Being a resident of South FL. makes it easy to travel to South Beach, but picking a hotel is not that easy. Picking the Colony was a great choice, they had front desk service and rooms were clean. I enjoyed my stay and look forward to using this hotel again.

I stayed at the Colony Hotel on March for 5 days. I had an amazing time. Staff was great, rooms very clean. Harold gave me the best service you can imagine. The service was so great that I'm going back this week (Oct. 6-10). Harold, you are the best!!

We travelled the USA for 3 months driving west to east and Colony Hotel in Miami was by the far one of the best experiences we had.
The hotel staff were very friendly from the start and always went above and beyond for us.
The prices were excellent considering the location, which was perfection. We paid more to stay at a hotel that was a 15 min drive out of Charleston SC!!!

The rooms were very clean & provided just what you needed. No complaints there.

The location, being on Ocean Drive, meant we were surrounded by plenty of places to eat & drink & even better, just across from the beach!! This meant we hardly ever had to catch a taxi anywhere, everything was in walking distance.

We would particularly like to mention Harold Rondan & Richard Carries.
Both staff members were exceptionally helpful & made out time at Colony fun & delightful!!!
We extended our initial stay from 4 days to 1 week and despite his best efforts, Harold could not accommodate out extension, which we totally understood and appreciated. Then having no choice but to stay at another hotel in Miami, just proved to us again how amazing Colony was!

We subsequently decided to return to Miami to end our 3 month travels in Miami. A huge decision as we cut out Chicago (as per the original plan) to return to somewhere we had already been. Luckily, Harold was a great help at ensuring we had a room to stay in for the Labor Day weekend! Again going above and beyond for his guests.

Needless to say we would strongly recommend Colony Hotel. No complaints here!
Job well done to Harold & Richard... Keep up the good work so we can come back soon!

We celebrated our 28th Anniversary with a trip to South Beach and a stay at The Colony via an American Airlines vacation package this month and had a fabulous time. The weather was perfect, the water is still warmed up from a long summer and the sun was hot hot hot. There was a Women's Beach Volleyball tournament going in in front of our hotel where we saw Carrie Walsh the Olympic star. Speaking of the hotel - The Colony is a little gem right on Ocean Drive in SOBE. We stay there everytime we come and it keeps getting better and better. The rooms were renovated a few years ago and are stylish and comfortable. They have a great $4.00 breakfast that includes 3 choices - a ham/cheese omlet, a pancake or 2 eggs & bacon. Hard to beat - with the addition of great coffee and sitting right on Ocean drive. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the front desk where we were given restaruant tips and other helpful advice on maximizing our vacation. The only small issue was there was a shortage of beach towels a couple days. All and all a fabulous vacation experience!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are comparable. If you are way at the back you sometimes get woken up by the garba...
