“Odeon Architecture in the McAlpin Ocean Drive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Looks good from outside but is a bit tired inside. Spa facilities are a laugh and the gym is large enough for maybe 3 people at once. Some of the in-room equipment was not working and we had a serious leak in our roof on the second day of our stay resulting in us having to accept a lower floor room which was a disappointment. About 4 out of 10

Thank you for your comments about your stay. We are sorry for any inconvenience you have experienced, and hope you give us another chance. As you know, we are a historic property that was built in the 40’s. While we take pride in maintaining the property in top shape, we are limited in space and unexpected repairs do occur. We are happy to let you know that we are currently undergoing renovation, that is expected to be completed by November. The renovation includes the guest rooms and lobbys. We hope to see you again in the near future.

Stayed on South Beach at the Hilton Grand Vacations Club resort on Ocean Drive in the heart of the Art Deco District. True to its history on the outside, the interior has an updated look and feeling. The rooms are amazing. They provide an upscale Hilton experience in a modern suite that does not deny the hotel's ancestry. I plan to stay here many more times.

Perfect location. Everything was clean. We had adjoining rooms on the first floor and it made for a great time. There was construction outside the first floor window but that did not appear permanent or in the hotel's control. It was a wonderful location for running the boardwalk, going to the beach, going out, and sightseeing.

Visiting Southbeach during the Labor Day weekend is an experience. Anyone over the age of 30 need not apply, but the sights were fantastic. The hotel is right there for the action but not directly in the line of fire. DO NOT STAY AT ANY HOTEL BETWEEN 5th and 12th Street or you will never sleep. But the Hilton is far enough away(14th street) that it will not disturb you. Great hotel and staff.

If you like Art Deco then this is a good place to stay ---right In the midst of Miami Beach's Art Deco District.
The place is clean and the staff's very friendly and quite helpful to every query we had. It's also on the quiet-er north end of the nonstop South Beach party that is Ocean Drive, 2 blocks from Versache's former mansion. So you are close enough to the 24hr. boisterous beach crowds and the clubs yet can still get undisturbed sleep anytime you want.
The rooms are true to Art Deco style, not huge, but very comfy. Big beds Very clean.
If you are looking for fancier stuff, and wants pampering, go somewhere else but be ready to pay more $$$. Don't look for a pool either, there's none but the beach is just yards away from across the main lobby
Other than that, this is a great place to stay where you get a great view of Ocean Drive, the beach and sunrise at the rooftop where the jacuzzi and gym are located as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the top floor for easier access to the jacuzzi and gym.

Great art deco buildings right across from the beach. It is surrounded by clubs and restaurants. Nicely updated but could use more sound proofing. The two bedroom unit is nice for two couples, but too small for more. Very friendly staff.
