“Dependable spot in SOBE”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

This was our second stay at The Hotel and was once again very pleased with the overall accomodations. The location and staff are top knotch. The pool area remains a poplar option over spending time on the beach which is less than one block away. Beach chairs and towels are included in the room rate and are set up for you by the beach staff. The chairs are super comfortable making a day atbthe beach quite inviting. The rooms are small but well equipped. This is a great spot for couples- not a large pool area for kids.

We stayed for one night after visiting Cuba so the whole affluence of the area was quite a contrast. The Hotel was the perfect size and location. The bell boys were very helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are small but interestingly decorated in the Art Deco influenced style. It would be great if they had a place to hang your wet bathing suit. The windows open so you can enjoy the sea breeze!
The roof top pool has a beautiful view of the ocean, a variety of comfortable chairs and a good bar. The beach is only a block away so you have another swimming option.
Lots of shopping and dining nearby. We enjoyed getting the NY Times and having breakfast at the News Cafe a few doors away.

We stayed for a long weekend and couldn't have been happier with our choice. We were made welcome as soon as we arrived and informed that we had been upgraded to a suite, staff were helpful and happy to help. The suite was in another part of the hotel on Ocean which was a concern as it was right across from a major club, however with the windows closed the only thing we really heard was the bin lorries in the morning.

Room was very comfortable and big with lots of little other things that made the stay comfortable, rooms were cleaned everyday with fresh towels galore. Free wifi and free beach chairs and towels is a major plus as these can be quite expensive if you are going to the beach every day. Location couldn't be better as it is right in the middle of everything going on on the drive.

If we are to return we would definitely stay here again and pray that we get an upgrade.

We stayed one week at the hotel and had a great time. The room was with a view over the ocean. Beautiful view.
We had a well designed and nice room. Always clean.
We spend quite a lot of time at the pool at the roof of the hotel. Breakfast , lunch or a drink, well served.
Monica, John and the other guys did a great job with making our visit nice.
We can strongly recommend this hotel.

My husband and I spent two days down in South Beach before heading to visit family for the Thanksgiving holidays. We really enjoyed our time at The Hotel. We had signed up for Gold membership before arriving, and while there was no room to upgrade, we had an upper unit room that faced out onto Collins. The standard rooms are small, but the bathroom featured funky tile and a huge shower. We took our breakfasts up on the pool deck and on Saturday morning, enjoyed 11AM yoga with Massimo under the partial canopy (he provides yoga mats! just wear some sunscreen and maybe a pair of shades). Each day, your room rate includes two beach chairs and towels out on at 8th/Ocean; this was a treat. We didn't have to lug extra cash (minus a small tip) or fight for space.

The staff couldn't have been friendlier, and I'd return. The only thing I'd do differently is stay in a larger room, maybe in the Ocean building, where the rooms are larger.

Room Tip: Sign up for gold membership ahead of time. The larger rooms are over on Ocean, but they're more...
