Nice Hotel Close to many attractions near beach!

Posted 3-Feb-2016
Pros: Clean Lobby, Eating Area was nice, Bathrooms in Lobby were Clean. The patio area always kept clean and inviting for guest.
Cons: Wifi !!!! The Wifi was terrible I was not able to access Wifi the whole trip and this is something that was advertised when booking.
Location: Location was very close to beach. Lots of restaurants and nightlife near by.
I was very impressed with our overall stay at the Essex Hotel. As soon as we arrived hotel staff made us feel welcomed and were willing to take our bags until our room was ready for Check-In. The staff took time to explain the local area and where to go to eat and for entertainment. It was a nice way to begin our vacation.

Expensive!

Posted 2-Feb-2016
Great location but a lot of late night street noise at weekends. Checked in late due to flight delay and was allocated room #205. Room had a major damp and nicotine smell. Asked to change rooms but this wasn't possible as the hotel was full. Was offered a $25 food credit inlieu of room change. Hotel in need of renovating and had a "tired" look about it. Breakfast choice limited but adequate. Restaurant staff struggled to understand my English accent. Hotel adequate but expensive and wouldn't stay again.

It was fine, didn't like the breakfast and you could hear anything that was happening around you in your room.

Topp läge på South Beach

Posted 20-Jan-2016
Pros: Maten på hotellet och läget.
Cons: Lite målning och bättre internet vore en enkel åtgärd för att öka betyget.
Location: Allt möjligt beach party och sitseeing
Bode här med fru och tonårsbarn. Mycket bra läge nära till allt. Lite ljud blir det alltid med ett sånt läge men det får man ta. Bra parkeringsgarage på 13de gatan bara 20 dollar per dygn. Mycket god mat på restaurangen och fin frukost. Topp betyg för resturangen. Hotellet är gammalt med vad det innebär men också ett historiskt hus som omnämns i turistinformation. Kul att bo här.

The staff were the best part of this hotel. Everyone we encountered while staying here went above and beyond to help us. Upgraded us to a suite upon arrival.

Nice stylish property, but largely outdated and in need of TLC. Hotel staff is helpful. Definitely not a 3 star hotel. Great location in the center of the Art Deco district.
