“Can't go wrong with Surfcomber!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

I highly recommend the Surfcomber on Miami Beach. This is the second Kimpton I've stayed at and have yet to be disappointed with the chain. The amenities are fantastic and the value of the rooms is well above other mid-priced hotels. The surfcomber is located at 17th street, just a very short walk (just a few blocks) from South Beach hotspots. Far enough away to be directly on the beach and a little quieter, yet close enough that it's a lovely stroll down to restaurants and bars. The location is perfect. The beach is on the backside of the hotel, just on the other side of the pool. They do charge a $20 resort fee for two beach chairs. To rent an umbrella is $19 and extra chairs are $13. The pool is a good size, though there were alot of mosquitos around. The lobby is beautiful and they offer free coffee and tea in the morning and an all you can drink happy hour in the afternoon. When we were there they had Rex Goliath red/white wine, and one day Sangria. The room was small, but clean and laid out well. We (2 of us) stayed in a room with 2 double beds. The sheets and pillows were soft and the room was fairly quiet....as much as you can expect in a hotel. We had a garden view room. The bathroom was the only part of the room that I was disappointed with. The "shower" was basically a very small bathtub with a rain shower head, and it was a little hard to shower in. Half the tub had a fixed glass "door" and the rest didn't. The vanity was oversized for the small bathroom. We only ate at the hotel once, but the Salad I had was fantastic! We also took advantage of $5 wine during happy hour, after the free happy hour ended. The hotel offers 3 schwin bikes to go exploring on the island and you just have to make sure you check them out early. The doormen and front desk ppl were so nice. Two times we got complimentary champagne from them, when we went to ask a question about our room keys. Overall, I would definitely stay at the Surfcomber during our next trip to Miami, you can't go wrong!

Thank you for the recent stay and sharing your experience with the TripAdvisor community. We are happy to hear you enjoyed all of the amenities on property. Isn't that sangria delicious?!?. We have been working on many different solutions to ensure those mosquitos stop hanging out on our property. We will be sure to consider you feedback the next time we are making changes to the bathrooms. Thank you again for the stay and we look foward to welcoming you back soon!

I just returned from my first trip to Miami and I could not be more pleased with quality of the hotel and hospitality of the staff. Kenneth and Rai were the most delightful staff I have ever encountered. They treated us like we were the most important guests in the hotel. We took the Art Deco tour with Chris and learned some wonderful history and even tried some delicious Cuban coffee. The pool was immaculate and there was always plenty of chairs and umbrellas so no need to wake up early and safe a chair. Our room was clean and the bed beyond comfortable. This hotel goes above and beyond I am going to make it annual event to go back and visit.

Room Tip: Do not leave anything on the beach of value after dark if your swimming. It will be stolen.

We chose the property primarily due to its proximity to the Miami Beach convention center, which by the way is a straight quick walk. However upon arrival we were able to check in in a matter of moments! those of you who travel on business know how important this is! The room is typical of a nice beach resort and well appointed and comfortable. Even though the hotel features a fantastic pool area, is directly on the ocean, has a great beach bar and inside bar and restaurant, features a wine tasting daily and much more! the main attraction is the staff- I was going to mention a few standouts here but I would not want to miss anyone! also i would like to say the grounds are immaculately kept . We will definitely be booking this property for each trip to Miami Beach and will seek out Kimpton properties on other business and personal trips- great job !

I just returned from a fabulous vacation with my daughter and friends. Cannot say enough about this charming hotel, nestled in the center of downtown South Beach! The staff was extremely welcoming, helpful every step of the way, and so very thoughtful. The restaurant was good, and the pool, staff and beach were exemplary!

Thanks again to the wonderful staff at the the Surfcomber--we will be sure to stay at your wonderful establishment any time we visit Miami!

This place is awesome! The location is great (just down the street from the Lincoln Rd Mall & within walking distances of a lot of what South Beach has to offer). The beachfront property is beautiful & modern and extremely well-maintained. From the time my husband and I checked in to the time that we checked out, the whole staff treated us like we were VIP guests. The staff was always willing to lend a helping hand & gave great restaurant suggestions. When we were checking out, we happened to mention that we were going to drive down to Key West and the staff gave us great suggestions of things to do and see. Shouts out to Kenneth, Dorgis, and Luz! You all were the bomb.com! And a glass of prosecco to welcome us as we checked in? Yes, please. This is my second time staying at a Kimpton hotel, and they never disappoint. (Become a Kimpton InTouch member! It's free & you get some additional fun goodies) Thank you so much for a great 3-night stay. :)

I can't say any more amazing things about my experience at this hotel. WONDERFUL STAFF! Great location right by the beach! I can't emphasize how amazing each staff member that we encountered was. Special thanks to the following people who were AMAZING. Kenneth, Foxy!
