    Historical Traveler Reviews The President Hotel - Miami Beach

    I had a great time!

    from

    Only a good review!! We went to this hotel 5 years ago for the first time after it was completly renovated and we had a great time and for that reason we were going back every year after the first one.

    Friendly staff, good cleaning service...not a single complaint at all.

    Why it is that they are almost always sold out? They have to do something right...don't you agree?

    We will keep going! If we want a 5 stars service we would go to a 5 stars hotel. This one is perfect and affordable.

    Don't bother!!!

    from

    Please take my advice!!! Do not stay here. It smelled, rooms were small, furniture is old, and to top it off you have to fight with the bugs on your bed!!! And the staff!!! We asked for a manager to take care of the bug problem or change rooms atleast 3 times and we waited close to an hour to get someone... It was awefull. Never had anything like this happen ever before! We wound up checking out and going to a real hotel. It was sold and a 3 star hotel. RIGHT, SURE! More like a -3 star at best!

    Go somewhere else..

    from

    Although this hotel is suppose to serve as a clean and quaint place to shower and rest, the hotel odor is a complete turn-off, they blast bar music at 9am, and it is run down. The odor is the worst part and this is after switching rooms already, we checked out and headed to The Keys..

    The President Hotel

    from

    Clean and comfortable room. We got an internet special on this room so it was cheap but I would have felt robbed if we had paid full price as it wouldn't be worth full price !

    Great location for Ocean Drive and all the bars and cafes.

    There is a walkway through to the beach but I wouldn't cut through it after dark.

    We enjoyed our stay though.

    If you want to face the beach stay at the sister hotel called The Penguin.

    Dump - noun - President Hotel

    from

    Ok - it was cheap - in the middle of everthing, but this place was a dump. When we arrived, the room that was given to us smelled like a locker room, mix of body odor and garbage and wet carpet. The room was a decent size, with a full size bed. We asked for another room - no smell, but had 2 full beds and hence the room was 75% smaller. the room had old carpet and old bed covers, yuk. The bathroom was ok - but had no outlets, had to dry my hair in the room, and move the mirror on the wall onto the spare bed because it was too high. The lobby was cute - but there was no bar, no food, so if you wanted a before bed drink, no luck. The pool was a joke, I could swin the length of it with 2 strokes, and I'm 5'0". My advice - stay at a brand name hotel in Miami Beach...at least they have standards.

    Low rates! Great Location!

    from

    My boyfriend and I stayed May 26, 2004. We only payed $45 for our one night stay! PERFECT location! close to beach, boardwalk, shopping, and clubs. The lobby is cute but our room wasn't great... Kinda dumpy. IT WAS CLEAN!<--- our main priority! , but in desperate need of renovation. The hall smelled terribly of mildew but when we got in our room we couldn't smell it. The bed was squeaky. There was no view at all. The noise level was not bad. Overall, I WOULD STAY THERE AGAIN for $45, 55, or 65.. But the supposed $120 average nightly rate, ... You have got to be kidding! I'd rather pitch a tent on the beach than pay that kind of money.

    Awful!

    from

    There is only one good thing about this hotel, the Loation is GREAT, and for 60 dollars a night the price was good too. Other than that I have nothing else good to say about it. I had FLEAS in my room, and I got bitten everywhere, my mom found a cockroach in the washroom and the elavator was too slow, I was afraid It was going to get stuck half the time. The blankets on the beds were disgusting, hairs and holes (they need to get some new ones, must be a cheap owner). MY ADVICE: Add a few bucks and stay somwhere normal.

    Horrible

    from

    Due to the comments about the Pelican Hotel, I have changed my bookings from Pelican to the Hotel President, because ratings were better. But unfortunately the staff at the reception desk was somewhat clued to the computer and axtremely slow. We got a room next to the elevator on the Lobby level, which kept us awake all night and we had cockroaches and black bugs. I would recommend to stay away from the Hotel President !

    President is OK

    from

    President Hotel was in a good location within walking distance to shops, bars, restaurants. Nothing fancy though. The brochure and on-line shows a bar in the lobby - that is never open. Brochure also shows a roof-top with tables and palm trees which makes you think that's open to everyone, but it is only accessible from one room which is higher priced than the others. The room we stayed in was adequate and the price was right compared to many others in the area.

    Was not presidential at all!

    from

    I stayed at the President hotel last march for the second time. My sister and I meet in Miami every year for my birthday. The first time we stayed there it wasn't bad at all for the price. We thought that the lobby had a cute atmosphere and that it was at a reasonable price. So, we decided that we would stay there again, boy was that a mistake! Upon arriving we were greeted by a rude person at the front desk. They would only give us one key, and refused after begging to give us two. Our room had bugs crawling on the floor, our toilet ran all the time, you could feel the springs through the bed and it had a huge dip in the middle. When I called down to the front desk and explained that the room wasn't up to our standards, we were told while they were laughing, "tough luck". This also happened to be during MTV's Spring break in Miami (which we didn't know and didn't participate in because we are in our late 20's). There were drug deals and fights going on in the hallway. I saw the police in the hotel about 5 times during a weekend stay! I had a friend join us for a night and we asked for a cot at 2 in the afternoon, at 8 oclock we still hadn't recieved it. I called the front desk 7 times and they finally delivered it at 10:15 at night. I was drinking a water at the bar and they refused to let me bring it to my room!??? What in the world is the problem with this hotel. Save your sanity and stay somewhere else!!!!

    ... cuts an imposing figure over the water. I liked looking at her very much. When we got back to shore we walked down Wall Street getting really rather damp by this point. The snow had turned to drizzle and then to pretty heavy rain. We made our way to ground zero and the 9/11 tribute centre. I was surprised at how it affected us. It felt very sad to be there, however the tribute was very tasteful and not over the top. Very well done. There was, of course, the usual idiots taking ...

This is a new ride, you enter thru the castle gates and make your way down the passageways and corridors of Hogwarts School. There are various rooms that you visit including Dumbledore's office, and Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom, whilst queuing for the ride. The ride is a 4 person car and it another 3d motion moving vehicle. It does state on numerous signs in the ...

    ... the same top so they looked like real fans together! Lucas looked a real dude. We also got a couple of foam gloves to cheer with. Our seats were great - right at the front so we could really get involved with the game. The other thing about baseball matches is the theatre element of it all - loads going on within the match with cheerleaders, mascots racing, mexican waves, crowd involvement etc. The kids loved it. Also the food that ...

    ... it was hard to tell in the air conditioning. So we went downstairs to get a quick breakfast and go outside to test the temperature. I wasn't sure whether to wear shorts. But as soon as we stepped outside it was warm and very humid, so I knew my jeans were coming off. We tried to go out on the beach to eat our breakfast, but it cost money to sit in a chair. So we went back to a poolside bar and asked if we could sit there. The place was deserted, so they let us.

    Then we ...

    ... We also drove through Little Havana, which, as far as “Little” places go, was quite dull. The Miami Beach part of the tour was more interesting. Many of the buildings were built in an art deco style, and are protected now. We saw the hotel where “The Birdcage” was filmed and passed “Star Island” – home of many celebrities and also the white house from Scarface (“say hello to my little friend!”). ...
