"Great Hotel !!"
Great price !! We will stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, but needs work."
This hotel is in a great location, but the room decor is more focused on being chic than comfortable. Check-in was problematic, as we walked into an uncleaned room. Housekeeping staff was very unfriendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel for the family or couples"
Great Hotel, location and customer service Hotel is perfect to spend the weekend with the family or your partnerGenuine Expedia guest review
The location was great, however the carpet outside the rooms could use some improvements. There isn't a bar on site, but they make up for it by providing drinks on the room. Other than that the hotel is lovely. The price was not suitable for the room ,but I made due. The rooms are indeed true to scale / clean bedding, and the sheets were crisp . I would […] rate the room a 3.7 The staff was awesome - super friendly and welcoming Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"make it worse for my experience in Miami Beach"
To its price and 3.5 star, I have to say it is not worthy at all. No kitchen in the hotel. The worse is the light in the bathroom, it is sound automatic. It won't turn off after you leave. And the bathroom wall is glass and the light can penetrate through and affect your sleep. If you don't have a problem with it, it is fine. The wall is not sound approved. […] Somebody walk or speak in the hallway, it gets pretty noisy. It is right at the south edge of the ocean drive. Big building in the front blocking the view of the ocean. The staff seems nice, but not professional. It feels like a motel instead of hotel, but it charges as 3.5 star hotel price. I think it is rediculous. Plus it is still under construction, making you feel unsaft and unconformtable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best All Around, A Block from the Beach"
If you are looking for a place to stay near the beach for an affordable price, within walking distance of everywhere in south beach, then this is the hotel for you. If you want personal service, to feel like you are staying at a friend's, then this is the place for you! I can't under-emphasize how happy I was with the hotel and staff. I am definitely […] going back there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect. Less than a block to the beach and to all the action. The rooms were nice and the beds were super comfy. Will definitely be staying here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved the look of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and polite. No complaints.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely and quiet"
This hotel is lovely, quiet and small and super clean. Its newness is a big plus but also a lot of care was taken seemingly with comfort and aesthetics. It has super comfortable mattresses and bedding, lovely showers, small but nice balconies. Very nice, as is the staff. No restaurant but lots of good ones nearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, comfortable, but a little run down"
This was our first trip to Miami. I was pleasantly surprised by the location - just a block from the water and all the craziness of Ocean Dr. north of Fifth so you could easily walk to everything but not be kept up all night. I liked the design of the hotel - very spare and modern. Unfortunately, our room had seen better days. The shower door was broken […] so you could not close it all the way, the toilet bowl was stained and scratched, some of the tile around the shower surround was chipped. There were a few ants in the bathroom and bedroom - maybe that's common in this area. The woman at the front desk was fantastic - very friendly and helpful. I wish I knew her name. She worked Easter and never acted like she wished she was home, though I'm sure she felt that way. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I would definitely stay here again when I come to Miami. It was very well located near the beach and restaurants. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. All the front desk staff I met were pleasant and helpful. It was also very easy to pull up and park my rental car before I returned it. There is an Enterprise within walking distance which […] was convenient because we were coming back from the Keys Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Enjoyed our stay at Sense Hotel"
Sense is a lovely little hotel in a great location - close enough to the action but tucked in away in a quieter area of SoBe. Loved the tempurpedic mattresses and rooms were clean and comfortable. Pick up a hotel chair and towel, walk across the street, and you are on a lesser crowded stretch of beach. Although there is no in-hotel cafe, there are plenty […] nearby and it was a short walk to nearby Starbucks for morning coffee. Alex was extremely helpful and gave us great recommendations for restaurants, clubs, shopping etc. When we return to SoBe we look forward to staying here again!

Great hotel close to everything that is good,very well run, also very green frendly but not over board.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not so much ..."
Recently stayed at Sense and was very disappointed. I paid a rate that would customarily be charged at a 5-star hotel and got very little in return. No mini bar (there were snacks); no robe; a chair (the one chair in the tiny room) which had ink all over the seat; bad lighting choices ... the carpeting in the hallways is dirty and frayed; the pool area […] is depressing. The one positive aspect I would like to note is the staff - uniformly friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Only problem we had was a rattling water pipe. I asked at the front desk and was told that it only rattles when the person in the next room uses the shower. He offered us ear plugs. It was a bit of an annoyance, but not a big deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, high thread count sheets, and fabulous shower. Knowledgeable concierge. No iron in the room but I am sure I could have asked for one but we only stayed one night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"DW - Kansas"
Very nice hotel with very few rooms which was an advantage for my wife and I because we did not want to feel crowded. Hotel is close to the beach, approximately 200 to 300 yards from the front door to the ocean. Only a few blocks from great dining and activities as well as a couple blocks from an (SBL) south beach local bus stop only 25 cents. The big […] draw back would be that there is no breakfast area and no vending machines but you are only a couple blocks away from a few places to buy essential items. You will pay allot more for a bottle of pop or water but it's still close by. Beds are like memory foam beds and are very comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Modern and comfortable, but not pretentious"
The hotel is in a great location--a block from the beach and just around the corner from great shopping on Collins Ave. A Walgreens (with a good liquor store attached) is just across the street. The hotel itself is well-kept and tastefully decorated and designed in modern minimalism. The mattresses are a sound sleep-inducing memory foam and the bedding […] is soft and of a high quality. The roof-top pool is small but pretty and has nice sitting areas. The staff is helpful and friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small rooms, but clean and very convenient"
The lobby is vacant now, and the staff minimal. The rooms are small, but clean, and modern. The staff is pleasant, but not eager. Its a reasonable place to go, but nothing to write home about.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My stay at the Sense..."
I enjoyed my stay at the Sense Hotel. My room was comfortable, quiet, and well furnished. I like the memory-foam bed, slept really well on it. Enjoyed the modern and clean furnishings of the room and bathroom. Really enjoyed the nicely done and chill rooftop space. Friendly and helpful hotel staff, Alex and Mernie at the front desk. Fantastic location, […] one small block away from the beach and also one block from all sorts of restaurants and stores, including a Walgreens. The hotel offers beach towels and chairs which is included in the daily hotel fee. All in all a very enjoyable stay. Recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent price - decent hotel"
The hotel price is what made us pick Sense, but you typically get what you pay for. It seems like the hotel wasn't completely finished or needed some repair, we couldn't tell. The hotel staff was nice. The rooms are kind of small but are decorated nicely. The beds were extremely comfortable. Not in the heart of South Beach, but only a couple blocks […] from the action! The rooftop pools was very pretty and relaxing. Don't self park...spend the extra couple dollars and valet. It's quite a hike to get your car from the garage. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sense Hotel- perfect location for weekend getaway"
We went to Sobe to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. This hotel was perfect for our needs. It was quiet, clean, and very classy, yet close enough to all the action to walk or take a short cab ride to any of the clubs, bars, or restaurants. It is also right across the street from the beach. The bed was very comfortable and the rooftop pool was nice […] although we didn't have time to use it. Everything looks like it's been recently updated. I read a lot of reviews online before I booked and Sense hotel definitely lived up to its good reviews. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location, location!"
Clean, efficient, no frills - but modern, comfortable, and upscale. Works well for the one night we needed it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was conveniently located a block away from all the south beach action. We loved our room especially the two balconies connected to the bathroom one that was, Roof top pool was a real nice addition to the stay. I would suggest this hotel to others. Staff was very friendly and informative!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Two night stay on South Beach"
I was on a girls trip to Orlando and decided to take a quick trip to South Beach for one night. The hotel was so nice and pleasant we decided to stay an additional night. This is a bouutique hotel, clean and comfortable. Nice bath, flat screen and firm mattress!! I would definitely stay there again. Oh...very short walk to the beach and restaurants […] . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is located w/in walking distance of restaraunts and stores. However, if you're wearing high heels, you'll probably need to catch a cab to popular night clubs. The good news is, the cab fare will probably only run you about 5 bucks. It is right across the street from the beach, which is great! The hotel even provided beach towels, chairs and […] umbrellas for free. The staff were all friendly and informative. The pool was great. The beds were comfy. I only wish they had refrigerators and microwaves in the rooms. I would definately stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Sense and Hotels.com made birthday wonderful!"
Staff were warn and inviting, provided numerous helpful tips for navigating the area and enjoying food, and the rooftop pool created the perfect intimate offbeach location for a couple or small group of friends! Can't wait for the in-house restaurant area to be set up.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what I expected"
Expectations are always tough when checking into a "boutique" hotel. My disappointment with the hotel was probably due to setting my expectations a little too high...here's a brief rundown: - Good location on South Beach if you're looking to be close to the party scene but not right in it (I actually wanted something quieter and prettier) - Front desk […] person at hotel was really friendly and helpful! Although it was a little difficult to find out where the front desk was, almost like walking into an empty lobby of an apartment building - Building itself was quite shoddy - thin walls, cracked floors, really dirty windows - Furniture in hotel room (not including bed) was cheaper than Ikea stuff - Bed was comfortable in itself but what was disturbing was how dirty the sheets, blankets and pillow cases were. I found hairs on the pillow cases and lots of stains on everything else. Not a peaceful night's sleep for me, but my far less OCD husband slept blissfully. - Nice products in the bathroom but the towels were cheap and rough, bathroom seemed dirty. - Roof top pool wasn't much to look at. Just dirty with a tiny glimpse of the ocean. Oh, and the worst, the creepy red lights in the hallway...it's the first thing you see when you get off the elevator to go to the room. It's just bizarre.

"Sense Hotel more than Sensible"
Can't go wrong with the location, the cost, the rooftop pool, the Tempur-Pedic beds, the rain shower - all for a really reasonable price! This is a gem and you can walk everywhere!! This hotel does not have a restaurant or bar though, that's leased out to another entity and while I was there, no food/drink were available. At the same time, you can […] walk out the hotel doors and find plenty of options! So, no room service but I would much rather have the perks they offer than in-room or in-hotel dining.

"Would definitely stay there again"
We stayed one night before driving to Key West. We were struck right away by the helpful and friendly staff - from helping us find a street parking space to recommending places to eat, the service was great. Our room was a good size and clean with a comfortable bed. Our room and the hotel lobby area had obviously been redone recently and looked nice, […] though the hallways were a little sketchy looking. The location was good, just south of the main strip and a short walk to the beach. The surrounding neighborhood seemed okay, though there was a lot of road work going on so it looked sort of rough. The pool area was clean and there was a nice sitting area on the roof. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider it again if we came back to the area.

"Gem on Ocean Drive"
Sense front desk staff were wonderful. Cheerful, helpful, just the right level of interaction. Absolutely great with recommendations and making bookings for trips and cabs. Just Perfect. Hotel is beautifully situated one and a half blocks before the craziness begins on Ocean Drive - so that you can walk across the road to the beach, stroll to shopping […] and dining and partying but far enough away to not be disturbed by the noise and madness. Simple basic hotel well maintained and light and airy. Breakfast would have been a nice touch however cafe on next corner sells best coffee ever! Definitely recommend.

"Great location, affordable modern boutique hotel"
Stayed here with some of my girlfriends and had a fabulous time. We weren't looking for a hotel that had a lot of frills, but we did want a nice clean modern hotel close to everything. Sense was perfect for our needs. There is no restaurant, bar, room service etc. but we didn't want any of that. We liked that the location was just south of 5th and […] ocean (close enough to the action without being in the middle of it). Molton Brown toiletries = Plus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice, very impressed!!!"
This was a very nice hotel. Small (I belive only 18 rooms) in an awesome location. Personnel was very helpful and friendly. I was so happy with the outcome, will return again.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our stay at the Sense Hotel. The room was very nice. The staff was very good. The location on South Beach was great. We were in the front of the hotel and didn't hear any noise from the street. We missed having a coffee shop or restaurant in the hotel,but there were plenty of choices right outside the hotel. The only problem we had was […] a party in the hallway around 2:30 or 3:00am We should've called down to the front desk but we didn't. They had a swimming pool on the roof. Not a full size but a lap pool. It was fine for me. I would recommend this hotel to other people. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
no room service, no barGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the location was great but the price was relatively high considering its a 3 star hotel. Otherwise you will have access to all the attraction from its location.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel being newer is a plus as in South Beach places can be pretty run down. The staff was wonderful. There were a few minor glitches (no washcloths or hand towels). The design is good. It isn't the Ritz Carlton but I had a decent stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this Hotel the night before our stay based on ratings and was glad I did. The hotel was very clean, comfortable and accommodating did I mention affordable as well.... it was close to the beach and down town. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again,.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good South Beach Hide-away"
I'm a local yet stay in Sobe hotels often. This hotel is new, modern, spacious, and affordable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Sense was a very nice hotel! It was clean, quiet and all of the staff was very accommodating! The neighborhood was very peaceful, across the street from the beach and blocks from the happenings! I would recommend this hotel to anyone! One note: be sure to avoid room 300 (directly under the swimming pool pump!), and bring plenty of money for parking […] ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
After reading many reviews, I booked my hotel. I was not disappointed. This hotel is a great find. By walking just a few short blocks, you are completely in the midst of all the South Beach action. But those few blocks do mean quiet at the end of the day and a peaceful night's sleep away from all the music. As a woman traveling alone, I felt very comfortable. Don't […] forget about the great pool on the roof! Not too many people took advantage of it. It's nice to take a dip in the pool after a long day at the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"hotel rooms fine BUT!"
Stayed for two nights. The hotel room and location is great, but having to pay extra for wifi doesn't go down well when you are staying in the hotel. Staff were lovely but trying to get just toast and coffee for breakfast was hopeless, the waitress said that they didn't do coffee with milk! Only black!! Ended up getting cappucinos. Yuk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fab hotel for couples and "grown-up" families"
Having had our long-established booking of a condo further north on Collins cancelled at the last minute because of renovations, I inhaled deeply, prepared to pay the extra and booked the Sense Beach for self, husband and two teenage daughters for our five nights in South Beach, Miami. What a great decision! The hotel had a clean, chic, "beach" feel […] (fellow Brits, think surfboards rather than buckets and spades). The rooms were stylish, the beds superbly comfortable, our view of Ocean Drive, and the ocean itself, everything we could have hoped for. Space was a bit limited but that was to be expected, with four fully-grown people sharing one (double deluxe) room. We loved the roof-top pool and "chilling" area - beautifully calm and restful. We also loved the restaurant - not cheap but some of the best food we have ever enjoyed and excellent service too. As for location, this could not have been better - just a couple of (walking) minutes south of the general melee, making it convenient for everything in South Beach but less traffic and street noise than two blocks north. We loved it and would return like a shot. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Miami stop over"
Great location on South Beach, next to the main strip but enough back to not be noisy when you do want to sleep. Nice decor, restaurant and pool area. Had a few problems with aircon and curtains but staff we're quick to help.Genuine Expedia guest review
Grate location, helpful staff actually helped us a lot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent for The Beach"
The hotel was let down by the standard of the restaurant. Breakfast took forever even though there were only two busy tables. One of our dinner dishes, salmon in white wine sauce, was tasteless. Coffee making facilities in the room would have been an asset.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close but not too close"
The location is great if you want the best of both worlds from Miami South Beach, it's far enough away from the noise and party aspects but still close enough to walk to the restaurants in the evening, head north for the cheaper ones, on Washington or south for a splurge. First impressions were great, a very boutique hotel with a nice laid back feel […] to it. We were checked in quickly and efficiently. Parking was offered but we'd already parked in the lot just behind the hotel for $30 since there was nowhere to park outside and check in. The room was really big and fresh with a small balcony we could see the sea from (not a full on sea view so beware if purchasing an upgraded room). Good quality shower with a medium flow (rain shower and hose) nice toiletries. Bit light on towels but enough for our 2 nights. Clean and comfortable with memory foam bed. We were below the pool but couldn't hear it. Pool are was great very relaxing with just a shallow pool but comfy loungers. Easy access across the road to the beach, the hotel will provide towels and chairs and the beach bag, nice touch. All in all it was pricey but so was everywhere else ($9 for a bottle of beer in the area!) I would stay here again,but not during spring break, it's everything it said it would be.
