“Excellent - will come back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We stayed at Edgewater for 3 nights in March 2013 - it was a great vacation! The hotel has a great location on Ocean Drive - close to everything without being affected by the noise late at night.

The staff was very friendly, professional and helpful during our entire stay. Our room, on the 5th floor, was very large, spacious and tastefully decorated. The hotel has the best cleaning service I've seen in a long while - all surfaces and floors (in and outside the rooms) were spotless at all times. The breakfast offering has plenty of options and was included in our rate. There were beach towels and chairs available for pick-up during the day.

I will definitely look to stay here again when I come to South Beach. Thank you Santiago, Jonathan and the rest of the team!

We ordered a king bed and received a small queen. We ultimately ended up with another room with noise that lasted till 2am. Then the morning staff arrived at 7am and we could hear them like they were right on top of us. Non working wifi for iPads. Gave up on maid service for the day when it didn't come till 3pm. Furniture so uncomfortable. The list goes on and on.

Esteemed guest,

Our apologies for not providing what you had expected, we usually have the opposite feedback about our rooms, amenities and service. As we are a limited service hotel, our housekeeping service is provided in between 8AM and 4:30PM unless a specific time during this time frame is requested by our guests. The WiFi is being upgraded as we speak and work will be completed by mid-April so the issue you have experienced will be addressed.
After the discussion we've had I hope that you will consider staying with us in the future.

Stayed at this oceanfront hotel for 5 days. The room was very nice. Clean and comfortable. While you pay extra money for the breakfast and happy hour they were enjoyable. The location is great -in the heart of the Deco section of South Beach. I do think that $30. daily parking on top of the $20. daily spoil me plan is expense

Room Tip: Do not get a room without windows. They are very dark and dreary my room had a balcony which was p...

The Edgewater team thanks you for sharing your experience with us, Leida. The parking situation in South Beach is very difficult due to limited space, our valet charge is actually the norm for this area but there are other self-parking options such as the street and municipal parking lots and garages. The valet option is always more convenient for guests as the car is picked up and delivered to the hotel which involves a third party hence the higher cost.
In regards to your room tip, all of our rooms and suites have windows but some get less light depending on location.
Thanks again for staying with us, we look forward to your next stay.

Friendly and helpful reception staff! Very straight forward check in; we were very pleased to find everything so easy and hassel free. We stayed in a room on the 5th floor; the terrace was very spatious and has an amazing L shape sofa that is very comfortable and big enough for two people to laid down. The staff was very attentive. Andree in particular. Thanks very much to everyone at the edgewater for making our stay memmorable! Will come back!

We stayed there for 5 days, before and after our Caribbean cruise. Unlike other reviews, I think the breakfast is really nice: yogurt, breads, fruits, milk, juice, butter, cream cheese and even nutella!
The bedroom is huge and the furniture is brand new. The location is perfect: the beach is right in front of it, and it is a few blocks to Lincoln Road and also close to Collins' stores. I loved it and would return.

One night stay at the Edgewater on Ocean Drive in the middle of the SoBe action. We chose this hotel for the price and location with access to the beach across the street and walking distance to all the restaurants and shopping. The staff especailly nice including the folks serving the complimentary breakfast and happy hour. The only downside was the the smoke alarm kept going off between 3 and 6 am. I had to get maintenance to come and change the battery. Our suite had a very nice living area with a small kitchen. There is a limited view of the beach and ocean from the rooftop lounge where they serve the continental breakfast and happy hour. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Our Third floor room was quiet. There are rooftop suites but likely cost more

Had a confirmed reservation for a room with ocean view and king size bed, paid the first night and upon arrival the room was not available, construction going on, restaurant closed for renovation - didn't even check in and moved over to the lovely Penguin!

Please accept our sincere apologies for not having had the room you expected upon your arrival. It's a very rare happening, we do not oversell our rooms as a rule. The work you noticed was actually a minor plumbing situation which we needed to address. The restaurant is a separate entity from the hotel, even though within the same building.
We hope you will give us another try, we would like the chance to make it up to you.
