“Fabulous position in Art Deco Heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

This was a lucky find, perfectly positioned outside the hoi-polloi of Ocean Avenue and with every charm. A small hotel with everything that one could wish for... close to that hoi polloi aforementioned, Wolfsonian Musuem and easy walk to Lincoln Avenue; and for this writer, a dream come true in terms of proximity to the beach and the Deco District. I set up my "Miami Office" outside on the terrace area, both morning and evening and much hilarity had when skyping back to Sydney for conference calls in the lobby. My first night (after a messy arrival from Orlando) found me in the room above the bar/night club of the hotel; but all quickly and swiftly sorted for this elderly traveller. Spoilt for choice with restaurants/bars and handy hint - no laundry service in hotel, but groovy and reasonable place on corner of Washington and 12th. With particular thanks to Miguel at front desk and his staff, and the absolutely delightful Elry who catered to my every Australian whim. I JUST loved my room. One can borrow hotel bikes if so minded - I was not only because of the driving on the other side of the road business.

Room Tip: If you don't want to stay up all night dancing, perhaps not a room above the bar/night club

What a nice place! We stayed on the first and last nights of our recent trip to Miami. We also stayed at the Loews so we didn't expect this hotel to impress us at all. Our room was upgraded to a suite with a balcony overlooking the garden cafe where we had a nice breakfast one morning and then the best mojitos on another afternoon. We rode bikes down to the beach. It was great. The people were so nice, Evens helped us with our bags, the bikes, the car - what a nice guy! I wish I had asked the other people's names because everyone was so helpful. Did I mention how good the moitos were? You should definitely stay here.

This is a cute boutique (Art Deco) hotel in a great location. This was my second time staying there and I would definitely book with them again. It's only a few blocks from the beach and the nightlife. The staff is SUPER friendly and the room service breakfast is AMAZING! The only con would be that they have a lounge downstairs that might play music until 4 or 5am, not a problem for me but if you want to relax and get some rest this is probably not the best place.

It was my husband's 35th birthday so we planned a trip to Miami,we stayed at Hotel Astor this was a very easy acess to all things in this area. The hotel staff was remarkable Michael,Luis,Burak,EvansI cannot remember all of the names but they were all so awsome the food and drinks were outstanding,everyone that worked here was neat and very informative, they even surprised us with a bottle of wine complements of them for my husband's birthday. Was a very clean and inviting hotel to stay in to say the least. We will be staying here again. Thank you to all of the friendly staff that work here for making our vaction one to remember.

The hotel is absolutely fantastic. Fantastic location. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, especially Burak! He was a major factor in planning our miami outings and hangouts.

The room was super clean, and renovated. Amazing service. Very good value for money. I do not remember seeing a pool at the hotel, but who needs a pool in miami. You have the beach and the well known pool parties.

I would give my experience in Miami a definite 10 out of 10. Thanks to hotel astor, and especially Burak who helped us very much in putting our miami plan!!! Thank you very much Burak!

From the moment we entered the hotel and checked in... We were greeted with great smiles and all the staff are very friendly. I want to commend Chris at the front desk for the special accommodations and excellent service he provided us during our stay! The staff really listens to your needs and provide great customer service. Amazing location, clean rooms, great valet parking , and amazing staff! This has been my second time staying in this hotel and I will always keep on booking my stays in south beach with them! If you are looking for a great weekend in south beach this is the hotel to stay in.
