“Recently Renovated and Great Location in Heart of South Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

As returning guests, we are even more delighted in our one-bedroom suite at Hilton Grand Vacation Club in the heart of South Beach, across from the park and beach. Great for walking, beach, restaurants and enjoying the local scenery. At the top end of the Art Deco beach strip, we are out of the fray but an easy walk to it. Across the street from the park and beach and around the corner from Espinola Way and ten minutes from the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall. The rooms are very nicely renovated with great comfort, style and amenities. Although we are eating out mostly, the kitchen is a convenient complement. The front patio with comfortable seating, and the roof top sun deck and jaccuzzi, are delightful features. Great value and and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Any room is fine since the real attractions are the location and the front patio. We appreciate a f...

Once you get here, you are able to walk to everything South Beach has to offer. The front porch is a great people watching spot and is especially nice compared to all the other hotels on the strip because there is no bar or restaurant that gets in the way of the view. The rooftop areas are a nice quiet place to relax. The one bedroom suite is perfect for two - I would not want to share with more people.

Room Tip: Even though it costs $25 to get chairs and umbrella for the beach, it is well worth the price.

Hilton Grand Vacation Club South Beach is the place to be in South Beach. It is across from the beach, close to public parking, walking distance from Lincoln Mall and the groovy restaurants. The rooms have full kitchens. There is a hot tub and laundry on site.

We stayed here me n my girlfriends for a party tgat took place in this hotel, everything was great, the check in, the room, the hallways n rooms were very clean, except when we were leaving we went to the breakfast area but the staff were not professional, they treated us like we were there to beg for food, which was a big disappointment, we already had coupons n some of us paid for it.
Other than this everything was okay

No restaurant, no pool, no self parking. Valet- $35 a night.. Rooms were nice, location was great, but very hustle-bustle. Reminded me of the New York property. If you are looking for family friendly- don't recommend. If you are looking to party, this is your place! Staff was friendly. Very accommodating...

We really enjoy staying at these Art Deco style buildings. The rooms are modern in spite of this architecture. The location to the beach, restaurants and shopping is awesome. You can walk anywhere. Take the art deco tour starting at the art deco center on Ocean Blvd. Make sure you get to Lincoln Street. The only disappointment was the cost of parking and the fact that the valet staff seemed to 'use' our car for some joy rides or side trips.
