Miami, Florida, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Clean, contemporary rooms with flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and comfortable beds
  • Retro vibe throughout, with funky paintings, cute artwork, and bright colors
  • Clean, well-maintained pool with a few lounge chairs
  • Free parking, free Wi-Fi, free use of a computer in the lobby
  • Free basic breakfast in the garden
  • Inexpensive shuttle to the airport, South Beach and the Port of Miami

Cons

  • Located far from major tourist attractions
  • Thin walls
  • Rooms closest to the road experience noise (free earplugs provided)
  • Some rooms are smallish
  • Neighborhood can feel a bit seedy at night

Bottom Line

Before the owners decided to give the New Yorker a boutique-y twist in 2009, the 50-room family-run property was a basic motel in a somewhat out-of-the-way location. However, the fresh coats of paint, the clean, airy rooms with flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges, and the cool retro vibe throughout make it stand a notch above its former motel status. The thin walls, the outside entrances to the rooms, and the lack of amenities remain, but the hotel offers a nice pool, great rates, and a long list of solid freebies that make it a good pick for value. Also, Travel Channel’s Hotel Impossible revamped the garden area where breakfast is served, and turned it into a lovely, quiet spot with lanterns hanging from the trees, bright colors, and comfy seating.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a local area a 15-minute drive from Miami Beach

The New Yorker is located on Biscayne Boulevard, one of the main thoroughfares running north-south along the Biscayne Bay. There are a few eateries within a few blocks, and a park with basketball and tennis courts across the street from the hotel, but the area is pretty local and a bit out of the way for those who want to be close to the beach and the party areas. However, the Julia Tuttle Causeway, which links the western shore of the Bay and the beaches, is just a five-minute drive from the hotel, which means South Beach is 15 minutes from the New Yorker.

  • 15-minute drive to Miami International Airport
  • 5-minute drive to the Design District's shops and galleries
  • 8-minute drive to Adrienne Arsht Center of the Performing Arts, a triple threat of opera, philharmonics and ballet
  • 8-minute drive to Rubell Family Collection, one of the world's greatest private collections
  • 9-minute drive to the Margulies Collection
  • 10-minute drive to American Airlines Arena, home to the Miami Heat
  • 14-minute drive to Downtown Miami
  • 15-minute drive to South Beach
  • 19-minute drive to Coral Gables
  • 34-minute drive to Fort Lauderdale
