When I visited this hotel a few years back, I found a lot of things to love. We just visited it again and it is even better. Our little one-night mid-week vacation felt like a long, lovely weekend getaway. The Z Ocean's location can't be beat. Steps from the beautifiul beach, where they have their very own Estaban's service setting up the fluffy towels and umbrellas and chairs. Under a half mile to Escondido Way and the Lincoln Road Mall with all their great restaurants and a late-night walk under the stars along Collins, pulsing with music even on a Monday night, on your return. What's not to love? The people who work at this hotel are caring, but in a genuine way. That starts with the front desk, who were always so helpful, and even before that at the top. There is good management at work here. You can see it when you talk with people like Pat, the bartender or the lady who cleaned our room and brought us our nightly chocolates. As for our room, we we were upgraded to a Penthouse suite and it is a superlative 2-story affair. At the very top is a private jacuzzi, a wet bar, everything you need for a party under the stars. (We were in Miami on business and hadn't been thinking party, so instead we contented ourselves with the room's incredible 5-jet surround-you-with-water shower!). We kept congratulating ourselves at how well we mixed business with pleasure as we sipped our Nespresso coffees in the room (followed by an incredible French Toast breakfast in the hotel's Front Porch Cafe). What could have been a drudge trip into Miami became a real celebration. Thanks to this incredible hotel which embodies everything I like about Miami beach, its ease, its tucked-off-the-side shaded pathways to the beach, the beach. This hotel gets that. , you can tell it in the easygoverheadedible showerto enjoy one of . A A gI have reviewed this hotel before and Collapse

A few days ago my wife and I checked in to the Z Ocean Hotel to celebrate my birthday. I could not have chosen a better hotel. As we approached the front desk we were greeted by two wonderful representatives that enhanced our stay. We were assigned a very nice suite with a view of the pool. Our accommodations were delightful, clean, and very relaxing. The management provided me with a bottle of wine and scrumptious cookies. The bar and restaurant in the hotel had great cocktails and good food too. Our stay was too short, but we plan to stay here again and would encourage you to do so too. Collapse

what you get: great location, very good and big room, balcony and most of all: the staff ! When I want a lot of sun, sand, good time, I allways return to the Z ocean 2 times a year for the past 5 years. By the way, be a member of IHG, cost nothing and you get add-on. But when I say " the staff" that make a difference, it mean that I know that I can trust them and they will do there best to make sure that I have good vacation. So thank to : Antelo (manager), Robin & Cory ( reception), Dominico (concierge) and Tonya (maid). Thank From canada Collapse

Just a short overnight trip but a great find. This is also a Crowne Plaza hotel now so IHG membership is valid. Hard to get to, road construction and traffic. Parking is a bit awkward, but great valet service. Helpful front desk, and free champagne. Nice outside bar but it closed early. Good restaurant and bar inside - and a fantastic breakfast menu. It is kind of a kitchy, art deco style, but nicely updated. Collapse

Recommended for staff, caring/dutiful management, great breakfast, superb location, reserved beach area, I'd be very happy with either room, though as a personal preference I'd avoid the poolside rooms unless a family wanting continuous pool access for my kids. This is an hotel I'd have absolutely no hesitation returning to, like they say with selling houses.... location location location, and staff were a credit too. Booked a May2017 Sat+Sun nights 2nightstay here. Twofold reason, the IC Miami downtown soldout for 4nights due to some music event, plus decided nice to see the beach area on a weekend.. 2nights, and keep 2nights in reserve for any side visit near to Miami that might be worth doing once I'd arrived+asked around. Weekends nights were much pricier close in. I was quite shocked at rate for a CP that is actually a "condomininium hotel", (I think 20/100 rooms still have external owners) but a quick check of other Miami hotels nightly rates made me realise this was the market rate for location, though I booked late in, the extension of 2weekday nights were $100++/night cheaper Despite a great easy 5minute checkin, at 3pm probably my unluckiest ever checkin experience right after I hit my room ........Just so unlucky, 10mins later, dumping my stuff on bed etc, putting ids/wallets etc in safe, about to shower, fire alarm went off. After waiting 7mins I abandonded hotel room via stairs, found my self stuck outside on pavement till 7pm, no money, no wallet, about 7 fire dept appliances, road closed off, a great welcome to Miami. Manager-on-Duty did follow up within 10mins of return to room, offering 5000 hotel points, drink, upgrade on future stay. I may have been called as one of first guests DM apologied to as a high elite (Spire Royal Ambassador). I was impressed enough with DM's immediate phonecall, am obviously genuine attitude/apology that I immediately asked DM to add my 2x blank nights Mon+Tue to my Sat+Sun 2night stay. (I think it was FireChiefs and their extended checking , not the hotel that caused the massive delay to return to my room) o Room 1 (Sat+Sun) Spa Suite + Large Room, comfy King Bed + Pillows, Large TV, tremendous Cable TV channel offering, large bathroom, though Shower only type. + Sofa , Table and chairs in room + large bacony with although 2/3rds roofed over, table+chairs, large 4person Jacuzi on balcony. I found I can get sun in morning and evening + fridge for guest use + minibar with beer/soda/wine/water, usual coffee+tea facilities o Room 2 (Mon+Tue) KNG PARTL OCEANVIEW ROOFTOP TER (foc makeup upgrade from base room) + Large Room, comfy King Bed + Pillows, Large TV, tremendous Cable TV channel offering, large bathroom, though Shower only type. + Bed ans Sofa part of room divided by full height cabinet /TV Unit (had TV both sides) + Sofa , Table and chairs in living room part, plus sink, minibar, fridge +sliding balcony doors to small balcony with table+chsairs PLUS spiral staircase to roof (a private fenced off roof area for each room ) + large roof balcony.... i)Massive Jacuzi again ii)table+chairs iii)full awning to close/open to sun/rain etc as one wants + balcony view to the sea (sea must be 1000m away or so) o Communal Area (Ground) + Reception/Checkin Desk + Large ractangular enclose bar, with seats all around. Overflow for breakfast is eat at bar WARNING - Resdtaurant at B/f is not hotel owned and serves outsiders. Very poular (ie fully occupied with upto 45min wait) on Sat+Sun mornings .. hence offer of eat b/f at bar top + Medium sized restaurant, fixed menu breakfast. Get voucher from reception, I found good value. + There is a RESORT FEE (not cheap) but CP Z has reserved private area with sun loungers on the lovely sandy beach, only 500m walk away or so. Collapse
