5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had my doubts because the hotel has some negative reviews on tripadvisor. However, my stay was very nice. It's a good hotel for a stay of 3 or 4 days. It has not many services and it's a bit old. But it was clean. The location is awesome. Very close to lincoln road.

I booked this hotel because it was a great value for the location. We paid $89 per night plus all the taxes and resort fee (booked right on their website and had a AAA discount). The staff was great, and helped us with every question we had. They also allowed us to check in several hours early, since we had... More

Lucky Day tjstphon! Doesn't always happen with the upgrade but so glad you enjoyed it and that it made a memorable impact for you! Due to the location of the room there tends to be a bit more noise, to the rooms that face the street. Some guests are not bothered by it and rather want to the view, while... More

Rather Clean room but should be renovated. The breakfast was not worth paying for and a little too complicated selections. Good position near beach and center. Noisy suroundings were some building should be renovated to.

This is not a good hotel to stay in! There is some construction going on next to to the hotel and they start at 7 AM. So if you need to sleep late, unfortunately that is not an option! Moreover, they will put random charges on the credit card after you have checked and you have to call the multiple... More

Good Morning bpinaki, We are sorry about the noise, but we are unable to control construction on Miami Beach, however, the law states that construction cannot start until 8 AM. Now that it is finished, there should be minimal noise coming from our neighboring property. Of course we do not put random charges on the credit card. The hotel will... More

Visited Miami and The Dorchester for a medical conference. Despite the bad reviews I booked it because of its convenient location on Collins and close to the conference venue. Upon entering I was impressed bij the courtyard and lobby. Check in was smooth and staff was friendly. Room was very small and bathroom extremely outdated which was in stark contrast... More

This hotel is a piece of crap. They slapped lipstick on a pig. It's an old motel or cheap apartment complex and they redid the lobby. The bathrooms have not been remodeled. The shower trickles water. The drawers in the bed room are broken. Our room faces a construction site and I was awoken at 630am to jack hammers and... More

I booked this hotel after reading the reviews on trip advisor. As you all know some writers can be very harsh about how they review a hotel, me being in the hospitality industry as well i look for other things. Ok lets star with the hotel main entrance...its on the corner and not actually on collins. It looks a little... More

Although the location is very convenient, the hotel facilities are not modern. Bathrooms are pretty old and the shower is not power enough for a relaxing bath. There are some hidden fees that are not mentioned such as resorts fee (USD15) and Parking Fee ( USD 31) which is absurd for this kind of hotel. Unfortunately I would not stay... More

The Dorchester Hotel is not one of the ritzy hotels on South Beach. It is quite affordable. It is perhaps the best hotel in this part of South Beach for the price. If you visit South Beach, you're not going to spend much time in the hotel anyway. Why spend a lot of money for something you're not going to... More

Nice, clean and modern room. South Beach is located just around corner and there is a pool inside Dorchester residence. Wifi works good. Fridge inside room and a Safety Box. New towels every day for the beach activities. Very nice and polite staff. The Hotel is located near good restaurants.
