Housing the Miami Herald’s “best block” in Florida, Española Way is a Mediterranean-style hub in the heart of South Beach, a breezy gathering spot for stylish locals, thanks to its boutiques and al-fresco cafés. The first designated Historic District in Miami, it’s cheerful and sunny by day and festive by night, illuminated by string lights. Sitting right on the celebrated street itself, El Paseo Hotel is a perfect base, whatever the time. Décor is modern, rooms are fresh, and you’re right in the middle of the action.
In fact, getting you assimilated into your new neighborhood is where this hotel truly shines. You’re steps from beachy shops, vibrant restaurants (including YUCA, a Cuban-American spot that offers salsa classes) and the tennis and basketball courts and soccer field of Flamingo Park. The Atlantic is just a few blocks over, and you can roll like a local, sunbathing at the hotel’s beach club. Indeed, there are less appropriate names for this stay than El Paseo – once you’ve checked in, dropped off your bags and begun exploring, you’ll be walking the walk in no time.
Good to know

The American Riviera. An Art Deco playground. Miami’s South Beach has been called many things, but one thing’s for sure – there’s no other place like it, and this hotel’s location puts you at the heart of some of the best local shopping, nightlife, architecture, restaurants and history. People watch, stroll down the Lincoln Road Mall, vacation in Spanish style on surrounding Española Way, soak up the sun on South Beach’s famous white-sand coast, dine at a sidewalk café, or dive into the legendary club scene. However you spend your stay, we promise you won’t want to leave.

I stayed at the El Paseo Hotel this Fourth of July !!
I lived in South Beach for many years , but never knew that this hotel existed on Espinola way. When I first entered the hotel everyone was very friendly and nice. (There are no elevators in this hotel, so the hotel Concierge/Maintenance will have to help you bring up your luggage. )
The day of my arrival it was actually the maintenance guy who helped me bring up my bags to my room. Nice guy ‘ but complained the whole time about having to do the concierge’s job of bringing up the guests luggage. Apparently he and the concierge were enemies and just going back-and-forth with each other the entire time. I did complain to the hotel staff about the disagreement and explain to them that if the staff had any issues with bringing up A guest luggage that it should be addressed with only the hotel management and not the actual guest. Hotel staff and Clerk were very accommodating and apologetic and did try to make up for it by sending a bottle of sangria up to my room with biscotti.
I did have some issues with the actual room itself the first day that I checked in the cable was not working , also the room had a very weird smell possibly a freshly dried paint. So when I woke up the next morning my eyes were a little swollen because I believe that I had an allergic reaction to the smell .
The second day I was there the toilet got stopped up. I assume that they were probably having some plumbing issues because it is a pretty old building and also the water in the sink did not go down as Quickly as it should’ve been.
I called down to the front desk who informed me that they will have their maintenance worker come up and try to fix it. When he came up to try and fix the problem. Unfortunately , he was not able to get it fixed on the first try and then informed me that I should call back down to the front desk and let them know that he will be coming back up later to fix it.( he also suggested that I wait for his favorite TV show to go off before I called again.) This whole process took about three hours before the problem was finally fixed.
Once all the problems and issues or finally over my stay did begin to get a little more comfortable. I think the hotel is in a great location in South Beach. The room is extremely cute and clean. They do a wonderful job of maintaining the property‘s exterior. The only issue is that they do have some Interior technical difficulties with the plumbing , and also they will run out of hot water if you do not wake up very early and take a shower before everyone else in the hotel gets up and starts to shower. I also heard a couple of other guests complain about not having any hot water either. Other than that I think it’s a great place to stay.
My other issue is that two days after I checked out ,they did charge my credit card for supposedly for “ resort “ fees that were supposed to have already been taken out with my deposit .
I called the hotel to ask about it , and they They told me that it was an old charge but clearly on my bank statement it showed that the charge was the exact day that I contacted the hotel 2 days after my check out date. I asked to speak with the manager Israel but this time he was really no help either. All he kept telling me was that it was a Posted transaction.
So I did take a screenshot of my bank statement to email it to him showing that it was in a pending status and that my card was charged just today and I never heard back from him after that. So I’m guessing that I will have to dispute this with my credit card.
Either way goes.... A guest Credit-card should never be charged two days after check out !!!
All issues and balances should be resolved before check out and before leaving the hotel.
Had a great time at the beach today. Thanks to demetrius and issac with the help of the umbrellas!! They were so nice and accommodating. The beach was right in front of the hotel with a lot of excursions readily available.
