Currently, we are in the middle stages of installing a new air conditioning system throughout the hotel. This will be followed by renovating the exterior and other projects as well.

This is my first time at this hotel. Well, doesn't exactly look like the online photos. Front desk staff and valet were very friendly. I upgraded my room to a higher floor and the room was very nice.

My only real concern is when my son and I sat on a lounger by the pool we were told we had to rent them. Keep in mind, these are not fancy teak or expensive chairs. I asked the pool guy if he was serious? There's no one here! He said it's hotel policy. I'm paying $325 a night for a room here and you mean I can't sit on a lounge chair unless I rent it?? Remember this is around the pool, not on the beach.
I've stayed at some pretty nice resorts around the state and this is a first. I can see renting the chairs on the beach. Ok, but cheap metal and vinyl loungers on the entire pool deck?? Really??
Now he did point out to me where the "free" chairs were. They were just that. Chairs. 12 old wood chairs with a pad and 6 rusted metal chairs with a pad of course.

Not impressed with the bar either.

We visited Sea View on 4th of July weekend with my large family. Everyone in the hotel was beyond accommodating to us. They all especially made sure my grandparents were taken care of and comfortable. We had three rooms including a handicap room. All three were very spacious and clean. The food at both breakfast and the 4th of July picnic party were fine. The staff was always very nice. The "bather's walk" to and from the beach/pool is a bit outdated, but then again why would they make it very nice if it's going to be covered in sand and water. The location of the hotel is great. I would highly recommend Sea View to anyone considering a trip to the North Miami Beach area.

Sea View is an older hotel but has been renovated and is really nice. It has a grand feel to it. We werent really expecting much from this hotel as it was a long honeymoon and we had booked 5 star hotels elsewhere.

The staff were really friendly, the room was huge with a big desk and tv. The bed was extremely comfortable and the air con worked great. They had a offer on at the time of a free continental breakfast each morning. We went down in the morning and were expecting your normal continental breakfast but instead they had the normal plus a person their that will cook eggs for you fresh and they way you want eg. Scrambled, omellete etc. The staff were also really nice down there.

I like that they also turn down the bed for you at night. I mean we didnt mind but its just an extra thing that no other hotel on our honeymoon did.

Bal Harbour is a really nice classy suburb with the Bal Harbour Shops across the road which is filled with designer brand retailers etc. The only thing i would recommend is definitely having a car but the downside to the Sea View Hotel is their car parking both valet and self-park is $20 per night and its just in a normal carpark with no cover.

I would definitely recommend anybody to stay at this hotel as it went far beyond our expectations.

Good location away from the crowds. Very well managed and maintained. Extremely clean. Staff, for the most part, pleasant and accommodating. Daytime staff seem to be more helpful and experienced. If you're not driving, trip from the airport could run you from $50 to $80.

Room Tip: try and get a room with balcony. makes a big difference.
