Review of Essex Beach House
This is my review of Essex Beach House
Check in was very good and front desk very friendly. Was checked in by a nice cuban girl who even said my last name correctly. Was able to get a room for 830am which was really convenient. Front area of hotel was really nice and comfy and outside patio was truly amazing. Nice little pool nearby and location to hotel was great. Collins St on one side and ocean drive just a 1 minute walk. Beach was just 2 minute walk and another main hotel and bar Cleveland--re was just up the way not far at all. So it was a quite good place to stay. My room was nice had a nice view of Collins st and nice AC that was ice cold. Big screen television was here and big comfy bed.
No fridge in room but not a big deal really.
Hotel does provide no breakfast just coffee, but no need to sit there for food when u are walking distance to some amazing food just steps away. It is called “get out and explore” .
I would happy to recommend this hotel to others of anyone. From singles, families , couples etc. Really worth it for anyone and safe area as well.
Best part you are so close to the beach. So look forward to staying here again when I get back to Miami Beach

Decent hotel in South Beach Dec 11, 2008
The Essex House is a pretty decent hotel. Their price is good considering the surrounding hotel prices and is only 1 block off Ocean Boulevard. They do not have any type of breakfast (continental or otherwise) so you must go out to eat. If you have not been to South Beach, then you need to understand that everything there is inflated in terms of cost. Bring LOTS of cash or your credit card with the highest available credit. The Essex is not a 5-Star hotel in my opinion, but the staff is phenominal, they'll do anything for you, and eager to please. Which, in my book, goes a LONG ways!! My hats off to the staff of the Essex. The rooms are what you would expect for being close to the beach and in the path of hurricanes. The rooms smell a bit musty. The wireless access in the rooms is great. This is a HUGE bonus for us business travelers.

Tucked into the center of the famous Art Deco district is the Essex House.
