General

The hotel offers enough amenities that guests don't need to leave the property for food and entertainment. An elevated outdoor pool boasts day beds for snoozing by the Atlantic Ocean. A 6,000-square-foot spa pampers with massages, facials, mineral and water treatments. Two restaurants, a contemporary bistro and oceanfront Mediterranean eatery take advantage of outdoor dining. Cocktails are served poolside at the Lapidus Lounge or the relaxed Lobby Bar, where musicians perform on Fridays and Saturdays from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Location

Well-heeled business and leisure travelers call this Lincoln Road elegant hotel their second home. The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, is within walking distance to a 10-block pedestrian esplanade of boutiques, bars and restaurants. The 375-room property has a reputation for contemporary opulence. The landmark building was designed by notable architect Morris Lapidus, the father of the Miami Beach resort style. His visual imprints live on, as does the Ritz's trademark service in this blissful tropical setting.

Rooms

A full-scale renovation of the 1953 Morris Lapidus-designed building upped the ante on luxury. Dark cherry furniture complements handsome nautical stripes in royal blue, spruce green and burnished gold. Large windows and balconies show off the bustling nightlife of South Beach and the tranquil Atlantic Ocean and pool. And then there's the pampering. The hotel creates a heavenly high-end retreat with amenities such as luxurious Italian marble bathrooms and lanai rooms that are easily accessible to the infinity pool. Wi-Fi (fees apply) is available in all rooms.

Good vacay

Overall I had a pleasant stay however, they nickel and dime you for everything. The fine print is not obvious about the $200.00 per night amenity fee. The rooms were below my expectation for 350.00 per night fee. There was visual wear and tear I don't expect from such a high-end hotel. The Bell service takes what seems like a year to bring items to your room. The front desk staff is awesome & pool side service is great!

Romantic getaway

Needs a Facelift, been here before but has a dated look compared to today's Standard. No mini Bar in Room that's unusual. Wouldn't go back next Time.

Underwhelming

We were not thrilled by the quality of the hotel. The room had some furnishings that seemed a little cheap, along with gifts you could purchase in the room, which were a bit tacky. The carpet was sticky and there were a few ants, but they don't bother me. The room in general was nothing too really rave about. It didn't feel like it lived up to it's name (The Ritz) The restaurants were really disappointing. The food at the buffet was cheaply done and options had a cafeteria feel to them, so we didn't eat there. We expected more from the dining, something a little more fancy, had a cruise ship feel to it. I don't have much luck with the Ritz, last time I was at one (many, many years ago) for my Birthday I got food poisoning, but Im sure it's fine. If you're looking for location it was great as we did not need to rent a car to do things. I would stay there again if the price was right, but otherwise probably not. The place just needs a few more tweaks to make it right.

Fun girls weekend

The ritz experience was a good one. For the most part we were very pleased with our stay. Hotel room was strangely a wheelchair accessable room with no bathtub regrettably, but had a good pool and ocean view. Housekeeping did a rather lax cleaning service after we slept in. ( basically making the beds only, and did not clean up glasses etc around the room) Pool service was impeccable! And all of the employees were super kind and accommodating. Vibe was nice and relaxing, with live acoustic music by the pool in the afternoon. Constant supply of flavored water and sunscreen by the pool. We had lunch one day and an afternoon snack the next. Food was average, especially for the price. Location was great, right in the middle of things, but area just in front of the hotel was a little run down with closed storefronts and graffiti.

Best place to stay in SoBe

This hotel is located in the best part of the south beach. The rooms are large and clean. In addition, rooms are cleaned twice daily. The hotel is conveniently located at the beach, but the pool is even better!! The worst part is the parking. The only available parking is valet, and the charge is outrageous ($36+tax). Also, every time you pick up the car several people come around you, and are looking for a tip which makes you uncomfortable. Overall it was a good experience.
