I chose this hotel after reading the reviews and was really glad I did. It is in a great central position in the Art Deco area, and is a funky and friendly place to stay. It isn't luxurious, but had all the things that are important to me - a very comfy bed, good pillows, powerful shower, free bottles of...

We came to South Beach for two nights after visiting Key West for the previous four. The front desk was extremely polite and helpful, filling us in on the four main ammendities a lot of other reviews mentioned. The free happy hour is legit, almost full menu, lots of booze in the drinks and not a penny was charged. The...

Excellent location, supercool rooms, nice and friendly multicultural staff, excellent restaurant and the best espressos in Miami ! This is the only gourmet restaurant on Ocean drive and probably the best mojitos are served here. A touch of Italian and Diesel style in Southbeach !

Arrived to the Pelican late at night to check in and got given a queen deluxe suite, I pointed out to staff that we had paid for a king. She checked and said sorry, and that there was a leak in the room we had ordered. I asked what she would do for us as we had paid more for...

I have to say that my three night stay in Pelican was perfect. The room itself and the hotel service was great. The beach service particularly was fantastic. A young lady Aldana became a familiar face who was friendly and easygoing when I'd ask her for availability. One of the days, one of the beach attendants,Darius, moved chairs for me...
