I enjoyed my stay at the pelican. We were there for one week. greeted with a friendly smile and don't know why were upgraded to a junior suite but were very happy. Its right across the street from the beach, and all the action on south beach and their beach lounge chairs are very comfortable. There's no pool but who...

A great boutique hotel in the heart of South Beach. If you are hoping to not hear any noise - you shouldn't stay in South Beach. My room was cute, clean and spacious. Frankie greeted me at the front desk every morning and was so helpful. The housekeeping staff was thorough and very quick. I loved the themed rooms. My...

We stayed here for 3 nights in May and they have a truly great location in the historic Art Deco district of South Beach on Ocean Drive. The Diesel design influence is evident throughout the hotel and was the main reason we stayed here and didn't consider any other property, however, in hindsight I could have done more homework as...

We come to South Beach once a year from Las Vegas to relax & some beach time. We always visit the Pelican Hotel Restaurant on Ocean Drive for their 1/2 price specials. Huge drinks and the seafood is always fresh not to mention the live music for fun..

We got here by accident thanks to an Expedia confusion - thought we were booked at the Pelican in Fort Lauderdale - oops! But we went with it because it was getting late. We arrived annoyed and tired but the front desk guy was great - he squelched our bad moods with his awesome personality and suggestions for dinner AND...

Love this hotel...the front desk was amazing and the customer service was off the charts...our needs were more than met...the rooms are beautiful and each has its own design and theme...we stayed in the executive zebra, the view was perfect and the room was unlike any we'd ever stayed in...very good area, I highly recommend this hotel!

Hotel was very good, great location and walking distance from everything. It was very convenient to use valet parking considering you don't need to worry about finding parking or paying on both however, they take about 20 minutes to get your vehicle.

I made a reservation and cancelled it well within time to get a refund of the deposit. 10 days after the cancellation, I still have no refund and had to open a dispute with the credit card company. Not fun.

Dear Mr. Plante, It's quite unfortunate that your bank delayed the refund to your account. Please note that following your cancellation of April 4th, we immediately refunded your account that week. It is then up to your bank to provide you with the credit. From our end-the funds were released on time and refunded. Cheers! Lupe Castillo

The Pelican is a great place from which to explore South Beach. It is well located across the street from Miami Beach and in the middle of the main drags. Fun just to sit in the Hotel's outdoor cafe and people watch. The hotel itself is modest, but clean and interesting. Each room is decorated differently in a theme unique...
