No better setting in SoBe or Miami, great food, great drinks, efficient friendly staff, cool Martini Bar, great scene. Escape from obnoxious mega hotels eating up South Beach.

Terrible Customer Service

Rating: 4

Although the hotel has many great features (lovely wait staff, fun pool, etc) the customer service provided by the hotel management was terrible. The room we stayed in was nice and had great features, nice tv, ipod dock, etc. However nothing worked. The TV was broken, the minibar was locked and did not keep anything cold and the air conditioning unit (in the ceiling of the closet) dripped dirty water on all of our clothes. I had a brand new dress(price tag still attached) destroyed in the process and I had to argue with the manager to have it replaced. He agreed to credit the value of the dress off of room charges but when we checked out the value was less than promised and they refused to give us the value which had been agreed upon. I will never stay at this hotel again and would not recommend it to anyone.

Fabulous Hotel

Rating: 10

The Raleigh is one of my fave hotels. It knocks other beach hotels out cold! The food is great and you can take your time and chill while eating. No rude waiters hovering around and making you feel uncomfortable. The rooms are really cool with all the high-tech stuff you need. Nice, quiet hotel with a very discrete staff. The pool is unbelievable. It's probably one of the best in the USA. Everyone here looks chic. You feel like you're a guest in a Manor. Each staff member treats you like a special guest. I can never get enough of the Raleigh!

The New Chez Walters restaurant has an excellent Miami Spice Menu, Beautiful Pool

Rating: 10

Breakfast and Lunch at the Chez Walters is among the best things in Miami Beach, Brunch on Sundays next to the most beautiful and truly an Oscar winning Pool is my favorite. The food is great with flavors for every taste along with the best tropical cocktails like the famous mojitos and frozen drinks, no to mention having a mimosa next to pool area. The service is very good and overall the Raleigh is the only real Art Deco Hotel / Restaurant left, classy and chic. Highly recommended!

Great On A Sunday

Rating: 10

The outdoor bar at Hotel Raleigh offers something for everyone. Went on a Sunday with one of my friends and was told locals frequent on Sundays. The bar is chic chic but, still laid-back enough to escape a grand snob factor. There is something for everyone with multiple areas: a deck area, pool area, and beach/sand area with a bonfire going. People are laid-back yet trendy and drinks are average-priced. I can't begin to describe the awesome vibe that is present. Definately a great place to go and hang out.

Cool Pool/Hot Bar

Rating: 10

Can't miss here. Everything's perfect. The rooms are comfy.The lobby is funky and the meals are quite tasty. You can linger with your drinks, without being bothered by annoying employees. Baby, this place is something else. Even if you're a local, stop by. It's like nothing else on South Beach.
