We like to eat early for dinner (i.e. before 7pm). We went here at 5pm and had a few drinks and food as part of their happy hour (from 5-8pm). Drinks were well priced and the food was really good - no complaints. Good atmosphere. the only down side was that if you want the happy hour then you have...

The location of this hotel is great for visiting South Beach. Unfortunately, the level of service wasn't nearly as good as our first visit two years ago. While I realize that I booked at a bargain rate, we were assigned to room 211 which has absolutely no view as the window faces a wall less than a foot away. Only...

I booked this hotel with mixed feelings due to the reviews read but ended up with the best choice ever in Miami. The hotel has the best location as everything you need for a good holiday - like nice restaurants, good shopping, the beach for jogging and the art deco area for an evening stroll - is within walking distance....

The Gale South Beach was so great. This is not your typical South Beach Hotel. This is a cozy and quaint hotel with wonderful hospitality. If you need to make any arrangements, reach out to Menin Hospitality. They are wonderful and so attentive. Also, Room Service with Dolce as your food option is always a winner!

Love the Gale! Right in the heart of everything that is South Beach but still noise free in the room. Room was nice size and balcony was a great feature. Additionally the nightclub, The Rec Room, was awesome and the hotel staff was very attentive.

We had overall an ok stay at The Gale South Beach. We had a balcony room which we loved but the room itself was lacking a simple thing as a chair and a clock. Other than the bed in our room with one bedside table there was just a small table that held a try with items you could purchase....
