My wife, 10 month old son and I recently had a wonderful weekend at the Westgate South Miami Beach. Our expectations were low as we read previous reviews but we were pleasantly surprised as how nice the room and service was all weekend. Not a five star resort but a serviceable hotel room right on South Miami Beach.
We thank the Trip Advisor reviewers for the parking tips. The hotel did offer daily parking for $6 + tax in a lot next door.
With a 10 month old we requested ahead of time a children's bed and highchair. The front desk promptly brought them upstairs upon arrival. The maids were very sweet to our son but more importantly, they did a great job with servicing our room in a timely manner.
Our room was clean and updated recently. The kitchen was very handy for our son's meals. Our third floor room had a view of the ocean. The boardwalk out back lead to the Lincoln Road Mall and Ocean Drive to the south. Great people and building watching.
Although too cool to swim in the clean, small pool in the back, there was a relaxing playground/garden area behind it that was nice and peaceful with chairs and hammocks to sun in.
Overall, a nice, simple place to go for a long weekend.
Oh yea, the pictures in the hallway were special, especially the ones with Arnold.More
