Location excellent & extremely clean!

Posted Feb 9, 2016
Never been to Miami but this hotel was close to beach, shopping & restraunts. Room was spacious for 3 of us, beds were comfortable and grounds were lush with greenery to remove you from the concrete jungle of Miami. No musty smell, view wasn't nice due to our room facing a hotel being renovated next door. About a mile from night clubs on Ocean Drive but only $6 for Über. Would stay here again!

Thank you for sharing your honest feedback! We are glad that you enjoyed the complimentary chairs and umbrella at the beach. This is always a nice touch! :) I wish that we were aware of the noise that the A/C made while you were in house. We would have sent maintenance up to take a look at it. If they could resolve the noise, we would have moved you to another room. We hope that this does not steer you away from staying with us again in the future!

For convenience

Posted Feb 2, 2016
Pros: convenience
This was a business trip, and this hotel is very convenient for the convention center. It is not one of those trendy hotels with all the top facilities, but this is also reflected in the price. Like all things in life you get what you pay for, and if you are looking for a clean hotel with friendly staff, and it is just a place to sleep, while you go out, then this is the hotel for you.

Great place for the price

Posted Jan 26, 2016
Everything was actually great! Room was clean we liked how the hotel had a bar and a pool and breakfast spot. Only down side to our experience was our room didn't have any hot water. When telling the lady at the front that we didn't have any hot water to take showers she simply just responded ok but the problem never got fixed .

Hello there yorlys, Thank you for sharing your honest feedback with us! Our guests opinion means the world to us!! It sounds like you enjoyed the time you spent here at Dorchester, despite not having hot water. This issue was resolved by the City of Miami Beach as it was an issue that was out of our control. We hope that you would stay with us again in the future!

Very friendly service and staff but for the money the hotel needs to be renovated and they need to stop nickel and dime-ing people. The coffee is out a lot, breakfast is not free and too much money for what u get and parking is too expensive, $33 to park and non refundable $15 reservation fee, so $48.00 total. Little by little these things take away from the overall experience.

Nice hotel close to the beach, large pool.

Posted Jan 24, 2016
Pros: Overall a good value. helpful staff, nice entry patio & pool.
Cons: Older, smallish bathrooms. Bar tends to play loud music, but will turn off when requested
Overall a good value. helpful staff, nice entry patio & pool. In a very good location for the downtown mall, art museum, etc but not too close.

Hôtel très accueillant et personnel à votre écoute

Posted Jan 24, 2016
Pros: Bien situé et près de la plage
Cons: l insonorité
Location: A quelques pas du centre de tout des boutiques des restos et du bus pour aller dans Miami la ville pour deux dollars
Du personnel de la réception aux femmes de ménage,ou du petit déjeuner ou de l agence pour les excursions ,c'est parfait c'est la deuxième fois due nous y séjournons cette année ,et j espère pas la dernière..Un seul et important problème si vous avez un voisin du dessus de votre chambre ,cela peut être l enfer.Pour cela il faut appeler et le gardien de nuit règle en général le problème.

Not level of 3 stars hotel

Posted Jan 18, 2016
Pros: The position
Cons: The bathroom
Location: Shopping and beach
The hotel is an old building that was modernized, but the bathroom was very bad because is really small and the shower door cover only half space so every time you take a shower, there is water everywhere.

Good Evening and thank you for sharing your feedback! We are an Art Deco building, so our structure is a bit different. I will definitely make sure to share your comments regarding the shower and the water, to the General Manager. If we were aware that you were inconvenienced while you were in house, we would have moved you to another room!
