“Definitely a return visit”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Aside from the tropical storm on the night of arrival- which the staff made the best of for us- this was a fabulous stay. We made our choice of Art Deco hotels based upon reviews and comments about rooms. This was a perfect choice. The room was wonderful and the staff excelled. I give them my highest evaluation and absolutely intend to return.

Room Tip: Try to get a junior suite with a beach view. But, my impression is that there is no such thing as a...

A GREAT 4-day stay. All staff of every level were pleasant, helpful, smart, efficient and in a word - perfect. The room was fine (where was the telescope?) , the front patio area is perfect for dining or for simply a rest. Location is exactly where we wanted - middle of Ocean Dr. I cannot think of one tiny negative.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are bright and seem more roomy.

Beautiful rooms and definitely the best on Ocean Drive, really spacious, fantastic views and well equipped. Every room has a sea view. Staff excellent and really friendly. Restaurant quite expensive but the location makes it worth it. We have been coming to Miami for years and although we have tried other hotels on South Beach we always return to Tides.
We would thoroughly recommend this property.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent. It can be a bit noisy on the Terrace until about 10pm due to surrounding pr...

We stayed in room 502 which was massive. The view over the park and beach beyond was amazing. The room was immaculately clean and was cleaned each day and bed re-made etc. The bed was king size and very comfortable as was the settee. All the staff were very helpful, polite and enthusiastic and could not be faulted.
The pool area was sunny in the afternoons and because of the winds coming off the sea we ended up lazing by the pool most afternoons. The sunbeds were comfortable and were freshly covered regularly and towels changed. A nice touch was the cold water and cold lemon water dispensers free to use by the pool.
The only reason I did not give an 'excellent' rating was due to the restaurant which did not match the excellence of the hotel (although I understand the hotel does not run the restaurant itself.) The menu's were unappetising and pricy so we ended up eating elsewhere, and there is a huge choice on Ocean Drive. It was unsurprising that most restaurants were busy but the Tides restaurant was empty. The hotel really must do something about this as it lets the experience down badly.
Much has been said about the noisy bar next door and yes it was noisy up until 11pm but this did not worry us as we go to bed later anyway.
Overall good job Tides. We would stay there again without hesitation but please do something about the restaurant.

Room Tip: Views are good from 5th floor and above.

This is the first time we have been to South Beach and the first at The Tides. Awesome location, and the customer service excelled! Had a great time with the bartenders - so approachable and really interested in making sure your stay is a happy one! The staff - from the bellmen, front desk, room service and housekeeping - could not have been more accommodating and pleasant! The saying "sometimes you get what you pay for" was absolutely correct in this instance and so worth it! Thanks to everyone at The Tides for a memorable vacation.

Long weekend trip to Miami, and wanted to stay on South Beach. It was between The Tides and The Betsy - but reviews of the Betsy frequently cited that property's very small rooms given the price (it's pretty expensive). So we chose The Tides, and we had a wonderful time. Granted, it was pretty expensive, so you'd expect it to be nice. What we liked best, aside from a comfortable, huge room with a great view overlooking South Beach - was the sense that it was a haven in the midst of the chaos and energy of South Beach. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, all requests were promptly addressed, and the food served up by the restaurant was pretty good, although there are many other options - but it was fun to hang out on the Tides' terrace. And the live music - a great saxophonist - was a terrific counterbalance to the chaos of the Palace Bar next door. The only drawback (aside from the expensive room rate!) is that it's an old building so the elevator is pretty small, and there aren't a lot of extra plugs in the room which you find nowadays in most hotels, but this is minor. We really loved our stay and will definitely book at The Tides on our next trip to Miami.
