Nice location just a short stroll to the beach

Posted 17-Sep-2017
Pros: Location, Stlye.
Cons: The hotel comprises of a number of different accommodation options, so a guide should be handed out during check in.
Location: South Beach, and Shopping. If your thing is to drink and eat all day, this is for you!! Of not, consider staying at another location.
Check in was fine, but no explanation about how to get to the room. Even after using the lift, the cleaning staff did not seem to know where the room was. Eventually, after finding our room, the room was spacious and comfortable. The first evening was marred by the noise from a loud party in the adjoining room, which needed intervention 3 times by security to stop. The breakfast buffet was quite limited in choice.

Disappointing

Posted 28-Aug-2017
Pros: Location.
Cons: Needs updating badly
Location: Around the corner from the beach, walking distance to plenty of shopping and activities.
This hotel is very dated. The room had a stench to it that caused my chest to hurt, the tub was dirty, paint chips hanging from the ceiling, dead bugs in the ceiling light fixture, filthy curtains, the rug was coming up from the floor around the edges of the room and the bed was extremely small. They state it's a queen I say it's a full and myself and husband had to sleep on our sides to fit in the bed and we are not heavy people. We are thin. We were so uncomfortable we had to sleep in our clothes. Good thing it was a one night stay after our cruise before our flight home th next day. Our room was e114

Great place but lack some beach amenities

Posted 17-Aug-2017
Pros: Location perfect right off the ocean drive so not over crowded and you have place to drive your car. Rooms are amazing, very clean, very big, good de
Cons: Need to have a laundry service and not recommend guests to go 4 blocks away and use a laundromat.
Location: Great location on south beach, very close to beach so you can just walk by by away from busy street such as ocean drive. tons to do around
Everything about Essex House is just great. Pros: Location perfect right off the ocean drive so not over crowded and you have place to drive your car. Rooms are amazing, very clean, very big, good decor. Accessories with the rooms were great. Cons: Complimentary breakfast isn't good at all. Poor food quality. Checkout time is not flexible No free parking, ballet parking is highly over priced Don't have a laundry service or even drier machines to dry wet beach clothes. Have seen these in lot if hotels around the sea/oceans/lakes through out the country. Would love to definitely stay again.

Nice hotel close to beach.

Posted 13-Jul-2017
I enjoyed my stay and the amenities offered. This is a great place to stay if you are focused on going to the beach and enjoying the nightlife. Only complaint was that the housekeeping took my beach towel while organizing the room. I could not get my towel card without it and it ended up costing me a $15 fee.
