4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Richard & the rest of the front desk team were personable, responsive and sincere. I needed to check in early before a business meeting, and they made it happen. FYI best parking option is public garage down the street at 13th!

We were on our honeymoon and we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It is one of the best hotels on Ocean Drive and I recommend it to everyone. All the staff were very friendly. I strongly suggest the hotel to put some protein meals at their breakfast buffet instead of all carbs.

Room Tip: Take the ocean view room

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Edgewater, the location was magic being opposite the best beach and the excitement of the Restaurant strip.
Staff were very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed our breakfast and Happy Hour on the 5th floor.
The room was well appointment and extremely clean which made for a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Even though our room was on the Beach and Street we had no problems with noise.

This was our second stay at the Edgewater, and if anything, it was even better this time than the first. Particularly worth mentioning are the cheery reception staff, who were always willing to give advice and directions. Location couldn't be better...2 minutes walk across the road to the beach (with chairs and towels provided by the hotel); 5 minutes walk to Lincoln Road shops and restaurants, with restaurants even closer should you be feeling too tired from the sun; and 2 minutes from the buzz of Ocean Drive - far enough away to be quiet, for a peaceful night's sleep.
The continental breakfast and free happy hour (both included in your resort fee) mean that you save a ton of money on food and drink...and the quality and quantity is good. Saving money might not be a consideration for you, if you are only there a couple of nights, but it was great for us, being in Miami for 10 days.
The room was big, and included a microwave and fridge, which meant we could prepare our own lunches, and keep our water/beer cold. Bed was immensely comfortable.
Shower overflowed as it was all open plan - a bit of a niggle, but nothing to get hot and bothered about.
I would definitely stay again.

Had a one-night stay after returning from a cruise. Booked hotel based upon Trip Advisor reviews.

A great find in a very expensive area-----

Check-in was easy and room was ready upon arrival. Staff was very positive and helpful. Room was spotless.

Free beach chairs and beach towels (which we used) and a very nice "Happy Hour" in the early evening.

Wake-up call received on-time and taxi was wating for our departure.

A very psoitive experience at this hotel!

I Stayed at the Edgewater with my husband in June this year - what a great little hotel nestled away at the quieter side of South Beach. The hotel was a little difficult to find (we drove past it a few times) as it is very understated, but this fits very well with the theme of the hotel. It was very relaxed, all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful with any queries we had and it had a really nice roof terrace. Be aware there is a resort fee to pay, but I think this is good value and we took full advantage of the breakfast, happy hour and beach chairs. One last thing, the reception of the hotel smelled great - strange one I know but they had lovely scented candles - if anyone can let me know the scent that would be great as I would love to get some for my home!!! I hope to have the opportunity to return some day.

Room Tip: Try for an ocean view if possible as these rooms seemed much lighter than the rear/side of the hotel...
