As we got out of the cab, the noise was pounding from the Palace where the bass made the ground shake and made it nearly impossible to talk. Maybe OK in the afternoon but it continued until 1:00 AM. The music, announcer, and audience made sleep impossible. We asked to move but they said only one room was available with the same noise problem. I am surprised that OSHA has not shut down the Palace for noise danger to the staff, it was just that loud. The "hotel" should have issued a warning notice as some do when under construction. Our room faced the beach, but the windows didn't look like they had been washed since 1935. The room was spartan. When the room wasn't cleaned the next day we were told that we didn't order cleaning and if we did there was a charge. The couch in the lobby was stained with god knows what substance. The staff was surly and made it a point to say they are a condo not a hotel as if this was their excuse for poor service and room condition. The bathroom had an oval tub with no safety handles. So you had to step up and into the tub to take a shower. The shower curtain did not fully enclose the tub, so water poured out the back onto the floor. The Toto toilet actually sounded like it was breathing heavily when you flushed and continued for about 5 minutes. The cockroach in the toilet at least was dead. Security was very weak. No in room safe despite advertisement. No key required to get into the building.

My Suite was beautiful, the only major complaint there was a huge leak in the ventilation system that dripped water our whole entire trip. The staff was very cooperative with cleaning and handling the situation, but the leak just came right back. They offered a room change, but we prefer to stay in the same room, overall my first Miami trip was great!

Long Weekend Stay at Congress Hotel Suites

Pros: Location and view of the ocean.
Cons: Better management and better training. Housekeeping inspections prior to room occupancy.
Location: All of the dining and entertainment of Ocean Drive and South Beach are steps away.
Poorly managed hotel and suites. Owners of suites units (condo units) should demand better management if they participate in the hotel program. Housekeeping quality was poor - tub not clean, hair in bathroom floor, carpet not well vacuumed. Two days of requests for fresh towels went unheeded. I have stayed in South Miami Beach many times, but never been asked to hand over my ID for a couple of beach towels. The iron in the unit was unusable as the non-stick surface was bubbling and peeling off. Some windows had black out blinds, some did not. The location right on Ocean Drive is great for access to the entertainment, dining of Ocean Drive and the Beach. Expect a lot of noise.
