Reviewed 21 August 2014

Stayed there with 5 gfs for 3 nights, we booked for two rooms and upon arrival we were greeted warmly at the reception. We asked for two rooms close to each other and it was done within minutes and with a smile, we had help carrying all luggage to our rooms since the building we stayed at didn't have elevators but it was not a concern.
Rooms were bright and decent size, clean and modern washrooms, free beach towels are your disposal, swimming pool, a restaurant and two bars.
The staffs were all very nice and it was close to Collins and major streets, shopping, restaurants and the beach. A great place to stay at in Miami!

an experienced world traveller who avoids corporate like hotels or the usual big hotel groups.i.e marriott or hilton.
the pestana was excellent in so many facets.great location,welcoming,incredibly clean,nice pool and rooms for the art deco hotel.management were great and special mention to the restaurant/bar staffer Endri.The hotel is very fortunate to have him.hospitality is second nature to him.i am a single dad with a teenager daughter and they treated her like a vip.

Room Tip: no tip other than it is highly recommended.

If you want to stay in SoBe, want an Art Deco hotel, great location and quiet haven to sleep in without breaking the bank, Pestana is ideal. Hotel is still less than 2years old, super clean with spacious rooms (for the beach). I love James Ave--Collins and lincoln are right there, but this street is quiet, peaceful, and worlds away.

Staff does go out of its way for you, service at the bar is a bit slow (welcome to Miami time!) but the drinks are great! Try a mojito!

Things to know if you're coming to SoBe or staying here: ditch the car. You wont need it as everything is nearby and you have cabs and rental bikes as an option. Also, parking everywhere on the beach and this area in particular is a nightmare and expensive. Uber also just came to Miami!

Hotel has a 2br suite type room that is great for 6 people traveling together but beware that the back building has no elevator so if stairs are an issue, skip this building. As an example, my older parents would not have been able to handle all the stairs for this room type. The 2BR itself has stairs as well as its comprised of a LR area with a bath downstairs (sofa converts), then 2BR upstairs, one with 2 twin beds and the other with king and ensuite bath. The second bedroom shares the bath downstairs. The room also has 2 balconies and a huge sundeck off the 2nd room upstairs.

This hotel within walking distance of Ocean Drive is the perfect hide-away when visiting Miami Beach. It consists of three Art Deco buildings around a swimming pool that can sometimes be a bit noisy in the day. The rooms are clean and large and have excellent wifi coverage. We had a room that was fitted for disabled persons, the downside being that you could not shower without flooding the bathroom. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is no free parking space in the area. The hotel has a valet parking service that works just fine but is expensive at 30 dollar/24 hours.

Recent reviews that all mention the friendly and helpful staff are spot on. The hotel is kept very clean and tidy - all day. The free wifi is fast. Make sure you look out for happy-hour in the bar and try one of the many cocktails or ice-cold beers.

The Pestana is within easy walking distance of the beach, the Lincoln Road Mall, and the restaurants on Washington Avenue. Try the Ocean Deli around the corner at 20th and Liberty Avenue, and the Deco Bike hire on 17th Street near the beach.

For breakfast, we'd suggest not having it in the hotel every day of your stay, try the many choices nearby.

The Pestana's a relatively small hotel and we chose it because it looked like it would be more fun than the larger hotels in Miami Beach - we chose well ! Enjoy !
