The hotel looked great on Expedia page. Upon arrival was impressed by the lobby design. The rooms looked nice, but you could tell that they were remodeled to look nice and new, but in reality didn't do a good job of fixing the old problems, just covering them up. The doors on the closets had so many layers of paint...

We appreciate the time you took to share your honest feedback, busytraveler2014!! We have recently had several renovations here at Dorchester. The majority of our guests have great things to comment about regarding the mattresses. We understand that we cannot please everyone with the plushness of the mattress, but we do try. Our pool is indeed heated, but not heated...

I loved this hotel. We booked one night (a Friday) on trip advisor, and arrived to a super clean, cute hotel in South Beach. No crazy noise at night, a little noisy in the morning since we were near the lobby, but other than that, this place is perfection. The courtyard is gorgeous and the staff was fabulous. We felt...

Hotel is nice and quaint. Not too far from south beach. Rooms seemed clean. Parking is limited and quite expensive. The value of this hotel on a nightly basis should be around $100/ night. Overall, good place to stay and surrounded by some of the high end hotels in the same area.

I had a few days off and decided to go to Miami to relax and look around. The Dorchester is a great value for the price. The building is in great shape, decorated in a comfortable, retro beach style. The courtyard is beautifully landscaped with nice chairs and tables, candle-lit at night. Cute little bar with happy hour drinks for...

Stayed there for one night as a solo traveller as I had a 24h layover there. I decided to get a good nights sleep and visit Miami (South Beach) instead. Bit of a disappointment as the hotel was not well maintained and somewhat run down. The girl at the front desk was very blasé and not friendly at all. Carmen...

For starters, this hotel is located perfectly for exploring Miami. If you want to be close to the beach, and have a cheap UBER ride to some of the nightclubs then Dorchester is perfect. I also really liked the outdoor area, where you were able to sit back, have drinks, and listen to music. Some of the cons were, this...
