Ithaca of South Beach Hotel
Ranked #1 of 27 Miami Beach B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2013

Ithaca of South Beach is quite a unique hotel that is clean and has a very modern feel to it. The staff are very helpful to ensure that you have a great stay. They serve you champagne upon arrival and also have complimentary breakfast in the morning. The location is also very good because it is only one block away from the beach. I would certainly recommend Ithaca of South Beach.

Three of us spent two nights here in a room with two queen beds.

The hotel is fabulously located close to the beach and to the Lincoln St shopping mall (only 20min walk) and to the famous cafe strip along Ocean Boulevard.

The room, to our suprise, was huge! The bathroom very clean with a large shower head and lovely bathrobes and towels.

The decor was very tasteful and relaxing.

Can't complain about any noise, even with the proximity to the bars, etc.

What was above and beyond was the service - the hotel managers sat you down and tried to assist you with your stay to make sure you got what you wanted out of your stay in Miami Beach.

Compared to other hotels (many of which were more expensive) in the area, you got better amenities, value for money and service.

Overall an amazing experience - highly recommended.

As you walk up the stairs to the hotel (there is an elevator), greeted by a nice fragrance and a very warm lobby. Checking into the hotel was a sit down experience by a friendly gentlemen (he'll tell you his story). Our room wasn't ready so we left our belongings to eat lunch. Upon our return, the room was ready. WOW! Big, spacious, and comfortable for 3 people. A glass of champagne as a welcome to Ithaca.

Beds are comfy, European continental breakfast, and in between 6PM to 7PM a hotel happy hour wine, cheese & crackers, and strawberries.

Would I stay there again? Absolutely, I think it would be romantic for two but sad to say I was there with family.

Booked this hotel on a deal but after staying there would have happily paid full price. From the moment you step in the font door, you enter a beautiful boutique hotel environment. The rooms were stylish and very clean and there's lots of little extras that come in with the room. Tea and coffe are free from the 'breakfast' area and the google TV was a great find! Cheese and wine hour at 6.30pm was lovely, as was the welcome champagne! Location wise, although its not right on the seafront, it's only a minute walk a way and that shields you from the mayhem! I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to South Beach and hope to stay again before we head back to the UK.

It wasn't so easy to find this place but after asking som locals we found it. There is valet parking, just ask the receptionist upstairs. We were one couple and two friends who stayed one night on our drive back to Orlando. The rooms were spacious, modern and beautiful. Very helpful staff at all time. The location of the hotel was perfect with just one block away from Ocean Drive and the beach. Only minus was the noise from the A/C. We tried to turn it off but with no luck. The hotel does have breakfast but we choose to sleep in instead.

But we will definitely come back for more nights :)

Room Tip: Ask the staff how to turn off the A/C if the noise is too loud

We absolutely loved our stay in Ithaca of South Beach!
The location is perfect on Collins avenue, about 20 seconds walk from Ocean Drive and right next to the beautiful beach of South Beach

The staff is SO helpful! Thanks again Dion for your help and tips! Thank you Polish girl at the reception, your smile was always appreciated!

No worries about parking, there is a valet service with an extra of 25 dollars a day, but really, you will want to do this rather than parking elsewhere!

The rooms are modern, stylish and obviously recent.

Everyday at six the hotel offers cheese and wine!

Breakfast is served at 8 in an intimate place, lovely! You can also take it in your roon if you like.

To sum up, we WILL go to this hotel again, it's perfect!

If you are looking to stay in the middle of the action of South Beach Miami close to Oceand drive, but not in a huge and touristic hotel, this is the place to be. Only 11 rooms, ideal for romantic couples, friends or small families. So the location is certainly a PLUS. The staff is very helpfull and enthousiast. We got two glasses champagne upon arrival. We had the room 101, also scared because of the reviews about the noise. Let me tell you this, the staff reads the reviews and do everything about it to make their hotel a better hotel. So when we were concerned about the noice, they told us that they read the review and now there are little notes to ask the people to be silent in the hall and during breakfast. Anyway we loved the room 101 and slept like babies. No noise from inside the hotel and not even from the streets.
ABOUT THE ROOM: how romantic,lovely and nice is the interior? We loved it!
On of our favourite moments of the day: from 6 to 7 pm we got wine,cheese,strawberries... The hotel DOESNT have to do this, but they did and I think it's a great concept.
We didnt expect to have any breakfast, but we got a nice continental breakfast every morning.
It was nice even to meet some people of the hotel and share travelling experiences during these two moments in the day.

Big thank you to the staff: very helpfull. They try everything to please the guests. If you have a question or problem,they will help you

Extra's:
- You can keep the 'SUPER SOFT' slippers ;)
- Champagne upon arrival
- Beach umbrella and towels provided
- Continental breakfast and wine/cheese reception
- Very good working WIFI
- COMFORTABLE BEDS
- Amazing shower
- Amazing location

TIP:
Use the valet service! Miami is not easy to find a good place and even so you have to pay A LOT. The valet service is 25 dollars a day. That is a very good price.
And leave the car there, only if you need to go downtown or somewhere far away.
You dont need a car in south beach: TAKE A WALK or TAKE A BIKE! You'll enjoy everything so much more

Only thing: We think there should be a 'real' reception. The poor staff is sitting in a small room, a little bit hidden away. If they should open the window of the small reception, you can speak to the staff directly through that window, and not the door. I think it's more enjoyable ( for staff and guests)
