Recent guest reviews

Great staff, very helpful and friendly, hotel close to everything

This was my second time staying at this hotel. I enjoyed it. They upgraded our room to allow for 3 of us. It was clean and they fixed our toilet immediately as it was not working upon arrival. John at concierge was great! He was very helpful with activities and nightlife. Unfortunately, one of the managers questioned us about being guests when we were having drinks on the patio portion by Collins Street. He only asked us, and no other people sitting outside. This rubbed me the wrong way.

Wife and I spent the weekend here July 1 - July 4 and had a blast! Room was spacious and clean; staff were very friendly; and everything was within walking distance (beach; shops; restaurants; etc). Highly recommend it!

Surprised my husband for his birthday with a trip to South Beach. We thoroughky enjoyed our stay here and loved the roof top pool! The bar staff at the pool kept us with drinks in our hands and was always so polite. This will be our go to hotel from now on when we visit! Five stars across the board!

My partner and I booked a trip to South Beach to celebrate his 30th and my graduation from grad school. This was the perfect hotel to balance relaxation/decompression with fun and nightlife. The room was great! The staff was great! The roof top is perfect, and the beach is 5 minutes away. David was so incredibly helpful in directing us to all the great places to eat. The rooftop staff made us really feel like pampered guests. It was incredible. Everyone on staff really went out of their way to make us feel like The Hotel was ours to use for the week.

We stay there for 3 days. The hotel and room were super clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The happy hour is amazing with great prices. I definitely recommend The Hotel of South Beach.

Great overall beds comfortable showers very nice. Close to beach second floor you can hear music on weekends

I had a wonderful stay at the hotel. From the staff being so helpful and polite. To the cleansiness of the rooms. Down to the lobby and bar area. Everything and everyone was outstanding and made our stay very comfortable!!!

Everyone who worked at the hotel was very pleasant. The food we had was good, not great, but good! Our room was nicely decorated and comfortable. Great shower! What we did not like was how LOUD whatever was going on above us EVERY morning was. We were in room 101 on the first floor and directly above us there must have been some sort of staff room or maid room or supply closet, we have no idea but every morning we woke up to what sounded like people running back and forth one day.... and then the next like they were doing hammering and construction above us.... and then again like people were jumping up and down on beds. Listen, we enjoyed our stay and EVERYTHING else so it wasn't even worth complaining about while there... everyone was so nice and helpful. but man.... that was not how we wanted to wake up.

Excellent service. The facility was great. Walking distance to EVERYTHING. Great food. Great drinks.

We arrived very late 9pm and were only staying the night. The decor was very retro and at first that worried me but realized it was lovely and clean. Luis was amazing. He gave us a room right on ocean ave, late check out, use of the facilities all of the next day and let us park our car in the garage all of the next day. It was perfect!

This was my first trip to Miami, and I am really glad I stayed at the Hotel of South Beach. The hotel's location is perfect. Super close to the beach, and tons of restaurants, shops and bars nearby. And the staff at the hotel were super friendly. They always greeted me with a smile, and were super helpful during my stay there. The best is this guy named David who works at the concierge. Very hospitable and very helpful. The room was pretty spacious, and the housekeeper always made it look nice and clean. Just wanna say thank you guys at the Hotel of South Beach for making my stay so comfortable and enjoyable. If I do come back and visit Miami again, I will definitely stay at your hotel again. For sure.

The experience was great, and I would absolutely recommend. The hotel was clean, staff friendly and it was very affordable. Great deal

The hotel was great could have been better if the pool was opened when I got there. They was fixing the pool so was only able to go one night but the rooftop pool was beautiful

Staff are so friendly and eager to help and knowledgeable of the area. Room and all amenities very clean.

Great location, nice room, clean. It's so nice to have a rooftop pool (that overlooks the ocean) with a little bar. We would buy pastry and coffee and bring it back to the hotel to have it up there, then go for a dip before heading to the beach. The location is AMAZING. The staff are courteous. Good value. I would definately stay here again (again, I LOVE the pool -- it's little, but a nice feature).

My fiancé and I had a wonderful time at The Hotel and will only be staying there in the future when visiting south beach. When we arrived 3 hrs before check in they first offered to hold our baggage until our room was ready, but at the same time looked for other availabilities and within 5 minutes told us that another room was already available and gave us a free upgrade to have it. The bell boy was helpful with our luggage and gave recommendations for local eats/drinks that really panned out. The room was nice and spacious, the shower/garden bath was very spacious with a great shower head and temperature. It overlooked a quieter section of Collins street, with good blinds and street sound control. Wifi was very free and good. TV channels were more than enough. It was a 30 sec walk to ocean ave and probably 2-3 min to reach the water. The rooftop pool was wonderful with a number of beach chairs with a good sea view and shade covered areas as well... There was also a fully stocked bar there. The downstairs bar was good too and we got two complimentary drinks as well as a good happy hour, 50 off drinks I recall.

The hotel staff was great and the rooftop pool was awesome. It's a great location however you do have to cross the street to get to the beach but chairs and towels are provided by the hotel. There is a half off happy hour between 5-8pm during the week not sure about the weekends.

Fantastic. Although I was concerned prior to the trip that it would be raining the entire time of my trip, the weather cleared up quickly and I was able to get outside and enjoy the remainder of my stay

Great price for the stay! Employees were a pleasure to work with! I certainly will be returning for another visit
