Located in a quiet section of Miami Beach, the 102-room Hotel Croydon opened in June 2014, but its history dates back to the 1930s, when it was praised for its Art Deco design. Here, many amenities focus on healing and wellness, including a fitness room, an outdoor swimming pool, meditation sessions, kickboxing and holistic massages. Yoga classes are held on the rooftop sundeck, which has 360-degree views of the ocean and city. Back inside, the guestrooms feature mahogany porcelain tile floors, iHome docking stations, plush beds with cooling gel memory foam and tufted white headboards. The bathrooms offer C.O. Bigelow toiletries. The Tavern restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, cooking up entrees such as pan-seared mahi mahi with jasmine rice and broccoli rabe, short rib burgers with caramelized onions, and steak frites with chimichurri sauce.
In the Area
There aren’t many entertainment options in the immediate area, but the beach is just across the street and sun chairs are provided for hotel guests. Several golf courses are just five minutes to the north. Rather flex that plastic? Lincoln Road Mall, a hub for shopping, is about two miles south. A variety of water activities are sprinkled throughout the city, including paragliding, paddleboarding, kitesurfing, kayaking and sailing. For a unique, off-the-path attraction, history buffs should explore the Ancient Spanish Monastery, about 10 miles north. Those seeking a taste Miami’s sizzling nightlife should head to Mansion and LIV, two high-energy clubs in South Beach. For dinner and cocktails, the Forge restaurant and wine bar has an elegant setting and farm-to-table menu selections.
How to Get There
Pros: great location, nice size and clean room, pleasant reception staff, beach access, rooftop
Cons: Way overpriced restaurant, pool area is very shady, constant shortage of clean towels, long wait for elevators
This hotel was a definitely a pleasant surprise! Franklin at the front desk was such a pleasure and extremely accommodating! I needed an early check in and he understood the need and delivered with no hassle. The entire hotel is very clean and the rooms are modern and very nice! It is not located right near South Beach but a quick Uber ride will get you there quickly! I would definitely stay here again! Thank you Hotel Croydon, you guys are awesome!
I was travelling by myself and booked one night accommodation at the Hotel Croydon.
From the moment I stepped foot into the Hotel I was made feel welcome, firstly from the reception staff Patrick and Steven. What a great customer service team.
My room could not be faulted. Clean and very comfortable.
The views from the rooftop are to die for and only a very short walk to the infamous Miami Beach.
I then dined in the Restaurant and was served by the beautiful Emilyz. Emilyz went above and beyond to ensure my dining experience was one I would not forget. Thank you also to Arianna, the Floor Manager for your service as well.
Overall a nice stay. Free shuttle from airport to hotel. Shuttle from hotel to airport is also free but needs reservation. Hotel staff is nice, the front desk gave my mother a rose because we check-in on mother’s day. At first they gave me a room in which the last guest still haven’t left... Taught me a lesson: knock the door before swiping the card. Then the front desk gave us another room and it’s nice. Hotel is 1minute walk away from beach. The rooftop sun deck is pretty comfortable.
We were very pleased with this hotel overall for our stay in Miami Beach:) the room was very nice, a bit small, but anything would be with a toddler running the show... the restaurant was good and served breakfast until 2 which was nice... the only thing that I didn’t like was that I had to make a second reservation when I decided to extend our stay, because for some reason it was cheaper to do it online then when I tried to extend our stay with the front desk... other then that, we love our stay. Real close to everything and literally right across the street from the beach!! We will def be going back:$
