Stayed here for a long weekend vacation. Chose the hotel based on location and reputation as a SoBe landmark. However, this was literally the worst hotel experience we have ever had. The rooms were filthy. The floors were so dirty we couldn't walk on them without shoes. Your feet or socks are literally stained black in a matter of minutes....

We stayed in this hotel twice on my trip to the USA from Australia. Yes it is an older style hotel but it was clean and very comfortable. We loved it's unique elevator and it's fabulous exterior. The location was awesome, right where all the action was but not too noisy. The staff were wonderful, very friendly and made you...

I liked the "vibe" of the hotel as soon as I got out of the cab! This historic hotel is located right in the "heart" of South Beach. Across the street from the beach (literally). Perfect location for people watching and a nice short walk to all the "popular" attractions: Wet Willies and Nikki's Beach. The rooms are a good...

Had reserved a suite a month in advance. Was told a day before travel it was not ready due to construction delay. When arrived room was empty but rented out the next day. Was lied to again by manager about room they took my deposit on a month ago. Avoid this hotel.

Would never stay at this hotel again. Booked 2 suites for a week & half 2 months prior to stay. They took a deposit but the night before check in they called to say renovations on one suite were not finished & a standard room was all they had to offer. Upon arrival there were people who were staying in...

Stayed here about 3 times within the past couple years for my annual trip to Miami. For the location and price to stay here it did the job. Its not the best hotel I have stayed in, but it served its purpose many times. I think this year we will be looking into picking a new location for the first...

My friends and I came to miami for Ultra and WMC. We had a great time at the concerts and the hotel was perfect. Right by the beach and there was tons of restaurants and bars to go to. The rooms were very nice and at a good price. It was a fun trip and we met some great people...

Based on the recommendations on Trip Advisor I wasn't expecting much from the Colony. We only stayed one night...we took a cruise out of Miami the next day. This hotel is in a great location and the front desk staff was very helpful. Our room was small....two double beds, which I didn't like. The beds had plastic sheets, which I...

Me and 3 other girlfriends stayed at the Colony for 6 nights. I would have to say, if you and your friends are high maintenance, don't cram 4 people into one of these rooms. We had one small bathroom that had one full length mirror on the door, and one mirror above the sink. There was NO counter space to...
