“A peaceful paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

I almost don't want to write this review because the savoy is quite small and I don't want it to get too crowded. However, in respect to the owners and staff I feel that I must praise the experience that we have enjoyed in South Beach over the last week.

The location of the Savoy is the first item to note. It is at the quiet end of Ocean Drive but within easy walk of the mad scene further up or on Collins if that is what you want. It is also the only hotel that has direct access to the beautiful beach through a private gate. The area of the two pools is comfortable and attractive and food and bar service there is first rate. It is normally quiet but if the noise level goes up when there are groups at weekends, one can retreat to the beach for a serene scene.

The art deco buildings have been well refurbished recently. The staff are welcoming and helpful at all times. Our Ocean view suite was spacious, comfortable, well equipped and clean. Food in the restaurant is limited in range but good. The cocktails at the bar are excellent and happy hour a delight. The Italian restaurant across the road gives an easy extension to the hotel's own menu with perfectly pastas and reasonable wine. Every variety of food is within easy reach.

This trip was mostly work but we will be back nwxt year for pure pleasure.

Room Tip: It costs a little more but a high floor (third is the highest) suite with ocean view is the best. F...

The Savoy is an oasis in the midst of Miami Beach. Our suite was very clean and right on the beach. Although we were right on Ocean Drive, it was quiet because we were in SoFi. The hotel provided beach umbrellas and chairs for us. They even had a sand pit for the babies. The pools were beautiful and warm. The only problem was that our keys didn't always work, even after we replaced one of them.

We just returned from a four day stay at the Savoy Hotel. Within hours, we felt transported and refreshed.

The Savoy is a quiet oasis in the middle of exciting South Beach, affording its guests a taste of both the serenity and relaxation of its beautiful beach & tranquil courtyard with 2 swimming pools, and the bustling excitement of South Beach's shops, restaurants and people watching. The Savoy rooms are spacious suites and the staff couldn't be more warm & welcoming. They make you feel like family -- in the best sense. Gary , the manager, has crafted a gem. Shhh, don't let the word out!

The Savoy Hotel couldn't have been more perfect for our short but fabulous South Beach getaway! Great access to the beach, beautiful pool area (extremely attentive and pleasant pool staff), perfectly comfortable and nicely decorated room, very helpful front desk personnel, and the best location in South Beach. It felt like an oasis in the South Beach chaos yet we could be in the middle of the excitement within moments when we chose to do so. Can't imagine a better place to stay. Thank you Savoy!

The pool is really nice, as is the service (Rocky). The location cannot be much better. On the beach, very close to art deco. Lots of nice restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast was very good.

First, let me warn you that this is an old hotel. Nicely kept up, but if you are looking for Miami Beach modern with travertine and marble, this isn't it. Given the salt air and daily wear and tear of a well used hotel, maintenance undoubtedly works overtime to keep everything ship-shape. Bathrooms and kitchenettes are serviceable and clean, but not fancy.

We had a one-bedroom ocean view with three balconies (all of which came in handy). Small dining, kitchenette and bath. With some rearranging, we managed to fit in an extra roll-away bed for my daughter while my son used the sofa-bed. There are some rooms that connect to an extra bedroom and in the future I would probably do that just to get some extra space.

As others have noted, what this hotel has is "location, location, location". It simply can't be beat => on the South end beyond the "zoo" of Ocean Ave (we were there on Easter Weekend) and with its own entrance to the beach. Within a block, you are in the middle of the SoBe action, but then you get to leave it and come back to peace. Pool area is nice and there is a little cafe off it.

What the other reviews don't always say is how helpful the staff is - nothing fake about it - these are people just working for a living, but genuinely helpful. From the maid service who set up the extra beds, to the valet who always got our car in record time even in Ocean Ave. traffic and the front desk who helped in multiple ways with reprogramming keys and printing tickets for us, we had good experiences.

Great clean hotel with nice pool area and the beach is just next door...

When we first arrived 55 minutes before check in we couldn't get our room, and the lady in the reception didn't contact us the hour I more or less spend walking around the lobby.
Then I approached a guy just getting in for his shift and the room was all ready.. Have a feeling she just didn't want us to get the room before 4 PM... It felt like that - otherwise she could at least have told us it was ready when it was.

She also told me the trip they promote (bus+boat tour of Miami) was 4 hours, so we booked... Oh well, it was 7 hours! Had we known we wouldn't have gone, but hard to cancel midway on the tour.

Don't expect much for the breakfast ... except high prices.

Those things said, it's a nice spot...

Dear KennethDK,

Thank you for being our guest recently! We sincerely apologize if there was a miscommunication in letting you know that your room was ready. I can assure you it was not intentional and most likely, just an error. We always allow guests to check-in early if their room is ready.

Secondly, we apologize if your tour lasted longer than advertised. Although we recommend certain tours, they are an outside company and can change their offerings at any time.

We would love to have you return as our guest once again!

Yours in Hospitality,
Francine - Director of Sales & Marketing
