This is the second time when I stay at GBH and it was a great experience. I even got the same room:) which was very nice. I really like this place! The hotel is not too big, not too small; is not too far from South Beach; the service is great; the
beach is nice. I will go back for sure.
The staff was very rude and it was obviouse they do not like americans. Also they charge your debt card $225 and up dependibg on how many days you stay incase of damage, but it takes 3to5 days to go back on your card after you leave. Also there is
no microwaves in the room and they dont warm up food. It is also far from the strip. So overall the room was very nice but everything else was terrible.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Everything has mandatory 18% graturity if its dinning in or carry out
We opted to upgrade to the penthouse and it was a great decision. Our view was amazing! We could see the beach, bay and pool from both our balconies...yes we had two balconies. The room carpet had a couple stains and we didn't have the eating
table in our room as indicated in the room description. That's why I'm not giving the hotel 5 stars. If you're looking for a relaxing Miami Beach location this will suit your needs perfectly. However, if you're looking for a party you show stay at a hotel on South Beach. This hotel is about a 10 minute drive from South Beach. I can't wait to go back!
Not worth the money but that's South Beach! $30 per night for parking is really steep. Waiting 45 minutes for a bellman despite 3 phone calls to the Front Desk is not how "4 stars" hotel functions. Food at the only restaurant was OK but pricey.
Breakfast buffet was good and with the mandatory 18% service and tax comes to $28.00 per person. Beach umbrellas and chairs are not complimentary...they cost $10 each pus tax. South Beach is really a tourist trap and there are many other locations around Pompano Beach and Ft. Lauderdale that are less touristy, more reasonable, and better beaches!
I took my wife down to the Grand Beach Hotel in Miami and had a great weekend. The room was huge and the staff was great. The price was very reasonable and for the type of room we got it was a steal. I definitely will be staying again next time in
Awesome! The hotel does not look like much when you see it from the street. The lobby is clean and appropriate, with no needless fireworks. Once you get to your room.....JACKPOT!!! Large spaces (no mind tricks or wannabe decorator projects),
excellent views. All the flash is saved for you! Second visit, can't wait for third!
