This is our second time that we are staying at this hotel and it's become better and better. Fantastic boutique hotel, friendly staff with personal service let's you feel like at paradise . Great location in the heart of Ocean Drive. This is our favorite hotel in South Beach.

Location was great. We were there for 5 nights on a honeymoon. We bought the suite. The suite was very small and extremely over priced. The staff was friendly and helpful, but even if the price that we paid was cut in half, I would not go back. Granted we were there during spring break, when the rates are highest,...

Congratulations on your nuptials and thank you for having chosen the Pelican Hotel for your honeymoon. March is quite electrifying in South Beach as your dates not only fell during Spring Break but Ultra Music Festival and Winter Conference! Every one of the 29 rooms is completely different from the other. All have been daringly and wittily designed by the...

Dear Tripadvisor and patrons, We stayed at the Pelican in May and had a great experience! The staff was great, a good value, and the hotel a cool vibe! I remember a particular staff member who said he was from Argentina (Carlos) who was exceptional and he spent a lot of time explaining some of the history of the hotel...

I have heard excellent things about Miami Beach so I booked a trip for my girlfriend and I this past week. Before we left I was concerned because it had been nothing but rain the whole last week. Sure enough we arrived in Miami around 11am Thursday to a monsoon but we did not care we were finally on vacation....

Me and a few friends stayed here during the period of the big miami heat parade. Its right in the middle of all the action on ocean drive and is walking distance to most of the places you want to go. Its opposite the beach and there's a workout section for pull-ups and dips right in front of the hotel....

My brother and i stayed at the Pelican. it was right off the beach needless to say great location. however, the staff really made it a great place to stay. the rooms were nice a bit small but cool. Each room was themed. that was cool to but the staff really made the place shine.

Lets list the hard facts that made The Pelican the BEST choice for our lodging while in Miami: *FREE ALCOHOLIC HAPPY HOUR FROM 4-6pm. Yes. That's AS MANY DRINKS that you would like from these hours as a hotel guest. Just a heads up, once you START getting their yummy mojitos, you won't be able to stop. (Ask for them...

There are so many perks about this hotel that I don't know where to begin! Before I do, I must point out to you that my stay here almost didn't happen because the mother of my travel companion fell very ill shortly before our trip. Since we had purchased my stay on Hotwire, without trip insurance, there wasn't a lot...

The two of us friends shared a twin room. It was small but adequate for space. The bathroom was big but sink, mirror, everything was in the room which made getting ready tricky. Also, bathroom not ventilated so made getting ready much more sticky! The AC in the room was nice and cold. The fridge and water was a nice...
