We stayed here at the Pelican for one night prior to sailing from the Miami Port. The taxi cost was a flat rate from the airport. It was in a convenient location to South Beach activities and the port as well. We loved the location and the helpful staff that came running out to our cab on a busy traffic day on Ocean Drive to assist us with our luggage. The check in process was friendly and professional. We felt like we were treasured guests even though it was our first experience with this hotel. The room was very small and we had lots of luggage due to our cruise the following day. It was difficult maneuvering around the bags. Also, NO view...we like a view. We couldn't have done this for a long time, but for a short stay it was absolutely fine. We loved the breakfast on the sidewalk with great foot traffic to watch. The staff was friendly and efficient. Order the goat cheese and olive tepanade omelette or the caprese omelette. Both were outstanding. The beach was great...towels and beach chairs were included. We also loved the happy hour from 4 to 6......hotel guests were FREE. Who does that? Appetizers (at our expense) and mango mojitos were just the thing. The bed and bathroom were clean and we were surprised to find CO Bigelow toiletries. A very nice touch. It was a quick ride to the port the next morning after catching a cab right in front of the hotel. We would definitely stay here again for a short trip. We felt like we belonged while we were here.
