I spent a long weekend at the Dorchester and loved every minute of it. Our room was nice and clean with a lot of character and the location was awesome. The suite offered more than enough room for my girlfriend and I. We especially liked the courtyard and bar area. The staff was very helpful and attentive. Can't wait to...

Good evening jhkruns, Thank you for providing us with feedback regarding your recent visit here at Dorchester. We are truly disappointed that your stay with us wasn't the 5 star time that we strive to provide! We do provide rooms that are larger in size, for those guests who want more space. Perhaps a larger room would have been better...

Went here because was a gift. Was a excellent stay. Close to everything and location is in middle of Miami beach strip. Hotel have everything and is comfortable. Kitchen, 2 beds, dining room and livingroom. Only downside is the pool need a reno very soon. Only for that is my 3.

The hotel looked great on Expedia page. Upon arrival was impressed by the lobby design. The rooms looked nice, but you could tell that they were remodeled to look nice and new, but in reality didn't do a good job of fixing the old problems, just covering them up. The doors on the closets had so many layers of paint...

We appreciate the time you took to share your honest feedback, busytraveler2014!! We have recently had several renovations here at Dorchester. The majority of our guests have great things to comment about regarding the mattresses. We understand that we cannot please everyone with the plushness of the mattress, but we do try. Our pool is indeed heated, but not heated...

I loved this hotel. We booked one night (a Friday) on trip advisor, and arrived to a super clean, cute hotel in South Beach. No crazy noise at night, a little noisy in the morning since we were near the lobby, but other than that, this place is perfection. The courtyard is gorgeous and the staff was fabulous. We felt...

Reviewed 17 December 2016 via mobile

Hotel is nice and quaint. Not too far from south beach. Rooms seemed clean. Parking is limited and quite expensive. The value of this hotel on a nightly basis should be around $100/ night. Overall, good place to stay and surrounded by some of the high end hotels in the same area.

I had a few days off and decided to go to Miami to relax and look around. The Dorchester is a great value for the price. The building is in great shape, decorated in a comfortable, retro beach style. The courtyard is beautifully landscaped with nice chairs and tables, candle-lit at night. Cute little bar with happy hour drinks for...
