I was down in South Beach for a conference and found the best rate at the Dream. They try really hard with the design of the rooms at the cost of functionality. That being said the pool scene is really fun. Almost makes you not want to go to the beach, which by the way is very close to the hotel. The hotel is situated a little further south then you want to be but it is great to be in south beach. I recommend this hotel if you are looking for good value in South Beach.

This was my second time staying at this hotel and it was actually better than the first time (which was great) mainly because of their new delicious and extremely affordable restaurant, Naked Taco. Think great selection of $5 tacos (must try short rib taco) that is also served pool side during the day. The rooms are still beautiful and fun to be in because of their cool lighting systems. This visit I opted for a junior suite (room 360), which is larger than the standard room (it has a couch), but was underwhelming for a suite, it was more like a standard size hotel room anywhere else. I was very happy with the room but when I go back I'll probably just get the standard room as I spent very little time in the room. The roof top pool is really a fun way to spend the day and if you are lucky you'll have Windy as your server, she is so friendly and made an already great day even better and more fun. Everyone that I encountered who works there is really friendly, helpful and really seem to care about you having a great experience. The location is great, located directly behind the Versace Mansion, right in the thick of things. Dream offers guests free internet, chairs and towels at the beach, amazing Etro bath products and nightly turndown service with free bottled water and chocolates. It's a perfect choice for a South Beach vacation!

My wife and I spent our anniversary here and every aspect of it was great. Location is awesome, a block off the beach and directly behind the Versace mansion. Awesome pool bar and rooftop pool. Rooms were chic with great mood lighting. Hotel is all art deco which was also cool. Just had a great stay and great anniversary. Oh and be sure to check out the Naked Taco. Awesome food.

Great staff, was able to check in early and the room was clean and comfortable with all standard amenities. Location is excellent and just a block from Ocean St and the beach. My only complaint and the reason for the 3 star rating is the noise. If your looking for a quiet night of sleep, don't expect to get it at this hotel ( or at ask for a quiet room).

Dear Guest,

It is great to hear that you enjoyed your room and our rooftop pool. It is not so great that you experienced some issues with valet parking, and we offer our apologies for that! It is important that using the valet services is a quick and efficient process, and it is very frustrating when this is not the case. All of us here at Dream hope that you will one day consider staying with us again, so until then, safe travels and take care!

I stayed here with a girlfriend and it was one of our best trips! Staff is great and helpful especially the concierge (Benjamin). He was amazing and he helped us plan out each day including partying at some of trendiest lounges/clubs in south beach. We will definitely go back!

The Dream is great for couples in South Beach. The lighting system in the rooms are difficult to figure out first and a bit annoying, but it does look cool when you figure them out!

Pros:
Great taco restaurant called the Naked Taco, which opened about 2 months ago. The tacos are pricey at $5 per taco, but they are rather big and tasty.

Pool is great, pretty small but the roof deck is spread out so it never felt super crowded. They have beds and chairs, get there early because they do fill up pretty quick.

Cons:

Housekeeping isn't that great. One night we got home from dinner and a bag of ice was left on the edge of the dresser. It melted and fell over and leaked everywhere, the last thing i wanted to do was clean up water at midnight. Also glasses were left from the first day we were there until we left(4 days)

Our room was facing collins, it was super loud, especially at night. Ask for a room on the side or rear of the hotel.

Room Tip: do not face collins!
