no dressers, loud noise at night until 4am without notice or any sort of accommodations, close to the beach and Lincoln road aka perfect location.

"Great Staff"
The Staff here is great and very helpful, every singe one we encountered. Location is great and the Hotel is an Icon of the Art Decor period but has been very modernized. Some drawbacks. No free coffee in the morning. They do offer a full coffee bar but at resort prices. With research there are many coffee shops around that offer a variety of coffees at better prices. Rooms are very modern but spartan. We had to ask for a chair for our room since there was no where else to sit but on the bed. We took the budget price and ended up with a room with a blocked window, actually good if you want to sleep in, but absolutely no view to the outside. We did not spend that much time in the room anyway. Shower was great, big and had the rain shower effect plus shower handle. Sink drain did not drain properly, a pet peeve of mine. Pool area is beautiful and has a bar area. The staff is a little slow at cleaning up and supplying the used towels. Would recommend it totally for a short weekend in Miami.

"Best Hotel Stay Ever!"
By far the best experience I've ever had at a hotel before. We were greeting by a group of people almost like they were expecting our arrival. Everyone was so kind and so welcoming! It felt like you were staying at a family members house. The rooms were great! We expected them to be smaller but they were actually perfect size! I will 100% stay at this hotel again. It may be a little pricier than others but well worth the extra money to stay somewhere you are treated so great! Can't wait for my next trip to south beach!

"Good location, bad management"
I thought I was going to have a nice stay at the Gale...the concierge texted me right after my plane touched down. I asked if I could check in early. He told me that my room was not yet available. I asked if he would notify me when it was ready and he confirmed that he would. No notification at all. When I eventually checked in I was told that there was a resort fee which covered wifi and other miscellaneous services. Guess what - wifi didn't work. I called the front desk and they said they would reset the router and call me back to confirm that it worked. Never called back. Oh, and forget cellular service if you use Verizon - I could not make or receive any calls from my room. Again I called the front desk, and the woman said, "Do you have Verizon?" I said yes. She said, "Yeah, Verizon service doesn't work here." That was the extent of her dealing with a pretty significant issue. And did I mention that my room didn't have a window? It actually had a window, but it was two inches away from a wall so absolutely no light came into the room. Because I checked in after it was dark, I thought I would give them the benefit of the doubt and see if there was any light in the morning. Nope, at 7am it was just as pitch dark as it was at 11pm. The hotel is well-situated in SB. And my experience could have been an exception, but the lack of follow-up and follow through with the guest when there is a problem indicates a huge problem with the management.

"Nice Surprise!"
I booked this hotel as it was close to the hotel at which I was attending a conference that was already all booked up. It was a beautiful deco hotel with a great restaurant and great service. The set up of the room was a bit awkward but I chalked this up to it being an older hotel, it certainly didn't affect my comfort. All the amenities were there and I felt like I had a nice trip away. I think it was much better than staying at the large hotel down the street. I would definitely stay there again!

Loved, loved, loved everything about this hotel except the limited closet space, no dresser and dead space in the bathroom that could be used as a vanity/drawers. Improving this would make it perfect! Awesome staff, location, amenities, night club on premises, rooftop pool and outdoor bar! Had a wonderful stay!

"It was ok for Miami beach"
I am sure the expectation persists that if you go to Miami beach you are going to spend a lot of money and I don't mind for a service .. They withhold 100.00 a night for possibles.... They also take out 15.00 a day for I don't know what.. They told me if I didn't use it it would be credited back ... Nope not the case.. 30.00 I guess you tip the hotel for being there.. The person at check out let me know I was wrong about getting my money back... Too sweet... "Not"!!!

"Love the Gale"
My boyfriend and I just stayed at the Gale Hotel for 4 nights and absolutely loved the Gale. The hotel has a great look and feel to it—very new and modern space that still gives you the fun feeling of old/classic Miami. The location was perfect—right in the center of all the action in South Beach. And even though we were in a room facing Collins Avenue we never heard a peep from outside which was great. The room we stayed in was very comfortable. A bit small to be honest but considering we didn't spend a ton of time in the room it was totally fine. The bathroom is updated with a shower that has a rainfall head (which was amazing). Again, a little small but beautiful and definitely functional. One of my favorite things about the hotel was the beach access. Guests walk one block up and access the beach right behind the Shelborne Hotel. There, guests of the Gale receive two lounge chairs (which were super comfortable) and two beach towels + lounge chair towel covers. If guests would like, they can rent an umbrella, cabana, etc and there is waiter service for food and drinks. So essentially we received all of the amenities that the big hotels offer but for a few hundred dollars less. And if you want to switch things up there is a pool on the roof of the hotel. Also, you HAVE to try the Italian restaurant, Dolce, on the ground floor. Believe it or not, the best meal we had in Miami. I would definitely recommend the Gale to my friends and for sure would stay there again.

"Great hotel, great location, excelent staff"
The hotel is really nice, conveinienty located with great, friendly staff. The rooms are nice, but small, similar to what you have in Europe. We found it a good size. Ony thing missing is something to hang your clothes on, drawers and more closet space for your clothes. I would get rid of the minibar, no need since there is a liquor store next door and I dont think a lot of people would use it. Could be used for clothes. Other thing we were unhappy about was that every day we got less ans less towels. First we did not get the medium size towels and the following day only the largest ones were left.

The location and hotel itself are amazing. Very quiet, very fancy, and impeccable cleanliness. The pool area is very nice and the hotel bar is awesome. The bartender was very friendly and same goes for the rest of the staff. I had one negative experience on Saturday night. My girlfriend and I forgot our keys in the room and the front counter person at that time was extremely rude... you can tell that she didn't like her job. She told my girlfriend that us forgetting the keys was no help at all and that it was a great inconvenience for her. Quite nasty. Not the service you expect from a $400/night hotel. Other than that disgruntled employee... I would totally go back because overall the hotel is a beauty!!!
