“Close to beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

The hotel staff was excellent. The hotel is gorgeous and well maintained. The rooftop pool is fabulous. With that being said I have a few complaints. The food on the room service menu is way overpriced ($76.00 for 2 omelets and 2 coffees) for the quality and quantity of the food. We ordered breakfast through room service and the food was bland and sparse. The room was decorated very nicely but there was not a table to eat our room service breakfast at. The room we stayed in was luxurious but it had no window so it felt closed in. If I stay again I would request a room with a window. My only other complaint besides the breakfast meal were the hidden fees. We booked the room for a specific price but when we checked in we were informed of resort fees, which was fine but upon check out there were more fees. I would prefer to know about all the fees upfront in order to budget for them. Overall, I would recommend this hotel and would stay with them again.

Car was damaged by their contracted parking staff. They will not fix. They will not return phone calls. Very poor customer service. I am not afraid to spend $. We spent $500 for dinner Friday nigh at the Gale. I will never spend another penny at the Gale.

clean, knowledgeable staff, great food, bar service, pool service, & front desk very organized.
The location was nice - close enough to night life if needed it and far enough not to be in the mist of it.
The electric car service is great to see it all and then pick where you want to be!

OK, this hotel was not the least expensive option in South Beach, but it was worth it. Best part was the caring staff - especially concierges. They were proactive in asking about any needs and special requests, all of which were satisfied with an impeccable desire to impress. The hotel itself is quite nice, clean, etc. The rooms are medium sized and modern; the A/C works great. Room 307 had an especially large bathroom! The rooftop pool and bar are also excellent. Did I mention that everything is CLEAN? Very important, and the hotel delivers. Our party only had breakfast in the hotel, so this review cannot speak to the hotel's dining and "nightclub" options. But I'm sure they're just as swanky as the rest of the facilities. Overall, a very good hotel that's within 5-10 min. walk of all the Ocean Drive action. The beach is right across the street, and the hotel provides chairs and towels there. Also, this hotel is right in front of Delano and National hotels, and right by the Lincoln Road mall. Great location.

Room Tip: They have a 4pm check-in time and are not too great about allowing late check-outs (after 12pm). So...

My wife and I stayed a night before I flew back to California for my deployment. The service was so personal and I felt they were very detailed oriented to our personal needs. One of the best stays ever and we are planning on having our wedding for the family @ The Gale sometime next summer. Thank you for one of the most amazing stays. My wife & I really enjoyed our time @ your amazing hotel!! Keep up the amazing jobs you do:-)
