My wife and I stayed at the Tides for 4 nights in late October including a weekend. We really enjoyed the stay and the room was exactly like the rooms on the Tides website. The room was very large, much larger than the average south beach hotel room, with a fantasic view of the park and beach opposite...and quiet.
What made the experience memorable was the friendliness of the staff. They always recognised us when we were coming and going and offered some good advice on tours etc. I would especially like to recognise Nory and Jozelle on the front desk and valets Alain and Carlos for their help and advice....and friendliness during our stay.
We always enjoyed walking out of the hotel, straight into the south beach action. Walking out through the restaurant always reminded us of the south of france.
While researching hotels in south beach I had read other reviews about loud music from the street and nightclub next door, it was not a problem. While this may have been due to our room being on the 9th floor, the music..and entertainment from the club next door was fun and the entertainment (think priscilla queen of the desert) with the entertainers going out in the street and stopping traffic was hilarious. The music stopped at around 10:30 on the weekend and earlier during the week and was not an issue at all. If you are going to bed earlier than 10:30 then maybe south beach isn't the venue for you.
We fell into a routine of going to the beach early, where they set up lounge chairs, towels and umbrellas for you, followed by a late breakfast ....and late night. One bonus was that it was very close to clubs so we could easily walk home each night.
We are still thinking about our trip and wish we were back at this wonderful hotel. If you want to stay at an art deco hotel that is quiet, well decorated and friendly that is in the thick of things in south beach then I would strongly recommend the Tides. I did a lot of research as Miami is a long way from Sydney and we are glad we chose the Tides.
