Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • No pool
  • No room service
  • No fitness center
  • Poor views -- parking lots, back alleys, dumpsters

Bottom Line

Located in the center of South Beach, about three blocks from the beach, the 19 modern suites at Suites on the Beach might not be on the beach, but they are certainly suites. While there's no pool or gym, each room has a full-size fridge, sink, microwave, dining area and, in some cases, a stove -- great, for the price.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the colorful Art Deco District of South Beach, less than a three-block walk to a bustling section of the beach at Lummus Park

Suites on the Beach is located about three blocks south of the more swanky part of Collins Avenue -- near the Delano Hotel -- beside a number of other less-exciting, small-scale Art Deco hotels, like the Beachcomber. It's advantage: It's much quieter than the hotels along Ocean Drive (across the street from the beach) but still just a short walk from the great restaurants and shops along the Lincoln Road outdoor mall as well as several nightclubs.

Quaint, neon-lit South Beach (or "SoBe") might be the sexiest beach town in America. Just imagine: modeling agencies beside a broad topless beach. Outdoor bars and cafes line Ocean Drive's historic Art Deco District, where people watching is the draw -- 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 twentysomethings ready to party. Every local seems to be a model, DJ, publicist, broker, or homeless eccentric. It's not all glitz -- cheap Cuban sandwich joints, fishbowl-size discount margaritas, and Bud-Light-slinging dive bars peacefully coexist with the posh hotel lounges and famed fusion restaurants.

  • Five-minute walk to the beach
  • Valet parking available; $25 per night (common, for South Beach)
  • 15-miute walk to Lincoln Road pedestrian mall
  • 10-miute walk to the Miami Beach Convention Center
  • 10-minute drive to Parrot Jungle Island and the Miami Children's Museum
  • 20-minute drive or $35 taxi to Miami International Airport
  • 35-minute drive or $65 taxi to Fort Lauderdale International Airport
  • 20-minute drive to the Port of Miami

 Rooms

Clean, minimalist decor -- the standard for Miami -- in huge rooms with a full-size fridge and kitchen area (no stove), but the balconies overlook back alleys and dumpsters
