“Right in the Heart of all the action”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Location could not be better for Miami Beach. Hotel staff was really great - appreciated the "Welcome Pina Colada" and helpful information. Wi-Fi is free, and service was good. Even though the Hotel is "Ocean-Front", it's a long block through the park to the beach. Pool is not really "swimmable", and more of a bar-scene - but they let you use the one next door which is great. Both live and DJ music in the courtyard is loud and continues until 4am, but my room was amazingly soundproof. Bath was small but adequate. Linens were of good quality and plentiful towels. Overall, a GREAT choice.

Room Tip: Only a few rooms have a balcony, mine was huge and I used it instead of going down to the pool - ask...

Just stayed for a bachelorette party. All girls in their 30's. not age appropriate, very young, thug punk crowd hangs out here. Stay above15th street. Much better clientele, and feels safer.

All drunk kids(age 16-21) very drunk and rowdy. Felt uncomfortable and harassed as a woman in that area below 15th street.

Extremely loud as well. Bar goes until 6 am every night. You won't be able to sleep.

Only good for young college kids.

We visited the Delano and loved it! Stay there, the national, or W hotel as well.

Room Tip: Definitely choose to have an ocean view in the separate corridor

This hotel is awesome. Everyone there was professional, friendly and courteous. At check-in they give you a piña colada, at checkout bottles of water. Will be back next March for sure. It was spring break and not of college age the pool area was jammed with a deejay and still the room was quiet

Room Tip: Rooms a little small but nice

The Clevelander is a super cool spot in the heart of Ocean Drive. I was there to relax during my business trip and loved it. I mean, I can see how some older folks may not enjoy the vibe but honestly, it's right up my alley. On the day I was there, we arrived just in time for half-priced appetizers and drinks - their version of South Beach happy hour. The atmosphere, complete with a live DJ, was perfect to get my mind off of business. The waitress was very helpful and super friendly, as was the manager who was walking around checking on us all. Seeing as it was the perfect location, we decided to stay. The rooms were great, they were exactly what we expected. To be honest, we were there to have a good time and not spend a lot of time in the room anyhow.

Maybe the best part was being able to just walk across the street and lay out on the beautiful Miami Beach.

One more thing, the valet guys were very professional - prompt and courteous.

Loved the experience and would return.

Room Tip: Be ready for some noise, it is South Beach afterall. If possible, try to face away from the bar area...

We unfortunately did not stay at the hotel, however enjoyed our first happy hour here during our trip and the only downfall to this restaurant is that is gave us high expectations for the rest of our trip. We enjoyed their 'Drunken Rockstar' dessert and may I say, it was AMAZING. We both also enjoyed one of their 45oz drinks. 1) it was the best we had all week and 2) don't expect to drink anything more all night after one of those. (ha). The only reason I did not give a full 5 is because the waitstaff work for gratuity only. I understand this is a management issue and maybe in the end they do make more on a busy day then the average person. Speaking with out waitress she informed us that even without a tip she is still required to tip out to the bar and the kitchen which is not right.

Overall we had a great experience and if we weren't exploring the city would have returned!

From the moment I made the reservation (and follow up confirmation email) the stay couldn't have been better!! We chose this hotel bc, well, we are from Cleveland (Ohio). Thought it was fate!! What a great decision!! Upon check in we were greeted with piña coladas and warm, friendly smiles by the front desk staff. The staff escorted us to our room and received a complimentary upgrade to oceanfront room...yeah!! Headed to the beach and the staff gave us directions, towels and answered our questions. Our room was small (but every room is small in SoBe), very CLEAN & modern. We even received individual ear plugs!! I was greeted with chocolates, hand-written card & free drink cards for my bday!! It's the little things that count!! The bar was amazing, albeit loud! Great drinks & music...the happening spot-even on a Monday pm!! We will definitely stay here again and I highly recommend if you're looking for a reasonably-priced, clean, happening hotel in a great location with AMAZING service!!!! Can't wait to return!!!!
