Things improved after we had a different room. I have a different view of the hotel now. Nice management staff, perfect location, nice pool, excellent access to beach and in the middle of everything.

Hotel was lovely and Raimundo was excellent-- he upgraded us to an oceanfront balcony room when we arrived and learned we were just married. Likewise, we were treated to drinks at the beautiful bar downstairs.

My chief complaint was the service at the Blue Harmony spa. We booked a Valentine's Day special couples massage, but when we arrived for our appointment, nothing was in the schedule. We were then told they only had capacity for one of us to get a massage. Very disappointing and hard to not let it color my overall experience.

I stayed here on a trip to South Beach recently & I am seriously impressed & have not received such great service like this in a long time.  
Upon arriving in the lobby, the check-in staff was friendly & I was given a a nice room on a quiet floor with a balcony.  Unfortunately it had just been renovated & still had a slight paint smell, so as busy as they were that weekend for boat week, well the immediately took care of me & placed me in an upgraded room a few floors down.  I know they were sold out on this busy weekend, so I am really grateful for the new room.  I also managed to run into the GM, Nils Stolchlechner & he comped my drinks at the bar, which was he really didn't have to do & he said it was his pleasure & apologies for the 1st room.  I mean, I just haven't had an experience like this before.  I loved every part of this hotel & they were top notch through & through.

Outstanding hotel. My only complaint is the service at the pool. Everyone is super friendly but takes FOREVER to get any service. Waitresses are friendly but not attentive at ALL. We had to keep going to the bar to get drinks and food because the waitresses were just no where to be found! Please hire more staff :)! The bartender was super nice guy and very accommodating, didn't get his name.

I was surprised since I never thought of Wyndham being a high end hotel line. They've done a great job with the renovations and our room was small but beautiful (stayed in 1106). Make sure you at least get a partial ocean view so that you can relax on your balcony.

My only major complaint is that the drinks aren't consistent from bartender to bartender. My Saturday and Sunday Mojito (excellent) was very very different to my Monday one. They need to work on this with the staff ASAP. Especially when you're paying so much for a drink (and I am from downtown Manhattan so used to paying a lot). Otherwise it's a great newly renovated boutique hotel.

Just got back from my 3 day stay at Wyndham Shelborne in Miami Beach. Loved everything about my stay from the moment I pulled up on Friday AM to the moment I walked out Sunday PM. The valet was awesome (even walking out into the street to stop traffic so that I could pull out). The front desk staff was exceptionally friendly, George and Raimundo were who we dealt with most but we had a positive experience with everyone. The guys in the bar (which has a really cute pharmacy theme, across the hall from their equally charming library themed lounge) were awesome and the drinks were unique and delicious.

The room was clean and our view could not have been beat. Loved the products in the bathroom, "natural & organic" was on the label and they made my sun drenched skin and hair soft. The maids were friendly as well and cleaned the room nice & efficiently without disturbing our stuff.

Pool was beautiful and they offer ice cold water on tap! Expect music to be pumping at all times, although on Sunday they had a female DJ playing really awesome, easy to listen mixes which was appreciated - I even shazamed several of the songs.

Beach chair guys were also friendly and accommodating always trying to find us the best spot moving chairs around for us.

Five stars all around.

We stayed in the private residences inside of the Shelborne Resort and our time there was great.  The hotel is situated within walking distance of anything you may need (shopping, restaurants, cafes, convenience stores).  It is also right on the beach and they do provide beach service (chairs, towels, able to order drinks, food)

The pool is great and relaxing.  Get there early (before 11am) if you're looking to get a chair in the sun though b/c they fill up fast.  We were there on the weekend and they had a dj with music which was nice.  They also have drink/food service so you dont even have to get up if you dont want.  They will be more than happy to bring you fruity drinks while you relax.

The bar in the hotel was also nice.  My friend had a strawberry fennel drink that was AMAZING!

We booked a very last minute trip here and were definitely pleasantly surprised. We were told it was recently renovated but you never know what that's going to mean. The hotel was very deco - cool vibe with lots of great art, lighting and furniture.

This review is going to make it sound like I hated the place but I absolutely didn't. It just had some quirks that bothered me, and also some major highlights that would have me stay there again for sure.

The room we stayed in (although we had a great view of the pool/ocean) was very small. I don't think I've ever stayed in a hotel room that didn't have a chair that you could sit in other than the desk chair. It was one of those things that once you were in your room, you basically had no choice but to get into bed. There were so many things (bottles, food, drinks, glasses etc.) on the vanity and desk that there was barely room for your stuff. The room was EXTREMELY clean and that made me very happy. The bathroom was designed strange. The toilet paper holder was SO close to the toilet that your leg touched it while you were sitting on the toilet. They had atleast 10 further inches to put it on the wall and yet chose to make it touch the person. There was zero counter space - your toothbrush in a cup was about all that it could hold. The shower was amaaaaazing, as were the bathrobes. I wanted to love the room but it had all these little quirks that made it challenging to maneuver and feel settled.

The staff were mostly pleasant. There were certainly a few dining staff by the pool and at Morimoto (during breakfast) that were just totally spacey. We were definitely disappointed in the food options at the hotel. In the morning the had the little cafe upfront open where juices were $16. SIXTEEN DOLLARS FOR A BOTTLED JUICE. Nowhere in NYC have I seen a juice over $11. I couldn't even believe it. The fresh juice made at Morimoto was cheaper - how? why? The poolside menu was limited but I loved the kale and strawberry salad. I just wish the portion was human size not kids size especially for the price. I was ready for a second order an hour after eating it.

In coming to Miami and having tourists at your destination regularly, you should want to accommodate them for all their needs so that they don't need to go elsewhere for anything. All encompassing destination.

The pool area is great. Super lowkey. Great pool, great atmosphere and really excellent music. I shazam-ed many songs while I was poolside.

The bathroom by the pool was poorly maintained and needed someone to be replacing toilet paper and soap more frequently.

Only other issue was that not until five minutes before we checked out did we find out that there were yoga classes being taught. When we checked in, we were informed of the gym in the hotel but no mention of yoga. I would have taken a class or two for sure. That was extremely disappointing as it wasn't promoted.

Booked a spontaneous weekend in Miami to celebrate our anniversary and had the pleasure of staying at the Shelborne. The hotel was recently renovated... It's a beautiful Art Deco-inspired space, with lovely decor and light fixtures.

When we first arrived, we were assigned to a room on the third floor with two double beds. Not cool. Not at all... We immediately called the front desk and asked if there was anther room with 1 king bed available - and thankfully there was! The concierge switched us over to the tenth floor of the tower.

The room was a little small, but I guess that's just Miami real estate. The bed was about less than two feet from the desk, and there was a wing chair in the corner. The decor was really cool - I loved the wallpaper. Bathrooms were very modern, lots of white, with touches of gold and silver. The sink was a little too big for the vanity in my opinion... There wasn't much space for us to store our toiletries, so we left them on the dresser.

Hotel staff was nice, I can't really complain. The bistro in the lobby was convenient for morning coffee and snacks, but it was seriously overpriced.

The pool was great - definitely get there early to claim a pool chair. The restrooms next to the pool looked a little dated, hopefully they'll renovate that soon to match the rest of the hotel.

Location was perfect for us - on Collins Ave., so there's easy access to shopping, restaurants, and a short cab ride to South Beach. Definitely enjoyed our stay!

My extraordinary b/f took me on a last minute trip to Miami. It seemed like all of Collins Ave. was booked and for whatever reason the Shelborne still had availability. They also had a great deal on stays more than 3 nights, and I love deals--especially if I don't have to sacrifice much. I read the reviews here on Yelp and TripAdvisor before booking and there seemed to be a lot of mixed opinions but leaned on the good side. Well, I'm one that rarely writes reviews and I'm here to tell you that you won't be sorry if you book here! Unless you are unreasonably high maintenance, I don't see why anyone would ever complain of their stay here.
From our first encounter with staff to the last, we were treated like royalty! We caught a red eye from California and rolled into the hotel exhausted and disheveled at 10am. We knew we would have to wait a few hours until a room was ready for us, but we were just happy to be there and approached the front desk to see if we could store our luggage and change into our swim wear. To our pleasant surprise Raimundo, went ahead and upgraded us to an ocean view room that was ready! We were super stoked! So, next person, John our bellman escorted us up to our room on the 9th floor and gave us all sorts of recommendations and made us laugh a lot in the 5 minutes we spent with him. So of course, I wanted to check our room out, and although it seems very small, they made good use of the space and for two people it was just enough. Besides, are you coming to Miami to hang out in your hotel room or to get out and enjoy yourself?! The bed was super comfy, they provided robes, there was a fully stocked snack and mini bar (expensive), a giant TV, a gleaming white (small, yet functional bathroom) and a glorious view of the ocean! What more do you need? Not much. Anyway, outside we went down to the pool and although it was stunning, we couldn't wait to go to the ocean (Californians). There we were greeted by staff (all very sweet, I forgot your names, I'm sorry! Both of you were adorable with your little aviator glasses on) who prepared our lounge chairs for us (included in resort fee). Shortly after we got cozy, the gorgeous Veronique came to take our orders for food and drinks. We used the oceanside/poolside service throughout our stay and to our surprise the food wasn't unreasonably priced and it was all delicious! Definitely go with the shrimp tacos, cevice, the calamari and the frozen mango bites!! OMG!! YUM!
We eventually decided to go to the pool and lay out there as we did everyday. Wow. Beautiful pool, great temerature, plenty of sun (or shade if you want courtesy of an umbrella). And, for us a top priority is hot tub--which was just perfect. The pool staff were all super awesome!! I wish I could remember all of your names! Well, you all deserve a shout out! You're amazing. People, just be warned that the prime pool seating is filled up by 11-12, so if you're sleepy, go sleep by the pool. Worth it. We did it at Morimoto for breakfast, the food was great, again not outrageously priced, but the service was lacking--definitely different management than the hotel. Nice people though and they made up for our long wait (for nothing--it was early and there were maybe 3 or 4 tables filled) with beautiful pastries. Which, by the way you can buy in the hotel lobby. And yes, they do add 20% tax to your bill, NEARLY EVERYWHERE. Not just at this hotel, but almost everywhere you go. Guess that's the wrath of people being too cheap to tip. No biggie for us though, the service was always on point and we are good tippers anyway, so just make sure you don't double do it (I definitely did a couple times). Before I wrap this up, I just want to touch on the spa. I went down for a mani-pedi ($80+)--oh well I guess, we were on va-ca. But, my polish began to chip the next day, to the point of me just giving up about caring. I would recommend either, 1. Go big or go home and get shellac 2. Go somewhere local away from the strip 3. Do it before you get here, like I didn't have time too.
Want to give big thumbs up to the manicurist Gabriella, she was definitely great at her job, super warm and friendly, especially after I started speaking Spanish to her. It was my fault for choosing regular polish and then going into the pool and ocean shortly after. Oh well, you live and learn. In a nutshell, would we stay again? I'm a risk taker and I'd love to see what another hotel has to offer, but I'm also loyal and for several reasons, I would save myself the worry of, wondering if it'll be as good as the Shelborne, and just stay here again. There was nothing to complain about--I mean a little construction going on to improve the place, which they are doing a fabulous job of doing was never disturbing to us or even visually distracting. The service, the ambiance, the pool, the ocean front property, the food, the location, everything was remarkable! Btw, UBER was our method of transportation. My advice: BOOK IT!
