all especially in the interior areas the pool area was dirty all time
The hotel was in a great location with great views. The hotel will nickel and dime you for many different resort fees.
I liked the hotel room layout because it was new and fresh.
The hotel had direct beach access, and close to great outdoor shopping, and was a very good value for the money. The staff was friendly and attentive It seemed a little run down, but that was in character for a hotel that was as old as this.
Aside from everything being over-priced, it's situated in a very convenient location that's a few blocks down from all the shops and restaurants, plus the rooms were extremely comfortable! Everything was nice and CLEAN, staff was friendly, and the hotel is a couple steps away from the beach. Will definitely choose this place again! Over-priced services, drinks and food...and they charged us a $30 resort fee per day which we weren't informed about when we first checked in.
Really enjoyed my stay here. The ocean facing room was beautiful and comfortable with a nice clean modern design aesthetic that was very minimal and lent itself to the great view and balcony. The staff throughout was all smiles and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves just fine. A great location just above south beach to keep you close to the night life and local color but far enough away to be comfortable. I had such a good stay that I booked a second night. Also good internet speeds which was crucial since I was on business and uploading lots of files.
I am a former Miami citizen and so I am picky and savvy. The Royal Palm is simply beautiful. The furniture, flooring, light fixtures, landscaping, are well designed and maintained. My room was clean, chic, had an amazing view. Bathroom was modern and lovely. Bed and sheets were comfortable. Your stay includes beach chairs and towels and service (cocktails and food) at your chair. I felt like a queen and was treated exceptionally well by the staff at the beach. I accidentally left my grandmother's ring in my room after checkout and the bellhop mobilized the housekeeping staff to look for and find it. I am so grateful! And whoever is running this place is doing all the important things right. I am a frequent traveler and will DEFINITELY be returning to the Royal Palm Resort. Oh, and you can't beat the location... I requested a late checkout, as I was unsure when I would be done with my meetings, and the gentleman at the front desk smirked and laughed at my request, which I did not appreciate. I do not fault the Royal Palm for this I still feel, despite this individual, I had an amazing experience and I will definitely return.
It's right on the beach! Housekeeping staff took my iPhone 6 charger and took the bottles of alcohol that I bought and placed in the fridge. They also took my razors. Also noticed that while they are on the floors cleaning they keep all of the doors open even if they have other people's property in them which makes it really easy for someone else to go in to your room and take your stuff.
Management handled room complication well Interesting modern design in room Great beachfront view and access Sea salt hand scrub in the bathroom was amazing Great location and ambiance Our room was not clean and was in complete shambles when they sent us up there at check-in. (Imagine walking into a room that looks like a rock band had just partied there. We were speechless.) The Bellhop did not give us a claim tag for our luggage we dropped off so we had to go identify it in the storage room and the bellhop had the nerve to ask for a tip after. There was a significant amount of blood on the walls between the doors of our room and the room next door (how can you miss that? who is looking over this place??)
Cheap renovations with premium cost of accommodation. Parking cost is unreasonable. Our first room had not been cleaned after the previous guests. We were switched to a worse/smaller room. There was no acoustic privacy.
Location, beach access Poor hotel management, and poor service when allocating rooms and requesting guests to change rooms. They tried to downgrade us on the first night (the room was already paid for), and also offered us to sleep at an other hotel on the first night because our room was not available. Not accessible. Swimming pool area: Bathroom at the pool could be the bathroom of a 2 star hotel, and there are no indoor shower.
Didn't replace toiletries in the bathroom. Sheets were very rough.
I was injured at the hotel and the staff was rude and unhelpful. I was most surprised at the at the poor attitude of the assistant general manger. I would never stay at this hotel again.
Excelent staff very kindfull, excelent rooms, good cleanliness, great with kids.
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ! !! EVERYTHING WAS WRONG!! IMPOSSIBLE TO CHECK IN.. LITERALLY ..WOULDN'T REFUND MY MONEY EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T STAY THERE. STAFF AND MANAGEMENT WEREN'T HELPFUL. TRIED TO CHARGE ME TWICE... NEVER EVER USE THIS SITE OR STAY AT THIS HOTEL.. HAD TO CUT TRIP SHORT BECAUSE OF ALL THE HASSLE !! STAY AWAY
SOME of the staff were very kind. Almost kind enough to make up for the two people who had terrible attitudes when faced with an actual customer service situation prior to them. First impression is everything. The bed was actually quite comfortable. The hotel signage is terrible for a place that makes that much money and is located on south beach. Why is that an issue here? There are multiple buildings with no parking anywhere around them and surrounded by a difficult two-lane road. The building that has the more obvious sign (shown in the picture) isn't even the building you check in at, or will likely stay. When I called trying to get assistance, the woman on the phone had a one inch fuse before I could hear her try to pass me off to somebody. She thought she was muffling the phone well enough but I could hear her telling the gentleman there how stupid I must be. They kept insisting there was a man outside, which there was nobody anywhere and she kept giving me terrible directions leading me in circles around there building as I tried to avoid letting the cars line up behind me. Finally, a gentleman I could only assume was the one she was speaking to came out and frankly spoke to me like I must be an idiot, pointing at the building aggressively yelling "Do you not see that black and white sign we are telling you about? Just use your eyes and look. This is the riviera!" in a tone that suggested I'm a child who has been crying in the back seat of his car for an hour. I didn't even feel up to letting him know they don't know left from right and he was pointing at the complete opposite of where they were guiding me on the phone. It then turned out my only option for parking was to pay $40 a night for valet. Only other option is a nearby garage for $35 a night. That is the ONLY parking option if you are driving; so budget for it. There is also a $20 hotel fee added as well. I thought the hotel fee was... Well, the rate. I had never been so frustrated by a hotel before actually even getting checked in. When expressing my discontent to the gentleman checking me in, he said he would give me a better room, which meant a room with more space and an obstacle course to the phone I needed to get to so I could ask why he though that I (checking in alone on a business trip) needed to trade the one king size bed I reserved for two smaller beds. They finally put me in the room I reserved and the bed was great besides my pillows smelling like wet towels. Let me tell you, the views of the destroyed and dilapidated buildings that just about every window comes with were great. They give you two iPod radios that have first generation plugs, so don't expect to listen to music on them. The tv had no hdmi plug to let you supplement their terrible basic cable package. Half the channels on their directory didn't work. But the fridge was stocked with overprice booze. I felt like I wasted my money and could have paid half as much for twice the experience almost anywhere else. Are there worse places? Obviously. But I would never recommend this hotel to anybody. If I was on vacation and not business, my trip would have been ruined by how short they fell of how decent they look online.
The staff before christmas were extremely helpful and very accommodating The staff after christmas were negligible, rude, obnoxious and unhelpful.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location near the beach was great. There is a convenience store 2 minutes from the hotel where you can buy food/drinks on the cheap. The music from the bar started early and ended late. In the third building, it was very noticeable. One of the beds was noticeably more comfortable than the other. Different mattresses. The wifi signal was terrible. It went in and out and the connection was extremely slow.
Staff friendly and helpful, very comfortable and stylish suites with excellent and good quality facilities, lots of space, great location - easy walking distance to Ocean Drive. Poolside breakfast is sufficient, Free shuttle bus to the airport is a nice touch. I will definitely stay here again, much better than the last hotel I used in Miami. Rooms are very very dark, a torch would be useful to find things in your suitcase. Note that a hotel surcharge/tax of $15/day (per suite) is billed in addition to the figure quoted on booking.com
Doormen were excellent. Close to the beach with free beach chairs. Housekeeping is very poor because they do not understand a word of English. The wall is too thin. Could not sleep because of the TV noise next door. Reception may not be efficient; was charged different rates. Had to pay extra for the taxi because of the poor response when checking-out. No prior response to my mail sent asking as to how to get on the free shuttle-bus from the airport.
I had the worst experience in riveria south hotel . It was overal very bad experience . Comfort was zero in the room I didn't like the hotel overall . It was pathatic
Close to the convention center Private balcony Contemporary room styling Here's my list: -No ice machines...I had to go to the bar in my pajamas to get ice -Took over 30 minutes to check in -No one helped us with our bags even though they force you to pay $35 a day to value -Everyone seems to ignore you unless you directly speak to them -Air Conditioner was broken and they fixed the day we left...over 90 deg on SOBE! This left a wet, slippery film over the floor -Not very safe...anyone can walk into the side entrance of the hotel (there is no door whatsoever) and have access to the rooms -No room service even though there is a restaurant attached to the hotel -The beds were DEFINITELY not Tempurpedic as advertised; it is a cheap knockoff -I wouldn't stay here again unless I had to
Friendly personels, quiet, very good location, a lot of space Missing light in the wardrobes
My family and I felt very welcome. They were very very friendly & helpful! I highly recommended this hotel.
Værelserne er dejligt store og pæne. Vi var en familie med 2 store børn, og der var fin plads på værelset. Beliggenheden på stranden er virkelig god. Vi havde en fantastisk udsigt over stranden Prisen for morgensmadsbuffet (ca. 22.95 $) er alt for dyrt i forhold til hvad buffetten indeholder og sammenlignet med andre hoteller. Poolen virker ikke ren. Hotellet ligger i et kedeligt område uden restauranter og butikker i gå afstand.
God udsigt fra værelset og rart med køleskab og kaffemaskine.
blev opgraderet til et værelse med havudsigt. Værelserne er helt fantastiske, med 2 badeværelser, 2 fladskærms-tv, stor altan og sofa-arrangement. Vi boede på 19. etage og havde et flot udsigt.
Hotel was very close to all the different attractions south beach has to offer. I didn't have to call many cabs most stuff was within walking distance. Hotel staff was friendly and professional and the rooms were clean and comfortable. I've stayed here twice and would stay again! The rooms were a little small but comfortable. Other than that o can't think of anything I didn't like.
Nothing Wifi sucks
Close to the beach and attractions. We got there early and was able to use the shower down stairs to get dress until our room was ready. They didn't clean our room on Sunday. When they cleaned the room on Monday, they didn't change the sheets, all they did was change the pillow cases and made the bed up. We had to take cold showers.
Good location, and we stayed in a suite with an adjacent outdoor patio/seating area, which was awesome. This trumped all the negatives listed herein. Had to call multiple times and finally stand in the lobby until staff took seriously my request for a set of sheets for the pullout bed . Minor issues with the room: phone was dead ("we'll come fix it right away" and never see them again); stereo in the room was dead (no big deal), faucet handle broken which made turning on/off bathroom faucet mildly challenging. Noise -- Loud until late is understandable because it's Miami Beach, but seriously having the garbage truck smashing bins around for what felt like forever right outside the window at 7am was a bit much.
the location was Great , open bar , the bed are comfy . i like the decor the phone in the room wasn't working , had to called the receptionist from cell phone i didn't mind but you had to called like 3 or 4 times before someone picked up ... No one ever came to fix the phone . the WiFi signal was weak so there with little to no services ... we spend 3 night and two of those night we had water leaking from the room about us ,, So they were a big puddle of water in the room and bathroom .... Almost fell the first night after calling the lobby like someone came looked and it and never came back... the second night no one came .. We didn't even get sorry for the inconvenience .. the phone was never fix ... So we didn't really have a comfortable stay it was unsanitary . the water could of been coming from the toilet above us .. who know i was very disappointed
I have paid $100.00 incidental up on check in and I have been informed that the money will be refunded within three days by hotel personnel when I was checking out, however It has been more than three weeks and I didn't get back my refund yet. I have called a week before to find out the reason and the guy on the phone hold me on the phone for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, he told me that the money was not claimed when you were checking out and also told me he just initiate the refund,the money will be in my account within three days but still I don't get my money back.
The location and open bar Thr huge roaches in the room, I was worried they would get in my luggage but being I live in Atlanta and that's a known thing it didn't offset my stay.
Location great People slamming doors at all hours. Late night(5:00 am return reveled Liked staff very much! Rooms need upgrade
The closeness to everything. Wet willies,Mangos,the cleavlander, Larios, and the beach. My room was so small, bathroom was extremely small. The shower had no hot water. I was scared to sleep under the covers so I slept on top of the bed.
The fact that WiFi was offered and was not available ; also they ask for 100 dollars hold back and tell you, you will get it back at checkout, but really the 100 dollars are for the pack refrigerator that is in the room!!! To me that is a trick on getting you to buy something that you never asked for...
Close to the beach Dirty sheets relocated was not informed regarding transfer. Also the house keepers were not clean or atentive. Staff was rude.
I liked that the room was quiet and very clean. In addition, this hotel is located about a 5 min walk away from Miami Beach. There was plenty of shops and nightlife to attend while there and the staff was helpful even though most of the guests were being unreasonably difficult. No they do not allow you to pay with a prepaid credit card, yes they do have a 100 dollar hold they place on your credit card that they give back the business day following your check out, and no they do not have free valet parking. I paid 40 dollars a night to have my vehicle parked and taken care of for me. This is great considering that the nearest parking garage is 5 blocks away and charges 20 per day. The only thing I can say that I didn't like was the staff not being prepared to answer guests questions and their reaction to jump to conclusions before they researched an answer. I paid for a single night of valet parking , and the following morning decided to pay for a second day. When I checked out and went to get my keys from the valet they refused to give me my keys and accused me of not paying. I had to bring the staff and the valet to the front desk and had them see that I had paid the day before and after they still had an attitude like I was stealing from them. Next I get to the questions. Over the course of the 2 days I stayed there I heard guests ask questions that were easy to answer but the guests were given vague answers or attitude for asking said questions. One question that was asked my second day I was there was " How do I get to the basketball arena from here" , which got a response of "use your gps on your phone or call an uber." No need for the attitude , I understand everyone has bad days so I hope this was only an isolated incident.
Beliggenheden var god. Der var ingen info omkring ture eller andet, personalet vidste ikke meget om Miami eller hvad man kunne fortage sig.
Alt i alt ganske fint hotel, få parkeringspladser, men parkering hos hotellet ved siden af til en lidt højere pris. Dette var egentlig fint nok, og i løbet af dagen, kunne man ringe ned til receptionen og bede om at få hentet bilen inden for ca 15 min. Tidlig morgen og aften kunne det ikke lade sig gøre da receptionisten var alene og heller ikke kunne oplyse nummeret på hotellet ved siden af.
Beliggenhed med terrasse ud mod godt strøg både foran og bagved Hotelværelset. var meget slidt
personale var sure og bestemt ikke imødekommende, vi aflyste de sidste 3 dage af vores ophold på hotellet, alligevel har de hævet pengene på vores konto og de er nu umulig at få svar fra
It was centrally located location for a international Business meeting. The expoense was not justified by the quality of the hotel
Just the location and the nightlife "knowledge" of the concierge The Rooms were too old-fashioned. The Bathroom was smaller then 4m2. The elevators were bad smelling. And to have access to the fitness you had to pass through the old linen storage.
Food superb on the two occasions we had lunch. The restaurant staff very friendly and efficient. Weird smell in lifts. This was probably the cleaning agent but it smells awful.
The location is terrific, the outside pool and pool dj is awesome. Plus the lobby is aesthetically pleasing. The rooms are terribly small and all white. Not in a cool way, but in a "one flew over the coo-coo's nest way". VERY LAME for 2014. They need to renovate this property asap. Also, nothing inside the room is clean. The little throw rug in the room had debris and old un-vacuumed crumbs all over. Very nasty.
The location, the pool and some of the staff are great. The rooms are also fairly comfortable even though they are well outdated. This place is the most absurdly expensive place even by south beach standards. It is really pathetic what they charge for food and drinks. If it wasn't for the scenic pool no one would stay here. During our stay the beach club had a pimp soliciting business very loudly on multiple days whom the hotel refused to kick out despite multiple parties complaint. The Delano is a magnet for sketchy characters. The place is surviving off of its reputation and pool alone. Go here if you don't mind being gouged and enjoy the occasional strung out pimp at the beach, but if you're looking for a modern luxury hotel, this isn't it.
This hotel has the most friendly staff who always welcome you back. Best pool, pool bar and DJ experience. The sushi restaurant in the lobby is outstanding. My all white decorated room faced the ocean and had spectacular view of beach. Highly recommend this property. The gym could be upgrade and/ or located in a different part of hotel (it feels like being in the dungeon of the hotel). The cable sometimes goes in and out.
Cleanliness and comfort. Pool area wasn't welcoming. Snobby attitudes.
Staff were excellent. Great customer service. Very friendly. Food prices were a bit high.
Great pool, great service, classy crowd
They tried to solve the small problems as they appeared The location and the view are amazing, the decoration and the swimmingpool areas are very unique. A hotel like this should have free wifi: it is ridiculous to have a fee of $15 /day not for the money but for the principle. The rooms are not big; I was in an upper floor but the lower floors are very noisy as there are parties in the hotel almost every night
The Delano was a beautiful hotel with an awesome pool and atmosphere. The staff was friendly and overall really cool. Great for a one time indulgence. The rooms were a bit small and our floor was sandy upon arrival. The all white decor was ok, but really let you know if something wasn't clean, and unfortunately many things on our bed had stains. As for the prices, they were absurd. There wasn't a single thing that was complimentary here. 30 dollars for wifi for two days, overpriced cocktails, food and drink and the biggest offense of all was the fact that you had to pay more than starbucks prices for coffee in the morning. Seriously not ok for the price you pay for just staying there. Lastly, the sushi bar was just awful, 3 pieces in and we closed our check.
I was brought up that if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. I will not ever stay here again.
Roaches while packing to leave, smelled musty, unprofessional front desk young lady, Ice machines across the street, parking 32 dollars a night rm way to small for doubles, one night was too long Roaches while packing to leave, smelled musty, unprofessional front desk young lady, Ice machines across the street, parking 32 dollars a night rm way to small for doubles, one night was too long
Location is excellent. They charged us an extra fee U$15.00 per day, according them the hotel is a resort, but we didn´t agree, this is not a resort at all. Room is very small, very tiny and room service is mediocre, I left on the floor a drops paper on porpous and it was left behind for 5 days. They offer a free shuttle to/from airport but the time table does not fit our needs at all. The price was so so, but when you add the "resort fee" and city taxes it becames so expensive.
unfriendly bartender Did not like the fee added on to the room for the supposedly free shuttle service that was late to arrive in the morning. We were forced to grab a cab to the airport.
The hotel is just one block away from Ocean Drive's most popular places. Cozy, clean and relaxed atmosphere with a reasonable price for that location... Staff is very friendly and trying to solve any problem occured... If you are not happy with the noise until 5am, maybe you should ask for upper rooms or look for some other hotel inside the city... No free car park (like the other hotels and places in Miami Beach); so you should add 1.25/hr parking price to your room rate (12pm - 9am free parking).. At check - in; they charge our credit card arround usd100 as deposit for any possible mini bar expenses or damages ocured to the room; but they did not cancel this amount from our cards after check out for a very long time; they should be much more quick about that...
hotel staff was extremely friendly and helped immediately in an emergency
Excellent "fre drink fron 7 to 8 pm..and also the location was very good There isn't wifi into the room only in the reception ( were there is confuson)
Shelley Hotel is conveniently located in the heart of South Beach. I called in advance to confirm we had a king-sized bed and we were assured we did. However, once we arrived we were given two double beds and the staff was very unhelpful. We also had to be switched to a cleaner room. However, even the final room had linens that did not smell fresh.
hppy hour. 19-20 p.m. all alcohol drinks for free very dark rooms, not enough light
I'd totally recommend that hotel; because of its location. It's located in the center of Miami beach, in a very very convenient location and it's very convenient and fun to stay there.
It was very close to the beach and clubs. Rooms are small but clean
Very good location, excellent staff and rooms are great
The comfort That the water got turned off in the middle of my stay.
beliggenhed, personale og dejlig terrasse Poolen var mikro
God beliggenhed i centrum af south beach Miami, med gåafstand til shopping, restaurenter og strand Man kunne høre alt hvad naboerne snakkede om, ALT! Sengene var dårlige - gamle - man faldt ind i midten af dem...
Vi havde meget store problemer med at få tildelt værelse der svarede til det vi havde booket (og betalte for), bla blev vi informeret om at hotellet slet ikke rådede over den type af værelse... og først efter (på 2. dagen - til en anden receptionist) at have vist dem deres egen website, og rgtig meget brokkeri, fik vi det ønskede værelse. Ansæt kvalificeret personale, og se at få færdiggjort værelserne, der alle virker ufærdige og umøblerede.
The absolute best hotel. Everything was perfect
The pool is closed very early
Beautiful hotel great night life Overpriced
We were placed in the tower which mostly was dedicated to business men, besides that our floor was full of young people who came to that place just to have fun for a few days. They were disrespectfully loud all day long. The rooms are tiny, I was hoping to have a jacuzzi tab but it was only a shower cab. The walk to the swimming pool was through two towers and people who always were dresses for different conferences. Prices for food are really expensive and it didn't worth spending on it. I would not recommend this hotel for family oriented people, it is mostly for party people and businessmen. See above
I had a lot of charges on my card and I don't know why. I didn't remove anything from mini bar. I'm still waiting on a follow up call from billing.
This is an over priced hotel and all the hotel saff were rude and not welcoming . I won't be spending my money at this hotel again.
The property is amazing! The pools are great - got a little crowded on the long weekend - but very enjoyable. We had an oceanfront room and the views were breathtaking. The beach access was really good and you got free beach chairs. Its a little away from south beach and all the shops and restaurants - but we knew that going in. Room service was not up to par - they routinely forgot to replenish our coffee/ sugar. The food was just OK - and the price for food and drinks was exorbitant. Valet only parking and it was $45 per day!!
Location, room ,restorants,everything Fees for beech furniture rent
Stayed in the Chateau tower which was better than Versailles. It's a bit north of South Beach but not too bad.
Amazing hotel. A little bit of a struggle to get a pool chair in the morning, but the room and views were spectacular A little far from all the excitement in south beach
Food prices in the restaurants inside were too expensive.
Pool and spa nicely designed Got there and found there were nerds and lipstick on the carpet as well as a big wet mark. I called front desk to see if the room had been cleaned and they said they didn't known but they could connect me to house keeping to see if I could get someone to come clean it. I said "can't you do that" she just said would u like me to give you house keeping number or not. Then on Kayak it soecifically says on some options "no breakfast w this deal" so I picked the higher price option bc it did not say that. I get to hotel and they tell me Breakfast is not included. Then I try to go to spa and they charge me more money even after I showed them My Kayak reservstion says spa included. Later that night I come back to the room to find it was never cleaned. I wouldn't even have complained about any of this had I not paid over $400 for the one night I stayed here.
Location was good, friendly stuff and nice pool area. Unclean fitted carpet in a room, I expected flagstone floor which I saw in a picture.
The room was very large, clean and the bed ok. The hotel is very clean. The pool is ok. I enjoyed my stay in Miami in this hotel. The noise in the other rooms, with the doors!
I stayed only one night.This motel the water preshier was highand low ,there was no drain fitting in the tub..no waether striping wind was howeling threw the door. The pool area looked 30 years old.
The location Poor lighting , hotel seem very old
Hotell staff, access to beach, shopping Pool not working, internet not working
It's location Virtually everything. The room was tired, the closet was disgusting, the drawers were filthy. The bathroom was disgusting.
Nothing at all The hotel is dirty unkempt and a disgrace - do not use it
We liked Chris at the fron tdesk. He new he was in a substandard hotel but we told him that he should be someplace worthy of his effort! The two rooms we eneded up having were both very dated and old.
Near the beach. Comfortable beds One day not enough towels. Another day one of the bath robes removed.
Room amenities staff location Nothing
This Marriott is a beautiful hotel. You walk right onto the beach. The staff is wonderful. They are attentive, friendly, courteous, and overall just genuine about wanting to please customers. This hotel is one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed at when taking into consideration the overall experience (i.e. Location, staff, cleanliness, accommodations, pool area, etc) The rooms are a little on the small side.
We were down for the Miami Boat Show, which we attend every year. I must say, through all the years we have attended, this was the cleanest, most comfortable & friendly hotel we have stayed in. The staff was great, very attentive. Cleanliness is most important for us and this place passed with flying colors. We also had our puppy with us and everyone was great with her. The newly renovated room was super cozy. The entire hotel is undergoing renovations but it wasn't even a bother. Looking forward to seeing the end result! I would stay here again. Honestly, the only downfall was location. We were a bit farther south and A taxi ride vs walking distance from where we needed to be BUT we would totally stay here again.
Good location in South Beach and on beach. Chair and towels included in resort fee. Small Pool
The location is great because it's a beachfront hotel. Front desk staff is very courteous and nice. Not the service I expected. The valet staff is not the most welcoming at all. No warm greeting or smiles at all. I was really dissatisfied with the quality of the room. I had called ahead to get a preference of room. I got a room that was on a low floor and with no city or beach view like their website states. The worst part is that this particular room has a balcony that is in the view of the next rooms balcony. Meaning that our neighbors can walk out of their room and look directly into our room. We had to keep the blinds closed the whole stay for privacy. That was the worse part. Very disappointed. Lastly there wasn't a hairdryer and housekeeping opened out door an hour before checkout time.
Pool was out of commission, there was jack hammering going on early literally outside our balcony. Staff was not responsive to complaints. Horrible stay. Horrible staff
The location The family room which is too small for 2 adultes with 2 kids
Great access to the beach and ocean drive. Clean, great looking rooms with fantastic views. Also very attentive and professional staff! Highly recommend! Would be nice if the recliners, towels and umbrellas on the beach were complementary to guest of the hotel. But, south beach in general is pricey.
The customer service and the people at check in and at the hotel Overall were great . I loved whole time there , nothing negative to report.
Location, quiet and staff bathroom sliding doors and dirty floors.
The rooms were beautifully appointed The hotel was under construction which we knew and expected. That was not a problem. But the service was terrible and the service people even a bit rude, The common places were not clean and were often trashy, and overall it did not live up to the standards of the cheapest Marriott I've ever stayed at.
The valet and restaurants service was ok. It was dated. The sheets in the bed were torn up. The phone was dirty. The fridge was broken (found out about that after 200 in good spoiled ). There was some woman that I could only say was a pimp yelling and cursing on her cell phone. When we asked if she could be removed they told us that she brings them a lot of business and is there all of the time. The elevator was old and their food was disgusting. I would never even walk through that place again even after they renovate
The hotel was very clean, most staff members are very polite and friendly. The facilities provides adult pool separate to the regular pool for those trying to have an adult only trip. I had a few dislikes and not sure about returning. Staff tried their best to accommodate us for our concerns. My biggest dislike was the construction, all pools close at 8pm, and approach taking by some staff members to the facilities selective concerns with my family members.
Pool was awesome, a few seconds to the beach. Very nice looking lobby, super comfy beds. Construction everywhere. I was not expecting it and would have chosen somewhere else had I known. Did not make for a relaxing day laying out by the pool with the constant pounding of a jack hammer in the background. Drinks and food were super overpriced for the size and amount of alcohol. Everything included 18-20% gratuity which will catch you off guard.
The only issue was all the construction we were NOT warned about!!
Relaxed pool environment Service by staff was slow
Staff was very friendly, courteous and accomodating, food and drinks were delicious. The beds were so comfortable that I did not want to get up. The convenient access to the beach was great, as well as the beach chair amenity, twas welcomed! Due to the inconveniences my sister, cousins and I were given complimentary tickets for drinks and breakfast. Some staff were not truthful when faced with conflicting situations, which led to a lot of unwanted and unnessary aggravation, and wasted time. A lot of renovation was, and still is taking place, which also added to 2 of 4 elevators being unaccessible. Thus waiting for the elevator was a task. And getting on the elevator was another task, then getting to your room or the lobby was another task in itself. Had I known about the renovation that I was not told about, I would have booked another hotel. The room was not a replica of the luxurious room that was pictured. The refrigerator was not working, thank God I did not have my kids with me.
Eden Roc's resort is nice. The private beach and pools are the best part of the hotel. Cabana restaurant was also good - but, they don't serve brunch and stop serving breakfast at 11am (a little early if you're on vacation). The food is a bit over priced as well. It's a good place to bring your family. DONT STAY AT THIS HOTEL. WAIT UNTIL THEYVE FINISHED RENOVATING. The majority of the hotel is under construction. The entire lobby is closed off with white curtains due to the construction, leaving only the elevators and front desk assessable. The set-up makes the hotel dark and depressing. The decor is outdated. The staff at the front desk was not friendly at all. Most of all, the rooms in the main tower are NOT what you will expect them in a resort. We stayed in a deluxe king room and it was tiny! The view was terrible! If you're going to stay here you have to stay in the ocean view tower and don't be afraid to pay for the best rooms available: only then will your stay be worth your buck.
Right next to Fountainbleu. On the beach. Solid amenities. Nice bar scene at night. A little up from southbeach. Wish it was closer but you cant complain. Long walk to convenient stores
Renovations were taking place during my stay. It was extremely loud. Difficult to enjoy my room or time at the pool.
I was grateful that I was upgraded to a suite, but I think there are better options on Miami beach. Would rather spend a little more to stay at a better resort. Facilities out of order. Neither the men's nor women's bathroom in the lobby was functioning. Elevators not working properly- had to wait 15 minutes for an elevator!! Mosquitos all over my room. The mattress on my bed felt more like a box spring than a mattress. It was not comfortable at all. One of the people who delivered room service to my room suggested I should add the "additional gratuity" because the hotel doesn't give him any of the gratuity that's already included. Overall, this hotel was FAR from a luxury experience. Needs lots of work.
Canceled reservation with one day's notice.
Overall very good experience. Excellent location and service. Rooms are clean. Spa was lovely. Upper pool is under construction and spa pool in bad need of renovation. The beach facing bar/ restuarant will also be a huge amenity when open (in the spring?) but I missed having a second food option onsite and ended up going next door.
Kelly at check in, superb. Ziggy, beach manager above and beyond. The beautiful lady who delivered room service at 1 AM and serenaded my daughter with a lovely Happy Birthday. All the staff were friendly, and excellent! The lobby decor. Also, no coffee shop.
I was charged twice for my staying and although I've contacted the site several times and it's been three weeks I still couldn't get my money back
Location, pool area, room & bed comfort. It is located right out of the loud crowd on Ocean Drive, so it is a lot more chilled and relaxed. Overall, much better than all other hotels on South Beach. I can't quite say it was a true 5 star experience in terms of appearance and for the premium price. But again, a lot better than the other hotels around.
Proximity to beach and Lincoln Mall. Our room was right off the pool which was super convenient. Front desk staff couldn't have been nicer especially when I disputed some charges at checkout out. The facilities need maintenance. Particularly the pool area. Broken tiles and the bottom of the pool was chopping off in at least one large area. The bathroom also could use some maintenance. The vanity top had a chopper out of it and theme leftist was rusting in areas.
Staff, location Not up to Ritz standards! More like a motel
The first night was a disaster. At about 5:45 p.m. I called down to report a loud fan/ motor annoying noise. They said they would send someone up. We left about 20 minutes later for a dinner reservation.When we came back later that evening it was late nothing had changed. we were to tied to do anything so we tried to go to bed. Sleep did not come for either of us easily and we were up a good part of the night. The next day I complained and the girl offered us a $50.00 credit and would move us down from the top floor in the same proximity. the noise was probably from the motors on the roof. Looking out after agreeing I saw all the fans from the building next door so I called back and said it was not acceptable. I was turned over to the Rooms manager (Emily) who was excellent we were moved closer to the front of the building, no noise good sleep a Ritz Carlton experience. First day terrible second day great. Not sure how to evaluate Sid Barish
Location is perfect for experiencing all that South Beach has to offer; staff was fantastic and very accommodating; food was very good; The way of the travel world now appears to be to charge little bits (or more) for every little thing, this was no exception.
Every staff member said hello to me. Staff was very friendly The Spa experience was ok, Massage for a deep tissue was weak. The Sauna was not on, I turned it on but should be preheated for guests or what good is it. For $440 for 2 - 50 minutes massages I expect more.
I like the location and the beach area. The room had big stains on the carpet & it was not well maintained or cleaned.
afslappet Morgenmaden, mindre og mindre dag for dag, ikke at udvalget var stort fra start. - Dårlig lydissolering.
Ok holtel, de har ikke forstand på at organiserer morgenmaden som er mere amerikansk end kontinentalt (ikke til at få ordentlig brød). De elektroniske låse på dørene virkede ikke ordentlig. Badeværelsesdøren bandt. Små, men iriterende detaljer, som kunne være klaret i forvejen
afslappet stil Morgenmaden der blev mindre og mindre udvalg dag for dag .Ikke at det var stort i forvejen .
Booked this hotel last minute for a surprise getaway for my boyfriend and myself. It was a good deal, clean room, shuttle to/from airport, beach towels, happy hour from 7-8pm. Some of the staff members were not the friendliest but then there was one older woman who was very helpful and was always smiling.
Free drinks at happy hour, located on the main strip one block from the beach and great restaurants, friendly staff Lacked a little in cleanliness but nothing I couldn't look past.
Open bar for an hour Friendly staff Close to everything Clean I wish we had access to a microwave
Really close to beach and shopping area. Free happy hour was nice. DO NOT! Stay on the first floor, you will catch all of the lobby and outside traffic noise. No early check in.
It's close to the beach. Friendly staff. Happy hour free 7-8 No hookah
At the front desk, the desk clerk was nice. Many pretty, friendly girls were about. Even though the two rooms we reserved were prepaid, the manager allowed our money to be returned to us when she determined the problem with our conformation and inability to stay was not of our making. Was not allowed to check in. Clerk could not find our reservations even though we had a conformation number. Left after about ten to fifteen minutes of searching.
Prime location, wonderful + accommodating staff, great price. Coming back in March!!! That I had to leave!
Charming rooms art deco luxury . Fancy feel, boutique south beach style. Sexy, small bar in Loby, 1blk to beach. Friendly staff. Great price. All good for my stat.
Perfect location. One block off the beach. Right in the heart of restaurants and bars. The noise outside. The bars are open late and it was loud until 4 or 5 in the morning.
The staff were really kind No one came to tidy up the room, empty trash, check in time is at 3pm, doesn't work well with early flights
The decor of the room The housekeepers dont replace bathroom tools once they are used
I appreciated the great customer service at this boutique hotel, as well as, the great price, convenience since its a block from the beach, and the free happy hour between 7-8. We will definitely be coming back!
The staff was very friendly for the most part and the location was in close proximity to Eden Rock where I attended a conference but couldn't stomach the extra 150 per night. The decor is so dated. The carpet, drapes, doors, fixtures, etc were in desperate need of updating. its relatively clean but so warn out. The room had an odd L shaped layout with no real purpose for extra space. An old tube TV, like 27 inches in an delapidated armoire that was literally 25 feet from the foot of my bed. needed binoculars.
I appreciated the staff upfront. The breakfast was great! The view was awesome. Due to me booking the room via a 3rd party website, I had to wait for a extended period of time to get my room. The front desk were doing everything they could to help me. In the room it was old. The TV didn't work and there were no towels in the room. So I had to go down stairs twice. The towels were old. After that it was ok. I would stay again. The old room is no fault of the staff.
My room wasn't ready they put me in a smaller room with a single king size bed, I was traveling with my wife and two kids. the next next day I had to check out spend the entire day outside until 4pm then they didn't bring me my bags until six pm. When I asked to speak and complain to the manager. He offered an insignificant resolution that still left us completely unsatisfied.
that they "upgraded" me to a room for my inconvenience. The upgraded room was a so shitty and out dated the bathroom with black and white tiles looked like a black and white checker board ,, the room looked haunted ,,, the toilet was running all night long ,,, you couldn't flush the toilet ,, and it was just not worth the money!!!!
Me & my boyfriend loved the main lobby decor it was great. The room was small and old tvs.
View, No working shower, had to pay $45.00 to park my veichle the hotel! I mean are you kidding me, that's like going out to eat, and the paying the restraint to use their bathroom! Then I get up at 6am to get ready for my 8 am meeting, and the shower does not work!!! Unreal, sink was stopped up, bell hop watched me struggle down the stairs with my luggage. Terrible staff and service, if I wanted no service I would have stayed in a day's inn!!
The convenience to the beach. Staff friendlyness and helpfulness. The price was very reasonable, the hotel structure and arts are beautiful. The hotel needs a renovation ASAP, the pool was extremely too small for the amount of people staying at the resort, they need to build more pools and perhaps a few hot tubs. The water front restaurant and bars needs renovation, cleanliness and more variety on drinks and food.
Liked cleanliness and large rooms
The lobby of the hotel Rude staff, charging for the Minni Bar every after paying for hotel. Old tv that didnt work.
View and staff That I couldn't stay longer
Nothing!!! Ashley at check in was ridiculously horrible!!! Manger came out he was horrible & no help!!! I was given t wrong info abt check not my fault but I'm t one they looking at crazy!!!
