Essex is a superb hotel. Liana, the front desk receptionist took good care of me for 3 days. I knew most of the staff by name and they were all so helpful. Luis the bartender made me a daily fresh pressed ginger lemon and hot water concoction for my terrible sore throat, the Chef at their Zonsi Japanese restaurant made...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 July 2016

The Essex House is located on Collins Avenue, right next to Ocean Drive. We had a suite with a jacuzzi which was over the top and very quite. If you like more people around go the partner hotel around the corner, the Cleveland hotel. Here, you'll find a rooftop par with a view across the ocean and the Ocean Drive....

First of all, the location is perfect. A few minutes walk to the beach. Even thou there is about 15 min walk to Lincoln road mall there is no worry since the walk is beautiful. The lobby and service at the hotel were great, we actually got upgraded due to birthday. Wifi was fast when the connection was good but...

I booked the hotel with not that many expectations, but in overall I liked it very much. Now there are goods and bads, like any other Hotel in Miami Beach they are old buildings, so the elevator was small only for 3 people, but plenty for a couple with luggage. The elevator was small but functional never a long wait,...

I spent a lot of time looking at hotel options and the Essex was a bargain! Most importantly, the customer service was excellent ahead of me even stopping in the door. I had to call with a special request and Sheena was beyond willing to help. Thank you again!

Perfect for a weekend get a way. Off the beach but in the middle of all the action. Reciprocal with The Clevelander was a big plus. Excellent room, nice happy hour and good breakfast. We were very happy to have chosen the Essex House.

The price it's not worth it. The staff are very friendly and helpful, but the rooms are old, ugly and with little amenities. It's unacceptable not to have a small freezer or something like that. For the price we payed, it's not worth it.

Great weekend stay with an incredibly nice staff! Our room was ready upon arrival (3:30pm) and they held our bags in a locked closet between checkout and our departing flight (about 7 hours). The complimentary breakfast is a traditional continental - nothing over the top, but not bad either. They do not mention until check-in that there have a daily...

Was here for one night for business at the Miami convention center. Very close and right by Lincoln road near shopping and lots of restaurants. The rooms were pretty small but staff was very friendly.
