Located in the heart of the Art Deco area on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach, the Pelican is the creation of Italian fashion giant Diesel and designed by Magnus Ehrland. This theme hotel features vintage furniture and objects throughout.
Pros: Interesting and quirky decor. Very good shower, comfortable room, surprisingly quit given its location. Staff friendless. Breakfast surprisingly goodCons: Parking is a hassle, can get tiring walking through an aggressively marketed bar/restaurant to get to your room. But pretty much every hotel on the strip has those issues
Pros: Staff is friendly and helpful.Cons: Rooms are too small.
Relaxing....Pros: Good free breakfast,2 free drinks at happy hour, free beach chairs and towels, great location,Cons: Water leak in bathroom when it rained a lot
Quiet unique Pros: The staff extremely friendly. The hotel very clean. The decor of the room was tasteful. Beach front a plus, free towels to the beach and 2 chairs at the beaching waiting on you. Great experience and would recommend to friends. Cons: No pool in the hotel.
Worth itPros: Great hotel for the price. NO BUGS!!! Everything was great except the bed.Cons: The bed was really HARD!!
Pros: Excellent location. If you want to be in the middle of the action this is a great locationCons: Rooms could use some updating. Most of the street noise was filtered out but there was more guest noise than I would have expected. Décor is definitely eclectic. They had incense in the hallways which was very strong - gave us both headaches.
4-days in Prime South BeachPros: The front desk staff was very friendly. The location couldn't have been better. The room was fun and well decorated. The amenities were awesome - free water, happy hour drinks, towels to rent, and 20% off restaurant food.Cons: The housekeeping service seemed to get to our room pretty late each day and the service at the restaurant wasn't the best.
Great for the price Pros: Loved that they gave free breakfast and two free drinks during happy hour. Plus the beach was across the street. Cons: The room was very small and outdated. The a/c wall unit was very loud and would walk you up when it would turn off and on. Was hard the adjust the shower to a good temperature and every two minutes while talking a shower it would go from cold the very very hot real fast.
