I stayed for 8 nights in late November and early December. The hotel was clean, comfortable and conveniently located in South Beach, with parking and beach a block away. Gym equipment was relatively new and the pool is long enough to do laps in, which is a bonus compared to so many overcrowded hotel pools in Miami Beach. My room...

This hotel is likely the perfect location for a stay in South Beach. The Ocean Drive entrance is across from the beach. Eastern building guests have direct access to the News Cafe 24/7. The main entrance fronts onto attractive Collins Ave. All SoBe sights/shops are a short walk away. No noise issue to report. We were very impressed with the...

For our 7th (!) trip to South Beach, we brought a couple of friends with us, for whom it was a first taste of Florida. Although we've got some very nice stays in Miami in the past, this one was the best. When looking at The Hotel's website, I had the feeling that they "overplayed" a little bit on some...

For my family's first visit to South Beach, we wanted to stay in an Art Deco hotel near the beach that would deliver on both style and service. The Hotel of South Beach surpassed our expectations. We had great service all the way, starting with Daniel's warm welcome upon our arrival, complete with a room upgrade (thank you, Daniel!). We...

Couldn't ask for a better stay. Great location, friendly staff and good value. All of the staff was wonderful and accommodating but if you are lucky enough to get Daniel - you are in for an even better experience. Daniel is one of a kind (that's in a good way). He truly makes you feel at home and like you...

This was our first time in Miami and we wanted to stay in the Art Deco district of Miami Beach. The Hotel of South Beach was well reviewed and did not disappoint. The staff quite impressed us, notably Charles at the front desk and John the concierge, whose advice on getting around the area saved us a lot of money,...

The exterior and communal areas of the hotel are lovely. Art Deco throughout. But our room was dark and dingy and the soundproofing from the adjoining rooms, corridor and room above was dire. This room was not cheap and we were disappointed with it.

To be fair, I would describe this as good rather than average, but Trip Advisor ratings go from Average to Very Good. Three and a half would be more accurate. On the positive side, it's a nice Art Deco building with a rooftop pool, and access to a beach area with beach towels and furniture apparently (we didn't use them)....

This Art Deco hotel has a perfect location on south beach Miami. The surrounding Art Deco blocks are worth seeing and the beach is just one block away. The hotel is fresh and clean with beautiful design. Room was quite small but comfy. The best of all was the full service roof top pool though! But... I was very tired...

“Rooms facing Collins are quieter and possibly more spacious. I think only a few rooms have the bathtub with water jets, so ask for that.”
