foot or an elbow in my side. The staff is absolutely wonderful. I feel they are the best in customer service in South Beach. I... More

Chad, the concierge for the Essex House and Clevelander, tops of the list of the best concierges I have ever dealt with. I've had excellent concierges in 5-star hotels in Europe, but rarely anyone I would rave about in the U.S.--until now. I wanted help arranging a birthday surprise for a couple of friends at the Essex House, and he... More
