Colony Hotel "Great location, Great Hotel"
Date: July 11, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Moore, OK
I stayed at the Colony Hotel in a recently renovated room. It was fantastic, the staff was pleasant and informative. The room had a wonderful modern look with wood floors, platform beds and a large LCD television. The hotels location is perfect, it allows one to get anywhere within a short walk. I will stay there again and would highly recommend it to others.

Colony Hotel "Thank god for Expedia"

Date: June 1, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Manchester-England
We stayed at the Colony in May 2005 for a long weekend after geting Married in Florida the day before. The Colony was booked through Expedia, and the Money taken from my account 8 months earlier, which was fine, although somwhat surprising when we checked in that the staff had no booking for us and the hotel was full ??? Thank god that we got expedia on the phone and they sorted it out and made sure that our stay was pleasent !! The Colony is a must if you are looking for location without the comfort. Small rooms and even smaller bathrooms !! A bit noisey, but hey who cares when you are on Honeymoon !! Worth a look!

Colony Hotel "A treat for any european."

Date: May 26, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Amsterdam, Holland
Defenitely worthwhile spending a night or 2. I missed my flight to Madrid at Miami and decided to stay at the all famous Ocean Blvd. The rooms are not big but I liked the art deco a lot, cool lamps, clocks, cocktail shaker, plants, ceiling fan, low bed very comfortable, big plasma on the wall in front of the bed. Check it out.

Colony Hotel "This place sucked!"

Date: April 26, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Nashville, TN
We were to stay at this hotel from April 17 - 24 2005, but checked in for only 2 hours then transferred to another hotel immeadiatly. First, the hotel rooms were extremely small with the beds practicly on the floor with no base. Second, the bathroom was disgusting with the bathtub having rust stains on it and the toilet would not flush correctly! Third, the guy at the front desk advised me they did not have extra bath towels that they only had beach towels that were paper thin. Fourth, the guy at the front desk was not even hospitable acting as if we were bothering him. WORD TO THE WISE do not stay at this hotel if you want to enjoy your stay in south beach otherwise you will regret it!

Colony Hotel "Hell in Miami"

Date: March 2, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, CT
This was THE WORST hotel I've ever stayed at!!!! First they gave us a room that was already occupied. Then the next had dirty towels and the toilet paper was dripping wet. When I told the front desk they never came to the room but just handed me a clean towel and paper at the front desk and they wouldn't give me another room. When going to bed I found a PUBIC hair under my pillow!!!! I couldn't believe it!! To top it off they wanted 5$ in checkout for beach towels I didn't even use and clean up!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was shocked!!

Colony Hotel "Not bad at all"

Date: February 1, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Dallas, TX
We stayed there in January 2005 during the Orange Bowl. They are renovating the rooms, but ours hadn't been renovated yet. Our room was nothing fancy (although it had a DVD player), and a little noisy, but you can't beat the location. If you're getting a renovated room, I'd recommend the hotel.

Colony Hotel "An enjoyable experience at the Colony Hotel"

Date: January 27, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Atlanta, GA
Last year, I stayed at the Colony Hotel and it was a good experience but nothing extraordinary, This year I returned to the hotel and I was impressed by the improvements. The new decor on the rooms are fabulous, the plasmas TV make the rooms so sofisticate without loosing the art deco style.
The service meet my expectations and made me feel like I was in my own house. My stayed at the Hotel was so fun and enjoyable that I will returned by the end of the year and I will spread the word about the COLONY HOTEL AND THEIR STAFF.

Colony Hotel "C-mon--it's a classic"

Date: August 8, 2004
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, San Diego, CA
First, let's not forget where we are--the epicenter of South Beach, and the Colony is just about the most identifiable spot on Collins. Rooms are small and not particularly somewhere you would want to spend a lot of time. And DON'T FORGET THE EARPLUGS; there really is some action on the street. Great for a night or two, but you wouldn't really want to take up residence.

Colony Hotel "OK for the price and location"
Date: June 16, 2004
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Tierra Verde, FL
The rooms are old and very small. The drinks in the bar are overpriced. Given the fact that it is in the heart of South Beach, if you are only going to sleep there and don't care to spend big money, it is suitable. Otherwise, consider a more comfortable hotel for a little bit more money.
