Roney Palace Resort: Beach resort up north Collins
An all-suite hotel quite far from the action. Still with plenty of beach and own pools, too. Quite expensive. Separate resort fee added to rates.

Hideaway Suites: Great South Beach suites
This place is tucked away in the middle of Collins Ave, i.e. in the middle of it all!! Across the road you can shop at Armani Exchange, around the corner you can drink yourself silly at Wet willies, you can stroll to the beach in 5 minutes, whatever your fancy you can get to it from here. These suites have it all, a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and dryer, bathtub and even a little dining table to eat your own cooked breakfast on. On top of it all they are incredibly cheap and will give discounts for stays of over a week.
There is no view and there is no pool. Since the Ocean is just around the corner though this shouldn't be an issue. This is a place to come to sleep when you've overloaded your senses on Ocean Drive ( also just around the corner).

Dtree Surfcomber So Beach: It has and miss class...
This was one of the most expensive hotels during this stay in Florida. We know that hotels in Miami Beach are mostly more expensive as they are worth, also parking can be expensive this hotel wasn't an exception to this. At the arrival we where greeted by both Valet parking and someone who wanted to help us with our baggage.
At the reception greeting was friendly and the key cards came with cookies. Then up to our room during reservation we asked for a room near the elevator...so out we came at the second floor and had to walk almost to the end of a long hallway....but there was another elevator giving pool and beach acces so that wish was granted.
The room itself was classy but small and the floor squeeked. When we turned on the light in the bathroom we learned to know the most loudest ventilator we ever had in any hotel room , cheap or expensive we decided not to switch on the light when using the bathroom the sound really was terrible.
Another thing....like to sleep long ? Don't go here, the curtains won't close they arent large enough to close, even the rail on which they are hanging doesn't go all the way.
If there's an emergency please be very careful exciting through the fire exit there is a step right after going through the door, i almost tripped when i wanted to take a picture from here...
The bed was a nice one, staff where friendly, the pool and poolside area where just great and the beach was adjacent to the pool area.
Breakfast was ok, but somewhat limited in choise. All in all the stay was ok but wasn't worth the money, i just don't understand why a hotel would have curtains that don't close.
What i also don't understand is that they have ventilators that noisy... we only stayed here for a day and noticed the fan late in the evening we didn't complain about it but if you stay here please check your fan before unpacking your staff maybe they have rooms with more silent fans.
Valet parking is the only parking they have and is a little under $19 per day.

Average rooms, average decor. They were just in the process of renovating some areas. Food at the restaurants wasn't that good and was quite expensive. The pool area was great. The location was good if you didn't want to be right in the middle of all the action (more relaxing) and only a $10 cab ride to South Beach (or $1.25 bus ride). I would have personally preferred to be further South closer to the action.
3.5 stars out of 5.

Hotels from a Bygone Era: Art Deco Hotels
The older hotels of South Beach have a distinct Art Deco design. The prices and quality of each vary but they're certainly beautiful to look at from the outside.

I recommend staying at either...
I recommend staying at either of these oceanfront resorts: the Edenroc Hotel or the Sheraton Bal Harbour. Both are a treat.
The discounted price is about $150 in the summer. It's more in the winter.
I'll fill this in later. Email me if you need information before I do.

Barcelona Studios: Home away from home!
Barcelona Studios is a family run guesthouse just minutes from the beach (4 blocks away) , Espanola Way and Lincoln Road. I highly recommend for it's value and location. My mother and I stayed there for a week and loved it! We stayed in the Double room and it is large and includes cable TV, a kitchenette (including fridge, microwave, oven, stove and dishes), kitchen table, CD player and DVD player. The rooms have recently been renovated and are quite lovely.
They have a back patio and it is nested in the middle of the Art Deco District and Espanola Way (Artistic Street with restaurants and Art gallery- a locals favourite). Great prices!
Single $414 weekly
Mid Size $492 weekly
Double $570 weekly (1 and 2 Double beds)
Large $894 weekly

Z Ocean Hotel: Another Miami gem
I stayed in Z Ocean Hotel in February 2011. It was a points award stay through Priority Club network. I would recommend this place to anyone, just far enough from the low blocks madness yet close enough to walk. Very nice Front Porch Cafe- my fav breakfast spot in SoBe- on the back end of the hotel. The hotels entrance is on Collins but you can walk out to Ocean Dr. I did not have enough dsobriety or time to check out the pool though, I really should have.
Location, location, location and very nice, updated rooms. and its on the priority club points network!

Hotel Indigo/Bel Aire Hotel - South Beach
The Bel Aire, soon to be Hotel Indigo, opened for New Years in December 2009. They opened too soon, as the hotel was a mess of construction, wires, boxes, rooms without hot water, and more problems. I'm sure the Indigo will be nice in a few months when they work out the bugs, but why risk your reputation for a few extra bucks?
We booked online and had no idea just how bad the hotel would be. When we arrived we parked along the side of the hotel. I walked in and saw just a construction zone and a computer on a card table, but no receptionist. After about 15 minutes of wandering around a lady showed up and started helping people check in, but in the meantime, many of the people who had previously checked in came by complaining of no hot water. About 45 minutes after arriving, we finally got to the front of the line and were given a room. Because of the numerous problems in other rooms, the receptionist actually walked us to the room so we could check it out. Since I had heard of the water problems, I let the hot water run for about 5 minutes before we accepted the room. Overall the room was pretty nice, but lacking a few basics such as an alarm clock, an iron, light bulbs, and working electrical outlets.
We ended up staying two nights at about $130 a night, and besides the construction, the hotel was OK. Our second day there, we got a note from the manager letting us know the hotel would soon be rebranded as the Hotel Indigo, the boutique brand of the Intercontinental Hotels family. One of their bragging rights is the hotel restaurant which is located in a house built in 1922.
The hotel has no parking, and not much of a drop off area due to all of the construction workers parking in the way. Nearby parking is about $20 a day in the city garages. The hotel has 135 guest rooms including 15 suites. There is also a nice outdoor pool along Washington Street in front of the hotel. Though they claim wi-fi is available, we couldn't get it to work.
