Lord Balfour, a refreshing take on South Beach boutique hotels, is situated directly on Ocean Drive, just south of Fifth Street. The neighborhood, better known as "SoFi" to the South Beach locals, is a relaxing oasis in the heart of the Art Deco District. The hotel's Ocean Drive location is in close proximity to the city's ever growing arts and culture scene. Miami Beach's turquoise waters are just steps from the hotel, and shopping, restaurants, and South Beach's dazzling nightlife are all within walking distance. Lord Balfour's 64 rooms and suites are a refreshing take on South Beach hotels, designed with clean, modern lines, and incorporating a distinctive allure. From bamboo hardwood floors to luxurious ETRO Bathroom products, Lord Balfour offers a full array of boutique hotel comforts for the ultimate South Beach experience. Public spaces have been transformed: chic vintage style merges with art deco in a thoroughly modern setting. An expansive veranda facing Ocean Drive provides a perfect place to people watch while enjoying a refreshing beverage from the lobby bar. An interior palm courtyard provides a more tranquil retreat to enjoy a morning coffee or evening cocktail.

Starting January 15, 2014 - A $18 resort fee will be due at time of checkin which includes Continental breakfast for two, Internet and 2 Beach chairs.

Fun Stay

We were greeted curbside and invited in to a lobby that smelled of fresh, inviting scents. Upon check-in, we were told about hotel HAPPY HOUR which was just what we needed after our flight! Everyone was smiling and very inviting. We will definitely return soon!

Don't rent a car if you're staying on Ocean Drive...Everything is within walking distance and traffic via car was quite congested. NOT WORTH IT!

Nice hotel great location!

The hotel is in an excellent position, rooms were spotless, bed comfortable, breakfast basic but nice. Our only criticism is that there was no facility to get showered up, as we had a late flight and checkout was early. Would have expected a four star hotel to have catered for this, considering it is a beach resort.

Amazing staff and updated rooms

From the moment that I walked in, every staff member greeted me and was extremely professional. The rooms were a bit small but the beds were comfortable and updated. The decor of this hotel is really nice. I have stayed at the Ritz Carlton on South beach and the only that has got over this place is marble and more space. To be quite honest I enjoyed this place more than the Ritz.. Thanks to Devin, Richard, the other guy who carried my luggage and the concierge. I have never been treated so well at a hotel. You should go! Everything is within walking distance.

fancy and great location

very cool hotel in a great location. Still within walking distance of all the action but far enough that it's not crazy. The room was fancy and nice. The shower a bit impractical. The lobby was very nice and the breakfast was surprisingly good, for what it was. Parking is a killer. $35 a night. Ugh. The beach access was great. The one big complaint: noise. The walls are paper thin and most people in South Beach come back to their rooms late at night, drunk. Good luck sleeping through that. At one point we were able to hear a person in the other room breathing heavily. seriously. Overall, a great place to stay (if you are agnostic to the noise) in SB.

Amazing!

The staff at this hotel are wonderful, helpful and willing to go out if their way to make your stay perfect. The location is fantastic! About 1min walk to the beach. With sunbeds reserved everyday for hotel guests, free wifi, free breakfast and two for one cocktails during the week, this hotel is outstanding. I couldn't recommend it enough.

Don't get caught out by the $45 cocktails along the strip. Try eating elsewhere, the hotel has a list if great restaurants to try.
