30th Birthday family trip

Had some issues with the room accomodations, which were immediately taken care of. The staff was very friendly and on top of any issues they were presented with.They did an excellent job. I would definetly stay in this hotel again when I visit Miami. The location was great!

Excellent location, but lousy at night

Excellent location, but a bit noisy at night. Not much can be done though because of its location at the heart of Miami beach where people party till the morning. May wish to consider another location if travelling with young kids. Otherwise, it is perfect for young couples or those wanting to party in Miami beach.

Congress Hotel South Beach

Super FUN! The hotel is in the heartbeat of Miami. If you want a great time with music and a scene it's a great place to stay. Overall great experience. A few things to keep in mind: One elevator for guests of hotel and party pool bar guests, room wasn't cleaned until late in the day and there are extra "Hotel Fees per night per guest" that I didn't appreciate.

Good hotel cleaning staff not so good

The room is very nice and well located. Not too excited about paying 12.50 per person per day in fees but I guess it covers the free breakfast at the restaurant next door and the chairs at the pool. Otherwise you would pay a lot more doing it without the hotel deal. The cleaning staff was not so good. There is only one elevator so you run into the staff all the time. Parking is $35 per day.Other than that it was good.

The Strand Hotel Ocean Drive

- Breakfast starts from 8:30 AM This might be late. - The floor is too thin. Noise may bother you. - Musics from outside are noisy. - This hotel is overpricing. - Many rooms are facing to building. - There is no parking of this hotel. You need to look for public parking.

Ne convient pas aux familles

Nous avons prolongé notre circuit en Floride de deux nuits au centre de Miami Beach et l'agence nous a conseillé cet hôtel, très bien placé. Le problème est qu'il n'y a qu'un seul lit et que de dormir à deux (mêmes adolescents) sur un canapé-lit en cuir matelassé de 1,10 m. de largeur (déplié) n'est pas confortable du tout ! De plus, les draps étaient tachés et déchirés, la couverture très sale ainsi que la moquette, pas assez de linges pour quatre personnes et un trou au plafond d'où coulait l'eau de la climatisation !!! De plus, l'hôtel se compose de 4 bâtiments et nous étions logés dans l'annexe, au-dessus de la cuisine et du restaurant, sans aucune vue et très bruyant ! Les transats de la piscine sur le toit sont pratiquement tous inutilisables car déchirés ! Je ne conseille à personne cet hôtel !
