Reviewed June 12, 2013

I'm a Miami Native and have stayed in a lot of hotels in South Beach. There is a new FIVE star hotel in Miami Beach, The Gale. The staff is first rate. They are helpful, kind, polite and most importantly they smile like they love their new home. The pool on the top floor provides for a great view of the city and beach. The rooms are perfect for a couple. Very, very, very clean.The TV is at least a 60, high definition like I've never seen before. It feels like you are watching a 3D screen. You can actually seat down and drink, eat or people watch right on Collins Ave. You are in the middle of all the happening in South Beach. Their sister hotel The Shelborne (1 block down on the beach) provides another setting and pool +the chairs and umbrellas for the beach. I give it 5 stars. Great place to be... Thank's Gale (-;

We ve booked this hotel for our arrival in Miami and it was perfect.
The hotel is very well situated, on Collins Avenue. (same level thand Delano, SLS...) The beach is 5mn walking distance and the hotel give you access to one of the private beach.
The rooms are not very big but bright and cosy. We were facing Collins Avenue, and we were nt bothered by the noise. The design of the room is very nice too.
We only had breakfast at the hotel, it was very good and again the design of the restaurant is very nice! There in a pool on the roof top but we didnt go.
I would recommand this hotel for a short stay as the price, quality and situation is perfect!

Dear Laura1444,
Thank you for sharing your impressions on your recent stay at the Gale. We are indeed located in the heart of South Beach, walking distance to the main attractions and just steps away from the Ocean. I am pleased you have had an enjoyable stay in our brand new remodeled hotel. We hope to see you soon!

Amazing staff with amazing leadership. The Gale at South Beach is what a boutique hotel on South Beach should be. There was a great vibe with all of the staff that reminded me of the southern hospitality that you would find in a small town but with a Miami flair. The facility was amazing, from the front open air seating, the juice bar, the dining room, the rooftop pool, the rooftop bar....We used them all and used them well. Stay here! You might run into me as well because this is where I will be staying!

Was there for 2 days and really fell in love with the place. There are dynamic spaces that feel intimate and comfortable:
a parlor with a piano and bespoke cocktails, a large outdoor bar with a BBQ, a delicious fine restaurant, patio space out front for some coffee and sun, a pool that's bright during the day and electric at night....same can be said for the club down below :)

Not to mention the rooms are cozy, modern and clean and the staff is extraordinarily accommodating. I feel like I owned the place by the time I left, everyone was so gracious.

I had an amazing time at this hotel. My fiancé and I went to south beach for a weekend getaway! We absolutely loved the location, the service, the room, the pool, etc... The customer service was great & the breakfast fresh and healthy (YES, healthy which was awesome) ;). Would stay there again.

We were there for an event. My daughters friend won & invited her. Their free room was full so I just showed up. At first told no rooms buy one opened up. Big thank you to Robert for finding me a room. Adrien took my bags up & was so nice. Everyone at front desk was great. Only stayed one night it was great. My only complaint was the pillow.

I had a great time at the Gale South Beach. The hotel is located just north of main South Beach strip, which is definitely a good thing in terms of having a more relaxed experience. The service is great, the rooftop pool is great and the rooms are large enough to make your trip feel a few grades above your typical college spring break trip.
