Needed an overnight in Miami and wanted to be somewhere lively - it was that. Music and life until early hours (unlike most of Florida). Great position opposite beach on main road. The service and assistance was great. The hotel reception was clean and manned by a professional team. Very pleased with the rooms in terms of cleanliness and functionality....

I stayed with my girlfriends from 3/17-3/19 at the Colony Hotel. Let's just say it was the worst experience we have all ever had in South Beach! The staff was very rude and not helpful at all, the hallways were filled with drunk frat boys running up and down the hallway and banging on the doors and there was NO...

Jessica, Sorry to hear about the issues you had during your stay.

Ordered one "big drink", tasted awful and costed almost $60. The hookah were also expensive (you get cheaper and better at Lincoln road) and you have to pay in cash. Hookah is seperated from the colony, but you get it at the table with your drinks. We doesn't recommend this place for anyone....

Recently stayed here for 2 nights during spring break! We weren't there for spring break but just happened to be returning from a trip to Haiti during that time.

Close to everything that's happening and reasonably priced. We love going to Haulover to the nude beach so it's only a 30 min drive. Super friendly people at the front desk Would stay here again volleyball across the street every morning

For anyone interested in being in the absolute thick of things on South Beach, The Colony is ground-zero, while not being budget-breakingly priced. The cost of our clean and modern room was comparable to a mid-level Manhattan hotel. Though clearly built in an earlier era, The Colony is well-maintained and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the location...
