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 underwhelmed for 800 dollars.

Very underwhelmed for 800 dollars. I'm no stranger to cheaper hotels but this was the most disappointing stay ever.  As soon as we arrived to our room we noticed the floors were dirty, rooms are apparently not cleaned between guests because I found someone's fake eyelash on the floor. Definitely wasn't mine. The sheets were also dirty as well so we just slept on what was underneath.  Shower pressure from the head is super low. Takes 30 mins to heat the water fully and you have to stand super close to the shower head to wash and rinse off. The balcony was also extremely disappointing because it was facing an abandoned building, not the best view,  and THE CHAIR PROVIDED WAS BROKEN SO I HAD NO PLACE TO SIT ANYWAY. The amenities were ok at best but guests have to pay 22$ extra for an umbrella on the beach. The hotel workers on the beach had no change for a 50$ on site and only took cards with chips so we couldn't pay for an umbrella:( All in all one of the worst experiences at a hotel ever! Read less

Keven was friendly and his services was amazing! He set up my chairs and umbrella quickly! I love this hotel, we had a great time and the location is prime! It was just a few steps from the beach and there are great bars and restaurants within walking distance.

Average hotel and average service. I don’t usually write reviews but this is one I had to do. I was very irritated with the management since I had to move room three times and no compensation was given. Won’t be back.
