I've been to many different hotels and Pelican Hotel was by far the best service I've received. The staff are friendly, helpful and get the job done! We arrived before the check in time and the receptionist let us check in our bags so we can enjoy the beach. When our rooms were ready, our bags were already taken to...

One of the worse sleeps ever. You have a choice, very loud air conditioner and fan that sounds like a jet engine or loud music until 4am. Perfect location so if you just want a base for the beach and partying all night, then this is your hotel, but if you want to sleep, find another place.

Stopped in for a drink and appetizer while people watching on Southbeach. Of course it was a sidewalk cafe. The prosciutto with homemade ricotta was wonderful. So was our cocktail. Wish I could remember exactly, but it was a Margarita with ginger. Waitress was super friendly and didn't mind that we were just in for a bite and a drink....

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Pelican for a weekend in January. The location of the hotel is excellent - in the middle of everything and a short walk to the beach. However, the wi-fi signal did not reach our room at all (maybe because we were in a corner room?); and there was lots of noise from the...

I had a business trip to the area and decided to take a mini vacation in South Beach. I will return to South Beach in general and Pelican in particular. Carlos was welcoming and assisted us with things for the room and places to party. The amenities are great and the location is in the heart of everything. The value...

Been to SoBe a few times and this place is a great place to stay for the lively Oceanside Dr. scene. Great hotel and wait staff, unique and clean rooms, happy hour cocktails, Latin music right on the outdoor terrace cafe with an upper balcony as well, and the Pelican Restaurant prepares great food. Best Mojito around! Since you would...

My husband and I stayed here in December. The location of this hotel is excellent. It is in the middle of everything and short walk to the beach. It is however not without a few faults. The first is that the air-conditioning in the room was super loud and made it hard to sleep. The second is that bed was...

We had a great time at the Pelican Hotel, you are right in the middle of it ALL! We were there for Deco weekend and Ocean Drive was closed for cars so it was great walking down the street and seeing the vendors and other attractions. The suite was very clean and we had a great view of the ocean....
