“5 STAR ALL AROUND - A MUST STAY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

The perfect ending to a wonderful vacation. From Ocho Rios Jamaica and the Cayman Islands we wanted to stay in South Beach. From the moment we walked through the doors we were greeted with complete hospitality. Joseph checked us in and offered us so many options to make us comfortable while we awaited check in. Dale assisted us with our bags and was our right hand man during our entire stay. Dale definitely kept our spirits high and was so knowledgeable about our interests. He even went the extra mile and took the time out to research a few restaurants and clubs we wanted to try. The view from our room felt like we were still in the islands, we were directly arcross from the beach and right in the middle of everthing; SOUTH BEACH AT ITS FINEST. Telisa worked the front desk during our complimentary Happy Hour and she was so pleasant to speak with. The food was amazing and our overall stay here ended our Caribbean Vacaion with a Boom!! When you think South Beach you already assume you are gonna have spectacular views; to have a staff that genuinely ensures your stay is memorable and takes interest in your travels makes the ultimate traveling experience. Thanks Edgewater Team!!! WE GOT ENGAGED IN ROOM 301!! <3 Theatrice Thompson

Staff was very friendly, much more than the typical chain hotels. They offered suggestions to help. Valet with cash for $25 per day with unlimited in/out rather than trying to hunt down a street spot. Despite being a "studio," the room was very big and way more than enough for 2 people. Bathroom was modern and nice. Location is great and they will let you borrow towels and chairs for the nice beach across the street. White sand and blue/green water. No need for a pool. Plenty of delicious restaurants along Ocean Drive and bars/clubs are all within a 15 minute walk.

I have a lot of reasons to suggest this hotel: very good location ,you are directly in the hotspot,in the morning you can take the towel and within 2 minutes you are on the beach. The staff is very friendly and helpful.Thanks to Jonathan Cordoba because of his good suggestions to make our trip more beautiful.
If you compare this hotel with the other hotels in this location and category,you will not be dissapointed.
I was late to receive an oceanfront view room .Maybe you should make your reservation earlier in order to take the ocean front view.

Great hotel in a wonderful location. You are at the spot! Our room was big, clean and quite. The bed quality could be better because of the width. The roof terrace is quite nice for the breakfast and the happy hour. All of the staff have been always very friendly and supportive. All in all I can only recommend this hotel.

We were traveling through out Florida for the Spring Break with our 10-year-old son and were not actually planing to stay at Miami Beach since we had limited time to spend here and there. Once we arrived at South Beach we felt that we should spend at least one night there. Then I started to check the hotels from the internet and of course from Tripadvisor, but we already had a room reservation for Palm Beach that day, so I needed to find a hotel for the next night. I liked the reviews on Tripadvisor for Edgewater so I sent an e-mail to them asking for rate for the next night and asking them to call me. I was very happy to get a call from Martine just about in an hour, and the rate was good for us, I mentioned we have our kid with us and asked if it would be possible to arrange a bed for him too. Martine was so polite and helpful on the phone.

And when we checked-in everything was so smooth. Dale helped us to go to our room and he was so friendly. I believe all the staff at this hotel are doing their best to help the customers.

We enjoyed the happy hour at the terrace also the breakfast. They even had Nutella and my son was very very happy. I do not understand why people are complaining about breakfast or happy hour because these are complimentary. We also borrowed the beach chairs and towels for the beach they were all in good condition.

Also the room was in great shape. Also what we really loved was they already opened the sofa bed for us.

The bathroom was in good shape. So was the kitchenette.

We will definitely go back!! And tell all our friends to stay here if they are visiting Miami Beach.

The location is also unbeatable! But for most the staff!! Amazing people doing wonderful job. When we checked-out we also had a great experience, I am sorry to say I cannot recall the names of the staff who checked us in and out, but I also filled a survey while checking out and mentioned some names there to the management. This is important for me because we stayed at Hampton-inns and one Double Tree during this vacation and Edgewater experience beat them all!!

I hope next year to go back and stay at least 3-4 days and have more fun!

Hello just wanted to say how wonderful the Edgewater Hotel South Beach Miami was. Firstly position, position, position. Located in South Beach Miami Ocean Drive. You are in the heart of all the action. We were in a suite which had a king size bed and sofa bed in the lounge room. We also had a kitchen and dining room. Our balcony looked over the terrace. Free breakfast every morning on the terrace and free happy hour between 6-700pm. Staff were very friendly make sure you find DALE or as he calls himself chippendale. He is very helpful and will go that extra mile to help in anyway he can. We stayed for 3 nights but could of easily stayed longer. A day shopping in Lincoln mall is only a short walk. We did the Art Deco walking tour. A must. We also did the miami 1/2 day tour which was well worth it.

Great hotel in a great location. Rooms are lovely and the hotel has the feel of boutique. Parking is nightmarish but the hotel provides a valet service who will for a $30 fee/per night, take your car and park it for you (unlimited collections / drops) -worth it.

Complimentary breakfast was very basic and on an open top roof garden, but still, it was complimentary and there is no shortage of local alternatives.

I did have a minor billing issue on check out; charged incorrectly and billed for mini-bar options that were never used, but this was quickly refunded once I mentioned it.

Recommend this hotel? Yes.

Room Tip: Floor 3 will be the quietest; avoiding street noise and rooftop breakfast noise.
