I was Dissappointed at the restaurant. You can stay in the hotel but do not eat in the restaurant. Do not fall for their 50%off specials because it is simply false. They upsell you things and end up serving you a $100 check.

We stayed here for a last minute trip for my birthday. We were only there for a couple days. The hotel is very old. They've tried to give it a 'modern' look though....but it's still very old and could use a total renovation. The room was clean though so I can't really complain. The main thing going for this hotel... More

I was fooled by the "postcard famous" hotel with its blue neon front. Sure, It is located right next to the beach and Ocean Drive where all the restaurants are located. However, this means that every time you leave the hotel people from the restaurants try pulling you in to eat at their place. I felt like I was in... More

I am just returning from a 4 day trip in South Beach. I travelled with my boyfriend and two other couples, we each had our own room at the Colony Hotel. If you are looking for a luxury hotel, this is not the place to stay. Reality is, none of the hotels on the "main strip" of South Beach (Sobe)... More

We've chosen this hotel for the first night of our trip. We were a bit uncertain because a lot of reviews are good, but a lot are negative...Anyway, as the Colony has a tradition and one of the most photographed sign in the world, we opted for a room here. Positive aspects: - the position is really great! In the... More

We went down for a bachelor party. I was on this site, and had read some review prior to booking the room!! Once we arrive I was happy to see that we were able to check in with no problems, and that the room was very clean. Although it was small, we didnt have any problems, and the staff was... More

Not a great place to stay. Front Desk staff not so pleasent. No key for the safe in our room. Bar is not conected to hotel so don't plan on a cold drink while in your swim suit (better have your wallet with you) Room is okay but quite small.. Just not a great place to stay.

Room was nicer than i expected, although it looked like only the bedroom had been remodeled and the bathroom kept old, also there were lightswitches on the wall that didnt work and a ceiling fan that wouldnt turn on. Nice big flatscreen tv on... More
