“OK hotel, except...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Cardozo is an old Art Deco hotel with a mostly original facade. Unfortunately, it has a row of umbrellas and canvas covering the first floor and restaurant, like many of the other hotels on Ocean drive. The room was OK, spacious but no luxury. Sea view was good, including Ocean Drive, the park and the beach. The restaurant played loud music saturday night until 3 in the morning, no sleep until then. The other nights was reasonably quiet from 1, except for a noisy AC. (Don't know why they play the heavy music, nobody in the restaurant seemed to enjoy it, and nobody could have a conversation.) The restaurant seemed to be undrestaffed; if there were more than a few customers, the service went missing. The hotel staff were friendly, but after confirming on the telephone that they would store some baggage while we were on a cruise, they changed their mind when we came to deliver it, so we had to bring it all to sea.

Room Tip: Sea view is good, but lots of noise from the restaurant. If you want to sleep at night, choose a roo...

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We arrived late and dropped our bags quickly in order to get a bite not really paying much attention to the room. It was only later we realised that we were in a rather shabby tired room with the tiniest of bathrooms. The worst was to come when we tried to sleep which was impossible due to the air conditioning machinery directly outside our window. This not only serviced our apartment but you would imagine from the noise the whole of south beach. The following morning after barely sleeping we were woken by cockroaches crawling over us in our bed. We found more in the bathroom. We complained and moved to a renovated and quiet room which was nice but still with a tiny bathroom which was still a bit shabby and with paint peeling. If you like grey eggs I really recommend the Cardozo for breakfast - yuk! Not the most expensive hotel on south beach but certainly not the cheapest by far so I expected more and seriously doubt if Gloria Estefan would have been best pleased had she been awoken by roaches crawling over her.

Feels a bit out of fashion and in the whole hotel there is a funny smell which they try to mask with incents. Very nice staff! No swimmingpool, no gym and the restaurant is very clear they do not have anything to do with the hotel in the same building...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

We live about 30 miles from South Beach and this is always our first hotel choice. The way that this beautiful property was renovated is amazing. Each room that we have been is unique. We have stayed in rooms in the front, side and now the back. Never were bothered by any noise. If you sleep that lightly than maybe you should skip South Beach.
We booked the cheapest room that we could for a Jimmy Buffet concert weekend. The room had a view of the parking garage but it was large and so pretty. It also gave us a view of our new car.
Only thing that did not give this review a 5 star is that the drawers on the side of the bed are not attached to the walls as they should be. When I opened the drawer after I put my clothes in it, it crashed down on my fingers. This is like a law suit waiting to happen.

Just watch your fingers and enjoy this beautiful hotel with wonderful service! We were in room 317.
