Awesome couple getaway

Second time in South Beach and it was great.. The location of this hotel is perfect. You can walk anywhere you want to and it wouldn't take long. The room was comfortable and the staff super friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Great For just sleeping and going about your business

Hotel was OK. nothing to fancy or nothing to cheap. LOcation was great 2 blocks from the beach. They dont serve food. your best option would be to rent a scooter or dine in the JERRYS 2 blocks away. overall the HOTEL WAS GOOD.

South Beach Plaza Hotel

Friendly Service. Clean room. GREAT location. Great Boutique Hotel. One Block from the Beach, and a short walk to restaurants, clubs, bars and shopping (Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road). NOTE: This is one of many small "Boutique" hotels in South Beach, in other words it is "vintage" or an "older" building. If you are looking for amenities (such as pool or fitness room, new furniture, or a newer look), you will not find that in these "Boutique" hotels or "vintage" buildings. Located in the Art Deco District of South Beach, the "vintage" look is meant to be part of its charm. Recommend for Couples or friends looking to spend most of their time taking in South Beach & not on the amenities or newer style that a larger hotel can offer.

Staff was fantastic however..........

The Plaza was a really nice hotel within walking distance of the entire south beach area. Hotel staff were fantastic and the little bar had a great bartender and always interesting patrons. The room was not the cleanest I've stayed in and getting it cleaned was a daily chore. While I really liked the staff, I have stayed at better south beach hotels in the same class. The rooftop bar was cool, though no one ever went there and $15 for a vodka/seven in a plastic cup - c'mon?

Great Time!!!!!!!

We found the hotel to be very nice for the price point. It was very convenient to restaurants and the beach. You could walk to just about anywhere. The hotel staff was very friendly, especially [...]. We had a corner room which was nice. The trip was great, the valet parking on-time, this is my new go-to hotel for South Beach.

Cute & Quaint but small

The South Beach Plaza Hotel, was very cute and quaint. Upon entering, there is a veranda that is very welcoming and the lobby has an up to date decor that is inviting and relaxing. The room was clean, but very small. There was no separation from the bathroom and bedroom, except a door; so there was no feeling of privacy. The bathroom was very small, there was no vanity area only a small overhead cabinet so you could not keep your personals in the bathroom. Also, as it is a historical hotel, the water pressure is low and the water flow is not regulated; hot and cold water kept fluctuating during showering. The hotel staff was friendly and the location was good. As I was not in the room except to sleep and shower, I was not bothered by the tight quarters of the room. I had a great trip and a pleasant stay at the hotel, I would stay there again but I'd perfer a villa if there's one available instead of a room.

South Beach Plaza Hotel

I was there for a weekend. I had a good experience. The hotel is five minutes from South beach and ten minutes from Lincoln Avenue. Great location.

good location, good coffee

When we arrived, we were a little put off by the dance music playing in the lobby, and the strong smell of suntan lotion. It all seemed a little sleezy. As it turns out, we ended up liking this hotel quite a lot. My impression is that this is an old, somewhat dingy beach hotel that someone has really spruced up. If you look close you can definitely see that old dingy hotel underneath, but it delivers where it counts: The room was nice. The staff is very friendly. The free coffee is good. The free wine is good. It's a block from the beach. If you just want an affordable hotel in South Beach that gets the basics right, this is a good bet.
