Retro style gets a modern makeover at The Gates Hotel South Beach. Within this cheerful base, a Doubletree by Hilton property, it’s all pinks, aquas and navy blues, arranged in abstract artworks and bold prints, alongside crisp whites. The Continental restaurant has its own updated mid-century vibe and serves refreshing cocktails and all-day eats beside the street, complementing the offerings in the lobby. In your room, enjoy contemporary conveniences like an mp3 alarm clock and 42-in. HDTV.
Keep with the old-meets-new theme as you step out and turn onto Collins Avenue, one of the most famous thoroughfares in the nation. Here, you’ll find dozens of Art Deco landmarks, plus a hip 21st-century scene: cutting-edge restaurants, crowded dance clubs, new sushi joints and shops with the latest in bikini styles. And if you want something that pairs perfectly with throwback glamour and present-day flair alike, simply head to the beach – just the next block over.
Each and every room shows off updated retro style, with light woods, colorful artworks and walls of white. Slip between the the crisp sheets of your plush bed, and browse your 42-in. HDTV’s channels. If you need to print something, simply log into the hotel’s Wi-Fi network and send it to the printer wirelessly.
The Continental is relatively new but already a bit of a Mid-Beach icon, its red lettering popping against the baby-blue Miami skies above Collins Avenue. Its food and drinks share the décor’s fun, fresh flair, from the avocado-salsa fresca omelette with lime cream and cotija to the cheesesteak egg rolls (it is, after all, a Philly export). Cocktails are served here – we recommend the peach-vodka-and-Tang Astronaut – and in the lobby.
In Mid-Beach, things are a little quieter than on next-door South Beach, but make no mistake – this is one of the coolest, if not the coolest, Miami neighborhood right now. Nearby are other fabulous dining options, like cocktails at hip The Freehand’s James Beard Award-nominated bar and Sunday brunch at SoHo Beach House’s Cecconi’s, and for swimming and sunbathing, the Atlantic is just one block over. Set aside an hour or two to take a memorable stroll, mouth agape, through the unbelievably decadent Faena District.
How to Get There
The room was very modern and clean. The bed was also quite nice. The wifi was good.
The bad part of the room was a very noisy HVAC system and worse the lighting in the room was not well laid out. the switches for the lighting were to far away and there was no light on the desk. It needs an update on lighting.
The hotel itself was nice and friendly and the location was good.
The hotel is placed in a great location. There are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. There's a 10 minute walk to the beach. I appreciate that the hotel includes a chair and towel for the beach. The room was very spacious. My room faced the pool, which was very nice. I didn't hear any noise from the pool. Great amenities. The breakfast choices are slightly limited. Overall, great property.
My family and I was coming back from cruise ship in carbine Island and we stop in Miami for two day we stay at Gate Hotel South Beach Miami we arrive early the Hotel staffs are very helpful to us until our room are ready we impress by the cleanness of over all the Hotel the room the pool i will recommend very one visiting Miami South Beach!, Gate Hotel by Hilton is the place to stay I will stay in this Hotel every time I'm in Miami, check it out.
This Hilton property is a power user of social media to improve customer experience, and sets the bar high for other properties. Early check in was appreciated following a drive up from the keys. Room was clean and nicely appointed.
The pool was busy, but we found chairs mid afternoon. Service at the bar outside was prompt and friendly. Food from the resturant was good, and served with a smile.
The beach is only 1.5 block walk from the hotel. Nice to have chairs and towels, and paid a bit extra for an umbrella.
Breakfast buffet was busy, but the servers were friendly. Food and coffee could have been restocked a bit quicker.
Overall great stay, price and location.
Beautiful property The Gates hotel is great for a romantic getaway. My wife and I had an awesome time! Everything was clean, neat, and presentable. Everyone working there was exceptional. Harold was funny and very engaging. Would definitely return in a heartbeat.
