“Excellent value”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We stayed three nights at the Crescent Resort in early December and were really pleased with our choice. Right on Ocean Drive and opposite Lummus Park, the beach was about a two minute walk away. Helpful staff and a room that was the equivalent of a small one bedroom flat made it a really enjoyable experience. Our flight arrived in Miami around 6am and check in was listed as being after 4pm but on arrival we were able to deposit our baggage and the staff made an effort to get us into our room as soon as possible which was fantastic after a red-eye flight from South America. The suite was well equipped with a huge comfy double bed, a whirlpool bath in the bathroom, and a sofa bed settee in the living area which had a small perfectly equipped kitchen. There were two TVs one in the bedroom and one in the living area.

Reception staff were helpful and there was usually free coffee available in the reception area. There was a small gym in the basement which we didn't use, but it looked OK as long as you just wanted to use a treadmill - never anyone there when I looked but then South Beach was just a minute walk away - much more fun than the gym.

Plenty of restaurants within walking distance for breakfast, or it would have been really easy to self cater in the suite - choice is yours.

Would recommend this hotel as excellent value for money

Suggestions to improve would be a few more chairs on the verandah at the front of the hotel, as it was a great place to sit and watch the world go by and there were only three chairs. Also a couple more sun loungers and some parasols for shade on the roof terrace would be great.

To be in South Beach and walk across the street and be at the beach, nothing beats that. What a pleasure to stay in a historic Art Deco hotel. Everything was clean and the staff was very welcoming. This is a hard place to get into but worth it especially for the space inside the units and the location. To be able to have a kitchen is a huge plus in thus location. The one negative is the TV situation needs updating. If you can get into this property book it and visit.

Thank you very much for your feedback as it helps us to improve our service. As the property has recently come under new management, we are in the process of updating many different aspects of the property including but not limited to appliances, and TVs. I hope you will give us a second opportunity on your next visit to South Beach. We are convinced that you will be fully satisfied with the improvements.

We are from Finland and this was our first trip to USA and Miami. We were lucky, because our hotel was a great choice. The location is excellent and the staff friendly. Especially Jacques helped us a lot and was truly a nice person. Crescent doesn't have bar or breakfast area, which is a good thing. It makes the hotel entry peaceful and you don't want to eat breakfast in one place all the time anyway (we recommend Front Porch Café on Ocean Drive). Our suite had a kitchen, was sizable and bed was comfortable. All the South Beach nightlife is nearby, but Crescent is still a peaceful place. The building itself is beautiful Art Deco.

This was my second stay here. First time as a girls trip second time with my boyfriend. All the staff was very friendly. Any request that were made staff followed through immediately. Location is great. We had friends that stayed at another hotel and their "suite" didn't compare to ours in size, look, or amenities and they paid much more. If I had to make a complaint it would be that the remote to the TV in the bedroom didn't work but who comes to Miami to watch TV anyway? Will definitely be returning.

Thanks for a great stay. Our suite worked perfectly for 3 girls who are very picky. We had a full kitchen, kitchen table, fold out comfy memory foam couch in the living room, huge tub and sink and nice king sized bed. The front desk manager was excellent very helpful ,“I Totally Loved it! Can't wait to come back!”

I had a great time with you guys while vacationing in south beach this past week. The front desk manager Sagine was excellent and fast to my needs because I had my daughter with me it was challenged traveled with children. The maintenance guys (I believe his name is Franck) came rapidly to my room to help with the kitchen sink. I was very satisfied with the service overall. The room was clean and the crew were friendly and patient. Wow! you guys are right on the beach. I am from the north and it was our last vacation for the year before the winter.
