“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

Stayed here for 3 nights. Found it to be very good. Room is a good size with open plan living room and kitchen, and separate bed room. Kitchen was well equipped.

There is no restaurant in the hotel but plenty of restaurants nearby. Location is absolutely great at one end of South Beach but within easy walking distance to all the action.

Beach is just across the road and easily accessible.

Close enough to the "historic" drive, but also to the Espanola and Lincoln pedestrian streets, for shopping and dining. Staff very helpful.
Parking overnight is very expensive.

went down for the South Beach food and Wine festival and couldn't have had a better beach front/ocean view location Historic boutique type hotel doesn't say hgvc ( except on the glass doors Historic name is Ocean Plaza and Mc Alpin it is actually 2 hotels next to each other. It is on the far north end of south beach off of 14th street. Would stay there again in a heartbeat Bell hop Alexander is super helpful and a throw back to the old days when service with a smile many something!!!

Date of Stay: December 2011
Room: The room was very clean and comfortable.
Front Desk: The staff was VERY courteous and helpful. What was not expected but GREATLY appreciated was that with an overnight flight, we were able to have an early morning check-in. Thank you, Hilton Grand Vacations Club at South Beach!!
Location: All I have to say is location, location, location... In the heart of South Beach we were across the street from the beach and walking distance to some wonderful restaurants and bars. My husband and I took an Art Deco tour and a Miami Culinary tour with this visit. Both of these tours originated a few blocks away from this Vacation Club.
Overall: My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hilton Grand Vacations Club at South Beach. Because of the location and service, we are looking forward to staying at this property again in the near future. Thank you for the lovely stay, Hilton Grand Vacations Club at South Beach.

Perfect location on Ocean Drive in South Beach; walking distance to beach, shopping and restaurants. Kitchenette is great for a few days stay and bedrooms in the 2 BR suite are separated by the living space for privacy. Staff was very friendly, and helpful.

Room Tip: Noise was not a problem as with many hotels in cities.

My wife and I spent several nights in a 1-bedroom in January 2012. Room was nice, with all of the amenities of a suite (fridge, stove, dishwasher). The carpet had a stain near the entrance but the room was clean. Saw some very small ants on the counter - made sure to remove food and all seemed OK thereafter. The elevators are small and slow in both buildings, but they work - which is what matters. The is a (free) laundromat in the basement - we used it once and all was fine. The mattress was OK - I was expecting a bit better, but hey - everything else (courteous staff, perfect location, etc) more than compensates. We would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room that is not at the front of the hotel - Ocean Drive can be a bit noisy...
