Tropical getaway hotel in the center of all the South Beach action

This boutique Art Deco hotel tempts Miami Beach visitors who want to be close to clubs and the pristine beach. The 64-room property satisfies South Beach fantasies, bringing drama, glitz and history together in one tropical setting. The circa 1937 building has seen its splendor restored in floors, murals and ironwork. Modern accents distinguish the property, and no two rooms are alike.

Highlights
  • Art Deco hotel steps from South Beach clubs, restaurants and shops
  • 64 rooms, including two penthouse suites
  • Wi-Fi access is included in the Resort Fee
Rooms

Stark white linens show off the decor showpiece in the 64 rooms: an oversized picture of local flora and natural elements, usually in green, that spans the entire wall. Each room features a different image. A Czechoslovakian crystal chandelier hangs from the ceiling to remind guests that this is still glamorous South Beach. Every room has a plasma TV and refrigerator.

Features

The hotel is intimate and private without being too far removed from South Beach's go-to sightseeing, shopping and nightlife spots. With Lincoln Road, Ocean Drive, Collins and Washington Avenue just steps away, visitors will find no shortage of restaurants, clubs and boutiques after a day at the beach. The hotel also has private garden terraces, a secluded patio and the quiet President's Green Bar and Restaurant.

Short stay

Staff were really nice! Close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Deal price is as expected for the hotel itself. I didn't expect much but I was still very disappointed with the bed. It was like the 2nd bed under the real cushion one and had them refurbished as you can feel the springs literally. They said they were working on it and I read that in one of the reviews way back January and its the end of april. Otherwise, stay was great in this location.

Spring break from Ohio

Had a wonderful time. My room was clean, bright and very roomy. Amenities were great but I wish I had a small microwave to compliment the fridge. They did offer continental breakfast and 2 welcome drinks at happy hour. Staff was very friendly and pleasant. Only one block to walk and put your feet in the sand. All the essentials are within walking distance of the hotel. I had a lovely time.

Excellent location and staff

I paid a great price for my stay at the President Hotel. The location was ideal and the staff was always available to assist. There weren't many amenities but I don't need much because I am rarely in the hotel to begin with.

In Miami on Business

Pretty Basic Amenities at the hotel, perfect location to stay in on South Beach, stayed here for a convention at the Miami Beach convention center. A $4-$6 cab ride to convention center or a 10-15 min walk. About a 6 minute walk to Walgreens, 1 block away from Ocean Drive....looking for a quick cheap bite, theres Alibi on Espanola Way.....try the Chicken or Cheese Steak. Theres a liquor store close by with a variety of affordable liquors. The continental breakfast is pretty basic. Overall I had a great stay

excellent service!

We booked this hotel for the location and price. We didn't expect anything fancy or any real amenities. We definitely got.more than expected. The employees were EXTREMELY nice and helpful. Leo, Maiquel, Holly, and Aneesa were wonderful. Between the penguin, which had discounted breakfast made to order for president guests (where we ate every.morning. very reasonable), to the location which was right across from the beach. We LOVED it here and will return. I'll admit the room was roomy but bare. Very simple. However, who needs a ton of furniture when you're on south beach?! We quickly got over the simple furniture bec the service More than makes up for it.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Save money and eat breakfast at their sister hotel the penguin. Delish and wonderful service. The same employees are often at the president. So it's nice to be greeted by familiar faces and friendly accommodating people. Saving money is a bonus considering how much you'll spend at other restaurants later on. Also, be sure to catch happy hour at most restaurants. Great deals! Two for one appetizers and drinks, for example.
