Great Art Deco hotel in the heart of South Beach

Posted 11-Mar-2014
My wife and I were looking for a Deco hotel within easy walking distance to the beach and all of the amenities that South Beach has to offer. We had a great stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and nicely decorated and surprisingly quiet - given that it was Spring Break. Our only complaint was the less than comfortable mattress. Otherwise an excellent place to stay. South Beach is awesome. They've done an amazing job breathing new life back into the Historic Art Deco hotels. I highly recommend the Heritage walking tours starting close to the hotel at 10th St and Ocean Drive.

Wonderful stay in a design classic!

Perfectly located, great staff and benefits from their partnership with the next door Clevelander hotel which adds further facilities. Wasnt a prob for me but for those wanting peace and quiet then the proximity to clevelander may be an issue; although youd prob avoid this area of Miami beach if you wanted peace and quiet so I doubt its an issue! A fantastic stay.

Great position

A great location close to everything but not too hectic. Room was a little tired and small. Walls pretty thin so quite noisy. Breakfast adequate. Staff friendly and helpful.

Nice quiet hotel right near the beach

Posted 11-Feb-2014
Pros: everything
I absolutely loved the Essex House Hotel. I was very pleasantly surprised by how clean, nice, and welcoming it was. It was very quite but if you wanted to be near some of the excitement you just had to walk a couple feet to the Clevelander which is its sister hotel. It is just as close to the beach as any hotel that is right on the strip but it is not nearly as run down or noisy as the hotels on the strip. the staff is also fantastic and very accommodating. We had a later flight on our last day and the hotel staff immediately extended our check out time with no issues at all. In short, I had a beyond fantastic stay and will always stay there when I am in Miami. I would recommend this hotel for anyone!
