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
Cons: We were traveling with our 1 year old baby and have arrived at the Hotel Croydon on September 20th, 2018. Everything went well in check-in, although it took a reasonable amount time to get our room. Nothing too much out of the ordinary until we found an USED CONDOM under the bed when searching for our babies toys. We informed the hotel and wrote an email to the front desk but nobody seemed to care or even give a response to the email. All that we were told was that they would send housekeeping up as if it was a simple, common thing. Disappointment!
Pros:The room we stayed was pretty good in size and larger than we expected.
Conveniently located on the free trolley bus route north and south , with free MIA airport transfer and on $2.25 Airport Flier bus Number 150 route.

I loved staying here! This hotel is quiet and lowkey because it's a bit further from the main strip on south beach. I was in town just to go to a party at Liv so it was perfect because it is right down the street from the Fontainebleau. The front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is a pool at the hotel and they have a beach area with complimentary lounge chairs a block away. This part of the beach really is nicer and cleaner than the 8th-12th street area I usually stay in. They also have a bar and restaurant in the lobby. And the rooms are very spacious with a floor-to-ceiling mirrored closet which was perfect for getting dressed to go out. I would definitely stay here again!
We had a great time. We were unable to enjoy our stay fully due to Storm Micheal passing by and making it very windy. Croydon has a very friendly and helpful staff. The room was great with view of the pool area. The only draw back of that room was that it was next to a staff room and some nights would wake up to noises. But the room was awesome. Even though we didn't get to enjoy the beach like we would of liked due to the storm, but Hotel Croydon is just across the street from the beach. The hotel also has a roof top that looked very nice, but because of the storms wind we couldn't enjoy it, next time. We also liked that it wasn't far from South Beach and could get there with a free trolly ride. We also enjoyed the Tavern restaurant thats right in the hotel lobby. A bit pricey, but for the convenience of being open 24/7 it's not a bad deal. We didn't stay in the hotel much. We just showered and out again, but the room was well kept. Thank you Hotel Croydon staff for a great birthday weekend.
The hotel was convenient for our family while a family member was being treated at Mt. Sinai.
The staff was considerate and polite. The restaurant and bar adjacent, The Tavern featured fresh food and drinks.
