While hot, it was actually pretty cool to ride around, riding along the beach, through the Botanical Gardens, past Versace's Mansion and even saw a beautiful monument of a hand reaching to God in front of the Holocaust Museum. The stop at an ice cream stand was more than welcome, and the Strawberry Shortcake ice cream was awesome. After that, a small group of us headed ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Grand Vacations Club At South Beach Miami Beach
HGV was very good!
My wife and I spent three nights recently at the HGV South Beach. We found the staff to be very helpful and courteous, the location excellent and the room decor very nice. There really is no view or a pool but that was OK with us. We came to go to the beach and tour the neighborhood. We left our car with the valet $16/day, next time I would use public parking at half the rate. We are planning to go back
We were there the weekend of March 26-28, 2004. This was a great choice for Miami Beach. It was right across from the ocean, across a park which was also nice for relaxing under the trees. The place looks a bit run-down on the outside - it looked like they were redoing the facade of one of the sister hotels next door - but it's nice inside. And pretty quiet. We heard nothing that woke us up at night.
It was OK
I expected a lot after reading the reviews and was disapointed after arrival. Staff was not helpful. Bell boys stood right in front of us and didn't offer to help w/ bags (2 bldgs away and 3 stories up). Check in was in a building up the street and not explained. Rooftop suite was nice but overpriced. Some of the appliances were out of order in the kitchenette. Furnishings were a little tired. On a positive note, it was fun to sit up there and watch the action on the street below. Great location with views of the beach but I probably won't stay here again.
This place was GREAT and we will always stay here when visiting South Beach. Our mouths dropped when we walked into our ocean view room!! It was beautiful and immaculate!!! All the windows opened to let the ocean breeze flow through. The kitchen has all of the cooking utencils needed for cooking a full meal. There was plenty of space for three girls to get ready for an evening of going out dancing. I didn't make it to the jacuzzi but the other girls said it was fabulous. The staff was friendly and extremely efficient. It was a $5.00 cab ride to most of the hottest clubs and lounges. There is a convenient store, liqour store and grocery all right around the corner. It's in the most perfect part of Ocean Drive. We even slept with the windows open! Loved this place and will tell everyone about it!
Crescent suites, Ocean drive
The crescent suites on Ocean drive was a fantastic place to stay. The location was perfect.... beach just across the road and at the quieter north end of Ocean drive. This hotel consists of apartment suites with a separate living and kitchen area. The staff were always friendly and willing to help. I would highly recommend this place to anyone planning a stay in the South beach area!!
I spent a long weekend in South Beach in mid-December and stayed at the Hilton Grand Vacations Club. I thought it was great! HGVC consists of three separate buildings - the Ocean Plaza, the McAlpin, and the Crescent - all of which are privately owned time share suites that are rented out as available. The phone number for reservations is (305) 604-8225.
Stop looking for your hotel room
Stop looking for your hotel room; take the Hilton Grand Vacation Club right at South Beach. We stayed there the weekend of October 20th and it was awesome. We had room 3401 in the Cresent (art deco) hotel on the top floor with two bedrooms, two bathrooms (w/jacuzzi) and a living with kitchen for $200 a night. Across the hotel starts the beach and you can take towels from the main lobby. When you get back after the beach, there is a jacuzzi on the rooftop to relax. Parking is just around the corner (13th street) for $8 per 24 hours and a grocery market two blocks behind the hotel. The hotel is on Ocean Drive; close enough to all the action, far enough to miss the noise from any clubs in the area.
I vacationed at the Crescent hotel for 5 days in September '03....The hotel is located in the perhaps quitest stretch of Ocean drive and steps away from the dazzlingly beautiful south beach sands. No need for a car because everything is within strolling distance, including grocery markets and scooter rentals and all the swankest nightspots...The staff were especially helpful with any requests and my stay was enjoyable....
South Beach charm
We have stayed here twice. Obviously the location is great but the facilities are kept immaculate, the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Staff provided free beach chairs, towels, and umbrella-the beach is just across Ocean Drive. THe front rooms can be a little noisy during peak times-like Spring break. The people watching is fun, both on the beach and sitting on the porch walking folks out on the street. May not be the best location for families with children.
We're going back!!
This little hotel has all the charm of SoBe Art Deco, and all of the class and comfort of Hilton. All the rooms in this hotel are atleast one bedroom suites with very LARGE bathrooms, two TV's, two phone lines and it has been recently renovated. We were there in March of 2000 and we're going back this month. All of the internet research still brought me back to this porperty. You would pay over $250 for a room this big and nice if it was 3 blocks south! And I was able to get it for $150 on Travelocity. It is a short walking distance to everything and quiet too. Nice little jacuzzi's and a workout room;No pool...but the beach is right across the street! SoBe's little secret for a relaxing vacation.
