Perfect stay! Clean rooms and great location. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The lounge down stairs was very relaxing and had great live jazz and excellent service from adorable Iris. Gili was super accommodating even after we checked out. I'll be back again! Thank you all so much!

I've vacationed in South Beach a number of times and The Gale South Beach by far is the best hotel I've stayed in. The room was clean and the service was exceptional. The location puts you in walking distance to shopping, fine dining, and the beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting South Beach.

The hotel was very nice on the inside, and it looked just like the pictures online.
When you first arrive, the valet parking is in the back of the hotel (James Ave), which is by the lounge bar called The Regent. The staff from the lobby, valets, diner, and the house maids are very friendly, courteous, and very helpful.
The only problems are the following:
Expect to pay more than just the hotel booking. They charge $25.00 per day that includes the wi-fi, the lounge chairs, and the $15 discount on their food and beverage. There's no complimentary breakfast, so you will always be eating out. The restaurant is very pricey, and even though they give you a credit of $15, they will charge you 18% gratuity on your check, so I don't know if the credit is worth it. Also, they will charge you valet parking $35 per night. And you will be charged tax on those fees!
You get the lounge chairs from their sister hotel, but you have to walk at least a block away to the hotel, so again, that may not be worth it as well. The wi-fi is free DAILY. It's free every 24 hours per day, and up to 3 devices.
I got a double standard room, and it looked just like the online pictures. The room was small, but the beds are very comfortable. A little shocker was that the shower is see-through, no curtains, but I don't know if they will bring a cover upon request. The bathroom area has no doors except for where the toilet is located. So when you walk in your room, the first thing is the bathroom. There isn't much storage space, and the closet is very small. And if you can avoid it, try not to get a room on the first/ lobby floor. It's where the lounge is located, and if you have young kids, you will hear the noise of people and the music. They also have a club in the basement, and you can hear the thumping from the music as well.
The roof-top pool wasn't a wow factor, but being on the roof was nice. You were able to see much of Collins Ave.
The location is perfect. It's a block away from Lincoln Rd where all the shops and restaurants are, and right across the street from the beach.
Overall, for the short time we stayed there, it was okay.

Room Tip: Don't get the rooms on the first/ lobby floor, unless you plan on going to the lounge and club e...

I didn't even stay at the Gale South Beach when I was there last, however I visited their bar one night and accidentally left my card behind. When I went searching for it the next day, I was initially told that it wasn't in lost in found, and I couldn't go back to the bar to ask/look for it as they were doing a photoshoot in there at the time. The Head Concierge, Gili, went above and beyond to call around, look in additional places, and took me back to the bar to interrupt the photoshoot to ask if my card was in there. And it was! Glad I could count on GIli to get what I needed before I rushed off for my flight back home. Great service and staff, cute hotel, and will definitely stay there next time!

Just back from a trip to Florida where my husband and I spent 2 nights in Miami at The Galeas part of our travels. The hotel is lovely & in a great location on Collins Avenue just 1 block from Oceans Drive! The rooftop pool was amazing and never too busy and the restaurant Dolce served the most delicious pizzas. I had read reviews which suggested the rooms were small and box like but I was pleasantly surprised with our room - especially as our stay was short so we did not really need wardrobe space to unpack! Also the bed is soooooo comfy!! All in all I would definitely visit the Gale again! :)

Gale Hotel is a hidden gem! The rates are incredible for the location and the luxury this hotel offers. Gili was incredibly helpful and followed up consistently to make sure everything was ok. I have no complaints at all, and I am picky. Room was squeaky clean, and service was top notch. Location couldn't be any better. Just a few steps from the beach, and a short walk from Lincoln road, night life, and the Fillmore. I will definitely be staying here again.
