Reviewed 10 June 2014

We recently stayed here for 2 nights. Since nobody likes a story here I'll keep it short :

Cons: No swimming pool, no vanity for the lady to get ready, no door on the shower, our 'private' balcony overlooked the very public patio where happy hour took place, crummy beach towels and lack of beach chairs for the daily resort fee & a skimpy breakfast that was served in the hallway near our room one morning.

Pros: LOCATION, walking distance to EVERYTHING, very friendly staff, awesome bed, decent price & oh yeah, the LOCATION is great.

I would stay here again but would like to try other hotels on south Beach to compare. Overall a decent stay

Room Tip: Skip the balcony

Esteemed guest,

Our thanks for the time you took to provide us with invaluable feedback. Looks like we haven't made the usual good impression during your stay, our apologies. We do have an upcoming soft renovation which will address many of our guests' suggestions such as the shower door, lighting in the rooms and bathrooms among many others.
Even though we do not have the beach setup with a third party offering lounge chairs and umbrellas, we do offer high end beach chairs at our reception (included in our resort fee). The beach towels are laundered in house and replaced as soon as they show signs of wear.
We hope that you will give us another try once our renovation is complete by year end.

We booked a room at the last minute from the airport at a discounted rate and we're completely happy with everything about the hotel from the room, to the location to the service which was outstanding! All staff were very friendly striking up conversation whenever they saw us. Unfortunately we didn't eat at the restaurant or have the complimentary breakfast as we were only there one night and somewhat rushed, but I would highly recommend this hotel as it met all our needs and the location was great, still on ocean drive but at the quieter end (we have previously stayed further south on ocean which was rather noisy) and close to Lincoln mall about 10-15min walk.
We loved it!

After lunch in South Beach, we decided to stay the day. Edgewater met our needs, convenient and reasonably priced. Dale, a staff member of the hotel, made the experience very pleasant. He was attentive, friendly, and happy to meet the needs of the guest. I would stay here again.

This hotel has a perfect location. its not in the absloute center of partying. i loved this coz i felt i can go home and relax after a long night or day. rather than having the party go all night next block. the hotel is sooo clean and friendly.
Extremely friendly staff. when there was a small mistake with my reservation the made it up to me in ways i didnt even expect. the staff always greets you with the smile. they are all young and cool..

we switched our room to an ocean view. since we wanted to leave way before check out . i asked them to transfer the bags for us while we were out.

i was absloutly speachless when i found out they even moved the sandwiches from fridge to fridge. and he even took the charger i forgot plugged next to my old room bed and plugged it in next to the new room bed..


It is more than a hotel . i would never stay anyplace else in miami..


sure you might think you can get a better deal or a better location. but as for me i am soooo happy with this hotel i dont even wanna try any others there.

Room Tip: make your reservation immediately and dont think twice. :)

The Edgewater was the perfect place for a quick three day trip. Great location, great views and a friendly staff. Don't miss breakfast and happy hour on the roof. Wake up early for a walk along Miami Beach - all to yourself. Also highly recommend renting a Segway!

Stayed a couple on nights with family. Great location if you want to hang out right on Ocean Beach and you are with friends. A bit noisy and darker the first room we got it. We ask for a better one and we were given the following day. Check other reviews for more tips on which rooms are better.

Room Tip: Definitelly front beach and on third floor...

The hotel is beautiful and conveniently just steps from the beach. Jonathan and Edward were phenomenal! It was our first trip to Miami and they were so very helpful in providing directions and information about the area. The complimentary breakfast and happy hour were icing on the cake. We can't wait to come back!
