Loved our stay at this hotel. We were going to a concert at the Fillmore and celebrating our wedding anniversary as well. When Cassandra found out about our anniversary a complimentary bottle of wine was sent to our room. Lovely gesture. Yes rooms are small, but lovely. We had the room with the terrace and have to say it was...

Stayed in this hotel at the end of a 2 week tour of America. Hotel is absolutely lovely and the location is great - as other reviews say it's by the beach and the main shopping area. The only thing that left a bit of a sour taste was the lack of explanation of the resort fee/tax. We had already...

The Gale is firstly really well situated, you are about a three minute walk to the beach or a two minute walk in the other direction to Walgreens and a host of other shops. The hotel is quaint and felt really authentic, we really enjoyed our time here. Every member of staff we encountered was friendly and welcoming. The rooms...

Upon arriving at the Gale I was happy with the location (which was close to both the beach and to Lincoln Avenue). The room was quite small in size and the fittings on the shower were broken and hanging off the wall. The room was also quite dark - partly because od the vines obscuring part of the window and...

If you are visiting Miami, you have to treat yourself and stay at the Gale!! Amazing staff, beautiful scenery, clean, and do not get me started on the beds! I've been to Miami 6 times in the last 2 years and stayed 4 of the 6 at the Gale. I plan on returning in a couple months for my birthday!

Visited for two nights on our way down to the Keys. Beautiful hotel, the rooftop pool was a highlight. You need to pay the resort tax to use the pool, with this you also receive a couple of sun loungers at the beach club just down the road at another hotel.

This was my first time visiting Miami for pleasure and I will definitely be coming back. The Gale South Beach hotel is the main reason. First and foremost, the customer service was top notch.

The hotel has a very cool vibe, modern decoration and helpful staff. The pool area is great, perfect to relax and have some drinks after a day at the beach. Location is a big plus here, since it's close enough to the main restaurants and shops, but still in a more quiet area in South Beach!
