We've made it to Miami! We finished our last day in New York by catching the subway across to Brooklyn to see a brewery, which ended up being closed! Didn't matter though there was a pub nearby that sold the Brooklyn Brewery stuff which was pretty good! We jumped onto google to try and find the best Burger and Nachos NYC had to offer! (What better way to spend our last afternoon ;) )The nacho joint just so happened to have half priced cocktails ...
... Th lettering in the buildings were almost identical. Almost all the Art Deco buildings are now cafes or restaurants downstairs and hotels and apartments upstairs. We had a bit of a look around the shops and then headed to the supermarket for some food as we had discovered at Miami was pretty pricey, especially in the part of town we were staying at, south beach. We decided we would cook a few meals so purchased a few supplies but were annoyed when ...
... last time we were in the down market hostel section. The hotel's rooms almost cover the first floor of a city block over the top of all the shops. Miami Beach is very busy and crowded, and parking is almost non-existent, but it's lovely and warm wandering around in the evening. The final of the college football is in town on Monday. It's between Alabama and Notre Dame, and there are thousands of football tragics ...
... nice room, which was an upgrade from the dorm beds, and set off to the roof-top pool for a quick swim. After my swim I headed off to the beach for another quick dip, some sun and a stroll along the beach. The stroll along the beach very quickly turned into a game of 'spot the wierdo's', spotting all shapes and sizes dressed in anything from a skimpy bikini to a speedo or just a Calvin Klein jock strap. After my entertaining walk along the beach I went in search ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Beach Plaza Hotel Miami Beach
I booked a room at this hotel because the reviews for a hotel up the block were horrible! I am a frequent visitor to South Beach, and was looking for a hotel closer to downtown and the beach. The best deal I've had since the Roney Palace had an "under construction sale"!
I thought this hotel was great. The rooms are nice and clean and the service is wonderful.
You could do way Worse than the BPH!
Attention wives, girlfriends, random secret rendezvous women -- fear not the scary reviews of the BPH. As best I can tell, the negative observations of the hotel were unfounded.
While the room is not palatial, it is comfortable enough for a 3-4 night stay. The high ceiling made it seem fairly roomy, the decor was pleasant, the bed was firm, the air conditioning worked well, and the bathroom was reasonably modern. The only legitimate complaint is that the water temperature was a bit erratic. The staff was quite helpful and they do try hard. The location is very convenient to the beach, local dining/drinking establishments and shopping at Lincoln Rd Mall.
If you have modest expectations about your stay, you will no doubt walk away quite pleased.
My mother and I stayed at this hotel through a vacation package and were immediately disappointed! The pictures online are NOTHING compared to this hole! The sheets were filthy, there was a huge brown stain on the ceiling, the tile was moldy, carpet SUPER dirty (I walked around in my shoes), and the shower left me feeling dirtier than when I stepped in. WE could hear the maids in the next room every morning and the noise outside was HORRIBLY loud! Please DO NOT STAY HERE! I was im Miami looking at modeling agencies, and this place just made me feel ucky and dirty. It was the longest 3 nights ever.
Perfect Place to stay
Wow! What a great place. From the minute we walked in the door we were given great service! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The hotel has been renovated so everything is really clean and beautiful. The hotel has a garden area for guests which is private and quiet. The location is also great. It's close enough to everything but far enough that you are not bothered by the noise. We would Definitely return to this hotel on our next trip to South Beach!
Not too bad
I stayed at this hotel in November, yes my room was pretty shabb BUT the price was pretty good. Also the hotel was undergoing a renovation while I was there, perhaps it will improve.
I have stayed at the Beach Plaza about 6 or 7 times. It is in the Heart of South Beach, a major plus. You can stay here for about $80 bucks a night in season, another major plus. That is where it ends. You do not want to bring your girlfriend or wife to this place because it is filthy and the front desk is not at all helpful or professional. If you are on a budget and with your guy buddies this is a great place to stay for cheap and not have to drive anywhere. You are a block from the beach and all that South Beach has to offer. I love the fact that you can get a $200. flight from Boston-Miami during Spring Break, and split a room with your pal for $40. each a night. The money you save you can spend on booze and food. Just remember do not bring your girlfriend or wife here, they will be miserable. So while the Hotel and staff are terrible, it does offer a really cheap price in season to stay in the heart of the South Beach action. I saw a person gave this place a five star rating. That has to be a mistake. Do not go here thinking this is even a 2 star, you will be sadly mistaken. That ranking is totally bogus. Remember, great location, cheap rates in season, filthy rooms and hotel, rude uninterested staff.
Hidden Gem of a Hotel!
Down in Miami Beach is this cool hotel - great prices compared to the neighboring resorts, but just as clean and comfortable. Very friendly staff, and right across the street from an excellent restaurant. This is a place I will return to!
Good location, but...
This hotel has a good location, but not much else
going for it. They could not find our resevrations
despite repeated advance calls and confirmations!
Finally got a room towards the back of the hotel.
Average to small room, but a terrible moldy or
musty smell from the closet. How they could let that
pass without fixing it is incomprehensible. Front
desk staff generally indifferent and unhelpful, though this varied a bit depending on who was there at the time.
Would not stay here again.
(Note: above comments based on a stay in Feb. 2001)
Nasty, stinking, dirty!
If you don't mind taking a shower in the hair and filth that
the previous occupants left and sleeping on sheets that have not been changed since the dawn of time, this is the hotel for you! The room was small, there was only one bed and a cot, the doors were paper thin and the staff (when they could be found) was no help at all. If I was able to give scores in the negative range I would!! My stay here was the longest two nights of my life.
