The Hotel of South Beach

Recent guest reviews

Great hotel close to everything.The rooftop is great and convenient

We spent 6 nights here. The hotel was beautiful. The rooftop pool had a breathtaking view of Ocean Drive and the beach. The staff were very accommodating and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay. They offered advice of the places to avoid and the most see attractions as well as the best places to take in great authentic food. Happy hour twice daily offered reasonably priced drinks as well as decent food. The room itself was clean and comfortable with a king sized bed. It was decorated in the contemporary art deco style that most of south beach sports. This will be the hotel we choose when we come back as we felt at home and really liked the location to the beach and all of south beach amenities. We don't have one bad thing to day about The Hotel of South Beach!

What a great experience! A hotel built in 1939 has all the updated furnishings to reflect that era. It is nice to stay in a hotel that has only 60 or so rooms, because staff is geared for fewer guest. The hospitality of all the staff was great!!! Everyone made the stay a great experience. The rooftop pool and bar was great, great place to watch the sunrise. Would recommend this hotel for your stay. They even replenish your towels in the early evening

Hotel is very close to south beach. The staff is super nice. The bottle water and fruit is provided at lobby at free of charge which is great!

For me, this hotel really sets a high bar for all the surrounding hotels. EVERY single employee was amazing. My room was exactly what I paid for, had all the basics I needed. They would also deliver extra towels at night if needed. Their pool is located on the 4th floor and has chairs and cabanas FOR FREE, it's simply on a first come first serve basis. We had brunch here as well, and the food was delicious!! The lobby is so nice. My one and only complaint was that their elevator was out of service, and we stayed on the 3rd Fl. They helped us with our luggage to the room. Even that little mishap does not make me bump them down to 4 stars. I can't rave enough about their service. Dave the concierge was AMAZING, he'll give you the must visit places and they all lived up to his hype. Before I forget, you get TWO complimentary beach chairs and towels with the 8th st stand. The hotel is central to everything, right across the street from wet willies and this great Cuban restaurant. AND TO TOP IT OFF: if you have a late flight the day you check out, you can use ALL their facilities for that entire day(strict check out at 12pm, so that's what we did).I will be staying here next time I visit!!

Excellent location on the beach - oceanfront view - hotel staff very friendly and pleasant - pool on the rooftop was so awesome with bar and drinks available

This was my first time in Miami and I chose the Hotel of South Beach for its accessibility to South Beach and the beautiful rooftop pool area. It was exactly how I imagined- I spent the majority of my stay in one of the cabanas by the rooftop pool! The rooftop pool also has beverage and dining options, in addition to a bar and restaurant on the ground floor. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating. My departing flight was not until late in the evening and they stored my luggage and let me stay by the pool until time to go. The location is also great- close to South Beach (less than a 5 minute walk) and also very close to nightlife and shopping areas in Miami Beach. I hope to return to the Hotel of South Beach very soon!

Stay was pleasant,staff was helpful and friendly. Although one morning it took over an hour for valet to retrieve our car. All in all a pleasant stay. Would recommend the hotel.

Nice and helpful staff. Walk right out to beach park. Need to make inside access to main building. Have to walk around

Nice hotel wer happy to stay at the hotel very clean ,good location the only problem was the guy at the counter we are latinos and the treatment to us was different than other races ,rude unfriendly so be aware .and is ironic because hes latino too but the rest of the staff are very nice people.

This hotel was great. The staff members were very nice. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, everything is in walking distance including the beach.

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.
