I was really excited to get there and then very disappointed with the hotel. It's great on a postcard and pics looked good - but I really got upset over the fact that hotel halls says no smoking, but guest can smoke in their rooms??? I don't smoke and left there after 2 nights reeeeeking of stale cigarettes. The beds...

The beautiful exterior, the reasonable price and fantastic location may tempt you to stay at the Colony. If you don't mind a small basic room, go ahead and give into the temptation! I stayed in room 107 with two double beds and was quite pleased. My room was very clean and I noticed the staff got rid of the sand...

The Colony is one of the oldest hotels in Miami and enjoys iconic signage, however it's just not up to date enough. The service was just ok... and it's not nice being harangued to eat in your hotel every time you return or leave, or be goaded into drinking a Lake Nicaragua-sized mojito. The hairdryer was awful, and the shower...

The Colony hotel is the perfect location in South Beach...right in the heart of it all. But the hotel is not very nice at all. Our room was very old and dirty. I wore my flip flops the entire time I was walking around the room and especially in the shower! The maids didn't clean our room once in the...

I stayed at the Colony for a week in March. After reading previous reviews on this website, I was unsure as to what to expect, but overall, I had an enjoyable stay here. As others have mentioned, this hotel is in the perfect South Beach location. However, being from the UK, I was unaware that Spring Break had begun, which...

If you want perfection, stay on north Miami Beach, and give up the charm of this hotel. We stayed at the Colony post-cruise, and per the recommendation of a friend who used to live and work in South Beach. The hotel is old, and the upgrades/reconstruction is designed to appear minimalist, I think. There isn't a closet or wardrobe, and...

Front desk person was very pleasant and accomodating, letting me check in before my friend who reserved the hotel arrived. The room was clean - floors, sheets, bathroom. It was smaller than I'm used...
