We stayed in room 311, which is on the third floor and very near the elevator. Our room was neat, quiet and did not have any street noise. The bed was very comfortable and the TV was nice too. It did not face the street, it faced south. The service was very good. We went down to have breakfast and when we came back the room had been cleaned. Breakfast consisted of Coffee, juices, sliced cheese, bread, yogurt, cereal, milk, apples and oranges. If you come by car, parking could be a problem, but they have valet parking, and a municipal parking several blocks away, which charges your credit card $1.75 per hour. We had gone to see family at another hotel on 94th street and used their municipal parking and selected 4 hours and came back and re-upped our time, but we were told that on weekdays you can only stay 2 hours in one spot, and then you have to move your car to another spot, and on weekends you can stay 4 hours and have to move your car. We were lucky, we did not know that, and did not get ticketed.
Esteban was so helpful and personable. He helped us with our suitcases. He told us about the valet parking and the municipal parking and also which restaurants to go to. We were very lucky and got parking right across the street from the hotel 2 nights in a row. Sean was also very friendly and explained things to us that we needed to know.

All in all, we were very pleased with our stay and will come again.

First time last year at Penguin, this time at sister hotel President. Martha, Sean and Esteban were excellent. Martha helped me confirm that a person who found my lost phone was legit. Esteban was helpful in getting rental cars and was very pleasant and personable. Sean brought some of my Caribbean flavor and was very sweet and extremely professional! I think I found my South Beach home!

I was looking for a hotel around Ocean Drive and I am so glad I found The President. From the moment I got there the everyone was friendly and attentive. Lynn was very nice and we even received complimentary drinks and breakfast. The room was very clean. Did not expect such great service from such a small establishment!! I would highly recommend to all my friend and family. No regrets.

We stayed here in July of 2013, and we actually booked the President for our trip this year... Until Andrew the attendant heard it was our anniversary and upgraded us to an ocean-view room at the Penguin, the sister hotel one block away.
Based on our previous stay, we can say the rooms are quite similar to the Penguin's: small and simple, but adequate. However, I liked the shower stalls better at the President, and the bathroom definitely had more space in general.
Breakfast was pretty good, and the bartender made great conversation in the evening. If you want to be in the Art Deco district but don't want the horrendous noise of the 6-10 St. area on the oceanfront, this is a great place to get a good night's sleep while still being close to everything that makes South Beach wonderful.
Not five-star quality, but those kinds of hotels in Miami Beach don't preserve the local style and flair like this one does.

We booked a one night stay at The President Hotel and we really did enjoy it. Check in was quick and easy by the lovely Aneesa and the young guy she was training up. We ended up letting out daughters have the family room we originally booked and we booked the penthouse for a bit of peace and quite.
We bought the open top bus tour tickets from Estaban and we had an amazing introduction to Miami. The tour was an excellent way of getting to see as much as Miami as you can in such a short space of time.
Overall we had an excellent stay and will go back again, except this time with mosquito repellent. Thank you everyone for a wonderful stay
