Reviewed April 15, 2014

This was, by far, my most favorable hotel experience. A group of us stayed at Essex House for a bachelorette party weekend. The location is prime, right in the heart of the action. The staff members were all very courteous, helpful, and they went out of the way to make sure everyone on our trip had an enjoyable stay at the hotel. I have to fully agree with the review title that states this hotel offers "phenomenal service". This aspect of our stay made the visit not just pleasant , but part of an awesome experience. Every staff member we encountered was over the top helpful, friendly, and accommodating.The rooms were extremely clean, comfortable, and large, especially for a South Beach hotel room. Right next door is the Clevelander Hotel (great spot to dine, go out, enjoy the nightlife, etc), and there are various other great restaurants, bars, and stores nearby. I will definitely stay at this hotel again and will recommend it to others looking to visit Miami Beach.

We were at the hotel for one night after finishing up a Disney cruise with our four year old. At first I was a little worried that it might be a little too chaotic in South Beach for us as we had our son with us. Damian at the front desk was gracious enough to consider our circumstances and was extremely helpful in accommodating us. The location is central to everything with the beach and an amazing selection of restaurants within a stone throw away. Ian the manager for both Essex House and the Clevelander was extremely gracious and helpful, going above and beyond what a guest would expect for service. We didn't bring a stroller with us and wanted to visit the Lincoln Street Mall but preferred to walk rather than cab it. When we mentioned this, he disappeared across the street looking to see if the nearby bicycle rental shop also rented strollers. After learning that they didn't rent them, he didn't stop there. He connected us with a free cart service, which is literally a large golf cart, that took us to our destination. Of course a tip was due to the driver who was like our own personal tour guide. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Thanks guys!

Only have it a 4 as the rooms could be nicer. They have everything you need and as a suite it is a good size. You get what you pay for though Staff are brilliant especially the bartender Kevin. Some unique cocktails and the Japanese tapas is a must try. Really pleased with our stay especially with the location

Be prepared to step back in time...to the rise of Miami Beach, circa 1930's. The charm of the hotel, which we enjoyed for 4 days, was only matched by the genuine care and concern that the staff took with us. From the arriving on a busy Sunday night and the valet service, to a friendly chat with the General Manager of all the properties (don't miss the sister property, the Clevelander!), we were COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY! This is Miami Beach, and there is a lot of competition for guests. Well, in our humble opinion, they won us. We literally booked our next trip down to Miami with them the day after we left.

Thank you Essex House!

Room Tip: We were on the Third Floor, so street noise was not a problem. I recommend it!

My daugher and I stayed there to run a half marathon. The location was great, only one block from the beach, shopping and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and provided us with beach towels and water. If you have a car they will also provide you with info on how to get a discounted rate in the parking garage next store. Park your car and then go to the front desk for more info, we saved almost 50% a day. The hotel lobby was a contrast from the crazy, loud order scene, it was calm and cool and clean. Our room was also very spacious, clean and comfortable. I would have given it the highest rating except that our room was very noisy. We could clearly hear the conversations in both rooms on either side of us and they were not yelling. Thank goodness they went to bed early too to run the race! We were on the first floor in the courtyard, not sure if other rooms were quieter but the walls were paper thin where we were.
