Shore Club South Beach Hotel
Ranked #56 of 212 Hotels in Miami Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 June 2011

I really liked the shore club. The location is fantastic, the pool and grounds feel lush. The crowd is fun. Had a girls weekend away and enjoyed the hotel. My room was clean...there wasn't much too it...cement floors, sparse furniture, contemporary bathrooms. But the bed was very comfortable. Although I wasn't too impressed for the price, it is Miami and found it fair for just over $400/night given the location and proximity to everything you'd want to be close to.

The crowd at the pool was a mix of young party people and families. You need to get there early if you want a chance at getting a chair. The 2nd pool was quieter. There were plenty of beach chairs...being with a girlfriend, we weren't charged. But I think there may be a charge for guys for chairs. If you want an umbrella, there is a $16 charge to your room.

As for other prices in Miami, I experienced a little sticker shock even compared to NYC. On the beach, I ordered two drinks - a bloody mary and a vodka soda = $38 dollars. Later that day = a bottle of Voss water (medium size) = $15. The food at the pool was average for above average prices but it was convenient. Do yourself a favor and go to the store a block down the street for water before hitting the beach.

Besides that the bar area at night was lively, the music was good. I didnt eat at any of the restaurants at the hotel but Nobu is on-site...you'll need a reservation if you want to eat there because it books up.

Overall, it was a good stay but certainly not for someone that's trying to vacation on a tight budget.

Ap_Phoenix,

Thank you for visiting us! Girls' weekend are so much fun at Shore Club as you have plenty of options of lounging by the pool, partying at SkyBar, getting pampered at our spa or relaxing at the beach to keep your group entertained at all times.

Our clientele ranges in age, but we are the hotel for the young and young at heart and because of that we have the main pool with a more energetic ambiance and the beach pool with a quiet vibe.

As a clarification, we have similar pricing of food and beverage as other hotels in the area and we also provide complimentary beach chairs to all our guests, regardless of their gender.

Too bad you did not get to enjoy Ago or Nobu! Hopefully you can go when you return!

Thanks,

Jennifer

The staff is extremely friendly and always willing to help.
The hotel is hip and the rooms are very comfortable.
You can't beat the location, it's in the heart of Miami Beach.
Worth every penny.

Room Tip: Book with time, it is usually sold out.

I live in Miami and going to this hotel just for the weekend makes you feel like you really got away without the hassle of the TSA stripping me down. The hotel is "old" compared to the new buildings popping up all the time - but that means like 10 years. And it's not dated one bit. Their pool scene is better than any other. Not the Standard or Ganesvoort have the foliage, the violet lighting, the giant poolside beds, Nobu is on the first floor.

I highly recommend their spa. The masseuse named Kristian will change your body with his Swedish massage and the rooftop location of the spa is also totally rad to be in between appointments.

Everything is pricey. That's the cost of being cool in the hot sun in Miami.
A highly recommended place that will leave you feeling like a celebrity and again, the spa will totally rejuvenate you.

Stayed: June 2011, travelled as a couple

Great hotel great location on south Beach. Hotel Manager Tim Nardi and GEM Jennifer and Concierge Bali Brilliant!!. If you can go for a suite facing south Beach. it does make a difference. Avoid the Urban music Festival on South Beach...unless you are specifically going for that!

Use the spa. i had a great massagealthough very aggresive it did me better than any other! My wife reckons she had the best facial she has ever had...and she would have many to compare with!

We arrived just as it ended and it didnt do the area justice. Then the area calmed down and it was outstanding. The service from the hotel was outstanding and they exceeded our expectations. We will return.

Room Tip: Compare prices and even callhotel direct

I stayed at The Shore Club for Labor Day weekend 2010. It was such a great place to stay. The staff was overly helpful and nice. Very convenient to shopping, clubs, and dining. Our room was on the 9th floor with ocean & pool views. The pool was so much fun especially on Sundays. The chairs and lounge furniture at the pool are very comfy. The spa is a great plus too. We went to SkyBar our first night there and it was a blast. The decor is very stylish and the rooms were very cozy. I will definitely stay at The Shore Club again and totally recommend it!

After November last year I was again back at the Shore Club and I felt again very good.
Very friendly stuff who do care. Very positive is the free WiFi in the Lobby it avoids to spend money while you are in the room and the same time it allows to have an idea of the people (mostly young) accessing the hotel. Restaurant Ago as usual superb...best Italian restaurant in town. Very friendly Italian bartenders. Worthy to have a chat with them. Room cleaned and service always prompt. Beach access. Pool party over weekends is overpopulated. Parking valet is expensive for $42/day, but this is together with the pricing of the water for $ 8+ (usually in other hotel offered for free) a couple of the negative issues....otherwise I will return again and again.

Dear Neosal,

Thanks for your loyalty! Thanks for your kind comments about our staff, pool, beach, and Ago restaurant.

I agree that parking prices are steep, but it is all throughout Miami Beach and our valet parking is comparable to other hotels in the area.

We hope to see you many times in the near future!

Best,

Jennifer
