“Fabulous place”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

I booked another hotel on sobe a month ago for my mother and i and when I arrived it was horrible! The rooms were small and dirty and the staff was not very friendly. After walking around and looking for a better place, we came across the Essex which was very well decorated and had a great look and feel. We were so distraught about making such a bad decision with the previous hotel, but Brad and Eric were super helpful! We had a bunch of questions about the hotel and they answered them all! On top of that, they allowed us to see a room before we actually commited to paying for the room and we absolutely loved it! The room was quiet facing the courtyard in the back and easily accessible on the second floor. The Eesex definitely made our trip much better because of its great location, great prices and great service! I def recommend staying here and I'll be back with my husband in the summer!!

My partner and I enjoyed our stay in this beautiful art deco hotel. The friendly and helpful staff make it a pleasant stay. Good bar with nice out door seating area and a small pool to cool off in after a hot day. Free towels for the beach and free happy hour make for a stress free stay. The rooms are not big by American standards but this hotel was built in the early 1900's but still very nice rooms. Ask for a side room as they are quieter and away from the busy Collins Avenue. Having stayed in a number of good hotels in South Beach over the years, the Essex is the best to date.

Room Tip: Ask for a side room away from Collins Avenue.

The room was small but clean, room 306 faces the alley with a view of a wall & trash bins. Also, there was a moldy/musky smell (I think from carpet) I had a bit of a cold and the smell seemed to make my cough & congestion worse. I booked Sunday for stay Saturday-Monday. Considering the late booking, they were accommodating. The hotel is located directly behind The Clevelander. I'd recommend the Essex House if you would like to get a couple hrs sleep. Overall, a nice stay.

Our family stayed here over the Easter holiday and could not have asked for a more enjoyable experience. We had to be moved from the Clevelander because not everyone was 21. Dissapointing at first, to be moved, but then it turned out to be a bonus in disguise for us. From A to Z, this rocked. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Just returned from my second visit to the Essex House in 4 months. Elegant, classy hotel. NOT stuffy. Staff is wonderful. In the middle of everything you go to South Beach for. One short block from Ocean Drive and the beach. I like that it is quiet day and night. I have stayed on Ocean Drive where it is SO loud day and night. Hard to get a good night's sleep. I look forward to my next visit to South Beach and the Essex House.
