We were expecting much more. This is an old 1950s hotel that hasn’t had much updating since. The room was same as a Motel 6 at best. The bed was hard & we never did find any hot water so couldn’t take a shower. Never again for us. This was a bad experience all around.

Here is want you want to tell all about this hotel and their dirty price practices! So I get my hotel on a third party website and they do tell you on the website that You will be charged a $100 deposit per night. Don’t worry though because their game is to make sure you get very little of that back in your pocket. They said self parking was $34.00 per night, it was $40.00 for 5 hours. So ad d that upon for two days or parking. Thet said valet was $52.00 per night it was actually $59.00 plus taxes. So you better book directly with them or loose money. Thet try to sweeten the deal with free beach towels, useless free alcohol drinks ( there was not alcohol in those frozen drink) bicycles to ride if you can get them. When you get your free beach towels from the hotel around the corner be prepared to walk five blocks to the beach and you have to pay $20.00 for an umbrella if you want one. I doubt I will see any of my deposit back but we will see. I hate when hotels do dishonest things like this. Shower was disgusting, semi mildew in corners, windows were absolutely filthy. Even a road side cheap roach motel has cleaner windows than the Essex House. Hallway carpet, especially the carpet going up the stairs was extremely filthy. CLEAN THE CARPET OR BETTER YET REMOVE IT, YUCK!!! Only upside to this place was the Bacon Bitch, great breakfast every morning next door. It's unfortunate when hotels engage in deceptive pricing practices and fail to meet basic cleanliness standards. Being transparent about additional charges, such as parking fees and deposits, is crucial for ensuring guests can make informed decisions when booking.

Michelle was an outstanding concierge, hostess and hotel Manager. From the moment our group arrived at the Clevelander she was extremely helpful and kind. I can’t stay at another hotel while visiting Miami just because of her attentiveness! Can’t wait to see her again.

Enjoyed our stay at Essex. Nice enough hotel, bed was a little uncomfortable. Bacon Bitch right next door was very convenient. The beach was beautiful but it was quite a walk to get to the place we had chairs provided for us from the hotel. That being said, Simon really made our experience at the hotel worth it. Very nice and friendly.

I loved the Essex hotel. It was close to the action - but not too close - and as an authentic Art Deco hotel, great value for money. The adjoining cafe, Bacon Bitch, is badly named and too noisy (but closes at 6. The reception staff were ‘variable’ but the outstanding one was MICHELLE. She was a STAR. Always welcoming and and helpful and went out of her way to ensure I got a cab to the next correct destination. I would come back for her alone. Brenda

This hotel is amazing from the rooms to the staff. This is my second stay there and both times they did not disappoint. the rooms are clean and modern with beautiful art work. It walking distance to the beach was well as the shopping district and restaurants. As the sister hotel to the cleverlander you have access to the Clevelander pool and beach chairs as well as complementary drinks. Last but not least the staff is WONDERFUL. Especially Beauce, he was so warm and friendly .He was so helpful with our bags and any issues we had. He also gave amazing recommendations for places to see and eat. We will definitely be back on our next trip.
