Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location, a short walk to the beach and Ocean Drive
  • All standard rooms have 32-inch flat-screen TVs and iPod docks
  • 24-hour concierge
  • Rooftop High Bar is popular party spot
  • 24-hour room service from on-site Italian restaurant, Serafina
  • Pets allowed (fees apply)
  • Tudor House offers American cuisine in stylish surroundings

Cons

  • Rooms are small, with tricky lighting systems
  • No fitness center (fee for access to nearby gym)
  • Rooftop pool is tiny
  • Fee for Wi-Fi and only pricey valet parking available

Bottom Line

Literally a one-minute walk from the beach, this trendy boutique hotel -- like many others in the area -- caters to young, hip partiers. The lobby is decorated with a sleek black-and-white motif, the rooftop pool and bar are hopping late into the night, and house music plays throughout the property. The pool is tiny and the sexy see-through bathrooms aren't particularly kid-friendly, so families may want to consider the nearby Loews Miami Beach.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A short walk from the beach, in the Art Deco District

Dream South Beach is in the Art Deco District, which is comprised of three long streets lined by historic buildings with quirky, geometric architecture. The beach is less than a one-minute walk from the hotel.

Quaint, neon-lit South Beach (or "SoBe") might be the sexiest beach town in America, with modeling agencies flanking a broad topless beach. People watching is the draw, especially in Ocean Drive's historic Art Deco District, which is packed with outdoor bars, cafes, flashy cars, Rollerbladers, rainbow flags, and plenty of fake-boob bikini bodies. Chic clubs with especially discerning bouncers draw the fashion-industry elite, the occasional celebrity, and plenty of 20-somethings ready to party.

  • 15-minute drive to Miami International Airport
  • 1-minute walk to the beach
  • 2-minute walk to Ocean Drive, lined with hotels, bars, and restaurants
  • 10-minute walk to Espanola Way, an area of shops and restaurants steeped in history
  • 3-minute drive to Lincoln Road's shops and art galleries
  • 4-minute drive to Miami Beach marina
  • 10-minute drive to the American Airlines Arena, home to Miami Heat
  • 11-minute drive to downtown Miami

 Bottom Line

Literally a one-minute walk from the beach, this trendy boutique hotel -- like many others in the area -- caters to young, hip partiers. The lobby is decorated with a sleek black-and-white motif, the rooftop pool and bar are hopping late into the night, and house music plays throughout the property.
