Dream South Beach

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Spent 4 nights at this hotel last week. It was fabulous! The location was excellent, friendly staff, beautiful room, beautiful rooftop pool and steps from the beach. Will definitely return.

The location is amazing, the staff is soooo friendly, and the room is awesome. I always stay here when I come to Miami, and I won’t stay anywhere else.

Pictures are deceptive, thie king room is tiny, poorly lit and there is no closet or drawers to speak of. Reception is snobby and there is no view and hardly any windows.

Great location for South Beach, one block over and you’re there at the beach. The room was smaller than expected but clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Try the lobster taco at their hotel restaurant - other tacos were decent too. We would come back.

A friend and I stayed at this hotel for almost a week and loved it. The hotel room was cleaned twice and that included a turn down service. Each night the staff lowered the blinds, cleaned, and even leave water. We called them the Water Fairies because we always needed the water in the morning. The location is perfect for staying in south beach. We walked to activists, restaurants, and shops. The roof top pool was beautiful. It was nice to hVe the option to pool instead of beach. The staff was also great there. Famous was very attentive and pleasant. We enjoyed the happy hour specials at the bar. I would absolutely stay at the hotel again!

Was given an upgraded room at check-in which was nice. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is close to the beach. I love the sky bar pool it is very cosy

Clean, close to the beach. Food right downstairs. Close to the shops. Versace mansion was my neighbor. Beautiful decor. Pool above and fabulous. Great place to stay!!

Great time in Miami and Dream is a sweet boutique hotel right in the middle of the action!

If there were a way to give it less than one star, I would. The room smelled of cigarettes even though it was a “no smoking room” with a notice that if you smoke in this room you would be fined $250. The floor was filthy and gritty. Could not walk barefoot in the room. The room was dark and noisy as hell. You can hear all the street traffic as well as everything going on in adjoining hotel rooms. I felt like I was actually in the same room as my neighbors.

Great location and friendly staff. Clean rooms. Great service

Elegant renovation, good location All better than expected

Front desk was excellent and very friendly. Rooms were very clean, well decorated but a bit small. Very close to the beach and walking distance to many restaurants and tourist streets.

We could hear EVERYTHING from our room -- this included waking up one morning to our very loud neighbors in the room next door having very loud sex. The restaurant downstairs was blasting music until 11:00 or 12:00 at night. It was so loud the bed was literally vibrating from the bass. The hotel staff were extremely rude. The maid kicked us out of our room when we were cleaning (usually when you are in the room and the cleaning crew arrives, they offer to come back at another time). The staff on the roof and int the restaurant downstairs were extremely unprofessional. The waiter at the restaurant hustled us out of the restaurant despite the fact we were not finished with our meal simply because two people at our table had not ordered food. When we complained to the front desk about our treatment, they tried to make up for it by sending us free drinks so at least they did that. That being said, I would NEVER stay here again and would NEVER recommend this hotel to ANYONE. It was far from the relaxing South Beach vacation I had hoped for.

Ok - here are the pluses about this hotel. 1. location, 2.design is both a plus and minus, 3. Famous at the rooftop pool is the BEST, so is Marten. This hotel could be a gem, but the staff is as cold as ice, they are absent and dont offer any insight, help at all. The design of the rooms is small, The King room can barely fit 2 people with 2 pieces of luggage. The bed was not the best. I expected more from the hotel.

For the same money we could have not chosen a better hotel overall at all

Fabulous romantic escapade within South BEach half block away from beach sea veiw from pool area (4th floor0 Staff is spuebr, roms are very very sensuous

A great experience. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and attentive. Smiles and yeses go a long way.

Enjoyed this property and the staff were especially pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately we weren't there to take advantage of the beach chairs that you're automatically charged for. Was also surprised to find see-through shower walls!! Yes, you can see the person showering if you happen to walk into the guest room when they're in the bathroom. Don't think I knew that in advance. Also, unfortunately many of the umbrellas on the roof top/pool area were broken (we were told due to storms that had come through a month before). It was too hot for me to sit in the sun (no shade was available), so I couldn't enjoy the pool area. Hope this gets fixed soon for other guests! Good location.

After paying for the hotel via Orbitz a $300 hold was still required as per hotel policy.

I had a great stay room was clean and it was really close to all the social sites I like the roof top pool as well i stayed in room 275 I have no complaints

Thank you for taking time to leave us feedback. We apologize for the experience that you had with us as that is not the standard that we strive for everyday. We ensure you that we will present your concerns to the appropriate department regarding our service to ensure that this does not happen again. Regarding our room style we incorporate a boutique hotel style as we are a historic art deco building however we do have rooms that you can upgrade to that have much more space. For the lighting we also incorporate a mood lighting style but you are able to utilize a lamp if the lighting is not sufficient. We hope that you may return with us whenever you are in the south beach area.

Thank you for taking time to provide us feedback, this is not the standard that we strive for everyday, we want to ensure that our guest are comfortable from the moment they walk into our hotel, we clearly did not do that in this instance and for that we sincerely apologize. All of your concerns have been brought to the attention of the appropriate departments to ensure that this does not happen moving forward, we can see that this has been a very unpleasant experience for you but we ask that we may be given a second chance to create the experience that you deserve. We hope to have you return when ever you are in the south beach area.
