“Kind of the Marilyn Monroe of hotels....”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

First I want to thank the Raleigh for all the hospitality they showed during our visit. Great staff and the bartender at the back pool par was simply outstanding. The hotel is a throw back to the good 'ole days of South Beach whatever those are to you. For the most part the hotel seems to be polished version of the original that was built in the 1940's. Being there is kind of like visiting your really hip grandmother and I like it that way. Miami Beach is well on it's way of losing it's soul to the devil so it's nice that this and some others like it stay the same. The pool also feels like it's the original and although it's definitely time for some tile work the water quality is amazing. They turned the old diving board platform into a water feature......nice touch! So order up a martini, turn on your Dean Martin station on Pandora and enjoy!!!!!

Thank you for sharing your experience with us and for the lovely compliment, we are flattered that you would consider us "kind of the Marilyn Monroe of hotels." We certainly pride ourselves in being the "grand dame" of the strip, with the nostalgic charm of the bygone era of the "Rat Pack" and "Jackie Gleason" circa 1940's-50's. Amidst all the change and modernization it is nice to know that some things remain timeless. We're happy to hear that our pool staff and pool bar bartender provided you with memorable service; that is what we strive for. We would love to have you stay with us again and please feel free to contact me directly to assist you with your next visit.

Best,

Tiffany Morris

We chose this small, boutique hotel because of its location (on the beach), pool, art deco design, and promo package that allowed us to afford a room with direct ocean view and balcony, plus no daily hotel fee (saved $20/day), a $25 food credit, 20% off season rate, and one room category upgrade. The location turned out to be great, I can't imagine not being on the beach (only the lovely 'boardwalk' was between the hotel and beach). Our hotel also provided beach chair (with cushions) and towel set up. It was very nice too, that we seemed to located in a section of lower rise art deco hotels, set back from the beach. No mega towers or resorts overwhelming us. 'The location also seemed to idea for walking to Lincoln, restaurants, etc. and not in the heart of 'craziness.' As two active and healthy 55 year olds celebrating 30 years together, we did not feel out of place or uncomfortable. This may partially have been because the Raleigh was not adults only, and had a nice mix of a view young parents with toddlers, to bridesmaid parties, to honeymooners, etc.

We arrived to be greeted with exactly what we expected with our room and package. In our room was chocolate dipped strawberries and a bottle of chilled champagne in honor of our anniversary. A very lovely and appreciated gesture. I will say the rooms were nicely appointed and equipped, but nothing particularly swanky. Bathrooms had no tub and a very tight shower, and no counter space. However, we were very comfortable and I liked the walk in closet and live orchid, and beautiful, soft throw on the couch. I cannot imagine, however, staying here without a view of the pool/ocean. There are very few balconies and again, we wouldn't stay there without one. I will say though, the large air conditioner on the hotel next door was extremely loud, so when you are out on the balcony you can't hear the ocean over the din. It did take away from being on the balcony.

Pool was a gorgeous oasis and really added to our stay, particularly with very hot, humid September weather. Service was also almost universally excellent. Food was also excellent, if pricey -- it was particularly nice having that food credit. The homemade, grilled pineapple and basil soda was fabulous, refreshing and not to be missed!

We stayed three nights and the better part of 4 days and were thrilled with our choice. Having explored and walked through a number of other properties we had considered, we really think it was a fantastic choice -- especially with the great package, service, setting and location.

Room Tip: Must have one on an upper floor for view of ocean and above noise.

I want to thank the staff at the Raleigh Hotel for a wonderful stay. Satoshi and I enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the professional service. We ended up enjoying Michael Schwartz's restaurant so much we ate almost exclusively there in order to try out as many of the selections as we could. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed at The Raleigh the last weekend of September. We have stayed at dozens of hotels big and small in South Beach and this one ended up being one of our favorites! Found the lobby very cozy and the reception was very nice, Kimberly. We had a room with a magnificent view of the glamourous pool! The room wasn't very big but of course it being an older boutique hotel. I found the staff very attentive and helpful. The Martini bar is a must visit. Trevor the bartender is very knowledgeable and takes his time to make you a drink you will really enjoy. We had dinner at Restaurant Michael Schwartz and really enjoyed it! Romantic, delicious. Beach area wonderful. Valet was prompt and friendly. Thank you Tiffany thank you everyone for a wonderful weekend. We will be back

Room Tip: Room with oceanfront & pool view very worth it

My wife and I celebrated over 20th anniversary at the Raleigh. We had a great time. The staff was very friendly. The pool is open 24/7 and we really enjoyed our nighttime swims. The beach was fantastic.
Thanks to all at the Raleigh who ensured that we had a great time. We will be back as soon as we can to stay on room 802 again.

My husband and I had a great weekend in Miami celebrating my 30th birthday. We decided to try the Raleigh Hotel because we wanted that boutique hotel feel and the Raleigh was PERFECT. The pool is beautiful and the beach lounge chairs were sooo comfortable. I really loved the outdoor bar area and restaurant. The food is absolutely incredible, Michael Schwartz knows what he is doing in the kitchen! The hotel is walking distance to Lincoln road with great shopping and restaurants. The hotel staff were really friendly and very accommodating. We will definitely stay at the Raleigh again.

For two weekends in a row, a group of friends (4 couples) enjoyed a delightful lunch at Michael Schwartz's restaurant at the Raleigh which included a large private cabana for all of us and a magnum of Rose Wine. It was a wonderful day by their beautiful pool. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. The cabana area is very private and cozy. One of the couples in our group spent the night at the hotel and happened to mention to the receptionist when booking the reservation that it was his wife's birthday. Later that evening, they were having dinner at the hotel and the staff came to the table with a birthday cake! It was a very pleasant surprise! Customer service is what makes this hotel special!
