Great location, but that's it.Posted Mar 19, 2014
Hotel is right in the middle of the South Beach action on Ocean Drive, only seconds from the pounding beat and the restaurants and bars, and across the street from the beach. Good thing is they have heavy doors that block the sound, so you can actually sleep. Valet parking is $25 a day, but at least that means you can park since it's at a premium in this area. There are no amenities such as a pool or spa, but remember you're paying for the location, and that's about it. My "king bed" was two singles pushed together, with a mattress that was only slightly thicker than a laptop computer, and lumpy to boot. The window was blacked out so that people in the alley next to it couldn't see in. There were no drawers, so I never bothered to unpack; I just put my suitcase on a chair and took out what was needed. This would not be a place for a romantic honeymoon; instead, it's just a place to leave your stuff when you head out to South Beach.

Good Choice - Good Value - Great LocationPosted Jan 30, 2014
There are so many hotels to choose from on south beach that it's difficult to choose. I was initially put off this hotel by the scores on most websites including Expedia but after searching SO many times always came back to this one and I'm pleased to say that it was a good choice. I booked a standard king room, it was absolutely fine. Clean, comfortable, functional and value for money. Bed - huge king bed and comfy. Bit squeaky but no sleepless nights! Bathroom - was a shower room, nice design, good size, shower cubicle great but shower pressure average. No complaints though always hot water, wait a few mins for it to come through though, it will!! Safe, minibar/fridge, desk, good TV, great A/C and ceiling fan, table and a couple of chairs. Small wardrobe but fine for a few nights. Everything you actually need to be honest! Common areas are clean and all in good condition. Room cleaning - fine, no issues, we always folded our towels and placed on the edge of the shower, were replaced with clean every day. Reception - nice and friendly. Helpful on hotel info and got us a good cab back to the airport. Could do with a proper concierge to advise on information outside of the hotel but there's always the internet. Wifi - great signal and fast and FREE!! Fab!! Bar and restaurant is run by a separate company who were always good. Good value for money and great service!!

Can be recomendedPosted Jan 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
Waldorf Towers has a great location on Ocean Drive. I have previous stayed at other hotels on Ocean Drive and South Beach and this has been the best so far. It is not a 5 star hotel, but it is clean, has friendly and helpful staff, soft bed, good internet connection and a safe that fits your laptop. These are maybe small things, but I do travel a lot around the world and I do appreciate this in a hotel. Next time I go to Miami I try to book a room here again.

Romantic getawayPosted Dec 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
This well maintained Art Deco hotel is in the heart of all that South Beach is, art, food, beach and clubs. The amenities are all up to date and tastefully modern. The staff always friendly and very helpful. The room clean and airy. Super convenient for shopping, biking, casual beachside strolls and people watching. Sit back and enjoy a beachside volley ball game or a relaxing chaise on the beach.

GREAT HOTEL! MORE STARS NEEDED!!Posted Dec 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel from the moment we walked in, to the moment we left felt like they knew us for years. the friendly smiles and customer support from Ledy at the front desk, to the deco rooms was the perfect stay on South Beach. The location to the beach was perfect, and night life was steps away. I cannot wait to go back to South Beach and stay at this hotel again. Very clean rooms and I would give it a big thumbs up!

excellent hotel for the price and locationPosted Dec 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
The room was very clean. Great location right on ocean drive. Everything felt very fresh and modern. If a cheap rate is available this is a great choice.
