“A Boutique Hotel at its Finest!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This Boutique Hotel in a single word, is AWESOME! Great location whether you want to go to Ft. Lauderdale or South Beach, and just steps away from the famous Bal Harbour shops if you feel the need to lighten your wallet, which by the way, staying at this hotel won't! Wendy, Courtney, Kevin, and the rest of the staff are very personable and went out of their way to make sure our stay was an enjoyable one. For a boutique hotel, rooms are a nice size and very comfortable. What more can I say...go to the Daddy O and experience for yourself...we surely will be back!!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at DaddyOHotel. With all the right charm, class, and style, this boutique is perfect for one night or multiple nights. The entire staff was very welcoming. The room was super clean and spacious. I will definently be back!

...we would have upped the overall rating had it not been for the following...walls really are not terribly soundproof. At 4 this morning we were awakened to the sounds of a very loud and animated phone conversation being conducted in the adjoining room. Guess it was later in the day for the person at the other end. Wish our neighbor had been more considerate. Also, if your room is on the second floor facing the street, you will have more noise between lobby doors clanging and people conversing on the comfy outside seats. Shower head mounted too high for my 5 ft. frame and not particularly strong stream of water coming from it. OTOH, I can't blame them for my short stature :-). Air conditioning tended to cycle on and off a bit too noisily. Positives...very clean, staff enthusiastic and helpful and it was ideally located for our trip activities. Morning complimentary breakfast buffet was excellent. As almost everywhere in Miami, you need a vehicle to get around.

Thank you for posting a review of the Daddy O Hotel on tripadvisor. The Daddy O is one of those hidden gems perfectly located for guests to enjoy all the best of South Florida. All of our staff members are very pleased that you’ve noticed their efforts to make your stay an enjoyable one- be it by making your room as clean as can be, offering refills on the daily complimentary breakfast, or attending to your requests. Our aim is always to please you. That being said, we do apologize for the inconveniences you experienced while here. The noise from the other guests is something that we try to minimize, but obviously is not something we can totally control. As for the shower and the A/C, we can gladly tend to those issues for you on the next stay with minimal adjustments. We do hope that you will give the Daddy O Hotel another chance on your next visit to Miami.

Best regards,
Daddy O Hotel Team

I had the most wonderful time at this hotel. All of the staff was nice. Customer service was excellent.. The parking was free, and even valet. Well the first day we used valet, the rest of the days we did not. We visited ft, lauderdale , went to the Seminole casino, and that was nice. The next day we visited the shops of bal harbor, saw plenty of high fashion clothes and boutiques. I really could appreciate this area it wasn't packed as south beach. I had the best birthday ever in Florida and surely want to do it again next year, and get this it didn't rain not one day we were there.

In town for business and lucked into this sweet little hotel. Clean and contemporary. Breakfast is an array of nice carbohydrates accompanied by a magic coffee machine. Staff friendly and helpful. Parking really convenient and only 8 dollars.

We spent two very pleasant nights at this newly-relaunched boutique hotel during a visit to Sunny Isles Beach and Haulover Beach.

What a delightful property! The rooms are stylish, modern and clean. A beautiful stand-up shower, toilet and vanity highlight the bathroom, and crisp, modern furnishings with excellent linens and decor complete the room.

Nice fast and free Wi-Fi throughout the property is a plus, as is the free international and local phone calls from your room. A big wall-mounted flat-screen TV comes with actual HD programming on many channels. Free in-room Keurig coffee as well as a free continental breakfast add value to your stay. Beer and wine are available for purchase from the front desk which adjoins the lobby lounge, with service as late as 2am.

This small hotel is a welcome and delightful addition to lodging choices in the area, and you'll appreciate what a great value it is for this location.

The staff and especially manager Courtney were friendly, attentive and went the extra mile to make us glad we chose the Daddy O for our visit to South Beach / Sunny Isles Beach / Haulover Beach and we will make it a date to return for our next visit.

Room Tip: Water pressure above the ground floor may be an issue -- our Room 220A had marginal water pressure...

This place was fantastic. I came here with my fiancee, her sister, and brother-in-law. We stayed in two adjoining king rooms on the second floor. The price was great. It ended up being under $500 including all taxes, fees and parking for two rooms, for two nights.

The hotel is clean, comfortable, and modern. The staff is really friendly and accommodating. Continental breakfast is included and you can get coffee, tea and water 24 hours a day next to the lobby. Jeffrey was especially helpful. He had a bunch of good advice and recommendations for us.

The location is great. Just off of A1A which will get you anywhere along the coast (albeit slowly in Florida). It's nice to be in a quieter area. Bal Harbour is very upscale. I think the housekeepers drive BMWs there. There's a lot within walking distance. The beach is about a 10-15 minute walk straight down 96th Street.

This is how a hotel should be run. I will definitely stay here if I'm ever back in Miami. 5 stars across the board!
