It was my first visit to Miami, a girls' long weekend and my friend and I decided to go a little beyond our budget because we were very taken by the Raleigh's pool. We are so happy that we decided to stay at The Raleigh instead of at any of the other hotels on South Beach. From the moment you arrive the staff are extremely accommodating. Our taxi door was opened for us, our bags were taken up to the room and the service only got better from there. The front desk staff, especially Jeffrey and Fernando, were extremely helpful in terms of giving us restaurant and entertainment recommendations and making sure that we always had something to do.
The restaurant staff remembered us each and everyday we came down for our meals. And it was lovely eating our meals outside under the trees, surrounded by beautiful orchids and overlooking the pool.
The pool is as beautiful as the pictures and the staff was great. But the best surprise for us was the beach access and the service on the beach. John, Lester and Allan work hard to make sure all of the guest are comfortable, have a nice spot on the beach and get the food and drink that they are hungry for.
My friend and I took a look at the other hotels nearby and I do feel like The Raleigh might be smaller than the others and the inside has a bit more of an older styling. It has a vintage feel, nothing is shabby, but if you're looking for ultra modern, then you won't find that here. But it's such a charming hotel.
The location is really close to Lincoln Road and a quick taxi ride or hop on the 25 cent circulator down toward the more "happening" area of South beach. All of the clubs and crowds are further down, btw. But that was great for us because we never had to worry about noise disturbing our sleep.
The Raleigh was great and I definitely will stay here again!
