Washington Park Hotel

Miami, Florida

The hotel

The Washington Park is a collection of four landmarked Art Deco hotels that have been reimagined and respectfully updated to bring you the best in boutique accommodation. Achingly hip it might be but it’s also very relaxed with a very social atmosphere and service that is second to none. The pool is the main hub of activity with people gathering to drink cocktails and soak up the sun as well as the vibe. As for the restaurant, don’t worry it’s not really for ‘Employees Only’ as its name suggests, it’s actually an offshoot from NYC’s beloved speakeasy restaurant and this is its first foray outside Manhattan. Again the atmosphere is relaxed but the food is of gourmet standard, making it an essential part of your experience at the Washington. Before you head off for the evening, enjoy a drink at the Swizzle Tropical Cocktail Bar; the atmosphere is so enticing you might end up staying!

We arrived at our hotel at 11am to stay for one night before our cruise and four nights after ...It was very central to most things and the pictures and reviews where very good ..We where told our room would not be ready till 4pm but they would take our bags. The weather wasn't very good so decided to go for a little walk and have some lunch .When we arrived back at 2.50 we asked what time the room would be ready.The girl said oh it wont be long if you grab a seat I will let you know ...maybe 25 .30 mins...At 3.56 we decided to ask again ..The girl had now gone homeand we spoke to David we mentioned what had happened and he said "Oh well it's still 3 mins to four so we are still early" He gave me a piece of paper and told us what block we where in. He never gave us any details about the hotel what we could or couldn't do. We later found out from housekeeping the next day that the hotel has a private part of the beach that you are entitled to sunbeds and towels ...Maybe you need to guess ...Met Felix (the manager )and another guy on the way out of our building who informed us the elevator is broken. Lucky enough they helped us with our bags up the two flights..I was asked was everything ok and explained I wasnt very happy with the lack of customer service. Felix apologised and said he would speak to his staff.He also said if I needed to cancel my other days he would honour this without a deposit being taken.Thankyou Felix .Next day we needed to check out at 11am Got to the elevator and it was still broken No contact from anyone to give us help down the stairs.Now the housekeeping guy who gave us the information about the beach helps us with all our bags ...We felt obliged to tip...I was not bothered about the money but surely a building with three storeys should have their lift repaired within 20 hours .Or arrange for help for customers .When I arrived at reception I spoke to Felix again and told him the lift was still broken He said Oh yes ...Oh well follow by example .I now ask him to cancel my remaining four days Thankyou Felix ..Now I am informed I have to pay $28 for site fees .Didmt really have time to use anything but hey ho ...Now I get my Barclaycard bill a week later and a payment of £61.50 has been taken from Washington Park Hotel .I think the hotel need to send staff for some customer service training It would be nice to have some information or an information pack on arrival .The rooms are very small the bathroom has the smallest space for any toilet I have ever seen ...The pool is very small and the sun beds need to be renewed so dirty The blocks look awful and could do with a refurb .As for faulty elevators they should have been a priority for customer.One redeeming feature was the bed linen and towels all white clean and fluffy ..I would never ever stay here again and would definitely not recommend to my worse enemy..I had to book another hotel upon our arrival from our Cruise and still awaiting my refund Read less

Matt at the front desk is awesome. Close to everything we wanted in South Beach. For the price you can’t beat it. Rooms were clean and had everything necessary. Arrival cocktails were a great touch and tasted great.

Nothing fancy, but super comfortable. Beds and pillows great. Daily maid service. 3 blocks to beach. Staff was wonderful. I recommend staying here and plan to return! Daily breakfast items, coffee in lobby. Inexpensive compared to many. Walking distance to restaurants, bars and cvs.

Myself and my friends stayed at the Washington Park Hotel in Miami. While at the pool, we were approached to join a complimentary salsa class. The class and instructor were amazing! She was super supportive and guided us through the steps. I would definitely and highly recommend it to anyone.

outrageous daily valet parking. Rooms are clean and functional-nothing fancy-very plain with limited amenities. Very small and noisy pool-a lot of kids-property is well taken care of but lacks amenities. Great location for walk to South Beach and restuarants.
