“Perfect location across from Beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

I stayed here for a girls trip with 3 of my girlfriends (all in our early 30's). The hotel is conveniently located on Ocean Drive. A QUIET area away from the chaos so you are also able to sleep at night, if you choose. Its also located directly across the street from the beach and the hotel provides towels and chairs. Its a nice, clean and modern boutique hotel. I have recommended this hotel to anyone staying in South Beach who doesn't want the mega hotel experience like that of the FontaineBleau.

Upon arrival of my cruise ship to Miami, my wife and I chose the Edgewater hotel for the rest of our honeymoon in South Beach. Although a minimal problem was experienced through no fault of the hotel or its staff, (which was exceptionally handled and resolved above my expectations,) I enjoyed my stay immensely. I definitely felt spoiled throughout my stay and would recommend this hotel to my closest friends and family. Definitely a diamond in the rough of Ocean Drive; and a bargain! In particular one employees interaction stood out the most; Dale enhanced my service each time we crossed paths with delightful conversation which added a friendly feel to my stay. I look back and would say it was definitely a Vip experience. 5 stars guys. Also thank you George for your genuine concern in response to the complication, attitude is everything these days.

Jonathan and Joseph were excellent at the front desk. I couldn't ask for friendlier service. The hotel had beach towels and chairs to take out to the beach which was nice. Also the location of the hotel was right in the heart of south beach. There is so much to do in Miami i felt like Edgewater is right there in the middle of it all.

We are definitely in the middle of it all, Joe. Our guests quite enjoy being close to the party area of South Beach but far enough to enjoy a good night's sleep.
We know South Beach offers many options in hotels, thank you for choosing us!

We spent one night at the Edgewater South Beach which compares very favorably with another well-known hotel in Miami South Beach which we also visited during this stay.
The hotel is very well located on Ocean Drive only a 2 minute walk from the beach, and the hotel offers you free towels and chairs for the beach. We had a wonderful room with a balcony and direct sea view, and the room was very large and comfortable - in fact twice as big as the other room where we stayed that week. Breakfast was served on a large terrace on the 5th floor also with a view of the sea, and in the late afternoon, free drinks and snacks were served on the same terrace - nice touch!
There is wifi in all rooms, and it is very fast and reliable.
On the day of departure, we were allowed to use a shower room in the afternoon after our visit to the beach, with plenty of clean towels, before leaving for the airport.
The staff were all extremely helpful, friendly and service-minded.
The price of the room was around 400 US dollars for one night, also considerably cheaper than the other hotel at which we stayed.
We will definitely choose this hotel for our next visit to Miami! To be recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 5th floor with a balcony and direct sea view if you want the best!

Dear Fellini,

We are pleased to see how much you have enjoyed your stay with us, thank you for taking the time to provide such thorough feedback. We are quite competitively priced considering our smallest studio is twice the size of the average Ocean Drive hotel room.
We look forward to your return, happy travels.

This hotel is generally good but falls down on the details so we were left a bit disappointed. The roof terrace is nice but the white cushions on the chairs and loungers are filthy. The cushions were not removed inside at night so were sodden after an overnight rain storm during our stay. After that same rainstorm, no one came to wipe down the terrace tables so the guests were doing that themselves to be able to eat breakfast there.
We booked an ocean view suite as we were travelling with our young daughter but when we arrived the sofa bed was not made up and we had to do that ourselves - once we got hold of a sheet which had not been supplied.
We also felt the bedding felt poor quality for the price paid for the stay.

Dear guest,

Please accept our apologies for not measuring up to your expectations. We do clean the cushions regularly but they might look somewhat stained at times as they are outdoors. As much as we do our best to remove them when it rains, during the night we have limited staffing and rain by the beach comes swiftly and unexpectedly.
We do prep the sofas upon request but quite often when we receive third party reservations these requests are not passed on to us and children are not listed on the reservations.
We hope to get the chance to show you that we do take pride in our looks and service, what you experienced is not the norm.
Thank you for having chosen Edgewater South Beach.

This is my go to hotel on south beach. It is minutes away from the water and your are right on the strip! The rooms are well equipped and clean. The staff is amazing. Special thanks to Jonathan for always greeting us with a smile and always looking out. Nothing is ever to much of a hastle for him. I have visited many hotels but whenever I'm in miami I don't stay anywhere else. The service is top notch, the rooms are comfortable and spacious, and your right across the street from the beach. What more can you ask for! Again thank you Jonathan for all you do for us! We will see you soon!

What more can I say except "Perfection"! We stayed two nights pre-cruise and then again 12 days later post cruise. To start the location was great, close enough to everything South Beach has to offer yet far enough away to have a quiet peaceful stay. The staff, absolutely more than you can ask for. Friendly, helpful, extremely "attention to detail" oriented. The breakfast was wonderful and the evening cocktail reception an added bonus. Very tastefully decorated rooms are modern yet elegant, very comfortable and very nice size. Beds are very comfortable and the pillows are to die for.
For all that read this, I would recommend this hotel to make your vacation extra special. No doubt we will back!
