"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.

"Paying for location"
Overpriced for the room, but you are paying for location. It was clean but not spectacular.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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
Beware of hidden charges.Free wifi and happy hour charges appear on checkout date.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice Hotel, fairly priced and clean rooms. I just wish it was closer to the main beach.Genuine 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
Fantastic stay since check in till check out!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unfriendly, Rude and Horrible (not recommending)"
I stayed in room #218 on 11/10/2014 Jose, Front desk guy is unfriendly and very rude to customer.... On Hotels.com--they list valet parking under transportation--> that is a lie ...they charge $15 dollars for wifi (not free)..Room was too cold ..there was no mini heater in my room, sink was clogged...bathtub is so old ..Many things that they listed […] on Hotels.com for this hotel is a lie..

Great experience nice hotel close to beach and shopping I went out there for my birthday I love south beachGenuine 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
"My stay at this hotel"
Our room had a funking smell and they really need darker curtains to block the sun out of the room. Other then that the location and staff was great!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
"Very cool and comfortable"
Had a funky smell in the room, but everything else was awesomeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall it was a good experience. We requested a rollaway bed for a last minute guest and they could never figure out how to get us one even though they said they would.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room is very small they Don't like to give you towels alot of hidden fees in the price...parking resort fee and a $200 deposit this hotel was the worst!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms are small and the A/C is loud. For one night it was fine. Staff was really nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonably priced in good location"
The hotel fulfilled it's purpose, e.g. Providing a place to sleep located close to the beach and lots of the action. However, I was disappointed by the small size of the rooms and the fact that everything felt in need of an upgrade.Genuine Expedia guest review
Awesome placeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Miami Beach Classic"
The title means the you can expect the following: smelly and dank rooms and hallways, noisy air conditioners, internet for a ridiculous daily rate and the bogus 'resort charge' that is NOT included in your Hotels.com price. If you need to be by the Miami Beach Convention Center, book elsewhere. There are better for less money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing 4 nights!"
Great location with easy access to the beach, restaurants and night life!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy parking here"
Hotel is well located and the parking is very handy. It is useful to be able to easily park, leave in your car for a excursion, and repark in the ground floor lot..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had no idea what to expect and, overall, I think the Dorchester is a good hotel. I thought the bathroom could have been a little more up to date. The a/c unit was loud. But I found the staff to be helpful and courteous. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Couldn't park at the hotel...had to park 3 blocks and walk back ....cost $16 to park...not a big deal but took time away from our trip. Also had to pay a "mandatory" $16 charge for internet, rental of the chairs on the beach and happy hour...which I didn't do or use any of...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel very clean got an upgrade for free love the csr close to everything u need any time I'm in south beach I know where to stay now!!!#1Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, safe, and pleasant staff. Not much in the way of frills, but the price is certainly good for this area. Perfect for a 1 or 2 night visit. Room is a little small for prolonged stays.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel but wouldnt stay here again.."
First off the parking isnt free and is very tight (small) Theres a charge of 30 a night.. Wifi absoulely sucks! Beach is ACROSS a very busy street... Pool is small .. Overall for $100-170 a night theres a lot of better hotels in the area. Rooms are clean and comfy if your going for a night or two.Genuine Expedia guest review
i was pleasantly surprised at the quality and cleanliness. i read good reviews but so many of the hotels nearby had such atrocious reviews that i was afraid. the service was outstanding as well! we were there for a convention and walking distance there and to lincoln road was perfect. very short walks which were great in miami heat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed here during WMC 2014 it was clean and updated, staff was decent, close to everything, would definitely stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very cozy hotel in great location"
I just spent two nights at the hotel with my friend and enjoyed it very much. The hotel was very cozy and had a beautiful courtyard. The staff was very friendly and the entire property had a very artsy feel to it. The room was very modern and clean. The bathroom was not the greatest but it was clean. Breakfast was available in a good variety at a reasonable […] price. The pool had a good size and was very clean as well. The location is great, it's just minutes from the beach and Lincoln Road which is a street that is closed off for cars and lines countless restaurants and shops. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Our stay at Dorchester"
Overall, hotel stay was good. Weak points were wi-fi at room that never worked and front-desk staff that seemed not to care about that. I had to go to the main lobby to connect my computer to their wi-fi network. Parking is available but you pay $39.00 plus taxes per night... that wasn't very clear to me when I made the reservations. You do get chairs […] and umbrella at the beach, but you're paying for that $15/day; it's the "resort fee"... But the rooms were clean and comfortable, and location is good as well.
