la vida Shelbornefrom SILVERFREEPRESS
The Shelborne is not modern. The water temperature fluxuated from what I had set to extremely hot often. The TV is circa 1985. Our car in the Shelborne lot ended up with a flat tire, rear bumper scratch and the rims bent somehow. The club named the Studio (located in the hotel) was a karaoke nightmare that made me laugh and ended up having its glass entrance door shattered by some unruly party goers. The massage I had was great. Only sampled a bit of fried calmari from the restraunt, it was ok. No one attempted room service due to the astronomical taxes and gratutity plus a pot of coffee was $8.95. Ice was free and sent to yr room by a bellman, I even got a newspaper upon request!
The hotel is in the heart of South Beach and is on the water. The pool and 1 of the jacuzzi's were good. The weight room on the 17th floor was simple very simple. House keeping came when we requested and obeyed our do not disturb sign.
One of the most impressive things about this relic is that they're so many ballrooms that are just vacant, at least 6 200 people size ballrooms. Fun to explore and sneak around the lobby and mezzanine areas. Super cool stair case to walk down Mez to Lobby. back of the hotel elevators super slow at times. The ones near the street entrance are turbo. Bed comfort was decent. Cabs are easy to get on Collins Ave at all hours we tried. Plenty of all night eating establishments a few blocks away. Small store located poolside where one could by sun and shot glasses. Walking to the ocean is a couple minutes from the pool thru a construction zone. Bring your own chairs or a towell if yr not prepared to pay $10 to rent 1. It was quiet and had HBO.
This is a rather jumbled review but thats a little how the Shelborne is. Old and pink and odd.
Okay, but not worth the CASHfrom A TripAdvisor Member
do not get hoodwinkedfrom Markiemarkwine
The front desk was extremely rude when we tried to change rooms, and the manager, while apologetic, did nothing. One attempt to change rooms resulted in our unlocking the door to a room already occupied. We were finally changed on the next to last day. This hotel is on the list of Go-Go Tours, but avoid it at all costs. We have stayed in hotels ranging from Four Seasons to Hampton Inns and are not unsophisticated travellers. Just heed our warning.

Top Local Tips for Miami Beach
Hop on the South Beach Local If you are staying in or around South Beach and want a quick and inexpensive way to get around... get on a South Beach Local bus. They run every 15 minutes and take you all over the area. It was clean, safe, and easy.
Teenagers Miami great but did not let our 16 year old daughter out of our sight. Even at traffic lights we had sleezy guys approach her.
So much to do SOBE is just so loaded with things to do and blessed with nearly perfect year round weather, SOBE will not disapoint. Park you car in the public garage on 16th street about 5 blocks from the hotel and either walk of take the buses. Linclon Ave, Ocean Drive and the beach are all within a short walk, actually the beach is at the hotel. Tke the bus to Haulover state park and go the beach at the north end for sun, fun and people watching on the very well attended nude beach. Ocean Drive just 3 blocks to the south has great bars and restaurants as does Licoln Ave . Walking in these areas is safe but this is a city so be alert. I would avoid walking on Washington Ave at night even though several of the clubs are there, just take a cab Your time in SOBe will pass way to fast... enjoy
