The Shepley Hotel - A Miami Masterpiece
The Shepley Hotel is located in the heart of Miami Beach, precisely on Collins Avenue. This street is one block away from the world renowned Ocean Drive featuring some of the hottest restaurants and clubs in the world. The hotel itself with only 29 rooms would be in our opinion a small almost family run hotel.
When we arrived the concierge was at the door holding it open and although we weren’t holding much baggage offered to take it. The reception although small had a very modern style and was exactly what we look for in a hotel, the type of place you could sit with a coffee and relax or sit and read a book.
It was about 2 hours before check in time (3:00pm), but The front desk clerk was extremely helpful and let us check into our room straight away. We walked down the picturesque corridor to our room which was extremely spacious with two queen size beds some vintage furniture, safe box, flat screen tv, a double shower and complimentary bathrobes.
For me, one of the main pet hates of hotels is internet issues or slow speeds but The Shepley Hotel blew my expectations out of the water with Wifi speeds hitting 50MB\s which are more than anyone would need for scrolling social media or streaming a film.
The main selling point for The Shepley Hotel for me was the close proximity to Ocean Drive and Miami beach which is mainly why most people travel to Miami. On two occasions we got up early to relax at the beach and when speaking to the friendly front desk clerk, we were told that beach chairs and towels were available complimentary of the hotel, which was an added bonus when having a dip in the sea.
Before arrival we thought that The Shepley Hotel was room only but when we got up in the morning to go grab a coffee we had quite a pleasant surprise to see fresh fruit, pastries, juices, cereals and hot drinks included. When eating breakfast you can eat it inside or outside while watching the world go by. We sat outside the hotel's enclosed seating area with a bottle of Grey Goose waiting on transportation for a nightclub with no issues, all while enjoying the warm Miami heat.
The Shepley hotel is one of Beatthetravelagents beloved hotels and although we only stayed for a couple of days we loved the attention to detail and the truly friendly approach that staff gives. The Shepley gets our First class rating and we hope to be back in Miami soon to do it all over again.
