As two Aussie girls in our 20’s traveling around the USA the Clay Hotel was an awesome place to stay!
We did book through a 3rd party website (last minute, Expedia etc) so when we arrived our booking wasn’t on the system but the staff were great and helped us.
The location of the Clay Hotel is beyond fabulous, it’s situated on a pedestrian mall that’s full of great bars and restaurants- so there’s basically a street party every night! Plus the beach is about a 3 minute walk from the hotel AND they have a reserved seating area on the beach so you can get towels, food and drinks from the comfort of a sunbed and beach umbrella.
We changed rooms a couple of times as my friend is a bit picky but the staff easily accommodated us.
The rooms are small but always clean and suited us well.
As with the whole of Miami, not many people speak English so be prepared for some very loud and rude Spanish speakers that usually stay in the hotel.
The architecture of the front of the building is divine and the hotel mascot of the flamingo is gorgeous! Don’t forget to ask for a Clay Hotel towel which we received on check in (it’s covered with the flamingo design!) would definitely come back!! More
