The Beach Plaza Hotel

Reviewed February 3, 2013

We only stayed one night here, but I was a little worried after reading some of the bad reviews. We were so relieved when we opened the door to our room. I thought this place was really cool!! They did not charge us any extra "resort fees" other people have written about on here. We paid $25 for them to valet park our car for the night which we thought was totally worth it. The staff was very friendly, easy check in, our room was very clean and huge!! Full sized refrigerator with a small kitchen and microwave. The bathroom was huge too. The continental breakfast was nothing special, but what more do you want people? At least you can grab a cup of coffee and a banana to get you going.
The Location was great, as I said we only had one night in South Beach so we just walked around and explored! I would stay here again and would recommend to anyone.

We appreciate your gracious feedback. We are glad you did take the time to experience the hotel for yourself and are even more pleased that you had an enjoyable stay. We do have a resort fee; however depending on where you booked your room it may or may not be included in your prepaid package. Majority of our guests pay this fee directly to the hotel at the time of check-in. Parking is very costly in South Beach. This is because most hotels must rely on valet services for parking. Come and visit with us again!

You don't have to spend a fortune to have a good time in South Beach. Hotel is reasonably priced, and the concierge is particularly helpful with restaurant reservations, parking suggestions, and tours of any kind. Many languages are spoken here, and the location is one block off the beach.
Their front porch sitting area allows great people-watching and shelters guests from sudden rain storms.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the courtyard; street-facing rooms are noisy.

Decent hotel - nice and clean rooms. Could have more bright lighting in the room. But the decor of the room is good. Rooms are clean and spacious and very friendly and helpful staff. Parkign as expected is a problem in miami beach - but the hotel staff give honest options for street parking or valet depending on your requirements and stay

I stayed there with my son in Oct. 2012. It is a very nice hotel with a bit of a morrocean theme to it. Our room was a suite with a king bed and full kitchen. It is very updated and modern. They have a free continental breakfast at the bar every morning. The only real problem I had was the noisiness but i know that wasn't the hotels fault. It's less than a block away from the beach and close to a parking garage. Very nice location where you can walk to everything including Washington Ave. Where there are some pretty hip places to shop and eat.

The Beach Plaza Hotel is an economy boutique hotel with a great location. If you are looking for anything other then the basic necessities, such as a beach towel you will not find it. The hotel has one ice machine, and no vending machines. The hotel does have a lobby bar with $9 cocktails. The bar tenders are at least friendly. The breakfast room is supposed to be open from 8:00 – 9:30, which is wishful thinking. The items available in the breakfast rooms are extremely limited with signs posted only one of any item per person. The courtyard area is a nice place to sit, but you can’t get any food or service in the courtyard. The hotel has a very small elevator that can hold only three people. However several of the rooms on the second floor have no access to the elevator. The rooms can be best described as Spartan. Don’t expect to find a desk, a chair or any other furniture other then a bed, lamp and a TV. If you want to use the Internet, it is free but the signal is intermittent at best. The plumbing in the hotel seems to be antiquated with water from sinks draining very slowly. If you are looking for a cup in your room you will find then hidden in the ice bucket. The front desk staff is extremely inefficient and not very hospitable to guests. If you are looking for food, even in the bar you will be handed a take out menu. If you want a cup of coffee or tea, you will be sent to a nearby restaurant no place to get coffee in hotel no coffee makers available. If you ask to speak to a manager you might as well be asking to speak to G-D. The hotel lacks any sign of visible management and management will not speak to guests if they have challenges. The hotel has a great concierge named Brian and a bell staff that is very helpful. The hotel has a good location close to restaurant row and easy access to the beach. This hotel is suitable for anyone who wants location but requires or wants no service. I have stayed in nicer Motel 6 rooms then this hotel, the advantage to a stay at a Motel 6 you can get coffee, water, snacks, and soft drinks. There is a difference between economy and cheap and the management of this hotel is going for cheap. This property is not group friendly. There are many better properties in the same price range in similar locations that understand the word hospitality. The rooms are not inexpensive and the hotel goes for cheap not economy.

Room Tip: The so called suites on the second floor do not have elevator access. Check to see which appliances...

We appreciate you taking the time to give such a detailed feedback. We would like to clarify some points mentioned in this review. We serve breakfast every morning at 8am. There are 365 days in a year; it may be opened a few minutes after 8am maybe twice in a year. With that said, breakfast is served on time. The courtyard is just that, a courtyard. There are no activities in the courtyard except for sitting or lounging. The hotel is a boutique historic building that has an elevator which is protected under the historic board. It does hold three people at a time and there is nothing the hotel can do about that at this time. It is serviced monthly and very safe. There is never a guest who did not enjoy his or her stay due to the elevator. This is because we have a bellman on duty and the main building is only three-stories. We have 3 buildings. The main building has 55 rooms with an elevator. All rooms in the main building have access to the elevator. The other 2 buildings have 2 floors each. We have 5 different room types. We have a presidential suite, bungalows, studio suites, standard kings and doubles. All rooms come with varying décor and furniture. The ideal place to store cups for ice, is in the ice bucket; such an easy find. The property is very group-friendly. For the year 2012, we have successfully accommodated 33 groups, 15 of which are repeat business. The hotel, as was commended in this review, has great service such as concierge and bell services. Our average occupancy is 98% with only 77 rooms. Hence most of our guests do enjoy their stays with us. We are definitely not the Motel 6. The hotels in this Art Deco district do not strive to be a flagged property. Hence the term boutique. Thanks again for staying with us!
