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.

I recently stayed in this hotel for 5 days for a business trip as the hotel is close to the convention centre, and was very well looked after by all the staff, especially Oleksandra who was on the front desk and helped me when I checked in. The hotel is well appointed, and has an excellent in house Italian restaurant.

Another wonderful stay @ Gale South Beach. Warmly welcomed by Victoria @ Front Desk who graciously accommodated us with an early checkin. Aleksandra once again assisted us with special requests. Was able to utilize beach and lunch @ 'sister' property Shelbourne this trip. Preferred the pool deck @ Gale South Beach which is well maintained and extremely relaxing. Like last visit, constantly saw GM, Kevin Waldstein, walking all floors checking on details and checking in with guests... me included:) Excellent location, many amenities and warm customer service make this boutique hotel a must stay while in South Miami Beach. Looking forward to our next visit! Read less

What can I say? This place has it all. Best place for families and the service is amazing. Great rooms at a super reasonable price and location is amazing. Even the hotel's GM was happy to help with all requests (thank you Kevin). Will always stay here.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary in mid-December with a stay at the Gale. In a day and age that has become increasingly impersonal, stressful and without the simple pleasures we have taken for granted, the Gale is a throwback to the happier, pre-Covid era.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary in mid-December with a stay at the Gale. In a day and age that has become increasingly impersonal, stressful and without the simple pleasures we have taken for granted, the Gale is a throwback to the happier, pre-Covid era. The staff at the Gale is lead by Kevin Waldstein, hotel GM. Kevin is engaged, knowledgeable of the local area, warm, caring and committed to customer satisfaction. Kevin's style and high standards are evident in his staff, who were also hospitable, friendly, always going the extra mile and customer-centric. The property itself gushes with personality, a 1941 art deco treasure- enhancing the experience and vibe. The onsite restaurant has a boutique, Euro-feel with a lovely outdoor patio. The property is walkable to all of the highlights in SB. Complimentary bikes are available...don't miss the 12 mile, oceanfront bike and walking path one block from the hotel. The rooftop pool is another 5-Star amenity. Read less
