The hotel room was tiny. Limited bathroom privacy. Poorly cleaned. However it is directly across from the beach and there are club and food options on site. So it depends on what you care to spend your money on. Amenities or Room

Dont believe the hype !!!

We was welcomed by a guy at front desk that was to busy to talk to us. We noticed everyone got a welcome drink and was greeted when they walked in. I had to keep asking him about the hotel instead of him telling me things as simple as where's the elevator & that I have to use the room key to get to my floor. I also asked him do I have to pay for anything now he told me everything was paid for through expedia .Now its the clevelanders I'm expecting a decent size room you know with walking space. The room was extremely small . No fridge, no microwave, the bathroom & closet is a hole in the wall . The bathroom had a sliding door, the bottom of the tub had mold as if it wasn't clean in months. No lamps, no chair or sofa. Now I didn't complain because it was sold out & I figured hey we just came here to party but the lack of hospitality was visible . The room service was no better one night we ordered two orders of crab legs and some warm pretzels an hour later when it was brought to the room there was hair on the pretzels nobody came to retrieve it or bring another order. The only pool is the public pool in front of the hotel where there is always a party, that nobody goes in because it doesn't look clean and looks about 3 feet (wouldn't know they don't have the foot labeled), meanwhile they have two rooftops. At 6am the morning I was checking out I went for a walk. On the way out I asked the guy at the front desk for a late checkout because my flight does not leave until 7. He s

Unique hotel but know what you're getting into

Pros: The energy is great and the staff is super
Cons: room design is poor, sparse and just odd. How about a desk or table or a lamp or something..
Location: the location is the epicenter of SOBE. Great food choices and right across from the beach.
This review has two goals. The 1st is about our experience and the 2nd is just a heads up. We read the reviews and fully understood going in that this was not a nice quiet asleep by 11 experience. We didn't really think through that we were going in the middle of spring break madness which multiplied everything. Our fault, not the hotel. We had a 5th floor ocean side room. Specifically did that side because we read that the pool/night club goes late so avoid that side. It does go until 5am every night, not even kidding! However on Fri/Sat night there's a 6th floor club that goes til 3. Right.above.our.heads. Front desk did warn us on check in and offered to move us next door to the Essex if we wanted but we chose to stay. As for the hotel itself, it's a 3 star facility but in fairness the staff was all 5 star. Every single person we encountered was on their game. It would have been easy to slack off at such an intense time of the year but they didn't. The wristband is magic it seems. There seems to be a washcloth shortage as we had to beg them to give us some. The worst/weirdest part is the bathroom set up. Really stupid partially see through sliding doors. We expected small rooms but they are extremely sparse as well. No privacy at any time in these rooms if you get my drift. PS, avoid SOBE during spring break, it's out of control and it's clear the locals and the businesses are not happy about it. (and no, I'm not a grumpy old fart)

From the moment I walked in and checked out the staff was absolutely phenomenal. The atmosphere was great, music kept you dancing, and if you just wanted to relax you didnt hear anything from your room. Very enjoyable.

Best Birthday

Pros: Everything!
Location: Short walk to the beach, many shops and restaurants within walking distance.
I chose the Clevelander as my birthday hotel, and I would stay there again in a heartbeat. The concierge was so helpful and nice, the room was small, but clean, the drinks were perfect and the outside pool/bar/dance area were so much fun.

Great customer service!

I went here for business and the staff and hotel was excellent!  The room was very clean and the location was great to go out at night.  I was very impressed with how the staff helped with anything and everything from the moment you pull up to the time you drive away.  It is definitely more of a party location but still great for a business trip, especially if you have never been to Miami Beach!
