The hotel is amidst the most hustle bustle area of Miami and thats the only plus point. Rest all is average, the staff, the maintenance, cleanliness. The biggest rip off is the Columbus restaurant at the premises. It seems to be good because its crowded, but the food is terrible, the waiters are not friendly and they charge exorbitantly. The...

The Colony Hotel in South Beach Miami is a great hotel for the price. Cute and quaint, right across the street from the beach; it is not your large, brand name hotel with tons of amenities, but from what I saw I don't think most hotels on Ocean Drive in South Beach are. The staff is knowledgeable, courteous, and laid...

It's definitely not the Ritz or Fairmont, but for the location and the price it cannot be beat, and the room was clean and the staff were pleasant. There are two things you do need to know, though: 1. This is a beautiful old building, and as such it does...

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....
