The Colony is a nice hotel, a little pricey and the rooms were a little small, but the location is perfect and the staff was GREAT! The Spanish gentleman that worked in the morning was awesome.... I think his name was Harvey, but he great and he always went out of his way to make sure that our stay at...

The Colony Hotel looked better on the outside then the inside. The valet service charged $24, but you can park your car on 16th street for $16. The most disgusting part were the uninvited guests. The first night we were there two large roaches crawled across the bed. We purchased a can of raid from the Walgreens up the street...

My Husband and I enjoy staying in boutique hotels and B&B's, so we were excited to see what this hotel would be like. The rooms were clean and had a great decor, comfortable bed, bathroom a little small but nice and staff was pleasant. We loved being part of the real art deco feel of this hotel.....you won't be dissapointed....

My wife and I stayed in the Colony in early September. We traveled from Europe to a few popular American destinations. South Beach was great and very interesting. We liked the hotel, clean, very nice rooms, friendly staff, oh and did I say good price!! One of our favorite spots yet.

I have travelled most of the world and stayed at hundreds of different hotels - some way cheaper than The Colony. But The Colony is BY FAR the worst hotel I have ever come across. I only booked it because of the location, and one would think that when you throw down 1000 usd for 4 nights, youd get some...

In my opinion this hotel alone exists due to location directly to Miami South Beach. Friendly staff. Very worn out hotel. High prices example a Corona beer is more than 8$. Maybe we picked the wrong hotel. (notice that all prices are +18% gratuity and tips is expected) This is a typically back packer hotel.

High end luxury...no. Convenient to the hot spots...yes. An okay place to lay my head...yes. Staying here was okay. Don't expect some super elegant high end boutique hotel. Its simply a place to lay down after partying. Staff is nice and friendly. Don't compare this to your last stay at a Hyatt, Marriott, or any other chain hotel. There are...

I stayed here with friends last week. We had called multiple times before the trip to get our rooms next to each other. Unfortunately, they could not fulfill this request even though we booked 4 months ahead of time. Two of the three rooms were on the same floor. I actually heard the front desk staff tell a family that...
