The hotel

Restored to its former glory, the South Beach Hotel is simply a step back in time to the funky world of Art Deco. A perfect base for groups, or young couples looking to experience the real Miami. Features such as modern lighting and a wall-to-wall freshwater aquarium greet you as you approach the front desk, creating an awe-inspiring atmosphere. Rooms are minimalist in style with an excellent range of amenities, including a jetted bathtub to relax in before a night on the town! Talking of which, you've got everything you could wish for just a few steps away, including gourmet restaurants, lively bars and glamorous nightclubs where you can party with the best of them!

The South Beach Hotel is nothing like the pictures online. It smells like urine and mold in the hallways. The room looks like a 1950s hospital room. The beds are way too low and terrible.

The South Beach Hotel is nothing like the pictures online. It smells like urine and mold in the hallways. The room looks like a 1950s hospital room. The beds are way too low and terrible. There was hardly any amenities. We barely even slept. The “courtyard” was a nasty mess. It looked like a movie scene from a horror movie. The air would not adjust and the toilet would barely work. I called the front desk and no one would pick up. The only good experience was the people who helped us with luggage and the lady on the last day was nice. The lady at check in was hateful and the one that would not answer the phone. Parking was a nightmare too. The spaces are not large enough for anything but a small car. It was behind the hotel with was a couple blocks. Never again will I stay there. Read less

Horrifying Experience! I'm conviced no one works here and those that do are just scamming their guests. We arrived for our 4 night stay to find our room under total construction.

Horrifying Experience! I'm conviced no one works here and those that do are just scamming their guests. We arrived for our 4 night stay to find our room under total construction. We were given no advanced warning of this. The first morning of our "relaxing" stay we were awoken at 7:30am by workers hammering on the wall outside our room. We were offered 2 free drinks as an apology....every single day we were woken up by the construction. We were told there was no manager on duty, and since then we've been ignored and transferred through mutliple people who have never followed up. It has been two months since this incident. I filed a Better Business Bureau report and they couldn't even respond to that. This hotel is an absolute scam - for what you're paying youre better off at a cleaner hotel, on the beach, with far superior customer service. Read less

Jefferson was extremely helpful and a great dude! Was able to accommodate everything my group needed and we had a great time. I will definitely recommend other coworkers and friends to visit, can’t say enough about the great experience we had!
