“Great Stay!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

Nice rooms, the reviews said rooms were small but I found my room to be comfortable. EXCELLENT EXCELLENT SERVICE. .. great location. Parking is not the best but no where in south beach is... I love this place, I will definitely stay again and I suggest you do too!

Room Tip: Try not to get a first floor room. Bring a small cooler mini bar is expensive.

Loved rooftop pool. Dj at night on the weekend & music played during day, Cool vibe. The restaurant Naked Taco was great. Good mexican food. The hotel is 1 block from beach. Great location. However rooms are dim. Lighting is a bit complex & cannot get really bright. So getting myself together to be on my Miami best was not an easy task. No full length mirror. I won't stay here again because of this.

Dear Guest,

It is very nice to hear that you were able to enjoy our awesome rooftop and enjoy some great food at Naked Taco! I am sorry that you had some difficulty with the lighting design and lack of a full-length mirror when you were getting ready. For your next stay, and for the benefit of future guests reading this, the hotel does offer full-length mirrors upon request and our friendly staff can deliver to your room.

We hope that you will come back and visit us again for your next trip to South Beach, so until then, safe travels!

Pro's: This hotel was very nice and quite fancy. The room was impressive with dimmed lighting and a modern look. It was very romantic yet fun and very 'Miami'. Service was great, they really went the extra step to make sure you had a good time. very clos to the beach and the resto at the hotel 'Naked Taco' was delish! Very nice waiters too. Rooftop terasse was very cool. Free WiFi.

Con's: The valet parking was reallly expensive so we parked two blocks down at the municipal parking building (1$/hour) as opposed to 37$ for the day. Although the room was very nice, it was VERY small. You could only be 1 person at a time in the bathroom and we had to jump over our luggage to get around the room. Full awesome bar in room that is nice to ....look... at ;)

All this being said, I'm not totally sure I would go back to this hotel since there are many hotels around there that are probably just as cool and might have a little more space. However it was a good experience and I would recomend it.

Love the decor and lighting. The room is also very spacious and has a huge shower with see through glass doors ( super cool). We had a really nice weekend and I slept like a Queen!!
The hotel also has a delicious restaurant called Naked Taco. The margaritas are delicious and the Taco's were voted best Taco's in Miami. Perfect atmosphere, you can sit inside or out in the terrace and their Service is fast and attentive.

My husband and I stayed two nights at Dream. It was beautifully decorated with very cool lighting in the room that was trendy and impressive. It was a little difficult to understand all of different lighting configurations without referencing the instruction card but it was pretty easy to figure it out just by pressing the multiple buttons.
There was very little space for our luggage. Granted, we had a lot of luggage since we were on a road trip from California to Florida. There would have been plenty of room if we had half of the luggage.
I didn't get much sleep with all of the parties going on. I could hear somebody in the room above us at about 4:00am walking around in high heels on the hardwood floors. It's not a hotel for sleep. It's more of a party hotel.
The rooftop pool was a lot smaller than I anticipated but we were only there at night, which was perfect. There was a woman passed out on one of the chaise lounges, which was more humorous than sad. There were still several people in the pool having a good time when we got there. It was pretty much what I expected.
The room was very close to the beach and the hotel had a spot on the beach that hotel guests can use. They set up your beach chairs for you. We gave a tip although the man helping us didn't make us feel any pressure to give him one (which surprised me). He was great and seemed genuinely interested in making conversation with us.
I had heard other people talk about concerns for safety in South Beach but I felt completely safe! While my husband slept in the first morning, I went for a jog on the beach. I didn't have any safety concerns at all.
The hotel's restaurant was amazing! The waiter was very engaging but a little assertive and did the "assumptive close" on the drinks. He asked if we would be drinking and we said "yes"( I mean, we're in Miami for goodness sakes)! So after we ordered our drinks, he mixed a shot and brought it to us and asked if we wanted to try it. We agreed and paid for it big time on the bill! We had budgeted for that sort of thing but for those of you who are budget conscious or don't like things being pushed on you, watch out for those questions and don't be afraid to say "no." We were very happy with all of the food we ordered there.
Miami is EXPENSIVE. I am glad I went but I don't think I'll be back unless I'm on a business trip and my company pays the bills!
Overall, if you're looking for a good Miami party experience, this is an ideal hotel.

Recently stayed at Dream. Had a wonderful stay , room was very spacious, bed was incredible, bathroom was oversized and very modern.
The front desk staff were awesome and each and every question or request was met with a quick and almost always positive response.
Nicely placed in the middle of Collins Ave, not to far from the favorite spots and shopping .

Room Tip: Corner suites are the best.
