The Mondrian South Beach
Charlie Phynes Garcia - 08/2021
"Spent an overnight at The Mondrian South Beach on 07/23/21. Wonderful experience from the moment we arrived until the moment we left... I would also like to thank the concierge, Charlie, for all her help making sure we made the most of our short stay..."

The Betsy
Art Barraza - 08/2021
Leaving Miami speechless because of our first experience at The Betsy Hotel... We met the concierge named Art at the front desk (make sure you meet him if you do go) on the first day and was the most genuine and helpful employee and friend. He gave us so many helpful recommendations and was always excited to hear about our stories and experiences from that day..."
