As a rule I don't like boutique hotels as I find "boutique" is usually a euphemism for "closet size rooms". Not at the Edgewater. Loved the updated decor, and the layout is such that as you enter the room the bathroom is very privately located; there is a "kitchenette" area with a counter, sink, microwave, storage cupboards and a counter...

This was a a more reasonably priced hotel for the area and was right across the park from the beach. It is NOT one of the big fancy resorts which was mostly a good thing. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, really willing to accommodate all our requests. They have a marginal breakfast but a sweet "happy hour" from...

Dear lesliefk, Even though we have the extreme makeover signs up most of the work so far has been in the rooms, this is why you did not see nay construction. The facade of the hotel is the original and is protected so unfortunately we cannot take down the wall you saw while on the rooftop to create a better...

Just checked out yesterday. Stayed at 3 hotels in Miami Beach over a period of a week. The Edgewater was by far the best in all categories. I was not sure about the location at first but this turned out to be a huge asset. Great rooms, excellent view and access to beach, rooms are huge and staff was wonderful....

Perfect location, gorgeous suite, helpful staff, excellent price. Lovely breakfast on the roof terrace. There was work being done on the hotel while we were there but this did not impact our stay at all. There are some wonderful restaurants nearby too, the staff were very helpful recommending these when we asked.

Great facility. We had the 2 bedroom suite and I would certainly book this again. 4 people total. 2 in one bedroom, 1 in the other and a fold out couch in living room area. Very large rooms with a balcony and 2 bathrooms. Staff was wonderful.

My wife and I had a great time at this hotel. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Location was excellent. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. I would have liked more liquid creme for my morning coffee.

Came in for the Miami Boat Show, so prices were very inflated for all hotels in South Beach. Usually stay at neighboring Betsy Hotel (sold out) which led us to Edgewater.
