“Great desserts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

My husband and I came here just to listen to the live guitarist and have desserts a couple of nights. We were disappointed one night when we planned to come by for dessert but they didn't have any guitarist, so we ended up going somewhere else. But if you do come by for the music, their desserts are fabulous! Nice portions, and so delicious. I think it was a mango or passion fruit cheesecake we tried one night, and an apple pie a la mode the other night. Service is friendly, although you might have trouble getting someone's attention from the porch area. I only went inside the hotel to use the bathroom, but it's very nicely redone. It's an authentic art deco building, and they've kept a lot of the old elements.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing your experience. Yes! Our desserts are to die for especially our passion fruit cheese cake it is my personal favorite. I am glad that you were able to see a bit of our hotel post renovation six months ago. Hotel Victor is an historic Centerpiece here on ocean drive. After seventy five years we have not lost our charm. We hope that you would stop by again, this time for breakfast after a memorable night or two with us.

We checked into the Hotel Victor for a 2 night stay and we were very surprised with the size of the rooms.. in a good way! The balcony is great which lots of the hotels in South Beach on Ocean Drive do not have. It was great to be right in the thick of all the action, walking distance to tons of restaurants and nightlife. ( its ALWAYS happy hour don't be fooled) The rooms were clean, and the bathroom was very large, great shower. Maurice the pool host was amazing, he does a great job. The pool is shaded by the building by early morning however so you need to be there earlier to get a good bed, or head to the beach across the street. The free breakfast was awesome. Fantastic benefit. Hotel overall was above our expectations.

On the down side...couple things but mostly staffing. Here goes..

Our room was entered with one single knock and they just walked in TWICE. This in my eyes is really inappropriate. It was not even maid service best to knowledge because finding them was impossible. Both days we had to call down to get our room serviced. We are early risers and were gone most of the day so it wasn't like we were hanging around in the room. The maid when asked to leave extra towels left one hand towel and a bath mat.. thanks... So I would request extras towels from the start if staying there two just doesn't cut it on a beach trip. Also we had a broken glass which we cleaned up ourselves and put the garbage on the balcony out of the way.. it sat there for three days. No one cleans the balcony apparently.They over charged us for valet parking which we didn't even have or use and getting it refunded was like I was speaking Chinese to front desk staff. Perhaps some training could be used on this front. We ask the bell hop and a floor manager ( guessing by suit and standing in lobby) for a seafood place recommendation and they said the only place they knew was downtown. There are 200+ restaurants on Ocean Drive and they couldn't recommend anything in our area?? Strange to me.
Overall I would stay here again for sure, these things are minor, and I will book my clients here however I will be warning them about the not so helpful staff so the shock value may be less.

Room Tip: ocean view is worth the upgrade. great people watching.

We fancied an outdoor evening meal to people watch and experience South Beach Miami, this restaurant did not let us down.
Great food, good service, well priced for the area and stylish location.
Would eat there again if I could.

Very nice hotel and great location . Staff VERY willing to please and correct any short comings but they still need to get their act together, which they are working hard to do.
Housekeeping needs improvement and consistency . Breakfast could be changed up daily to prevent boredom. Pool staff needs to be more attentive.....
Would we go back, YES as the staff are very interested in improving and were prepared to "walk the talk"

From the start my stay at the Hotel Victor was an excellent experience . The location, the staff, the accommodations were first rate. It's within steps of the beach, lots of restaurants and night life. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you'd like to be close to the pool, ask for a room with a walk out balcony onto the pool leve...

Beautifully decorated hotel right on south beach - the location couldn't be any better. The staff are very attentive and the rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast was also good. I can't fault anything about the hotel!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Hotel Victor and had absolutely perfect three night getaway. The hotel was funky/fun and Very comfortable. The rooms were spacious, clean and well outfitted with everything one would want. Alex, the Concierge, was extremely friendly knowledgeable and very helpful in very way possible. I would recommend it to everyone. You can't beat the location - in the heart of all the fun

Room Tip: Ask for Alex. Ask for ocean view, upper floor.
