“We love The Tides!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

We were in Miami for a very low-key bachelorette weekend. We wanted to stay somewhere that had a great atmosphere, pool area, and outdoor dining so that we could really enjoy our time at the hotel. The Tides has it all! The outdoor seating area is fantastic for people watching. Every morning while we were there we would go sit at the tables with umbrellas out front, order champagne and fresh grapefruit juice, cappuccinos, breakfast, and spend hours just taking it all in. We also spent a few hours one afternoon sitting at the beautiful bar and chatting with the BEST bartender, Caleb I believe. He was great with drink recommendations and we had so much fun chatting with him - it was a highlight of our trip :) The rooms were very large with walk-in closets, comfy beds, beautiful views, and nicely appointed bathrooms. I would recommend staying on a high floor if available, to avoid street noise at night. My only advice for The Tides (and to be clear, this doesn't bring down my rating) is to enforce a dress code at their outdoor seating and inside at the bar. I can imagine that might be difficult on South Beach, but people were sitting to eat at the outdoor tables in bathing suits and it kind of killed the classic, elegant, chic vibe that the hotel lives up to in every other way. There were also some guys who didn't appear to be staying at the hotel who were using foul language and just being loud and rude in general in the bar area. I would recommend the hotel have a no-tolerance policy for that type of behavior, to help to maintain the overall amazing laid-back atmosphere.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less street noise

You can't argue the location of too many hotels in South Beach and The Tides is no exception. You're in the middle of the action, the rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and accommodating. I don't have any complaints, but my socks weren't knocked off either. Our room was on the smaller side and quite narrow, but it overlooked the beach, although we weren't afforded a balcony or a window that you could open. I didn't make it to their pool, so I can't speak to that, but it looks nice enough.

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.
