“Very surprisingly wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

We booked a 5 day stay at the McAlpin in march 2014. The McAlpin is a small hotel from the Art Deco era, but has been totally updated. We were joined by our 20-something daughters in a spacious 2 bedroom suite, which has everything you need plus a full kitchen. We didn't cook, but it is possible to do so. However it was great to have the ability to stock breakfast and lunch in a full kitchen. There is a rooftop patio and a small but very serviceable exercise room, Miami beach is terrific -lots of restaurants, miles of beach to walk on, and unusual things like parasailing which we all loved. And the weather was perfect in March 2014, after a LONG winter in the northeast USA. Only slight down side was it was college spring break week so the nights were noisy.

Room Tip: Only one of the rooms or each floor has an ocean view. The description on the hilton site doesn'...

My husband and I come to this hotel/timeshare almost every year. It's a wonderful location in the Art Deco section of South Beach acorss the street from the beach and very close to the Miami Beach boardwalk. This is a nice condo type unit with comfortable bed(s), kitchen facilities,and large bathroom(s). Helpful staff. New this year-bike rentals available in the next block at a reasonable price. Close to Starbucks. High speed internet access included.

Stayed at this resort for 3 nights and enjoyed every moment. We did not rent a car and did not need one. Beach is a short walk across the street. Lots and lots of restaurants, shopping, and nightlife all within walking distance. Highly recommend this resort.

Wonderful place to rest and spend some time together with lots of things to do. Plenty of shopping within walking distance, many restaurants to choose from also that can be walked to, many with entertainment. We took the Duck Tour - Great!

We had a great time...staff was very helpful and friendly. would definitely come back if we are in the Miami area. Hotel was close to everything. No need for car, actually we didn't really use ours so better off without one because you have to pay for parking. All in all, we had a wonderful time. HGVC is a great ownership!! All the resorts are 5 star with all the amenities!!

After reading other reviews on TripAdvisor, I was a bit cautious. We had a blast! The staff was helpful and friendly. The room size was just right. Noise was not an issue the week we traveled. Other guests helped us with tips such as where to get groceries. Our family of 4 walked to many sites and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Jeannette who checked us in was particularly helpful.
