Built on the foundation of the historic Ankara Motel, the 4-star Gates Hotel South Beach features a look that blends art deco-inspired architecture with modern comfort and vintage glamour. 

The 235 cheerful guest rooms feature colorful headboards and are adorned with locally inspired, abstract artwork. Upscale accommodations include desks, flat-screen TVs, refrigerators, coffeemakers and granite bathrooms with walk-in showers; some rooms have balconies with views of the lake or city. Families and groups can spread out in suites with separate bedrooms and sofa beds in the living rooms. 

Cabanas line the spacious pool deck that overlooks Lake Pancoast and also offers lounge chairs and a poolside bar. The property features a Mexican-inspired restaurant, Agaveros Cantina, as well as a lobby bar and lounge and a fully equipped fitness center. Guests of all ages are greeted with complimentary, freshly baked chocolate-chip cookies upon arrival.

Located on Collins Avenue, the hotel is across the street from the beach and a short walking distance to several bars. It is a five-minute drive from the Miami Beach Convention Center as well as the shops and restaurants of Lincoln Road Mall. Just 10 minutes away is iconic Ocean Drive, while the Port of Miami is a 20-minute drive.

they didn’t respect the price that I had agreed when booking through Travelzoo. I was charged 100 dolars more. Unfortunately, they didn’t ask me to approve the charge and I just find out it now, when I received my credit card statement.

I would give a 7, nice hotel that with small refinements could be even better. Very good lady concierge. She was really friendly, helpful, did not try to push sales onto you. Followed up with our your day went when she saw you about.

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Close enough to the beach but far enough from the hustle and bustle.

The staff was exceptional. You can tell they really enjoy what they do. Seraphina, Bob and Amy went over and beyond to provide an outstanding memorable customer service experience.

Great location right next to several trolley stops which take you around South Beach. Also, close to bridges if you want to drive to downtown Miami. Beautifully decorated, low key lodging.

Odd and uninviting check in... “What do you want?” Is not my idea of a greeting.
Other Comments
The restaurant, morning staff...have no appreciation for early risers who want to get out... almost 1 hour for a two egg breakfast. Ali the night before was nice, it the next day was a time vacuum. Valet are missing a few screws as well.
