Flamboyant!

Posted Aug 5, 2014
Hotel is right on ocean drive and has a few nice perks. Ie.. 2 drinks each day during happy hour, lounge chairs for beach and free breakfast excluding drinks. Although why doesn't Pelican give you coffee or tea with the meal? 2 coffees every morning was $7. Room was nice, clean and comfortable. Staff could be a bit friendlier but overall I liked it and would stay again.

Wonderful Stay in South Beach

Posted Jul 25, 2014
Pros: Clean and trendy rooms. Wonderful Staff. Great Restaurant.
Location: South Beach Miami in the center of everything. Near the Beach, near Collins Ave. shopping.
We loved this hotel. I have stayed in the South Beach area many times and this was my best experience. The staff is great. The rooms are really cool. The hotel restaurant is awesome and serves a free breakfast as well as free happy hour cocktails. There isn't a pool but it's right at the Beach. A experience.

Very nice Stays for an couple of days

Posted Jul 18, 2014
Pros: This Hotel is in the center of South-Beach Nightlife. The anterior give an view in every corner.
Location: - Thriller Speedboat Tout at Bayside - Miami Beach at all ;-) - .... you will find out :-)
Direct at the Ocean Dr. south beach is this very nice Hotel in Art-Deco style. The rooms are small but clean and tall enough for the stay at overnight. The A/C is medium loud and the anterior partly really nostalgic. At all, an beautiful stay in the center of Nightlife. ;-)

Good hotel and great staff

Posted Jul 17, 2014
Pros: Great location, right by the beach; friendly and helpful staff; good food; good drinks; themed rooms are fun
Cons: The bed was a bit uncomfortable and there was a day where the water heater wasn't working.
Location: The hotel is across the street from the beach. There are many restaurants and bars along Ocean Drive. Wet Willie's was a half-block away.

First Miami Beach Vacation

Posted Jul 12, 2014
Enjoyed my first visit with my sister. Hotel provides lounge chairs and towels which was a plus! Breakfast was great (ad most importantly free); your choices are from a menu and is filling depending on what you get. Happy Hour everday from 4pm-6pm. No hidden fees. Rooms are small but we spent the days out and about so it wasn't bad.

Loved the location!

Posted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: Location to beach and restaurants
Cons: more storage in rooms for clothing
Location: location is great! Close to beach and shops and dining!
Great hotel if you want that "Miami South Beach feel". Each room in the Pelican is decorated differently which gave a cool vibe. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean but small and bed is very hard. Happy hour was from 4-6 with hotel guest getting 4 free drinks and a complimentary breakfast in the morning which was great. Valet for car was $30 a day as there is no parking. Fun place and would recommend!

Posted Jun 28, 2014
They offer more than any of the other hotels. Breakfast menu was awesome, have never seen that before. They set up lounge chairs on the beach for you with thick comfy mats on them, wow. Best Hotel and right on Ocean Drive. Also 2 free cocktails per person a night. Loved every minute. Thanks Pelican

Posted Jun 24, 2014
I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff is super friendly and very accomedating. All guest receive free breakfast and two free drinks during happy hour. The hotel is well kept and super unique. No room looks like and the hotel is in the heart of ocean drive. Great location, great staff, clean rooms, and plenty of alcohol! :-)

Very Fun and Great Location!

Posted Jun 24, 2014
Pros: clean and fun rooms
Cons: faster elevator
Location: in the heart of Miami
We were in Miami for a convention and decided to extend our stay. The hotel we were staying at didn't have rooms available so we ended up at The Pelican. We were happy we did. We stayed in an Executive Suite and had a view of Ocean Dr. overlooking the beach. Great time! I won't say much and leave the fun to those deciding to stay here. Highly recommend.
