Stayed here with a friend in November 2012. The hotel is in a very good location in Miami beach. We were greeted by Austin and Brad who were fantastic in helping us settle in and also answer any questions we had. The rooms were very spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel is linked with the Clevelander...

My girlfriends and I were so happy with the Essex House! The hotel was so cute, very clean and the staff was so friendly! We loved the little details such as how they delivered a bottle of wine and chocolate covered oreos to our room one evening, had the free happy hour, and how the cleaning staff lined up all...

I loved the location and the Zen Sai restaurant. J Jordan was one of the nicest hotel clerks that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He helped us with information about places to go , shop, and eat. The happy hour and complimentary breakfast were great. It was very clean and extremely quiet for the area we were...

The location is perfect. The staff are wonderful. I especially loved the bartenders and wait staff at their restaurant Zen Sai. Zen Sai has to be one of the best hidden gems in South Beach. They had a great complimentary happy hour and continental breakfast at the hotel. Cannot wait to go back!

I stayed at the Essex for 4 nights and it was excellent. The staff is very helpful. Nice complimentary happy hour (beer/wine/sushi) daily and continental breakfast of fruit, croissants, coffee etc every morning. Rooms are small but comfortable. My only complaint would be the bathrooms. They are VERY small and in need of upgrades. Essex House is quiet and relaxing...

I cannot begin to express how happy I was to have chosen the Essex House for my birthday spot. Everything was impeccable from the Bell Hop to the Front desk staff. Concierge was aweseome - shouts out to Brad - the number one Rockstar Host/concierge in AMERICA! Brad catered to my every need and went beyond the call of duty...

Have stayed in a bunch of hotels in the South Beach area. The Essex House can't be beat for the price. I was pleased from the moment I arrived and was greeted by very pleasant staff at check in.

The Essex house is in a great spot on Collins avenue which is close to south beach, shopping and lots of restaurants and bars. The rooms are small but comfortable and clean. The only negative is the air conditioning system is really old and really noisy which made it difficult to sleep. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel...
