“Scent of an engagement”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

I'll always remember this hotel for various reasons.
*I got engaged here on a wonderful beach.
*This hotel smells amazing.
Scentsational scents in the lobby, Malin Goetz hair and body products in the bathrooms.
*Great staff
They knew the proposal was coming, but they acted so cool! We also got a room upgrade. Vicky on the beach was great, he was a partner in crime with my fiance for the proposal.
*Good food
We had breakfast at the hotel very morning it was awesome, though pricey obviously. This is Miami.
*Great scene
We didn't need to go anywhere for pool parties, or clubbing. It was all happening at our door step.
*Great Drinks
Yummm
*Great location
The hotel is close to everything. We had a few recommendations for restaurants and we could walk to almost all of them. Not a far cab ride from the north end either.


Random note: I am from Turkey, it was interesting to notice they have T-Box products.(A company that went bankrupt in Turkey.) They must have bought them with a huge discount.

Miami is very expensive. I also don't like 20% tip included in every single bill. Oh, and the hotel tried to charge me for stupid flip flops I happened to unwrap. They were full of advertisement and 5 sizes too big for me. They were 30$ or so!!! I complained and they took it off from our bill.

Congratulations on your engagement!! What a wonderful and happy time! Thank you for the compliments about the staff, smell, and scene! The flip flops are a charge and I'm sorry about the confusion.

My boyfriend and I spent four nights at the Shore Club a few weeks ago. We've both been to South Beach several times and have stayed at a number of different hotels there.

The Shore Club's location on Collins is great - close enough to Lincoln Road, but away from the craziness of Ocean Drive. The staff was wonderful across the board, helping us with a car rental and restaurant reservations (on Valentine's Day - no easy feat). At check-in, we were offered an upgrade (a small suite with two bathrooms), and then a different room when we asked for a balcony. We ended up eating most of our meals at the hotel - lunches by the pool and dinners at Terrazza. The food was excellent, and the wait staff was accommodating of special requests.

Our one complaint was the decor in the rooms. The furniture is very simple and minimal - which is fine if done with high-quality materials, but this looked cheap and somewhat Ikea-ish. And it seems ready for an update - our desk chair was pretty beat-up, and the armchair appeared to be upholstered with a white bed sheet. Props for the large bathroom, though, and the wonderful-smelling Malin and Goetz toiletries.

Thank you for your honest review! While I am sorry you didn't enjoy the minimalistic style in our rooms, I am so thrilled you loved the large bathroom and our Malin + Goetz amenities. I'm obsessed with the rum bar soap! Hope you enjoyed your Valentine's dinner with your boyfriend booked by our amazing concierge team. Come back again soon!

My partner and I stay at The Shore Club everytime when visiting Miami Beach. The staff at all levels of this hotel are friendly and helpful. It's always clean and has a great relaxed feeling from the lobby to pool side.
Looking forward to our next visit.

I stayed in this hotel for a few days in February and I have to say that I expected much more since the daily rate is for me expensive.
The location is very nice and de the pool is great but I was disappointed with the service. It seems like if you are not someone important they just don't care that much. In the reception, when we nedeed something, all of the times looked like they were doing us a favor and didn't have to attend us.
About the room service: towels weren't delivered in one of the days, the kit of shower wasn't replaced in 4 days and they were knocking on the door to clean Your room before 9 a.m ..shouldn't they have a control of who was already out or not before waking you up like like others hotels do?

Dear "Yupitrip,"

Our deepest apologizes that you felt our service failed you. We treat everyone with top level service and go out of our way to ensure each guest feels important. We are sorry we let ourselves down. Also the Housekeeping Department has been spoken to about the issue with your towels not being delivered and the knocking before 9am. This is not common so we do apologize sincerely. We hope that you come back and give us a second chance.

Kind Regards,
Dorothy Jean "DJ"

My husband and I recently stayed at the Shore Club. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The front desk, concierge and the wait staff were so helpful and friendly. We hadn't been to Miami before and the concierge helped us book a city tour and made dinner reservations. The lobby is so beautiful as is the outdoor area. The place smells so nice, like freshness. It's hard to describe but so nice.

In the Miami area on business for a couple of days and first time staying at Shore Club. First of all, the staff could not have been more nice and helpful. Everywhere, from front desk to Concierge (especially the concierge group). They were so friendly and gave me great recommendations for restaurants. With respect to physical property, it reminded me of many stays when traveling overseas. Modern, kind of funky (especially the outside lounge area with purple floor). The room was kind of stark/ simplistic in furnishings ( plastic tables etc ). If you're looking for a Ritz type experience, not your place. But, the room was clean, the shower good and the bed comfortable. Two things to keep in mind. You must valet park and besides taking 10-15mins to retrieve your car each time because of no onsight parking, the price was unexpectedly high. The rooms have very thin walls. So, if you happen to get stationed beside playful couples, you will be tired for your meetings next day without the fun!

WOW, thank you for this lovely review! We are so appreciative of your nice comments towards our front desk and concierge team. The valet parking is $24 for day parking and $42 for overnight parking. The valet team does suggest about 10-15 minutes waiting time for retrieve your car so it is wise to call down from your room if you are in a rush! I am so glad you had a great experience as your first time here. Hope to see you again for many more times!
