They did not have bathcloths only hand towels which they only gave two of. the telephone was to nasty to use it had stains all over it. the room had a musty smell We... More

I stayed at the Colony from 8-15 - 8-18. Great experience! The hotel is in the middle of everything, and if you want to go for the weekend to party it doesn't get better! I promise you won't have to go further then three blocks from the hotel to find something to do! Plus the beach is right across the... More

We recently stayed in South Beach for the weekend (8/2-8/3). The location was fantastic--right in the heart of South Beach. We were so excited the hotel provided valet parking for fee of $25. Once we attempted to check in-- the party went down hill. The hotel room was not ready until after 6pm. As advertised, it is not toddler/child friendly.... More

I have always loved the Colony and have been recommending this hotel to friends for years. Recently some friends of mine were taking a cruise and planned on spending a couple of days in South Beach after they completed their cruise. Like I always do I gave the Colony a raving review and they took my recommendation without question. So... More

This is an ideal location in south beach as it is on the block of ocean drive that you always see in videos and movies, surrounded by some great restaurants and across the street from the beach. They have some nice modern decor in the rooms. my only problem was the housekeeping. it was nice to have a hotel with... More

The Hotel was horrible, starting by the front desk employees and ending with the hotel conditions itself. The room carpet was not very clean; the bathroom needs some serious remodeling not to mention demolishing. There was a construction going on which started early morning and no one told us about and the noise was horrible; the room flooded from upstairs... More

The Colony Hotel was in a great location, across the street from the beach. The rooms were basic and the staff was nice. Our room was located in the back part of the hotel so noise wasn't a problem. At night, the front of the hotel was over crowded. Too much action for a family but good for a group... More

We stayed at the Colony from the 11th Jun 2008 to the 13th on a tour around southern Florida. The hotel looked fine when we arrived, nice location, handy for the beaches, cafes and shops. However when we tried to check in were told that we didn't have a booking, although we had a printout from the hotel's web-site with... More

Colony Hotel is a good place to stay if you come to Miami looking for convenience and inexpensive place to stay. I stayed at Colony Hotel on July 13 through July 17. My overall stay was mediocre. I arrived at the hotel at 10:30 a.m. and was told that I could not check in until 3:00 or so because they... More

We were due to leave on a cruise from the Port of Miami on a Monday, so we decided to fly down on day early and check out the South Beach area. I found the Colony from an online search and booked directly with the Hotel. We both love Art-Deco design. so this area appealed to us right away. 1,... More
