what a gem – The cavalier hotel is really a gem in the heart of south beach. I was reading the reviews and was really hesitant on booking a room here but the price was tooo good ( you feel me).the standard rooms are small but very hip and i was really feeling the decor.
loved the cavalier – I recently stayed @ the Cavalier for 5 nights and totally enjoyed it. I loved the fact that the hotel was conveniently located in the heart of south beach, and that i could wake up early in the morning and go for a jog on the beach right across from the hotel. The rooms range fromyour standard guest rooms to their deluxe ocean front suites. My husband and i stayed in the deluxe oceanfront which included a separate living room area, fridge,coffeemaker,cable,music system.Breakfast was also included ,as well as a complimentary happy hour open bar with hor'doerves.This hotel definitely has alot to offer and the rates were very economical.
The location, owner, and staff where on the money I really e – My stay was exceptional. At first I was unfamiliar with the convenience of this hotel being next to cafe cordozo and central to all night life and across from the beach. The evening bar hours were above and beyond what I have experienced 2 for 1 drinks along with cafe dinning out in front of the hotel great for people watching. really too much to speak about. If you want more bang for your buck this place is it. The owner is really cool and gets about and around the best night clubs pal up with him (if you can) he is very well known in the south beach scene. I frequent the south beach scene quite often and will book with the cavalier hotel every time. I highly recomend it. Price for accomodations is hands down the best you'll get.
location, location, and price – I stayed here for the winter music conference in March last year, and my boyfriend and I would definately stay here again. The staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't book this hotel to stay in it and critic it's every fault, but just a place to crash after hitting up the South Beach nightlife all night. Couldn't beat the loaction, and the price, for that time of year.
Great hotel if you're looking for staying where all the fun – We stayed at the Cavalier because we wanted a decent hotel on the main drag. And that's exactly what we got. The rooms are extremely small and the bathroom fixture might look old, but everything is clean, the staff was nice and helpful and it's right where the action is. Just across the beach, on the main drag. Just put on your best clothes and head out of the door. You're there.
Cavalier looks like your old European hotel: art-deco furniture and a funky old elevator that might scare some but that it only adds to the whole flair.
News Cafe is close by (excellent breakfast.)
We were traveling with our then five-month old baby so we asked for a room away from the ocean and the street which we got. They also provide baby-sitting for an extra cost, but we ended up not using the service. Being on the main street, my husband and I just took turns going out and looking at the street action at night.
Parking is extra and is not easy to find parking around. But hey, it's South Beach. If it were easy, we'd all be living there.
Loved the Cavalier – I loved the Cavalier Hotel...it was right in the heart of it all!!!and the staff was really friendly and helpful It was the "classic" south beach hotel very economical yet trendy and hip......it had a very laid back vibe....the beach is right across the street what more can you ask for....loved it,
Location Location – Location is everything! A stone's throw from the New Cafe and the former Versace mansion. The surrounding hotels are very swanky, this is a little, reasonably priced gem. Nice amenities in the room and a warm, helpful staff. Would definitely go back.
reat place...highly recommend! – My friend and I spent 9 days at this fabulous hotel. The location is spectacular, located right on Ocean Drive and the front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. Furthermore, although the rooms aren't extremely large, they range the standard room size and are tastefully appointed. I am going back again this year and am greatly looking forward to my stay! :-)
Had a great time in South Beach – I was in Miami on business and decided to stay on South Beach to enjoy the surroundings. I discovered the Cavalier by accident while walking by on an outdoor excursion. The first thing that got my attention was the outdoor restaurant, and menu. It was very plesant sitting on the side of the sidewalk enjoying dinner and watching the locals, and tourists walk by. I booked a two night stay in the hotel, and was treated to a very nicely decorated king suite with a great view of the beach. I could have cocktails in the lobby bar, and then make my way upstairs to the room, safely. The manager was more than courteous, and asked on several occations if I was comfortable, and if there was anything he could do. I highly recommend the Cavalier Hotel, when convienience, pleasant sights, and hospitality are wanted. Did I mention price, the rates were much less than I expected to pay given all of the above. Thanks Cavalier!!!
A fun throwback – The Cavalier is a funky decco hotel perfectly located on a lively but not mental strip of Ocean Drive, right on the best part of the beach and next door to Gloria Estevan's hotel The Cardoza. My wife and I, both in our forties, thought the hotel had a hip, hole in the wall quality we found very romantic. There is no actual lobby. Guests enter through a restaurant / bar called CJ's Crab Shack. The food is pretty good, and the place is full of hipsters all night long. The front desk is tucked in a corner by the bar. Next to the desk is a vintage 3 passenger elevator, complete with a hinged door and one of those scissor cages. Every time I took the elevator I felt like I was in a Cagney movie. We had a room on the third at the very back of the hotel so it was pretty quiet, although like all decco hotels the walls are thin. The bedding was decent, the bed was good, and the tile floor looked new. There was a walk in closet with open shelves, but no storage otherwise. The bathroom was small and a little run down looking, but everything worked and there was lots of hot water. Central ac worked well, and the temp was in the mid 80's while we were there. I found the hotel staff excellent. The front desk crew were polite and helpful on the phone, and absolutely charming in person. The maid was also first rate. We tracked sand all over every day, and every afternoon the room was made spotless again. If you are expecting Holiday Inn, you'll probably hate the Cavalier, and South Beach for that matter. But anyone looking for a cool place to crash after a day in the surf and a night in the lounge will love it. And the price can't be beat.
