This hotel is under a new owner for about a year now apparently and it is wonderful. We come during the boat show every year to work when rates are outrageous everywhere on the beach, so for the past few years - this is where we have stayed. We were pleasantly surprised to see the new remodel. Hotel is super clean, decor is unique, staff is above and beyond (hard to come by in this area). This is a quiet hotel but really great and easily accessible.

My mom and I visited Miami over a weekend in May of this year and we loved our stay at the Casa Claridge! The architecture is beautiful, the rooms very well-furnished and the staff very friendly and accommodating. Casa Claridge is a fabulous alternative to your typical chain hotel - The beds and furniture are antique and the fixtures unique. The rooms are quiet and well-insulated. The bar and restaurant, though a little slow, are fantastic - Drinks and dishes are delicious. (I especially liked the salmon breakfast dish.) The hotel features a reserved area of the beach with chaise lounges and umbrellas (umbrellas are an upcharge of about $15). The beach is beautiful and not too crowded - A nice contrast to the very busy South Beach. Speaking of which, the hotel is about two miles from South Beach - a quick jog or Uber ride away. Other reviewers have mentioned the construction in the area, but we weren't affected by it, as they weren't working on the weekend. During the week, unless you're spending a lot of time in the room during the day, it shouldn't be an issue. I highly recommend!

While on a last minute trip to Miami, I hopped on hotel tonight and booked Casa Claridge the same day I arrived. This turned out to be a home run from multiple standpoints.

This hotel was recently renovated and now looks like an artsy paradise. When you walk in the hotel you instantly see a modernly decorated living room which serves as a community room for all guests. It's decked out in red lighting, couches and modern decor all around.

The check in process to 45 seconds.. I know because I clocked it. Given that I you're in Miami and want to start enjoying the city, it doesn't get much better than that.

The room, which was a basic room with a queen bed, was perfect. Just the right size for two people, modernly updated with white touches, tile floor, and an interesting bathroom set up that houses the sink outside the actual bathroom. The room is just spacious enough and full of light. Though it's modern, the decor seems specifically chosen to represent the classic culture of Miami and display a Spanish paradise vibe. I thought it was perfect.

This perfect experience was then brought home by the bar in the lobby. I was fortunate enough to have the best mojito of my life made by the bartender in the hotel. This guy put as much effort into making a blueberry mojito as I've ever seen. It tasted even better then his exceptional effort.

Amazing hotel, unique decor, classic Miami vibe and an awesome bar.. What more can you ask for? Well you also get free access to the beach across the street via the hotel. Comes complete with a concierge who walks the beach ensuring you have all that you need.. Winning! The only slight negative to this hotel is that there is only one elevator and it moves quite slowly. Otherwise, complete home run.

Excellent experience here and an excellent option when in Miami. Short drive to the heart of south beach, but away from all the madness that comes with it.

Congrats to this hotel. You'll definitely see me again!

Stayed here for three nights and it was worth every penny. The staff was amazing and the service was exemplary. I loved every minute of it. We were truly made to feel at home and I would most definitely come again. The beds were comfortable (not the greatest because mine sloped a bit, but still cozy). The toiletries were nice. They have a nice restaurant/bar. The food was pretty great. Everyone really took care of us. I've never experienced accommodations quite like this before so maybe that could be why I enjoyed all of the pampering so much and I really don't have anything to compare it to but, again, the service was just outstanding.

Just checked in this afternoon after staying at another hotel down the street. Pleasantly surprised. Decor is quite remarkable. The courtyard is Spanish meets beach eclectic, and is filled with the most gorgeous orchid arrangements.  Had a drink at the bar, we were told we could go anywhere on the property to drink it, which I thought was a nice touch, and he would come find us to settle the bill. I, of course, chose to sit close to one of the beautiful orchid displays and sipped my yummy margarita.
Room was spacious and sunny.  I have a soft spot for all things old, classic, and beautiful, and this hotel has that vibe. Staff was more than pleasant.
Beach is across the street and through a small parking lot. Loved it, because the beach was barren at this spot, less than 40 fringed laden red umbrellas dotted the beach that belonged to this hotel. There is construction going on ocean side where two huge buildings are being renovated, so I imagine this intimate beach setting will not last long...
I highly recommend this hotel if you enjoy a more laid back, classy stay at Miami beach.

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE EVER.

When you walk in with a reservation and confirmation in your hand, this hotel refuses to get you a room and claims that they 'could not find the reservation in the system'

Will NOT recommend this place to anyone.

I traveled to Miami by myself and stayed here from May 8th 2015 until May 13th. The hotel is very pretty on the inside and very clean. The staff are very accommodating and all of them are nice and friendly! I stayed in a queen suite which was huge....I had a small issue with lack of hot water in my shower, I asked to have it fixed twice but  I'm not sure it ever got fixed, I took luke warm showers the whole week.

The area around the hotel is under a lot of construction and I'm usually a very light sleeper, plus my room was on the side facing the construction, however the noise wasn't as bad as I expected.

There is a public parking lot across the street from the hotel, it's free from 6pm-8am (I think) there's also another one at 27th and collier, otherwise if you have to park you'll need to find street parking. I didn't have a car while there but I figure that info is useful for people who will have one.

There is access to the beach directly across from the hotel (literally a 2 minute walk if that) with their own lounge chairs and towels for guests to use

There is no pool or fitness area in the hotel, but there is a boardwalk/running path on the beach which is super convenient.

The restaurant in the hotel has some really good food!! ( the empanadas, burger and the Apple cinnamon bread pudding were my favorites)  I ate lunch there most days. There's no breakfast that I saw even though the hotel website shows a breakfast PDF menu. There is a small deli/supermarket across the street and to the left of the hotel that you can get breakfast type things from.

I definitely recommend using uber to get anywhere in Miami/Miami beach  if you don't have a car. Super convenient, friendly, quick and cheap :) taking an uber from the hotel, it takes about 15 mins to get to south beach (without traffic)  about 10 mins to get to Lincoln road mall and about 20-25 mins to get to the shops/entertainment area at bayside (located in downtown Miami near the port of miami)

Overall my experience with Casa Claridge was excellent and I would definitely stay here again!
