I always saw the Colony Hotel on postcards and publications pertaining to the South Beach area. I just knew there was no way we would be able to afford to stay there or anywhere else on the famous Ocean Drive. I thought this area of South Beach was the playgound for the rich and famous. Boy, was I fooled. Reasonable rates and friendly atmosphere. Not pretentious at all. You don't have to be rich or famous, but they sure made you feel like you were.
Loved the location of the hotel and the cleanliness of the rooms. The icing on the cake was the friendly staff. The service was impeccable. No swimming pool. Don't need one because the beach is right across the street. The decor of the room was modern and up to date and the TV was an LG LCD with a great picture. The views on the website are what you see when you get there. No surprises....
They have different beds, I noticed, in some of the rooms. We had a low to the floor platform bed. So, if you have a problem with that, you might want to ask to see the room first, or when making a reservation think to ask them about the bed. Rooms are small, but remember this is a boutique hotel. After all, you are not wanting to set up residency, you better be out having fun in the sun. We had so much fun, we stayed an extra day and they were very accommodating.
If you want the flavor of South Beach, this is the place for you. When recommending a place to stay in South Beach, I will not hestitate to recommend the Colony Hotel.
