Location Location Location... this place has it. Right smack in the middle of Ocean Drive. If you want to experience SoBe, then this is the spot. Front desk person was very pleasant and accomodating, letting me check in before my friend who reserved the hotel arrived. The room was clean - floors, sheets, bathroom. It was smaller than I'm used...

One of THE classic Art Deco hotels. It looks and feels good. With wooden floors you hope the people above are not to noisy but its the location and the look of the Hotel that grabs you! The beach area is expensive but worth every penny and it is great in the morning to walk along the beach people watching....

Hotel room was small with 2 double beds, and the linens are not 300 thread count nor are the towels thick & fluffy but the room was...

We can´t say anything about the rooms... because we must not stay although we had a valid reservation - booked one day before on their official website!!! We think the hotel was simply overbooked. Furthermore the person on the front desk was very uninterested in our reservation. Much more important was the phone... So if you want a trusty stay...

My friend and I decided last minute that we wanted some sun before Christmas. As we’d been to Florida a few times we knew that it would be the place to go as we didn’t have time to shop around.

We only stayed one night at The Colony Hotel on our way to the Keys the next morning. The hotel room was fine - great location right on Ocean Drive.
