My wife and I visited South Beach Hotel recently as a part of an anniversary celebration. Firstly, I can say that the interactions which we had with most of their staff were by and large congenial. Decent enough. Nevertheless, what was the deal breaker for us and actually soured the entire experience involved their "rooms serviced every three days" policy. Ok, so granted that we only stayed two nights, and as one employee we met in the hall stated, there was a "shortage of staff". However, I'd figure that under such circumstanes, a sufficient solution would be offered... i.e. a toilet brush? (as much as I'll disclose). Well, when we approached front desk and raised the question "Are we required to remove the trash on our own?"(seems preposterous?), we were told "leave it outside and I'll have someone to pick it up". Sadly, it appeared that message was lost in translation as the "someone" never showed up. This was a based on a "staycation" experience. The lot of the deplorables? I won't go there. My only hope is that the right pair of eyes peruse this greivance, and put the necessary measures in place so that another doesn't have to endure the same lot which we have did. Read less

I had a great stay here at South Beach Hotel in the Junior Suite early November 2020. The room looked amazing and was extremely clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely visit again.
