Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located in the heart of South Beach
  • Large rooms (for the area)
  • Rooftop patio with views
  • Across from the beach
  • Continental breakfast and happy hour
  • Pets allowed
  • 1410 Ocean Cafe with outdoor patio on-site

Cons

  • No pool
  • Lack of privacy in ocean-view rooms
  • Daily resort fee
  • Expensive valet parking

Bottom Line

The 48-room, mid-range Edgewater South Beach offers good value for the price compared to its competitors. The location is perfect for beach lovers and those who want to be at the center of the lively SoBe scene, and the spacious rooms and suites come with the convenience of well-equipped kitchenettes. The Edgewater lacks a pool and hot tub, but the basic continental breakfast and evening happy hour are appreciated extras. On the lobby level, an independently operated bar and restaurant with outdoor patio seating attracts lots of foot traffic during the dinner hour. Pets are welcome and a valet will park your car, but both services cost an additional fee.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

A mid-range Art Deco boutique hotel with appealing outdoor lounging areas

Housed behind a 1930's stucco-and-tile facade designed to evoke the South of France, the Edgewater's paneled lobby is neat but narrow and fairly plain. Thoughtful front desk touches include a fresh fruit bowl and chilled water, and a rumpled leather sofa is casual and comfortable. Outdoor areas such as the rooftop lounge and the patio restaurant and bar feature more attractive views and livelier action.

 Location

On Ocean Drive in the center of SoBe

The Edgewater boasts a premier location directly across the street from the beach and within walking distance of the area's restaurants, nightclubs and boutiques. Ultra-chic hotel The Betsey is right next door, and the renowned Art Deco District is a 10-minute walk south on Ocean Drive. Miami International Airport is within a 25-minute drive.

 Rooms

Big and beige

While the neutral color scheme and modular contemporary furniture won't win any design awards, the Edgewater's rooms are spacious, understated, and attractive. Each features a well-equipped kitchenette with either a breakfast bar or dining table and a separate area with sofa and flat-screen TV. Suites have carpeted bedrooms accessed down two steps off a narrow hallway. Bathrooms are clean, modern and upscale, with marble walls and floors and glass-enclosed showers. Because they surround the rooftop breakfast and lounge area, ocean-view rooms lack privacy.

 Features

Good value for the price

Although the hotel lacks resort amenities such as a pool, the Edgewater's oceanfront locale and comfortable rooms add up to a satisfying mid-priced stay in South Beach. Guests appreciate extras such as the continental breakfast and cocktail hour on the roof, where peeks of the ocean can be spotted through elaborate Mediterranean arches. However, these "freebies" are bundled into an additional daily resort fee. The attached restaurant, 1410 Ocean Cafe, serves American cuisine and has a sidewalk patio.

 Bottom Line

The 48-room, mid-range Edgewater South Beach offers good value for the price compared to its competitors. The location is perfect for beach lovers and those who want to be at the center of the lively SoBe scene, and the spacious rooms and suites come with the convenience of well-equipped kitchenettes.
