We truly enjoyed our stay at the Lord Balfour. A nice European atmosphere in an unmistakebly miami setting. Nice (small pool) great shower, great bed and courteous and relaxed staff. Breakfast is simple but good. We’ll be back!

Dear Jaime! Thank you for this wonderful review! It is true, the mural in the rooms at times create different emotions :) We always aim to provide a real value to our guests and it seems like we were able to do so in your case. I hope to see you again in near future!

Not the swankiest place in town but nice enough. The rooms were clean and well maintained for an older hotel and the location is great. Close to the beach and within walking distance of lots of bars and restaurants. The pool is quite small and is not exactly a sun seekers

I stayed at their Waldorf Hotel before but prefer this one mainly for its quieter location! Also, hotel has small pool and a gym. Great staff as always! It's a really great place to have a full rest after busy days . Will be back!

I would imagine they would hold luggage. We arrived early too but our room was available. We stayed the day prior to our cruise. They are so nice and accommodating there. If you are looking for breakfast or lunch, you can walk to the Big Pink. It was really good and a safe walk. Have fun.

How much is parking?
Parking through the hotel is $35 per day, this includes as many in and outs as you wish. Alternatively parking in a parking lot is $20 per 24 hours, but there are no in and outs. I used the hotel parking, which was no problem at all and would recommend if you are going to use your car on a daily basis. If you are just going to park your car up and not use it, a local parking lot may be a better idea. Hope this helps and have fun.

"ask for rooms away from the beach view if you want something quieter, and away from the elevator too"
"Both times back side corner rooms had been quiet."
"Definitely ask if there are rooms with "decent" sized bathrooms. I stand 5'7" and was hitting my elbows on the walls!"
"Double room with an ocean view"
"We overlooked Ocean Dr from a corner room (310). No problem with noise."
