National Hotel

Miami Beach, Miami

Virgin rating

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.

Everyone is so attentive. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Everything was so clean. The food was delicious! Pool water was so clean always clean towels. We loved the pool side service since we spent all of our time there. Keith got us the best mango daiquiris. Johanna made us laugh and got us the coconuts with shots in them.… Read more

1. The elevator got stuck for 20 minutes. 2. They supplied me dirty used towels on my first night there. 3. The staff is very rude and not helpful. 4. To spend $10,000 in 2 weeks at this place with horrible service was a mistake.

We purchased 2 Day Passes for the hotels amenities, we had a blast! The staff (Cam and Keith ) made sure our day at the beach/pool was fabulous! Everything from the food, drinks, the facilities, and service was excellent. If you're in Miami you must stay at the hotel for the night or purchase a day pass if visiting for the day!!! I'm in love… Read more

Booked a poolside cabana 6 weeks prior to my stay and was told it was unavailable due to a wedding party. Was treated very poorly by the poolside managers and neither of them initiated a refund or offered the cabana on a different day. They were completely empty on Sunday of our trip.
