A great boutique hotel in the heart of South Beach. If you are hoping to not hear any noise - you shouldn't stay in South Beach. My room was cute, clean and spacious. Frankie greeted me at the front desk every morning and was so helpful. The housekeeping staff was thorough and very quick. I loved the themed rooms. My...

I had stayed at "another hotel down the street" upon arriving in South Beach for spring break. I'm not a college student and miscalculated how crazy the week would be. Checking into that one was no good, we'll just say. Then I went to Key West for 3 days and came back to South Beach for my last night in...

I visited during the spring break season and I did not expect such a great service. The food was pretty cheap for the area and everything tasted incredible. I would definitely recommend it to others. Can't wait to visit again.

What a fun place to stay. Loved how all the rooms were decorated in a quirky unique style. Breakfast was fantastic each morning! Beach was easy to get to and having beach chairs there was great. And the location - we sat on the patio for breakfasts and again at night for cocktails just people watching - and the park...

We read the reviews before we went. Some were not great, saying rooms were not furnished well, issues with 20% off in the restaurant, etc. I get it. It's a boutique hotel with funky rooms. Each one is decorated differently and it's not posh by any means. HOWEVER, it's really kinda cool. The bar staff was awesome and the location...

Simply the best Sea Food Paella I have ever tasted. Deborah (the manager) was awesome, she literally stop me as I passed the restaurant. Deborah ' s pleasent smile, and the aroma comming from the seafood being prepared inside. Well let's just say the combination was difficult to resist. Nevertheless no regrets at all. The services was expertly coordinated by...

This is a great place to stay in South Beach, The staff at the hotel and in the restaurant were very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. The location is in the heart of the South Beach strip so it was easy to walk and enjoy the food and music. You are also right across the street from the beach and for...

Miami Beach in February is a crazy time, especially during boat show season. Hotels are booked, slammed with people and service is typically not as good as one would expect. The Pelican Hotel I must say provides great service, I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Somehow the staff remember my name as I am walking through the hotel... this is...

I've been to many different hotels and Pelican Hotel was by far the best service I've received. The staff are friendly, helpful and get the job done!
