First, I will say the desk staff was really terrific to us when we checked in. The lady could see my wife was pregnant and said she would be happy to upgrade us to the suite (at the front, overlooking the ocean) at no additional charge. That's a $450/night room and we got it for $150/night. So our first impressions...

Our vacation in Miami Beach was nice, but the lack of Hospitality at this Hotel from the Staff was the worst I've ever experienced. They were lazy and very unfriendly.

I was just down in Miami for the Orange Bowl and I had the worst experience with the Colony. They have the worst customer service possible in South Beach. When we arrived it took 10 min to get someone to help us check into the hotel even though we were the only ones at the front desk and they only...

The Colony hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of the Ocean Drive strip. The volleyball courts, the beach, the restaurant strip are all steps away... right in front of the hotel! The club district is on Washington Ave., just a couple of blocks north. The hotel itself is an older building so it has the charm of the classic...

The hotel is in a perfect location. It's directly across the street from the beach. Shopping, dining, and nightlife is all walking distance. Be sure to visit Lincoln Rd. Mall. Nice shops, and dining. I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and everything went well. The hotel gives beach towels too. The bathroom is a bit small, and it...

My boyfriend and I were on a two week trip. We decided to stay in Miami after a week in Mexico to wait for the embarkation of our cruise the following Monday. When I showed up the women at the front desk acted as if it would've killed them to say hello, crack a smile, or even say how may...

Me and my wife stayed at Colony in June 2007. The location is right in the middle of Ocean Drive and this is definitely the best thing about this hotel. The rooms are quite small with sort of a futon bed. The bed was very good and the room also had a huge 50" plasma-TV and a DVD-player and cable....

Stayed here last May and had a great time. Very noisy but that was to be expected due to the excellent location. Lift was ‘out of order’ and the only other disappointment was that we were not able to use the safe in the room (no key). This meant we had to take our valuables out with us and this...

Stayed here Aug 20 - 23 (mon through friday) - 2 rooms 5 people. Rooms with double beds were more spacious and had a tub instead of a standup shower. Elevator was not working.
