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.

Booked a five night stay for late December as part of a 15-day Florida trip. Pros: 1) Low rates; 2) Nice rooftop pool with good view and lounges with lots of social distance; 3) Proximity to the beach (across the street), walk/bike path, and nearby big hotels with fun bars and restaurants; 4) North of the craziness and crowds of Ocean Drive. Cons: 1) "Ocean facing" rooms have some Collins Avenue noise; 2) "Ocean view deluxe" rooms on 4th floor can only see a sliver of ocean in a gap between trees, buildings, and over The Edition's parking lot; 3) Hotel room and hallways needed cleaning and maintenance; 4) No daily housekeeping during COVID (not described on website and only announced at check-in; despite my protest, I was told "no"); and 5) Most importantly, the rooms are small and have very little storage -- there was a hanging cubby space and a single drawer; that may work for an overnight, but not for a long stay or heavy packer. I shared Cons 1-4 with management (nothing they can do about #5). Ultimately checked out after first night and moved to a different property. Read less

My husband surprise me with a trip for Christmas to Miami. He selected the hotel and asked that I not do anything like research the surrounding as I ALWAYS do in a new. city we visit. I was happy as we drive in from the aiport by Lyft - BEAUTIFUL scenery palm trees lit for Christmas and we turned off the road... and turned again...and ended up in front of this hotel and I almost cried. The hotel sits across the street and surronded by abandominums. "Abandoned Condominiums." I was afraid to even go into the hotel not knowing what to expect and merely judging from the outside. We had a King Suite with Balcony. It was an exaggeration. The bed i snot a tru King, the balcony was very small similar to an enclosed ledge. and guess what our view was? The yellow monstrosity across the street abandoned and scary. I couldnt enjoy the balcony. I know its CoVid season but the hotel had nothing to offer. No restaurant, no drinks at check in, nothing. When asked each the 3 days we were there for eateries in the area, we were given little to no direction and poor directions "Go out here make a left and its not far". The beach was pretty, the neighborhood is in need of some TLC and soon I'm certain it will be as expensive as the Edition - as sister property- across the street which also sits across from ANOTHER abandominium. The room needs a little work, the sink linked all over which is probably what caused the paint and paper at the base to need attention. The STAFF WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! FRIENDLY! HELPFUL!! Saturday 12/26 there was food on the rooftop which was supposed to be offered until 10pm and when we went to the roof at 8 there was noone in sight. Again, i will blame CoVid. Would I stay here again? Would I recommend? Well, maybe not to the first but yes to the second. It was good for our age 50 and 52. It was a mile or so from south south beach - the hotel is Mid Beach. The buses are free and you dont necessarily have to take an uber or lyft. All in all the main things are the room, the cleanliness, friendliness of staff - those were 4 1/2 stars. the location with the blight from every inch of the hotel is not so appealing. From the 3rd floor deck which was really cool - until i went to the edge and looked out into a dirty pool across the street. Once those things are corrected, itll be a great stay all around Read less

This was my first time in Miami. It definitely did not disappoint. The beach to all the amazing food, it was exactly what I needed. I Stayed at AC hotel Marriott. The staff was very accommodating. At the beach front, William was a treat. Very courteous and full of city recommendations if you asked! Highly recommend.

My wife and I visited Miami from California to experience freedom once again. Staff incredible from reception to management. Especially enjoyed the beach service from Will I Am. Beach chairs always ready and clean.
