The rooms are okay looking but if you have more than two people staying in the room make sure you ask for extra towels right then and there. When my friends and I arrived, we were told to pay an extra $35 because there were more people than expected. So we paid the extra. Then we found out that there... More

For this to even be called a hotel is poor. The rooms are awful. Our room had hairs all around the sink taps, and all over shower - please see attached photos. The noise that comes into the rooms is enough for you to want to jump out of the Windows. I have never stayed anywhere so bad. They claim... More

Quite old-fashioned and small inside. But clean, classic art-deco architecture and in the most central location on Miami beach you could ask for. Looks great from the outside - great for pictures. Staff reasonably helpful but not especially so

The only thing nice about this hotel is its location. This place is a DUMP!!! I couldn't believe how bad it was because all the pictures they have on their web site look so nice, but it is very obvious now that they are all photo shopped. I would have been better off staying at a motel 6. For the... More

We stayed at The Colony Hotel May 2016 with my dad and son. Hallways are old, but room was renovated to be exactly as their website. Beds were comfortant and room clean.

Iconic hotell that looks real cool from the outside. The first impression though, is the restaurant in front with pushy staff and loud music. Its art deco, so they aren't allowed to renovated very much. The windows are very thin which results in no sleep due to the party outside. The AC was making a lot of noice in the... More

Hello, Thank you so much for your feedback and review, with that being said it is unfortunate that you encountered such bad service, but the Columbus Restaurant is an independent business that just happens to lease out a portion of our property. The Colony hotel regrets such bad service. Now in regards to our property it is a know fact... More
