One of the numerous three-storey Art Deco hotels in South Beach, the Essex House has a great location and a spacious lobby & porch, which make the hotel welcoming. My room was of average size, not huge but not cramped either. A very comfortable bed and pillows. The bathroom was dated and was in need of a renovation. They are...

stayed for 2 nights before a cruise. Arrived with a group that all stayed at another hotel with a much lesser rating. Arrived around 2. All of their rooms were ready and they got a free upgrade while our room at the Essex wasn't ready until we got back at 4. They took my number and said they'd call when...

Complimentary breakfast, happy hour (free drinks), walking distance from ocean drive, quiet at night and over all clean room! Staff are nice too. Valet parking was $42/ night. My experience was good. Highly recommended.

We stayed for three nights and were very impressed with the extremely lovely welcome from the girl on reception when we arrived. There was a slight hiccup with our booking which was very professionally resolved. Our room was pleasant and they were nice enough to make sure that we were well away from the sister hotel which was a noisy...

The Essex is a nice old hotel in South Beach. I wanted to be close to the Clevelander but without the noise. This sister hotel was the answer. Making the reservation was satisfactory. There was no clear place to leave my Car when I arrived. We arrived early and the room was not ready. We were told we would receive...

I stayed at this hotel as my first stop in america. This hotel is so central and only 1 block away from south beach itself. The hotel is very art deco and we received a free breakfast which is good for nothing. We also received 2 free drinks and snacks at the Japanese restaurant connected to the bar. Free towels...

When we first walked in there was an old smell. The view from the room was a street view with people walking by the windows...we could not open our windows the entire time. There was little lighting inside the room (only a few lamps here and there) without the use of natural light it felt like a dark cave. The...

We stayed in Essex House. What made our stay really great at the hotel was really friendly and professional staff. Especially Liana and Rafeal, thank you so much to make our stay great. The weak point we experienced was long time waiting for valet parking. We checkout and we waited one hour and twenty minutes to get our car.

Overall a great value. Not particularly luxurious, but there are some nice touches in the King Suites such as a Jacuzzi tub, refrigerator, and sitting area. I was impressed with the air tight double paned windows which made my stay a peaceful one as I faced noisy Collins Ave. My only minor complaint is a few mosquitos that somehow made...
