It was ok. The staff was very nice. They had breakfast but only orange juice, cranberry juice, danishes, fruit, ceral no meat. It was clean but its a old building. To keep the look of that area they cant remodel the buildings in that area. I'll give it a 5 out of 10

I really enjoyed staying at the Essex, the building is beautiful and well kept and the staff is wonderful. The hotel is in a great location and within walking distance to about anything you want to do or a short ride away. The rooms were well kept, but the only thing that I did not like was the fact that there is no microwave or mini fridge in the rooms. Other than that I would recommend my friends to stay at the Essex.

My wife and I have stayed at The Essex house the last two years, and were looking forward to this years trip again. The first few days were ok. The last two nights the accompanying room next to ours was being used by more than ten people, and the door was being knocked and slammed all night until 5am..... The last night we crashed early for an early flight home and the door slamming started and then loud music from the hallway where apparently a music video was being shot, (no lie...) they played the music over and over for take after take... This was most unsettling, and beyond unacceptable. We used to enjoy the Essex house, and always referred others, but we will never go back...

Excellent hotel stay. Close to local restaurants and beaches. All within walking distance. The entire Essex hotel staff was excellent, especially a gentlemen named Matt that worked the front desk at the hotel. The reason I mention Matt because one day my wife asked him if anyone ever told him he resembled the singer Post Malone. He was very pleased about her comment and from that day till we left he was known as "Post" not only by us but the hotel staff too. Everyone that worked at the hotel made you feel at home. You were greeted when you left and welcomed you when you returned. I could have not asked for a better group of dedicated hotel workers to share my first Christmas experience in South Beach Miami. Great job Essex House/Clevelander.

great hotel, very close to the beach and ocean drive. the price was ok, but they charge +$50 for a fee that was not informed when I booked the room. overall a great hotel to be close to the beach. I surely recommend the hotel. only make sure to know all the expenses before booking

Room average with great location

The staff is great and very helpful. Room was average with a leaking air conditioner that soaked the floor Room 209. I didn’t report problem just because it would be time consuming and I wanted to enjoy every moment of my short weekend trip. The beds and linens were changed but the floors were never vacuumed. Breakfast was sufficient. Best of all was the location, close to everything. I don’t think I would stay here again due to the many better options around. But an below average room didn’t stop our fun - we had an awesome trip.

Very disappointing

Pros: Location is good, bed was comfortable. That's it.
Cons: Actually having someone to greet you and help with luggage at all hours, not just randomly.
One of the loudest rooms I've ever stayed in. There was a constant thumping noise throughout the stay that came and went, not just at night but all hours. It would shake the bed. The a/c was VERY cold and loud. The carpet was a mess, bulging in some spots and actually coming up in others. No bathroom vent. The hotel staff was very young and unseasoned. Overall, the room felt like punishment.
