Unfriendly staff Small rooms Not worth it for the price
The hotel was close to the beach and had a cool pool area.
We took their last reservation of the night at their nice restaurant and despite spending $150-200 on a bottle of wine and steaks, we were told to hurry up and order as soon as we got there because "the kitchen was closing". It wasn't very classy. Our statement at checkout also had some BS extra charges we had to dispute. More hassle than it was worth except for the nice location.
Beautiful art deco hotel. Awesome pool, pool deck and access to the beach. Great for lap swimming and hanging out. Staff was helpful, really friendly, courteous and prompt. Close to great restaurants and clubs. Dulce, across the street in the Gale has excellent Italian food.
Rooms and systems in serious need of updating. Although clean, rooms are fairly small and attention to detail was not great. Worst was the clanging pipes all night long. We had to turn on the fan to overcome the constant banging. We thought it was the elevator but other guests had the same problem. AC barely functioned on last night. The TV had so much static we could not use it and screen res was terrible.
The Raleigh captures the romantic appeal of a classic Miami beach-front hotel, with a welcoming lobby, luxurious pool and friendly staff.
However, the guest rooms are tiny and cramped, with claustrophobic bathrooms (and ants in the sink drain) and no fridge or coffee maker. Also, the cost for valet parking ($39/night + tax) was exorbitant, but at least they didn't tack on a separate resort fee to our bill.
Nice "Old Miami" feel to it, pool area was nice with all the tropical palms surrounding It . Good coffee shop and pastries
Out door bars should have some mounted fans for customers also not just the bartenders, felt outdoor lounges also could have been nicer with some color to them , white is boring, , a few small shelves in bathrooms would be nice to place your toiletries !! We stayed here and walked to the SLS a block south and sat at their bar everyday was a cool vibe, but I would stay here again !! We did order 2 glasses of wine in the Martini bar area asked for a glass of water also when we order but didn't get it, asked again but same bartender again forgot ??? Either has short term memory loss or just didn't want to do it??we even tipped addition to what is added
I have been staying at The Raleigh for years as it had always lived up to its self proclaimed title of the "grand dame" of south beach. Sadly if current management continues in the direction witnessed during my stay over the 4th, The Raleigh as we knew it is gone. Before this last nightare of a stay I would have described The Raleigh as romantic, beach/waterfront, boutique but now I would describe it as having poor service, poor management, poor cleanliness. The interesting part was that everyone working there knew it was awful, it seemed the upper level management/decision makers for the property were off site for the weekend or perhaps hiding as it was that bad.
The Raleigh gave a promoter license to utilize the grounds for a two day fourth of July party however did not alert any guests of it. Had we and every other guest we encountered during our stay had known we would have booked elsewhere. It was a nightmare, there was no service for hotel guests, the pool was crammed and dirty/disgusting. There was a DJ with brain rattling base music blasting from morning to night.
The shape of the swimming pool -- which was too cold (not heated) to swim in.
The rest of the stay was poor: room next to elevator, very thin walls (squeaking beds all around during the night), expensive and not great food.
1) The pool / courtyard area 2) It's proximity to shops and beach 3) Molton Brown toiletries
1) Water pressure in bathroom was not far from a trickle. 2) The facade of the front entry of the room looked old and cheap 3) Concierge staff were requested to bring down luggage and they didn't. 4) Concierge staff were asked if I could buy Molton Brown toiletries from hotel and they said they would follow up. They didn't. 5) Breakfast was not inlcuded in room rate or encouraged me to include it in room rate or in any other way. I therefore took my breakfast elsewhere. 6) Reception staff were more often than not busy and inaccesible 7) Gentelman who checked me out at reception was arrogant 8) Restaurant staff made me feel rushed when taking and delivering my order 9) Dreadlock lady was a bit blaze
The front desk was very accomodating. The outside bar area was absolutely beautiful,especially at night.
Our room was awful. Barely enough room to swing a cat. Very poor value for the very high price tag.
location and pool area
Excellent staff & service, superb pool/poolside area and the most comfortable beds ever.
The rooms were a little small 9although perhaps to be expected given it's an 1930's building) and the food & drinks were very expensive
The history, the luxury, the pool and beach proximity, the ease to drive to the Keys for a few days
We had 3 instances of overcharging, two concerning the bottle of wine differently priced on the menu than charged on our bill, then later, our hotel stay price for the 2nd 2 nights was higher than when booked. All 3 were altered quickly when pointed out by us. We were given free breakfast as compensation for their error re the wine.
Extremely helpful staff, very comfortable room, and pleasant poolside dining. Despite some renovation work in process, a very enjoyable stay.
Cool and weel-appointed room with wonderful comfy bed. Amazing pool and relaxing bar/restaurant terrace. Very friendly and helpful staff. One of the nicest hotels I've stayed in, in fact.
