If you are going to stay in South beach this is the place to stay. It is in the middle of everything and anything. Valet your car and start the party. Only a straight 5 miute walk to an awsome beach, awsome restaurants and stores a short walk away, You can't beat the hotels restaurant for breakfast $3.95, lunch $8.95...

To call the Colony Hotel a 3-star hotel is a joke! When we arrived we had to wait for half an hour before we could get our room. The walls, floors, dados, windows, carpets were all worn-out, the doors didn't close properly, the linen was dirty, we didn't get the room cleaned while we were there, the internet didn't work,...

We were a bit nervous pulling up to the hotel because of the comparatively inexpensive internet rate, not yet knowing the hotel, and thinking possibly the cheap rate was due to sub par...

If you want to experience South Beach, this hotel should be considered. Across the street from the lively section of the beach, surrounded by great restuarants and bars, and the shopping district is right behind the property. Our room was clean and free of defects. Check in and check out was seemless and the staff was attentive when we asked...
