Everything at the hotel was wonderful. The bed was hard that is the only complaint I have. The rooms are clean and each a different clever design. The hotel staff is amazing. Helpful and friendly and willing to help you find any place your looking for and accommodate your needs. Not to mention they are just cool people. I also absolutely loved the showroom in my room. It was perfect after a day at the beach.
The restaurant was fabulous as well. The staff is friendly and helpful and all of them are pretty easy on the eyes. Brianna the bar tender was amazing. Whipping up fabulous drinks with a smile and girl next door humor. The managers of the restaurant Giuseppe and Richard were very nice. None of that fake friendly crap just nice guys. All in all the stay was amazing and the pelican is the place I will call home in Miami beach. :)

I had such a wonderful time at the Pelican hotel, did stay for 3 nights and 4 days, excellent location directly on Ocean drive super close to the beach, the hotel is great, full of excellent stuff and music - very hip and sexy place, each room is individual decorated and with so much taste and stile, big rooms - large TV's and fast Internet very good food, all day long and sooooo nice stuff, I want to thank Jennifer from front desk - also Robert and Mentore - also Sandra and Pierre from service and Nuria who managed to clean my room every day - and brought me chocolate and made my bed in the evening,.. I do not recall having staid at a better place and I am a very frequent traveler for the last 20 + years,.. for me its the packet that makes the difference - I for example like the showers a lot - super water tossing down as a cascading waterfall - wonderful - extra special !! - I wish I had the money to buy this place !!

thanks again to all the stuff of the Pelican !

Stayed here the first week of April 2012, had a great time! We stayed in the themed room "People from the Fifties" was very clean with cool retro furniture and decor. Although the view was nothing to write home about it was very quiet and toward the middle of the hotel. I recommend a room towards the middle as street noise could be an issue for some folks. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a small issue at check in with being given two double beds instead of a much more preferred queen. Jennifer at the front desk did her majic and got us the bed we wanted. Jennifer was so so helpful and nice to deal with throughout our entire stay!! The Pelican offered free drinks every night between 4 - 6 PM, that was awesome! And for us, having the beach just across the street and with complimentary chairs and cushions was a big bonus as well! I would give this place a big 5 out of 5 stars!!!

The hotel is in the heart of Miami Beach on Ocean Drive. We stayed in the Bamboo room with an Ocean view. It was a nice room, uniquely decorated but the bathroom could have done with a slight update. The room had a large flat screen and good ipod dock. The staff very friendly and helpful. Everytime I had a question or wanted suggestions where to eat etc they were very nice. The food in their restaurant was also nice. I was also impressed by their happy hour for guests - free drinks for 2 hours each day, free sunloungers and beach towels.The only slight downside is you can hear music until about 2am but thats not too late and if you are staying on Ocean Drive, it's to be expected.

Room Tip: the back might be quieter but its lovely to have an ocean view

Check Pelican's Website!!! Looks Unique Right!!! The Experience is Unique As well!!!

The hotel is a small boutique, apparently started by Diesel jeans and the the diesel sense of fun in clothes shows in the way the rooms were designed and maintained.

We stayed in the Viva Las Vegas Room and it was just unique in every sense of way...Vegas theme black & gold and a lot of chrome chic. Rooms were spotlessly clean, the bathrooms were fitted with cool industrial plumbing. The big shower head and fire engine hose type water flow deserves a special mention. There is nothing that we did not like about the room.
The room was quite and shields you from the outside noise. But step out into the Lobby and you are in middle of the Ocean Drive's awesome craziness. The rooms are smoke free (No smoking signs- as opposed to some other claims).

if you want a resort with pool, big lobby and other services this is not the place for you. This is for young at heart, want to be in the middle of the action and don't want to stay at the same drab hotel chain kindaa people. This hotel is basically a ocean drive restaurant and fun clean rooms and nothing more than that.

There is nothing pretentious about the place. They are what they claim they are ...a fun hotel right in the middle of all the sobe fun and across from the lummus park beach. To keep you sand free they provide beach towels which are super soft and super clean. Its walking distance from everything that you would ever want to do in Sobe.

Just stay there and have fun in Sobe...The Diesel Way!!!!

Room Tip: Across from beach on the Ocean Drive

Impressive hotel, ltos of rooms, artistically decorated, I stayed in the Best Whore House room and was very funny. Food is also good, and location is fantastic. I would definitely go there again and Miami is always full of charms. Next tie I would like to try a different room.
Restaurant was really nice and the quality of food was delicious; Ocean drive offers lots of restaurants as well and it's all right there in front of the hotel. A must see in Miami.
