Cioppino for dinner was overrated and overrpriced (for the quality of food served) - chocolate ice cream dessert was a big disappointment - staff was incredibly accommodating and courteous however, which compensated somewhat. breakfast buffet was great as well.
Great new Spa
I stayed at the Ritz Carlton, Key Biscayne with my best girlfriend and it was one of our favorite weekends together thanks to the Ritz! Everything from the valet service to the gorgeous pools and landscape were perfect. Truly a five star experience and I will definitely be returning in the future.
Nice quiet place with most of the things you might need provided in you rooms.
We had access to a private beach where we got to see atleast 45min of AMAZING Fireworks! Location was really nice and peaceful. Nobody disturbed us. Room was equipped with everything that you would think you need. Full kitchen nicely granited, they even included all different pots so you have the option to cook if you'll like. Overall great experience!
Stayed for 5 nights. Had food at every restaurant practically in he hotel, each one better than the other. The pool and the facilities were exceptional. They had a superman at the pool deck - think his name was Sam. Everything eas exceltional but he was very courteous and took extra care of our 9 year and ensured he loved the pool and the hotel.
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
Location, Location, Location! Really close to all the malls!
I enjoyed the stay although short. I did not stay long enough to determine.
It was close to the airport
somewhat in need of a renovation
25min bus ride to the hotel. Maintenance underway. Ltd choice of restaurant options.
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.
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.
It was a very comfortable place to stay - especially for the price that booking.com got us. Wonderful pool, a great little walk out onto the point for a view with relaxing music playing along the way. Lots of flora and fauna. The room was very nice and the bed very comfortable. Wish we'd been able to stay longer. We were there for one night before our cruise. The shuttle was great to the hotel and we got a taxi to the ship. The food was expensive, but the atmosphere was great.
Flies on the balcony, room 1240.
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!
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!
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.
Staff Room Location
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.
Nice modern clean facility. Great rooms. Hour long wait in the business center just to collect a package.
Restautant, room comfort, service
Location to cruise terminal. $ 43.00 a night to park your car. Ridiculously expensive.
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
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
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.
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
Suit was really nice and not expensive
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.
Nothing. Smells bad and the rooms are not clean as expected Smelly lobby, rude front desk dirty rooms
Not much Pool next to very busy highway
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?!
Location Bathroom was not maintained. Tub was plugged and shower needs to be replaced.
Nice hotel Mold in bathroom and do not validate parking
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
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 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.
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.
Bar, bedroom Parking
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.
Nothing Front desk rude and not interested in help
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.
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.
The staff is very helpful and professional... Excellent service... The dining room could be a little bit more cleaner...
We had a great meal. The atmosphere wasn't fancy but the food was good. A better beer selection
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
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.
No good signal tv, I can not go to pool for private pool party.
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.
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.
Location and staff Dirty, loudy, parking, people hosted.
Fantastic views, great location, comfortable beds. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Clean, nice room Our shower, nor our phones, did not work. Fortunately, we were only staying for a single night, which made the problem not a big deal. Also, pools were not heated. They have two BEAUTIFUL pools, but no one dared to be in them at all because they were absolutely freezing. A shame, really.
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.
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.
The staff went over and beyond to help make our stay comfortable-including an early check in and later check out to accommodate our flights. Well done! Rooms are nice size and had great views of the harbor and city lights. Would definitely come back again! Price for parking is steep.
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
Loved the location, restaurant and bars I wish they had coffee available for longer in the am, start earlier and end later, I missed it every day, either I was leaving to early or too late
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 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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
The location of the property was awesome. Food options were limited and expensive.
Location was good. Room was good. Rooms had dirty floor. Moldy bathroom ceiling. The iron made an iron stain in my clothes. I tried calling manager several times, no answer and no call back even after leaving a few messages.
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.
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 like the location and the beach area. The room had big stains on the carpet & it was not well maintained or cleaned.
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.
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
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
Staff, location Not up to Ritz standards! More like a motel
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.
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.
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.
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.
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, 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.
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.
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.
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
Staff were excellent. Great customer service. Very friendly. Food prices were a bit high.
Great pool, great service, classy crowd
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.
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.
Cleanliness and comfort. Pool area wasn't welcoming. Snobby attitudes.
It was centrally located location for a international Business meeting. The expoense was not justified by the quality of the hotel
We were impressed by the service, which is really outstanding. The beach island is really nice, it's a pitty there is no entrance in water. The view is great. The food was average. We had few dinners at the hotel and it was quite expensive, but so-so.
Great Staff, great view, very clean, i mean they clean the rooms twice a day, the staff is the best part of this hotel. Will stay there 100000 more times. The food and parking are not cheap, $40 per day just to park and the breakfast will cost u some $$. Needs a fridge in the room, it's miami.
The gym the view the food and drinks and the poolside service was spectacular. Late maid service.
The room was spacious with open bathroom; the balcony was great and the design nice and calm. the room service is not 24/7, the spa was closed for refurbishment
Even though looking from the outside the building looks kind of old, its inside view looks amazing, as the rooms and hallways.
Door staff and reception were very competent.
The staff was mostly helpful and always had a smile on their face. The lobby is among the most beautiful spaces I have ever seen in a hotel The rooms are clean and spacious Love the pool and jaqcuzzi. The man made beach was a nice touch You definitely pay for what you get. Expect to lay out a pretty penny Pool side service was a little spotty. At one point my wife and I had to wait 15 min for a towel and chairs despite the area being fairly empty (this was after speaking with two staff members) on another occasion we waited 20 min for someone to ask for our orders. There was a stain on the seating area in the room. Do not know what it was, however definitely expect more from a hotel of this caliber. Our view from the room was absolutely gorgeous, but the balcony was too small to fit chairs on. Note this appears to be only on a small section of rooms so be weary about this.
Very nice rooms and staff were great. View from rooms was also very nice.
Nice ambience and services. Excellent food.
Had a great time very understanding staff and food prices were good at hotel lounge and restaurants
I had a very pleasant stay, the staff was amazing. Nothing
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
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
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 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.
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).
Location Under construction; noisy
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
I loved the hotel was right by the beach The amenities including the spa, banana boat, beach chairs and excellent customer service
Great location, friendly and helpful staff, spacious and clean room, very nice facilities (indoors and outdoors), renovation of reception area a major improvement.
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.
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!!!!
The nice and relaxing environment
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.
View and staff That I couldn't stay longer
Liked cleanliness and large rooms
I would to stay in next building that's much batter than this resort Everything
The lobby of the hotel Rude staff, charging for the Minni Bar every after paying for hotel. Old tv that didnt work.
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!!
Me & my boyfriend loved the main lobby decor it was great. The room was small and old tvs.
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.
Location, beach access Poor hotel management, and poor service when allocating rooms and requesting guests to change rooms. They tried to downgrade us on the first night (the room was already paid for), and also offered us to sleep at an other hotel on the first night because our room was not available. Not accessible. Swimming pool area: Bathroom at the pool could be the bathroom of a 2 star hotel, and there are no indoor shower.
Cheap renovations with premium cost of accommodation. Parking cost is unreasonable. Our first room had not been cleaned after the previous guests. We were switched to a worse/smaller room. There was no acoustic privacy.
The hotel was in a great location with great views. The hotel will nickel and dime you for many different resort fees.
The hotel had direct beach access, and close to great outdoor shopping, and was a very good value for the money. The staff was friendly and attentive It seemed a little run down, but that was in character for a hotel that was as old as this.
all especially in the interior areas the pool area was dirty all time
It's right on the beach! Housekeeping staff took my iPhone 6 charger and took the bottles of alcohol that I bought and placed in the fridge. They also took my razors. Also noticed that while they are on the floors cleaning they keep all of the doors open even if they have other people's property in them which makes it really easy for someone else to go in to your room and take your stuff.
Hotel facilities were nice and it was right near the beach. Desk staff was a little condescending and not very friendly.
Didn't replace toiletries in the bathroom. Sheets were very rough.
My wife and I booked this hotel through Kayak's partner Getaroom in late October. The South Beach hotels were generally booked for New Years Eve, so we were happy to have a confirmed reservation. When we arrived at the hotel in New Years Eve, we were told by the front desk staff member that it reservation didn't exist. We looked up or confirmation and confirmed that we had prepaid via credit card. The hotel staff did they could not honor our reservation as they had no rooms available and they take no responsibility for mistakes made by third party booking agencies. They recommended we try elsewhere, so my wife called other hotels and I ran around trying to find a room. We called Getaroom three times and we put in endless hold each time as they struggled with the same problem. They finally found the glitch which turned out to be a misspelling of our last name as "Wppd" instead of "Wood." No apology from the hotel or Getaroom for two hours of frantic searching for another hotel. The hotel itself was nice but lacking in staffing and amenities. Cleanliness was OK. The pool and hot tub were overrun by kids and postadolecents. Location was amazing and we were able to walk to New Years Eve celebrations in South Beach.
I liked the hotel room layout because it was new and fresh.
Management handled room complication well Interesting modern design in room Great beachfront view and access Sea salt hand scrub in the bathroom was amazing Great location and ambiance Our room was not clean and was in complete shambles when they sent us up there at check-in. (Imagine walking into a room that looks like a rock band had just partied there. We were speechless.) The Bellhop did not give us a claim tag for our luggage we dropped off so we had to go identify it in the storage room and the bellhop had the nerve to ask for a tip after. There was a significant amount of blood on the walls between the doors of our room and the room next door (how can you miss that? who is looking over this place??)
I am a former Miami citizen and so I am picky and savvy. The Royal Palm is simply beautiful. The furniture, flooring, light fixtures, landscaping, are well designed and maintained. My room was clean, chic, had an amazing view. Bathroom was modern and lovely. Bed and sheets were comfortable. Your stay includes beach chairs and towels and service (cocktails and food) at your chair. I felt like a queen and was treated exceptionally well by the staff at the beach. I accidentally left my grandmother's ring in my room after checkout and the bellhop mobilized the housekeeping staff to look for and find it. I am so grateful! And whoever is running this place is doing all the important things right. I am a frequent traveler and will DEFINITELY be returning to the Royal Palm Resort. Oh, and you can't beat the location... I requested a late checkout, as I was unsure when I would be done with my meetings, and the gentleman at the front desk smirked and laughed at my request, which I did not appreciate. I do not fault the Royal Palm for this I still feel, despite this individual, I had an amazing experience and I will definitely return.
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
Beautiful hotel, very comfortable. Pillows were so soft they became flat while Laying on them
The room the view the staff the gym I love it The food too expensive
Atmosphere Not alot of pillows per bed mattress not firm enough
Friendly helpful staff. Delicious food in restaurant and bar. Lovely pool area.
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.
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.
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.
Clean, friendly staff No continental breakfast
Pool,location,bed itself was nice. Customer service was very bad for a 5 star hotel, mold in hallways of room, dirty stained carpets, every piece of furniture was damaged and just looked bad. If I wanted to stay in a hotel 6 I could have saved 200 dollars.
The W Miami is a beautiful hotel with amazing amenities. The rooms are luxurious with king size beds and large bathrooms. The fitness center has all the machines needed for a good workout, and a hot tub for after the workout. There is a large pool on the 15th overlooking the bay. I can't wait to return.
Amazing room, will definitely go here again. Staff was helpful in providing a room when Amoma failed to make a reservation for the hotel. If you are booking a hotel room from kayak through a third party, buyers stay away from Amoma!
Modern, cool, hip--like all W Hotels. Unlike some, there wasn't loud music playing at 3 am at the upstairs club. View is great. Gym is good, but a bit of a haul to get to as it is in a different building. Hotel messed up my bill quite badly and overcharged me by about $500. Only attempted to resolve after I had to intervene at check-out and again over the phone (and I still haven't seen the final refund come through via the bank). Additionally, while I was having dinner, the bartender at the restaurant came up while he was on Skype with his son and was like--"look at this beautiful woman eating by herself!" It felt a bit invasive.
Flight left me and I Sent them Proof from American Air Lines Then they promised me to re-booking amount, week left and did not recover the amount Whenever I tried to contact them A person who on the counter Transfer my calls to The Department Competent and No one answers no one call me back again ..... they are thieves
Loved this hotel. The concierge Jorge Rocha was so helpful, he gave us GREAT customer service. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Miami.
Location is great. Friendly staff. Reception lobby too small and crowded. Walls too thin.
Location and pool. Dirty pool, dirty spa, dirty room, expensive forn nothing. Even the holiday inn has a slepers and more clean the bathroom and bedroom. The closet was broken, and they gave us a room for special capabilities i dont know why.
The hotel and atmosphere were great. The best service were the bell hop and the valet service. Untrained staff, in particular the service in the restaurant was poor! Front desk gave conflicting information are not clear when asking about restaurants.
The location, the size and quality of the room and bathroom, the courtesy and skill of the staff. We liked it. We'll come back.
Room, Beach pool No coffee Long wait for breakfast in restaurant Lack of soundproof walls -noisy elevator
Staff was upbeat,sincerely friendly at every encounter,made for a pleasant stay! Short staffed at breakfast,and lunch,no interest in trying dinner,menus bland, quality subpar,kitchen glitches everyday,restaurant is weakest link in the hotel.
My stay at Thompson was very satisfactory. Everybody smiled and greeted us everywhere without making us uncomfortable or being too friendly. It was a quiet and relaxing stay that I very much anticipated, and I was glad that I chose Thompson for my first visit to Miami Beach! Some items in the fridge were gone, which I happened to find out while using it to store some food, but it was immediately taken care of as soon as we called the front desk to notify it. All in all, great experience!
The room was nice and clean. The people were friendly. The pools were nice. The beach was great. Room: We had requested an ocean view room with a patio. We were not given any options. The room# was 534. It was on the side of the building facing west so our main view was the hotel rooms on the other side. There was just a sliver of ocean view. If I were to go again I would insist on a room facing East and much higher up. Noise: Music from the restaurant was loud and started at 10:00 p.m. and continued until 4:30 in the morning. Extra Charges: There was a $150 charge extra per night which will be allegedly refunded. the parking was $40 per night. The taxes are a killer.So for two nights at a quoted rate of $260 per night, instead of being $520 turned out to be $729.
Clean, chic, comfortable rooms, lovely pool, friendly staff and convenient location
It was new The hotel hosted an event at the pool all day Saturday which meant it was closed to hotel guests. Relaxing and drinking poolside was not an option but one we had counted on and paid for. Management should have mentioned the event when our reservations were booked, alerted us at check-in or made an appropriate accommodation. We expected better.
Pool and beach are the best part of this hotel. Rooms facing Collins are loud. Traffic noise is awful.
