location. However, I found the lobby was slightly dim and very quiet. There is a lounge and restaurant in the hotel, but in the middle of a Sunday afternoon, they were both completely empty. However, with all of Miami Beach's best nightlife and shopping within walking distance, there is not much of a reason to hang out in the hotel lobby, anyway. The rooms and bathrooms are small, but the hotel was built in the 1930's, so that's to be expected. Overall, the Colony Hotel offers a comfortable stay in a prime South Beach location.

The location is amazing - and that is mainly what you pay for. Right on Ocean Drive in the middle of South Beach’s infamous Art Deco District, the Colony Hotel is a landmark, which can’t be missed. If you are here to party, you will find enough clubs and bars in walking distance and the beach is just across the street. Don’t expect too much though. The Colony is an icon, but despite the charm of the historic structure and plenty of flashy and colorful details, it could need some updates. On the positive side: The Colony offers group rates and the obligatory resort fee is with $5 very low. Free Wi-Fi is available in all rooms. Also make sure to ask for the exclusive discount passes for local clubs and events.

Located right on Ocean Drive, the Colony Hotel makes for a good stay for those looking to take in the tourist sites and sounds, especially the high-energy nightlife. And given it’s location, you might think it would be wild and crazy inside but it’s not. It’s quite the opposite really. While the outdoor terrace seems to attract a decent crowd, the indoor bar and dining area does not. The interior decor could use an update as it’s old without looking stylish. While many of these Art Deco hotels provide a classic, vintage feel this one to me just seems plain old and slightly dumpy. But if you’re looking to stay right in South Beach without paying too much money for a hotel, this spot can work, just don’t expect too much from it - besides a place to rest your head and grab a drink (alone) at the bar.

The hotel is located on the infamous Ocean Drive, which makes it a desirable place for all Miami newbies an party-goers alike. The drawback is that you have to go through the outdoor restaurant and be bombarded with dinner and drink specials before even entering the hotel. Even then, the concierge was not at the desk, and a wait ensued to speak with someone. The rooms were tiny, with nothing special in regards to decor or ambiance. You're really paying for the South Beach location rather than any hotel amenities. However, if you want a good spot on the beach with drinks and dinner within a quick hop, skip, and jump, then this is the hotel for you. I would not recommend for families, but more for the college kids looking to adventure out on their vacation.

Don't plan on getting much sleep if you stay at this hotel. The street below is loud and the partners stay up late!
