This hotel is overrated! I got food poisoning from the mexican restaurant by the pool called Lucy's. I was down for 48 hours. The hotel pool was always out of pool towels. This is unacceptable considering the daily resort fee. The power kept going out in our room. Apparently you can't dry your hair with lights on in the bathroom. I was using too much power. I had to have the front desk flip the breaker 3 times. Finally I gave up and dried my hair in the This place is a great location..but there 100's of other hotels to choose from.... I did want to the mention that the staff was very nice!

Thought the room was good , the pools was awsome and the beach was amazing It was a little pricey as we talked to a group who were paying the same as us and they had 2 levels and were overlooking the pool and beach. The food at pool was real good , and lee and his asst we're very helpful. We were there with a 4 month old baby and we found it very quiet. All in all great place.

Owner's reply:

I appreciate the positive comments, so thank you for this...but with respect to pricing, one thing that can be said about The Shelborne is that pricing is all over the board due the number of units offered privately and those offered by the Hotel Management Company directly.

Add to this that the size and quality of the units vary as do the amenities offered in different units. As an example, my two units at The Shelborne offer free 12MB WiFi; the Hotel does not have free Internet which can cost more than $10/day.

And the Unit rented by this guest is one of the largest floor plans in the building, excluding the Hotel Townhouses, which are almost always very expensive.

The apartment is very convenient located. Just 2 minutes walk to the beach and about 5 minutes to lincoln road. Our flat was exactly as appears in the pictures. Mr. Lee and his assistant Alex are trustworthy persons. We very happy of our stay. Only 4 out of 5 because the apartment was clean but there were still some hairs around.

good location, hotel needs work

August 2, 2011

3 girls stayed in room 331 at the shelbourne for 4 nights. the room had 2-double beds, plenty of space for sleeping and enuf space 2 put our stuff. the hotel was super easy to get to from the airport on the "miami flyer" bus, $2.35 each way. hotel lobby was clean but needed more furniture. you can tell there is construction going on in the lobby, but it was neat. the pool was open and ok to use. appeared to be clean, but we went to the beach everyday so we didnt use it. the elevator worked well, but needed to be cleaned...there was always something on the elevator floor. our room was right near the elevator, so all night we heard "ding....ding...ding " from the elevator. our room faced collins ave., so there was noise from the outside, but we did sleep. the room was ok, bathroom & closet area needed to be remodeled. hotel was in a great location to get to the beach...we could walk there in 2 mins. Bring $$ to rent a chair and/or umbrella. beach was gorgeous! hotel was walking distance to everything. you dont need a car. this was our 1st trip to SB and we loved it, but i would only stay at the Shelbourne again if i was in a newly remodeled room.

Great Location and Price for Ocean View Room!

June 22, 2011

My husband and I stayed in the ocean view room on the 6th floor, and we actually had a great view of the ocean! :-) This was our first time renting a private property, and both Mr. Lee Baron and his assistant were great and made the experience was a very pleasant one. Although this room is older, it was clean and stocked with dishes and extra towels, and the bed was very comfortable. We were provided with beach towels, chairs and an umbrella, and since the pool was a little small, we chose to walk right on by and hang out at the beach! The free internet connection was slow, but we were able to take care of business. The hotel itself is in a perfect location and will be fabulous once all the renovations are done. If you are looking for a clean room in a prime beach front location for a great rate, I'd definitely recommend contacting Mr. Baron!

Great Location

May 25, 2011

The location of Shelborne is perfect for walking wherever. Close to so many activities & stores, plus great eateries. Our room was clean, comfortable, and plenty of room for the 4 of us. The only thing that us 4 needed, was a foot stool to reach the Microwave, located above the refrig. We are between 5'2" & 5'5", so it was a bit difficult to reach. Small & minor concern. The pool was nice & clean. The owner was very accommodating & genuine. We are already talking about a longer stay, hopefully next year. Thanks Lee for everything.

Best value for money!!!!

I just want to share my experience staying at Lee's Ocean View condo at Shelborne Hotel.. Just FYI I am a very demanding and picky person, and I have always stayed the least at 4* hotels in Miami and Shelborne hotel and Lee's property exceeded all my expectations and I was pleasantly surprised with the coziness, cleanness, and actually the size of the room! It had all the devices we needed, as well as the separate closet room!!! There were 3 of us and we had all the space we needed! Keep in mind that in reality the property looks much better than in the pictures! For the money we've spent it was the best deal ever and definitely we are looking forward to our next stay at Lee's condo!!! Lee was very nice and helpful and very reliable and trust-worthy! Upon our check-out we have received our security deposit back shortly! P.S. The location of the hotel is just the best anyone can imagine! It is surrounded by fancy 5* hotels, has a direct access to the beach as well as it's just 2 mins walking distance to all the hot spots of Miami nightlife! Have fun and enjoy! Olga

The linens were fresh and the unit was extremely clean!! This made our stay extremely comfortable. The unit also was stocked with plenty of fresh bath & beach towels and even a Beach Umbrella! The beds were cozy and having the kitchenette stocked with glass ware, plateware, silverware, cups, and so much more in the room really helped save on eating out all day. Great closet space also!! The building is amazing itself!! I would definetly stay in one of these units again!!! Thank you sooooo much!!!!

Great location, service, value. We'll come back!

Next time I'm in South Beach I'll book this apartment (or another one from Lee). A few reasons why: - Great location: right at the beach, close to Lincoln Rd - Sunny (with a big window), with everything we needed (kitchen, dining table, umbrella for the beach) - Since it's at the Shelborne hotel, there is a nice lobby with reception, security, pool, etc. There was some construction going on in the building, but didn't bother at all. Lee was extremely helpful, professional, and available, from the moment we booked the room until we checked out. We had a couple of special requests, and Lee helped us promptly, and very effectively. Can't be happier with our choice!

Great studio suite room

February 13, 2011

Plenty of room to move around, mini kitchen is great, 2 couches, wireless access and best of all - a very short walk to tons of shopping and restaurants, and convention center. Pool area construction almost finished, and it will be really nice, staff was quite accomodating, pool was open but a little noisy. Major renovations have been great. It's been 4 yrs since we stayed here, and again we were really pleased with our stay. Love the boardwalk and beach right outside the door.

Clean, Convenient and Affordable!

February 1, 2011

My partner and I come to Miami every year for approximately 2 weeks to unwind and relax. This year was the first time that we rented from Lee and it won't be our last. We decided to take the larger suite that he offers and were pleased with it's cleanliness and convenience. We tend to hang out around Lincoln Road and Washington and the location was super convenient and comfortable. The best part of this location is that you're right on the beach and it's very affordable. We've rented other condos in the past from other owners in South Beach but they were smaller and had some other issues. This condo was great for us and I'm sure you'll enjoy it as well.

Great vacation rental in South Beach

January 4, 2011

We, a party of two, stayed at this condo for 5 nights while vacationing in Miami the Christmas week 2010, and had a really great time. The rental transaction with the owner (Lee), from reservation to receiving security deposit, was extremely smooth. We stayed in a city-view corner unit facing Collins Ave. It was really nice that we could see, while lying in bed, the time and temperature displayed 24/7 on the top of a tall building on Lincoln Rd. And it was a pleasant surprise that we also got a decent view of the ocean from the room (remember this is a corner unit). The room was cozy and very clean, with freshly cleaned sheets/comforters. And there were enough linens to last 5 days. The unit is not huge, but it uses space efficiently and provides ample room (shelves/dresser/nightstand/walk-in closet) for your belongings. We dined out most of the time, but there were microwave, toaster, refrig, and utensils available for use. Of course, the best part of this rental property is its location. It's right on the beach, several nice restaurants steps away from the hotel/condo building, and Lincoln Rd is two short blocks away. There is a great French bakery two blocks away south on Collins Ave for breakfast. No doudt that we would love to stay at this unit next time when we visit Miami again.

great location, decent price

Although the hotel is a little old, the location is great! walking distance to the night life in Lincoln Road, stepping out to the south beach. I love the mini-kitchen in the hotel rooms, which is beyond my expectation, you can find all you need there if you want to cook. Mr. Lee Baron is friendly and trustworthy. he helped me get the good deal for parking if you have a rental car, and I got my deposit back quick. I might have a little concern to deal with an individual owner before I got there. it turned out the check in and check out process were very smooth.

I cannot imagine finding a better value based on the location. The condo was clean and well equipped. You are steps away from the beach and minutes from the nightlife of South Beach. When I return to the South Beach area I will return to this great value, great location condo.

Great Value on South Beach !

Very easy booking process that gave me confidence everything was Ok before I arrived. Excellent apartment with all you need for a great vacation. The views were incredible and the hotel facilities on site were first class. Location was perfect for all the sights on South Beach and we loved the on site fitness room which was always empty and free to use ! The Concierge was also helpful with recommendations and tips on what to do. We also met with the Owner Lee who ensured our stay was perfect and stress free. Will definitely use this rental again ! Great value when you compare the price of this rental with a hotel bedroom !

I was stranded in miami during the hurricane sandy so I had to stay at a place that's most affordable. this place is very good for a single person or a couple. it's very close to the beach and Lincoln road as well. Tho the place was not a big place, I think two is the max, it's comfortable and clean. I would def come back here next when I visit Miami.Hight recommend this place to you.

From John W. "Must go place in Miami!!"

This is the second time my girlfriend and I worked with Lee and can't thank him enough for all the professional services and customer care he, and his staff, provided us. We stayed at the studio suite in the Shelborne and it felt like home. The place was very clean, had all the amenities (in room) that was needed (with extra amenities), and access to all the amenities of the hotel (towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, etc.). We have made the Shelborne our go to spot anytime we plan on coming to Miami and Lee our go to guy when visiting. If anyone wants to come to Miami, Lee is your guy to work with. Thanks Lee for making both of our visits in Miami a wonderful experience!!!!!

My Girls and I stayed in suite 621 at the Shelborne Hotel. We were greeted by alex who works along side of Lee. very polite both he and Lee. He assisted us with taking our things up to the room. Showed us where everything in the suite was. Let us know that if we needed anything not to hesitate to call. The suite was very pretty. It was stocked with plates, glasses, cutlery, microwave, and fridge. The location was very conveient smack dead in the middle of all of the action on Collins ave. We were able to walk right out of the back off of the pool to get right to the beach. I cant wait to start planning our next trip. We will definantly being renting from Lee only using one of the larger suites with an ocean view. I highly recommend renting form Lee because he went over and beyond to make sure that we had a early check in, and a late check out if we needed it. The pic of the pool is exactly what it looks like when you get there. I only have one complaint and it had nothing to do with Lee, and and that was that they had a pool party on a Saturday afternoon and wanted us to sit up top way closer to the darn sun. The people who i guess purchased tickets were able to sit poolside. Needless to say pretty women in nice swim wear we were able to keep our seats pool side with those who purchased tickets with bottle service might i add. ;;) thanks again Lee for making myself and the ladies stay at the Shelborne a trip to remember...

Miami was the last leg of a 4 week tour of the USa and I couldnt have found a better place to stay, this newly renovated hotel in the middle of south beach was a fantastic experience! Size is great and the view is also fantastic, whilst being comfortable at the same time, location is great and with the facilities of the hotel at your disposal you simply cant do better. I will definitiely be staying here again when I come back and would reccomend it to anyone!

The apartment was really clean and nice and very like the pictures on the site. We had a sea view, which was good. The Shelbourne Hotel itself was impressive. The rennovation they have done is great. It's also in a really convenient place, near the beach and a short walk to the bars in South Beach. Lee, the owner was really helpful and got us on the hotel guest list for the parties in the Shelbourne. We think it's worth the money we paid. And we'd definitely recommend it to anyone. We will be looking to come back next year.

My best friend and I had nothing less than a fantastic stay in Miami and that is with a whole-hearted thanks to Lee and his assistant, Alex. I should mention that Lee is extremely accommodating (even with our late night travels) and our transactions and communications were timely and hassle free. In addition, the apartment is equipped with anything you'd need for an enjoyable stay, which includes among other things, a hair dryer, beach towels, and chairs. The apt was as described (if not better) and although Lee mentions the front desk as being "limited", the front desk is an absolute pleasure to work with. Not to forget that the location is impeccable- just steps from the beach, nice restaurants, and shopping. I would undoubtedly recommend staying here and look forward to visiting The Shelbourne again, but of course through Lee. I give our overall experience 5 stars. Thank you, Lee and alex.

Reliable owner, good location, some compromise but inexpensive by comparison

We elected to stay in the art-deco district of South Beach and chose to stay in this privately owned condo because it was far less expensive than the quoted rate through the hotel's reservations desk. We stayed 7 nights and paid us$950 less than the hotel quoted rate! Lee Baron was absolutely reliable and we would have no hestitation in booking one of his properties again. He is supported by his "runner" Alex who was reliable and on-time. Our booking was made simple by Lee who has a very quick email turnaround time for details and confirmations. His process is simple and effective with no hidden traps. We were advised of full, total cost and had no surprises. As a non-American based traveller we find the addition of taxes and resort fees and all the extra charges imposed for pool towel service, drinks and prohibition of taking one's own water to drink poolside is frustrating. Lee explained all the charges related to our room so we were pleased with his thoroughness and transparency. On checkout we were to receive a refund of security deposit and this was done without question and extremely promptly which speaks volumes about Lee's integrity. So, we suggest Lee Baron operates a reputable condo rental. Now, for the condo itself ... We stayed in a single room condo at 1801 Collins Street with an ocean view from behind the bed. It was probably about 350 sq ft but I am uncertain of that. It had a queen bed, bedside boxes, CD/radio, flat screen TV (visible from all angles, a good size glass table with 2 chairs, a nice white leather sofa, kitchenette with many appliances, small refrigerator and a moderate size but adequate bathroom with a large room for clothes and travel bags. We found the location to be within very comfortable walking distance to everything in South Beach or within a very inexpensive bus ride. We caught the bus to Joe's Stone Crab - 18 blocks away - for 50 cents each!!! Because of unusual rain we caught a cab to america arena to watch Miami Heat (NBa) and it cost $25 with traffic and tips. We caught the bus home for $2 each! 1801 Collins St (The Shelborne) is near enough to everything. Past renos are all done - the Shelborne is fully made over without construction noise, which was a cause for past complaint about this hotel. You cannot stay in the art deco district with an expectation of totally modern facilities. There is compromise because of the age of the buildings and their primary services construction. You will have noise intrusion both from the street level and from neighbours beside or above. It's not unbearable but it is obviously annoyingly present. The hot water to the shower was a raffle - hot at times then cool - we were doing a shower dance! The kitchen facilities were more than adequate to cater cheap 'in condo' meals or simple snacks. There is a CVS and Walgreens within easy walk for groceries.There are restaurants everywhere within 2 or 3 blocks or wider. As a private condo rental you may not have full hotel service. We had no problems but you need to be aware that you are not a guest of the hotel. As australians we were a little surprised by some of the american customs on property managment - specifically we were warned off using the pool area on Friday and Saturday where "parties" were sold out to promotional companies. To be truthful you could actually use the pool, you just couldn't sit around it when these parties were being held. As unusual as this was for us it is apparently common enough in the USa glam locations! If you want to stay in South Beach we found this to be a good location. Tip: Maxine's over the road was an easy place to get any assortment of breakfast or easy meal that you could want. Not expensive, wide menu and reasonable service and good value. The bus stop downtown is just over the road - no issue. If you want value knowing that others are paying much more but you understand there is a trade-off in staying in art-deco then this is a very, very good place to stay. Ps - on check in get the code for the free wi-fi. We had full wi-fi free for our entire stay (7 nights)

Had a great time!

We stayed there for a week in December with our two young kids. We were concerned that the place may be a little tight for the four of us, but it was not a problem at all. We used the kitchenette everyday. The hotel amenities were great. 2 restaurants on site. Friendly staff. On the beach. We had a fantastic time!

The process was very quick and easy. The contract was fair and everything outlined in it was delivered. Had a great stay, someone was there to meet us when we arrived and the room was clean, with towels dishes and sheets. Would highly recommend staying here if you're looking for a reasonably priced place with easy access to everything in south beach.

We really couldnt have asked for more from the apartment for what we wanted. It was in the perfect location, had all the amenities we needed and is great value for money when considering what you'd be paying if you were staying in one of the hotel rooms.The fact that we could use the hotel pool was a real bonus and the beach is literally on the back doorstep.

The manager Lee was really helpful and friendly and couldnt do enough to make sure our stay was pleasurable and hassle free. I'd definitely recommend this as a good basic option for anyone who wants to stay right in the middle of all the action of Collins, but that doesn't want to spend night after night awake in really noisy surroundings! We had a couple of noisy neighbours - what else would you expect in a city like Miami - but you can get that anywhere and it didn't distract from our stay.

We'll definitely be back!

My wife and daughter stayed in this suite at the Shelbourne in april for 4 days and everything was great. The weather, the room, and the location was superb. The kitchen area was an added plus as well. Lee was very accomodating for our early checkin and even helped us with our luggage. I will recommend this place to others.
