Nice hotel. Close to the beach

Posted 9-Oct-2014
Rooms were not huge unless you stay in a suite. They were big enough for two people though.(bathroom and a king size bed. The hotel staff is really nice. They have complimentary breakfast which was a bonus. They have half off appetizers and alcohol from 4 to 8 everyday. A nice pool which is not huge but very relaxing. You can use the Clevelander hotel right next to it which has an outside pool with 3 bars and live music with a dj all day and night. Overall the stay was great and the hotel was clean and affordable.

Essex was an amazing place to stay. It's location is nice and close to the beach and shopping and entertainment. The staff is fantastic and I'd recommend all my friends and family to stay when visiting south beach!

Charming staff and beautiful hotel

Posted 3-Oct-2014
Pros: Rooms-clean,comfy bed,aircon, spacious Hotel staff, hotel resturant, location
We stayed for a 2 week holiday. We were always warmly greeted each day. helped with best places to eat. Front desk booked shopping tours, taxis you name it! The staff really went above and beyond . Room was always cleaned to perfection. The hotel lobby is gorgeous! Our room was lovely. No complaints. No noise like I'd read on trip advisor. The resturant attached to the hotel has the most Devine sushi. A must while staying.

Just right

Posted 25-Sep-2014
The hotel was located in close proximity to the beach and the strip. The staff was very nice and the hotel was clean. My room was just right except there were no dressers to put clothing in. Otherwise I was pleased with my stay

Lovely hotel in excellent location

Posted 20-Sep-2014
Pros: Staff friendliness and lovely breakfasts.
Cons: Lobby area is rather dark
Location: Ideal location for the beach and lots of restaurants nearby.
Just returned from a wonderful 10 night stay in The Essex. Staff were most pleasant and helpful especially Wally. On our arrival we received an upgrade to lovely suite 5 thanks to Chad and it was most comfortable. Towels and bottles of water were available at Reception when required.

Cons: Moped bathroom floors and vaccum everyday would be nice.
Location: You do a lot of walking. Traffic is heavy don't recommend driving around unless your familiar with area. Parking is full and caotic.
The staff at ESSEX Hotel where AWESOME! Very helpful with everything! Great location and the bed was nice and comfy. Anything we needed they bought too the room. From a ice bucket to more shampoo they where there!

Nice hotel in good location.

Posted 30-Aug-2014
Pros: The room was clean and comfortable. There was an iron & ironing board, and a hair dryer.
Cons: It was embarassing when a staff in the breakfast room stopped us and told us to throw those plastic cutlery, cups, bowls & plates in the bin.
Location: Five minutes walks to the beach. Lots of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Great just to swim and walk in the garden along the beach.
The hotel staffs were welcoming. I had used few local calls and I was pleased to find out later that it was free. It was lovely to have free lime drinks in a cooler provided opposite the reception counter, after a hot day out.

Decent hotel, very reasonably priced.

Posted 23-Aug-2014
Overall a good hotel if you want a cheap place right on south beach. The facility itself is a little dingy, especially the reception area. For the money, not bad.
