“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

I stayed at The Cadet for two nights. One before my cruise and one after. (Oct. 5th and 12th).
Every staff member I encountered was friendly and professional. The hotel is in a great location. It is nicely decorated with great little extras.
The rooms are a bit small and the selection of TV channels was limited, but who spends much time in your room in Miami??
The day I arrived back from my cruise, they moved my room assignment and after only 15 minutes I was able to check-in early (10am). That was really appreciated!

So I am back at the Cadet Hotel for another week. I was greeted by welcome backs and we have a great room for you.
I just heard that the visiting chef from France is back. Apparently they are about to change up the dinner menu in Pied A Terre!! Not sure you have been to the restaurant but the food and service is spectacular. Not an everyday experience but when you here a week I would at least 2 or 3 days:-)
I booked a reservation with continental breakfast included. I happened to love the intimacy of the Cadet. The staff is so well groomed and clearly love the details in the service. I would suggest the continental breakfast daily then just upgrade on days you are really hungry to an omelette. Headed for breakfast and the delicious coffee!

Cadet hotel was one the best cost benefits we had in 2012 (my wife and I stayed in Cadet Hotel for the Christmas holidays 2012). We booked the most inexpensive accommodation: the room is not big, just the right size for a couple, but it is completely renovated, including the furniture; saying “renovated” is not fair with the property, once everything is not just functional but also sophisticated. The hotel has a very nice pool at the backyard, perfect for refreshing after a day in the beach. Another very good point, its location is in walk distances of the beach (one block), the ocean drive (three blocks) and Spañola way. At last but not the least, the hotel has a very nice staff.

Some services were not included in our rate; take them into consideration when comparing the hotels rates. Our rate did not include the breakfast, but you can have it in the hotel restaurant, paying extra. However, to be honest, we found better breakfast in the restaurants around (“Jerry’s famous Deli” is a good option). The hotel has no parking and you can not park on the streets (only residents can park there), but there are (at least) two options one block away. We paid 15 dollars the night. The hotel does not offer beach service (you can take towels with them), but they have discount with one of the huts in the beach. We paid 25 dollars for the entire day.

The cadet is a beautiful cozy Art Deco hotel located at South Miami Beach just a few minute walk from the Art Deco district, the beach and all the fun and nightclubs Miami beach has to offer.

Although rooms are not very big, they are beautifully decorated and clean. The staff showed being very helpful at all times. Breakfast was delicious.

Since part of my honeymoon was at the Cadet in miami, the hotel manager had a special treat on us. The experience was so nice I always recommend the cadet to my friends going to Miami. I will repeat for sure.

Great hotel with a romantic feeling :)

The Cadet Hotel is quite the charming European style boutique hotel. It is only 33 rooms I believe with various types of rooms. I looked at e cozy room which was well appointed but decided on the Superior with a king bed. I had heard about hotel from a very good friend that was here in February. I like quite, euro style, small boutique hotels.
When I got in it was awfully late at 4am. As you can imagine I was exhausted. The front desk agent was very warm and considerate. Got to my room and it was nice and chilly. The room was so quaint with a shear over the bed and smell of lavender. I am a big scent guy as I meditate. I immediately got into bed and my GOD it was beyond comfortable. I quickly passed out and awoke to the same smell of lavender. I went down to breakfast and had the mushroom, onion and cheese omelette. Delicious!!! What really struck me was the attention to detail in service and set up. They really care about the impact in details.
The hotel close to Lincoln Road, beach and Convention Center. They have a great restaurant called Pied a Terre - French cuisine. However they also change menu seasonally as there is this thing called the visiting chef program. I was unable to eat at restaurant on this trip but will next month as I am coming back:-) Hats off to Ricky, Melody and Camila they were a joy to meet. Lastly the rooms were spotless from a Miami standard. This is NOT a party hotel it is sophisticated and relaxing.

Room Tip: Spend a little more money and book the superior king or junior suite.

This hotel is located just 2 blocks from South Beach. It is close to shopping areas as well as some very good restaurants. Rooms are a little small, but very clean and the hotel is very quiet. The staff is very helpful and courteous. Lovely hot tub area, but beware of the numerous mosquitoes! The main drawback is the lack of parking. There are a few hotels in the area that offer parking but make sure they allow for in/out privileges. There is no elevator in the hotel, and so this may be a problem with those in wheelchairs or small kids in strollers. Overall, a lovely place to stay if you are looking for something clean, quiet, and central to shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back of the hotel are quieter.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for staying with us and taking your time to review us.

We are glad you enjoyed our location. We are close to all the main attractions yet, situated in a quiet street.

Our hotel does not have an elevator because we are a historical building. We are not allowed to make any changes to the building. We do however, provide our guest with assistance with the luggage all the time. We also have a wheelchair lift which is located in the back garden area.

It was a pleasure to have you stay with us, and we hope to see you back soon!

Warm Regards,
