Great location, clean rooms, friendly staff and good european style breakfast. I will continue returning if the rooms rates keep reasonable for a 3 stars hotel. No view though. Garage next door with 20% discount.

I had a care package sent as a surprise for my fiancé upon check in and Domingo in the concierge was wonderful! Very responsive and got everything setup just perfectly. Fiancé had a great time and loved the hotel and area. Cheers!

The Essex House hotel was really nice and clean. The staff was friendly and serviceminded. We slept really well in comfy bed. Didnt hear any of the noice from the busy area around ocean drive. The breakfast was more and better Than expected, bagels or toast with Philadelphia, butter or jam only though but also Fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, muffin and other sweet bun, orange juice and coffee served in Their bar/restaurant. All really good and enough to start the day.You could sit inside close to the bar where the breakfast is served or outside next to the street and poolside. One minus is the shower which sometimes took time to have warm water. Really close to a nice swim on south beach. I recommend you rent bicycles and go a bit north where the beach is cleaner and not as crowded but the hotel has a nice location. Close to shopping on Lincoln mall and other stores around and also some entertainment, restaurants, clubs, bars on ocean drive if you are in to that. We didnt like ocean drive that much, Busy, partying touristic etc but it didnt disturb us at all. It was nice to see. The hotel truly is priceworthy. Bus stop not far away to take you to down town, aventura mall or the AirPort!

I was here for a bachelorette party the second weekend in August. When I checked out we took care of our bill. The next week I saw a 170 charge on my card. I've been calling the hotel for 3 days and leaving messages but no one had returned my phone call for an explanation. I wanted to see if we could clear this up before I take the next step but as you can see from their unprofessionalism and scamming ways they do not care.

Stayed there for three nights and the service standards were exceptional. Modest but perfectly acceptable room complimented by outstanding service by all staff. Would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment which is close to the beach and popular restaurant and entertainment strip.

Just returned home after a wonderful stay at the Essex House. The location is ideal for shopping, eating and beaching. No need for a car once you arrive.

First impressions: Great A/C on a very hot summer day, extremely friendly front desk service, and time-capsule-like (but somehow modern) lobby decor. Felt like we walked into the 1920's

Rooms were small and visibly old (for example, I imagine there are at least 20 layers of paint on those interior walls), BUT the furnishings are modern and very comfortable. And the room had a HUGE closet. The bathroom is small, but clean and bright. In short, this is not a dime-a-dozen chain hotel. It's a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel with history and character. And it was lovely! (The elevator in particular was like a time machine. Loved it.)

We purchased dessert in the hotel restaurant one night. Delicious treats, with excellent/pleasant service. We also took advantage of the free breakfast in the morning. It was the typical self-serve, "continental" fare and, in my opinion, a nice extra at this hotel. Not having to "hunt" in the morning is always a relaxing feature.

In closing, my absolute favorite aspect of this hotel was the outstanding customer service. Friendly, personable, helpful. I don't usually comment on this aspect of a hotel because I believe "good" customer service to be a standard requirement. But at the Essex House, it was exceptional and worth noting. No pretensions or fake-ness. These are real folks, enjoying what they do and making your trip memorable.

Room Tip: The 3rd floor was very quiet

It was a wonderful stay at Essex. The staff is awesome, and very nice ! We stayed 13 nights, our room was always cleaned. I liked the proximity from the beach, ocean drive and everything else. I definitely recommend it !!

It's also pretty quiet, what I liked, especially because ocean drive is not.
