Mediocre Service

Posted Oct 19, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Improve cleaning service (several calls to replace towels etc...), Friendlier staff.
Location: Lots to do in south beach.
Noisy with construction outside, bad pillows, average cleaning and cranky front desk staff.

Love the Gale

Posted Oct 7, 2014
Pros: - The design - Dolce (the Italian restaurant) - The staff was very helpful and friendly - Great amenities (beach, pool, gym, etc) - No noise
Cons: To have a general shower available for guests in case they check out but have a late flight.
Location: Right in the heart of South Beach. Great restaurants, beaches, etc right at your doorstep.
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.

Nice hotel but noisy...

Posted Oct 6, 2014
Positive: Close to the beach and Ocean Drive as well as all other main entertainment venues. Good food and drinks in the restaurant and bar. Standard rooms are quite small but clean and well equipped. Negative: Our room on the 2nd floor seemed to be next to the hotel's aircon system and was therefore really noisy. On top of that we could here the music from the in-house club. Not the ideal place for a good night's sleep... However, this might be different on other floors.

Excellent hotel

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: Great atmosphere
Cons: More closet space A trash can in the room An ice bucket in the room
Location: 2 mins from the beach, shopping and restaurants
Hotel was awesome with super friendly and helpful staff. The beds were very comfortable. There was definitely a lack of closet or drawer space And I thought the $25 resort fee a rip off... For that they should have included an umbrella at the beach. The hotel is close to everywhere... Great restaurants and just 2 minutes walk from the beautiful beach Just remember South Beach is a VERY expensive place to vacation. If I ever return I would absolutely stay at The Gale
