Has a pool n onsite laundry Weird people walking lot at real odd hours making noise out In parking lots people have more than one dog In room have to listen to them bark all the night
Worked for our weekend in south Fl. Small room
It is in a decent location. Not far from the beach. 2 grocery stores nearby and a few decent restaurants. Not too far from Ft. Lauderdale. Small rooms, bathroom was dimly lit. Had a blanket with cigarette burn hole in it. TV was busted. They moved me to a different room and I had a better experience. I would go back if I had to. Not a terrible experience, but not one to jump for joy about.
Clean room, comfortable bed Ran out of pillows, when first arrived room smelled heavily of bleach, missing light bulbs
The staff was very helpful when our rental car was hit while parked (not at the hotel) and did all they could assist us in calling the sheriffs office, mall where it was hit, and the rental company
fast check in - close to airport and airport pickup and drop off wasn't fancy - but was adequate for price
I like everything about it .. Wouldn't change a thing
We enjoyed the Wi Fi that the hotel offered, as well as the Continental Breakfast also that we were able to leave our bags in a locked location before we could check-in & the free shuttle to the airport. Although the gentleman at the front desk in the morning was very friendly and accomodating, the gentleman in the evening seemed very frazzled and seemed to be tied up with the phone the whole time we were checking - in.
Stayed for one night prior to a cruise from Ft. Lauderdale. The hotel was fine. It was clean, quiet, and pleasant and they had a nice continental breakfast. There is a pool. There are a couple of restaurants at a strip mall across the street. The shuttle from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to the cruise port was complimentary and convenient. There seemed to be a lot of cruise passengers staying here. Perfectly adequate for our purposes.
Shuttle was great - so nice not to have to worry about transportation to ship and airport. Staff were terrific - helped with printing boarding pass - being computer illliteret - I so much appreciated the help - breakfast is just an additonal plus. Nice to have the option to check in early for a small fee. Took bus to Adventura mall - great mall - all in all - we enjoyed our stay at the Sleep Inn Suites. Just a suggeston to promote Canadian Visitors to your hotel durin gthe winter motnhs and thge hockey season - how about a shuttle to the arena to see an NHL Game - I would have loved to stay another day and go to a game. (Just a thought) My suggestion would be to clean the pool and hot tub more often - was not terribly clean when we visited.
Pick up at airport and drive to port for cruise - no charge.
The free shuttle from the airport and cruize Faciltiy, large rooms and free breakfast.
It was comfortable, clean and a great value for the price. Would recommend. The breakfast area was pretty small for the amount of people trying to use it.
Clean and friendly . Easy access from highways and good breakfast.Large rooms with many appliances.
Location to the beach and also transit to get anywhere quickly. Shuttle service was my selling point.
Stayed in the Chateau tower which was better than Versailles. It's a bit north of South Beach but not too bad.
Amazing hotel. A little bit of a struggle to get a pool chair in the morning, but the room and views were spectacular A little far from all the excitement in south beach
The hotel is clean and the rooms are comfortable The staff is unfriendly and rude. They constantly remind you of what you "can" or "cannot" do as if you are in an airport. They have an extremely poor customer service as a whole. I travel to Miami quite often and there are plenty of other 5-star hotels on Miami Beach that in my opinion have better customer service and are not filled with juvenile delinquent guests.
Beautiful hotel great night life Overpriced
Pool and spa nicely designed Got there and found there were nerds and lipstick on the carpet as well as a big wet mark. I called front desk to see if the room had been cleaned and they said they didn't known but they could connect me to house keeping to see if I could get someone to come clean it. I said "can't you do that" she just said would u like me to give you house keeping number or not. Then on Kayak it soecifically says on some options "no breakfast w this deal" so I picked the higher price option bc it did not say that. I get to hotel and they tell me Breakfast is not included. Then I try to go to spa and they charge me more money even after I showed them My Kayak reservstion says spa included. Later that night I come back to the room to find it was never cleaned. I wouldn't even have complained about any of this had I not paid over $400 for the one night I stayed here.
Location, room ,restorants,everything Fees for beech furniture rent
We were placed in the tower which mostly was dedicated to business men, besides that our floor was full of young people who came to that place just to have fun for a few days. They were disrespectfully loud all day long. The rooms are tiny, I was hoping to have a jacuzzi tab but it was only a shower cab. The walk to the swimming pool was through two towers and people who always were dresses for different conferences. Prices for food are really expensive and it didn't worth spending on it. I would not recommend this hotel for family oriented people, it is mostly for party people and businessmen. See above
The pool is closed very early
Food prices in the restaurants inside were too expensive.
The absolute best hotel. Everything was perfect
The property is amazing! The pools are great - got a little crowded on the long weekend - but very enjoyable. We had an oceanfront room and the views were breathtaking. The beach access was really good and you got free beach chairs. Its a little away from south beach and all the shops and restaurants - but we knew that going in. Room service was not up to par - they routinely forgot to replenish our coffee/ sugar. The food was just OK - and the price for food and drinks was exorbitant. Valet only parking and it was $45 per day!!
I had a lot of charges on my card and I don't know why. I didn't remove anything from mini bar. I'm still waiting on a follow up call from billing.
We loved the blackout shades on the windows which allowed us to sleep in from the late night flight.
The walk around the jogging track was immense and coupled with the water feature of the Blue Lagoon made our holiday all the better. The grounds of the hotel I found very private. No complaints
Very quite and safe location. Clean room, friendly staff and very convenient restaurant/bar. Very nice not to have to drive to eat dinner $17.00 parking fee No washcloths Very small and half empty shampoo & conditioner bottles
My stay Not long enough stay
Spacious room, good pool and public areas, a place to slow down and relax. Close to highway and downtown (must have car). Hotel will rip you. They leave some water bottles on the room and charge almost 4$ for each, problem is that I found the Price on a tag with some green sayings on the las day and a lot of bottles later. Charge 54$ for a 1 minute int. Call? Cmon! The price for the room itself is good but I felt stolen.
The hotel was convenient for the airport and the room and beds were very comfortable. The late evening snack we had was very nice but expensive for what it was. The breakfast was also expensive.
Roomy. Clean The hotel nickel and dimes you for everything. No complimentary breakfast. No complimentary fridge. View was of a roof. Horrible view
Clean comfortable beds, Great views, nice bathroom Was missing small items from room after first night room attendants cleaned room. Last morning before checkout staff barged into room. The hotel and facilities were great but houskeeping staff could be better.
While the hotel is older it was built right and they have done a fantastic job maintaining it. The rooms were so clean and comfortable, it was an absolute pleasure. As it is close to a large international airport, you may at times find yourself bumping into people that aren't used to our culture, like politely standing in line, or not blocking the main entrance with your entire group and all their luggage.
Location, Location, Location! Really close to all the malls!
The front dresk service was great! The phone lines sounds awful !
The beds were comfortable and the hotel was clean. However, certain things like our acid reflux meds were missing or either thrown away, which was very odd. Also, when we were getting ready to leave around 8 AM the maid services were already barging in to clean the room, which kind of caught us off guard.
The staff is very helpful and professional... Excellent service... The dining room could be a little bit more cleaner...
The view was wonderful. The bed was extremely comfortable. The employees were helpful and the shuttle service was really useful. The shower was not very big and there was no hook or rod to hang up my used towel.
I liked the price I didn't like the fact that I was charged to park my vehicle. The bathroom had hair in it that was not mine and when I called the first desk she said she would have someone come clean it and no one came.
The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was not what I booked but it was just an overnight stay so I didn't make a fuss. The bathtub paint was chipped and it was so cold. The air never got warm so I just took it off and layered up. Breakfast was really expensive.
price and location Bathroom and shower was in bad shape. tile and grout was black and the shower on /off lever was broken and very hard to use . But worse was the black mold in the white tiles and grout. Just a little spraying of clorix would have done the job
Close to the airport with readily available shuttle service. Nice views of adjacent gold course.
Nothing Front desk rude and not interested in help
Bar, bedroom Parking
Clean rooms and modern feel Not much parking. Valet is not free and over priced. Right across the street from airport so expect some noise. Not much but some.
Could not get room service. No free internet No wake up call
The check in line was super long when we arrived so we went out to dinner. When we got back it was peaceful. Staff was nice. Decor was modern. Beds were soft. Room was quiet. Very nice stay. Needs free coffee in the lobby in the morning.
Rooms were comfortable, clean, and we had a nice view of the golf course. The airport shuttle and location made this a perfect start to our vacation.
Great location, right on the beach, nice big bright rooms, comfortable need and sofa in the room, 2 huge TV in room, heated pool for chilly days, non heated pool for hot days. Really family friendly, delicious breakfast, Good kids menu. The pillows are way too big and stiff.
My stay at GBH was wonderful. The rooms were spacious and clean, the staff was friendly and the hotels backyard was Miami Beach.. What more could you ask for? I didn't like the $20/day resort fee that wasn't included in the overall price and the fact that they charge $100 per night on your credit card at time of check in- in the case there are damages to the room.. Although you do get your money back upon check out if all is fine.
Grand beach hotel is a very beautiful hotel located on Collins ave with direct access to the beach. They have two pool and two hot tubs on the ground floor, but we really enjoyed the pool and hot tubs on the 7th floor rooftop. The hotel is great for families or groups as it affords the ability to join adjacent rooms. The continental breakfast is pretty expensive at $25 and doesn't hold much value at $25.
Hotel cleanliness, beautiful decor, waterfront Staff attitudes toward customers, specifically in Valet. They made crude comments and gestures behind the backs of other guests. Also staff attitudes toward business, like they didn't want to be there and didn't mind showing it.
3 pools, 1 adult, 1 all heated, 1 all cool games for kids to play near pool pool was super shaded with palmtrees rooms were clean rooms with balcony have 2 full bathrooms w/ showers easy access to beach from pool constant towel service as needed 2 beach chairs w/ umbrella at beach comes with room rate 24 hr food room service gelato in the lobby entire staff (valet, bell, front desk, pool deck) were super friendly & attentive room rate a little pricey food by pool was OK, could be better valet took a little long for car to arrive, but overall OK
Excellent customer service and amazing rooms!
The Help wa exotic The Help was exotic. The language barrier was hard to overcome. We spent 2 hours by the front desk upon arrival. They lost our reservation. We had a terrible experience. But the dis comp us on alcoholic drink
GRAND BEACH HOTEL IS A GREAT HOTEL WITH A GREAT STAFF..... THE ROOMS ARE GREAT WITH 2 FULL BATHS AND THE VIEWS ARE TO DIE FOR...... THEY DON'T TELL YOU ALL THE HIDDEN FEES UNTIL ARRIVAL
Location, rooms, ocean front. Noise in room when a/c came on. Didn't get fixed before we left. 35 dollar a day valet parking.
The Grand Beach had it all, great service, great food, great beach, great location. Beautiful huge room with everything I needed in great condition and so clean, I can still feel the white carpet on my bare feet. It rained a little, other than that , perfect, I would go there again, or everytime I went to Miami beach.
The rooms were clean, it's a 4:00 check in but I got to the hotel at 11:00am and they had one ready and had no problem getting us in the room. I had the partial ocean view which was nice. Beds were comfortable. The pool was nice the access to the beach was convenient. I didn't like the fact that as much as you pay to stay that nothing was complementary. The food and drinks were overly expensive but you're in Miami everything will be expensive. No microwave in the hotel at all. I didn't care for the $100/per night deposit but they refund it fairly quickly after your stay if nothing is wrong with your room. The resort fees are deducted the last day of your stay. The women's lobby bathroom always smelled. The elevators were slow. One time getting on I was almost stuck in one had it not been for someone prying the doors open.
The location of the property was awesome. Food options were limited and expensive.
Nice modern clean facility. Great rooms. Hour long wait in the business center just to collect a package.
good location near cruise ship terminal. full beds are quite small. Queens would be better. Expensive parking. Just "OK" restaurant.
My room was ready when I arrived.
Location to cruise terminal. $ 43.00 a night to park your car. Ridiculously expensive.
Staff Room Location
Restautant, room comfort, service
The friendly staff. Amber who checked me in gave me a higher floor so that I could enjoy the view of the city. The view was amazing.
Best hotel I have ever stayed at. It was amazing the restaurant Toro Toro was awesome. Everyone was so nice and on the 18th floor we had such a great view of the city!
Great Location overlooking the intercoastal and so convenient to American Airlines Arena. The Hotel is beautiful and the staff is friendly and very helpful. Breakfast buffet was excellent. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Miami. There was nothing that we didn't like!
Proximity to bayfront park and American Airlines Arena while costing significantly less than competitors. If you don't mind walking 6 minutes and want to save $100, this may be for you. The feel of the hotel is a bit old. Old school card scanners on doors, carpet a bit dated, but still clean. Under an airport route, but what hotel downtown isn't? Lower floors will hear traffic.
Not much Pool next to very busy highway
Location Bathroom was not maintained. Tub was plugged and shower needs to be replaced.
I was in town for a conference, and the staff were wonderfully helpful, the room was quite nice, and the hotel amenities were great. A nice alternative and well worth the cost
Suit was really nice and not expensive
Ambiance was good. Staff was courteous. Breakfast was excellent. No clear direction in the parking garage. No coffee maker in the room, only 2 pack of ground coffee, how do I make coffee without hot water and coffee maker? We booked a king size bed and there was only ONE pillow on the bed. How can I be a king with only one pillow?!
Nice hotel Mold in bathroom and do not validate parking
Nothing. Smells bad and the rooms are not clean as expected Smelly lobby, rude front desk dirty rooms
Loved the location of hotel. Was able to walk to diffent places without having to drive. Staff was very friendly and helpul. Greeted you with a smile at all times. Room was clean and really nice view. This was my first time visiting Miami and I didn't like the fact that the hotel doesn't offer free parking like in other places I've stayed at. Seems this is everywhere in Miami. The phone in the room didn't work and was not even connected. I tried to connect it to the wall outlet, but there was no dial tone.
it was convenient to the Whole Foods and the bed was comfortable. decor was dated and drab air conditioner was not reliable noisy noisy noisy at the pool you can smell grease and smog
Loved the room service, cleanliness, everything was delivered on time. Perfect location. Absolutely amazing. The paid parking is a bit of a pain in the neck
Great location. Great last minute deal thru Kayak. I will definitely stay again. My room was RIGHT BY THE ELEVATOR... bad move. You hear everythjbg coming in and out. Also, the chef... Well, let's just say the meal I had wSnt great. Actually, it wasn't good either.
Room and view was wonderful! Staff was helpful, and the pool was relaxing. Loved the love music at the pool. Breakfast at the hotel resturant cost us a pretty penny.
Great view, location - nice rooms. Bed was way too comfortable!
The personal are professional and very polite.
Very comfortable bed. Rooms are nice. Location to beach is great. Parking cost is $30/night. You can hear every sound through the door.
Friendly staff,clean,close to beach. Nothing negative
This was a great place to stay. It was very nice and looked more modern than most of the hotels on the strip. Staff very friendly and helpful. Most rooms had a beautiful view of the ocean! The higher your room the better. Beds were very comfy. Room amenities: Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, ice bucket, 4 glasses, safe, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner/bath gel dispenser in shower, iron/board, mirrors on the closet doors, 2 bottles of water daily They also offered 2 welcome drinks from the bar upon arrival, free beach towels and 2 free beach chairs daily. Location: The location of this hotel was good for us. It is located at the corner of A1A and Sunrise Blvd. The beach was right across the street and this section of the beach wasn't as crowded. We did not need to rent a car. There was plenty of things within a block surrounding the hotel. There was a Thai sushi place, 24hr pizza place, Mediterranean/Vegan spot, deli/sandwich shop, ice cream, popcorn, Subway, 7 Eleven. There were also several souvenir shops, a pub and a couple of other small restaurants. We rented a scooter from Fun Rentals right behind the hotel so we could explore a little further. Great transportation without paying for valet parking. We also used the beach shuttle ($3/person). Other transportation options include Trolley ($1/ride), City bus (bus stop right out front), cab, Uber, bike rentals. The nightlife is about a mile south of the hotel (30 min walk) on A1A. The Galleria mall was about 1/2 mile west on Sunrise blvd...not far at all. Overall this was a great place and we would stay here again. The pool was sort of small though. I would have liked a microwave as well though. Restaurant in hotel was kind of expensive so we never ate there.
The staff is friendly and accumulating. Easy access to beach front. Updated lobby and rooms. Near liquor store. Don't worth the $200+ a night rate I paid. It looks and feels like an old Holiday Inn that was renovated. The view from the rooms of the beach is only a half view as the building is blocking the rest. The carpet was stained. The shower had mold on the grout and caulked in areas. The A/C only kicked on when it wanted to. The pool is the size of an above-ground pool. I paid the rate because the reviews and pictures looked appeasing but it turned out to be a front. Also, it is not an adult only hotel; many, many families present and being very loud and obnoxious. 2-star rating. Only stay here if you find a rate for under $100 a night. Very, very disappointed.
NOTHING. EVERYTHING. I would not stay here, they are not accomodating,the staff is rude and inconsiderate. There sheets were terrible, and the room was dirty.
Vera¡y good location The service specially for the breakfast was very poor
Rooms are stylish, well concepted and executed. Baths and beds and interior design is well done. Rooms have great views and are quiet. This hotel and the W are the two best hotels in Fort Lauderdale and this is a great value. Close to restaurants and the beach. Slight access issues, but once you've stayed there you figure it out and its fine, the location offsets any access challenges.
The woman at the front counter was extremely helpful and friendly. She immediately saw our daughter who is two and offered to have us a crib sent up immediately. Hotel restaurant server was also excellent. Gave us great service and the food was great. Seemed a little too "uppity" for our family. It always seemed as if someone was looking for a tip. My husband went down to get a luggage cart to take our bags downstairs and the guy wouldn't let him have the cart. Said it was a "liability". I've been to a lot of hotels and always used my own luggage cart. It's not a liability for heavens sake. It just means someone won't get a tip. Also the bed was not very comfortable but that's just a personal opinion. It could be very comfortable to someone else.
I can not tell you just how horrible our stay was. we were still awake at 9am from the noise in the hall ,the next room was party city. How many whores can fit in a hotel room? even the dirt in the hallways and elevators surprised us. this isn't a hotel on the weekends it is like a sorority house with absolutely no rules and no regard for anyone elses sensibilities. horrible horrible stay.
Nice hotel with a good entertainment Service when we left the room our plane late, they din't help us (only for money) with a shower before we going. We must too the toilet in the casino for other close.
location to sun life stadium staff was rude and room check-in is disfunctional. room should have been ready much sooner than it was.
The hotel is a self-contained city...lots of shops and restaurants...the downside was its a casino on Indian property so smoking is allowed----YUCK!
The casino wasgreat (even tho' we lost). Thefood was usually of good value. Our room was niceand the bed was great but itwas almost a mile walk from the elevator and wewerelocked out onASaturday night foralmost an hour!
I love the enviroment, staff, most resturant & shopping The only thing I dislike on every trip is room service, not the service itself but the food is of poor quaility. I made an inquiry a few trips back and found out it was prepared by The Blue Plate, where I dine after 1am as it was the only one open.....it's horrible!!!
Too expensive to its level.
we only stayed for 2 nights and we really liked the swimming area and the casino the room was just what we wanted we will visit again the next time we are in florida 5 star all the way
The beds and linens were wonderful in our room. Room service for breakfast was excellent. The pool area is really lovely, both day and night. Rod Stewart's show was excellent. We found the hotel staff, with the exception of security people, were rather "grumpy".and this includes bartenders.
Probably one of the better rooms I've stayed in. Spacious and clean. Room service was quick. The pool is wonderful. The restaurant options are great. If you're looking to get something to eat and enjoy some good music I recommend Area 31.
The views were pretty nice. The room was comfortable, except for the constant racket of music, construction and traffic, not to mention the binging from the elevator Super noisy. Disorganized. Staff not very helpful Somewhat snobby clientele.
No good signal tv, I can not go to pool for private pool party.
the pool the room the lobby the location the restaurant the gym poor parking service if you dont call for your car in advance you can wait up to 40' for your car
The staff were very accommodating, but certain floors of this hotel are LOUD. Try to stay away from the waterview side of the building directly above or below the 16th floor where the restaurant is housed.
Room quality, location, pool, gym, breakfast area, Lobby, In-Room dining experience was terrific. Bed linens were not soft, very rough and low quality. Pillows much to big and thick, no choices for pillows. Took one hour and three calls to get extra towels.
rooms restrant on site zuma is amazing in the heart of downtown 39 dollars a night valet and no adult pool also pull was a bit small for the size of the hotel. during spa the zen room you could hear the music blasting through the wall
I did enjoy that the hotel offered a gorgeous view and was perfectly located in the heart of biscayne /downtown Miami area. I also enjoyed most of the amenities I did not like the fact that the hotel did not appropriately handle the New Years clientele and would have 30 minutes to an hour for lag time on ordering room service, getting front desk assistance, and general services. I also thought it was very unprofessional of the hotel to give my room away on the night of New Years eve after I paid over 2 thousand dollars to reserve the room almost two weeks in advance. Although hotel credit was given, I still feel the hotel could have done more since we had a filthy hotel room. I really felt this hotel had the potential however they failed to show me that and honestly with the prices I paid I really deserved more
Excellent customer service in all areas of the hotel...Very clean and friendly atmosphere
The wating time for the valet to bring your car
Outstanding service Exceptional experience We have stayed at Epic many times, but this was the first time bringing the kids. The kids had a wonderful time. As a family we cannot wait to come back!! each stay at Epic has been an exceptional experience, which is why it's our hotel of choice when visiting Miami.
Fun lively noisy location in downtown Miami We were not given the room we ordered but they did try to make up for the error.
Location is perfect for experiencing all that South Beach has to offer; staff was fantastic and very accommodating; food was very good; The way of the travel world now appears to be to charge little bits (or more) for every little thing, this was no exception.
The first night was a disaster. At about 5:45 p.m. I called down to report a loud fan/ motor annoying noise. They said they would send someone up. We left about 20 minutes later for a dinner reservation.When we came back later that evening it was late nothing had changed. we were to tied to do anything so we tried to go to bed. Sleep did not come for either of us easily and we were up a good part of the night. The next day I complained and the girl offered us a $50.00 credit and would move us down from the top floor in the same proximity. the noise was probably from the motors on the roof. Looking out after agreeing I saw all the fans from the building next door so I called back and said it was not acceptable. I was turned over to the Rooms manager (Emily) who was excellent we were moved closer to the front of the building, no noise good sleep a Ritz Carlton experience. First day terrible second day great. Not sure how to evaluate Sid Barish
Kelly at check in, superb. Ziggy, beach manager above and beyond. The beautiful lady who delivered room service at 1 AM and serenaded my daughter with a lovely Happy Birthday. All the staff were friendly, and excellent! The lobby decor. Also, no coffee shop.
I was charged twice for my staying and although I've contacted the site several times and it's been three weeks I still couldn't get my money back
Location, pool area, room & bed comfort. It is located right out of the loud crowd on Ocean Drive, so it is a lot more chilled and relaxed. Overall, much better than all other hotels on South Beach. I can't quite say it was a true 5 star experience in terms of appearance and for the premium price. But again, a lot better than the other hotels around.
Proximity to beach and Lincoln Mall. Our room was right off the pool which was super convenient. Front desk staff couldn't have been nicer especially when I disputed some charges at checkout out. The facilities need maintenance. Particularly the pool area. Broken tiles and the bottom of the pool was chopping off in at least one large area. The bathroom also could use some maintenance. The vanity top had a chopper out of it and theme leftist was rusting in areas.
Every staff member said hello to me. Staff was very friendly The Spa experience was ok, Massage for a deep tissue was weak. The Sauna was not on, I turned it on but should be preheated for guests or what good is it. For $440 for 2 - 50 minutes massages I expect more.
I like the location and the beach area. The room had big stains on the carpet & it was not well maintained or cleaned.
Staff, location Not up to Ritz standards! More like a motel
Great pool, great service, classy crowd
Cleanliness and comfort. Pool area wasn't welcoming. Snobby attitudes.
This hotel has the most friendly staff who always welcome you back. Best pool, pool bar and DJ experience. The sushi restaurant in the lobby is outstanding. My all white decorated room faced the ocean and had spectacular view of beach. Highly recommend this property. The gym could be upgrade and/ or located in a different part of hotel (it feels like being in the dungeon of the hotel). The cable sometimes goes in and out.
Staff were excellent. Great customer service. Very friendly. Food prices were a bit high.
The Delano was a beautiful hotel with an awesome pool and atmosphere. The staff was friendly and overall really cool. Great for a one time indulgence. The rooms were a bit small and our floor was sandy upon arrival. The all white decor was ok, but really let you know if something wasn't clean, and unfortunately many things on our bed had stains. As for the prices, they were absurd. There wasn't a single thing that was complimentary here. 30 dollars for wifi for two days, overpriced cocktails, food and drink and the biggest offense of all was the fact that you had to pay more than starbucks prices for coffee in the morning. Seriously not ok for the price you pay for just staying there. Lastly, the sushi bar was just awful, 3 pieces in and we closed our check.
They tried to solve the small problems as they appeared The location and the view are amazing, the decoration and the swimmingpool areas are very unique. A hotel like this should have free wifi: it is ridiculous to have a fee of $15 /day not for the money but for the principle. The rooms are not big; I was in an upper floor but the lower floors are very noisy as there are parties in the hotel almost every night
Just the location and the nightlife "knowledge" of the concierge The Rooms were too old-fashioned. The Bathroom was smaller then 4m2. The elevators were bad smelling. And to have access to the fitness you had to pass through the old linen storage.
Food superb on the two occasions we had lunch. The restaurant staff very friendly and efficient. Weird smell in lifts. This was probably the cleaning agent but it smells awful.
The location is terrific, the outside pool and pool dj is awesome. Plus the lobby is aesthetically pleasing. The rooms are terribly small and all white. Not in a cool way, but in a "one flew over the coo-coo's nest way". VERY LAME for 2014. They need to renovate this property asap. Also, nothing inside the room is clean. The little throw rug in the room had debris and old un-vacuumed crumbs all over. Very nasty.
It was centrally located location for a international Business meeting. The expoense was not justified by the quality of the hotel
The location, the pool and some of the staff are great. The rooms are also fairly comfortable even though they are well outdated. This place is the most absurdly expensive place even by south beach standards. It is really pathetic what they charge for food and drinks. If it wasn't for the scenic pool no one would stay here. During our stay the beach club had a pimp soliciting business very loudly on multiple days whom the hotel refused to kick out despite multiple parties complaint. The Delano is a magnet for sketchy characters. The place is surviving off of its reputation and pool alone. Go here if you don't mind being gouged and enjoy the occasional strung out pimp at the beach, but if you're looking for a modern luxury hotel, this isn't it.
I was brought up that if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. I will not ever stay here again.
View and staff That I couldn't stay longer
The convenience to the beach. Staff friendlyness and helpfulness. The price was very reasonable, the hotel structure and arts are beautiful. The hotel needs a renovation ASAP, the pool was extremely too small for the amount of people staying at the resort, they need to build more pools and perhaps a few hot tubs. The water front restaurant and bars needs renovation, cleanliness and more variety on drinks and food.
Nothing!!! Ashley at check in was ridiculously horrible!!! Manger came out he was horrible & no help!!! I was given t wrong info abt check not my fault but I'm t one they looking at crazy!!! Room was filthy hair every were left over definitely not mines!!!!/ Mildew in t bathroom.... Chipped paint, top sheet stinked, rooms old!!! I can complain all day abt that place especially t rude staff!!! Please don't waste your money on this hotel!!!! I read how rude t staff was but I always give people a chance boy was I wrong on this one!!!!!! Don't waste ur money!!
My room wasn't ready they put me in a smaller room with a single king size bed, I was traveling with my wife and two kids. the next next day I had to check out spend the entire day outside until 4pm then they didn't bring me my bags until six pm. When I asked to speak and complain to the manager. He offered an insignificant resolution that still left us completely unsatisfied.
View, No working shower, had to pay $45.00 to park my veichle the hotel! I mean are you kidding me, that's like going out to eat, and the paying the restraint to use their bathroom! Then I get up at 6am to get ready for my 8 am meeting, and the shower does not work!!! Unreal, sink was stopped up, bell hop watched me struggle down the stairs with my luggage. Terrible staff and service, if I wanted no service I would have stayed in a day's inn!!
The lobby of the hotel Rude staff, charging for the Minni Bar every after paying for hotel. Old tv that didnt work.
The staff was very friendly for the most part and the location was in close proximity to Eden Rock where I attended a conference but couldn't stomach the extra 150 per night. The decor is so dated. The carpet, drapes, doors, fixtures, etc were in desperate need of updating. its relatively clean but so warn out. The room had an odd L shaped layout with no real purpose for extra space. An old tube TV, like 27 inches in an delapidated armoire that was literally 25 feet from the foot of my bed. needed binoculars.
I would to stay in next building that's much batter than this resort Everything
Liked cleanliness and large rooms
I appreciated the staff upfront. The breakfast was great! The view was awesome. Due to me booking the room via a 3rd party website, I had to wait for a extended period of time to get my room. The front desk were doing everything they could to help me. In the room it was old. The TV didn't work and there were no towels in the room. So I had to go down stairs twice. The towels were old. After that it was ok. I would stay again. The old room is no fault of the staff.
that they "upgraded" me to a room for my inconvenience. The upgraded room was a so shitty and out dated the bathroom with black and white tiles looked like a black and white checker board ,, the room looked haunted ,,, the toilet was running all night long ,,, you couldn't flush the toilet ,, and it was just not worth the money!!!!
Me & my boyfriend loved the main lobby decor it was great. The room was small and old tvs.
Love the pool and the view of the beach! Everything was clean! Couldn't take food outside to the pool or a cooler. Security guards were annoying on that.
Pool area is fantastic, beachfront hotel and staff were accomodating and most of them freindly. very expensive to buy anything at the hotel. Room was not perfect but the beach view was memorable!! Worth the extra $$. There was no free wifi even with the pricy room! not acceptable these days.
Excellent pool bar service! Rivals sports bar service on both visits was BRUTAL! Stay at the other bars on property or go somewhere else. You will be glad you did.
The location and beach access. Hotel was beautiful and comfortable. Construction didn't take away from beauty of hotel. The resort fees. Just include in price up front.
THE beach, the room, the lobby I was charged for everything! Even charged for receiving a delivery package. At the end, it ended up being a very expensive hotel.
Pretty location and the facilities are nice. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff and operations were a hot mess. Ownership has changed and it was as if every employee there was on their last day of work. The checkin was a mess, the billing was wrong three times, the beach was nearly impossible to get help with chairs etc. the place is on a steady decline. Find somewhere else to stay for that kind of money unless they get their act together. We recommend the Palms in Miami beach! Same price but 1000% better on customer service and style.
They aré remodeling all the hotel, so all services and features are not available
Worst cell and internet reception
Excellent location, very nice pools and grounds, nice bathroom and comfortable beds, good TV selection, wonderful beach. Part of the hotel is under renovation and we could not go outside to our balcony. They were all locked and dirty from the reconstruction. We have stayed here about 5 yrs ago and everything was perfect. Everything is still very well kept ,but the hotel is starting to show signs of wear. So, the renovation is on time. Finish date is Fall 2016. I can't wait to see it. We will be back. Hotel very crowded and busy this holiday weekend.
Nice people and when things weren't right they made it right.
Location of the hotel is great, beautiful pool and patio, Great staff overall. The hotel is under heavy construction switching from Westin to Hilton So if you like the sound of pile drivers at 6h00am every morning.... Nothing was told or specified when we made our reservation that the hotel was a construction site!!! Not professional at all!
Intercoastal view with a big tree blocking from seing anything
Shower did not work in my room. I let the front desk know upon checkout and they did not offer any discount for my inconvenience. I had to ask them what they could do for me, and after some haggling with them, they gave me free parking for the night. Will not stay at this hotel ever again.
Location to the convention center The lobby was extremely chaotic and loud. There is nothing near the hotel that gives you options for dining out as far as I could tell.
Great hotel, great service. Our door balcony messed up on us and they moved us into a nicer room with a view to accommodate the inconvenience. Staff was nice and took great care of us. I would definitely go back again
- Only "glitch" was that, when checking in, the front desk said that my business debit card was declined....twice. However: • There was 60x more funds in the account than was needed • I called the Bank and they had no record of even any attempts and • I immediately used that same card at the hotel restaurant Unfortunately, I was forced to use my personal credit card
Great location, comfortable room Hallways and bathrooms were not clean to Hilton standards
Ants in room, being charged for a 23 oz draft but only getting a 16 oz glass.
Staff was friendly A/C did not work and carpets were dirty
Nice rooms, comfortable big beds, good price for location Not the most beautiful from the outside where we stayed. Came a day earlier than reservation and they were sold out. Parking $25 a night!
setting no breakfast before 7 am
The proximity to port Everglades is convenient. When I arrived, I was ignored for 20 minutes just standing at the counter while 2 staff members were having a conversation. The lobby and hallways were filthy and smelled terribly. when I asked about the smell a staff member replied "that's just how it smells". While checking in online, I requested a high floor room with a marina view. what they gave me was a first floor room and the "beautiful marina view" was obstructed by overgrown and unkept vegetation, so overgrown that I couldn't get any sunlight into the room. The staff was both incredibly unfriendly and unhelpful. I called down 3 times on my first day to request extra pillows, they told me all 3 times the pillows were on the way. Nothing was ever delivered to the room. There was a large gathering of water underneath the television when I got into the room, when I asked about this they told me they would "look into it" This was without a doubt the worst stay I've ever had at a Hilton property. I would've stayed at a motel 6 and paid a fraction of the price If I knew it was going to be this terrible.
It was a great hotel. The rooms were updated and comfortable. Will highly recommend. Nothing
Location Under construction; noisy
Pool area was beautiful, and open 24 hours! Love how the hotel was right next to the beach. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Price of food and drinks at the pool / beach was expensive, but it was what I expected when booking the hotel. Beach chairs were included in the resort fee, which was nice, but the fee didn't include a beach umbrella with the chairs...the umbrella was an extra $25 for the day (and we absolutely needed the umbrella because it was so hot outside).
I had a very pleasant stay, the staff was amazing. Nothing
The view from the room The Roach that was crawling around the room. Took forever for housekeeping to respond to compliant I had to call the Loews 1-800 number to get service after calling front desk
I loved the hotel was right by the beach The amenities including the spa, banana boat, beach chairs and excellent customer service
Had a great time very understanding staff and food prices were good at hotel lounge and restaurants
Hotel is good but pricey for its accommodation .building is little old . Beach is too far from hotel. Bathroom is small for the price paid for room
No music on pool area
Beautiful hotel, with a very very attentive staff. This hotel is walking distance from all the best parts of Miami Beach. The only bad thing about this hotel is that there are sooo many families (mostly from Europe) here, that the pool becomes way too crowded. As a couple in their 20s, we had to avoid the pool, and stay in the ocean.
Location, layout Drilling & hammers right by my room at 7a. I can understand 10a. For those from Ca this means it started at 4a Partying, LOUD rap music , yelling from balcony on my floor. I complained and NOTHING was done
The hotel was beautiful ocean front view balcony view.. Very close to ocean drive an Lincoln mall rd. We really didn't need a car.. O yeah right on the Beach.. They have beautiful outside water plaza where I got on my need an she said yesss ATTN we were notified before our stay way before our stay there would be construction but how would I know I'd get the room right next to all the banging and beating
the hotel amenities were fine, meals were good not exceptional. pool is nice as is beach access. i don't recommend for a vacation setting. hotel is very large, busy - not relaxing for a couple. Lacked the intimacy and romantic touches of other hotels catering to vacationers vs. business.
The room the view the staff the gym I love it The food too expensive
Nothing The staff was rude from the moment I walked in the door until the moment we left. They made jokes at my expense because it took me forever to get up the stairs since I'm pregnant. I booked two rooms but they didn't one of them available at 6pm (3 hours after check-in time). After sorting that mess out, we got stuck in the elevator which terrified my daughter. To make it worse the staff was giggling as we called for assistance. Upon entering one of the rooms, there was a large brown wet stain in the center of the room. When we called to complain the front desk said that we should be happy that they upgraded us to $600 a night room since our other room wasn't ready. We just asked them to clean it but they said most of housekeeping had left so it would be awhile. Even the staff at the coffee shop was rude in the morning when we asked how long it would take to order anything but black coffee because of the rest of the menu wasn't ready two hours after their opening time. Overall it was a terrible experience. The hotel is rundown but its the staff that made sure that I would never use this hotel again
Atmosphere Not alot of pillows per bed mattress not firm enough
Friendly helpful staff. Delicious food in restaurant and bar. Lovely pool area.
Clean, friendly staff No continental breakfast
Service was excellent and food was good. Good size room. Hotel is a little dated and needs some cosmetic refurbishing since structure is good. Bathroom and tub our outdated.
Beautiful hotel, very comfortable. Pillows were so soft they became flat while Laying on them
The staff was above and beyond wonderful!! Very nice, clean accommodations, and beautiful pool. Great location! Overall a lovely hotel. Only downside is the only place to purchase water or soft drink was the bar. They charged us $4.00 for a small aluminum can of Sprite.
We've stayed in other Sofitels before and this one didn't seem like one; the room definitely didn't live up to the brand. It didn't even live up to some of the lower-market Accor brands either. We were very disappointed. Towels were unwashed; they smelled like they were new from the manufacturer (not even washed for the first time). Carpet looked old. Room didn't seem upmarket at all and needs updating. Bathroom smelled like smoke in a non-smoking room. Front desk either initiated or failed to stop another hold on our credit card, beyond the normal hold for incidentals, the day we checked out no less (and we checked-out several hours before normal check-out). This was not a problem per se, but it was still an annoyance, especially considering that hotel seemed sub-par in other ways. In summary, the room was not horrible; it just wasn't a Sofitel. It was the equivalent of an average hotel, not even above average.
