About Hotel Ocean, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member, Miami Beach

Boutique hotel steps from beach and nightlife

Beach convenience
Hotel Ocean, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member places you in the heart of South Beach's Art Deco District, on popular Ocean Drive. The beach and Lummus Park are across the street, and you can find out more about the area at the Art Deco Welcome Center, a 4-minute walk away.

Walk to it all
The on-site restaurant, El Giardino, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The hotel puts you right on Ocean Drive, the closest drag to the beach. Highlights include watching passersby, exploring the street's sidewalk cafés, and, of course, hitting the neighborhood club scene.

Al fresco seaside dining
After starting the day off right with breakfast at the restaurant, you can pick up complimentary chairs and towels for your beach adventure after. The on-site bar offers a break from the sun and is an intimate setting to start your evening activities.

Free WiFi
Guests note the extra space in Hotel Ocean's 27 modern guestrooms. Hardwood floors and flat-screen cable TVs are nice touches, and mini-fridges offer free bottled water. Guests appreciate perks like free WiFi and dial-up, and free long distance and international calls. Rooms feature premium bedding, and most have a wet bar.

South Beach Gem
This hotel was in the perfect location! It was so cute and well kept. We could walk to anywhere from the hotel. If you don’t want to pay for valet, a parking garage is a 1/2 block away!

Very Good8.0
This location was phenomenal! So close to the beach, in the heart of the lively atmosphere. Depending on room location you can hear the happenings at the bar downstairs so keep that in mind for the feel of your own trip. We loved being part of the noise and that lifestyle but it may not be everyone’s cup of the good stuff :)

There are two buildings for the hotel. The building that’s renovated looks great unfortunately our hotel room was in the building that wasn’t renovated. Our room is right next to the elevator. Every morning we heard people in the halls, in the rooms next door and construction was going on outside every morning. The furniture look like it was from garage sale. Our bed was caved in to the center and headboard was broken. This place was a dump I will never stay there again.

Keyword: "Upgraded"
Make triple sure that you get a fully updated room in the South building, otherwise you'll get set up with one of their horribly dilapidated "standard" rooms in the North building that are not shown in pictures anywhere. Otherwise the bedding could have fewer hairs, but the location is fantastic. Honestly, spend a few extra bucks and stay at the Hotel Victor a few doors down.
