Special little hotel with all the right stuff. Can't wait to go back. Had no idea it would be next door to the #1 Steakhouse. Convenient, clean, comfortable and great service. Best room for the money anywhere.

Decently priced, clean boutique hotel in Bay Harbor islands. Close but not too close to the craziness of South Beach (15 min drive). No elevator, but not too much of a problem as it only has two floors! Saks 5th ave and upscale Bel Harbor shops within walking distance as well as a nice public beach. Beach was never overcrowded. Check in was quick and easy. Parking on premises for $12 a day (hotel feeds the meters). Room is a decent size, could use a larger full length mirror, a little more counter space in bathroom and an in-room iron. Shower is large.

Staff was friendly and helpful throughout our three night stay. Complimentary breakfast offered was a pretty good selection for such a small hotel (bagels, croissant, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, coffee, OJ etc.) The hotel is also connected to The Palm restaurant. We never visited but it seemed fairly busy for dinner.

The only complaint I have is that the walls are extremely thin and you can hear every little sound in the room next to you as well as in the hallway. When I say every little sound, I mean every. teeny. tiny. sound.

In general, I would recommend this hotel to friends and colleagues for a quick stay.

My fiance and I enjoyed a short pre-wedding vacation here, 6/8-11. It kept popping up on my hotel search but since I wasn't familiar with it, I kept ignoring it. Finally, I checked it out, read the great reviews and went for it. It was just what we needed: small, in a quiet but upscale area, clean, comfortable, great service by everyone from the front desk to the cleaning staff, nice little complimentary breakfast. We walked about 10 minutes to the beach nearby, took a 40-minute city bus to South Beach, had great meals at Cafe Primi Pasta, Sazon Cuba, and The Palm Restaurant that is attached to the hotel. We had a nice relaxing time, the weather was perfect, we would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Room Tip: We had Room 225A, right over the parking lot. We heard the garbage trucks, cars, music and people t...

Needed just a small quaint place to stay for the night without lacking in quality, Daddy O was more than we could have asked for! Fantastic customer service, very clean, very sheek, just perfect for our mini getaway. Great color scheme and good vibes all around. Such a great little boutique hotel! Absolutely worth every penny, would 100% stay there again and would recommend it to anyone needing a place to stay in Miami. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

On Friday the 6th of June I arrived at Daddy O Hotel in Bay Harbor Islands pleasantly surprise. We arrive at 4pm are room was ready when we got there. The check in was so smooth. Harold was our concierge. He was awesome and treated with respect so did the young lady at our check out on Sunday. Our room was fantastic. Nice size for a hotel room. It was very clean. I been to many hotels around the world for a small Hotel, Daddy O was on the top of my list. Very close to South Beach and to beaches. Not luxurious but very sheek,modern and clean. In addition the wifi was fast even included breakfast from 7-10am. I definitely recommend Daddy O. Can't wait to go back. If I would have gotten a free day I would have stayed.. lol would have called sick. Thank you for a wonderful time Daddy O.

Room Tip: rooms in the back are the best are quieter

Find a promotion or use a discount website/app... DO NOT PAY OVER $110 a night. It's all is worth. The rooms were not ready on time... One wasn't even ready at 5:00pm... Parking isn't easy... Crew it's very friendly but not enough people working. No pool. Nice and clean rooms. Ask for extra soap, shampoo and towels before getting in your room... Not enough for 2 people.

Great hotel, would definitely stay there again. Very cozy environment, great welcoming staff and amazing location. Very close to the beach, mall, and great restaurants. Driving distance to South Beach. The staff was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us great recommendations of where to go eat.

Room Tip: You might want to get a room towards the back side of the hotel, front room was a little loud.
