Property's proximity to area nightlife venues can cause guest rooms to be noisy at night

Finding a place to unwind in frenetic Miami Beach is key for many vacationers, which is why so many travelers praise The Tides South Beach, located on Ocean Drive by South Beach. This property has a spa-like ambiance that makes it easy for its guests to relax in luxury. Decorated in a neutral color palette and outfitted with modern decor, The Tides South Beach also provides an iPod docking station, a flat-screen TV with a DVD player, a walk-in closet and a Nespresso coffee machine in every room. Extra touches like free beach setup and Wi-Fi access are covered by the property's daily resort fee. What's more, the friendly, accommodating staff receive frequent praise from travelers. However, some visitors warn that – even though the hotel itself doesn't partake in the area's rowdiness – noise from the street and nearby nightlife venues can often disturb a sound sleep. If you need to catch up on some R&R, spend your afternoon lounging by the pool, where attendants will serve you drinks and ensure your comfort. And at the end of the day, grab a bite to eat at The Tides Restaurant and Terrace.

Critic Reviews


A beautifully designed hotel with pomp-free service at all levels -- from housekeeping to porters to private designated assistants – The Tides brings rarely seen substance to the price tag. Though the hotel lacks direct beach access and the small pool is less than breathtaking, the huge, immaculate rooms more than compensate.



The Tides South Beach is an exclusive Ocean Drive art deco hotel of just 45 ocean-facing suites adorned with soft pinks and corals, gilded accents, and marine-inspired decor. The exceptionally tactful personalized service makes every guest feel like a celebrity, and the hotel looks like no other in the city.

Condé Nast Traveler


This Kelly Wearstler–designed 'chic icon' of Art Deco architecture on Ocean Drive, formerly called King & Grove, is 'first-class all the way.' Each of the 'modern and beautiful rooms' has a panoramic view of South Beach – some via private balconies – headboards and sofas in a mix of pastels, light-shaded woods, marble bathroom countertops, and finished-driftwood tables.
