The Tides South Beach

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Fantastic piece of South Beach history, super cool vibe, excellent accommodating staff!!!

I was very dissapointed when I was charged $150 for my Service Animal, we stay in many hotels, all over US and first time ever being charged for an service animal. I repeatedly told during the check in and check out,that my dog is an service animal and I was repeatedly told back that they charge the $150 fee no matter what. I would have chosen the hotel again, good location, good rooms for south beach but just for the principle never again!!!!

Perfect stay. Worth the extra amount spent. Conveniently located right on the beach and in very close proximity to all nightclubs, restaurants, bars, etc.

The Tides is a nicely renovated deco classic. This stay was off to a pleasant start, and then we discovered bedbugs! Upon confirming the infestation, the staff refunded our money, but we were on our own to book another hotel (on a very busy ArtBasel weekend).

THE LOCATION IS IN THE HEART OF SOUTH BEACH SO BE PREPARED FOR HIGH ENERGY. THE ROOM AT FIRST SEEMED UN IMPRESSIVE BUT AFTER STAYING THERE A COUPLE NIGHTS IT SEEMED TO GROW ON US AND WAS VERY NICE. MOST IMPRESSIVE WAS THE STAFF THEY COULDN'T HAVE BEEN ANY BETTER, FROM THE FRONT DESK TO THE VALET ALL 5 STAR. I SUGGEST STAYING ON THE UPPER FLOORS AS THE AREA IS VERY ACTIVE TILL THE WE HOURS.

Great staff, very friendly and helpful, especially the front desk and valets. Location optimal for the South Beach Experience. Had a surprisingly good lunch at the spur of the moment poolside.

Location, location, location! The location was amazing! We didn't even touch our car after we parked because we didn't need to. We could walk everywhere we wanted to go. Other people said the room is noisy from outside bar, but the noise level was totally ok even though we stayed on the 3rd floor. (we stayed there during weekdays) The room was really spacious and clean, and the pool was nicely prepared for customers; for example they put towels on the chairs every morning and also put extra towels for people. They also gave us welcome drinks which were nice treat for the hot weather. Only one thing I didn't like was there's no complimentary water bottles in the room. You need to either buy bottles of water from outside or drink the $8 water in the room.

Hospitality was terrific! Room was very accommodating and staff very nice. Seemed that food and beverage was managed by a different department, less tuned in to guests. 4+ star hotel, 3 star F&B.

We stayed here 3 nights and had a great time. The rooms are spacious and yes you have a fantastic ocean veiw. The location is perfect.. 5 min walk to the beach, and since you are right on Ocean Dr. you have access to all the resturants. It does get a bit loud until 10 or 11 from the resturant next door, but it didn't bother us at all. I would stay there again for sure. We did not bring our kids and if we did, they would not have had a good time. The focus on SOBE seems to be the night life.

Awesome location for coming and going to all to spits on south beach or just relaxing in the room or beach. Friendly staff and pleasant stay.

I was very pleased with my stay at this hotel! I have stayed at several hotels on Ocean Drive and this is by far the nicest so far. In fact I think this will always be the hotel I choose. The rooms are twice the size of the almost all the other rooms in the area. Your room stay includes two beach chairs, towels and umbrellas which if purchased alone would cost you arojnd $35 a day.

From the front door to all requests during our stay we found great service and kind attention.
