“Great stay in Miami Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

This hotel is perfectly located, on Ocean Drive, steps away from the beach.

Pros:
- location
- great restaurant in the building
- provides beach towels (have to ask for them at the front desk)
- free wifi

Cons:
- valet parking only (25 dollars) is off site and takes 30+ minutes to get your car.
- no in-room mini fridge or coffee maker.
- You can probably find something comparable for less money.

Room Tip: Rooms xx1, xx2, xx3 face Ocean Drive St. Check them out if you want ocean view and don't mind st...

We had a good stay at the Marriott, Winter Haven Hotel.... Delicious Food all day...the rooms are extremely small but they are clean and well maintained. The most fabulous thing about this property is the staff. Amber at the front desk was absolutely delightful and Barbaro and Alex were fantastic. I wish i would have written down everyone's names because I want to make sure they get the recognition they deserve because they truly are what made our trip a success. Thank you very much to the entire staff at the Winter Haven!

We drove down from West Palm Beach and stayed at the Winterhaven Hotel on Miami Beach. From Barbaro, Alex and Amber at the front desk, we were treated royally by all the staff. The bar in the lobby squeezes fresh orange juice and the location is right across the street from the water with nothing in the way to block your view. The hotel has been all updated and the bathroom is lovely, but tiny. We loved the deco style and would stay there again. We really recommend it.

Room Tip: Get an upgrade to the top floor!

I planned a long weekend getaway for my wife and at first I was a little hesitant to stay as a tourist in the same city I live in, but after staying at this Hotel I could say that we experienced Miami Beach in a totally different way. We loved it so much that we are already planning another one next months. The hotel was great. Awesome service, super clean, great food, great ambience, it smells like brand new. I would stay here over and over again and I recommend it to everyone.

Picked this hotel for it's location and character. It's a pristine art deco hotel that has tastefully updated the rooms. The lobby is wonderful. This hotel has character and might not be suit the traveller who prefers the big sterile hotels

Stayed for 4 nights Aug 17-20, came in very late on a a delayed flight. the night clerk at the front desk seems like he doesn't know how to smile, but that's okay, he's efficient enough. Elevator was broken that day (and for the next two) and there was this decrepit looking old man who is supposed to be a porter, but I was worried he might get a heart attack as we were 5 people occupying 2 rooms on the 3rd floor, everyone with luggage. No big deal, we carried it ourselves. There is no fridge in the otherwise very clean and good smelling room, and the old guy brought us some ice cold water.

The room itself is very quiet and comfortable, came with a safe. Pillows and the bed were top notch and the bathroom is modern and neat. I thought the $175 a night was reasonable considering this was on Ocean Drive and 14th right across the beach. The street scene right outside was lively and everything was within a 5-10 minute walk. Excellent location. There's a large cooler of ice cold citrus water on the lobby, which really helped on the 95+ degree Miami weather.

Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: our room away from the street was quiet, although it's adjacent to the elevator and when it star...
