Classic Art Deco hotel operated with modern flair in South Beach, Miami

The Winterhaven Hotel offers true South Beach character. It boasts a prime beachfront spot, souped-up rooms and an inviting front porch corner patio that is especially popular on mellow Miami mornings. Expertly-done Art Deco restoration is noticeable in the cruise ship lobby staircase and perhaps best experienced in the retro, low-seat martini bar. Guests of the Winterhaven Hotel are provided with breakfast, beach chairs, hand-mixed drinks, afternoon snacks and local food and drink discounts that sweeten the deal.

Highlights
  • Near beach and South Beach, Miami nightlife
  • On-site bar/lounge
  • Rooftop sundeck
  • Use the swimming pool at sister hotel Blue Moon
Rooms

The Winterhaven Hotel provides 71 up-to-date rooms on six stories. Those on the top three floors have substantial ocean views from picture windows. Tropical hints include wood blinds, rattan headboards and pineapple yellow walls. Furniture, including king and queen beds, is custom Art Deco style. Wi-Fi, mini-bars, digital laptop safes and beach chairs are provided. Bathrooms feature robes, hairdryers and Bath & Body Works products.

Features

Guests at the Winterhaven Hotel never forget that the famous stretch of South Beach sand is across the street. Gaze at it all day long, starting with a low-key breakfast on the front porch, then sunning on the roof deck, followed by sampling mojitos at the curved black marble-top martini bar under its electric blue neon sign. The stylish nautical two-level mezzanine is a peaceful spot to hang in before embarking on wild nights out in South Beach just a few blocks from the Winterhaven Hotel. Additional amenities include beach towels at the 24-hour front desk, multilingual concierge, discount at a nearby gym, valet parking and same-day dry cleaning.

Winter Haven

It was under construction!!!!!! Service was all over the place. Housekeeping kept forgetting to restock toilet paper, the ice machine had black mold, we had to change rooms because of a broken sink and remodeling noise. Honestly, I should have received a super discount. Uggghhhh...

disappointed

my stay at the winter haven was average renovations were being done on the hotel while i was there. they had no room service no bar nothing on site i had to go outside the hotel to get things that i needed. also there was an ATM machine when i checked in but a couple of days later it was removed i was told by the hotel staff to walk 2 blocks down to go to the nearest ATM. on the website it clearly states that beach chairs and other amenities where available upon checking in to the hotel however when i arrived beach chairs and WiFi we not available it is very disappointing not getting the services the website claims to provide i will not be returning to this hotel the location of the hotel was the only good thing it was across the street from the beach

Keep an Eye on Your Valuables!!!!

While staying at the hotel a bag of Hard Rock Cafe shirts was taken from the hotel room. It was there before the cleaning crew came in, it was gone after they left. After realizing the bag was missing, the hotel staff did not want to believe that the cleaning crew took the bag from our room. We had to call the police, file a report, then go back to the hotel staff with the report before they would even think about investigating the incident. So far, it has been a week since we came back from vacation and we have not heard from the hotel.

Good location but no more than 2 stars.

An average 2, 2 1/2 stars. Beautiful pictures on the website, but definitely way different in reality. The only pros are: 1) Location. 2) Fresh orange infused water at the lobby...

Decent hotel for price and location.

Stayed at this hotel 1 night. Pretty decent for the price and location. If you're looking for an inexpensive, clean place to sleep while you're in the middle of the strip then this is the place to be. Ok, so first the negatives: Small rooms with little attention spent on decor. Walls are thin, so you hear everything around you. Bar drinks are expensive ($10-16). Tiny, semi-functional elevator. Nowhere to park; and parking on the street is very deceptive. You have to buy a parking permit and then find a spot which is not posted clearly, or the hotel guy can park you but they charge a lot for valet. Also, there are a lot of bums outside the hotel due to the fact that the beach showers and bathrooms are directly across the street. So now for the positives: Location is ideal for beachgoers and partiers. We never had to drive anywhere. Its close to the shopping district but no too far from the clubs either. Restaurants are readily available within a few blocks radius. Very quiet too. All the drunks and partiers are 5 blocks to the south. From the rooftop, the entire metro area can be seen and since you're right on the beach, you have a front row seat to the most beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean. The bedding and pillows are very comfortable and fresh. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was basic, but the food looked fresh and plentiful. All around decent hotel, but nothing fancy.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

All the clubs and nice restaurants of SOBE are within 5 blocks or so along Ocean Dr and Collins. DO NOT drive in these areas at night if at all possible. Very slow and congested.

Friendly staff, good location/value

Great location. Nice and friendly staff. Rooms are pretty small. Good breakfast. Some of things don't look that great... and need to be fixed/changed/better cleaned (like the elevator). Overall, it offers a good value.
