“Worth It!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Dream for a six day vacation. We are very cautious travellers who look for cleanliness just as much as location and value.

Not the largest room we have stayed in but more than enough room for two people. I have seen some complaints about the rooms being far to dim and hard to see; it wasn't in my opinion and furthermore this is an Art Deco hotel so the dimness and soft lights are part of the ambience. Rooms are VERY CLEAN with NO BED BUGS!
ALL the staff we encountered were friendly, accommodating and did many things that made our trip more enjoyable. Location was great! It's a short walk to the beach, shopping and nightlife which surrounds the hotel.

Overall, great service, great location and great value for what we received.

The Dream was the perfect destination for my recent girls trip getaway. We were immediately greeted by the general manager and front desk staff with smiles and champagne. Every staff member at the Dream was professional, friendly, and hospitable. We received phenomenal customer service and the hotel itself is beautifully decorated and kept impeccably clean. I absolutely recommend the Dream South Beach and look forward to my next visit.

We stayed one night here and this place has a great vibe...modern, cool, right in the South Beach area so you can walk everywhere. My biggest issues with the place were the missing little touches you take for granted in other hotels.
The lighting was so bad that I could barely put makeup on. I balanced a compact between my knees so I could use the bedside spotlights that can be maneuvered toward your face. Otherwise the room is dimly lit by overhead spots....cool looking, but difficult to get ready to go out! I asked the hotel about it and they are looking at makeup mirrors, so at least they realized it was an issue.
Next was the lack of surface, especially in the bathroom...no where to set your kit, hair stuff, etc.
Last complaint is there is no coffee maker in the room! Ugh...that sucked in the morning.
Now for the cool parts! The bed had cool blue backlighting, and when you turn on the lights they slowly come up, which was a neat effect. The decor is simple and modern, and our bathroom had one of those doorless walking showers with plenty of room for two.
So if lighting, surfaces and coffee are not important to you, I would recommend this place! The rooftop pool was gorgeous also!

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms facing the street...it is noisy at all hours!

I would recommend the Dream South Beach hotel to anyone. Their customer service is world class and the hotel is beautiful. They upgraded me to the Presidential suite and it is absolutely mind blowing! Best hotel for the price and everything you need

Refreshing and perfect for an overnight getaway. I am a local Floridian. Overworked and tired I checked into the Dream to reflect,recharge and rest . As promised the Dream delivered their Trademark sexy and fun atmosphere ..Timothy In the bar was the Highlight .WONDERFUL personality in spite of being busy found time to have a great conversation with me..and surprised me with a pureed mango drink with redbull.as I don't drink alcohol..it was a great alternative Kudos for your kindness and great wit...I stayed in a small economy room and they found a way to design it very Miami and made details in an economy room seem like an upgrade ..rooftop Pool and lounges on the beach gave me the necessary Pop I needed to comeback home and go back to work (again )lol- Great experience --Loved the Dream...all the Staff was a four star treat to deal with EVERYONE was perfect ....and I thank you .

Room Tip: it is not a cookie cutter hotel room or design be open minded and soak it up ..

It was just the strangest, smallest, darkest room. And I'm from NYC so I'm used to small spaces but this was insane. No place to put our stuff either. Weird setup with bathroom & shower, we Luckily we were just using the room to crash a couple nights after a 30th birthday bash in Miami.

And I like trendy, but if only I could get some light to be able to put my makeup on straight.

On the plus - the front desk, service was wonderful. That and Location Location Location. Beautiful lobby, and the roof seemed awesome, but we didn't get to luxuriate up there do to mediocre weather.

Room Tip: Bring a flashlight
