“#1 Hotel On SOBE”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I just got home from stayed at the Edgewater for a second time in 6 months and I would say that this is the best hotel on south beach. The rooms are extremely clean, the customer service of the employees is amazing and the you steps away from the beach!! This is my go to hotel whenever I want to take a get away from New York the rooms are spacious and centrally air-conditioned. A special thanks to Jonathan and Rafael they are amazing people who work extremely hard and do everything with a smile on their faces. This is the only hotel that I would recommend and if you have any doubts then just compare reviews. :) Thank You Edgewater Team!

I loved the location of this hotel! I booked on-line, and when I arrived, my room was not available. They put me in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, full kitchen great suite!!! (I gave the value a Very Good, b/c if I had gotten the room I booked, it is a little pricey, but - it is South Beach!) I didn't care for the Roman shades in the unit, and the unit is a little dark by day, but who goes to South Beach and stays indoors anyway?!?!!! The staff was amazing, even bringing ice up to my room instead of me going downstairs to get it!

Walking distance to plenty of restaurants, night clubs, and the beach is right out front. People were out everywhere jogging, walking their dogs, riding bikes, enjoying the outdoors. Also close to shopping, but my time was too limited to go shopping.

There was a cocktail hour on the roof top area, where you can also sunbathe, but there is not a pool. They also offered a continental breakfast in the same area.

There was a nightly fee of like $18, which covers wi-fi, breakfast, and other stuff. I did use the wi-fi, but there was nothing on the breakfast that I could eat (Atkins way of life).

They are a Stash Rewards hotel. If you like Botique hotels, I suggest this one.

We had a great stay this spring and am looking forward to staying in this hotel again this upcoming October. I come to Miami 3 x a year for the JIS trade show. I am SOOO glad that we found our new place to stay. I have no reason to stay anywhere else now! South Beach is very much like New York city when it comes to hotels. It's a crap-shoot. You never know what you are going to get. Many hotels lie, have deceiving images and statement on their web sites. You only find out that you were duped when you check in. It goes without saying that the location is simply unbeatable. The staff is great, polite and very accommodating. My hat goes off to the GM who is very personable and truly cares about his guests. Free breakfast and Happy Hour on the roof-top with view of Atlantic Ocean ? Who doesn't like that ?? As I said - I come here 3 x a year for business and 1-2x for pleasure. THIS is my new hotel of choice.

(MK from Tampa Bay).

Room Tip: We had a mini suite with a kitchenette. Very happy with the room!

i would like to give a big thanks to all Edgewater staff they were so nice to me and my partner, we had so much fun!.. special thanks to Edward, Jonathan and Rafael!

the rooms were big and extremely comfortable. the housekeeping was superb, couple of times we come back to the hotel late and the front door is closed, so security is not bad as well. we had to takeout our keys. i also once lost my keys when i went down the beach, and when i reported it. they canceled the old one and gave me a new one..

the beach is so close from the hotel, and its amazing!.. the hotel gives you a portable chair that has a bottle holder and zippers here and there and you can carry it as a backpack :p.. pretty awesome.

i wasnt a big fan of the breakfast (no eggs @_@) i know... and the pigeons on the rooftop -_-.. i hate pigeons... BUT the coffee was good haha thats what matters i guess..

i was happy, my partner was happy and now its a happy memory. i will definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for one night and found it an excellent location for all we wanted.
Hotel staff were excellent and very helpful take advantage of drinks on the roof between 6-7pm
The hotel is close to shopping at Collin's Ave and Lincoln, also close to any number of restaurants with direct access to South Beach itself.
Room was grand but we ended up right next to the reception (but that was just the luck of the draw!!)
There is a sun balcony on the roof but there is no pool at this hotel which suited us as we spent the day on the Beach.
Use their Valet Parking it was very helpful and well worth the money for 1 night
Only thing that annoyed us during our stay in Miami (which is no fault of hotel) was rhe practice of the bars and restaurants not to show prices and to try and sell you "specials" which cost the earth??? Don't forget to ask for prices before you order anything and look out for the 2 for 1 offers.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us, Steve. Sorry that you didn't enjoy the location of your studio, hope we can do better next time. It is unfortunate that some of the local establishments delve in some not so fair practices and this affects all of us.
We hope to see you again!

I’ve been to South Beach a few times over the years, always staying at a hotel on the strip, this hotel is ‘essentially’ the best I’ve stayed in! The rooms very clean, quiet, and roomy. If you’ve stayed on South Beach, you know the rooms are usually small, (due to the era the hotels were made). It’s an older hotel on the North end that has been remodeled elegantly. The staff are very friendly and willing to assist you if needed. I would have given this place an excellent but, they charged me for three weeks when I only stayed for three nights, (imagine the shock when I got my credit card bill). Error and all, I’ll be staying here again!

Room Tip: Ocean facing rooms are only a partial view but, very picturesque

We love traveling to Miami. Staying at this hotel makes the trip even more enjoyable. It's located directly across from the beach with many restaurants nearby to choose from. Our room was spacious and even had a small kitchen area. The housekeeper was super friendly and replenished our towels and toiletries daily. Actually the entire staff was very hospitable and went above and beyond to accommodate us. We will definitely be back.
