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
The price was right and the location was great. No complaints whatsoever. This says my review has to be longer, but I honestly don't have anything to add. And apparently longer. Oh, we do like eating at the Tavern so that was convenient too.
Excellent boutique hotel about $8 Uber from south beach attractions. Comfortable bed, clean room, good A/C (though centrally controlled a you can’t change the temperature), nice food at their restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. The checkin area is a bit tight, but functions fine. Would definitely stay here again. A steal for the price.
Close to the beach, spacious and convenient room, and great value. Want to point out Marcus at the front door services. He was very helpful and nice. Complimentary shuttle service to the airport was helpful.
