“Enjoyed it”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We stayed at the Savoy for 2 night following a trip into the Keys. We booked this hotel because it was more on the south end of south Beach and sounded a bit quieter than the places a little north of this. I think we were right. The beach in front of the hotel (and you don't have to walk across Ocean Drive to get to it) was much less crowded than further up the coast. After walking up the beach a bit (i.e. north), it is a literal zoo up there with people. We love beaches, and it was definitely nicer not to be shoulder-to-shoulder with 'people'.
The hotel was nice and seemed to have a lot of security, having to use your room card to open gates from the street and from the beach to get back onto the grounds. There is valet parking at the hotel, although we just returned our rental car when we checked in at the hotel to avoid all the valet charges (I think it was $30 a night). We really didn't feel keeping a car in South Beach would be useful at all, and we were glad we made this choice after being there a couple of days.
We ate one breakfast at the hotel, which was fairly priced, about $35.
There is a happy hour at the hotel, which was a bit odd; it only includes mixed drinks like rum/coke and beer, no cocktails at all; anyway, we ordered 2 rum and coke and it was $14.50USD for the 2, during happy hour. Assumed this mean they are that each outside of happy hour. That is a bit steep for bar-rum in the USA. However....
The hotel does supply beach chairs and umbrellas and has a supply of beach towels by the pool to take to the beach. The hotel staff member at the beach walks around with a clipboard patrolling the chairs to make sure no one from outside the hotel gets one. I guess that made sense although day 1 when we were there he asked us 3x what our name and room number was. He was very attentive.
There is a waitress from the hotel serving at the beach- so she'll bring drinks and food out there. It was handy, but like I mentioned, not inexpensive.
We had a Suite, it was a nice room, had a little kitchenette and mini fridge which was handy, plus a separate living area and bed. The king bed was comfy and the t.v. in the bedroom was a massive flat screen.
We liked the hotel location- at dinner we just walked up Ocean Drive to the many restaurants (whose staff harass you to enter) along the street, which didn't have to be a far walk if one didn't want.
Overall we enjoyed our experience at the Savoy.

Stayed at the savoy hotel in August with Family.
it is what it is a 3 star hotel with a good location.
We all enjoyed our stay there, until
the day of check out.
There was a $42 charge to my room which was not ours.
The Staff give me a refund which was fine.
3 weeks later I noticed a charge on my credit card for the $42
which I have objected to
I'm really disappointed with this hotel
we agreed at the time it was not mine.
I would like a response for management regarding this

Yes there are the nice big hotels on the beach that provide various amenities but if you are looking for a hotel with the best staff around and very comfortable accommodations(recently remodeled) look no further than the Savoy. We have been coming to this hotel for several years and have never been disappointed. If your looking for a place where "everyone knows your name" and you really want to have a relaxing time this is the place. Right on the beach so you have that available or the 2 great pools. In the past we have stayed at other hotels on Ocean Drive but this is a great gem. Several members of my family have also stayed and enjoyed as well. Restaurant on premises offers breakfast/lunch.Its close to other great places to eat that Miami Beach has to offer. Already looking at my calendar for my next stay

Location,location, location is why I keep coming back. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The beds are usually too hard. But, you get used to it. The exterior walls of the 2 buildings need to be cleaned and/or painted.
Although I don't spend much time in the room, the cable TV selection should be more robust.
The one bug-a-boo I have is with the electronic keys used to open your room door. I have experienced a high rate of failure.
Compare the Savoy with the other hotels located on the beach and you'll find that you will get more bang for the buck at the Savoy.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, choose a pool-facing room.

This may technically be a 3* hotel but it definitely feels like more. Great location as close to all the action but not loud or obnoxious. Also, it is actually beach front (no road to cross like many others) with beach chairs and umbrellas included. There are servers who will take your food/drink orders from beach or pool and deliver it to you, plus there is constantly iced water available. We also loved, loved, loved the ice towels too which were delivered every afternoon!!

The staff are amazing here...from Rocky the pool guy (giving great recommendations), to Immer on reception (who knows all there is about Miami nightlife), to Gary the manager (whose afternoon chats where always a pleasure), Alexis on night security who welcomed us back (no matter what state!!) and the guy in the bar who always provided great service with a smile.

Our room was lovely and the little kitchen a big plus. We had an amazing holiday, in a great hotel.

We stayed at the Savoy September 21-23, 2013. It was wonderful. The staff was very friendly. The front desk clerk Immer was helpful and made us feel welcome with great customer services. My family and I will stay there again and the rooms are spacious. Enjoyed the pool and great access to the beach.

Great Location we arrived at around 12 noon at that time room was not ready but they made us comfortable with welcome drink & then we went on to explore nearby around. The location is great as its right on the beach & south beach Miami is a happening place all around. Just beside the pool of the hotel is the back door to go on beach & enjoy urself. The menu is just simple nothing much to find on it & also we didnt find restaurant great onto it. The room was great just like the studio apartment with all amenities into it. The lift is also old & many noises coming from it.
