Nice hotel situated on the promenade. We were in one of the busiest weekends of the year (4th of July) and still the staff had time enough to help all the guests. The breakfast at the restaurant was very good, don't try the diner.

The hotel staff are very friendly and yes it is a small hotel. The rooms ending in 01 and 02 are with a view of the beach across the street. There is one small elevator serving the hotel, so the stairs became quite useful. The rooms are tiny as are the bathrooms, but clean. The art deco style is charming, and steps to all the main attractions in south beach, including Lincoln and Esponala Way. 24 hour parking is available at a public garage steps from the hotel, about $20...slightly cheaper than Valet. Also, there is a great sandwich shop around the corner where the locals go...ask the staff, La Sandwicherie. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Choose rooms ending in 01 or 02...these are ocean view

A friend and I spent 3 nights at the Winter Haven in July. We selected the Winter Haven on the basis of wanting to stay in an Art Deco property in South Beach and a great deal offered by a travel discount site. The hotel was a reasonable choice at the heavily discounted price we paid but would have been a questionable choice at the $350+ rack rate quoted on the reservation paperwork.

Our room was very, very small - possibly appearing more so because we asked for a room with 2 beds. There was hardly enough floor room for suitcases laying flat. There was also no refrigerator or coffee-making appliance and the only desk-like space was very small and covered with the mini bar stuff - there wasn't any other space for a mini bar which explains why it was on the tiny (Art Deco) desk/table thing. The bathroom was new, modern and small but adequate.

The hotel itself has lots of original features, or close enough to seem original, including a terrazzo floor in the lobby and interesting light fittings. It also has a mezzanine sitting area with coffee, a guest computer and nice view out to the sea. The free wifi worked very well and I spent quite a bit of time in the mezzanine working in lieu of working in the bedroom.

Our tariff included a continental breakfast consisting of several small pastries but the restaurant had a good al la carte breakfast as well and also pretty good food at other meals. The little lobby bar made very good cocktails. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The hotel has no pool but provides towels for guests to use at the beach which is, after all, just across the road. There is also no on-site parking but valet parking is available for $25/night which is about average for Miami hotels.

Overall, the Winter Haven was a reasonable choice for us and very well placed on Ocean Drive. I would consider it for a return visit especially at something close to the very good discount rate we found.

Room Tip: The room with 2 beds was very, very small.

We came to stay at this hotel in mid July for a Girls weekend. From even before our arrival. the hotel staff was excellent to work with! Nina was so great with our requests to accommodate our group and Lissette was excellent as well through the entire check-in process with such a large group of girls. We had 3 rooms on the 5th floor and it was perfect! The walls were thick so we couldn't hear anything from the other rooms. The beds were super comfortable and the bathrooms were just what we needed for a group of girls. The restaurant at the hotel was also very delicious - which is where we had breakfast each of the mornings. In addition - the location of the hotel was perfect for getting around to the nightlife, restaurants, and of course, being right on the beach is perfect. There was no pool, but there is a gorgeous rooftop deck that you can mingle at. The staff here was so so excellent, they truly made our stay perfect and so memorable. I've already recommended this hotel to many more of my girlfriends.

Be sure to grab beach towels early in the morning as they go quickly! Also - the elevator can be a little slow so be patient :) The beds are super comfortable and the closets in the rooms are super spacious. Thanks so much Winter Haven for making this such a memorable and wonderful stay! We'll be back again soon :)

This little gem of a hotel is a refreshing reminder of the Florida's past in the 21st century. It has charm and is centrally located to the local shops on Lincoln St and then a beautiful view of the park and beach across Ocean Drive. The staff are always ready to provide service with a smile.

The restaurant also serves a fabulous meal, whether breakfast, lunch, dinner or or just a quick drink and a snack.

Enjoy South Beach and stay at the Winter Haven!
