“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

I recently stayed at the Shore Club and had a great stay. From the moment I checked in the staff made me feel right at home. I was immediately "welcomed back" as a return guest and then to my surprise, when my room wasn't ready (check in is at 3pm and I arrived at 7am), the gentleman at the front desk told me he was going to upgrade me to a suite so i wouldn't have to wait and I could check in immediately. The attentive and great customer service that I received at the time of check in set the tone for the remainder of a great trip

We stayed at the Shore Club for the last weekend in February. I had been looking for someplace hip and stylish for our first time staying overnight in South Beach. We were a little concerned about the mixed reviews, but we wound up loving Shore Club - and if you go in with the right expectations, you should love it too.

When it comes to pricing, hotel industry insiders might describe Shore Club as "premium," or even "aggressive." Anyone else would call it "comical," or "out of control." Again, just be aware of what you're getting into, and you'll be fine.

Our room itself was $5 more than we paid two weeks ago for a suite that was more than twice as large at the Waldorf-Astoria in Chicago that Conde Nast traveler ranks as the #1 hotel in the entire country. But that was in Chicago and the Shore Club is in South Beach. It was 10 degrees in Chicago and 85 in South Beach. So we didn't mind the extra $5.

Incidentals are pricey, too. Right after we checked in, I stopped at the sundry shop for two cans of sunblock, 1 stick of face protector, a Shore Club ball cap, and a bag of cool ranch Doritos. The total came to $102. Seriously. Drinks at the pool are really tasty, but run $7 for a beer, $13-17 for a cocktail, and $70 for a pitcher. A bowl of chips with salsa and guacamole was $13, I think.

Yes, the room was tiny. It was maybe 14 by 14. Seriously. We had a "partial ocean view," which means if we looked straight out the window, we saw the Setai across the street - but if we turned our head about 20 degrees to the right, we saw gorgeous white sand and clear blue water. The bathroom was small, but the shower was big enough for two. Several reviewers have said the furniture looks like it comes from Ikea. It does, but so what? We d

The only surprise was that the headboard wasn't bolted to the wall. I thought that was curious for a hotel offering two separate "intimacy kits" in the minibar. (We heard headboards knocking against the wall from 3 or 4 rooms during our stay; we were glad that other guests enjoying the party atmosphere.)

Oh, Shore Club makes the lists of best topless hotel pools. If you're looking for boobies, you'll have better luck on the beach than at the pool.

Overall, the Shore Club was a great property with great service and exactly the fun vibe we were looking for. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the courtyard to avoid noise from partiers.

Just finished up a 3 night stay at the shore club. We had a great time - the hotel has a great vibe, with fun party music playing by the pool all day and at the red bar at night. The location is great, too - right near lots of great restaurants (including nobu right in the hotel!) and shops, an of course, direct beach access. The only negative I would say is that, like at most Morgans hotels, everything is pretty bare bones and minimalist, almost to the point of being cheap feeling. But you're not paying to hang out in your room all day. I will say that, despite being a "cool" hotel, the service was very good, and we found the staff to be extremely friendly and accommodating.

One final note: the bar can be very loud until 2am. Granted, this is to be expected somewhat since the bar scene there is a big part of the appeal, but just be forewarned.

Dear KVD2101,

I am happy to hear that you had a great time with us and enjoyed the bar scene. The front desk team will be happy to hear your kind words of encouragement.
We are very happy to announce our on going window project which will help sound proof the rooms from the outside noise.

Mistakes can be made and we made one by staying here. Location and "cool factors" predominate for 30 seconds. After that it's small poorly renovated and cheaply furnished rooms. Night time ambience is all the focus. Need a blind persons cane for walking the unlighted walkwAys. Company billing procedures held 50% of bill against my CC for future payment of incidentals.
Finally, twice was propositioned by hookers orbiting the grounds and hallways at night.

Dear Sailordon54,
I apologize that you did not enjoy your stay with us.

Excellent location - right in the middle of all the action in South Beach. Trendy bars and crowd at the pools. Oceanfront rooms are good value for money - spacious, trendy white decor, large bathrooms and a balcony with a couple of chairs and table. The property can get noisy at night - so if you are looking for an early night this place may not be for you. Big advantage - they have two pools - the main one which is more happening and a quieter, smaller pool. Great service with a large staff at hand - 18% service charge included everywhere on property helps. Meant for singles and couples - did not see any kids on property.

Room Tip: Oceanfront room with balcony

Dear Wings_Wheels,

Many thanks for your amazing review and I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Shore Club is an active hotel so we do agree that it can be noisy at times especially over weekends and special events. However I wanted to let you know that we are currently installing soundproof windows in some of the hotel rooms that completely soundproof the rooms so we are now able to offer our more noise sensitive guests this option at check in.

See you soon.

Alexandra.

I stayed at the shore club for 3 nights at the end of October with a friend (ive been meaning to get round to writing this review since i got back) our stay was at the end of a 3week trip in South America and we were looking for somewhere to just relax after an amazing but very tiring trip and the shore club was just what we were looking for.

As soon as you walk into the hotel, the decor and furnishings make you feel totally relaxed. Our room was clean, bright with modern furnishings. The pool area is lovely, very lively and welcoming, own enterance to the beach. The hotel location is perfect, you can walk to the shops, bars and clubs. We also had dinner in Nobu, which we would highly recommend.

The staff are very helpful and friendly, in particular the manager Mario and the girl at the front desk Katie.

Overall, it was a great experience for our first time in Miami and would definitley stay again.

This is an old classic Miami Hotel.
Its been nicely renovated, although it still has that 70s feel (which is great if you 're into Scarface, Miami Vice etc.).

Not as good as the Delano which is down the road, and the price difference isn't huge.

But overall positive experience with good service.
