We had an amazing time here at the Pelican, with an advanced check-in at 1pm, by Sugey. The Front Desk at the hotel has been super friendly and helpful, and they try to do anything to make your experience a wonderful stay. One needs to be prepared when booking a room at the Pelican, they are either Diesel fans, or just like funky boutique hotels, otherwise, everything else would just be cheesy.

We booked and asked for another "themed" room, but got Psychedelic Girl. The wall of the room was insane, but in the most fun way possible. Each day we also got one bottle of still and one bottle of sparkling San Pellegrino, so everyone in the room had at least two bottle of water.

The daily 4-6pm complimentary drinks (2 for each guest) was very generous, while the Mojitos were extremely tasty. The daily hot breakfasts were also extremely delicious, to the point where I was ordering the eggs benedict for two days in a row.

We were there for business, but also coincided with the beginning of the Gumball 3000 event in South beach, so that was really exciting.

Overall experience at the hotel: A-

Room Tip: Email or Call in advance to choose the room, but it's not certain that you will get the choice you picked, as the turn around is pretty much about luck.

Great location, right in the middle of all the activities ! The personnel was great, friendly & helpful. Was not aware at the time of booking that breakfast was included, & not just a continental breakfast. Also complimentary happy hour for the hotel guests. Although there was a 2 drink limit at happy hour, they were not sissy drinks. The room was not your typical hotel room, as there were themes to all of them, which made it more fun. Even having bottled water every day was a plus for me.

Room Tip: We had a room at the "back" of the hotel. If you don't want to hear the party noise on the street at 3:00 a.m., stay in the back.

Pelican Hotel is definitely the most unique hotel, with the best service, location, nice people,warm welcome, very helpful personnel and delicious food - anyone can ask in Ocean Drive Miami...
It is worth mentioning that you get free towels every day and free reserved chairs at the beach (which is right accross the street). Also the Happy hour is amazing. You get 2 free drinks (they make the best MOJITO) every day.
If i am to be again in Miami, this will be my never-changing choice.

Room Tip: Every room has its own unique interior design. The hotel is designed by famous Fashion Designer DIESEL.. Ocean view rooms are the best!

We stayed at the Pelican for a long weekend and selected it based on tripadvisor reviews. Though we've been to miami several times this was our favorite hotel and we'll definitely stay there again. Location on ocean drive is perfect, especially for those just looking to spend sometime on the beach. Staff is incredibly friendly and hospitable. Rooms are clean and each have a different fun theme. Also included in our room rate was breakfast, beach chairs, and 2 drinks per person for two guests which makes the room rate quite reasonable.

I actually did not stay here but came into the bar part of it and the Manger and the bartender Chris showed me and my friend a really good time. We came twice. They were so nice and sweet to us. Very nice place to visit. Im pretty sure the rooms are as beautiful as the staff was too.
