Nestled on the corner of quaint Espanola Way and Washington Avenue, The Clay Hotel is a jewel among places to stay in the historic Art Deco District of Miami Beach. Twenty- four hours a day, you can step through wood carved French doors into the cool, terra cotta tiled lobby where you'll be greeted by our multi lingual staff at the front desk-the same desk that's been there since 1925. After you've checked in and unpacked your bags, take a stroll down Espanola Way and observe the exotic features that make this one of the most alluring streets in South Beach.

Perfect for true SoBe Experience

Staff was super friendly and helpful showing us to our room. The room was confusing to get to but a staff member stopped what they were doing and with out a problem walked us up. I honestly have not had a good experience with hotel staff in a longgggg time. Breakfast was good as well packaged so you could take back up to hotel, nap more, then eat. Only negative was the loud music. I can sleep through a lot of things though so if you are a light sleeper I would recommend not even staying on SoBe unless you stay further down the boring side of the strip. Would definitely recommend to a friend!

Unique and awesome place

The hotel was broken up and confusing with lack of staff to help direct, there was also remodeling in our building which looked half done with carpet ripped up in spots throughout the building, if they did a section at a time it would have looked less trashy. But the room was fantastic, perfectly laid out, amazing modern and unique fixtures, quiet, clean, really enjoyed the stay a lot, the location was perfect alongside my favorite Cuban restaurant in south beach, was an amazing get away.

Sort of Cute

Ok I am writing this 2 years late but its still my valid opinion. This is definitely a 3 star hotel, very boutique. It lacks many amenities hotels nowadays have but you get just what you need for a short stay in South Beach. The architecture is very old style; and that's a good thing. You feel like you are in South Beach! While its no treasure I have no problem recommending anyone I know to stay here for the very nostalgic, sexy, scenic and inexpensive location.

Perfect for What I was Looking For

I had a wonderful experience at The Clay Hotel. Although my flight got in at 5AM, Miami time, and they couldn't guarantee my early check in, it actually worked out that I was able to hang out with some friends who were in town for the first half of my day. Once I officially made my way to South Beach, I was greeted warmly by the staff, set up properly in my room, and was given awesome treatment and tourist tips throughout! I will say that the room was very simple, so if you're looking for luxury, this might not be your first choice. However, I wanted a nice clean room to store my stuff and freshen up in while I explored Miami and drank rum on the beach. The room was clean - no creepy crawlies- the bed was very comfortable, the TV worked and had cable, and there was a fridge. The bathroom was small, but came with all the essentials, and some very nice smelling toiletries. Thus, for my entire package being less than $800, I was not disappointed. You also cannot beat the location!!! Right in the middle of AMAZING restaurants - seriously, you walk right out of the door into an alley of tapas bars and yummyness. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away, and if you want to do shopping at almost any store you can think of, Lincoln Blvd is within walking distance. The night clubs and party spots are all within a short cab ride or walking distance as well! Come prepared to shake your tooshie!! The last day was the best! After I cleaned up and checked out, I asked the front desk man if I could store my bag in the luggage holding room and go to the beach for a couple hours. Not only did they hold my stuff [and gave me a ticket to claim], they called a cab for me as well! Needless to say, I can't wait to come back to Miami.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Most restaurants charge an automatic 18-20% gratuity, even if you're dining alone. Also, alcohol is pretty expensive at the restaurants. Thus, I would suggest, if you enjoy libations the way I do, to visit one of the numerous liquor stores who provide cheap alcohol and keep your meals as meals. You'll be far happier when you're not spending $15 for a cup of juice.

Great one night stay...

This place is in a great location...waking distance to everything...the valet packing is the best...don't try to look for parking elsewhere...the street is closed for the night and lots of restaurants to choose from.
