                  • The location was beautiful and the rates were reasonable for South Beach. The congress hotel was great and the bathroom was amazing ; the decoration of the room very nice. Some shopping stores were within the vicinity as well, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the bed, pillows and comforter was beyond comfortable.

                    Reception area was dirty small and the elevator was not fixed for the entire week of our stay. The price was not the same as listed on booked and the balcony was facing a tiny backyard. The towels were stained and tattered, the breakfast provided was very poor, the extra obligatory fee on 12.50 per person to use the pool was a dissapointment.

                  • The location is fine, beach restaurants is a good thing and the staff at the hotel are really friendly and always ready to help. The lights in the main building are blue, kind of weird, rooms are clean and modern, a small pool is available on the terrace. Continental breakfast is terrible.

                    The place look old and light from the Ocean Drive road made sleeping difficult. Service is extremely poor, the shower rods are really rusted and the elevators are very slow.

                  • Great location in Ocean Drive, s central for South Beach and by far, this hotel was beyond not liking, very disappointing. The staff were brilliant, the bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable, joel the pool bartender was also awesome.

                    Phone was available in room.

                    The pool was the small, the area was tight, and overall just dirty.

                  • The location is great and fabulous stay at The Strand Ocean Drive. The room is very big as well as a bathroom and the rooftop pool wasn't really even worth mentioning.

                    Worst hotel in miami and south Beach is expensive to eat and drink.

                  • The location is amazing and the hotel is in front of the great beach and park. The rooms are hardly cleaned and just a heads up the drinks are $25. The pool is wonderful.

                    Staff were not very friendly, the bathtub was dirty and had hair inside and the shower curtain was stained.

                  • The location is excellent, the hotel is really great and the Front Office Manager, Elroy Ramirez , has an amazing staff. Room and bathroom is nice, the pool is an outdoor bathtub. Music is the best.

                    Our blinds remained closed the entire stay and loungers available on the beach. The sofa bed was also dirty.

                  • Beautiful views from rooftop pool, complimentary beach chair/ and very nice decor in the room. The staff are very rude and all the employees are very kind and courtious. The beds are extremely comfy and big, drinks are good.

                    Thats expensive for the hotel and the front desk. The furniture was stained as well.

                  • Good location opposite the beach and hotel staff friendly. Nice art deco building, great price and erika ta the reception were extremely courteous. My room was really big and the beds were comfortable and the wireless was free.

                    Pool area was small and furniture was grossly stained, also the tub shower was awful.

                  • Across the street a great beach and excellent location. Trendy decor and comfortable, overall nice service. Room was large and clean.

                    Hotel staff had a bad attitude reacting to a problem.

                  • Great value in the heart of South Beach, other nice areas and the best thing about the hotel is the location.

                    The room was filthy.

                  • The best of South Beach and super view. Good value for money, staff were great and the room itself was very modern.

                    Dishonest hotel that loves to scam people.
