We contacted the website where we booked this hotel and told us that this property was in an "evacuate zone" and that no one was available at either of their properties. To our surprise they are still charging us for... More

This is a crappy hotel that costs as much as a nicer hotel, but what you're paying for is the blaring insanity of the street it's on. The location is certainly 'nice', if you will, and you luckily can't hear what's going on in the streets until god knows what hour; other than that, it's a crappy hotel that costs... More

Hello we wanted to acknowledge your comments and opinion, however calling the property CRAPPY and without an explanation of what occurred nor contacting me to address your concerns and find a solution is not the proper way in which reviews should be based.

We enjoyed our one night pre-cruise stay at The Colony Hotel. The Hotel staff was friendly and informative. It was very clean. The location is in the middle of South Beach! Everything was within walking distance.
