The National Hotel, An Oceanfront Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Down for a family get together. Pleasant room. Staff very outgoing and friendly. Halls smelled of disinfectant for two days

Every day I left my room, when I came back the key wouldn't work and they would only give me bath towels. No washcloths or hand towels for some reason, no explanation at all. Every day for 3 days.The room was clean but nasty blood looking stains on the bench at the end of the bed. Nice pool and great location were the best things. Won't return. Natulius definitely better!!

Very clean and friendly staff, def enjoyed my stay

We enjoyed the pianist Freddie. Great pianist & singer.

great hotel with great amenities. Historical property which is a boost and the pool is extraordinary.

Beautiful hotel on sunny Miami Beach. I love the charm of the older buildings there. The National fit right in. Basically felt like a throwback to the 1930's with all the modern amenities and comforts. Would definitely stay there again!

The only problem (besides having to leave when your stay ends...), is the big towel issue, because they usually give you less than needed (we are a party of four, and we got almost every day, just two).

Had a few issues with hotel amenities and house keeping which were never really resolved

Front desk staff very nice and professional, when they notice my birthday was the following day they sent a bottle of sparkling wine to my room. This is my 2nd time here.

muy buen hotel con un servicio increible y las habitaciones son fenomenales le doy 5 estrellas a este hotel excellent

It was ok. Hotel smells really good. Jose was very nice and friendly

Good for a family as long as you don't need a lot of room. From front of house to concierge to poolside, everyone was warm, friendly, and accommodating. Could have had a few more people working there. Kids (5 & &) loved the pools and beach access.

No coffee in room, no coffee in lobby...front desk forgot to alert me when room was reday..kept having to bug them. Faciltities fine, Could be tweaked to really be a good hotel.

The National is a beautiful old Deco hotel that is on the nice part of South Beach (away from annoying hawkers), very close to Lincoln Road, and a short walk to Ocean Drive, if you really find it necessary to go there.

Very friendly. Decent room. Just felt room bath size towels beginning to fray a few had holes. Some days the housekeeping left plastic cups on desk didn't throw them out. Would return because of location and friendly staff.

It was an great trip for me and my friend. The staff is excellent. The long swimming pool is a little bit too cold. This is sad because no one is inside this pool. But this is the only negative point. Everything else was perfect. The hotel and rooms were clean.

From Anna aesthetic point of view the hotel is picture perfect it's full of such charm and original detail is a beautiful experience both the interior spaces as well as the backyard and pool area. When I reserved it came with two breakfasts which made it a homerun as it was really delicious and a great variety. My fiancé wanted a bathtub in our room did not have one so they quickly changed rooms and made us very happy and even added a bottle of champagne to our new room.

i had a terrible allergic reaction to something on the bed, not sure if its what they wash the sheets with or if it was bed bugs or what. my body is covered in bumps! and i made 3 trips to Walgreens trying to get different allergy meds to calm down the itching. i could even go to the beach the 3 days I was there :( I was so uncomfortable the whole time, I didn't even get a good sleep.

I had to change rooms 3 times. The first room was in the stair hallway and smelled like mildew, the next room had bugs in the shower then the manager upgraded us to q suite and the suite was nice. The staff was friendly.

This hotel was picture perfect; I had a city view room with nice open windows, very modern bathroom, amazing comfy king size bed. The hotel staff is immaculate, so friendly as there to attend to your needs. This hotel has a great pool area; And the staff on the beach are ALSO great, beach is in walking distance.! Overall GREAT
