Once you get here, you are able to walk to everything South Beach has to offer. The front porch is a great people watching spot and is especially nice compared to all the other hotels on the strip because there is no bar or restaurant that gets in the way of the view. The rooftop areas are a nice quiet place to relax. The one bedroom suite is perfect for two - I would not want to share with more people.

Room Tip: Even though it costs $25 to get chairs and umbrella for the beach, it is well worth the price.

Hilton Grand Vacation Club South Beach is the place to be in South Beach. It is across from the beach, close to public parking, walking distance from Lincoln Mall and the groovy restaurants. The rooms have full kitchens. There is a hot tub and laundry on site.

We stayed here me n my girlfriends for a party tgat took place in this hotel, everything was great, the check in, the room, the hallways n rooms were very clean, except when we were leaving we went to the breakfast area but the staff were not professional, they treated us like we were there to beg for food, which was a big disappointment, we already had coupons n some of us paid for it.
Other than this everything was okay

No restaurant, no pool, no self parking. Valet- $35 a night.. Rooms were nice, location was great, but very hustle-bustle. Reminded me of the New York property. If you are looking for family friendly- don't recommend. If you are looking to party, this is your place! Staff was friendly. Very accommodating...

Please keep in mind that this is a historic urban property, and does not have the amenities one may expect. However, we are happy you enjoyed your stay, and we hope to see you again in the future.

We really enjoy staying at these Art Deco style buildings. The rooms are modern in spite of this architecture. The location to the beach, restaurants and shopping is awesome. You can walk anywhere. Take the art deco tour starting at the art deco center on Ocean Blvd. Make sure you get to Lincoln Street. The only disappointment was the cost of parking and the fact that the valet staff seemed to 'use' our car for some joy rides or side trips.

Just celebrated 60th birthday and 35th wedding anniversary at the HGVC South Beach resort and had a wonderful time! Easy walk to the beach and thru the hotel you can rent lounge chairs & umbrellas so you can relax & enjoy. You are in the heart of the action so you can enjoy the nightlife if you desire. There are numerous restaurant options available, my only caution is to be very specific & do NOT order the specialty drinks unless you are quoted the price up front. We found several of the Ocean Drive restaurants really rip you off for those "big" drinks to the tune of $29 and even $55 for ONE drink at one place! Other than that we LOVED our trip & the HGVC South Beach resort is someplace we highly recommend.
