Small room but Great king size bed.. only downfall was the restaurant downstairs and no where to park, however valet parking is avalaible if needed.Overall a good stay if you like to be in the thick of it all.

Internet problems

Posted 3-Jul-2014
One night the Internet was down altogether for the entire evening. On the plus side, the location is fantastic and the front desk staff is very nice. On the negative side, my "view" was of the side of another building 10 feet away, it takes forever for the shower to get warm, and there isn't much soundproofing.

Noisy but in the heart of things on Ocean Drive

Posted 22-Jun-2014
Pros: Nothing
Cons: It's a hotel for youngsters who want to party.
Location: Right on Ocean Drive so surrounded by clubs and bars
No porter service so difficult parking car outside hotel and getting luggage out and into hotel lobby. Very noisy with clubs and other guests coming back at all hours of the morning, shouting and rather worse for drink. Rooms small.

Great hotel right on Ocean Drive.

Posted 12-May-2014
Pros: Unique room and close to the beach.
Cons: The door separating the reception area to the rooms should be locked and require card key access.
Great hotel right on Ocean Drive. Right across from the beach. Good food in the restaurant. The room was arty and fun, very clean and bed was comfortable. The only drawback is that it can be loud being on Ocean Drive as the clubs don't seem to close down!

Great Location!

Posted 20-Apr-2014
We stayed only one night in Miami. We picked this hotel because of the location. It is right in the middle of everything! Tons of bars and restaurants and right across from the beach. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The only draw back was our room was right above the alley for the kitchen so the windows were blacked out so you couldn't see the alley and it was VERY loud until the restaurant closed for the night. This wasn't a problem though because we were there to enjoy South Beach night life anyway so we weren't in the room much.

Great location, but that's it.

Posted 19-Mar-2014
Hotel is right in the middle of the South Beach action on Ocean Drive, only seconds from the pounding beat and the restaurants and bars, and across the street from the beach. Good thing is they have heavy doors that block the sound, so you can actually sleep. Valet parking is $25 a day, but at least that means you can park since it's at a premium in this area. There are no amenities such as a pool or spa, but remember you're paying for the location, and that's about it. My "king bed" was two singles pushed together, with a mattress that was only slightly thicker than a laptop computer, and lumpy to boot. The window was blacked out so that people in the alley next to it couldn't see in. There were no drawers, so I never bothered to unpack; I just put my suitcase on a chair and took out what was needed. This would not be a place for a romantic honeymoon; instead, it's just a place to leave your stuff when you head out to South Beach.

Good Choice - Good Value - Great Location

Posted 30-Jan-2014
There are so many hotels to choose from on south beach that it's difficult to choose. I was initially put off this hotel by the scores on most websites including Expedia but after searching SO many times always came back to this one and I'm pleased to say that it was a good choice. I booked a standard king room, it was absolutely fine. Clean, comfortable, functional and value for money. Bed - huge king bed and comfy. Bit squeaky but no sleepless nights! Bathroom - was a shower room, nice design, good size, shower cubicle great but shower pressure average. No complaints though always hot water, wait a few mins for it to come through though, it will!! Safe, minibar/fridge, desk, good TV, great A/C and ceiling fan, table and a couple of chairs. Small wardrobe but fine for a few nights. Everything you actually need to be honest! Common areas are clean and all in good condition. Room cleaning - fine, no issues, we always folded our towels and placed on the edge of the shower, were replaced with clean every day. Reception - nice and friendly. Helpful on hotel info and got us a good cab back to the airport. Could do with a proper concierge to advise on information outside of the hotel but there's always the internet. Wifi - great signal and fast and FREE!! Fab!! Bar and restaurant is run by a separate company who were always good. Good value for money and great service!!

Can be recomended

Waldorf Towers has a great location on Ocean Drive. I have previous stayed at other hotels on Ocean Drive and South Beach and this has been the best so far. It is not a 5 star hotel, but it is clean, has friendly and helpful staff, soft bed, good internet connection and a safe that fits your laptop. These are maybe small things, but I do travel a lot around the world and I do appreciate this in a hotel. Next time I go to Miami I try to book a room here again.
