This was supposed to be a girls vacation. We arrived on Tuesday, January 14, 2020. The elevators were not working and we were assigned a room on the third floor (difficult to get up the stairs with large luggage) that had dust bunnies (it had not been vacuumed for some time). The staff was very patient with us and willingly showed us a second room that had a very musty smell - it must have had smokers in there as well. The staff again showed us a third room which was next door to the generators and we could not hear each other talk. We had already paid for our resort fees but did not want to stay here anymore. We asked for our money back as we were going to leave. We were told that we could not get our money back/nor the resort fees. The staff offered us to go to another hotel they owned. We had to pack all our belongings into a cab and head to the Harrison Hotel. We arranged with another kind staff, Beverley, to have her send an e-mail with our concerns. We waited a few days and I kept sending follow-up e-mails and finally a meeting was set up with the Manager Claudia Gordillo, who promised us a return of resort fees and a 15% discount. After following up, only the resort fees were returned to us.

Short two night stay on the way home from visiting Cancun. Was looking forward to our stay but completely disappointed as on arrival we were told the elevator wasn’t working and although booked a twin bedded room was given a double on the third floor! Bathroom towels torn, toilet bowl not flushing or filling properly. Staff not helpful or interested at all. We changed rooms for our second night and found out that the elevator hadn’t been working for over a month! :-( Would not recommend this place at all unless you pay a very cheap rate!

Stayed in south beach for two weeks and booked various nights in different hotels. Have to say that this hotel has the biggest rooms ever. Extremely helpful and personal staff. The hotel is going through a change of ownership and has the potential to be fantastic as it was in the early nineties. From the time we arrived, Claudia, Annabel and Alberto were amazing, so helpful. Although some areas of the hotel need attention which we were told from the time of booking, our experience here with the staff was the best we had on south beach. Old style Art Deco big fabulous sized rooms. On leaving did a cruise we were welcomed back to store our luggage post cruise for a few hours only which was perfect. They didn’t nee to do this, very customer focused indeed. This place is excellent if you want to be a few blocks ( 5 - 10) mins walk from the main strip of ocean drive. Very quiet and nice small breakfast a bonus. The lady at breakfast was just lovely too. The pool area is ok but best to hit the beach, it needs a little work which the hotel are currently acting on but great to sit outside for breakfast. Book this place if you want an excellent location, don’t mind walking 5 mins to beach ( towels provided) and enjoy friendly and very helpful staff. Thank you Claudia, Annabel and Alberto - a really lovely stay !! We will be back. Colin & Darren (UK)

I'm extremely disappointed that I stayed at this hotel. My husband tried to call Priceline to get a refund, but they said it was to late because we checked in. This hotel did not have the basic amenities promised on their website. For example, free parking. Parking is not FREE! You have to do valet parking and its $40. Half of the stuff advertised is false. When I went to my room, we did not have any heat. It was 40 degrees outside and the a.c. was on high. When I called the front desk to have someone come fix it, the rep said the guy who fixes things left for the day. It was like 4pm in the afternoon, and theres no one there to fix anything if something breaks down. Then there was no toilet paper at all in the room. The rep who hardly spoke english gave us another room on another floor. Found out that the elevator did not work, and when I got to the new room that she gave us, I found out that they dont provide cable. So my husband and I had no working t.v.. Basically the hotel does not provide heat, cable, toilet paper, free parking and restaurant. The rep at the front desk told me that I should of brought a laptop, because they at least offer wifi. The only good thing I can say about the hotel is that the mattress is comfortable and the location is good. That's it! This hotel was rated as a 3.5 star hotel, but it's really a 2 star hotel.

Had an absoulutely infuriating stay at this hotel. We got transfered from another SB hotel that had to shut down. We got a room where the airconditon wasn’t cooling. So the room was 80 degrees :( The hotel then told us they had fixed it.. they hadn’t. They told us we’d get a new room, we didn’t get it untill 9pm -After waiting around for hours, not exacly how we wanted to spend our time. Elevator was broken. There was no wifi. When we asked for new batteries for our remote, we were told that they didn’t have any because everything was brand new... that must be with the exeption of the batteries... also the heavily stained carpets all over is worn out hotel. So no T.V either! Pick another hotel!

I had booked in April, so I tried to call the Astor to confirm in Sept. I got no answer. I checked through Booking.com in which I made reservations, to see if still open. I arrived early. they accommodated me. The room was clean and spacious with refrigerator, The bathroom had the deepest tub. They have a Small pool, a bar and seating area in front of building. Location on 10th Street and Washington Ave 3 blooks from beach, On 16th and Washington is the shopping spree of Lincoln Lane on 17th is Marshall's and Macy's. Free trollies stop at the corner and the best dinner is located at 11th and Washington also Burger King Bar, yes bar this Burger King sells beer. Get your whopper and a beer. The place was quite, like closing quite.?

I had a reservation for holidays for five days - two rooms from the 23rd to 28th of december. They have cancelled it out of nowhere, sent me an email through booking and since then don’t answer my e-mails. I had payed almost US$400,00 for the pre-reservation and the simply didint refunded it to me. Try everyday to tal with them and I am simply not getting any answers. Really upset.

One of the biggest rooms we have had on the trip. Clean and well appointed check in staff where helpful and friendly. Location was great for beach and short walk to Lincoln Rd shops. Meter parking across the road was handy much cheaper then valet parking. Breakfast was disappointing knew it wouldn't be a hot breakfast but was late to be set up and basic breads a croissant.But other then that I would definitely stay again.

Having been an airline pilot and IT consultant and stayed at hundreds of hotels Worldwide, for the price and location this is fantastic! We arrived last night and we given probably the best welcome ever by the delightful Latousha and the cocktail bar person! It’s a warm friendly hotel. It’s an old style hotel with character and the room we got was great and fulfilled our needs. Right in the heart of South Beach. It’s south Florida so of course there will be an insect or two! Stop trying to expect a 5 star hotel, you will get 6 star warmth and hospitality! So over the snobbery on Trip Advisor. Prefer this to a snooty 5 star hotel in Miami which also gets an insect or two! The bed was the best I have slept in since we been on this trip. Do yourselves a favour and book into this hotel!
