“Classy and Convenient”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Step back into a piece of American History as this updated and amazing property located in the Art Deco section of South Beach is truly CLASSY. We had the 1 Bedroom Unit with a sleeper sofa. The queen bed was very comfortable and cozy. The staff is professional and friendly. The kitchen and bathroom are up to date with latest features. But...the BEST part of this HGVC property is it's superb location. It's in a perfect place - walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shops. The only real concern: nearby restaurant has noisy trash collection pick up scheduled for 7am every day - (not the most enjoyable way to wake up). We brought a sound mask machine - that helped us truly ENJOY all other aspects of this fantastic location.

Room Tip: Pick a high floor away from trash area. 3rd Floor is BEST. Try to get 2 bedroom unit if you can...

The hotel is in a great location for a lot of activities around the south beach area. Beautiful accommodations. Although an overall great stay the hotel itself had limited amenities. (No pool)
Highly recommend the Art Deco district. An overall great experience!!

The location is great on South Beach. It is a converted and renovated art-deco hotel so the spaces are smaller than most HGVC properties. King size beds are only available in two bedroom units, so I slept on the pull out couch which was surprisingly good. The couch design is like a 4' foam bed without any bars (it was a good sleep. Construction noise kept us up till Mid-night both nights. Noise and light came in around the entry door. This could be eliminated with a closer strip on the door jamb.

Imagine a location on Ocean Drive, across the street from the best beach area and only 1 block away from the restaurants to the south, the high-end hotel bars and ultra lounges to the north, and the clubs and bars on Washington or Collins. HGVC at South Beach is perfectly situated for a restful stay in the middle of the action. The staff is attentive and helpful and the accomodations and size of the rooms are an unexpected delight. I would recommend a stay at HGVC in South Beach!

The complaints about the timeshare had seemed a little whiny (there's an entire ocean across the street, but WHERE IS MY POOL?!) so I was hoping the place would be better than it comes across on Trip Advisor. Sure enough it was, except that this place somehow attracts obnoxious whiny guests- we just stayed away from them! The room was adorable and very Miami. The view of course was just of an alley and yes the room is not as large as the usual Hilton timeshare, but we could go on the roof and enjoy the view of the ocean and we appreciate that this is a historic hotel. We also enjoyed the hot tub. Being able to just step out the front door and be on Ocean Drive was AMAZING. Usually I stay further away and drive over here to have fun. We didn't even get a car this time. Absolutely nothing can beat this location. For the cherry on top, there is a Starbucks across the street. Bonus tip: the cigar shop across the corner does cigar rolling demos every day... ask them the time. The hotel has an arrangement with a beach chair / umbrella vendor. The hotel also gives and collects beach towels at the front desk. The hotel staff is very small and you immediately know everyone- it is almost like staying at a bed & breakfast.

Great condo. Very clean, had everything we needed for a nice vacation. You do not need or want a car in South Beach. Traffic is bad and parking is a hard to find and crazy expensive. We loved walking to everything, it was half the fun. Take one of the open roof Hop on//off us tours early in your trip, very informative and fun.
