Beach Access: No
Avg. Room Prices: $$$
Located on Ocean Drive across the street from Miami Beach, this Iconic Postcard Hotel is located in the heart of South Beach. The Colony Hotel offers 50 clean rooms with surprisingly modern furnishings for a very reasonable price. Ocean View Suites facing Miami Beach offer a spectacular view. The staff at this hotel gets mixed reviews with many people commenting they seem disinterested. There is a restaurant on site however the prices are astronomical, even by South Beach standards. The hotel’s furnishings were unexpectedly modern and updated, and blend nicely with the Latin American decor and tropical feel of the hotel. However, while the location is stellar, it does have it’s drawbacks. Being located in the middle of the party scene it’s a noisy spot, and it stays noisy well into the night. The hotel has an extremely active bar, the drinks are huge fishbowl-sized glasses and the hotel’s bartenders do a great job. Recommended mostly for short stays, the Colony is ideal for people who won’t mind walking across the street to get to the beach, and have come to South Beach to stay at a Party Hotel. This hotel is not pet friendly, and it’s definitely not reccomended for families. It’s a surprisngly good value choice considering it’s Central Location. If you can’t get a room here consider the Majestic, Pelican, or Congress as alternatives.
