Very clean and calm hotel right off the beach

Posted 27-Jul-2016
This a clean and vey quiet hotel right off the very busy and tourist trap that is ocean drive lol. The only gripe i had was that the breakfast left a lot desired but with its location to the beach and multiple places to eat on both washington ave and ocean drive it made up for it. I loved my stay everything was clean and the staff was knowledgable.

Hotel room and pool are very small.

Posted 27-Jul-2016
If traveling with children, I would find another hotel. The pool is very small, the room is very small, no drawers to put you clothes in, no table or chairs, nothing but the bed(s) and a TV. If you order room service you literally have to put the food on your bed and eat from the bed, not ideal. You have to ask the front desk for ice, there is no ice machine. The Clevelander is "the party spot" on South Beach, again if you have children you may want to find another hotel since the Clevelander is a sister property of The Essex. They are back to back. You walk by the Clevelander to get to the beach. I can't say enough about the lack of parking. They do offer valet service for $40 a day. The key is being able to find 1 of the 2 drop off spots available so the valet can take your car and park it. If you are visiting South Beach to simply party, walk everywhere and never be in your room then The Essex would be perfect.

Art Deco elegance close to the beach

Posted 19-Jul-2016
My wife and I celebrated my 64th birthday at the hotel. Everything was delightful from the complimentary happy hour and welcoming lemonade to the smartly decorated rooms and genuinely friendly staff. This was a cool oasis just close enough to the beach but far enough from the noisy throngs (and thongs) on Ocean Avenue.

Wir waren 18 Nächte in diesem wunderschönen strandnahen Hotel. Es sind einfach alle total freundlich:) das Restaurant und die Bar im Hause sind sehr zu empfehlen!

Old hotel overpriced

Posted 18-Jul-2016
They will charge you and up sell everything. Valet takes 30+minutes to get your car. They will charge you for unknown fees with no receipt or anything.

Close to beach, very friendly staff

Wifi was terrible in our room, but great at the neighbouring hotel, other than that everything was great. Quality of breakfast was low though, so plan to eat out!

hôtel bien situé et agréable

Posted 30-Jun-2016
Pros: le calme car vue sur cour intérieure, l'accueil du personnel, équipements corrects et petit-déjeuner varié et copieux.
Cons: l'insonorisation au niveau des chambres car on entendait nos voisins éternuer et se parler.
Location: quartier très vivant près de la plage, des bars, restaurants et immeubles art déco à voir.
hôtel à taille humaine et situé près de la plage. Le personnel est compétent et accueillant. La chambre donnait sur une cour intérieure et était donc calme. Il y avait tout le confort. Seul bémol, chambres mal insonorisées.
