“Wow! Words can't even express our experience. One of our best stays!”
Reviewed 16 September 2009

Where do I begin? We took a "SOBE Love Excursion" with another couple to wrap up our summer. My homie found a good rate on this hotel online, and we were not ready to experience the Angler. We really weren't. It surpassed any hotel experience we'd had as young BUPs! (Black Urban Professionals)

Okay, so we pull up and parking is limited, so we decided to do valet. They were really nice and efficient. On the outside of the hotel, it looks plain and small. You actually check in, when you get to your room. They bring your paperwork up. So we walk in, and the lobby looks small yet quaintly decorated. The front desk area is right by the elevators and it is a small area to maneuver. Our initial impression, was, $150 a night for this..whateva. Our attitude changed as soon as we walked into our room.

That room, that room!! It was huge with a chic modern upcale feel. It had a flatscreen tv with surround sound in the ceiling! The bed was huge and the overall feel and vibe of the room just made you feel classy! The wine glasses were a nice touch in the cabinet! We also had a patio that was nice. The bathroom was superb. Everything just surpassed any expectation we could have imagined. We couldn't believe how nice it was, and our couple friends couldn't either!

The service was great! Everyone was soo nice and helpful. If you needed ice, they brought it to your room. The continental breakfast was limited. The location of the hotel was PERFECT!!!!! It was like 2 blocks from the beach and Ocean Drive. Right in the heart of Sobe but still nooked away for quiet solitude. We ordered dinner and at it on our rooftop balcony. Nice!!!! We were able to walk everywhere!!!!! If we ever go back to Miami, we are definitely staying here! We were so impressed with the hotel that we created a new cocktail and name it "The Angler!". (plus we had to get rid of all the liquor we brought---lol)

The valet greeted me by my name and handed me some business cards with the hotel address and phone number and My name on it. Needless to say, he knew my name and this standard of services was provided throughout our stay.

The hotel was quiet and relexed and small, yet w/in walking distance to the beach. The restaurant was NYC quality but Miami prices and had a well-priced and excellently chosen wine list by the glass and bottle.

The pool, though small, did what it was supposed to do. Overall, terrific for couples and business travelers.

What can I say that hasn't been said before? This hotel is just brilliant!. Easy to find, centrally located on Miami beach, but in a quiet part. Everything in walking distance. Plush rooms, fantastic sound system, two flat screen tv's ipod docks, I could go on and on!

Just visit it if you are staying in Miami beach- you won't be disappointed

Chose Angler's in large part for its #1 rating on Tripadvisor. Happily, it lived up to high expectations.

Pros:

(1) Location - The hotel is 2 blocks from all of the action on Ocean. You are still in the thick of the action, but with less of the noise.

(2) Rooms - Hotel is adorable. Room was big, clean, and nice.

(3) Staff - The staff at the front desk are wonderful! We consulted with them practically every time we needed to make a decision regarding where to eat / what to do, and they enthusiastically gave us their recommendations. They were also very accommodating re. late check-out time.

(4) Value - we paid roughly $150/night. This is much cheaper than a lot of mediocre hotels in South Beach.

Cons:

(1) Pool - the pool is somewhat small. However, it's nice and not crowded. Plus, you are 2 blocks from the beach, so don't really need it all that much.

(2) No beach umbrellas/loungers - However, you do get a small discount on rental if you get a voucher from the front desk. You can simply give the beach attendant the voucher and the umbrella/loungers will be billed to your room. The front desk provides you with fresh towels and cold water for the beach.

(3) Parking - somewhat expensive. I think it was roughly $25/night. However, it's South Beach and I believe cheaper than a lot of other hotels in the area. We were able to find overnight street parking in the area.

All in all, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would definitely recommend to friends.

We were at the hotel for 4 days and enjoyed our stay extremely. The service was fantastic, all the staff went out of the way to make our stay enjoyable, we were upgraded to their villa, since they did not have a room which we had booked. Definitely have dinner one day at the hotel, especially when Giorgio (chef) does not have his off day, since his braised ribs are out of this world. Would definitely return to this hotel!!! Also visit Nemo and World Cafe for dinner.

I had originally chosen The Angler's as our hotel for our 1 week trip to SoBe, but at the last moment I changed it to The Palm Central Hotel right on Ocean Drive which meant right on the music, noise, people. Not the type of hotel we wanted since this was our last "honeymoon" trip before our baby arrives in Dec. So I called the Angler's the next day, they had a studio room available (more expensive than The Palm but peace &quite are worth it) and when we got there, 15 min later, it was no longer available...but Stephanie, the FOB, proposed that we stay in a deluxe 2 floor suite with private garden for the first night as a reasonable price & move to the studio room the next day.

We accepeted & boy are we glad we did !! We ended up staying in the suite all week at the price of the studio room !! We dined in their restaurant, the 660 (the short ribs are to die for), enjoyed their buffet breakfast (much cheaper & more delicious than breakfast at other places on Ocean Drive), and sunbathed in our private garden every morning. The staff was incredibly nice & efficient (Juan Carlos, the breakfast waiter is wonderful !!) and everyone made sure that anything we asked for was done.

It's location is 2 blocks away from the beach and Ocean Drive, near a lot of great restaurants plus you can take the bus to Lincoln Road just 2 min away from the hotel.

The only things we thought could be better was 1) the valet service, which took too long to bring the car (we were 30 min late to our restaurant one night because of it) & 2) the beach/parasol service should be free considering the price you pay for the room (that is something The Palms Central did offer). But I have to say, their beach bag is very stylish & they do provide you with great towels & water bottles.

We are definitely recommending this hotel to our friends. If you like trendy, hip, modern (no wall to wall carpet !!!) hotels that give great service without being overbearing, this hotel is for you. What we loved is the fact that SoBe is also for the 30+ crowd who enjoys fine dining, the beach, the shops...but is not willing to sleep in small, crowded, noisy rooms like waaaaayyyy back then !! We are not old, we just like comfort !! Thank you Angler's staff for making our 2nd honeymoon unforgattable !!

The Angler is only two blocks away from the famous South Beach so it has a prime location! Arriving at the hotel we had to park on the busy street out front of the hotel. The hotel parks and retrieves your car for you from a parking lot which is included in the cost of our hotel room package. The hotel has a small restaurant which you walk directly into from the front door. We ate there for lunch one day with several friends. None of us enjoyed our meal and the service was extremely slow. I do not recommend eating in the restaurant.

Our hotel room was directly off the courtyard for the hotel pool. The room is fantastic! The king bed was very comfortable. A large flat screen tv swivels so that you can watch it while sitting in the seating area or while lying in bed. The room also has surround sound. There is a small safe in the room's closet. The bathroom shower is spacious but does not include a bath tub. We had several friends in our room at one point and we did not feel crowded thanks to the large room size.

Our hotel room package included a complimentary bottle of champagne and a 20% discount towards anything from the restaurant.

Another benefit of The Angler is that they provided us with a zip up beach bag with beach towels for our use. The room also had a small portable plastic waterproof container for holding credit cards and money which was very useful when going to the beach.

Overall we greatly enjoyed the hotel room, its amenities, and it's location. I would not recommend the hotel restaurant, but I do recommend the hotel overall.
