I had some reservations prior to my visit based on the mixed reviews here on tripadvisor, but have to say I was very happy overall with my stay at the Colony. All hotels on Ocean Dr. in South Beach are pretty similar in size and feel. So I'd have to say the price point was very reasonable. Rooms were clean with original hardwood floors. The A/C unit always kept the room nice cool and saved us from the miserable MIA humidity! Sufficient closet space and cubbies for your clothes and personal items. They even have a flat screen TV and nice ipod/iphone adaptable radio device so you can play your own music. Bathroom although small had all the necessities, the shower head is directly attached to the ceiling which was fine. The daily maid service was on point, beds were made and fresh towels were provided each day. Location was the best, it's directly across Ocean Dr. from Lummus Park and the beach volleyball courts. Very short walk to/from the beach and convenient if you have to take a bathroom break in the middle of beach time. Also to the west on Collins and Washington, there is plenty of great shopping, and Walgreens and Walgreens Liquor just down a couple blocks on 5th St. I'd definitely stay here again on my next visit to South Beach!
