I stayed in a "king ocean view" suite with my daughter during her March Break. The hotel's expansive lobby is stark but striking. In addition to offering free wi-fi for its guests, there are also computers available for use in the lobby. The hotel website's photos are entirely representative of the property. The view from our oceanview suite was magnificent. Bedding is very comfortable, including the sofabed. Despite the efforts of the housekeeping staff, the off-white furnishings and carpet in our room were somewhat stained and seem an impractical choice for a busy hotel. I had requested a quiet room location and we did not hear a sound from other guests during our stay.
Front desk staff were pleasant and efficient at check-in and check-out. The omnipresent doormen were very helpful collecting our luggage on arrival, storing it until our room was ready and promptly delivering it to our room after we checked in. They were also skilled at controlling the taxi traffic ensuring that we never waited long for a cab.
We ate lunch and breakfast at the hotel's Chez Gaston and, although not inexpensive, we were very pleased with the quality of the food and the service on both occasions.
The beach-level pool area is beautiful and well kept. The unobtrusive pool attendants are always ready with fresh towels, too. But the real reason for staying at this property is its beachfront location! The hotel has direct access to the spectacular beach. Beach loungers and umbrellas are available for an extra charge. Once again, the beach staff were courteous and very helpful in setting up the requested items.
There are really only other hotels within easy walking distance from this hotel. They offer other dining options but shopping and other attractions in South Beach are only a short cab ride away.
I would certainly stay at the Grand Beach Hotel again and highly recommend it to those looking for a quiet, beachfront hotel within easy reach of South Beach.
