The Best Evil beds in the world

Posted 17-Aug-2016
Pros: I love the service, the beds and the AC!
Cons: Breakfast. It was good but would've liked eggs and bacon.
Location: 1 block from the beach and the heart of South Beach. Perfect place to stay!
First let me start by saying I travel a lot. I'm usually in 4-6 countries a year for work and play, and these were the best beds I've ever been in. My bed was soon comfortable that i decided to spend an entire day in bed because getting out of the bed just felt wrong. The breakfast was ok, and the rest of the hotel was great. The staff was courteous and helpful, and the overall experience was terrific.

Simple but charming remains from a bygone era. Excellent location proximity to beach, shops restaurants, but still quiet at night. Comfortable sleep

Great location

Posted 3-Aug-2016
Pros: Location, staff
Location: One block over is Ocean Ave so you are close to the strip, beach is any easy walk and you don't feel out of place walking around in your bathing suit.
We stayed here during the week so I'm not sure about the vibe on the weekend but it was a very chill place. It was a close walk to everything we would need in South Beach. Everyone was super friendly and the location was great. It is an old hotel but that's part of the deal, the only problem with it being old was the lack of electric outlets in the room. I think we found one in the bedroom and that was used for the lamps. We didn't have any problems though!

Hidden Gem on Collins Ave

Posted 2-Aug-2016
Pros: I liked the hospitality of the staff. The food and drinks from the lounge, which offered happy hour and discounts, were excellent and very inviting.
Cons: Room service after 11pm would be a great addition to the offerings at this hotel, especially since the Clevelander is open really late.
Location: Great location, within walking distance to local shops, especially Starbucks, which was a must for me in the mornings.
The room was amazing. I stayed in a suite which was spacious, the bathroom room was huge and modern, which I enjoyed. The suite was situated adjacent to the hotel and was accessible through a courtyard, which I wasn't too crazy about initially, but it added a bit of privacy which was anI unexpected delight. I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel selection. The fact that guests have access to the Clevelander Hotel, the sister hotel of the Essex House, made the experience even better. I enjoyed their lively happy hour and dancing right next door and returning to the comforts of my nice quiet suite at the Essex House when it was all over. The front patio was also a comfortable spot to observe the elements of Collins Ave and catch a nice breeze to relax. Lastly, the hotel in a few steps away from the beach, but the hotel pool was small, but quite cozy when you wanted to stay on property, but tan or get in the water. I would definitely stay here again.

Great Location!!!

Posted 1-Aug-2016
Great location close to everything in South Beach! Very friendly staff. Neat historical hotel with pretty lobby and outside seating area. Walls are a little thin, do bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
