The Standard, Miami
Ranked #10 of 212 Hotels in Miami Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 July 2011

The location of the hotel is great close to the Miami Beach area.

We both understand that not every hotel can be a new one and years at times are visible in some areas. As much as we were both positively surprised on the simple but nice way how new life was place into the operation with some very unique ideas.

Sound proving in the bedrooms did not work out and you can hear everything that does happen around and on top of you. This in our opinion was the biggest down side of us staying in this property.

The pool, outdoor restaurant & bar, the spa and other areas are well polished up, prices are in line with pricing in generally in Miami, F&B did do a great job even so the place was packed each and every day we spend here. The quality of Food and drinks was good to perfect, service good and as friendly as can be.

For us the room rate was a little out of line keeping the room product in mind 350 usd is a good price if sound proving would be done well, the way it is now we feel it is over priced for what you get during night while trying to sleep. The room product is the issue.

Overall however a nice place to be, try to have an open mind and keep the kids at home.

This review is for the standard members only club benefits rather than the hotel itself. I was invited by a friend during the weekend and I have to say that the place was very nice and enjoyable. Please keep on mind that thisnhotels is mostly for adults and not suited for kids.. There is not music and the environment is a spa kind of felling. Also, there is a cover of $40.00 to use the pool, the extension chairs and the bar and this doesn't include any drinks or food, is just to use the amenities. Prices for the drinks are very expensive. My friend and I had 4 pitchers or mojitos, 3 appetizers and our bill was $495.00 again it's very expensive. Worth it? Maybe... I am sure they keep the prices very high to filter the kind of people that go there, which I can say that the majority if not all of them were in it's 30's and very good looking. Great place to be single - kinda of gayish, but fun.

Me and a friend travelled to Miami for a week holiday and I think we made a great choice with the standard, for those of you who know the standard in L.A well to be honest this place is not as flash or fancy but it scrubs up pretty well. It not right on the beach or even near but you can walk, it doesnt talk long at all, rooms fairly small but adequite. pool area is nice, staff were great! overall I would reccommend this hotel as long as you are ok with the location......if you wanna stay right on ocean drive....dont stay here! its got a very funky vibe!

This was a pit stop to the Keys for a special gathering of family for a special birthday! As I entered the lobby the calm happened immediatley. The front desk was very friendly and expedited my arrival very quick. The grounds were incredible, I was escorted to my room and then it was a wow!!! The room was more than I expected after reading the reviews, I guess eveyone expected the glitz of Miami, this is a SPA, NOT A CLUB IN MIAMI. The room was very serene,clean and fully stocked as any spa hotels are anywhere in the US. After going back on the reviews, I still can't understand how anyone can complain about the service, especially the staff, friendly and very informative about the location and hotel. The staff is exceptional!! I would highly recommend The Standard to all my friends and business associates. Looking forward to my next trip to Miami and The Standard for sure.

I just returned from a 4 night 5 day stay at the Standard and now I don't ever want to stay anywhere else in Miami ever again. The hotel/spa is located on the bay side of Miami Beach and away from the strip (yet not too far if you want to go). The rooms are either on the ground floor or the second and you never feel like you are at some giant, commercial resort. the pool and deck/yard area are quiet with a lot of little nooks to chill out in, plus the restaurant has a nice, healthy menu. the pool itself is my new favorite and with it being on the bay side, sunsets are incredible. the spa has everything you need and is open to all guests. i did not take advantage of any of the treatments (this time). the place is entirely low key, quiet, and generally affordable. the staff leave you alone and if you need something, they bring it right to you with a smile. highly recommended.
