Good hotel with clean room and near to beach

Posted Aug 27, 2015
We got 15 dollars discount with restaurant and free car visiting around beach, but the driver didn't arrived on time, so we didn't take it finally after more than one hour waiting!

Be sure you want a room above a night club!

Posted Aug 24, 2015
Pros: Decor, food
Cons: Full disclosure regarding the noise. Also, the staff were not outstanding.
The hotel is nice - attractive spaces, comfortable rooms, good food. But if you want to sleep, this may not be the hotel for you. There is a night club in the basement - from my room on the 2nd floor I felt like I was in the club.

Just not what I expected

Posted Aug 21, 2015
They charge for EVERY single thing. The rooms are so small. The food is terrible. The pool close at 8pm. Everything was uncomfortable. I should have went with the fountain bleu

Nice unique and conveniently located place.

Posted Aug 21, 2015
Pros: Very clean, comfortable. The pool on the roof was nice and I liked my little courtyard balcony.
Cons: There were some services that were a bit pricey but that seems to be the case all over Miami Beach.
Location: The beach was only a block away and that was nice. Lincoln Road Mall was also only a block away as well and I ate at a really good Cuban restaurant.
This was a nice hotel which I found to be very unique. I liked all of the old black and white photos from yesteryear Miami (1940s and 50s or so) that lined the hallways. Only a block from the beach and close to many bars, restaurants and shops to visit. The pool on the roof was nice.

Hi Brett, thank you for the wonderful review shared with our Expedia community. We appreciate it. The Gale South Beach has been recognized by designers and world travelers for its unique design and historical preservation. Many of the photos throughout are actual family members that own the property. Next time be sure to visit BOTH rooftop pools - we recently unveiled our annex building ~KASKADE SUITES. Every detail is refined, ample living space, stunning marble baths, tucked into a secret oasis with a very spa like setting. Visit soon!

Very nice!

Posted Aug 3, 2015
Pros: The beach was about one block away! The hotel provided 2 chairs and 2 towels. We were within walking distance to stores, restaurants, and bars.
Location: Nearby is the beach, Lincoln Road Mall, stores, restaurants, and bars.
Overall, everything was great! We enjoyed our stay at The Gale. The staff was very informative and friendly. The rooms were very nice, clean, and comfortable. The restaurant had a great yummy menu!

Great Hotel with perfect location

Posted Jul 15, 2015
I go to Miami once a year and have stayed at various hotels in Miami Beach and South Beach. The Gale is very welcoming and comfortable. I love the decor and the restaurant was delicious. We really enjoyed Happy Hour at the Dolce Bar. Melissa our bartender was so hospitable. We were three ladies staying in their signature 2 queen bed room and it was small yet efficient for us (we are all family so we didn't mind the semi-close quarters). The accommodations were clean and the staff eager to assist with your needs. The location is stellar to dining, shopping and the beach. They also have a shuttle service to nearby points of interest. I will be a regular at the Gale going forward!

Hip hotel close to the beach.

Posted Jul 11, 2015
Loved the location. It provided access to the beach with two chairs and towels. $15 credit per day to use at their bar or restaurant. It even has a gym though tiny. Pool on the reroof was cool. Staff were great. Rooms are small and bathroom was very tiny but functional. Steep valet at $35 a day. Plus resort fees and all kind of taxes but that is the nature of the beast being in South Beach. The hotel provided free golf card for pick up and drop off but not quick and not always available. We used it once to go to dinner. They have a bar with live music and a club in the basement. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Hello Paul, Thank you for being our guest! Clearly you visit South Florida often and thank you for sharing this awesome feedback regarding local taxes and the extras like our $25 resort fee (wi-fi, gym access, shuttle service, beach access, $15 F&B credit). Parking is very limited and can be costly. Uber or Taxi from the airport and let us drive you around and we are right in the middle of everything. Come back soon!

Special Hotel close to beach and Lincoln road.

Posted Jul 9, 2015
Great place with a very special flair. Nothing is left to chance, even the details seem perfect. What a difference to the mega hotels around. Very nice and helpful staff. The food in the downstairs Italian restaurant is delicious. It is worth every dollar!

Thank you for your kind feedback and 5 stars! We focus on the details, amenities, location, value in the daily resort fee (wi-fi, beach club, shuttle service, food & drink credit, printing services, gym access, etc) We are cozy, 2 new buildings, with big resort amenities, security and service!! We are the preferred choice to so many international guests.
