"Great central location and Deco vibe"
The Essex House is a great location if one wants to experience South Beach. We had some issues with our first room (no hot water), but guest services immediately found us another room, an upgrade, and moved us quickly. There are no refrigerators in the rooms, though there is a space for one in the furniture, and the hotel will bring one up to your room […] upon request (should be a standard item). Furniture and room design are two reasons I give only 3 stars for room comfort. There is a lack of furniture - no dressers or drawers for your clothes, though there is room. And very narrow shelves in bathroom. With tankless toilets there is nowhere to put a standard dop kit or overnight cosmetics bag comfortably. One last comment concerns noise. There are early risers and very late night revellers in South Beach and both kept us awake at various times. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
great location....great staff.......hotel decor needs major updating as well as the immediate neighborhood surroundings. It appears that other buildings are being renovated but the Essex House needs major interior upgrade. Otherwise very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Art Deco Modern"
We were in South Beach for a week and love this location…close to everything! The Hotel is very well maintained and exudes Art Deco personality. Being connected to The Clevelander also offers the juxtaposition of modernism.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Girls weekend at the Essex house"
Girls weekend away, this hotel was perfect! We were one block from the beach, next to one of the coolest ouside bars and with in walking distance of great places to eat and dance. Would totally stay here again. The hotel lobby is nicely decorated, has wonderful staff too. We were able to store our lugguage and change into our swim wear as we arrived […] around noon and check in wasn't till 3-4pm. The hotel also provides beach towels and small bottles of water at no extra charge. The pool area looked nice, but small. But who needed it with the beach right there! the morning breakfest was a mix of cerals, bagels, and other quick items to grab. We had a room with two beds. that were really comfy.

Excellent!!! I would stay there again with out hesitation .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My girlfriend and I stayed one night after coming back from a 3 day cruise. The service was amzing from the moment we walked in. We arrived a few hours early and were able to leave our luggage and hit the beach. Our room was ready an hour before I thought it would be. The room was spotless and the bed so comfy!!!! The bathroom was perfect. We were given […] beach towels and bottled water. Honestly we had the best hotel experinece here!!! We will return! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The staff at ESSEX Hotel where AWESOME! Very helpful with everything! Great location and the bed was nice and comfy. Anything we needed they bought too the room. From a ice bucket to more shampoo they where there!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Solid hotel near Ocean Drive"
The hotel is very well-kept, clean, friendly service at the front desk. They have a nice and small happy hour special for hotel guests: free 4-piece sushi roll and one free glass of wine. The location is very good, close to the beach and Ocean Drive, and the hotel provides towels for the beach and pool. Our stay would have been great, except that the […] walls are paper thin, and we could hear everything that our neighbor was doing (EVERYTHING). The air conditioning is fine except that it blows right onto the bed and is very strong, so I ended up alternating between hot and uncomfortably cold. For the price we paid, I expected to get a little more sound-proofing privacy and more perks, but it is downtown Miami. There is also only valet parking or you can self-park in the structure next door and get a discounted rate if you show your hotel key card. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel, very reasonably priced."
Overall a good hotel if you want a cheap place right on south beach. The facility itself is a little dingy, especially the reception area. For the money, not bad.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel - good location"
Close to the beach and decent shopping & restaurants within a few blocks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stay at this hotel and this hotel only!! Very very clean, super staff, friendly staff!! Amazing Lemonade!! Lol!!! Rooms are clean, spacious! The best hotel for the price when you stay on South Beach!!Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a great time! The hotel was in a great area and away from most of the noise of Ocean Drive, yet close enough to join the party when needed.Genuine Expedia guest review
Besides from the water temperature in the shower my overall experience was GREAT! I would definitely come back and tell a friend. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.Genuine Expedia guest review

"South Beach Gem"
The staff are friendly and very helpful. The art deco hotel is beautifully decorated and kept impeccable. The location is convenient walking distance to all of South Beach. Rate includes complimentary breakfast and happy hour. Both were superb. The room was clean and comfortable. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel, great location and amazing service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location to EVERYTHING!"
The staff was excellent and so friendly. This is a great location for Ocean Drive and the beach. The hotel was very clean, but the elevator was really old and noisy. The hotel was connected to the Clevander and that was really nice. Great atmosphere!Genuine Expedia guest review
"poor breakfast but friendly people"
Breakfast is very poor. No hot dishes at all. Just biscuits. the rooms are old. little furniture. no shelves in the wardrobe for clothes. no table But there are very friendly people at the receptionGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A classic on the tour itinerary"
The Essex House is a very classic hotel. The room was large an comfortable. The staff was very professional and helpful. We enjoyed the convenience of the daily continental breakfast. If we said it was perfect, you would not believe us, so here goes some constructive criticism. The offsite parking rules should have been explained a little more clearly, […] the rates were inconsistent with the check-in paperwork. While the closet in the room was huge and a walk in, there were no drawers in which to put our unpacked clothes. I found it strange that our room was not serviced because we did not place the "please service our room" sign outside the door. (The do not disturb sign was not there either.) But the housekeeping staff was very willing to provide whatever we needed. It may sound "picky", but please know I would highly recommend the hotel to friends without hesitation.

"summer trip with friends"
The hotel is in a great location; the heart of south breath at 10th and Collins. Hotel it's self is up to date especially for the area and with the pool, in hotel bar and cleavlander next door there is a lot to do just in line of site. Over all without a deal on the room it could be a little pricey but with the friendly staff, great location and fair […] amenities I would choose them again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The place to be in South Beach!"
From the moment I arrived ( by car from Tampa) I was treated like a princess. A bellman unloaded the car and the valet took it away. Check in was seamless and the staff was friendly. It is a quiet and elegant hotel. It is on the same property and under the same ownership as the Clevelander which is the place to be in South Beach. As guests of Essex […] House you are treated like royalty there as well. There is helpful staff every where wearing shirts that say "ON IT" and they are . If I hit the lotto I'm moving in!

"Short stay in Miami"
We enjoyed staying at Essex. The hotel is centrally located. The staff is professional and friendly. They need to have the staff dust more in places you think guess dint look. ( behind the table in the king suite) I would stay again and refer to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is on the the Collins Ave side of SOBE. It is a sister property of the Cleveander and right next door so if you don't want all the noise and partying, but still get the benefits Essex House is the place. Very friendly and attentive staff as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Amazing, modern and comforting hotel in s. beach"
Amazing and modern. Recently rennovated. Immediately upon arriving (2 hours before check in), we were NOT ONLY given a room, but upgraded to a suite (i assume they over booked). The room had everything you could want except a microwave. That is the only flaw i could think of. As far as food, we ate at the restaurant in the hotel 2 out of 3 nights. We […] tried every cocktail and almost every dish. EVERYTHING was incedible. The best cocktails i have ever had. Extremely creative food and well presented. Some of the nicest people in a hotel and restaurant that i have ever experienced. Small but beautiful pool area. Overall, amazing experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great location great service complimentary bottled water beach towels and complimentary breakfast. People were very friendly and helpful!! I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nicely decorated with an excellent staff."
Have stayed in South Beach before but wanted to try a different hotel. Good value for money with its own restaurant and it is related to the Clevelander which is in front on Ocean Drive. Excellent friendly and helpful staff..Genuine Expedia guest review
"It Was Not What I Expected"
First off, the parking is horrible. The hotel provides valet parking however the valet agent did not get our car, we had to park in the garage which the hotel told us it's only $35 for 24hrs, well we paid $60!! The inside looks run down, the walls are like an old apt in Brooklyn NY. There was a huge dead moth on our bed sheet and the bathroom is super […] small, no place to put anything. It's us definitely not worth the money. The only thing great about it is the location. Close to everything in walking distance and is a sister hotel to the Clevelander. The beach and ocean drive is right there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to everything without the crazy noise"
Great location with wonderful staff. Top notch service. Quiet with a lovely Japanese restaurant next door as well as the crazy, party atmosphere of the Clevelender in the same block. We couldn't hear any of the crazy parties at Clevender which was great. Plan on staying at Essex again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Free Continential Breakfast & Happy Hour"
Loved the complimentary continential breakfast and happy hour option, with free glass of wine and sushi roll. However, the dark bar area didn't meet the expectation of enjoying a cocktail while on vacation. It would have been great to have a more welcoming outdoor area with music. The staff was accommodating, friendly and very professional. Needs to […] have a safe in the room. Great location! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
