An impeccable staff, beautiful room, friendliness

Posted 28-Jul-2014
Pros: The staff, the room, everything; beautiful.
Cons: give those great pillows away at checkout
Location: whatever you want
Everything; it was great. The view, the accessibility, the staff, the great pillows; the pillows are unreal; it is the only reason to go to sleep.

Nice location, amenities ok

Posted 28-Jul-2014
The room is fine. There was a bench at the end of our bed, but no couches. Just 1 chair by the desk. Bathroom was nice, but only 1 sink. We stayed in the North building. The elevator was old, but secure. The hallway looked old. The rooftop terrace was nothing like the photo. The cushions were wet and there wasn't a single umbrella. The bar was closed.

High end and Close to everything

Posted 22-Jul-2014
Pros: Great Service, Clean and Inviting Rooms, excellent design and attention to detail and service. Excellent Location
Location: Beach is right across, The pool is small but classy and clean. Food is excellent.
If you're looking to experience all that South Beach has to offer then, this is the place for you. The location is ideal (no need to rent a car) HOWEVER --it's located next one of the clubs so it can be loud so if you're looking for a quiet night after the hustle and bustle of South Beach either upgrade to an expensive penthouse room (which are very quiet) or go somewhere else. I stayed, paid for the upgrade and had a great time enjoying loud when I wanted and quiet at my whim not someone else's - The Hotel had great service, well decorated, excellent design and clean rooms.

Cute hotel, way too noisy to sleep!

Posted 14-Jul-2014
Pros: Rooms are very nice.
Cons: Noise level.
Lovely rooms, lovely staff, but unfortunately The Clevelander next door is an open-air nightclub that finishes at 5 a.m. I had a room in tower 2 and the noise level was ridiculous. I'm surprised that there are no noise level standards for a 4 star hotel. The flashing lights also came in the cracks around the blinds.

Thank you for your comments and observations. With our active bustling hotel located here in the heart of South Beach's Ocean Drive, with all the activity can be noisy. We will be modifying the windows in the historic Art Deco this year to help minimize the noise for the comfort of our guests. We look forward to having you here with us again soon!

Great hotel for partying, right by fun clubs with beautiful women. Bicycles, water, and towels provided. No need to have a car there. Able to walk, bike, or take a short cab ride to everywhere. Ate at Kitchens restaurant north of the hotel, pleased with the food. Joe's Stone Crab is a great dining experience, do not miss the chance to go there. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful week and enjoyed all that South Beach had to offer, and the Breakwater was a great place for it to happen.

We had a wonderful and exciting experience in Miami Florida. The hotel Esplendor was excellent in their service and attitudes. The staff was outstanding in helping us get information about where to go and see while we were there. The breakfast bar was really tasty. Thanks again for the wonderful experience! Mr. and Mrs. Brooks.

Great SoBe Location but Staff Could Improve

Posted 7-Jul-2014
Pros: Great comfy King bed, big bathroom with rain shower, great location
Cons: Staff could be more helpful and security is lacking - people can easily get to any floor or into the pool without a key card. Not really safe.
Location: Beach, Bars, Clubs, Restaurants, Shopping!!! Literally everything is within walking distance. No taxi necessary (other than to the airport)
Great location right on Ocean Dr in the middle of all the trendy hotels, shops and restaurants. This is a noisy hotel - you will hear noise at the pool and likely in your room. So if your plan is to stay in, go to bed early, and get some R&R - this is not the hotel for you. If you want to stay out late and party and be a part of the nightlife noise, then you're in the right spot. The pool is more of a sauna - do not expect to hop in and cool down - it is warm like a spa but still enjoyable Staff at this hotel needs a little help. We requested additional bath towels and pool towels and had to call back multiple times before they were delivered. Security is also lacking at this hotel. They tell you that a key card is required in the elevator to get to your floor, but if you take the stairs you can easily avoid that. Also, no key card necessary to get to the pool. Doesn't really give you the feeling that the hotel is extremely safe.
