“Beautiful hotel, good value and great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

Recently got back from Miami after spending 4 nights in Red Hotel during Easter Holidays. This hotel is nicely renovated with good size room and very clean. The Hotel is close to everything but away from busy and loud part of South beach so you can get a nice rest. Staff in the breakfast area and restaurant were nice and very friendly but it was a not the case at the reception. There were one or two nice approachable staff but the others not so friendly and seems like they didn't want to be there.

We arrived earlier then check in time due to our flight and they charged us $50 to give us the room earlier. Other hotel I stayed in normally if the room is available and clean they don't mind giving you the room but in this hotel they charged us and we were so tired and jet lag that we paid for few extra hours. Overall it was a nice stay and would consider staying there again.

After much research into a South Beach hotel, I settled on Red South Beach, and am extremely happy with the experience! First of all, the location is great, I didn't even bother with a rental car (I did take a cab a few times; cab fare from the hotel to South Beach locations...at least the ones I went to.. was really cheap). Also, being across the street from the beach wasn't an issue at all. Beach access was easy and the hotel has beach chairs and towels to loan. Best of all staff of the hotel and its restaurant. They were extremely helpful, warm and inviting (the South Beach margarita is pretty good too). Every meal I had there was awesome.

Finally, this post would be a waste if I didn't mention the showerheads. Most hotels have weak, low pressure showerheads; Not this hotel, it's showers have [what I believe they call] waterfall showerheads with a strong stream. It felt so good I could have spent all day in the shower.

I look forward to returning to South Beach...and Red South Beach is my hotel.

Regarding my reviews below...I didn't use the spa, so I can't really comment on that. But given the rest of the hotel, it's bound to be a wonderful experience.

Well located in South Beach, it has a nice decoration. Good rooms and renewed bathrooms. However, if you rented a car, it is not a good idea to stay here, as they don't have parking. You can park on the streets around it, but it is very hard to find a parking space.
The staff was mostly friendly, but they put us in a room behind the stairs door, so the wifi didn't work there at all.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get the last room of the corridor, after the fire scape. No wifi

The hotel is in a great quiet location right across the road from South Beach but far enough away from the main part of the beach. We walked along the boardwalk all the way down to the Art Deco area which was quite a walk but really enjoyable. Our room was OK it had a bit of a funny smell and was very small but it was fine. The bar was good although some of the staff were not very attentive. I probably would stay somewhere else if I was to visit again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Red South Beach during the last week of March. Our anniversary fell a few weeks before our trip, so we mentioned that on our reservation. When we arrived at the hotel, at about 10am, we were happily given access to our room (complimentary) despite the fact that check in is at 3pm and they charge $50 for early check in. Off to a great start! The room was small and had some slight cosmetic damage, but it had a lot of storage space including a large closet and another closet with a mini-fridge as well as a good sized dresser. The only strange thing was the glass-walled shower that only had about half of a glass wall, so there was no way to completely close the shower. Not a problem though. We had a nice window in the bathroom and we could see the ocean from the window in the bedroom. The staff was fantastic and always friendly. We never had an issue with housekeeping for the five nights we were there, they were always prompt and thorough. We never ate at the restaurant, but we did enjoy our complimentary happy hour drink each day. We never had the same drink twice, but they were always red in color! The hotel was about a 3-minute walk to the beach, and we never had a problem getting our towels from the front desk. We walked about 15-20 minutes to Ocean Drive and Lincoln Mall at least once a day each day we were there, and found that it was a very pleasant walk despite the distance. We did take a cab a few times and it was only a couple dollars. Overall, we were very pleased with the experience we got for a good value. We would probably stay in this area again rather than spend twice the money for a hotel a little closer to the action of South Beach. Special shout out to Zenaida who was always so friendly!

Room Tip: 502 was at the end of the hall, far from the elevator, but the door was strangely placed in the fire...

I stayed for 1 night, so I did not get a chance to really review the amenities of this hotel. Nonetheless, the hotel staff is very friendly and check in was smooth, with no issues. I got a great deal on Hotwire for this hotel, and it was as inexpensive as you are going to get with Miami hotels.

The hotel decor is very chic and red and white is there theme. When entering the room it is very clean line and simple, with pop of red in the room. They do come with a safe and fridge in the room. The bathroom is simple and comes with a rain shower, which I happen to like.

The cons:
Carpet really needs a deep cleaning or just new carpet all together, it was dingy. The lighting is not really good in the bathroom, when trying to apply makeup. And very little space to place any thing. But it's Miami and your really only there to have fun, and not be in your room all the time.
Overall I liked the hotel and would stay again,but they need to really update the lighting and carpet.

I dont know where to start. We stayed 4/24 - 4/29. The hotel was extremely clean, the staff (Zenaida, Nury, Charlie and Antwon) were so friendly and kind. You don't need to go elsewhere, you have all you need at the hotel. The restaurant offers a comp drink daily and the food was Amazing!!! We went to celebrate ten years being together and we will definitely be back. Gracias Zenaida y Nuri!! :)
