Red South Beach Hotel
Ranked #63 of 214 Hotels in Miami Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 1, 2013

The hotel, on corner of 30th and Collins, is around 15 blocks north of the South Beach restaurant and entertainment area but is only $8 cab ride away and the room was half the cost of those further south. There are few restaurants near the hotel but breakfast in the hotel proved to be really good - and good value. A free cocktail and half priced drinks are available between 5pm and7pm.
Red colour is themed throughout the hotel which was a nice change. The rooms are O.K. but the aircon went from too hot to too cold with no interference from us and the bed was too soft for our liking. Lighting in the bathroom could have been better.
Staff were very obliging and courteous and pointed us in the right direction for tours.
This is a good place to stay if you are prepared to be away from the action.

Stayed a night after a cruise. The staff here was wonderful. They let us check in early and gave us a large room when they found out it was our honeymoon. Staff member taught us our way around SoBe and let us know how to get where we wanted to go. Outdoor eating and pool area was great. Room was really cool! View out window was an ugly rooftop, but we were really only in the room at night anyway so who cares. Got free drink at bar which is the daily norm. Was a 2 minute walk to the beach. We liked that it wasn't in the heart of SoBe so the beach was quieter which was how we wanted it. But still, downtown was within walking distance. The only downside was only one elevator was in service and we were constantly waiting for elevators. I would totally recommend this place and we'll certainly return!

Room Tip: Make sure you're not right outside the elevator.

We stayed at Red Hotel in late September. The hotel itself is extremely clean, staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are a really decent size. We were really pleased with the room.

That being said we were located on the 7th floor and the elevator took 10 minutes to arrive. After getting fed up and taking the stairs down to level 2 we had to take the elevator anyway as the stairs stopped there. Beyond that a sign informed us "alarms would sound" if we continued with the stairs to the lobby.

The location though is pretty filthy and construction is happening absolutely everywhere. Not a lot of options for parking - street parking is available but incredibly limited; we ended up parking a 10 minute walk up the road in an open air carpark near the beach. Had to wake up at 7am though to re-fill the meter so we wouldn't get towed. No parking garages remotely nearby.

It's an affordable hotel and good value for money - we weren't impressed with the area as a whole.

Room Tip: Request a room close to the ground floor so you're not waiting for the elevator.

We stayed here this past weekend with our two children ages of 12 and 8. The staff are very professional and patient with their guests. I have to say, Osbel at front desk was very welcoming and also was very kind by giving us VIP Club Passes for Mansion which made us feel very special since me and my husband rarely get some free alone time without our children. The hotel provided us with beach chairs and towels which came in handy. It's such a cute little boutique hotel. It is located far enough from busy South Beach, but close enough to hop in the vehicle and get there within 5 minutes($8 cab fare).The room was a good size cute and simple but had a very comfortable bed. Upon checkout the front desk manager was very sweet and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

I stayed at the Red from Wed to Mon in mid September. The room was a perfect size. You have a mini fridge
And a safe to use. The tv was kind of small but that's minor. The room was clean and the ac works great. The hotel provides you with beach towels and chairs which is great. The beach is 2 minute walking distance and is amazing. If you want to get right in the center of the sobe craziness just hop a $8 cab to Collins and 15th and walk down. The pool is great as well. Charlie is the best! She is the lead concierge and will go above and beyond to assist you with your needs. I needed to order a new iPhone and everyone was super helpful in helping me get it. Also the restaurant is yummy! Ask for the snack menu. Pretty affordable and good wings fries and cheese sticks! Will def stay here again if I come to Miami.

The Red is not directly on the strip in south beach, it's about 15 blocks down but that is only about a $8 cab ride back and forth which is nothing. The hotel is perfect for the sunny weather, it is directly across the street from the beach (which is pretty quiet because it's only shared with two other hotels) and has a small swimming pool. The hotel provides you with towels for the pool or beach and beach chairs, but you can also rent lounge chairs at the beach if needed. The hotel also has a restaurant called Barok which his great food and happy hour from 5-7PM where you get one free drink and the rest are half priced. The bartender Antoine was very very friendly and lots of fun. Charlie the concierge is super sweet and really helpful. She can make reservations for you and has a great list of fun things to do every day while your here and can also book excursions for you. Charlie made our stay so pleasant. She made sure we had everything we needed a a gave us a comp breakfast just because. All the staff are very welcoming and friendly. The room size is pretty decent for a Miami hotel and I would absolutely stay here again!! Thanks for a great trip Red South Beach Hotel!!!!
