“Hidden gem in a great location!”
Reviewed 2 March 2013 via mobile

The Ithaca is a nice boutique hotel in a perfect location in South Beach. My husband and i stayed for one night to see a Heat game. The arena was a short 10 minute drive. There is tons of great shopping and restaurants all within walking distance. The rooms are spacious and have a really nice modern decor. The best part of all was the service! Dion greeted us at check in with complimentary champagne, he walked us to our room and explained everything in the room. Oh, and you seriously cant best the price! We will definitely be back!

Loved Ithaca hotel! The hotel is nicely decorated, it is well located near the beach and shopping places and it has the best personnel. Everyone truly wanted to make us feel welcome and made our stay the best possible.

The only bad thing was that some of the rooms located nearby the lobby have sound proof issues. Despite this, the hotel is a true gem in Miami Beach.

Room Tip: Try to get a room not in the lobby area.

The Ithaca is a perfect spot for a weekend getaway or longer vacation. It's on Collins Ave, right in the heart of South Beach. Our room, with two queen beds, was immaculately clean and decorated in funky art deco decor. The beds were comfortable. There is a small refrigerator stocked with beverages and snacks which are available for purchase. A safe is available in the room for valuables. There is also free Wi-Fi.

The Ithaca is located above a store front, and our room was directly on Collins Ave but we found it to be quiet; street noise was not a problem, nor was hallway noise. Entering the hotel on street level, there are both stairs and a small elevator to the second-floor lobby. Valet parking is available for a fee. We took advantage of this and it worked out perfectly for us. There is a light continental breakfast to get you going in the morning with many restaurants only steps away for those who would like something more hearty.

The staff was friendly and helpful--thank you Carlos for helping my elderly mom in the elevator--your cheerful kindness is much appreciated. We would most definitely stay here again!

We have just ended a 2 night stay at the Ithaca and can safely say it will be our 1st choice for accommodation on any future visits to Miami! The staff were friendly and helpful and we were most impressed by the standard of our room-and the hidden extras!! If you want a large scale breakfast then plan on going elsewhere as the continental breakfast is basic but suffice; the hotel offers valet parking but you must wait a few minutes for your car-but it is good value for money.The Ithaca is fairly small but has the perfect mix of hotel and B&B-the high standards of a hotel with the intimacy and friendliness of a Bed and Breakfast all mixed with the Art Deco style of this area in South Beach! A 'must stay' in our opinion; enjoy your stay!

Perfectly located just a stone's from the beach but one block back from the lively Ocean Drive, it is easy to miss the entrance to Ithaca tucked in next to a tourist shop between 5th and 6th Collins Avenue. However, despite the central location we found Ithaca to be a chilled and relaxing place to get away from the constant buzz of South Beach.

From the first minute until the last everything about Ithaca was perfection and class. Ithaca has a trendy boutique feel about it which I expect is hard to find among the established scene of famous Art Deco hotels on Ocean Drive. The common areas have a spa like feel (and smell!) to them while our room was incredibly spacious, immaculately clean and loaded with the latest technology such as iPod docking alarm clock and google tv.

The staff were attentive, polite and more than happy to help with tours, places to eat and whatever else you wanted to know. Throw in the bonus of a help yourself complimentary continental breakfast and evening drinks and it is impossible to fault the set up here.

I was initially a little nervous that the taxi company hadn't heard of Ithaca but I expect it will not be long before the understated brilliance of this little hotel gets the public profile it deserves.

If you want to be based in the heart of South Beach without the craziness of Ocean Drive, the Ithaca is quite simply a "no-brainer"!

My wife and I really enjoyed our recent stay here. The hotel is cozy (read: small), but this is actually what we were looking for... a nice, clean room close to South Beach... but not kept up all night by other guests or the action on the street. The rooms are very clean and modern... opened less than a year ago. Both staff members we talked to (the owner and the night clerk) were both extremely helpful, personable and had good recommendations about the area.

The room itself was very nice, GoogleTV... nice champagne for our anniversary, tasteful decorations, comfortable bed and linens. No allergy issues (which is frequently an issue for both of us and was a concern steering us away from older hotels in the area.)

As another review (in spanish) notes, the breakfast area is very small. I would recommend taking a tray back to your room or eating at one of the the very good nearby establishments.

Overall, we got exactly what we expected out of our stay in South Beach... a clean, romantic room at a reasonable price located 1 block from South Beach / Ocean Drive.
