    I would not recommend the hotel very old

    Hotel facilities does not represent what you see on the picture at site, very old and noise place. Does not smell good and poor maintenance on the walls.

    Front desk agent was very friendly and she made the process smooth and easy.

    They didn't service our room for 2 days even after requested. No hotel extras such as robe, slippers, shaving kits etc. walls are extremely thin and you can hear everything next door to you. Someone walked in our room even with a do not disturb sign on. Wouldn't recommend unless you are desperate for a place to stay.

    Excellent location

    The AC was nice and strong. Room was nice. Location was even closer to the beach than we expected and, although touristy, in a really fun area with lots of restaurants. Also enjoyed the discount offered at many of those restaurants. Enjoyed having a safe to use to put our minds at ease. Recently remodeled room. LOVED having beach chairs and umbrella to use on the beach! That made our trip!

    The continental breakfast was full of cheap, simple carbohydrates with little else. We went twice during our week long stay. Housekeeping did not always restock our room with amenities, i.e. coffee, soap, etc. Would have been nice to have a dresser to put our clothes and the room was pretty small.

    How i felt

    The location

    -The room was advertised a a double budget. Got there it was only one bed. When i asked about it the front desk manager said he did not know what to tell me and no more rooms were available -Saw two or so small roaches in the room -There was a stain on the sheet when we first arrived -The room had a really old musty smell -Room was not cleaned everyday

The Clay Hotel is a Miami Beach icon with Art Deco style and a great location close to Lummus Park, the city center, South Beach, and the Botanical Gardens. Just two blocks from the Atlantic beachfront, it is surrounded by the area’s finest shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars. The Espanola Way is right outside, and many will love the fine architectural design work done by famed Cuban painter Pedro Amador. Only 10 miles from the Miami International Airport and 20 from Ft. Lauderdale International Airport, it is a good choice for those who hope to enjoy the beauty and excitement of Miami Beach.

This stylish property fits right into the neighborhood with its in-house nightclub, but it also features two popular restaurants and two coffee shop-style hot spots. It has a 24-hour business services center, valet parking, and a concierge desk to ensure a visitor has a trouble-free and enjoyable stay. There is also 24-hour front desk service and multilingual staff to meet the needs of all travelers. There is an ATM in the lobby as well as an onsite convenience store.

The 150 rooms are all modern and stylish with large and private baths, premium entertainment systems with HDTVs and satellite stations, climate controls, free Wi-Fi, a hot beverage maker, bottled water service, and luxurious bedding and linens. Some rooms even gaze out toward the waterfront nearby, as well.

The Clay Hotel is great for business or leisure travelers and captures the essence of early Miami Beach while bringing visitors into the modern world of luxury travel.
