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.

Overall it’d be nice if this were a three-star hotel but subpar for a four-star hotel. Things I like: 1) Pool. You can see the ocean from the pool. To me this is the best. It gets crowded at noon and early afternoon though. 2) closeness to the beach. Just crossing one street. 3) two CVS stores within walking distance. The hotel is at 29th street… Read more
Overall it’d be nice if this were a three-star hotel but subpar for a four-star hotel. Things I like: 1) Pool. You can see the ocean from the pool. To me this is the best. It gets crowded at noon and early afternoon though. 2) closeness to the beach. Just crossing one street. 3) two CVS stores within walking distance. The hotel is at 29th street and Collins Ave. The CVS in south beach at 2000 Collins Ave (20th street) has a larger collection including beach stuff than the one at 3000 Collins Ave (40th street), although Google map and the front desk tells you the closest CVS is the one at the 40th street. It’s a nice walk on the Beach Boardwalk as you can see the beach. Thing I don’t like: 1) Noise. The room I stay is facing a busy street, Collins Ave so it can get loud especially on the weekend. The rooms and the doors are not noise proof. There was a loud guest crowd on the weekend as well. You can hear it or feel it when someone is talking loudly on the hallway or shut the door heavily. 2) front desk looks understaffed. It could take a little while for someone to pick up a call or pick up and put you on hold 3) charging a $25 amenities fee and limited to two water bottles a day. The amenities fees come with free beach towel and chair rental at the beach via Bouchers Brothers. The front desk won’t tell you the beach chair doesn’t come with an umbrella. If you want a beach chair with an umbrella, that’s another $20 plus tax and tip per day out of pocket. 4) charged a valet parking fee while I didn’t even have a car! It took forever to talk to a person when I called. Always check your statement! 5) The room doesn’t have microwave and the coffee machine is a very simplified version. Unlike Hilton, Marriott hotels only clean the room once every three nights. You need to request 24 hours in advance if you want someone to clean the room. You can also request things such as toothpaste and towel change during your stay but it would take hours for them to get you the towels and that’s why I feel the hotel is understaffed. Read less

My family and I stayed in the AC Hotel in Miami Beach between 09/15/21 and 09/20/21. I was expecting 4-star hotel but was sadly disappointed. It’s clearly not up to the standard of a 4 stars hotel.

My family and I stayed in the AC Hotel in Miami Beach between 09/15/21 and 09/20/21. I was expecting 4-star hotel but was sadly disappointed. It’s clearly not up to the standard of a 4 stars hotel. The room was not cleaned any time after we checked in and the cleaning service was offered only every 3rd day. Even when I asked them to clean our room on a second day of our stay, the floor was not vacuumed, and bathroom floor was not cleaned. I asked for a cleaning service again on my 4th day of the stay, and the front desk promised that someone would come to clean our room, but my room was not cleaned the second time. The restaurant that was listed on their website was not open, because the kitchen was closed. There is a pool on the roof top, but this pool is only 3 feet deep, it's a kids’ depth (!). I traveled with my adult son who is disabled and uses a wheelchair. We were told that the pool will accommodate disabled people with the lift chair at the pool side... but it was totally unacceptable. I saw this chair and I can say that it was not installed correctly because it was positioned low on the pool deck, no disabled person could use it this way. I believe the information about the hotel’s customer service; cleaning service and amenities are misrepresented. Read less

I loved my vacation here. Staff was super inviting and helpful. I felt like my visit was appreciated and want to return. Jayce G. was my favorite member on staff when I wanted to sunbathe on the beach. Thank you Jayce G. for making women feel safe on a solo vacation!

Me and my friend Erica went there on vacation and when I tell you everything was so beautiful and well organized. The beach attendants were real nice and helpful especially Rolsen. They just made it a fun and smooth process! I 10/10 recommend. You won’t regret!
