The Gale South Beach was so great. This is not your typical South Beach Hotel. This is a cozy and quaint hotel with wonderful hospitality. If you need to make any arrangements, reach out to Menin Hospitality. They are wonderful and so attentive. Also, Room Service with Dolce as your food option is always a winner!

Love the Gale! Right in the heart of everything that is South Beach but still noise free in the room. Room was nice size and balcony was a great feature. Additionally the nightclub, The Rec Room, was awesome and the hotel staff was very attentive.

We had overall an ok stay at The Gale South Beach. We had a balcony room which we loved but the room itself was lacking a simple thing as a chair and a clock. Other than the bed in our room with one bedside table there was just a small table that held a try with items you could purchase....

We stayed for three wonderful days at the Gale. The staff were excellent - very polite and attentive from the start and throughout our stay.

POSITIVES: Excellent location. Great decoration. Very friendly staff in the lobby. NEGATIVES: Extremely high water temperature in the pool, it was heated to a temperature higher than air temperature outside pool (on a hot day of approximately 28°C). Strong smell from the bar/kitchen when entering the hotel, it smelled like smoked food all the time - during all 6 days...

Overall I would recommend this property. The highlight is the staff. Everyone is super nice, absolutely everyone. Our room was a bit small but perhaps I felt this more than others as I in a power wheelchair. The hotel accessibility only gets a fair rating due to the egress from the building which is through the basement. Also no wheelchair...

We recently spent a long weekend at the Gale, and were very happy with the property and the staff. We arrived slightly early for check-in, but the front desk took our bags and directed us to Dolce, the restaurant attached to the front entrance. As we completed our lunch, the front desk called and said our room was ready and...

Gale South Beach is a modern and clean hotel with up to date marble showers and generous room sizes not typical of the art deco genre of South Beach. It does, however, pay homage to old Florida with vintage photographs and decor. Nice speak-easy type cocktail lounge with excellent cocktails and bartenders always quick with good conversation. Its location is...

I am currently writing this review as I can't sleep due to the music from the nightclub. The hotel has so many positive points, the staff, the restaurant and the rooms itself. However, the number one reason to stay at a hotel is to get a night sleep in a different area and this feels impossible and unforgivable for a...
