Nice place

Room was extremely small and a bit run down. Nowhere to put your clothes so you're basically living out of a suitcase the entire stay. Good for one or two nights, for one person. TV was nice and big, bathroom modern. However the rain shower head was in an awkward location so showering was pretty annoying. The rooftop pool was amazing. And Dolce restaurant was tasty. Free breakfast was simple but good.

I really loved the location of the property and Kimberly, one of the front desk staff, was great. She was very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately the room was way too small and there were very few amenities.

The Gale exceeded all expectations for our group. We booked a room with two queen beds to accommodate four guys, which we knew going into it would be tight, but we knew that going in. The rooms were incredibly clean and the services staff was very quick to respond to any of our requests, such as fresh towels. The location was great - only a block walk from the beach. The rooftop pool was amazing and we spent the majority of our time there. The GM, Kevin, was very personal and took the time out of his day to talk to guests and make sure they were enjoying their stay. Mid week, we asked if it would be possible to upgrade our room, and the front desk actually gave us an additional room for a reservation that fell through at no additional cost! I can not recommend this hotel enough. If we return to Miami, we will definitely try to stay at the Gale again.

Bed jammed against wall. Pool on 5th floor and very small - no shade. No chair to sit in cramped room. Only a few chairs on bottom floor to sit in non-relaxing environment. For the money spent, we were extremely disappointed. Also, they never had wash cloths available- really?

Location is good , amenities, restaurant are good, room a bit small but normal for south beach.

The black and white photos showing the hotel history were nice.

I did not like the stuff attitude . Very snobbish …and extremely rude.

Very pretty hotel, great rooftop pool, well located.

I was really impressed with this hotel in nearly every way. We had a room with a terrace which was an excellent decision because it allowed us a private outdoor space to relax. The staff was great from the front desk staff on. The rooms are small but it's Miami Beach, get outside. The hotel is in a great location at 17th and Collins. Close to the beach. Good distance from anywhere you would want to go. Stay here, you'll enjoy it.

Room too small, no view, bathroom and shower is open to the room.

Great location of the hotel - close proximity to the beach and various attractions and restaurants. The restaurant on the premises - Dolce - has delicious food and amazing coffee! Must try! Room was cozy, but a bit tight - not enough room for unpacked clothing... The saddest part about the stay was that the pool was not working properly - the water was always freezzzzzing cold and impossible to swim in.

Absolutely love this hotel! Perfect location, near the beach, shopping and all the bars and restaurants. The room is spacious, clean and pretty modern. The amenities are top notch and the beddings are so comfortable. The rooftop pool is amazing ... spectacular views, spacious and even provided us with suntan lotion/sunblock and ice cold water. But what makes this my favorite hotel in South Beach are the staff! Very professional, friendly and very attentive. I would add that they went out and beyond and made us feel so special. Thank you to all the staff at Gale South Beach

Nice hotel close to beach but needs to renovated and room cleanliness could be better
