Heute gehts erstmal den Ocean Drive hoch bis zur 20., dann zur Lincoln Road und später an den Strand.
Wir verbringen einen typischen Miami Beach Tag: Frühstück am Ocean Drive, Strand, Shopping an der Collins Ave., Leute schauen, die Promenade entlang laufen, Art Déco Hotels fotografieren....ich liebe Miami Beach!!!
Am Nachmittag besuchen wir das Wolfsonian Museum mit mehr als 70.000 amerikanischen und …
Relativ kurzentschlossen haben wir uns für den Herbsturlaub in Florida entschieden. Die Flugpreise waren in Ordnung, dank offizieller Hurricane-Season gabs gute Hotels zu kleinen Preisen und auf die Bahamas wollten wir auch schon lange - es kann also losgehen :-)
Wir starten um 7.30 Uhr von Stuttgart nach Paris; von dort mit Air France …
It is cold and snowing at home so we decided to leave the hectic holiday season and cold weather for some sun and sand. Our US Air flight was late at AVP and we ended up missing our connection in Philly. After a three hour layover, we were in the air again and arrived in Miami at 6pm instead of 3pm. We took a taxi to South Beach ($32 flat rate). We …
Oh, it is great to be on vacation. We woke up around 6am and I headed out for a run about 6:30. People were already at the Starbucks across the street. I passed by, cut through the park and hit the beach. Starting on 2nd street I headed north. The sand was firm and great for running. Not like in the northeast US were you sink up to your ankles. …

Historical Traveler Reviews Century Hotel Miami Beach
Nicest rooms and best Miami location
This is the place to stay... I highly recommend this hotel, Nice rooms with very confortable down beds and nice marble bathroom. this is a nice and confortable place to stay. The management is very friendly and and helpfull, the hotel has the best location in Miami. We really enjoyed our stay...
I recently visited the Century July 23-25 2004 and it was great. The staff was excellent and very friendly. The hotel is very quaint and quiet, I reccommend this place to stay if you are visiting with a significant other. We found ourselves sleeping in everyday becasue the beds were so comforatable (down blanket and pillows). I found the rooms to be very clean and very cute. The whole hotel had a very small but comforatable feeling. By the end of our trip we didnt want to leave and we told ourselves that we would be back to stay at this hotel. I have stayed at much more expensive hotels on Ocean, but this place was alot cheaper than most and was much nicer. I would reccommend this place for someone that wants to be close to the ocean, action, and its very quiet.
The Century is located right across the beach in the quiet part of Ocean Drive. The hotel staff is very friendly and very good looking also!
It is tastefully decorated and the beds are very comfortable.
I have recommended the century to all my airline colleagues.
We would not classify the Century Hotel as a "boutique hotel". We would not recommend it.
Not bad, but don't rely on the website
I stayed 5 nights at the Century Hotel. Frankly, it's not a bad place to stay. I liked the quiet location in the southern part of Ocean Drive. Bars and clubs are easily accessible and you won't be disturbed by rowdy crowds partying all night long. Breakfast was minimal, though (Canned fruit, cornflakes, coffee, juice). In addition, staff was friendly, but didn't go out of their way to assist. Yes, the safe did not work, there was no iron, no alarm clock, but I really did not care too much... If you get a good rate at the Century (like I did), it is definitely a place to consider if you can do without much luxury.
To start off with the website is misleading. The rooms are verry basic,bed cd player,phone and a t.v. Oh yeah also a minibar. The a.c.
Articulate rooms, great service, perfect location to all the restaurants and clubs, though very quiet. The service was that of a large resort with a terrific Front Desk staff! I will return...thank you Century Hotel for a perfect stay!
We stayed at the Century on 2/15/03 and after reading the reviews were worried. The room was clean and furnished in a modern European style with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was ok. We found no dead ants, the help were friendly ( they lost our reservation but found it and stated that they were switching computer systems). The air conditioner was loud but no worse than many places. The only noise we encounter was the garbage collectors at 7:00 AM. Would we stay at the Century again? I'm not sure. I have no real negatives; it is a cute hotel in a quieter part of South Beach
It's not the best place to stay
I stayed with a friend in this hotel, I like the bed a lot, so comfortable, and the furniture was ok... but, but, the employees that work here are the worst. Man!, they always have an ugly face, even the manager! I didn't saw a smile and everybody there attend me with bad humor.
When we had to come back to our country, we left an important envelope for my partners in Miami, but the staff of the front desk lost it!
Think before choose this place!
