Overview

The National Hotel Miami Beach is a perfect vacation destination for anyone looking to combine tropical relaxation with the maximum amount of luxury. Opened in 1940, this Art Deco-style hotel is on the National Trust's Historic Hotels of America list for its classic architecture and rich history. Its original style has been maintained and preserved, allowing guests a clear view into a bygone era of glamour and style.

An oak bar, original chandeliers and antique furniture are just part of what makes this hotel so special. Intricate tile work is another impressive feature that can be found both in the hotel and outside near the pool area where an inlaid compass points straight to Cuba.

Should be a 2 Star Hotel

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 22, 2015
I usually stay at Best Westerns because they're pretty good when it comes to quality and price. However, my family and I decided it would be a good idea to get a good hotel since we were visiting Miami and everything and the hotels seem to be pretty nice. The National seemed like a good option and a perfect location. The location is truly amazing. Miami beach is in the backyard. However, the hotel itself is horrible. The main lobby smells weird. There is a 20 dollar service charge every day for using the pool, but the pool isn't even open the full day. There's not even a complimentary breakfast! Also, our room was tiny! the hallway leading into the room could only fit one person in width so we would have to walk single file when we walked into the room. The bathroom, like the room, is tiny! There were broken drawers too. On our first day there, there was no WiFi. Really? I mean, even 2 star hotels have Wifi. I told one of the attendants that the WiFi wasn't working, and she said she would file a report. When we were checking out, I reminded one of the attendants about the report and ask if the hotel was going to do anything about it or if they just filed it as a formality. She said there was nothing she could really do about. When I mentioned to her that there's a certain expectation that a 4 star hotel should have WiFi, she decided to waive $20 on my stay. Really? That barely covers the tax for the stay. I once stayed at a Best Western, and when the shower wasn't working, they fixed it within an hour and gave me $100 in Best Western credit. Simply put, I would have been fine with this hotel if it were like a Quality Inn or a motel, but it's considered a four star hotel! It has rates of up to $800 a night, and I will never understand why someone would find this a place to spend their money on.

Great place to stay on Miami beach

Would recommend Wed, Oct 7, 2015
Overall hotel was great. The pool area was really nice minus the construction fixing up one of the pools but at least they take care of the property. Def can't beat the location you can pretty much walk everywhere. The rooms were a little small but the beds were very comfortable. The only complaint I have is that the maids didnt even give us more toilet paper or kleenex! They let us completely run out & we had to ask. Other than that it was great & I'd stay there again.

Couple getaway

Would recommend Mon, Aug 31, 2015
Tried to get into the Standard but booked up however this worked out just fine. Only stayed one night tho.. Pros - From the moment we checked in until we left the staff were very helpful. The location is ideal if the beach is your main goal. Hip pool scene. Cons - Wet bathroom from poor shower design. Room security safe was non working.

Birthday weekend Fun

Would recommend Wed, Aug 19, 2015
The National Hotel is an elegant place to stay. Not your typical hip, young crowd, blasting club music and drinking binges. Saw many families with children as well as relaxed couples enjoying time together. Access to the beach is always great as well as two pools to choose from. Staff was excellent and when ordered few wine glasses or extra towels, they arrived within minutes. Some stains on the linen and bathtub had scratches, but overall experience was worth the trip!

Friend Holiday

The hotel staff were always very helpful. Cleaners kept removing towels from the room and not replacing. Lovely hotel, wonderful view, very close to the beach, although it is a bit far from the center of the South Beach area, it is still very accessible, and ideal for a relaxing break.

Don't stay at National Hotel!

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 7, 2015
We were very disappointed at the end of our stay finding out about the resort fees that we paid without knowing what do they actually mean. We didn't receive any description about the additional hotel services, at the beginning of our stay, such us using swimming pools, towels, newspapers, etc. We felt that we were charged without benefiting of any of the services. We also found an authorization fee of 150$ charged on the credit card that we were not aware and we had to ask for explanations, that was stresfull raising concerns how much will we actually end up being charged. Dirty carpets in the room and on the hallways. There were no hanging no disturb fliers such that, every morning, the House Keeper was knocking loudly on all the doors at 8.00 am making noise extremely annoying.
