My brother and i stayed at the Pelican. it was right off the beach needless to say great location. however, the staff really made it a great place to stay. the rooms were nice a bit small but cool. Each room was themed. that was cool to but the staff really made the place shine.

Lets list the hard facts that made The Pelican the BEST choice for our lodging while in Miami: *FREE ALCOHOLIC HAPPY HOUR FROM 4-6pm. Yes. That's AS MANY DRINKS that you would like from these hours as a hotel guest. Just a heads up, once you START getting their yummy mojitos, you won't be able to stop. (Ask for them...

There are so many perks about this hotel that I don't know where to begin! Before I do, I must point out to you that my stay here almost didn't happen because the mother of my travel companion fell very ill shortly before our trip. Since we had purchased my stay on Hotwire, without trip insurance, there wasn't a lot...

The two of us friends shared a twin room. It was small but adequate for space. The bathroom was big but sink, mirror, everything was in the room which made getting ready tricky. Also, bathroom not ventilated so made getting ready much more sticky! The AC in the room was nice and cold. The fridge and water was a nice...

We stayed in the Viva Las Vegas room, and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was clean, the rooms were fun but small, and the lobby was not air conditioned. We love the character and charm of this art deco district hotel! The staff were very friendly, helpful, and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We would...

Stayed here for three nights at the end of our annual vacation in Florida. There were so many hotels to choose from in the same location and I was really attracted to the Pelica by its website and the TA star rating that it had. It certainly lived up to expectation from the minute we walked through the door. The...

What a perfect spot! Restaurant has amazing food, tasty mojitos from the bar.... All the staff are friendly and personable. My room was kinda creepy - half way to hollywood - it reminded me of sleeping at my grandma's house in the 80's. However, it was unique, and the bathroom was large and spotless. I would absolutely stay again!

Thank you so much for your kind review. We have a great room called "flower Power" that is a softer theme. We are confident you will love the decor. Best regards from the Pelican team!

We stayed at the Pelican for three nights during May 2013. We had an amazing experience. The check in staff was very friendly and helpful, and we also got upgraded, which gave us a beautiful room with a great ocean view. The rooms are very clean and nicely furnished. It has all the necessary amenities, as well as complimentary wifi....

The staff at Pelican Hotel was absolutely, hands down THE BEST!!! From the time I checked-in to the last minute of my departure. I was completely exhausted upon arrival. I was greeted with champagne and a room key. No worries...Just Relax. Later on before going to dinner there was a knock on my door...a staff member offered a printed forecast...
