Insider tips

Built in 1939, the National Hotel is an example of classic Art Deco design marked by clean lines, curved walls and retro-chic furnishings.

Set at the corner of 16th Street and Collins Avenue, in the heart of South Beach (and next to the Delano Hotel), the National features landscaped grounds, direct access to the beach, and a 205-foot-long Infinity Pool – hailed by Condé Nast Traveler as “the stretch limo of hotel pools”

Guests enjoy an array of personal services, including strawberry lemonade at check-in and welcome kits with local information in each room. A beach concierge provides chairs, towels, drinks, and other services, and massages and beauty treatments can be reserved through the concierge. When it's time to leave, a special "Jet Set" to-go menu offers tasty alternatives to airline meals.

Valet parking is available, but you can save a few dollars and park at the nearby 13 Street and Collins Avenue garage for a flat rate of $8 per day.

Complimentary Internet access (Cable connections) is available
in the guest rooms.

National Hotel
"stay away"
Date: December 19, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, New York City, NY
I produced large trade shows for over ten years and have stayed in many hotels. This is my first written complaint concerning a hotel, which I hope will help to save future attendees from the problems I endured at Art Basel (an otherwise world class and very well run event to which I will certainly return).

Anyone booking rooms overlooking Collins avenue at the National Hotel should be told about the road noise. I found it impossible to sleep without earplugs (because of the road noise and the cheap single-pane windows). I prefer to not have to sleep with earplugs in my ears (especially when I am paying $450 per night. When I asked, I was told that no other rooms were available at any price.

In addition, I found the following problems with the National Hotel:

(1) It was not possible to (or at least no one working at the hotelcould figure out how to) put the hallway or main room lights on without the overhead fan also turning on (which was not only unpleasant but also caused a loud buzzing noise). I opted to stay in relative darkness.

(2) It took three calls to housekeeping and two calls to the manager to have my down comforter changed to a non-down one. I am allergic to down and the allergic reaction I sustained has since progressed into an infection.

(3) Most of the staff I encountered (including at the front desk) did not speak enough English to understand the problems I was encountering. For example, after requesting a non-down comforter, I was brought three feather filled comforters to which I was allergic. I hope this stemmed from their apparent inability to understand English, as opposed to having been done on purpose. The persons in question worked at the front desk.

(4) The plaster in the bathroom was cracked and peeling (room 603).

(5) An important package (clearly and correctly labeled) that I left with the concierge to be picked up at the concierge vanished. It was later found after the recipient had tried in vain and I was forced to speak to the manager on duty.
