Room Mate Waldorf Towers

Reviewed November 18, 2013

After multiple stays at Park Central, we decided to try something with more modern fixtures. And since we regularly stay at Roommate Grace in NYC, we knew what to expect from Roommate Waldorf Towers on Ocean Drive. It did not disappoint. We stayed in the deluxe ocean-view suite. I knew when I booked that I had picked a good room, but the desk clerk told me we had “THE room.” It was on the top floor (3rd floor) on the corner with windows facing both east toward the ocean and north along 9th. The room was quite large with a long white couch, and the bathroom was big too, with both a bathtub and a shower. This room is designed for accessibility, so it is extra spacious. Like most Roommate hotels, closet and drawer space are limited. A simple rearranging of the shelves and safe in the closet would allow longer clothes like dresses to actually fit. Duh. Being on the corner, one would expect lots of noise, but the window are double-layered, making the room surprisingly quiet. The goofy frig makes more noise than Mangos across the street. The AC worked great. The restaurant that fronts the hotel is a bit annoying to pass through, but that comes with the territory on Ocean Drive. Unfortunately, the hotel has no arrangement with anyone on the beach offering chairs and umbrellas. That was a come-down from what we were used to with Park Central. All in all, we had a very good stay in the Towers.

Room Tip: #303 is "THE room."

Stayed for two nights in Waldorf Towers.
Location was great, the hotel's restaurant was very good.

Staff friendly and very pleasant, for me and my wife the service was nothing short of wonderful.

All in all, as a couple that stayed in the Hotel (as part of our honey moon on the east coast), we enjoyed it very much and recommend the hotel to anyone that prefers smaller hotels close to the beach (compared to luxurious hotels but that are not walking distance to the beach).

2nd time at this hotel, my sister joined their mailing list and we got $50 off a night ! I got an upgraded room as a returning customer , had a fantastic view of south beach. Noise didn't disturb me at all, but they provide earplugs if the noise is too much.

Really friendly staff on reception . We used the vallet parking, it's $5 cheaper to pay the valet than book it via the hotel, $25 for 24 hours ,

Lots of restaurants near by or walk 15 mins up to Lincoln mall and there and lots of shops!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view if it's low season

This was a very nice hotel, located right in front of the beach and with a restaurant outside that serves a nice breakfast (always ask if they have the breakfast special because when they have it, it's cheaper and very good, especially if you don't eat a lot). The room was clean, comfortable and very well decorated. The only negative point was that the shower didn't have a lot of pressure, but I can understand as this is an ecologically conscious hotel. One thing that didn't bother me at all was that it can be noisy at night, especially on weekends, because there's a club right on the side of the hotel. Fortunately, I sleep very well even with the noise. The reception staff were really nice and the cleaning ladies always left some chocolates on the bed. Wi-fi was available for free and that was excellent. The area has a lot of restaurants, bars and supermarkets at walking distance which was great for us because we didn't have a car. I will probably come back to this hotel and I will certainly recommend it.

Room Tip: If you don't sleep very well with the noise, ask for a room on the upper floor and facing the se...

I was really happy with the great location for affordable rates. If you are looking for a place to stay which allows you to enjoy the nightlife in South Beach, this is the place. If you prefer to enjoy the beach during the day, close to the Ocean Drive, this is also a great spot. All without having to worry with where you will park your car. But if you do have a car, no problem, because the valet services are also great! In fact, what impressed me most, which made my stay really enjoyable was the staff. Always in a great mood and willing to help. From the housekeeper to the front desk, from the guy at the bar/cappuccino machine to the people working at the restaurant up front, they were all great ! Oh, the restaurant has great food. I had a great time.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter, but the noise is not that bad at the front and the view is much nicer...

This Miami trip was above expectations. The Waldorf Towers hotel is located on the best spot on South beach (you can count the Camaro's, Mustangs, Bentley's, etc from the terras :)). Nice hotel room, nice people, very nice Restaurant for breakfest, lunch & dinner (separate owner). The key west trip in our own Camaro convertible was the cherry on the cake!!
