This hotel is great and affordable! My husband is a Spire Elite member and we were treated nicely. We were immediately upgraded to a penthouse suite with a private rooftop jacuzzi! The front desk was truly professional and friendly. The room was amazing with a bar and nespresso machine. Bathroom was nice with standing shower and jets, double vanity. Nice balcony with a spiral staircase to the rooftop with jacuzzi, fridge and hangout area. The swimming pool was on the 2nd floor and rather smaller but nice. They offer valet parking for $35/night and it worked great! The restaurant attached to the hotel was great and their breakfast options were amazing. Walk to the beach is less than 5 minutes and you can use the sun chairs for free and that was a big plus! Starbucks is other side of the road. Walgreens is one block away. Plenty of restaurants to choose nearby and also shopping is couple blocks away. Cant wait to return here! Collapse

There are many fine lodging options in South Beach, so the choice of where to stay couldn't be more exhausting and tedious. However, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind who takes top prize for best in location, customer service, great value and overall room comfort - Z Ocean Hotel! First and foremost, let me extend a huge thanks to Mr. Cory Friedman, the walking encyclopedia of South Beach and Miami hands down. I met him during check-in and he exuded a professionalism unlike most individuals in his position and even managed to remember the reason for my trip. I had emailed him over 2 months ago, so kudos to him for possessing such an impeccable memory! Besides Cory, we felt that the level of service and attention to detail by the reception staff were exceptional. A quick shout out to Robin, Stella, Richard and Lasha to just name a few. They made us feel comfortable and at ease, and never at all made us feel pretentious or out of place. The check-in and check-out process were smooth and efficient, and the staff really enjoyed enumerating all of the great amenities that the hotel had to offer. It is rare to see employees like their jobs as much as the Z Ocean staff. Great job, guys and gals! We were placed in room 215, one of their Spa Suites. The online pictures did not lie one bit. What you saw is what you got! The king bed with all of the pillows was simply glorious. The bed was just right. The sofa bed was good and of a more than decent size, although there wasn't much in the way of a blanket. The spacious bathroom had a wow factor. I loved the separation of the vanities, adding so much needed privacy when traveling with friends, which was the case for me. All of the amenities were well stocked and those Aveda products were nice touches. Even though I read about this online, I didn't really think about it until night two. All of those shower heads and nozzles truly encapsulated the spa experience - simply out of this world!! The living space was very spacious as well, with a comfy and large sofa, an enormous armchair, two sizeable TVs, more than ample storage space and a fully - stocked bar. It was definitely a very thoughtful touch to have the hotel surprise us with a bottle of champagne on our first night since my friend just finished his studies. The balcony with jacuzzi and lawn chairs was very roomy, although we didn't really take advantage of those amenities as much as we would have liked. With every room category, guests have access to the hotel's exclusive beach club on 15th Street (look for the hut that says "Esteban's Place"). They provide you with an umbrella, mats and blankets, and of course, very personalized service. Having heard about the so-called "best breakfast in South Beach", I had to make time to have breakfast at The Front Porch Cafe. On day two, I was the first person to arrive so maybe the staff wasn't quite ready but that wasn't a big deal for me. I ordered the cajun scramble and it was very flavorful and plentiful. Lastly, the location is definitely one of the best reasons to choose this hotel. It is so close to the beach but far from the hustle and bustle of other establishments farther south on Ocean Drive. There is no doubt that this hotel is superior to other similar ones in its price range but with every experience, there could be some room for improvement. It would be nice and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to adopt a walkie - talkie system to connect the beach club with reception. I didn't have my phone with me at the time and didn't want to venture out to the beach club to look for my friend, so it would have been nice to have a communication system in place. My other critiques are that my requested 8:00am wake - up call for day three never happened, the gin and tonic from Breezeway Bar left little to be desired and the housekeeping staff didn't finish cleaning my room when I came back around 5:00pm (She actually left when I arrived, despite the fact that she wasn't finished yet and I was offered to come back later!). All in all, most of us come to SoBe for the sun and the fun but wouldn't it be nice after a long day of sightseeing to come back to a hotel with all of the amenities and none of the drama? Choose Z Ocean and count on having the best Miami experience humanly possible! Collapse

Z Ocean is the best kept secret in SOBE! Location is amazing. Beach across the street- chairs and umbrella provided. Rooms are great. Great outdoor space for all the rooms. Pool is lovely. Hotel Resturant is delish and priced very reasonable. Robin, Cory and the rest of the staff were all magnificent. They went above and beyond to ensure the guests had a great stay. Would def stay again!! Collapse

Really enjoyed our stay, Richard at the front desk was a great help and made us feel very welcome after a long flight. We booked a spa bath king suite - loads of room, everything clean and fresh and a lovely jacuzzi area. Pool was a bit on the small side but served us well when we visited. Only con was the Concierge, who proved very unhelpful unfortunately. We wanted some information in regards to pool parties and brunches in the area, as we were visiting Tuesday to Saturday. Wasn't very helpful at all, didn't update us on any information he had found and in the end we just asked the locals about reservations and cover charges. Other than that, the stay was great!

I starting writing this review in my head as soon as we checked in because I was so blown away by the hotel . The next several days did nothing but improve my original impression . I used my IHG free anniversary nights and points for our stay and it was by far the nicest hotel I've stayed at with those redemption options. We were greeted with champagne and cold scented cloths to freshen up. Every employee I came into contact with was outstanding . My Platinum status earned us access to free chairs and umbrellas on the beach , a bottle of champagne delivered to our room, free wifi and free drink coupons . It was by far the best Platinum reception I have ever received . I was also shocked to learn that all taxes and resort fees were covered by my free night and points. The room was modern and lush . The bed linen high quality and a fabulous 5 nozzle shower with a rainfall shower head. The bonus espresso machine was icing on the cake. I liked this place so much I immediately called to extend my stay once we checked into the room. Collapse
