I stayed at the Z Ocean hotel for three nights. The hotel and room were very comfortable. I stayed with two friends on the PH level which included a balcony and access to the rooftop. The staff was very nice and very accommodating. Breakfast was good. I did have to pay additional for the third person staying in the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michelinge Can't wait to go back!!!
My girlfriend and I stayed at Z ocean for 3 nights for our anniversary. We have been going to south beach for years and this was by far our best stay, property wise. Z ocean hotel is the perfect combination of a high class luxury hotel while still maintaining a smaller boutique feel. The entire staff was extremely friendly and made us feel welcome at all times. The roof top terrace was incredible. We had so much fun within our room and terrace that we spent most of our time at the hotel. The hotel also offers complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas. For new comers to south beach, Z ocean hotel is in a perfect location, on ocean drive and in the middle of Espanola Way and Lincoln road two great locations for lunch and dinner. We've stayed at nearly all the surrounding worth while hotels and Z ocean has been our favorite by far.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eusjan Check your hotel bill..
After checkout I discovered that I accidentally paid a check from the restaurant, where I never was. I mentioned it to the hotel staff and manager but they told me they had me on security camera. After I asked how I looked like no one could give me an answer (this was all by phone), but they were so, so definitely sure it was me and my wife, although I have a check from another restaurant at the same time LOL, I never received my money back... Be careful with those friendly faces.

Front desk staff polite and welcoming. Great rooms and comfortable beds but didn't get a room as described in our booking and unable to change rooms started break in a bad way and we were not compensated at all in any way for this. Room was well equipped and spacious although housekeeping did not actually clean room every day and only left one small bottle of water in the room even though 2 were requested for the two guests on a daily basis. Over priced hotel for facilities. Swimming pool was small and not deep (range 3ft 9in to 4ft#. Great location for South Beach access - just across the road - with free #paid for in resort tax) sunloungers and towels on the beach. Also just 2 blocks from Lincoln Road shopping.

Fourth time staying at this property. The service and suite are always excellent which is why we always come back. Arrived early after our cruise and we were able to check into our room. Headed to the pool for some sun and fun. The pool attendant kept us comfortable. After a late lunch headed across the street to South Beach and used the complimentary lounge chairs and umbrella until the sun set. Ended the day on the private balcony watching the excitement on Ocean Drive. Couldn't be any better.

The customer service in this hotel is excellent! The front desk, room service, bartenders, cleaning staff, hotesses (except one on late sunday afternoon), everyone was friendly & willing to assist. The rooms were clean, comfortable & modern. We stayed in a suite with a hot tub on the balcony. The only draw back was the view!!
We overlooked the air condition units for the building next door, Yuck!!
They have their own area on the beach so getting a great spot is easy & the lounge chairs are comfortable, but there is no beach service.
The pool area is average, a little small. There are swim up rooms all around the pool, so it felt a little uncomfortable, like your in their room, when in the pool.
All in all it was a very nice stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mia108 Outstanding room, outstanding service.
I usually stay at a different place when i am in Miami. this time I got very lucky as i was there for a medical meeting that was held at the Inter continental down town Miami. That hotel was totally book so the company found this beautiful hotel for me. I was so happy with everything. The staff from the moment you arrive you feel like you are at home. The bar area is great. After my long day at my meeting I would go there every afternoon for happy hour and have such good time. I would definitely stay there again. I am already planing to go back in the next few weeks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ana10 Fantastic Views
The views are incredible. See the sunsets and then the night lights of Miami. Historic area of South Beach offers protected views to the west means no high rises so you can see the night lights all the way to downtown Miami. The Rooftop city view Penthouse unit 421 I got also offered very private hot tub as no one can look down on you while you are in it or sunning on your own private roof top sun deck. You get there by going up a spiral staircase from your lower deck off the bedroom. Very nice private lounge on your private rooftop deck. Has your own hot tub, sink, Bose stereo, refrigerator, lounge sun chairs, eating table with chairs..etc, etc...! Even has a private entrance for room service if you want diner delivered or champagne delivered to you while in the hot tub. Very nice. You can also stand up next to the hot tub and see the ocean so you have best of both, ocean view and city lights and sunset views with the privacy. The units on the ocean side have a high rise above you so not near as private while on your rooftop suite deck. Great people and car watching on Collins Ave too! Unit has refrigerator and sink in the room as well.

The hotel is super nice. We really loved this place. The customer service was awesome. The bar area was really nice. We ate at the restaraunt for breakfast and that was fine. There are a lot of other options for dining very close to the hotel. Try "my ceviche" for some great ceviche and fish tacos. The location was perfect. Beach was great. We really liked the padded chairs on the beach provided by the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel and we will be returning here next time we are in Miami.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lsh1310 Great luxury hotel
Everything about the hotel was what you'd expect from a small boutique hotel from the time you check in throughout your stay until you unfortunately have to leave. The room which was actually a mini suite & was very spacious ( especially having just spent 2 weeks on a cruise ship in a small cabin) with a great bathroom, lots of fluffy towels, comfortable bed and pillows, lots of light coming from the balcony which overlooked Collins Ave., etc. ; you can check the website for all the other amenities provided but we loved the location where we could walk to all the Lincoln Rd restaurants and Espanola Way or just sit and relax by the beautiful pool or walk to the beach close by. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by neil099 Fantastic hotel, fantastic location
We spent 2 nights here using reward points. This is a beautiful hotel just off the south Beach. The room that we were allocated at the front of the hotel was probably the best room we have experienced. It had everything you would ever want or need from an hotel room.
The location is fantastic, a 2 minute walk to the beach and surrounded by quality bars and restaurants. The area is very expensive so make sure that you shop around.
The staff were friendly and polite, particularly the Ukrainian bar man who gave us an insight into tourism at the south beach.

We stay at this hotel every year and think that the Hotel and it's staff are Excellent. The location is centrally located within walking distance to everything that you might want to do or see. The rooms are luxurious and very comfortable. Don't forget the mojito's at the breezeway bar. Bravo to Management and Staff for making this an exceptional hotel that we want to come back to every year. I think we have been here for the last 6-7 years.

Great location. Enjoyed the roof top hot tub. Treated us great with 2 glass of Champagne at check in, complimentary bottle of wine for platinum IHG Club, turn down service with 2 water bottles and chocolate. WSJ available free in the lobby. I like how one can exit the hotel on Collins or on Ocean Drive. Definitely want to go back and stay longer.

Z Hotel Made my 40th Birthday wonderful.....the king suite facing ocean drive was great (loved the bathroom and kitchenette), the complementary bottle of champagne,a good seat at the Miami Heat game and to set it off an in room massage. The staff wished me Happy Birthday when they saw me in the lobby. It was really nice.
Staff was professional, kind and knowledgeable for a single traveler. Beach right across the street. The hotel is in a great location for restaurants, shopping and entertainment that you can walk to them. You can walk the streets evenings and feel safe. The Z Hotel restaurant "The Porch"....... food and cocktails were very good.
Z Hotel i'll be back with my friends for a Girls Weekend!

Hotel is in easy walking distance to everything in South Beach and just steps from the beach. All the gay nightlife in South Beach is just a few minutes walk away. You can easily walk to the gay center and all the attractions in South Beach. Very close to the 12 Street gay beach.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dev81 Nice Hotel - Met but did not exceed my expectations in any way!
Stayed here for 5 nights as it was our final destination of our trip to the USA. Both me and my wife were tired by now from the sight seeing and walking in NY and Washington DC and due to its position it was a great choice of hotel where we could just relax. The location is superb with south beach just across the road and the we were surrounded with designer stores and lots of restaurants. As soon as we arrived we were very well looked after. We were given a glass of champagne on arrival and our luggage was taken straight to our room. Our room was a penthouse suite with a rooftop terrace and partial ocean view. The room itself was nice and clean (though a bit on the small side) however, the partial ocean view from the rooftop was very 'partial' indeed. I did ask for a room change to one with a better view as we were in a corner and other suites had better views but this did not materialise. The private Jacuzzi was a nice touch and i used it on our third day. I expected the jacuzzi to be nice and relaxing with plenty of powerful jets but it was like sitting a big bath tub. Maintenance came to the room just incase I wasn't using it correctly but they advised everything is ok and thats how powerful it is..I told them it was a bit like sitting in big bath tub and felt a bit hard done by as this place was by no means cheap. Overall, I still enjoyed the luxury of the rooftop as I we had drinks on the rooftop quite often. Was also perfect for sunbathing in the mornings. The restaurant within the hotel is also very nice and looks over ocean drive. A nice stay in essence but feel as though I paid over the odds and was definately bought in by the rooftop terrace pics on the website which #like most hotels# was far from the real thing.
As an IHG member the hotel to be fair did meet but did not exceed my expectations. If returning to south beach I would definately consider this hotel but would be very tempted to try elsewhere also.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Morty2 The way hotel stays should be.
Just back from 6 nights at the Z. Everything from check in to final departure was excellent. Staff patient, genuinely friendly and helpful with every request. Room very comfortable with great bed, aveda products etc. Restaurant Front Porch always busy at breakfast with great food at a great price .. Less busy in the evening but service and food equally good. Gym has a great open air feel to work off the excesses. The common areas funky and fun. All in all this is what I wish all hotel stays were like ( and sadly generally are not).
Location is great for both beach, Ccean Dr etc and shops .. Close to the action but not too loud. This was our second stay .. Both have been equally excellent .. And will not be our last. Go.
