Can second a lot of what others have said: helpful front desk, cute decor, free water, breakfast beach chair and towels. Just an all around great hotel. I got the room through Priceline. Had to call to make sure I got a queen instead if two twins.

My husband and I stayed at the Pelican for 3 nights in September 2013. We had the room "Born in the stars and stripes", with its special interior. The room was not large (as is normal for Miami), but had a table and two chairs and a comfortable bed. It is true that the aircon can be noisy at night,...

I chose this hotel after reading the reviews and was really glad I did. It is in a great central position in the Art Deco area, and is a funky and friendly place to stay. It isn't luxurious, but had all the things that are important to me - a very comfy bed, good pillows, powerful shower, free bottles of...

We came to South Beach for two nights after visiting Key West for the previous four. The front desk was extremely polite and helpful, filling us in on the four main ammendities a lot of other reviews mentioned. The free happy hour is legit, almost full menu, lots of booze in the drinks and not a penny was charged. The...

Excellent location, supercool rooms, nice and friendly multicultural staff, excellent restaurant and the best espressos in Miami ! This is the only gourmet restaurant on Ocean drive and probably the best mojitos are served here. A touch of Italian and Diesel style in Southbeach !
