We selected the Pelican for our honeymoon because of the high ratings on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed for a single second. The location is perfect: It is across the street from the beach (free towels and super comfy chairs, 12.00 umbrellas for the day) and because it is on the "main drag." We also were looking for a place where we could hang out, drink and people watch without having to walk several blocks to our hotel. Again, we were not disappointed.
As soon as we checked in, the staff knew we were on out honeymoon and a bottle of Prosecco was delivered (with a smile from Tito) to our room.
The Pelican staff is wonderfully international (Italian, Venezuelian, Cuban, Puerto Pican, Slovakian) and everyone was willing to share their stories as to why they are in SoBe. We really loved this part of our stay--- that the staff was welcoming, friendly and diverse. When we left, we felt like we had made friends.
The food was really good (we selected Miami for our honeymoon because we wanted to eats lots of different kinds of food). Prices were unexpectedly reasonable.
We stayed in the Executive Suite, room 201, which had a great view of Ocean drive. It was spacious, wonderfully designed and unique. We expected the sounds of the night life (as were were on Ocean Drive), but were surprised how quiet it was.
I would recommed this hotel to anyone and will probably return in the future.
Truly, the service, the location and the room were outstanding.
