"3 college girls on spring break"
Two of my friends and I went to stay here for a few days over spring break. None of us had ever been to Miami before, but the Dorchester was very inviting and in a good neighborhood. Stray a few blocks tho and it doesn't feel too friendly. The amenities were great. Loved having the 2 chairs on the beach and the staff was fantastic! They even slipped […] us extra passes since there were three of us and each pass only covers 2 chairs and an umbrella. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
we wanted a nice spot walking distance from the beach and from my experience that either means expensive resort or slum motel by the beach. this hotel was actually nice! very affordable and only 2 blocks from everything we wanted only one block from the beach though. we were tricked by the "free" drinks because of the mandatory $1 tip per drink but […] still only $1 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Just spent the one day at the Dorchester. Enjoyed it very much, location was great, shopping, beach access. Although we checked out at noon, we were able to continue parking until we left at 3 PM. Even though we had to pay for parking, it was well worth it, absolutely no parking anywhere. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a pretty decent stay. Though expensive (location, location, location) we had a good time at Dorchester overall and I'd recommend it to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was hosting a bachelorette party and got one suite and one double room, it was perfect! Everyone had a blast and the happy hour at the hotel bar was a great place to congregate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Poor room quality and mediocre service"
We were put in a room to the main street which was very noisy and we could not find sleep. The room was not in a good condition. Especially the bathroom was a bit shabby. The quality of room and service was not appropriate for the price charge. I do not recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Safe and clean"
Stayed two nights with two nine year olds before going on a cruise. Hotel is safe and clean, easy access to the beach. Staff was helpful, held our bags aside on last day so we could have more beach time. Somewhat noisy but I see this in the hotels on S Beach. I would recc this hotel to others. Wish there was a coffee maker in the room, or complimentary […] coffee in lobby. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"not worth it"
mandatory fees ought to be included in the price advertised. my room cost $47.00 more than advertised. For the extra money, I could have had a much nicer hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Dorchester Hotel Dear Guest, We apologize if our resort fee took you by surprise, but they are clearly published on Hotels.com in the "Dorchester Hotel’s small print" section under "mandatory fees" and on our own website. The great majority of hotels in South Beach have resort fees; it's a standard for this area. You would have encountered them almost anywhere else. And while nobody likes fees, we're committed to making the resort fee an EXCELLENT value for our guests. For $15 per night, guests receive: two beach loungers and an umbrella for each day of their stay, wifi access, access to the business center, free local calls, and unlimited $1 cocktails from 7pm to 8pm every day. If have just one drink during happy hour, the package represents a $50 value-- the best on South Beach. Again, I'm sorry you were unaware of the resort fee before arrival. We always work hard to ensure they are published on booking sites and our website so guests are aware ahead of time. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with us. Regards, Chris Gorgoni - Director of Operations

Terrible service despite a high priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent but somewhat "hidden" costs"
Quaint boutique hotel in an area close to many things. $30 for parking seemed exhorbitant + a mandatory $15 "resort fee" even though I wasn't using the "resort" faculities inflated the room price by ~$48 after taxes which effectively added 30% to the room cost. There were a few issues with the bathroom that I felt it would've been nice to offer a discount […] as a matter of recognizing the inconvenience but that didn't appear to occur to the desk staff. All in all a decent place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel before a cruise"
Stayed at this hotel a day before a cruise. Arrived at the hotel around 11am and eventhoug the checking time is not until 3pm or 4 pm they accomodated us which was very convinient. The room was very specious and is two blocks from the beach and about 5 blocks from the Lincoln Place Mall. Good location, good price, decent stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dorechester in South Beach"
I was surprised the room was so small but it was OK...didn't spend much time there. It was clean and the front desk people was really nice!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wish it was better!"
Upon arriving, there was a line to check in but they got me all set up without a long wait. I was able to park my car there in the hotel lot, prior to my check in time. That was a big help! I stopped by the "happy hour" after work and asked for a glass of wine. The bartender stated that they only served rum and cokes. After getting to my room, I realized […] I had not received wifi instructions. I called the front desk to ask and he said I could come down and get instructions. Not ideal. The shower had hair in it from a previous guest and the windows did not close all the way. My room was on a side street on the second floor and was extremely loud throughout the night. The room itself was a nice space and I loved the outside courtyard and pool. Beyond that, I would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An OK Hotel"
The hotel is well located at the northern section of the South Beach -- a popular and busy area. Our room was located on the ground floor beside the hotel courtyard and was noisy until the wee hours -- people were talking loudly just outside our windows. I would suggest asking for a room on the other side of the building (not the courtyard side) if […] possible. We were given passes to the beach club (which allowed us the use of beach chairs and umbrella) which we neither wanted or used -- but, upon check out we found we were charged $15 per day for these. When questioning this on the bill, we were told it is required and not optional. This is just another way to increase the bill. The breakfast was very poor and expensive -- but everything was expensive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the only somewhat good thing about this hotel is the location.the room was nasty it smelled like urine and there were stains on the sheets.when we told the front desk to change the sheets they sent someone who just gave the sheets to me and told me to change the sheets!!!! Do not go there !!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unpleasant but clean"
Hotel was clean and decent, but old. room was newly renovated, nice beds hard wood floor. However, be careful when you travel with lol girls or wife. I was out jogging and suddenly got a call from my wife saying that some guy in a uniform entered door after couple knocks saying something other than English while my wife was completely naked, she screamed […] and he left. I complained to the hotel room service and the at the front. The hotel People were like they were so sorry and didn't specify the way that they would do to solve the problem. Left the hotel feeling entirely disappointed. l Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for the money"
Nice hotel with a good location. Nice and big rooms. Clean. However it was a bit noisy. Noice coming from the not so isolated door and also from the street outside (depending on if your room is on that side of the street).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great south beach stay"
Great hotel, loved the stay, location was top notch. One thing I didn't like was the food. Stay away from the cafe breakfast (especially the buffet), and room service. Food is horrible and overpriced. Use the Yelp app to find tons of places nearby that can deliver anything you want. Overall really loved the place, and would stay again. Was there for […] 4 nights.

Dankness at the DorchesterGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Location was good, hotel was old, dirty, the room was smelly, small and the beds were not comfortable,. We tried to cut our stay by one day but the hotel wouldn't let us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall good for the price"
Overall good place to stay. Parking is paid $29 per day and again it is limited too. So we have to park at 3 blocks away from the hotel. They do not provide breakfast for free. Overall good place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not original Dorchester"
We thought it was the original Dorchester luxury hotel and it is not! That was very disappointing! We'd not pay this price or choose this hotel had we known it was not not original Dorchester. Though the service and hotel staff were excellent. I wanted a hotel with a pool but the pool was completely in shadow which was also disappointing. Overall we […] felt extremely misled and will not choose or recommend this hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Overall a great stay."
This was a weekend away with 2 friends. We had 1 room with two double beds. The room was more then adequate. Hotel was very nice. The front desk staff could use some training, espically how when you come to check in and the guy never cracked a smile. I wanted to ask him "who died".Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Room and hotel were subpar a hotel with a window unit, no fitness center, or place to dine. Is not acceptableGenuine Expedia guest review

"Room was small, very small."
Very small room, probably a 2 star hotel (atleast the room I was in).Genuine Expedia guest review
I was quite disappointed with the hotel even though the price was a bargain for Miami and very close to the beach. We had no hot water for out showers in the morning and to take a very cold quick cold ones.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value in South Beach"
The Dorchester was a great value for our stay in South Beach. Good location right on Collins Avenue, just a block from the beach and walking distance to lots of good shops/restaurants. The property is quaint and well-maintained with a nice pool and tropical landscaping all around the building. Nothing too flashy, but you get a clean room, convenient […] beach access, and a friendly staff. I would definitely recommend to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Its was a very good experience! And close to the beach and other places of interest like dinning and shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel has fabulous location, and it has enormous potential. The room assignment was not up to par, the basic service was understaffed. All in all, it was an okay stay, but, again, the hotel has enormous potential !Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"It was really good. Real close to the beach."
It really felt like a vacation. Very relaxing, and stress free.Genuine Expedia guest review
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The facility is a lot nicer than i thought it would be. its safe to say that i would definitely return. The suites are a very good size. Its my new home away from home in South Beach. What I did not like was that Expedia was a little misleading when I booked the room. I read it was either a 2-double bed or 1-king […] bed room. When I booked the room i requested a double. when I got to the hotel. it was a king. The hotel said that it was to the discretion of the hotel assign the room. The bed request, is just that... a request... not a guarantee I did have a couple of not so positive encounters with random staff. I mean, if you see 3 women with large suitcases and multiple carry on bags in their hands, its rude to push through them to get through the hotel door. There was no courtesy what so ever when it came to door holding. SMH The front desk people were pleasant. Pool was nice. wish they had more space for lounges. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel for the price right in South Beach"
Dorchester hotel is a pretty decent hotel in the middle of South Beach. Stayed here for one night for the Florida Supercon event. It was about 4 blocks or so from the convention center which was nice. Parking was a nightmare but this is the normal for South Beach. Elevator was kind of scary to ride, would start before door closes. Plenty of stuff to […] eat around which was great! Room was comfortable but the shower in 329 had an annoying bubble on the bottom of it so it was like a riding the waves while taking a shower, quite annoying, on top of that the shower head when moved anything other than the way it was spraying all over the top of the shower onto the shower and floor. Fun times. Overall decent hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was in good condition, nice and clean on the inside but the room was very small. Service is very slow, I to request several items such as towels, wash clothes and toliet paper (we never had the proper amount). The toliet kept clogging and we had to call several times when requesting for service. I felt like they remade our beds and took out […] the trash, houskeeping is bad! I would go there again only if I have to otherwise I would book at a different hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
