This is not a party spot. This is where you go to really enjoy the original South Beach vibe. That 1930's, cocktail, social scene. Spend the day at the beach then nap on the porch with an afternoon cocktail and watch the tourists parade by to take pictures of our really cool, original art deco hotel. The staff will make...

Enjoyed a great getaway in South Beach and loved the boutique feel and look of HGV McAlpin-Ocean Plaza. The location was great and loved the various bars and restaurants in close proximity to the property. The 2 Bedroom Ocean View was amazing. Nice furnishings and plenty space. The beach was so close and loved the beach walk too. A fun...

The staff was wonderful! Ocean Drive was a little bit too crazy for us. We saw a couple kids get handcuffed .. drunk people walking the streets ... people on the ground getting sick from drinking too much. The jacuzzi and sunbathing area on the rooftop is very small so we missed not having a pool bc a couple of...

Great location only steps from the sand on South Beach. Great dining options within a quarter-mile radius. Parking is both complicated and expensive. I would avoid the no-option $43.00/Day Valet Service and try to negotiate a long-term daily rate with In/Out priveledges at the Condo directly across the street - which I was able to do for $25.00 - there...

My family and I have stayed in several HGV properties, and although each one is different with their own unique qualities, you can expect a certain standard with the Hilton name. I understand the Mcalpin is an old property, but wow! It should have been renovated once Hilton took over to update it to their standard. No pool, no balcony,...

Great location in South Beach. Across the street from the ocean, close to Lincoln Road, and the South Beach nightlife. Great staff, especially Tall Paul. Took three one bedroom units. Our entire family had a wonderful vacation. Can't wait to come back!

I would normally give HGVC South Beach an enthusiastic 4 stars - the location is perfect, and both the rooms and staff are decent. However it took 50 MINUTES for the valet to retrieve our car. The roof deck needs to be completely renovated. Finally, non-guests who are "friends of hotel employees" were also using the limited-space roof spa. It...

We are Grand Vacation Club owners and have stayed in a lot of HGVCs. Comparing to other locations isn't really relevant as this is an older hotel converted into condos. So in spite of being here during Spring Break (unintentionally) it was quiet and peaceful in the hotel. The only things we found lacking were the queen bed (we are...

Always a great place to stay. we got in before the 3 o'clock check in time expecting to store our luggage. We were pleasantly surprised that a room was available. Tall Paul, the door and bell man is a TOTAL asset to the Hilton company. He was such a help with things to do and places to see and how...
