Not worth the price personally

The room was very average. The room was very small, no space to move around at all. The room had a funny smell. The bathroom was small and very old. The toilet was old and outdated. The bathtub didn't drain very well at all so every time I took a shower it felt like I was in a pool by the end of it because the tub was full of water that was up to my calfs. I know this wasn't a New problem and it's a shame that they haven't done anything to fix it. Great staff.

Don't get sick while traveling

Spent most the time bedridden due to a stomache flu; not the fault of the hotel by any means.

not bad for price

It was not bad for the price, but you should pay for valet parking, $ 29 or park at public parking lot paying $1.25/hr. However, from midnight - 9 am, it is free so it won't be over $ 20/day.

The Traveler... For fun & relaxation
Ann Arbor, Mi
Sep 27, 2009

A quite relaxing trip...

I pretty much was there for business and relaxation... I've traveled to South Beach often and this is the first time I stayed at the Essex and I was pretty pleased. So often people expect to be swept off their feet by their hotel experience and so many things to happen for them but sorry, that's just not quite reality. The staff at the hotel were as friendly as they could be in my point of view. I received clean towels when I needed them, they provided beach towels as well (we had to of course request them), happy hour drink specials, perks, specials and other amenities for the sister hotel next door, and it was pretty much a nice stay. I think I'll probably be staying there the next time I go to back. As well, the location is in such a prime spot. If I chose to go to the beach, it was literally one street to the left and I was literally at the beaches entrance. If we chose to shop, literally the shopping stores began in the first block in which the hotel was adjoined. Really, I appreciate a relaxing stay and this location gave me that, as well being very close to things to do that was quite fun. Not to mention the valet was more than convenient. Other hotels I've stayed at on South Beach have been much worse at the same price and others have been remarkable at a much more expensive price. For the cost and what was received from this trip, I really liked the hotel. Just remember, you pay for what you get...

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

May take a while but walk past all of the restaurants before you make your final decision on where you are going to eat. Some restaurants will have specials (food &/or drink), pay attention to how many people are eating there and what are they eating, etc. Pretty much, be observant. The last two times I came down, I got food poisoning!!! But not this time, THANK GOD.
