Owned by the same creative folks behind the Diesel Jeans company, the Pelican (whose brazen, albeit appropriate, motto is "A myth in its own limelight") is South Beach's only self-professed "toy-hotel," in which each of its 30 rooms and suites is decorated as outrageously as some of the area's more colorful drag queens. Each room has been designed daringly and rather wittily by Swedish interior decorator Magnus Ehrland, whose countless trips to antiques markets, combined with his wild imagination, have turned room no. 309, for instance, into the "Psychedelic(ate) Girl," room no. 201 into the "Executive Fifties" suite, and room no. 209 into the " Love, Peace and Leafforest" room. But the most popular is the tough-to-score room no. 215, or the "Best Whorehouse," which is said to have made even former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss red with envy. The Penthouse that occupies the top floor is almost more 007 than James Bond's own pad -- very '60s, in color and pattern, with a big aquarium built into a copper wall and a yellow Shultz table and chair.
Credit card required at check in. Name on credit card must match name on reservation....Pet Policy: We accept pets less than 20 lbs. There is a $100.00 non refundable cleaning fee due at check in. There is an additional fee of $25.00 per day per pet.
Valet Parking is $27.00 plus tax per night.

Non Florida residents will pay the hotel any rate difference if booking a resident rate.

Great Hotel

This was a perfect hotel for me, checkin was easy and my room was even ready early. They provided beach towls and beach chairs for free and free drinks during 4-6 (2 max). You couldn't really ask for a better location, its right in the middle of EVERYTHING. I definitely would stay there again.

Fun place with a great location

This hotel was immaculate. It had daily maid service, helpful staff, and a fun attitude. Clubs were nearby, many restaurants. Free breakfast was great! No noise in the rooms. Comfy beds. We will be back.

Mango's nightclub is about 1/2 a block away. If you want to party, this is a good place to do it.

Great Staff

The front desk was amazing from the time we checked in till the time we departed. Room was clean and refreshed everyday. The only negative I have with this hotel is their waiter and waitress staff. They could be a little more courteous along with some training.. They were very slow at times and borderline rode. Everything else was perfect. I managed to leave my LV luggage bag at the front desk and they coordinated with a taxi cab driver to get my bag to me before my flight. The front desk went above and beyond! Greatly appreciated!

Good spot

It was great staff was nice but me and my partner was a bit annoyed with the fact that we had to wait for our room for so long and no one made sure we was comfortable while waiting. The fan in our room was a lil loud maybe some oily will help.... Happy hour drinks were not good there is a two drink limit which suck we only try two of they drinks and we was like no thank you. We also had a chair in our room that got taken out while we was still there pretty unprofessional. Beside the lil things it was a great stay. Thank you

Great staff

The location is great and the staff is awesome to work with! The rooms aren't comfortable enough and we got stuck with not very comfortable bed, but overall it was a good experience. I'd stay there again, all because of the great staff.

Graduate Getaway

My friend and I decided to head to Miami to celebrate our completion of our undergraduate studies. We went in knowing that the hotel was in a great location, but other than that, we didn't know what to expect. When we arrived we were informed of all the amenities! We were able to have a great breakfast, happy hour drinks, beach towels/chairs; not to mention all the staff went out of their way to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. I would most definitely stay there again!
