Travel Blogs from Miami Beach
We booked into a tour which I thought was a little ****. We didn't see much and the windows were so dirty for a sight seeing tour it was a joke. We stopped at Little Havana (Cuba) as soon as I stepped into this cigar factory where they were rolling them by hand the smell was so strong I felt sick and had to get back outside. It reminded me of my …
We took a little trip to the Everglades for a boat ride checking out the alligators etc. we also stopped in at the home of the Gator boys from TV. The talk didn't last long but it was good. Next stop Miami! Wow Miami south beach is a happening place. We sat for lunch over looking the street watching the cars people etc. Everyone we have met have …
Today has been an awesome day because i've slept very well.
first of all me, my dad, my mom, my little brother and my grandma went to David Café too eat breakfast.
I ordered a mango juice, a breakfast sandwich, it contanied eggs and bacon and a pineapple mango smoothie. And it tasted delicious.
Then we went back to the hotel too get …
... hadn't known they were meant to be checking out today! So it was interesting explaining to the new girls that although it was great to have them, there would be two girls coming back who would be a little annoyed to find they'd been ejected from the room! But it all worked out eventually and they found a new room for the ...
... in a candy store when they met again (apart from nearly fighting on the second day- surprise, surprise). We went to Miami beach and then out for dinner (which Leo shouted- we should get engaged more often!). We had these amazing cocktails that were huge. Ben and leon got a cocktail with 2 coronas sticking out the top. Needless to say we weren't feeling that great the next day. We did a boat tour of the Everglades during which we got to hold ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kent Hotel Miami Beach
I stayed at the Kent in early February 2004. The lobby and garden are not as nice as the pictures. The room was decent in size (I had a corner room); the bathroom is small but functional. The decor is simple but clean and modern. There is only dial-up Internet access in the room (there is one computer in the lobby). The room is cleaned and the bed made every day. If you sleep late, remember to place the "Privacy" tag on the door and the cleaning crew will leave you alone (in the morning, the noise from the street and other guests could be loud and it is hard to hear the crew knocking). The wall is rather thin and you could hear everything from the next room or the street. Collins street is bursting with activity until 3-4 AM; and this could be fun or bothersome depending on your view. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. If you don't demand a very high level of luxury and want to stay at a convenient location at a great price (I booked through the Net); this is an excellent choice.
Good location with attitude
Stayed in Mid-January 2004. Decent location to South Beach and Lincoln Road plaza. Front desk staff was slow and valet at $16 per day slow.
Park at public lot near hotel for better service.
Good location. Room is small but reaosnably clean.some lamps dont work.
Position of the TV is very annoying. it is simply hung too high up.Front desk staffs are helpful. parking fee is somewhat too high but there is free internet in the lobbyPaid US$95 plus tax per night but noticed somebody walked in and negotiated a rate of US$85
After reading the reviews here, i got really worried, since they are really varied. But I visited August 1st - August 4th, 2003 and had a great time. The staff was friendly, and my room was much bigger than I expected. The colors were pleasant, and made the room feel even bigger, and the The bathroom was fairly large also. The bed was comfortable, the a/c worked fine, and the tv had lots of channels! I was on the top floor, in a corner room, so maybe these rooms are larger. (room 222) I agree the elevator was scary, but, its only one flight of stairs to walk!!The location is great, and for the price we paid through expedia, I think we got a great deal. I didn't have any problems with feel secure, especially since they lock the doors after 11 so that you can be buzzed in.I say, if you aren't looking to spend tons on the hotel, and you want something youthful, funky, and more interesting than a motel 6, then try this place.
I stayed at the Kent hotel in Miami from July 18th to July 20th 2003.
Nice hotel, friendly staff but use the safe
I stayed at the Kent over the July 4th holiday. The staff was very friendly and that was a suprise since South Beach has a reputation for rudeness. The room was nice and everything that i had hoped that it would be. There was, however a security concern that would prevent me from recommending it to anyone and I won't be staying there again.
Don't stay here. Service is bad. Hotel staff goes in your room at night. And these folks don't care. You'll be sorry if you stay here.
Decent stay at the Kent
This hotel is a good value and has a great location. Our room was decorated completely in purple and was clean and quiet. However, the room and bathroom are quite small. The hallways are pretty dingy looking. When coming back to Miami, I wouldn't mind staying here again, but I'd probably want to try out other hotels to compare.
A room with decadence and a flair for naughtiness
Ive stayed at the kent hotel 2 times, both in the same room. The room im refering to is the lucide room. Ive stayed in some of the finest hotels, lets just say its hobby and im good at it. This hotel with this room was the best with all the amenities you could ever want. This room has everything from dance floor to big screen tv and a excellent sound system. The staff was local but all the class of a hotel right on park ave. I loved this hotel great decor. This hotel has what most everything lacks attitude!
Chic and sexy in the heart of SOBE
Trendy hotels such as the Delano, National, Surfcomber, Raleigh, and the Loews have been uprooted by chic boutique style inns throughout the SOBE district. The Kent located just between 13th and 14th street on Collins, is as trendy as any boutique inn can be. A two minute walk to Miami's hot and happening Sushi Rock Cafe, seconds from the glitz and glammor of Ocean Drive, Lincoln Road, and the Shoppes at Collins, the Kent provides comfortable accomodations for the adventurous yet slightly shy traveler, as it is within the megapolis of Miami, yet provides one with the breathing space of a Colorado lodge.The Kent hosts a terrific outdoor bar area on weeknights, and attracts native Miamians from all walks of life. The Kent is a must see!
