“Awesome hotel!”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

We stayed one night at the Pelican Hotel after our cruise. We took advantage of the beach chairs and rented an umbrella for the day. We had the best spot on the beach! Both check-in and check-out were smooth and courteous. They graciously held our bags before and after our stay. The Some Like it Wet room was nice and quiet on the 3rd floor. The bathroom was spacious. We loved our complimentary drinks at the bar! The Pelican is just a short walk from everywhere we wanted to visit in South Beach. I hope to return soon for a longer stay!

Room Tip: Some Like It Wet room was nice and had a spacious bathroom. Very quiet room on the 3rd floor.

Stayed here this past weekend after a prior hotel fell thru. I can't say enough about my initial contact to Kiara at the front desk, what a wonderful person. I was initially told there were no rooms available, and Kiara still continued to try to help us find a room in the area, who does that anymore wow actually help people. After a brief hold Kiara came back on and gave us some great news, she found a late checkout. This great ambassador of hospitality even waited by the front door as her shift had ended for us to checkin and I told her I was around the corner, again who does this. Now the good stuff we love the hotel, the room was out of this world. We stayed in the Executive Zebra Suite, Oceanfront. The room was beautiful with all you could for, clean beyond belief. The kids loved it, many pix were on Facebook by my daughter, I guess Dad did okay. The entire staff was great, thanks Lupe, keep up the great work;)

This is a wrong hotel if you travel as a couple and don't wish to feel like in a night club. There is a loud music playing 24/7 in the lobby and café facing the street so peaceful meal is out of question. The facility claims to be a design hotel by Diesel, however it is rather worn down and the pix on the homepage reflect reality poorly. The service in the café/restaurant is poor - pushy on the street in order to get you in, after that mostly inattentive.

My name is Lupe Castillo General Manager of the Pelican Hotel. I apologize for the inconvenienced caused to you during your stay. It is not the practice of the Pelican to have club level music in our restaurant lobby. I have spoken to our team to immediately correct this problem.

With reference to the rooms, the artifacts in all of the guest rooms are original from the time period that reflects the room theme. We have an agreement with a restoration company that helps us maintain the codition of our vintage furniture. If you would be so kind as to share with us the details of which room you are referring to, we will immediately conduct a thorough inspection. If you do not mind, please feel free to contact me at Lupe@Pelicanhotel.com or 305 673 3373.

Thank you for your valued review,

Lupe

It is amazing. I've been to Miami 3 times before and that's from far the best place I've ever been. The Hotel looks GREAT. The cleanliness is impeccable. Very Efficient and Very friendly. I'm amazed! Every little detail is taken care of. They leave information with next day forecast in the bedroom everyday. I'm definitely staying here again!

Brilliant hotel, individual rooms and lots of attention to detail.

Rooms aren't spacious but there's everything you need to have a great time, loved the bathroom and lighting.

Lots of lovely surprises, the genuine staff, the fab free cocktails (4-6pm, highly recommend the champagne cocktail and chocolate martini), the sunbeds are super comfy( better by far than the Delano ) and the towels top quality.

Location is spot on, great for people watching and a hop skip and a jump to the beach!

Will go back, looked around the penthouse.... If only I could afford it!!
