The place is in a great location and the concierge was great, for the $ this was a great hotel. If you are looking for a topnotch hotel this is not it. The hotel is definitely not more than a 3 Star at best and you are paying for the location. The start of the stay was interesting, one of...

Great atmosphere and fantastic welcome in the late evening. Ordinary room and room standards. Have and will not try the restaurant because we going to try some other place recommended at TripAdvisor. Parking is 30$ if you use the valor service just outside the door. Otherwise there is a parking garage around the corner for 3$ / hours.

The location and the price are great. The rooms are a little small, however it's an older building. This should be expected. The issue I had was the roaches in the hotel!! This ruined the whole experience for me.

We had a trip planned for the first week of October but because of Hurricane Matthew, our flights were canceled. We contacted the website where we booked this hotel and told us that this property was in an "evacuate zone" and that no one was available at either of their properties. To our surprise they are still charging us for...

This is a crappy hotel that costs as much as a nicer hotel, but what you're paying for is the blaring insanity of the street it's on. The location is certainly 'nice', if you will, and you luckily can't hear what's going on in the streets until god knows what hour; other than that, it's a crappy hotel that costs...

Hello we wanted to acknowledge your comments and opinion, however calling the property CRAPPY and without an explanation of what occurred nor contacting me to address your concerns and find a solution is not the proper way in which reviews should be based.

We enjoyed our one night pre-cruise stay at The Colony Hotel. The Hotel staff was friendly and informative. It was very clean. The location is in the middle of South Beach! Everything was within walking distance.
