“LOVED!”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

Great Staff, Great Room, Great location!!! Just left here and had the best birthday ever!!

That's pretty much all I needed to say but trip-advisor is forcing me to use 200 characters lol.

Key Bonuses: Walking distance to everything. Partying/Eating was easy to get to, along with the beach.

Cons: Only con I would say is that the walls are kind of thin so you can hear conversations, people walking etc. If you're a light sleeper I suggest sleeping with the AC/Fan on to muffle the noise.

We enjoyed our 4 day couples weekend. The rooms are compact, but personally, we enjoyed the lighting and ambiance. The location is so convenient and you can walk everywhere. It's only a block to the beach and the cabana staff was super nice and helpful setting up our beach chairs. We also enjoyed renting the deco-bikes for a nice ride down to the marina. It's not a cookie cutter hotel experience, and great for young at heart couples looking to try something a little different.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room at the back as recommended by other travelers.

I had a great 3 night stay. Other then valet being $34.00 plus tax its almost the same as a one day car rental. But you can find cheaper parking a block away. My wife and I enjoyed the blue lighting. It was perfect since we were celebrating our anniversary. Hands down service was the best the friendly bellman grabbed our bags immediately and were very helpful thru our entire stay. Wendy the concierge was superb, and very friendly. She took amazing care of us reserving the trendiest & most romantic places for us. Location just a few blocks from all the restaurants, beach and shopping area. We would love to stay at Dream once again.

We really liked the location of the hotel, 2 blocks from the beach was great. The beach staff who set us up with towels and umbrellas were key. We walked up and down ocean drive quite a bit but I'm glad this place is a block past. We weren't bothered at all by outside noise or traffic - the place also didn't seem very full for a weekend. The elevator was very slow but it's a historic building I guess. We took the stairs since we were on the 2nd floor and as someone else mentioned there was a strange smell in the stairwell. We read reviews beforehand so weren't surprised by the lighting or see through bathrooms but the room was small and the shower light and our iPod dock was broken, we couldn't turn the volume up. We thought it was maybe an intentional setting to keep from disturbing others until we heard our neighbor's music turned all the way up, though the paper thin wall. Also it was nearly impossible to open the shade (sorry, we like a little natural light) and there were some very strange-looking rips and tears on the shade. We did not dine at the Tudor house although it looks nice, we preferred to explore south beach and there is plenty of opportunity for that. We spent a lot of time on the rooftop and the pool is small but nice, the service up there was good and we were not shocked by our bar bill at checkout. There was an outside party with a DJ going on Saturday afternoon but the staff still did their best to check up on us and make sure we were accommodated. I cant speak directly to experience with the conceirge, my husband called before we arrived to see about restaurant recommendations, left a message but never heard back. They did however send us a complimentary bottle of prosecco to recognize my birthday, which was great! Definitely a place for couples there for the nightlife.

So this is an interesting hotel. Its a great choice for couples who are into the night life of South Beach. The room simply screams sex: from the condom box on the counter, to the intimate lighting, to the bottles of booze lining the tabletop. The paper thin walls allow for a sort of group lovemaking, with every sound seeping in from the hallways and adjacent rooms. The layout of the glass shower and glass toilet area being completely open to the rest of the room keeps a voyeuristic feel to the room as well. So yea...not for kids. Also, being so close to Ocean Drive also allows all the lovely drunk ramblings to easily come into the room at 2-3 AM. But you didn't come to South Beach to sleep did you? (If so, you might want to check out a different hotel)

The rest of the hotel was very solid. Yes, the elevator is slow, hot and the staircase is just as slow and hot with the addition of a strange smell. But the rooftop pool deck and bar make up for it. The valet (at $34 daily) was efficient enough but the concierge left some to be desired. I came down one evening to ask for a nice place for apps and drinks. He said nothing at first, then began typing, then a minute or two later asked if we liked Jazz. Just sort of odd. It was great having access to beach towels and chairs as well. Overall, a great experience. Thanks!

Room Tip: Ask for a room NOT on the streetside if you value quietness

The service was fantastic in terms of front desk, housecleaning, and doorman staff. In terms of the room, it was very modern. The room lighting was interesting. In other words, there were multiple buttons to fumble with to either dim, turn on, or turn off the lights. However the room was nice. The hotel is located a block away from the beach so it was very convenient. The beach staff (Nick) was very accommodating and knowledgeable. He added a lot of value to the hotel service and made our stay very pleasurable. Considering that we stayed for only three days, Nick familiarized himself with our names which was very making our experience very personal. The hotel is located near multiple restaurants and a lot of night life as well. The Tudor House is a restaurant that is part of the hotel. My boyfriend and I ate here for breakfast the service was great and so was the food!So if you are into partying, relaxing on the beach, and like a modern hotel this is definitely for you.
