Spent a night here with my girlfriend while hopping around south Florida. The hotel was amazing. The staff and outdoor patio are at the top of my list 10/10. If you are in need of a great place to stay in the heart of South Beach, look no further.

Hotel's Favorite
After reading many reviews, we decided to stay at Gale. We had 8 nights in the hotel, so we really were able to experience the hotel and all of the facilities. First, we had an excellent stay and we will return. The location is perfect. The design is cool and the facility is immaculate. Even though our room was on busy Collins, it was very quiet. I recommend that you spend some time at the rooftop pool. The staff was attentive and efficient. We are Hilton Diamond members. We were welcomed with open arms and treated like cherished customers. It is clear that Kevin, the manager, is dedicated to the guest experience. If you need anything, just ask. We enjoyed the lobby restaurant a few times. With so many choices in South Beach, it is tough to select where to go. Dolce, the restaurant, is exceptional. Don't miss it. A few tips: We had a car. It is far easier to use cabs and Uber if you are able. Parking is a hassle in South Beach. I have stayed in many South Beach boutique hotels. In general, the rooms are small, The character of boutique buildings means that the rooms were designed in a different era. If you love the boutique vibe, please remember that the art deco buildings come with smaller rooms from another era.

We celebrated my daughters 15th birthday there with 3 rooms and about 9 girls. Prior to arriving I contacted the manager Kevin who was super helpful in giving us 3 rooms close together and making sure we had a table in the room to set up the cake. We were on the first floor. The rooms were super clean, modern and very spacious. The parking is at the rear of the building off of James street. There is valet, but there is overnight parking in the lot right next door if you decide to park yourself. The only disappointment was that there was no one at the valet when we arrived and you have to go inside the hotel and leave your keys at the front desk if you want to valet. There was also no one to help carry our bags from the car when we arrived and no one to help with the bags brining our bags to the car when we left. I was told there would be a 15 minute or so wait for a bell person because he was helping someone else. Not sure how many bellpersons they have working but I assume that Covid has staff down to a minimum. Those were my only gripes for the hotel. The staff was great and check in/out was easy. The hotel pool was heated and had a beautiful view. Towels are available at pool side. There seemed to be enough lounge chairs but we came later in the evening. I think they said the pool closes at 8 pm. We didn't visit the hotel pool during the day. The Gale hotel has reciprocity with the Shelborne hotel beach club for use of their pool and beach. The Shelborne is about a block 1 1/2 down from the hotel. You just walk through the Shelborne hotel to the pool, show your room key and they will get you two chairs and two towels for each room you have. You can have the chairs on the beach or pool. If you go to the beach, you might want to go by 10 am because they ran out of the cushions that go on the beach chairs. You can rent an umbrella if you want cover for an extra charge. They serve food and drinks on the beach and at the pool. At the beach they have a waiter come to you. I thought we could charge the bill to the room but I had to leave my credit card. We ordered food on the beach but it can get pricey. The pool area has loud music pumped in so it depends on what type of vibe you want. At night, Lincoln Road mall is about a block and 1 1/2 away going out the back of the hotel. Tons of restaurants and shops. The beds were amazing. Not too hard, not too soft. The pillows were a bit hard but I like mushy pillows. They provide some toiletries, a hairdryer and robe. The refrigerater holds about 12 cans of soda. You really couldn't put any food in it though. Their is also a safe in the room but it didn't appear to be bolted down so not sure its really that helpful. S.J. the other manager was really nice as well. There is a bar at the hotel and the scene looked very chill but was pretty busy. Unfortunately I didn't get to check out the bar or restaurant but would love to go back and get use of some more of the facilities. It's a small boutique hotel with great staff and management. Would definately recommend to anyone.

I contacted the hotel on a while ahead of my weekend stay for my sister’s birthday celebration. I asked if they could help me set up a birthday surprise in the room when we arrive. The team texted me along the way to get specifics but took care of everything effortlessly and we had a room full of balloons, champagne, and cake when we arrived. Throughout the weekend stay we felt like celebrities because all of the staff knew us. This is my new official South Beach hotel. The rooftop pool is awesome and exclusive. The location is a block north of Lincoln road shopping and a block west of the ocean. Plenty of food options and fun. Loved it!!!

My wife and I just had a wonder stay at this great little boutique Curio Property. Everything from the rooftop (heated) pool to service was top notch. The GM Kevin Waldstein went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one! The location is right in the middle of everything. Don’t hesitate to stay here!
