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, coffee makers 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 5-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.

Loved the staff, very friendly, bed was comfortable. Housekeeping neglected our room the second day but fixed it the next day. Thought the pool needed work, a water feature would keep the water fresh, lounge chairs were very uncomfortable and old. Other then that our experience was great.

Valet was NOT convenient. Could not call for truck ahead of time. Valet ran it over the curb. Not a convenient way to check out when everything else was electronic.

The hotel is a great location and the customer service was excellent. The hotel is clean and quiet (not the place to stay if you're looking for a party atmosphere). There are activities such as a pool table, Jenga and a ping pong table. They also have bikes to rent for free which is a great touch. They offer a free shuttle to the beach but it's not needed because the beach is two blocks away from the hotel. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

the staff (especially Victor our bellman/porter) was friendly and very accommodating. The rooms (at least the room we were in i.e. 330) were very nice.

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.

Nice, quiet location but close enough to south beach

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.
