The hotel

Art deco style and relaxed beach vibes is what the Gale South Beach is all about. On one side you've got Collins Avenue, a bustling hubbub of city lights, sights and sounds. On the other is the beach, with the relaxed promenade and white sands leading to the Atlantic Ocean. And at the Gale, you've got an infinity-edge pool to plunge into, a delicious Italian restaurant to eat at, and rooms decorated with the beach and ocean as their inspiration. However you decide to spend your holiday, make it a memorable one at the Gale.

The hotel staff was super friendly and helpful. My flight didn’t leave until late evening, so they made sure I could use the amenities during my long wait after check out. Dolce Vita, the restaurant on the first floor, is excellent. They the beef carpaccio. Room with a terrace is worth the money. Great stay! I will be back.

We had an amazing experience at the Gale on this past weekend. Our customer service experience was phenomenal. We always enjoy staying at the Gale each time we come to Miami. Thank you for great service and we appreciate Danny always taking care of our luggage.

Cornelius and Roxana were wonderful. I was worried about noise and they made sure we were taken care of. Great quiet, clean room the night before our cruise! Loved the terrace! Rosetta Bakery is great nearby. Thank you Gale Hotel South Beach!

I have to mention Thomas as well, he helped us with the luggage and made sure we got on the right taxi, we really apprecciated it. Rooms are a bit small, but for a one night stay, I can't complain. Location is terrific. Read less
