Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Susw Excellent stay
We loved this hotel! We got a room facing the pool (on 3rd floor). The room was spacious with his and her vanities and a shower (no tub)
One cannot beat the proximity of this hotel to the beach .. it was perfect for us since we had our 2 yr old with us who wanted to go to the beach all the time!
The concierge is very helpful!
The hotel staff was very friendly.
We got fresh new towels twice, daily.
We would have liked a Ocean-view room
The front desk didn't work with us when it came to requesting a late checkout. The hotel was completely booked, so we had to leave at 12 noon.
Valet Parking was $35 per day (but it's Miami, you can't expect any less)
Overall, we had a great time and we will return to this hotel again, hopefully with an ocean view room!

Z Ocean Hotel was the perfect place for a long weekend for my wife and me. The location is right in the heart (and soul) of South Beach. We "beached" the car and could walk every where we wanted...a few blocks North to Lincoln Street Shopping, two blocks west to the Hispanic district (great restaurants) and one block east to the beach.
The total ambiance of the pool, bar and room with terrace made it the perfect place to experience the character of Miami Beach!

My husband and I stayed here four days. We stayed in one of the rooftop suites... AMAZING!!! The weather was absolutely wonderful the week we were there. So nice, we feel asleep on the rooftop bed. The room gave us the feeling of being at home in our own space. We only had one complaint... THE PLUMBING!!:( The toilet did not work properly the entire time there. Maintenance had to be called everyday. It was so frustrating, we sometimes just ran down to the lobby restroom. I did feel the issue wasn't properly addressed by management. Other than that... Our stay was wonderful! We have recommended to others.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by natasha15 AMAZING Staff and Beautiful Property/Location; In the Heart of South Beach
During the past weekend, May 31 - June 2, I stayed at the Z Ocean for my bachelorette weekend in South Beach. I cannot express enough how wonderful everything was. Living in Miami, and visiting South Beach often, I have lowered my expectations of customer service at times, but my recent experience at the Z Ocean greatly exceeded any of my expectations. Everything was EXCELLENT!
My fiance and I worked with Louis and he was responsive and willing to accommodate us, even after our multiple changes with our reservation. Louis was patient and made us a priority from our first contact with him. He made all of my requests (room type/view/etc.) a reality and everything was PERFECT!
Upon arriving at the hotel for check-in, we were greeted warmly by everyone, from the valet to the bell-hop (Johnel) to the guest services representative (Edgar). We were offered champagne and check-in was smooth and quick. Edgar was very helpful and answered all of our questions and was also very kind and patient. Upon both check-in and check-out, Johnel assisted us with getting from our car to our room. At the time of check-out, Johnel waited patiently while we brought our things to the door and even loaded everything into our car while we finished getting ready to depart.
Overall, the weekend was a success and one of the best parts was the Z Ocean. I rated everything as EXCELLENT and if I could have given it more than 5 stars I would have! I will definitely stay at the Z Ocean for any future events in South Beach and recommend it to my friends!

One of the very best Hotels I have ever stayed in!
The staff are all fantastically polite, helpful and will do anything to please.
Huge shame about the weather-but that was not your fault.

My family and I were treated like royalty at this hotel. The hotel is gorgeous. We loved everything about our stay. My only issue would be the additional fees that are automatically added to your bill. I would prefer this be included in my quote so that there are no surprises. If you are looking for a lovely room for a decent price, this is it!

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Mags80 A week at Z Ocean
Upon arrival received a glass of bubbly - very nice touch.
Room was big and I loved the double bathroom, my friend and I had our own personal areas to get ready!
The Shower was great - 3 x different options and the beds were very comfortable.
Only thing i would have liked would have been a kettle to go in the room as there is a fab nespresso machine but for the occasional tea there was no facility other than the microwave to warm up water - but that is literally my only nag..
Hotel's location is brilliant - central to everything and opposite starbucks!
The pool was small but cute - not very necessary when the beach is 5 min walk away.
Unfortunately we did not get a late checkout - however the manager was very helpful and made us very comfortable in our final hours prior to going to the airport.
Thank you Z Ocean!

Great stay at Z Ocean Hotel for a business meeting. Got to enjoy some beach and pool time also. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating to our group. Restaurant had a wide variety of delicious food and great service. The only "negative" from my stay is that it was difficult to maintain a comfortable room temperature. Several of my colleagues voiced the same concern. However, overall, I still highly recommend this hotel. I would love to go back for vacation sometime.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by ci04 Nice room and great service
I really liked the Z Ocean hotel. Our king suite was very nicely designed and decorated. We also loved having the balcony. The hotel has a superb location---it's a little further north on Ocean drive but still just across from the beach.
The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, especially those at the front desk and in housekeeping.
The hotel is showing some signs of wear. My hope is that it is maintained because it is a real winner.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Bob1626 Splendid Stay
Our stay was most enjoyable. The staff were great and very accommodating and professional. The dining and bar operations were excellent. Our only criticism was the generally poor lighting in the rooms. It was virtually impossible to read after dark. One bedside table had no lamp and the light on the other side was too weak. The very small lamp in the main room was insufficient for normal reading. The dim light around the bed served no purpose. These were the only negatives from a very special stay. In spite of the lighting problem, we will be back!

Veronica, the pool bartender, is extremely professional and makes the best mojitos ever! Although we never received nightly housekeeping service, they were very responsive to remedy the situation in the morning. The only negative was that the hotel allows smoking around the pool and in open areas.

This hotel is a bit pricey but is truly worth it! Centered in the heart of the bustling and eclectic center of South Beach, it's perfect walking distance to everything. The rooms were incredible with views of the city, and if your lucky, even the ocean! I highly recommend this hotel. The staff is very helpful as well.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by Pekka56 Good location but was it value for money
We stayed in this hotel for 11 nights. When arriving to hotel (6:30pm) our room was not ready. Then we were told that we got upgrade for the room but actually it was downgrade to the lowest level, on Collins Avenue side (no any seaview), behind 2 big palm tress (only 2 rooms with similr non-view from balcony, very dark). The room itself was big with good bathroom. Lights were lousy (as in almost every hotel nowadays), difficult to read anywhere else than on bed. Room cleaning worked pretty well though there was a lot of dust on shelves when we arrived. Balcony was never cleaned, black dust and dirt everywhere. Lobby and bar are pretty low and darkish, more bright lights would improve the feeling. "Gym" was disappointment with very minimal setup. Personnel was nice and friendly. Also location was good, hotel opens also on Ocean Drive side.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by CosmoK One of the Best Properties in South Beach
Overall, the Z Ocean is my favorite hotel in South Beach Miami.
The Z Ocean Hotel is perfectly located
In general, everything is within walking distance, even Lincoln Mall if you are up for it.
1) The Ocean Drive side of the hotel is away from the hustle and touts of hotel-based restaurants along Ocean Drive.
2) It's across from Lummus Park, on its northern end, with easy access to the beach and a major beach entryway.
3) Attached to the hotel is a popular and professional (no touts) casual restaurant.
4) The Ocean Dr. side has a Starbucks directly across the street.
5) The Collins side of the hotel is right at Espanola Way, which is a small tree-lined street with several boutique restaurants and cafes.
The rooms are fantastic
The room I had was spacious, modern, well appointed and comfortable.
My room had a spacious bathroom, living room, bar area with a single pod coffee maker, microwave and fridge.
A patio area included lounges, chairs and tables.
The king size bed was very comfortable.
I arrived earlier than the check-in time, so my room was not available, but I was offered a place to change my clothes if wanted to spend my time waiting on the beach.
Dealing with the staff did not require any manipulation on my part, they seemed to want to make my stay enjoyable.
Housekeeping staff were like ninjas, I would return to find everything straightened, cleaned, replenished and made up. I never saw them in the halls.
This is a modern hotel, with fresh elements like the indoor patio with casual furniture that has a bar, where you can order food from the restaurant.
There is a pool area with a bar, but I spent my time at the beach instead.
Beach service for guests includes lounge chairs and umbrellas.
The Z Ocean does not have a business area, or an area with a desktop computer and printer for printing boarding passes. They have an iPad at the front desk you can use to print to a printer that is behind the front desk. I had to attempt printing several times to finally get my boarding passes. I do use the passbook app, but the United app was not behaving, otherwise printing would not be an issue.
Note to Staff
When I was leaving the hotel I was in a discussion with the staff - if I should take a taxi to MIA or the number 150 airport bus. The staff was concerned that I would not make my flight, citing over an hour travel time versus 30 minutes for a taxi, but I took my chances - the bus trip took only 40 minutes and I made my flight in time.

The floorplan of the room was flawless. Enjoyed the location.
The 1st floor breezeway to Ocean Street was handy.
The fresh lemon/lime water cooler in the lobby was nice and greatly appreciated.
The parking valet was very quick and always helpful.
The beach/cabana service was good, too.

An absolutely fabulous experience!!! This was my husband and my first time in South Beach, I had planned this trip as a surprise 50th birthday present for him and I could of not asked for a better experience!!! From the moment you enter the hotel lobby you are welcomed with a smile and a complimentary glass of champagne!! Upon entering your room (we had a rooftop terrace) it was jaw dropping!! The room was beautiful but the roof top terrace was amazing.I strongle encourage the rooftop.The staff was more than accommodating especially Micky the concierge. He truly made our experience a memory. I highly reccommend The Z Ocean .
