4 Stars are a joke, I would give it 2 STARS or lower a HOSTEL. We booked for eight days in June 2010, but we checked out the next day. The Clifton Hotel is the worst 4-star hotel I have ever seen in my 65-year life. The hotel just reminded me of when I was student forty-five years ago, staying...

I just returned from a weekend getaway in South Beach, where i stayed at this "hotel". This 'hotel" is the worst and most disgraceful "hotel" i have EVER stayed in my life. The "hotel" staf from time of arrival was RUDE. The lady at the front desk, whose name i can't remember, should not sit at the front desk to...

The Clifton Hotel is a welcome addition to Miami Beach. One can mark off every 'yes' box when describing the hotel: chic, hip, great location, amenities (especially when paired with its sister hotels) AND the owners have gone to great lengths to offset their carbon footprint. It is the first eco-friendly hotel in South Beach! Noentheless, the guest does not...

We selected the Clifton Hotel in Miami's South Beach through BookIt.com for its luxury look, Eco friendly concept and the 4 star rating advertised on your site. But we were very disappointed when my wife and I and our two girls checked in the evening of February 20th: the room was so tiny that only an uncomfortable stool (not a...

The hotel is on Collins right in the middle of the action, a block from the best bars and restaurants of Ocean Drive. The hotel itself doesn't have a pool but guests have access to the pool at the Carlton, one block away on Collins. The rooms are very small but clean and recently renovated. There is a resort fee...

The one thing good about the hotel is the rooms are clean. Here come the BAD things. The hotel room was EXTREMELY small and the shower floods everywhere. Poor lighting in the bathroom (dark and dim) Which when you need towels you better call before the cleaning service leaves b/c the staff behind the desk is too lazy to get...

Located in South Beach's art deco area and very close to the beach. The hotel as with all in the area are not "chain hotels", but small hotels. Our room was great and all that we needed. South Beach comes alive at night. If you want quite, less Hollywood like accommodations you might want to chose a different area. It...

Ok...So I spent a ton of time researching South Beach hotel before I selected this one. The early positive reviews, recent grand openning and location is what prompted me to to pick this place. I already knew what I was in for. If you are looking for a place to hide out in your room and not go check out...
