This was our second trip to Miami, and to the wonderful Pelican Hotel. The team at the Pelican always want to make your stay both pleasurable & truly memorable. We stayed on the 2nd floor in room 213, therefore away from the noise of Ocean Drive. Check-in was quick & easy, the room was always immaculately cleaned & the staff...

This is my first-ever review here: It's May 20, 2013 - just after midniite. Just checked in today after a long business trip... looking for some good times and R&R! Pleasantly surprised with an upgrade and ocean front room at check-in by the lovely front desk receptionist. Also enjoy the generous free happy hour and breakfast deals! HOWEVER, don't count...

We stayed in suite 303 in May 2013. The hotel is on Ocean Ave between 8th and 9th, in the Art Deco section. The room was great, fronting Ocean Ave on the SE corner of the hotel. It is a long room (?40ft) with a sitting area on the ocean side, and continuous windows (which open). There are dual AC...

Dear anandsolai, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Our location is ideal for guests that are looking to walk everywhere worth going., just steps from the heart of the shopping district and everything that the city has to offer.

Location, service, amenities = great stay in Miami Beach. A last minute trip and I really lucked out picking this place. There are many choices on the beachfront and its a little daunting so highly recommend coming here.

Cool hotel directly at the beach (ocean drive), nice and clean room. You enter the hotel through its bar/restaurant, which is very loud but the rooms are quiet. Beds are perfect, air conditioning silent and efficient. Staff of both hotel and bar is helpful and competent, we enjoied the stay.

I really wish I could give 4.5 stars, but I'll round up for the great service and perks. The GM, Paulinho, and Mae (manager at the front desk) went out of their way to accommodate my group of 7 (bachelor party) including letting us borrow shot glasses to get ready for the ensuing night's debauchery. Minus 0.5 stars because the...

The Pelican Hotel is located in the heart of South Beach. The exterior of the property lacks some the Art Deco charm that many hotels on the South Beach strip, but makes up for it in the rooms. Stepping inside of your room (all of the rooms have their own nickname with appropriate theme), is like stepping back in time....

This hotel is kind of funky and in a very good location, but it had a few too many missteps for me to recommend it. I'm giving it a 3 star rating because 2.5 stars isn't an option. I leaned towards 3 instead of 2 because of the location, price, room size and mostly friendly staff. However, in my opinion...
