4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Great place if you enjoy partying, drinking and socialising. Right on the beach and close to places where you can hire bikes, roller blades and segways, or just take a stroll down the beach front and enjoy the views! Domingo at the front desk is an absolute darling, if I could have put him in my suitcase I would have!!

Our room had a strange petrol smell on the second last day and they moved us to another room, no worries. All the staff are lovely and super friendly - highly recommend.

Jess and Emma :)

Wow...people really care in this hotel.... went to Miami the day before our cruise... our Son booked this hotel and it was soooooo nice......I forgot how great it feels to be treated like a queen. This hotel is not only in a perfect location but there's alot a perks. They had food and wine samples and an outside bar with lots of happy people. The staff members are very nice and Brad at the front desk couldn't do enough for us. Hat's off to your mangement...I'll be back soon.

Room Tip: Not near the bar.... if you want to sleep

The food is amazing. The coconut shrimps, a must !! (I'm actually craving for some....) Mini burgers too !You definitely have to try the drinks, and do not forget DOUBLE shot. The ambiance is always really nice. Music, lights, everything is there.
Obviously, its not really a place where you would bring your family to. It could be nice for a familly to pass by, but that would be it.

For friends, party animals or anyone trying to have a good time ! :)

From the time I was greeted at the door with a Pina Colada by the bellman, to the warm and fond farewell, everything was exceptional. I take a trip from Boston to Miami Beach every winter and have usually stayed at Fountainebleau, until now. The Clevelander was being renovated in years past but is now open and is more vibrant and exciting than you can imagine. It's right across from the beach and in the middle of everything. The rooms are super clean, spacious, and modern. Every night, the live entertainment was incredible. Dinner at the hotel's restaurant Zen Sai was outstanding, and guest's received 50% off. Brad and Chad at check-in were extremely welcoming, and Barbara, the server by the pool was the most friendly and attentive server in all of South Beach. Management here deserves a pat on the back as it makes sure its guests feel the true warmth, hospitality, and excitement of South Beach. Hope to be back soon!

Room Tip: What's great is that this property has another smaller hotel in back if you want a quiet room...

Went to the Clevelander to celebrate a birthday and went for the Rock Star suite~was not dissapointed! Had a personal concierge Chad and he hooked us up with everything even off property which made the trip awesome! The suite was off the hook and there is a reason they call it the rock star suite so if you are not there to enjoy the outdoor party till 5AM you are in the wrong place. But we could of stayed on property the entire weekend. The food was great and drinks reasonably priced for being in the middle of the south beach ocean drive action.
More importantly, every staff member was on top of their game and ensured our experience was over the top! I am recomending this place to anyone who wants to party like a rock star!

I went to the Clevelander on a Monday night for their famous Piña colada's which was delicious and much to my surprise DJ David Guetta was the guest DJ for the night lets just say that I did not stop dancing. I had a great night. Miami is always full of surprises. I had a great time.

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend. It is wild and crazy, but a great place as well. The manager for the Essex and The Clevelander was awesome and very accommodating, as was the whole staff. Drinks are expensive and food is okay, but the location is the best!
