Dear Juan, We are so sorry the elevator was not working, it was strictly bad luck that it was down during your stay as the elevator typically works year round without any issue, we apologize for any inconvenience that it caused you.

Stayed one night here, post cruise. It is in a great location with easy beach access and many things within walking distance. I think the overall opinion is influenced by how much paid - we were there on a more expensive night, therefore, not as impressed. As it is an older building, some allowances are made in forming opinions, but the rooms were small (basically was the 2 beds and that was it), with poor lighting, yet huge TVs. Shower/bathroom had no useable shelves, so it was quite a juggle in there getting ready. Air conditioning unit was right next to my bed, and not particularly quiet. Staff was able to store our luggage after an early arrival. Only other tip for the strip is to catch lunch at one of the sidewalk spots - most had some type of lunch special. Simply overpriced for dinner, head a few blocks inland for other options.

Dear Guest, we can relate to the varying prices at South Beach, simply put if you are coming in a busy weekend (High Season runs between late December until early May) you will most likely be overpaying for a hotel, regardless of the property you choose to stay in, South Beach gets much more demand than what they can supply, hence why some people feel that it is overpriced, at certain times of the year, the bottom line is that it is overpriced. At the other end of the spectrum, the summer months (June through early December) there are amazing deals to be had, sometimes rooms can be cheaper on South Beach than in mainland Miami. Your observation about Dinner prices is spot on!

Nice hotel in a good location.

Rooms clean but small and front of house are very helpfull though the people outside trying to get you to eat there are not great.

close to all things that make Miami Beach, shops around the corner, bars right next door and the beach over the road

Room Tip: hire a bike for $5 for a hour and cycle along the prom

Thank you for the great review, as locals we can completely sympathize with the "persistent" host/hostesses found all over Ocean Drive trying to get you to eat at their restaurants!

I recently stayed at the Colony, and I could not have been more satisfied with my stay. The rooms were in great condition, the staff was amazing, and Harold at the front desk was very helpful. He was able to provide us with info on the area, places to eat and shop, and he certainly made our stay more enjoyable. I will be returning in May on a girls trip for my birthday, and again in June for another girls trip. I will certainly stay at the Colony for both of my upcoming trips as the hotel is located right on South Beach, across the beach and near all the entertainment one could possibly want. Look no further, this is THE place to stay when coming to Miami!

We have now stayed at the Colony Hotel in South Beach several times over the past winters. We are a couple in their 60's and go to south Florida for two to three long weekends a winter. We enjoy kayaking and spend the long weekends in Keys, Everglades, or West Coast, flying in or out of Miami or Ft. Lauderdale. But we also enjoy the South Beach and its energy, usually spend a night there on trips to the area.
We highly recommend the Colony Hotel. The location on Ocean Drive is great. The hotel staff are very helpful, the rooms are updated, very well maintained and clean. Plus quiet, even with its central location. We have also found it well priced for the area. We especially appreciate Harold, Front Office Manager. He has been just great in working with us in arranging accommodations, helpful while we are there. He provides great all around customer service. We look forward to many more return trips to South Beach and the Colony.
