"Expensive, But Worth It"
This is a great South Beach Hotel located right on Ocean Drive and across the street from the beach at Lummus Park. The staff is very attentive from the valet to front desk to restaurant. Previously just known as The Tides, its one of South Beach's art deco palaces with a nice mezzanine level pool and beach access. The outdoor seating of its restaurant […] is a great place to people (and car, after all this is South Beach) watch. Best part: with the room comes lounge chairs and an umbrella right on the beach (included in the price). It IS expensive, but if you're into the South Beach experience you'll enjoy your stay. One other thing: this IS Ocean Drive in South Beach, so do NOT stay here if you want peace and quiet. Loud activity and neighboring clubs go long and loud up until about midnight so if you can't stand the noise, move a block or two inland. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Class on ocean drive"
Loved everything about this hotel !!!! It is by far the classiest well kept hotel on ocean drive !!! And the pool is open 24 hours a dayGenuine Expedia guest review
Perfectly fine stay. Good food served outdoors. friendly staff. Stayed in small suite facing Ocean Drive. Only quibble was that bathroom needed some brighter lighting & maybe a hook or two for towelsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Even better than description"
After much scrutinizing about where to stay in Miami Beach, we finally chose The Tides. This lovely boutique hotel is central to South Beach thus we were able walk to a fine selection of restaurants. The outdoor set up is chic and excellent for watching the scene on Ocean Drive. From the moment we exited the car to the personal accompaniment to our […] room, we were felt welcomed and appreciated as guests. The room was large and spacious with a perfect view of the ocean. The lobby was tastefully decorated and served coffee, tea and pastries in the morning -gratis. The beach is right across the street and the hotel provides free setup also. The only complaint is the outside placement of tables and chairs early one morning was very loud. I didn't complain since I had to get up early that day anyway. I know they would have done something about it immediately if I had told them. We were extremely pleased with our stay at the Tides and would stay there again!

"Absolute Must Stay"
November 2012. Stunning art deco hotel right in the heart of South Beach on Ocean Drive. Rooms are classic chic South Beach, stunningly beautiful. Marble everywhere, clean cut yet classic decor. Bathroom is beautiful, huge marble tub/shower, lovely designer toiletries. Very nice closet/room with matching robes and slippers, very adequate size safe and […] well stocked bar with glassware. Extremely comfy king-size bed. Huge flatscreen t.v. Terrific view to the beach from every room. Fabulous pool with cabanas and lounge chairs. Lobby is gorgeous and welcoming. Had complimentary continental breakfast that was absolutely delicious and elegant. Entrance to hotel is like a personal backyard sitting area, makes you feel like you are home. Everyone from the people out front who greet you and help with bags to people behind the desk could not have been more courteous or helpful. They made you feel like you were the only guests there. It just felt decadent and fun to stay there. Lots of night life surrounding the hotel. Beach is a short walk across the street and the hotel has two complimentary beach loungers and umbrella per room. We can't wait to go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location! But not modernized or high comfort"
This hotel is all about location if beach proximity is your primary ask- and if you aren't confident in many of the old, dated options on Ocean Drive. This is the nicest- but that still means old tile floors and fixtures in the room and a tired no-longer trendy vibe. As the area has passed its prime, a lack of valet assistance, a less than vibrant lobby […] and restaurant all characterize that other options offer a better experience.

"Great hotel in South Beach."
Great Hotel in South Beach. It can get a little noisy at night but it did not bother us. Great place for people watching.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, especially the service"
Everything was amazing, from the location to the rooms to the lobby to the pool to the restaurant/bar area. However, the service was perhaps the best I ever received from a hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Two Nights in South Beach"
excellent location right across from the beach on Ocean Blvd. Very expensive for the hotel stay one receives, however for South Beach - not bad.Genuine Expedia guest review
Maid service was terrible dry blood on sheets had to call maid back everyday.It was not like this before.The noise was terrible it was just awfulGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed in the Amber Suite. It was a beautiful room with a spa bathroom and a great private outdoor deck. Views were incredible. Staff was great, especially Francisco. He gave us great dining info. We will definitely return to the Tides. And, the pictures on the website are pictures of the Amber suite.Genuine Expedia guest review
The main purpose of our visit is to celebrate our honeymoon so for that it was so quiet and the stuff were very friendly and always greet you with a big welcoming smile we really like it in here. The building it self was very beautiful and when you enter you can feel so warm like you are entering your home. The view from our suite was so frish and nice […] you can see the ocean and the road activities at the night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The classiest hotel on Ocean Drive/across from Lum"
The classiest hotel on Ocean Drive/across from Lummus park. The only draw backs is the small pool that is on the back side of the hotel, and a small exercise room with equipment in disrepair. The service at the hotel was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great room, excellent service, luxury!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Price for the quality is too high. Pool was closed because of storm.Genuine Expedia guest review

THE SERVICE AND STAFF WERE GREAT! I WOULD VISIT AGAIN.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice. Would stay again."
Great service from valet and front desk. Our room was beautiful and clean. The restaurant seemed short staffed as we waited a while for our server, yet there were several empty tables. Couple of things to keep in mind: gin and tonic was $18 (that is WAAAAAAAY too much for a small drink), and parking was $35 for one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel on Ocean Drive!"
The Tides was fantastic. Had contemplated staying at the Betsy, the Lowes and the Victor. Happy we landed here! Great boutique hotel with friendly staff and fabulous beds. The decor was quite chic and intimate. Calm pool area, marginal fitness center, small private bar. Loved the visit and definitely recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect hotel on Ocean Drive"
We had a great time at the Tides. The room was lovely and much larger than we expected. We arrived pretty early so our room wasn't ready, but the front desk let us use the pool and had welcome cocktails sent to us. Great service and great location!!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel! Love it!"
The hotel was fabulous! It was very clean, and seemed to be upscale but for a reasonable price. The location was GREAT! Close to the beach and all the restaurants and bars. All the rooms have ocean front rooms! The hotel is very spacious and safe! When we come back, we wil stay here! The hotel has its own area on the beach in which they provide beach […] umbrella and towles. Enjoyed our stay! Love it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Serene joint on South Beach!"
Love this hotel - it is a little dead but after the madness of South Beach I came to appreciate the quietness and stillness. I was concerned that no one ate at the hotel and since I was there for business matters and did not have time to eat there, I was not able to experience the food. Rooms are well appointed! Gym needs an update (treadmill was broken) […] but then again no one was ever in the gym besides me! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Hotel, Location could be better"
Pros: The hotel and pool are gorgeous and the food is really good in the restaurant. We found our room very comfortable and the staff was lovely. If you wake up early enough they serve free continental breakfast and the beach offers hotel guests free chairs and an umbrella. Cons: The hotel is next to The Palace, a gay bar that gets a LOT of traffic. […] I was woken up several nights by screaming men. The bar has drag shows every couple hours that get a little wild. The beach that the hotel is situated in front of is mostly public beach. We preferred the relaxation of the pool and of course you could get alcohol at the pool and not drink on the beach.

Hotel is in the great location best location but the room has no privacy, if u are just friend not recommended because the bath room and shower are see through I meant see through clear glass window not just shadow, so every time u need to use the restroom one of other person has to leave the room and the ocean front was not that great the windows very […] small and we stayed at 4 th floor can hear noises all night long. But over all it prob one of the best around the area that looks good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
If you want to be in the SoBe night life, the Tides is your spot. Right on Ocean and 12th, next to a loud Hotel Victor. The Signature King rooms are spacious at not that dated, like many hotels in SoBe can be. The room was clean but some items like the area rug and couch had some dirt stains.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Tides--A time of change"
Great hotel, great location. Disappointomg in that hotel was a little tired and upkeep was not up to previous levels. The holel is going through a ownership change and not sure if it will up to the previous standard. I would be cautious at this time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I love this hotel!!!!"
The Tides Staff was wonderful and basically planned all of our trips and outings. Ficky was an awesome concierge and made the trip memorable for me and my staff. It was centrally located and right in the mix! I can't wait to return in a few weeks!!Genuine Expedia guest review

I took my husband here for his Christmas present. We were both impressed from the moment we walked in. The staff remembered us by name as soon as we checked in. They were extremely pleasant and very helpful and accommodating.

"perfect Miami Hotel"
Everything was so easy and professional on arrival. The staff we're really helpful and the hotel was stunning. We had an Ocean View Suite which lived up to our expectations. Being right on Ocean Drive meant we were close to all the restaurants and bars of the art deco region. Our only regret was that we were not there for longer.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great service, nice location"
We stayed at the Tides for a couple of nights - we had a very nice room on the 3rd floor. Service was consistently of a high quality. The rooms were nice but looked just a touch worn down for the price that we paid. The location is great (right on Ocean Drive) but it gets very loud at night - esp the 2 restaurants that are right next to the hotel. Overall, […] satisfied for the price.

We had a wonderful vacation at the Tides South Beach. The service at this hotel was exceptional and began even prior to our arrival when the hotel contacted me requesting advice on how they can assist in making it a memorable stay. Upon arriving at the hotel via taxi, I was greeted by name curbside by the doorman (not sure how he knew who I was but […] he sure got it right). He then escorted us to the front desk where we were again greeted by name and welcomed by a wonderful employee named Sheerley who assisted us throughout our stay. The room we stayed in was extremely spacious and had a wonderful view of Ocean drive and the beach. The room had a large comfortable King bed and all the amenities that you would expect to have, except for an iron and ironing board, which were brought to the room promptly upon request and remained with us for the duration without a problem. The staff all seemed to address you by name and apparently take great joy in doing their job as not one person ever made us feel as we were a burden or as if we were being shaken down for a tip (which we gladly gave as helpful as they were). It was clear that each of the employees made every effort to make our stay memorable. I found the room to be quiet and was never bothered by any street noise from Ocean Drive, and certainly not from within the hotel. The hotel was very quiet and had very little of the hustle and bustle of the many party hotels in the area. This served us perfectly, as we danced, and partied at nearby hotels and then walked back and enjoyed the serenity of this beautiful hotel. This hotel was perfectly suited for a romantic getaway. The restaurant "La Maria" was rarely full but served delicious food and some good "Mojitos", and had a gorgeous outside seating area overlooking Ocean Drive. The restaurant had nice music playing in the background at the perfect level to hear yet enjoy your table conversation. In the mornings, the hotel provided complimentary coffee and ligh Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I would definitely stay at The Tides again"
I stayed at The Tides during a business meeting. I picked The Tides due to its proximity to the Convention Center and it was also close to the beach. It turned out to be perfect for me. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the room was clean and well-appointed with a beautiful view and the location was close to my meeting, the beach and many of […] the restaurants and clubs. The front desk staff greeted me by name which was certainly not necessary but was a nice touch. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Luxury hotel in Art Deco region"
The hotel is in a prime position on ocean drive. Art Deco centre close with lots information,Beach fabulous only a few minutes walk away. Free sun beds and umbrella courtesy of hotel. Right in middle of ' Miami scene' but hotel a place of tranquility. Staff are exceedingly helpful and friendly and v welcoming. Only possible down side is a v noisy bar […] next to hotel ... Particularly lively Friday and Saturday nights. ( but also entertaining ) would definitely return ( celebrated 40 th wedding anni here ) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A South Beach Art Deco Treasure"
Had a great corner room with 270 degree views of the beach. Very comfortably appointed and spacious. The decor is individual and appropriate to the location - a nice change from sterile hotel chains. Best of all was the service - everyone I dealt with was cheerful, eager to help and recognised me every time I came in and out of the hotel. Having travelled […] 24+ hours to get there the warm welcome, and prompt processing of my registration, were very welcome. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Largest hotel room I've ever had."
Large elegantly decorated luxrious rooms, if not the best arrangement. Staff were great, helpful and friendly. The food, drinks, etc were very expensive but that's fairly typical for South Beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our second visit and very high standard. A touch of class in the surroundings of the vibrant South Beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great lovely boutique hotel, restaurant also best tried in MiamiGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is on South Beach and in a central location although it can prove to be noisy at times. However, the music from the bar below finishes at 11pm. The rooms (we had a suite) are very spacious and of a high standard. The bathrooms are also very nice, although the shower is within a high sided bath, so if you have difficulty in raising your legs […] then it is not for you. The staff are very helpful - the front desk can be inexperienced at times which led us to feel frustrated, if there was any major problems I am not sure how they would deal with them. The Internet was not working on the morning we were checking out as there was a tropical storm approaching. We advised them we needed to check the Internet as we were driving 4 hours to Orlando in bad conditions and needed to see if our flight would be taking off but they never got back to us. When we went to check out we found that the front desk had a different Internet system that was working - they could have offered to look up what we needed but didn't. Also when checking out they first printed out the wrong rooms bill, then started to answer another customer query who arrived after us and offered to print something out for them and asked us to hold on a moment while they dealt with him, then answered the phone and dealt with the call all whilst we were waiting for the correct bill to be reprinted. Not very professional in my opinion. Lastly the swimming pool is noisy from trucks and cars below. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A delightful stay, the staff were very nice and helpful. The hotel was quiet even though the streets were noisy. The view from the room was lovely. All in all very good value for money. We would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing experience offset bynoise & cold food"
Gorgeous hotel however situated right next to a raving gay bar which was incredibly noisy and intimidating. Excellent service at all times from all staff. Sadly food was served cold and the restaurant lacked ambience or exclusivity in keeping with the rest of the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In the heart of the art deco world"
Location was fabulous especially for those looking for art deco experience; however very close to bar with loud music.Being across from the beach was also great. Historical value of hotel was also nice for someone who likes architecturet. I was only disappointed in restaurant which I found to be of very average quality and not equal to cost of room […] or other luxuries. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
