“cool and hip hotel”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

I love this hotel ! It is in a perfect location on South Beach - right in the center of everything but yet away from the noise and hustle . We booked the penthouse room with the roof terrace and we absolutely loved it. The staff was very professional and they prepared and cleaned the roof top jacuzzi promptly and privately -they have a different access to the roof so you will never see them. the location is great, the service is good, The hotel has a very nice boutique feel - small , private and elegant. My favorite was the pool - great idea for the glass bottom - I had quite a great deal of fun diving and looking through the glass. Excellent hotel - I would consider staying in it again.

Room Tip: the penthouse with the roof terrace is just incredibly cool !

We had a fantastic staying at this hotel.
We booked a penthouse room with a private roof top terrace and jacuzzi. The room was great: king comfy bed, a full sofa, 2 flat screen, 2 closets, a huge bathroom with 2 washbasins and a rain shower!
The wi-fi is only available with the IHG card, but you can subscribe their reward program for free in the hotel. The wi-fi is also available and working on the terrace!
I did appreciated the complimentary Nespresso machine and coffee!!!
The staff all .. The one in the hotel and the one at the restaurant is great. Really helpful!
The location is also super ... Close to the shopping, to the beach and to the restaurants.
I would definitely consider of coming back!

We spent three nights at this hotel recently and had a wonderful time.Lovely big room with everything you needed in it.The bed was really comfortable and the toilet and shower was very nice with plenty of toiletries. Also large sun terrace with table chairs and loungers looking onto Ocean drive what more could you ask for.The hotel also has it's own pool and sunbathing area on the second floor.The staff were very nice and helpful.The location was great lots of lovely restaurants round about and the beach just a stones throw away twenty four hour deli across the road on Ocean drive served lovely breakfasts.Great hotel sorry we could not have stayed longer .

Stayed in the Z Ocean hotel a number of times. Location is perfect. At the end of ocean drive opposite Espanyola Road. The rooms are luxurious with comfortable beds and very nice rainshower. Rooms are soundproofed well, the ones overlooking the pool are the best. The lobby and pool area are nice but not flashy. The Front porch cafe in the hotel is great for breakfast and lunch.

Fantastic place to stay. Upscale, Chic, Trendy, and Excellent service. Booked a Penthouse room with its own rooftop terrace, and Hot Tub. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I have found my new SoBe home away from home. Room was great with a kitchenette, comfy bedding, full size couch with pull out bed. Nice chairs, 2 Flat screen TVs, Huge Granite bathroom, Awesome Rainfall shower, plenty of comfy patio furniture. Private pool area with its own bar area was a high light, excellent service at the pool. There is a Restaurant downstairs, but it was always packed so we didnt try it. Room service was timely and good. Beach area is a couple block walk, but they make it nice for you with chairs and umbrella. Plenty of restaurants and nightlife in walking distance.......This place is THE BEST !!!!

Room Tip: Top floor "penthouse" rooms have the amazing rooftop terrace. Also lots of rooms right on...

This is a direct response to macesullivan's review of the z ocean hotel. I am the mother they refer to in their review. The problem with internet reviews is that small minded people can sprout a load of rubbish without it being monitored in any way. It was not a strange confrontation; the husband stamped on my young child's foot without apology and I challenged him. I find it petty and embarrassing to have to respond to this review and am only doing so to defend the hotel staff. I have returned to this hotel with my family for the third time not only for its service but because all of the staff are amazing and make us feel like family; particularly the pool staff Valaria. Macesullivn you re in Miami; it is rich in its multicultural diversity, your problem with me was deeper than stepping on my child's foot. Perhaps you should try holidaying somewhere like Germany- I think you may feel less threatened there!
