Close to everything that's happening and reasonably priced. We love going to Haulover to the nude beach so it's only a 30 min drive. Super friendly people at the front desk Would stay here again volleyball across the street every morning

I bet you are picturing Art Deco - probably a building with shades of blue and vertical neon lights screaming COLONY, well open your eyes! You are here! I LOVED it! . Everything about it was perfect for me. I have to say that probably what made it perfect was interaction with Eddie prior to my visit where I made...

General manager, Eddie Nunez, is the man!! I called last minute to surprise my girlfriend and her friend with a bottle of Champagne for their arrival. Eddie went above and beyond to make this happy and was able to accomplish this lovely gesture for mel!! Couldn’t be happier and more pleased with what Eddie and Colony Hotel was able to...

For anyone interested in being in the absolute thick of things on South Beach, The Colony is ground-zero, while not being budget-breakingly priced. The cost of our clean and modern room was comparable to a mid-level Manhattan hotel. Though clearly built in an earlier era, The Colony is well-maintained and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the location...

Having visited South Beach 2 years ago, we decided to revisit for one night before our cruise. We thought the family would love the Art Deco, fancy cars and the ultra rich crowd. We were SO WRONG. The area is now an unruly street crowd, with a police presence we have never seen anywhere else in our travels. Drugs in...

Room 207. I am 47 and picky. My room was VERY quiet...I really couldn't believe it. Stayed elsewhere before in back rooms and had to deal with loudness. Not here! The room was SMALL, but all we needed. 2 doubles, tv, updated bathroom, and very clean. And the price was ridiculously cheap in comparison to the other area hotels. Loved...

The hotel has a very loud sound system in front and a noisy clientele making our stay fairly unbearable. Decidedly for a young crowd. We had a front room, the back might have been better. The Ocean Drive location by the beach and multiple restaurants is good, but the management must decide whether to run a hotel or a disco-bar.

Well, first of all, the hotel did meet our requirements. We stayed at the ocean front suite, very clean and looks like very recently updated. Considering the prime location, the price was good. As for noise... Don't stay on Ocean Drive if this is your concern, period. I've seen so many reviews that would penalize hotels for just being in...

The service at the hotel was great and the hotel is very very nice. We did our reservation thru Expedia and as soon as we got to the hotel the room was already assigned. The place is very clean and the ambiance is superb. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. As a matter of fact, we did another trip...

The manager Gaby was absolutely amazing and very personal with myself and all of my friends. She was very friendly! Giovanni is the best bartender I've met in Miami. He is very persistent and consistent with his customers. Gioseppi was our server our first night and made sure that he took care of myself and my friends all day! Overall...
