We arrived with very unpolite taxi driver to hotel. Contrast was huge. Receptionist was polite and smiling. He also helped us to find our room. Room was small but clean and quiet. And hotel locates in heart of Miami Beach. As curiosity we forgot a lot of our clothes in our closet. We called after three days and got all...

I chose this place because of the price point for a medium-tier hotel in the Art Deco district. We stayed 1 night before leaving on a cruise out of Miami. Overall I was extremely pleased with my stay at Jetset Franklin. South Beach is steps away, along with all of the restaurants and nightlife that accompany it. The front desk...

The staff was extremely nice and accommodating.! They went out of their way to make the room special and comfortable. The location is optimal a block over from the beach, right in the center of Miami beach near many restaurants, bars and shops. I'm already planning a return visit in a few months!

Travelling in December with teenagers this hotel was was very spacious, freshly painted and reasonably priced.

The location isn't the only great thing about this hotel. Apart from it being next to the beach and close to many great restaurants, the service at this hotel is amazing. We were immediately greeted and taken care of upon check in. Our bags were taken up to our room for us. Rosie and the rest of the staff were...

Great hotel! Perfect location - just 1 block away from the beach! Lots of restaurants around... Great service, really modern with new apartments and very clean! There is a parking garage with good price ($1 per hour) a few blocks away (on the corner of 7th street and Washington st). Definitely will come back and recommend!

This was the first time I've ever been to Miami and a friend recommended The Franklin Hotel to me. I was not disappointed. The staff was super nice and accommodating and since it's a smaller hotel, they're able to give you a lot of personalized attention. The rooms were newly renovated with a lot of nice modern finishes. My suite...

Really is for younger crowd. Call rooms minimalistic, but really should be 'broke college student - can't afford furniture!' It's quite sad for the older age group I suppose. Not comfortable at all.
