With a setting on historic Ocean Drive and trendy interiors, the Penguin Hotel seamlessly blends the old with the new.
This hotel has secured a close-to-the-action spot on Miami’s world-famous Ocean Drive. Restaurants, bars and historic buildings roll out from its doorstep. And it’s just a minute’s stroll from the beach.
You might be in the middle of the Art Deco district, but this place is modern to a T. Rooms are inspired by nature – think pebble wallpaper, marble countertops and glass chandeliers.

Have stayed here before. Big changes in policy since the last time. Forced to pay bill in full on check in. There was a 250.00 security deposit which is understandable but with 3 people splitting the cost it made it more difficult. Good thing my card had enough available on it. Phone didn't work, extra towel request ignored, A/C didn't work well and dripped water all night. On a positive note...our room had a fabulous view.More
Cafe on the street, people watchers paradise
Only stopped for a snack and a cool S. Pellegreno - friendly staff, not over priced for the location and great for people watching/car watching with Ferraris and Lamborghini quite common sights. From the south of Ocean Drive this is a good stopping/ turning point for the walk back down. More

Great location with clean, modern rooms
We spent 2 nights at the Penguin after a business meeting and were very pleased with the value that we received. The location is absolutely unbeatable, everything we wanted to do was a 2-5 minute walk. The hotel rooms are clean with modern amenities and I thought the size was just fine, plenty of room for our 4 suitcases and clothes in the closet and the small sofa made a nice sitting area. The bathroom is pretty tight, but it has been updated and is very functional. I did a lot of research and did not find anything else of this quality within 3 blocks of Ocean for under $300.More

Fantastic location but unreasonably priced for the quality of the hotel
The location is perfect, just in front of the Ocean and close to the major restaurants/shopping area. Atmosphere is very relaxed and staffs are friendly and very relaxed. Some were very professional and pleasant but some were not very service minded and hardly understood English which made us awkward. We stayed in a ocean suite, but it is just a large room with 2 queen size beds, and almost no furniture. As the room had long space by the window, we had to place all our belongings there. Shower room is very simple. Perhaps you pay for the location but we thought it was over priced for the quality of the hotel. More
