National Hotel

Miami Beach, Miami

The hotel

A cool cocktail stirring up the best bits of Miami, National Hotel Miami Beach throws in a dash of Art Deco (thanks to its Collins Avenue address); a shot of Miami’s swanky beach scene (thanks to its sand-skirting spot); and a splash of chic poolside glamour (thanks to its headline-grabbing pool). The longest infinity edge pool in Miami Beach, it’s flanked by graceful palms, gorgeous bougainvillea, and serene spots for poolside libations from Aqua Club Bar & Grill. As evening draws in, you can switch to the fresh Med flavours of Tamara Bistro, the tapas and live sounds of Blues Bar, or the buzzing local hotspots along popular Lincoln Road, one block away, and Ocean Drive, two blocks away.

My family and I visited The National Hotel in Miami Beach as a last minute option after our Airbnb was canceled. The front desk clerk, Jennifer Milfort & the manager, Javeuris, went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. They provided superior customer service! From suggesting and providing us ice to put on our perishable foods to assuring accommodations for everyone, they truly exceeded our expectations. The hotel itself was very nice with a beautiful pool and immediate beach access. The bar area was very tropical and laid back. I would give this place 5 stars for the customer service alone but there is a con preventing me from doing so. There is a $34 resort fee and a $42 valet fee. The resort fee is normal in the area but the valet fee I feel is excessive being there is no parking within the area. I think that guests should be provided complimentary valet, atleast for 1 vehicle. Overall, I had never heard of National Hotel until this weekend but after having such a wonderful experience provided by Jennifer & Javeuris, I have added it to my destination list when I return to the Miami Beach area. Thank you again Jennifer & Javeuris! ~ The Stranded Family Read less

Coming from a small town in Virginia, I expected my solo weekend getaway to Miami to be a big one. With the weekend just closing out, the least I could say is that it fully exceeded my grand expectations for my stay in Miami Beach. This hotel was wonderful.

Coming from a small town in Virginia, I expected my solo weekend getaway to Miami to be a big one. With the weekend just closing out, the least I could say is that it fully exceeded my grand expectations for my stay in Miami Beach. This hotel was wonderful. The lobby and rooms had a nice Art Deco flair to them and were comfortably sized. The beach was a 1 minute walk away (can’t get any better than that), and the aqua bar outside was one of my personal favorites. Every bartender was extremely friendly and accommodating. Not to mention, the pool boys, Nick and Alejandro, who normally worked in the morning when I was there were very friendly and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. They always offered help and had smiles on their faces. The heated pool and the long pool were a nice contrast to each other, being 2 different temperatures as well. The front desk staff was also very helpful in anything and everything I had to ask them. All in all, I had a spectacular stay and will be back the next time I come to Miami Beach. Read less
