Essex House By Clevelander
Great location in the center of South Beach. Good breakfast. Nice lobby and outdoor space. Upon arrival we were told that we had to pay an additional 23.5$ for resort fee per room per night (wifi, pool towels, breakfast, etc). Once I could proof that I booked the room with FREE WIFI and FREE Breakfast I was able to go to the room although the room had changed as at first I was supposed to have room 207 and after the resort fee which was nowhere mentioned in my booking confirmation I got room 217 on the street side. Disapointed with the pool hours : 8 to 5pm. We arrived at 5 to 5 from shopping and were not allowed in the pool. Room is small with little comfort, no chair, no mini-bar, tiny bathroom. There was a smell in the room but no window could be opened as they were all locked for safety reasons according to the receptionist. If it is not possible to air a room it will start to smell after some time... The AC was extrmely noisy as it woke us up everytime it started to run.

I had a great stay and would definitely recommend
I had a great stay at this hotel and would strongly recommend it. It was very close to all of the activity on Ocean Drive but yet very quiet at night and I had no problem getting a good night's sleep. My only issue was with their wifi which would only work sporadically for me. I had to go to another establishment to access the wifi apps on my phone and because I was an international traveller I was very reliant on WiFi as I couldn't access the local American mobile networks. However, overall my stay was extremely pleasant.

Comfortable stay, 1 minute away from the beach.
Good service from the 3 dedicated front desk staff I have been in contact with (morning, afternoon and night shift) . Management should consider providing a shower for guests in the pool area. Too bad to still see so much waste generated by the disposable plastic plates and cutlery used for breakfast... not very sustainable.

Great deco hotel
Deco hotel in fantastic area. Friendly staff. We were in suite E11. Walls so thin we could hear the couple next door screaming at each other until 4.30am. Continued the next day. Other than the very thin walls stay was very good and very comfortable.
