          The suite we stayed in was very nice and well decorated. Kitchen was well equipped with large refridgerator, microwave, and stove top. It was about 1 block to the beach; 3 blocks to Lincoln Ave; 5 blocks to the start of Ocean Blvd- close proximity! 1 dollar drinks at happy hour each day from 7 to 8 pm

          Fantastico!!!! The location it's great, just walking distance to wherever u wanna go. The staff very nice and helpful. We got to Miami at 6.00 am and even though we were supposed to check in till later they accomodated us as soon as it was a room avaliable. Overall it was a really good experience to stay there. I totally will choose the Dorchester again.

          We stayed at two different suites. They were very comfortable and clean. (no bed bugs!) The beds were quite comfy. Best was that we had a lot of space! We stayed at the suite with 4 adults and we had plenty of space. the kitchen was also great. it had a large refridgerator. Next time i'm in Miami... i'm staying in a suite again!

          The waiter (William) at the sister hotel Marseille, where we had lunch, was super rude! Rest of the staff were friendly.

          Location is good, especially if you're up to partying.

          They play loud music right up to 1 or 2 in the morning, and the rooms are not well soundproofed, which means that light sleepers would find it difficult to sleep.

          Excellent location. Minutes from the beach and Lincoln Road. Helpful that their sister hotel has a pool that gets the sun all day, because the dorchester pool gets the shade all day. Internet speed was good

          The daily parking charge of $25 is expensive, but seeing as there aren't loads of places to leave a car, it's less hassle to park there than spend ages looking elsewhere. We had a few ants in our room through the week, which wasn't a big problem for us as we didn't use the minibar fridge that much. But, if someone was to use it to store food or drinks, the ants could easily get into the fridge. It can also get pretty noisy at night, but again, this wasn't a big problem for us, as this is to be expected for being so close to the bars, pubs and clubs. It was a small price to pay for being so close to the main attractions.

          Good hotel for a short visit to Miami. Rooms have a modern feel to them and are spacecious enough for 2 people. Location is good, 3 minute walk to the beach, 2 minute walk to their sister hotel which has a pool closer to the sea which you can use aswel. Hotel has a pool but nothing special. Towel and beachchair service was a nice feature. In walking distance of Ocean Dr, Lincoln Dr, shops and restaurants. Hotel has a bar which offers ''free drinks'' from 7-8pm. Drinks are not free but one dollar (for servicing and tax). This is the only busy time at the bar. We made good use of it before going out.

          Beds where not very comfy, didn't sleep well on them. In my opinion house cleaning was slacking a bit. Room looks modern but quality is low. TV didn't have clear picture, water in the sink didn't run away smooth and toilet got stuck 2 times. Hotel also has a bar which plays music untill 04.00 in the morning which kept us up our last night, if you have a room at the back of the hotel you wont be bothered by the music. Drinks are super expensive that's why hardly anyone is at the bar except for happy hour. With all that said, I would stay at this hotel again.

          The room ws nice and clean, loved the clean towels everyday and the white sheets! Lobby was nice, good that you can borrow the computer for free :) beach was nice and so was the staff.

          The bathroom was not so nice, you can't use the tub -only for showering. the construction site next door started the crazy noice at 7.30-7.45 every day no eceptions (not even sundays or thanks giving)

          From the moment we arrived, the hotel had a great vibe. It's very well maintained and very nicely decorated (there was a recent renovation). We reserved a regular room and got upgraded to a suite! The beach is very close and so is Lincoln road mall. Great location. Very clean and modern rooms. The beds are so comfortable! Other than that it was a fantastic stay and a great value! I would definitely stay there again.

          The only thing I have to comment on would be that the walls are a little thin and you can hear people if they are loud in the next room, but even that is not unbearable.

          Convenient location. Correct service. Fair price-quality relation.

          For two consecutive nights, a group of youngsters was allowed in or around the swimming pool between 2.30 am and 5.30 am. Our room was located next to the pool. When I came down to the reception at 3.30 am the second morning, I was told by the night porteress that the pool was accessible 24/24 and 7/7, although she agreed to take action. Her affirmation was categorically denied by the management the next morning, and the incident did't occur again. When wanting to contact the reception the second night, I discovered that the in-room telephone was not connected.

          We really loved staying at the suites. It is in a wonderful location and the beds are very comfy. Also, the suite is very spatious.

          The swimmingpool wasn't very nice. Lots of musquitos there. Fortunately you can swim in the pool of the sister hotel Marseilles. That pool is much nicer.
