“Wish We'd Stayed Longer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

Stayed in a King Suite for 3 nights. The bed was comfy and the large suite (bigger than my first apartment!) was clean, nicely done, and had everything we needed. Service was attentive and friendly. Our flight landed past midnight and checked in late with no problem. We came in drenched from a bout of rain, and the man who checked us in immediately gave us some towels and offered us an umbrella. We also had a problem with our bathroom the next day, and staff came to fix it immediately. We had a first floor suite and got some late-night noise from people on the main walkway, but was not a major problem. We noticed the wifi connectivity was very weak, maybe because the suites are located in a separate building. Overall, the location can’t be beat, and the amenities were satisfactory. We’d stay here again!

Stayed 3 nights at Dorchester Hotel&Suites 21-24Feb2013. We were a big party of 4 families (altogether 19people in 8 suites).
Originally we were booked in the standard hotel rooms but the hotel was very kind and upgraded us to suites. The suites were quite big, bedroom, livingroom and a kitchen. The location of the hotel is excellent, only one block away from the beach and within walking distance of a lot of shopping, restaurants, Ocean Drive etc. The hotel has a pool and also a bar (for drinks in the evening and breakfast in the morning), had the buffet breakfast 2 out of 3 mornings and it was OK for the price we paid.
All in all I found the hotel value for money (no luxury but South Miami Beach is expensive).

We enjoyed our 3 nights stay at Dorchester Suites.
Rooms were big, the staff was excellent, friendly and extremely kind and helpful.
Suite had a kitchen with all the necessary kitchen wear.
The location is fabulous and access to the beach is across the street.
In 10$ resort fee you will get complimentary chairs, towels & umbrellas through their agreement with the Marseilles across the street.
Also wifi charges was included in the resort fee. Pool water was warm and clean.
The floating bed was very beautiful and relaxing. They offer 1$ drink every day during happy hour 7PM-8PM.
Hotel valet parking charges were 28$ for a day. There is a parking garage on 16th st just 2 blocks awaw that offer secured and gated parking in 16$ for 24 hours.
Lots of restuarants nearby which opens till late. You can also catch Airport flyer bus just across the street.
Ocean drive was also 2 blocks away.

We got a 1 bedroom suite for $200 a night, which I thought was a great price. The room had 2 double beds, a pull out couch, a desk, a dining room table, a full kitchen, 2 closets and 2 flat screen tvs. It was clean and nicely decorated. I thought the hotel was well maintained considering its age. It was close to the beach, about a 5 minute walk and only about 8 blocks to the good bars on Ocean Drive. The 2 free beach chairs and umbrella that we got each day were great to reduce our costs at the beach. Most of the people we spoke with at the front desk were friendly and helpful. This was a great place for 5 girls to stay on a girls weekend because we could spread out a lot more than we could in a hotel room. I would stay here again.

We got this hotel on Priceline for $115 a night and I could not possibly have been more pleased with what we got for that price. The room was a good size, the staff was excellent, friendly and extremely kind and helpful. We were allowed to check in early, given a room with 2 beds on request even though they had us down for a king room (and they were sold out for the weekend). Yes the bathroom was showing signs of age, but the beds were clean and comfortable, and I loved the wood floors. The location was perfect, and it was lovely to have access to the private beach with complimentary chairs towels & umbrellas through their agreement with the Marseilles across the street. My kids loved the pool (it was rather warm due to being directly in the sun all day, but nice and big with plenty of chairs) and the floating bed in the courtyard. I would definitely stay here again!

Let me just say that I would definitely stay here again.

South Beach hotels can be really old and this place has been renovated with new furniture & paint to look pretty nice even though the hotel bones (and things like fixtures, A/C, flooring, etc.) still look like they are from the 70's. The place grew on me because the rooms are HUGE -- actually they're 1 bedroom apartments -- with kitchens and this makes up for the somewhat tired surroundings. If you're staying with a small child like we were, the extra space is wonderful. We were able to have a babysitter sit in the living room in the evening while our baby slept in the bedroom.

The location is fabulous and access to the beach is across the street, but easy. Noise levels are low and the hotel is recessed from the street so there is also no traffic noise.

Finally, the price is great for what you get. This is ultimately what sold me and why I will come back. It's not the newest, fanciest hotel on the strip, but it's comfortable, clean and an amazing value for what you pay!
