“Amazing Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Here you go..you can add names etc..I can't remember anyones!

Stayed here for 5 nights in mid April & have been meaning to post this review since I arrived home. I was travelling to Miami with my fiance as part of his 30th Birthday celebrations & contacted the hotel prior to arriving. The staff went completely out of their way for me, decorating the room, giving us an upgrade on our original booking & a bottle of champagne on arrival..Can't thank them enough! A special thanks to Louis !!

The hotel staff are all amazing & went out of their way to make us feel valued & help with anything you need. The concierge John was fantastic, providing us with restaurant recommendations & making the reservations etc on our behalf, he listened to our likes/ dislikes and the recommendations he suggested were exactly as we had hoped. The hotel is one block from the beach & the luxury beach chairs and towel provided make the beach visit very relaxing!

I would most definitely recommend this hotel for your visit to Miami, right on the beach, close to Lincoln Drive and fantastic staff and accomodation!

Many thanks again to all the staff & look forward to seeing you again soon!

Amy and David

We stayed at The Hotel from the 26th-30th of April. The entire experience was great. The Atelier room was nice and roomy, and quiet. The staff from the time we arrived until we left was great! Daniel, one of the front desk guys at Ocean Drive building was super nice and gave us great recommendations for restaurants. Oh Mexico and Havana were mmm good! John and Esteban made reservations for us. The roof top pool/lounge was nice as well, as was the complimentary drinks.

The complimentary beach chairs and towels are a major plus as well.

The little cafe Pinnochio across the street is the perfect spot for a morning coffee/croissant or a pannini for lunch

All is all we had a very nice stay and would back again in a heatbeat!

Till we meet again!

We stayed here three days on our final leg of our trip to Florida from the UK. We were in the Ocean Drive part of the hotel, so we did have a bit if noise from the News Cafe but nothing major. We were happy with the room it had a lovely big bathroom. We weren't blessed with great weather on our trip which was a shame but we did manage a few sunny days in Miami. We stayed by the pool most days and were well looked after by Tiffany. The pool are is great and sun loungers very comfy and easy to move around.

We found Ocean Drive quite noisy at night and slightly tacky so gave the bars a miss, choosing to dine at The Betsy one night (amazing popovers and fab cocktails), Smith and Wolenski and Catch restaurants, all great but pricey.

The beach is great but due to the mixed weather we didn't spend a great deal of time on it. We had a few walks along the boardwalk each morning, when the weather was at its best and admired all the swanky hotels and Art Deco buildings. There's also some great shops on Collins Avenue.

All in all we enjoyed our stay in a very central location and may return to South Beach one day.

Amazing rooftop pool, great location 1 block off the strip, quiet beautifully decorated rooms, exceedingly helpful and courteous staff, clean premises, awesome pool bar, free beach chairs and a great nightly rate...The Hotel was an amazing quick getaway! We will definitely return!

Room Tip: Corner room on the 3rd floor was very quiet and a bit bigger (though it had no real view)

My friend and I came to Miami for a 5 day getaway. As much as we wanted to enjoy the nightlife, we also wanted the option to relax when we wanted so we figured staying a block from Ocean Drive would allow us to easily do both. Coming to this hotel was the best decision we made. This was the perfect spot for us to walk to all the bars on Ocean Drive and was removed enough from the strip that we didn't have to hear the booming music when we came back to sleep.

Upon arrival, the bellman took our bags with a smile and said, "Now you are here to relax!" He was right. The beach is just 1 block away-- SO convenient, plus the hotel guarantees 2 luxury lounge chairs each day until 6pm. We definitely took advantage of this every day! On the 1 block walk to the beach you pass a few swimwear stores, a couple of bar/restaurants and Pinocchio, our favorite place to stop and grab a sandwich and an italian coffee to take with us to the beach.

Our favorite fixture of the hotel was Esteban, the concierge. He was genuinely friendly and honest with his opinions. We asked for his recommendations on where to get dinner and he steered us away from the strip and to Espanola Way. We ate at Havana, a Cuban restaurant, Fez, a Moroccan restaurant and Nuvo, a seafood restaurant. All of these were his top choices and all were great. He warned us of the tourist traps on Ocean, recommending only 1 restaurant there, the Pelican. He was too right. Besides at the Pelican, the restaurants on Ocean have terribly slow and extremely unfriendly service.

We rave about this hotel and will 100% come back here if we return to Miami. We have also highly recommended to friends and family.

Stayed here in July...nice hotel, excellent location. I had a room in the Atlier which is the newer side that sits on Ocean Drive. It's right across the street from Wet Willies and directly above The News Cafe which is cheap and delicious (unlike any resturant on Sobe). The hotel is in the perfect location. They have a sweet roof top pool with decent drinks. Customer service was good. The rooms were average. They were clean and comfortable; but I believe you pay for the location itself. I would problably return if I got a good deal :)

We had a wonderful visit to Miami and we highly recommend The Hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and the room was excellent. We were within walking distance to the beach, resteraunts and the marina. Our room was facing Collins, so there was some street noise, but we consider it part of the ambiance of being in Miami.
