We had a great time at the Pelican Hotel, you are right in the middle of it ALL! We were there for Deco weekend and Ocean Drive was closed for cars so it was great walking down the street and seeing the vendors and other attractions. The suite was very clean and we had a great view of the ocean....

Great wooden floors and the interieur is done with a great taste. Each room it's own style and is decorated with a lot of love. People at the reception are friendly and helpful. Thanx for the lovely stay!

And, I was hoping my favorite restaurant on Ocean Drive would not let me down. Great news--> The menu is awesome, and the wine is...

Thanks RV for taking time to share your experience at Pelican. We truly hope to see you back should your travels bring you back to South Beach.

Perfect hotel in the heart of Miami Beach. Clean, friendly staff, and great location! The King Suite Ocean View room was unbelievable. Free breakfast, and the food was absolutely delicious. We kept talking about how perfectly the eggs were cooked...made to order and spot on every time. Walking distance to the ocean, plus included free beach chairs with cushions.

The pelican hotel was a great experience. It's location on Ocean Drive is right in the heart of everything! Every staff member we came in contact with was friendly and helpful, especially the two gentlemen at the front desk! The designs throughout are fun and quirky. You do get the two free drinks at happy hour and free breakfast-both great!...

The best thing here is the location, if you want to be in the heart of South Beach, across from the beach. Around you there are some classic party places such as The Clevelander and Mango’s. I went twice because sometimes (summer) they have some discounts and for a night in South Beach it’s a good option. Parking is crazy,...

I stayed at the Pelican Hotel for four nights and was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable my stay was. First off, the location is great. Right on Ocean drive, the hotel is across the street from beautiful Lummus Park and Miami Beach. The decor for each of the rooms is unique and full of character. I stayed in the Up...

Room and facilities: room was too small to open a large suitcase; nice decor but impractical oversized and uncomfortable metal bistro table and chairs - odd. At over USD 350 it's really overpriced. Breakfast only I choice allowed resulting in having to pay for items because still hungry. Service hit and miss. We were late for happy hour and were...
