I was surprised to find such a quiet Art Deco hotel located right behind the Clevelander, which is its sister property. Since the pool at the Clevelander currently has a stage over it, guests there can come over to use the pool at Essex House. It’s small, but is all you need to cool off. (Besides, the ocean is just a block away). The lobby is a peaceful little spot for taking five from the South Beach mayhem—it has lots of couches and a beautiful old mural on the wall. Lots of guests like to have their morning coffee on the covered porch, too. The suites here are good for sharing and have Jacuzzi tubs. With its historic roots and quieter vibe, this is the kind of place I’d recommend for family visiting Miami—the kind not necessarily looking to party.Recommended for:

Great location. In the middle of all actions while quiet enough that I can still sleep through the night. Beds are very comfortable. Go for it if you can get a good price. For the price of $170 per night that I paid. I was satisfied w. the value. However, I would not paid more for it.

Beautiful art deco hotel that feels like a private garden resort, yet sits just off the beach from the hustle and bustle of its famous sister property, the Clevelander. South Beach just may be the only place in the world where I would choose against the hotel in the heart of the action. Give me the quiet relaxation of the Essex any day over the raucous parties and beach scene of the Clevelander. Yet, as they are sister properties, all amenities of both hotels are open to all guests, and in reality, the party is never really far away. Lovely, centralized spot in South Beach. Perfect little hotel.
