fantastic hotel and friendly, helpful staff. also recommend the front porch café for a lazy breakfast (French toast =om nom nom)
the room was really cool, great size and the hot tub was like icing on a cake. the view from our room wasn't amazing (a/c units) but the morning parrots made up for that!!

Good Afternoon cavyclaire,

We are extremely happy you enjoyed that French Toast at the Front Porch Cafe. It is absolutely delicious! Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. The room with the hot tub is a very enjoyable room. Hopefully you return to the Z Ocean in the future to enjoy it once more!

Warm Regards,
Z Ocean Hotel Management

This hotel does not have the greatest entrance ,which is not helped by the road repairs ongoing when we visited .However once inside the Z hotel is wonderful . Very well staffed ,who are helpful and knowledgeable .the rooms are superb, make sure you are at least on the second or third floors . One thing you simply must do is visit the hotels cafe/restaurant and have a plateful of their green eggs ......delicious with super service.

Room Tip: Get a high room

Good Afternoon Ellen1331,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Z Ocean Hotel. We are hopefully the city of Miami finishes the road construction sooner rather then later. The Front Porch Cafe is such a treat and those Green Eggs are one of the best selling plates they have. Hopefully we see you soon here at the Z Ocean Hotel.

Warm Regards,
Z Ocean Hotel Management

My fiancé and I stayed at the Z Ocean Hotel for 4 nights Fri 03-21 to 03-24...we had never stayed here before but as a IHG platinum member I wanted to give it a try. We had a partial ocean rooftop suite and it was absolutely fantastic! Your own patio off the bedroom and a spiral staircase to a spacious rooftop area with a hot tub and sun beds overlooking the ocean and city-the most unique hotel room we have ever stayed at and we have stayed at some very nice ones. In addition to the room the entire staff was friendly every day and greeted you with a warm smile and friendly hello. The Front Porch Cafe was very nice and convenient...very good food...great happy hour with drink specials and half priced appetizers. They close around 11pm but if you want to grab a drink there are numerous places within a short walk if you want to head out or go up and enjoy a drink in your room. We walked the beach a lot and checked the other hotels down the beach and we were so glad that we picked the Z Ocean Hotel-we thought it was by far the nicest hotel with the best location. When we come back to South Beach we will stay here again without question!

Room Tip: Choose the rooftop suite!

Cool little boutique hotel right in the middle of all the South Beach drama.
But you would never know it if you just wanted to hang out in your cozy King bed or sit out on the Lanai and take a quick dip in the pool a few steps away.
Kudos to whoever designed the walls.
Aside from a few doors closing about the only thing I ever heard was one screaming pi**ed off little infant who wanted his breakfast ... NOW. As you know the little ones can approach decibel levels on par with your average jetliner when motivated lol. Aside from that blissful peace and quiet.
Even had a party going in the room next door most of one night. Barely even heard the base from the stereo.
And when you're ready to plunge into the mad circus that is South Beach it is literally steps outside your door.
What's not to like ?
... well the minibar is very well stocked with enough alcoholic beverages to stage your very own "club nite" but it could benefit from a few Diet Cokes for the sundrenched beachgoer to come home to .... and puh-leeze make sure you keep ahead on restocking those made for midnight snacking Peanut M&M's
I'll be back to check ... thank uuuuu ....... ;)

Room Tip: Lanai suite. Check in to your room and be at the pool in five minutes flat.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Concierge was great, he made tour and dining reservations for us. Hallways were freezing. Rooms are spacious & clean. Very close to the beach where lounge chairs & towels are available for hotel guests. Starbucks across the street, shopping & dining are walking distance. The only drawback was the noise on Ocean Blvd at night.

Room Tip: Rooms on Ocean Street are noisy at night.
