AC Hotel Miami Beach

Miami, Florida

The hotel

In arguably one of the top spots in Miami, you’ve got the best of both worlds here. You’re in the right place to relax, stroll across the road to the sands, and meander the galleries and shops nearby. But the famed Ocean Drive is only a 10-minute drive away – the hub of the city’s nightlife. Head to the AC Hotel’s restaurant or pool bar to taste tapas and sip on a classic cocktail. And have a dip in the rooftop pool, overlooking the rippling ocean, perfect for watching those fiery sunsets.

Very easy walk to the beach. Beach area is nice and clean. Beach service was exceptional. William took great care of us at the beach. Set us up in our chairs and checked back on us several times. He provided the nicest, most attentive, and professional beach service ever! Overall a great experience at this hotel and we look forward to staying here again. Read less

William with the beach chair service was wonderful. He was courteous and professional. It’s so nice when traveling to have complimentary chairs at the beach. Highly recommend the AC hotel for anyone wanting to escape winter.

The AC Hotel is conveniently located just a short walk from the beach and a quick Uber ride to many of the restaurants and shopping areas in South Beach. It has a beautiful rooftop pool with a partial view of the ocean. Our room in the AC was small and had no charm or character. It also didn't have a closet or drawers to hold our clothes.

The AC Hotel is conveniently located just a short walk from the beach and a quick Uber ride to many of the restaurants and shopping areas in South Beach. It has a beautiful rooftop pool with a partial view of the ocean. Our room in the AC was small and had no charm or character. It also didn't have a closet or drawers to hold our clothes. It had a small bench to place 1 suitcase; we used a chair for the other. Our "balcony" was an ugly patio that was the roof of the hotel parking lot. Our view faced another parking lot. This was disappointing considering that we paid an average of $470 per night including taxes and a mandatory $25 fee for the beach chairs and free bikes. The housekeeping service was fair; the inside of our toilet was not cleaned one day (gross) and on our last day we complained to the front desk when our room hadn't been cleaned by 5pm. A loud humming sound from outside woke us each morning around 6:30am. It sounded like an industrial compressor or hot water heater. We later learned that it was the car lift from the parking garage. We heard this noise several times a day. I went to the 'gym' one day when it was raining and 3 out of the 5 pieces of equipment were broken. When I complained to the nice woman at the front desk, she walked me back to the gym to check out the broken equipment and apologized. We used the beach chairs but there were no clean covers. ("They'll be out shortly.") My wife and I were both very disappointed by the AC Hotel. Read less

I stayed twice at the AC Hotel in February. Both times I went to the beach and was served by William. The service was great. The last time I was there the weather turned bad so most people left the beach. This gave William some extra time. I ended up talking with him for about an hour. My takeaway is that he is a great young man. He really cares… Read more

I was initially so pleasantly surprised to find that this affordable alternative - literally across the street from the chic Edition - was so clean and reasonable. However, I was in for it. First, the room I reserved was not available upon check in. I was given sub-optimal alternatives and no apology or explanation. Then, I went out for the… Read more
I was initially so pleasantly surprised to find that this affordable alternative - literally across the street from the chic Edition - was so clean and reasonable. However, I was in for it. First, the room I reserved was not available upon check in. I was given sub-optimal alternatives and no apology or explanation. Then, I went out for the day only to come back to an unclean room. Then, I went out for dinner and simply asked if they could clean my room since it was 6 pm and I had a dirty room. I returned from dinner to a still unclean room. I'm a Marriott Rewards member with status. This was truly beyond belief. So, in theory, it's a nice modern, clean basic hotel, but the issue is they don't take care of their customers. Read less
