“Ok hotel just at the Ocean drive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

Feels a bit out of fashion and in the whole hotel there is a funny smell which they try to mask with incents. Very nice staff! No swimmingpool, no gym and the restaurant is very clear they do not have anything to do with the hotel in the same building...

We live about 30 miles from South Beach and this is always our first hotel choice. The way that this beautiful property was renovated is amazing. Each room that we have been is unique. We have stayed in rooms in the front, side and now the back. Never were bothered by any noise. If you sleep that lightly than maybe you should skip South Beach.
We booked the cheapest room that we could for a Jimmy Buffet concert weekend. The room had a view of the parking garage but it was large and so pretty. It also gave us a view of our new car.
Only thing that did not give this review a 5 star is that the drawers on the side of the bed are not attached to the walls as they should be. When I opened the drawer after I put my clothes in it, it crashed down on my fingers. This is like a law suit waiting to happen.

Just watch your fingers and enjoy this beautiful hotel with wonderful service! We were in room 317.

I stayed at the Cardozo on two separate nights in late January 2012 and I thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality.

The location is perfect on ocean drive across the street from the beach and around the corner from hot spots like mansion and cameo.

Front desk staff is friendly and efficient with a super quick check in. Jan the GM was not only on property but greeted us at time of check out.

The room was great and beds were super clean and comfortable. Wooden walls with white accents are sleek. Flat screens are housed in cool built in wall cabinets.

There are queens like room 315 pictures, kings (321, nice corner room with larger bath) and doubles I think too.

The queen was intimate with a small ottomon for additional seating. The king is definitely larger... The room, the bath, the closet (with robes and safe) ... And in this room there is a beautiful wooden chair too.

Minibar contains basic beverages at reasonable prices. There is a restaurant but a multitude of dining options beyond ocean drive.

A great option for any south beach visitor. Good value as well!

Is not the first time we go to Miami Beach, and we know that the hotels on Ocean Drive are not always well preserved but compensate by location. So when we made the reservation at the Cardozo Hotel, did not expect much, but what surprised us Cardozo, the rooms are very comfortable and wood decor was very nice, service is very friendly, the only thing that is desired is the size of the bathroom but the rest are to be congratulated!

Room Tip: preferred the third floor because it is all restored.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in South Beach. Location was very good and the room was fine. Unfortunately there was no coffemaker in the room. Since the restaurants in Miami do not open until 8 or 8.30 for breakfast, we did not have a chance to have a tea or coffe until that time. Having jet lag we were not able to sleep very long. We would have prefered to have a coffemaker instead of the cd player without ceds that was at the room.
Every thing appeared to be overpriced in South Beach, especially food. The ambiance is however nice in the evening with lots of people walking around and fine latin music coming out of the restaurants. At the time we stayed at the hotel (low season) we found the price for the room Ok. We found however that the price of the room in high season jumps almost 100%.
We think that in high season the price does is not good value for money. If we come back to Miami agin in the low season, we might stay again at the Cardozo.

We stayed in room 207, which cost $212.33 + $26.01 (tax)/ night. I reserved on expedia. The room was really great - big enough, nice bed, clean, nice bathroom, view of the ocean. The staff of the hotel was really nice and helpful. Our only complaint is the noise from the music at the cafe/bar/restaurant in the hotel, which was easily heard in our room until after midnight. The hotel itself in a nice art deco hotel in the heart of south beach. We were there in November and the the weather was good - warm enough to walk around in shorts and to go swimming in the afternoon. It didn't rain in the time we were there, but early november is still the wet season.

We stayed here for two nights prior to a cruise & one on our return. Cant really fault it. We had 2 different rooms on floor 3, the later being on Ocean Drive. Yes it was a little noisy but that wasnt a problem. Both rooms were really comfortable with loads of space & the later had a great walk in shower as well as a faux four poster. Wifi worked & free, not like rip off UK.
Front of house guy was superb, couldnt do enough for us. Beyond helpful.
I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
Restaurant/cafe out front ok but probably much the same as most of the rest. Once you've had your fill of the zoo that is Ocean Drive go and get cheaper & better food elsewhere
