Built on the foundation of the historic Ankara Motel, the Gates Hotel South Beach recently unveiled 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. 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 newly expanded, spacious pool deck that overlooks Lake Pancoast and also offers lounge chairs and a poolside bar. The property features a new 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, and Wi-Fi is free throughout the building. 

Located on Collins Avenue, the hotel is across the street from the beach and a five-minute drive from the Miami Beach Convention Center and 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.

The reservation was misleading, it says discounted breakfast for $15 per person. To my assumption and to the staff over the phone upon arrival, it was to be applied to the restaurant for $15. Instead when trying to redeem the voucher they applied it to continental breakfast and we had to pay an additional $15 for a hot breakfast. The breakfast was not worth the additional $15, I would have preferred to eat at Denny’s. Luckily we only ate breakfast once and forfeit the additional day for breakfast.

The cookies, of course! I enjoyed the location and proximity to the beach. It was helpful to have transportation to and from the beach in addition to having the towels and water included. Also, having the resort fee waived was a plus! Discounted breakfast was also appreciated.

I wish that the on site restaurant had more menu options. However, the waiter staff was friendly and attentive. I also wish the cost of the beach chairs could be added to the cost of the room as I forgot to take enough money. However, the young lady took me at my word that I would bring the remainder of what I owed immediately upon returning to the hotel. As a matter of fact, the transportation driver volunteered to take the remainder of my payment to the young lady so that I would not have to walk back to the beach. This was much appreciated.

They offer reasonably priced meals on site and Happy Hour prices so that you do not even have to leave the hotel if you do not want too. Additionally, since they are across the street from the beach, they have shuttles that take you to the beach so that you do not have to walk.

My only issue was when we arrived they did not have our reservation from TravelZoo. However, they informed me that TravelZoo was a new partner and that not having my reservation was not an issue. They immediately made me feel calm and that they had a room for us and it was no issue.
