Excellent Hotel & Location

Posted 4-May-2015
Location: Location is great, very close to beach and bars!
You cannot go wrong with this hotel, value for money. The front of the hotel is spacious and it has a seating area which, is great for meeting people staying at the hotel. Free glass of wine 4pm every day and special rates at the restaurant for guest staying at the hotel. All staff members were friendly and helpful, they gave me loads of information. Wifi in the hotel is of a reasonable standard. I stayed in a superior room with a king bed which, was more than adequate for a 1 week stay and bathroom was very clean. This hotel just around the corner from the beach and bars.

“The best place to stay at South Beach”

Posted 28-Apr-2015
Pros: Everything !
Cons: WIFI
Location: Restaurants, beach, ocean drive, etc.
We have stayed at Essex House from April 18th to April 25th. I have reserved a superior king room but no such room was available when we arrived. So they propose to us to stay only one night in a standard room and then move to a spacious suite, which we kindly accept. The standard room is good...but small. The suite is much better, spacious, especially the bathroom with a jacuzzi. The staff is excellent...not enough words to describe their generosity. Special thanks to Keyleen at the front desk. The breakfast is good although there is only cold food.... bagels, muffins, toasts, etc. What is great in this hotel is its location..... 10th street and collins avenue..the heart of south beach. Only 2 min walk to ocean drive and 4 min walk to the beach. Although its proximity with the action on ocean drive, our room was quiet in the evening. We loved the fact that the hotel provide towels and bottled water for the beach each time we request. We mention also the happy hour daily from 16h30 and 17h30 and the fresh juice in the afternoon. The only cons is the wifi...some mornings it was not working....but its not a big deal. There is a desktop in the lobby. To resume...you cannot go wrong with Essex. We enjoy our stay we thank all the staff. Viva Essex and Viva South Beach !!!

Sehr schönes Hotel, zentrale Lage in South Beach, aber dadurch leider auch keine freien Parkplätze, die Parkhäuser sind sehr teuer. Das Hotel wirkt zu erst etwas "plüschig", mit dicken Teppichen in den Gängen, aber das Zimmer war sehr sauber. Das Frühstück ist von der Auswahl her deutlich besser als erwartet. Kann ich absolut weiter empfehlen, würde ich auch sofort wieder buchen.

FANTASTIC STAY

Posted 22-Apr-2015
Pros: we had a corner unit with a great view and a large window, the bed was a king bed and very nice. we liked everything the hotel had to offer.
Cons: the hotel has a nice small hometown feel with great service, the staff try very hard to keep there clients happy which was very nice. just keep smilin
Location: south beach is only a block away and the eating places are all around. shopping is everywhere.
This was our first trip to Miami and we stayed at the Essex hotel, what an awesome place to stay. everyone was great, valet parking personal, check in was so easy, and the staff in the lounge (Alisha and Ryan) were fantastic. its a 1 minute walk to the beach and everything is very close. We would 100% stay at this hotel again.
