Fodor's Review

Fashion designer Todd Oldham preserved the Art Deco roots of The Hotel, which inhabits the historic Tiffany building on Collins Avenue, and has expanded the property with 20 new deluxe oceanfront rooms and suites along fabulous Ocean Drive. The name spelled vertically in eye-popping neon on the venue’s iconic aluminum spire—Tiffany—bears evidence of the hotel’s earlier incarnation. When the L. Murray Dixon–designed Tiffany Hotel was erected in 1939, neon was

still a novelty. Its use, coupled with the spire’s rocket-like shape, combined to create a futuristic look influenced by the sci-fi themes then pervasive in popular culture. Nowadays, everything in this quirky, romantic boutique hotel, from the decor of the restaurant Wish, to the tie-dye bathrobes hanging in the small but cute bathrooms, is colorful and eclectic. Somehow the aesthetic of soft browns and whites works, thanks to the knowing eye of megadesigner Oldham. Add soft lighting and two-person bathtubs, and you have all the makings of a romantic retreat. The hotel's most exquisite treat is a rooftop bar, a low-key hangout where locals and hotel guests lounge under the neon light of the Tiffany sign Thursday–Saturday nights.

The Hotel the worst

paying in the $200 range for a property without a working elevator is wrong in all kinds of ways, as they seem to like the fact they render no services at all. Save your trouble, if you do try to recover sleep from the street noise that kept you up all night, housekeeping will be sure to wake you from that nap. Yuk.

Oversized Closet Room

We paid $155/nt. for a package which included welcome cocktails, poolside Sangria, Lancome discounts. We had to ask twice when checking in for vouchers for package. The room was interestingly decorated but extremely small. Tie-dyed robes and rooftop pool were the best assets. Much better values in South Beach like The Sagamore or The National.

The ONLY Hotel

Saw The Hotel in a magazine, booked it and loved it. My husband didn't even complain. Favorite part of the room - the shower. Favorite thing about the hotel - the White Russians with those blue-green straws. Made me feel like a little kid.

The Hotel is IT

We had a wonderful time here. We were very fortunate to have been able to take advantage of their "Noble Eagle" program of reduced rates good until sometime in December 2001 (see their website). Not sure we could afford it otherwise, so for us the value was very high. Pool is just terrific place to have a Mai Tai or Pina Colada while watching the sunset or fun on the beach across the way!! Only be prepared for the smells of cooking in nearby

eateries when on the roof. The Staff were very helpful and charming.

Ecclectic Cool

All things about this place are great. Location; Just a street over from all the activity so that you can actually partake without having it invade your room every night. Pool; The best view of the beach from this rooftop wonder. Service; Excellent. Only negative; interior noise was bothersome. Sounded like giants were walking around upstairs. Otherwise, great place for a perfect getaway. Would return at the rate I paid.
