This historically art deco inspired hotel has been refurbished, keeping with the spirit of South Beach, and sports all the luxuries that one can usually expect from Hilton. It sits with only a beautiful park, Lummous Park, between the hotel and the ocean. From the two bedroom suites, giant windows have ocean views from every room. A Starbucks sits 100...

This was a wonderful location to stay in Miami! Right across from the beach, a straight walk to all the clubs and restaurants on Ocean Drive, and an easy stroll to Lincoln Road. The hotel was very clean, and spacious, and provided beach towels. The staff was outstanding, very friendly and SO helpful! They offered a bathroom for us to...

Full Disclosure: We are members of the Hilton Grand Vacations Club so we might be a little biased but we really enjoyed our stay here. It's much smaller than most Hilton properties but fits right in on Ocean Drive. Rooms were clean, roomy and very comfortable. Kitchenette in your room and a guest laundry for extended stays.

My teenage son and I traveled with another father and his son each with a 2 bedroom unit. They were not near each other. In fact, they were not even in the same building. They were in separate buildings after 3 phone requests (3 months, 1 month and 2 weeks calling ahead to request them together). The property lacks a...

Thank you for your feedback about your stay at our property. I wanted to apologize for not being able to accommodate your rooms close to each other. Unfortunately, that is a very difficult challenge we face on a daily basis, due to very high occupancy. In addition, you had two two-bedroom units reserved, and there are only 4 in each...

This hotel is PERFECTLY situated within South Beach and all of its luster. Walking distance to the Versace Mansion, a great beach across the street and Lincoln Road Mall within walking distance. The hotel has IMPECCABLE security and the room was immaculate. The staff ALL went above and beyond for us and made us feel like royalty. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and...

Excellent location on north end of Ocean Avenue. Within walking distance to restaurants and bars, but at quieter end of the strip. Property is two old hotels that have been refurbished, so do not expect large rooms, kitchens, or bathrooms. However, the property is in excellent shape and a fine example of Art Deco architecture.

This hotel had no bellman at night. The room accommodation is pretty standard, but does not compare to the other Hilton Grand Vacation hotels I have been to. The male front lobby staff was not cheerful, I had to think twice to ask him favors. Nobody offered help in taking my luggages to the curb when I checked out.

I would not recommend Hilton Vacation Club to anybody. Hidden fees and you never can get a reservation unless you book Months and Months in advance. My time share is for sale. CHEAP.
