President Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

It was a fabulous Location. The resort fee is a bit ridiculous. I was charged a resort fee for a whole day when I didn't check in til about 7pm...so the things that were to be included in the resort fee couldn't be taken advantage of. I also wasn't told that they required another $250 deposit upon check in. Every night after about 9 we couldn't get into the building, so we had to go to the front desk...these were minor annoyances...the stay for the most part was enjoyable.

great, everything was perfect and i will go again maybe this year

Big Rooms. Nice Hotel near rest pubs and night life

This hotel did not meet my standards! They call themselves a resort and add an extra $21 per night for resort fees. This hotel was by no means a resort! There is no beach access, pool, or even workout area... What would qualify them as a resort? We supposedly had what they call a penthouse suite! It was nothing more than a room with an air mattress type of bed and a bathroom with only a shower (no tub)! Did I mention we couldn't even get a washcloth? The hotel is old and run down and reminded me of an efficiency apartment in the projects! The hotel staff was very friendly and the food in the restraunt was pretty good!

The best of President Hotel is undoubtedly the location, over Collins av., at 2 blocks from the beach. The room was large, the bathroom was rather small, but comfortable. What not was a desk and chair to place a notebook. The air conditioning works perfect. Cable TV service very poor, few channels and it was not HD. Breakfast is pretty simple, coffee, tea, milk, toast, some mass, cereals, butter and sweet. There was no fruit or eggs or cold cuts, cheese only. The attention is good, very kindly!

Dear Anonymous , Thank you for taking the time to post the review. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us. We will be renovating our rooms and lobby area in the coming weeks. This should fix any issues with the bathrooms, giving them a better design, and possibly more space.

Dear ash, We greatly appreciate you for taking the time taken in leaving us with your comments. There are a few other options for parking. We do have valet that is at the hotel. It is $40 a day. That way you can go in and out as much as you would like tell noon the next day. If you do not wish to pay the $40 per day for valet we do have the parking garage that is down the street 2 blocks as you stated. Our front desk has been trained to let all our guest know about the options. In addition I will bring up the cleaning to the housekeeping manager.
