“Perfect place for Miami Beach getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

Loved our stay! So convenient to beach, restaurants, shops and more...

Perfect 2-room suite getaway for us and the kids, with kitchenette for snacks and roomy bathrooms and beds.

Staff is so friendly and accomodating also - will definitely go back!

I stayed at the Edgewater in November 2011 but never got around to writing the review. I'm glad I'm taking the time to do it now because the place definitely needs some praise. It's a hidden gem in South Beach and doesn't get enough exposure versus its other counterparts on Ocean Drive.

The hotel features great rooms that well-kept and decorated - definitely more spacious than some of the other places on Ocean Drive.

The staff were top-notch and were very accommodating (I had a couple of packages shipped to the hotel and they held on to them until I checked in). As well, free continental breakfast is served each morning on the terrace - nothing too crazy but still a great way to get your day started without breaking the bank or having to travel to a breakfast joint.

Staying at the hotel means your just steps away from the beach plus I like the fact that it was a little farther along Ocean Drive; slightly removed from the noisy bar area but close enough for convenient access.

If you do end up renting a car, you can likely find metered parking on the street (free at non-peak hours).

If and when I do return to Miami, I will definitely stay the Edgewater again!

Room Tip: Make a special request for an ocean view room if you can.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in March. We struggled up the stairs with our luggage and were expecting help as there was a gentleman standing at the front door, but I guess he worked in the bar or something? We checked in quickly and went to our room which was a fantastic size and very clean. Large TV and great sitting area which was a bonus. Breakfast in the morning was surprisingly good - it was obvious that a lot of effort was put into setting it all up and it was all that we needed. We were really glad that we stayed at the top end of Ocean Drive as the bottom end was so noisy (don't know how anyone in the Clevelander gets any sleep - maybe they don't need it?) and we were closer to Lincoln Mall etc. Would stay here again.

This is a boutique hotel on the beach. The building is older but has loads of character. It is well maintained and has a European atmosphere. The staff was charming, friendly and very helpful.
Daily continental breakfast and happy hour on the roof make this a bargain when compared to the other hotels in the area. My daughter and I were having a girls' weekend and were very happy to have found the Edgewater. I would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Request the oceanview on a higher level.

Our stay here was great. The staff were very friendly and there was Rafael, who hustled day in and day out - getting our doors, beach towels, chairs and anything we pretty much requested. The other staff there were great as well - very accomodating. Rooms were nice, and clean. The bathroom showers, though, didn't have doors so everything got wet including the toilet seat. Other than that, rooms are nice and big. Even though the beach was about 100 meters from the hotel, it didn't matter. And the fact that it was a block or two from all the "action," didn't matter either. I like my sleep just as much as my partying. Overall, great place to stay.

We stayed there for 3 nights in March. Service was great. We arived from a cruise & went to check in at 9am (we planned to drop our luggages). As the room was availalble, we were offered to check in. We had a hude room (honestly it was an appartment +/- 70msq). I found it is was great to have room in front of the beach. Service, room perfect (i am not picky on holidays). Don't expect any other services. They offer coffee in the morning but you don't have classical hotel services. Very nice stay

This is by far the best hotel on Ocean Drive. The service is incredible, and the people who worked there are extremely helpful; especially Kelvin and Rafael. They were very courteous, friendly and gave excellent recommendations on things to do in Miami and places to eat. They were always welcoming and were able to answer any questions we had. The rooms are spacious and clean. The location of the hotel is great as it was on ocean drive, across from the beach and just half a block away from all the entertainment. I would strongly recommend this hotel especially due to the exceptional service we experienced.

Room Tip: Call and book in person.
