Amazing location in the heart of everything. To start off, the staff in this hotel is awesome! From the time we stepped into the doorway of this hotel we were greeted by Jamel who was knowledgable and helpful and i might add remembered our names the entire weekend. We were then greeted by the manager, Carlos who was cordial and inviting, he made us feel right at home. He welcomed us to the hotel and their complimentary happy hour which is exactly what we needed after a four hour drive. The entire staff was so helpful to us the entire weekend and we enjoyed south beach for the first time. Just something to add: My husband was leaving the room to get some ice and one of the bellman who was passing by offered to get it for us, "NOW THAT IS SERVICE"!!! So if you are looking for a beautiful, clean, updated hotel in south beach, this is the place to stay. We will be back several times a year to enjoy this beautiful area but will only stay at the ESSEX!!

Room Tip: Do not book the courtyard rooms, please leave those for us to enjoy! It felt like a separate part of...

This is a great location one block from South Beach. The sister hotel behind Essex House, The Cleavelander, is a bit crazy and guests at Essex House are able to use The Cleavelander's amenities - this is a nice perk. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. Although the bathrooms are a bit dated and our a/c unit was a bit too loud, the room was clean and quiet. Also, it is an extremely good value for South Beach. Don't forget to stop by the hotel's restaurant - it is an excellent Asian fusion choice with a wonderful staff as well!

Excellent location for vacations if you like South Beach area life and to be close to the beach. Since I've spent 7 days there with my wife the main issue I had was related to the lack of space to storage all our cloths- Not having drawers and a tiny closet - In spite of this problem the hotel clerks made all changes necessary to bring comfort to use moving to a larger suit room. Excellent service at any time, particularly remarkable were Juliana and Camilo.

Hello! I 1st stayed at this hotel a year ago(March 2012) and like the place so much that I decided to take my boyfriend here for his birthday this year April 2013. We arrived on Saturday night. Brad checked us in and was the nicest person. He was friendly, warm and inviting. He asked us about our trip and where we were from. He asked us if we were interested in upgrading to a king suite but because we were only staying for 2 nights we didn't think we needed to do it. He then looked into the computer and told us "To make your stay even more enjoyable and relaxing, I will upgrade you complimentary" It was the nicest gesture and made this birthday getaway amazing. We will definitely be back again soon and will book the suite for sure next time. Good work Brad and excellent representation of what real customer service is. We also enjoyed dinner at the new restaurant after we checked in although more vegetarian/vegan options would be nice. Overall good trip indeed!

Room Tip: The separate Suites are definitely worth it! And fun live music that you can dance to on saturday ni...

Stayed here with a friend in November 2012.

The hotel is in a very good location in Miami beach. We were greeted by Austin and Brad who were fantastic in helping us settle in and also answer any questions we had.

The rooms were very spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel is linked with the Clevelander Hotel which is behind it and is a good option for evening entertainment and drinks etc as it is quite popular and there is a good atmosphere in the evenings.

If I was to visit Miami Beach again I would have no issues about booking this hotel again.

My girlfriends and I were so happy with the Essex House! The hotel was so cute, very clean and the staff was so friendly! We loved the little details such as how they delivered a bottle of wine and chocolate covered oreos to our room one evening, had the free happy hour, and how the cleaning staff lined up all of our shoes in a row. Also, the location is perfect! The hotel is a block away from all of the South Beach action and is within steps from the beach and boardwalk. The Essex has a small quiet relaxing pool (part sun/part shaded) that was nice to relax at if you want some quiet time or you could walk around the corner to the Clevelander (so fun!) I definitely will be going back!

I loved the location and the Zen Sai restaurant. J Jordan was one of the nicest hotel clerks that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He helped us with information about places to go , shop, and eat. The happy hour and complimentary breakfast were great. It was very clean and extremely quiet for the area we were in. I would recommend it highly and will stay there next time we are in the area!
