Very nice hotel for the price we paid. The rooms aren't super luxurious, but they are clean, comfortable, and serve its purpose. The hotel is near everything: the beach, the Clevelander (which is next door and has an always busy bar/restuarant), clubs, and other restaurants/hotels. They also provide free Wi-Fi. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. I would...

The staff at the Essex has superior and friendly service. I would love to be back there now!! I have not had a vacation in many years, I am glad it was a vacation worth waiting for at the Essex. The location has easy access to the beach, bars, restraurants and a bike/walking trail.

I was referred to the Essex House by a friend who travels to South Beach often. I have stayed in South Beach at the Blue Moon (nice), Beacon (nice), Avalon (OK) and Boulevard (the WORST), and the the Essex was the best for the money.

This hotel has a nice vibe, really friendly staff, small bathrooms, no in room refrig or ice machine, but the location is great! The sister hotel (the Clevelander) is directly behind the Essex House, and they have a big outdoor bar and live music (although it's hip-hop style music). The Essex House has a free happy hour with beer and...

We have been to South Beach many times, decided to give Essex House a try after reading good reviews. Loved it! Perfect location-near beach without being right on noisy Ocean Dr. Got upgraded to a suite (so I can't comment on the standard rooms) which was very spacious, and located off a quiet, private courtyard. Amazing bathroom, unfortunately the enormous...
