Just amazing! Definitely there will be another time!

WARNING! DOUBLE RESORT FEES WILL BE CHARGED IF THERE ARE MORE THAN 2 PEOPLE IN A ROOM. This is the main reason for my overall review rating. I work in the legal field so I ALWAYS read the fine print. I understood that a resort fee would be charged per ACCOMMODATION, NOT PER PERSON BASED ON DOUBLE OCCUPANCY. I booked this hotel through Orbitz and was given the total for the resort fee that I would have to pay at the hotel, apart from the actual booking charges - which I was fine with. I arrived to the hotel and the woman at the front desk, who was very nice, told me the resort fee was double because I had 4 people in my room. Basically, there's a resort fee for every two people per room. What was supposed to be $129.96 (21.66 resort fee per day for the 6 days we were staying) turned out to be double at $259.92. Orbitz outlined $129.96 in the total when I booked the room for 4 people. I checked for the Orbitz confirmation email to show the front desk person and she told me that they base their fees on double occupancy. I was so irritated but paid anyways because I had a long flight in from Los Angeles. After I checked in and paid, I contacted Orbitz and complained because the information I was given at the front desk, wasn't outlined anywhere in their fine print on Orbitz. The excuse the Orbitz rep gave me was that the hotel was allowed to charge fees outside of what was outlined in the Orbitz website during booking and in the confirmation emails Orbitz sent me.

Small elevator, wish there was pool, and needs microwave in room ir ar least a community one..

Beautiful, minimalist, clean, great location, and excellent service. Loved that you get two free drinks.

Good hotel in a great area. Thank you for the experience.

You get what you pay for. It's a nice hotel, great location. Staff was excellent! Beware of hidden fees you have to pay at hotel. Specially when booking through third party website, breakfast could've been better, but over all we enjoyed our stay.

Pros: Complimentary Breakfast, close to beach, beautifully decorated lobby, provided beach towels, complimentary welcome drink, did provide bottles of water, daily, staff was nice Cons: Only 1 elevator, rooms were small, bathroom EXTREMELY small (smallest hotel bathroom i've ever been in, you can literally use the bathroom n wash your hands at the same time), overall look of hotel did not match the beautiful lobby, no microwave, no drawers to put clothing Would rate this hotel a 2.5

This is my 4th time staying @ this hotel. I will always return

Excellent location, and staff. From the front desk to the maids and the bartentenders very welcoming. The only con would be the A/C. It needs better circulation. A ceiling fan would be great.

Actually works for renovating one of the two buildings.

I ll definetly have the president which is also associated to the penguin on Ocean drive on my list of prefers hotels.

Great little hotel, the staff is so nice and the food at the bar is great. The bathroom are a bit too small not much room to move.

The hotel is okay but wish it was a pool and had a little entertainment during the day. Staff was wonderful. And the hotel was very close to the strip and beach.

this hotel is very close to beach, no parking available, u will have to park at nearby public parking else pay 42$ for valet parking, rooms/bath are only ok, very small and not very clean, not a good value for money overall, one big plus is location, right next to beach

Very accessible to restaurants and the beach. Price was higher than normal because of its location. It is a less chaotic. The bathroom was very tiny. My husband seen a cockroach in the bathroom when we got to our room on the first day after check in. Cleanliness needs improvement. It looked clean but if a cockroach was roaming around that means it is not that clean. I love the room design though. But I would say the pictures are nicer. We booked two double beds for me and my husband and second room for the kids. The room looks the same but our room did nt have a table. Luckily we had a second bed so we ended up putting our wallets and keys there. Breakfast was more like snacks. muffins, coffee, and juice. There's boiled egg and sauteed potatoes that had no taste. Overall the ambiance in the lobby and our rooms were nice.

Hotel wasn't bad for the price. Rooms were clean.

Didn't even get the correct room. On top of it they gave us a room that belonged to someone else where all their stuff was out. Bad security !!!

Walls are very thin, you can hear everything in the room next to you.

Ok wasn't that bad just the rooms and bathroom and little small na a big deal

First of all, the location is perfect. South beaches, bars and local restaurants are all of easy access. The room is clean and well prepared. The only little thing is that wifi sometimes was not very good. Overall it is good place for the price.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for choosing the President Hotel, and taking the time to write a review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location, the breakfast and the ambience. We are terribly sorry that you found your room small. We do have five different room categories including Penthouse with terrace and Collins Ave. view. It may be worth exploring an upgrade on a future stay with us. We appreciate the comments that you have shared, and we certainly look forward to your return. Kind regards
