AC Hotel Miami Beach

Miami, Florida

Virgin rating

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.

In total transparency - I am a Lifetime Platinum and currently a Titanium Elite this year. I am so glad to see travel returning back to pre-COVID time , but it's terrible to see how much damage Marriott Bonvoy has done in creating these new tiers of 'full service' and "partial service' properties.

In total transparency - I am a Lifetime Platinum and currently a Titanium Elite this year. I am so glad to see travel returning back to pre-COVID time , but it's terrible to see how much damage Marriott Bonvoy has done in creating these new tiers of 'full service' and "partial service' properties. This hotel location was OK , ironically opposite an EDITION brand (which from a $ perspective was great for AC!) . However that is where all comparisions end Negative - Disgruntled front desk staff, no attempt even be polite - bathroom floor was full of hair .. obviously very well ' NOT sanitized' -Breakfast /terrible , hot food was cold, coffee was cold, fruits were stale Positive -Room was a SNA upgrade , and this was the only silver lining -AGM of the property - was the only person who lived the true Marriott standard of customer service Summary -If you do NOT have to stay here, DO NOT- not worth your points or money Marriott, shame on how much your service has fallen.

We recently stayed at the AC Hotel Miami Beach for a staycation. Location was great, with nice partial view of ocean and people watching from expansive patio. The resort offer 2 hours of free biking which we took advantage of and was excellent. The valet men, Efrain and Servando couldn’t be more helpful and kind. They had bikes all ready and helped make experience excellent. They also couldn’t have been kinder when helping us with valet, reminding me to take a picture of ticket was a great idea and very helpful. Restaurants were yummy and would highly recommend Hotel, Miami Beach and kind experience with valet men! Read less

The Hotel is in a good Miami Beach location, not in the crazy busy south end, not in the slower paced north end. An easy walk to the beach. The valet service was on point.

The Hotel is in a good Miami Beach location, not in the crazy busy south end, not in the slower paced north end. An easy walk to the beach. The valet service was on point. The manager, Josh, ensured our experience was elevated due to some confusion when we checked in. He was kind, friendly and knowledgeable. Most of the staff followed his lead. We had a 7th floor ocean view room with a big outdoor balcony. The paint on the balcony floor was bubbling and peeling in spots. The room was nice, bed was comfortable, A/C was cold! TV didn't work at check in but maintenance was able to fix it within 10 minutes of out call. The seat on the toilet was too small for the bowl. A nice bar and lounge on the main floor, a big outdoor play yard on the third floor with cornhole, conne t four and lounge chairs. An infinity pool is on the roof. Go to the pool! Towels, chairs, cabanas, bar and food available and the view is amazing. Breakfast was $15 and not worth it. There are several great restaurants with a short walk. If you are part of the Starbucks tribe, there is a store attached to the Hotel but you'll find better coffee a block away. Big YAY for being dog-friendly, big boo for not indicating at booking that dogs were $150 for the length of your stay. We would stay at this property again. Read less

Back in April, we were returning from a trip to Grenada when we, like thousands of others, got “stranded, in Miami after weather impacted all Florida airports. The weather was still fine where we were aside from a few pop up showers and with NO rental cars available, luggage stuck in the airport and no way to return home until 3 days later we figured… why stay near the airport when Miami Beach is so close. So, after a 45 min search through tons of options, we decided to stick with our favorite brand family and try out the AC Hotel at Miami Beach. A 30 min Uber ride later and we were on site and headed to the nearby shopping district for essentials and some temp travel clothes. Perfect location just north of South beach, not right on the beach but the next street back. Close to quick shopping and walking distance along the beach bike path to all the fun bars and restaurants in South Beach or the shops on Lincoln. Restaurant on site, no free breakfast, but the bottom of the building is shared with a Starbucks which was very convenient. Wi-Fi was also reliable, which was perfect for our need to work remotely due to the flight delay running our vacation into the following work-week. If you ever need to stay over a night- skip the obvious options and try out this location instead Read less

When you’re hitting the beach, having a car can be quite a hassle. Servando made that effortless and made valet something we could look forward to. He provided very high level service. Best valet ever!!
