The location is fabulous, the rooms are attractive, the restaurant's good. But the front desk staff, while friendly, just made one goof after another. For instance, when we suddenly couldn't get the room keys to work after they had been fine, a visit to the front desk revealed that the hotel had made the keys inoperative because they thought another...

My boyfriend stayed for two nights at the Cardozo on a week-long whirlwind tour through south Florida. We loved the small boutique-y feel and the location. When we arrived, we were blown away by the incense in the lobby, but otherwise, got good service. Our room was a standard room, a queen bed, no frills. We were a tiny bit... More

Cool, convenient and welcoming we found the Cardozo when we were in South Beach to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. Loved the Art Deco building and elegant rooms. We had also stayed at the Blue Moon on Collins for 4 nights before going to the Keys. The Cardozo is better all round.

My wife and I stayed three nights. We were here over Memorial Day weekend and wrote the hotel a letter. We were told we wouldn't experience the same problems on our return trip, which was over Labor Day weekend. Wrong! First, we had to wait 20-plus minutes to check in as the sole check-in clerk could not locate a reservation... More

My family stayed here for four nights. We were in one of the corner rooms that has two bathrooms, a living room with a couch, a bedroom, and a large window looking out onto the beach. Every part of the stay was worth the price. I have to say it was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in in... More

Employees were friendly and efficient. Room was clean and nicely decorated with plenty of space for luggage and to move comfortably around. A reading lamp by the bed would have been nice. Outstanding location; directly across the street from a wonderful beach, close to restaurants and nightlife but far enough away from the noise and crowds below 10th street. Breakfast... More
