  • Ivette Davalos and her team at the National Hotel made our wedding day a perfect day!!!! When we started planning for our wedding, we decided we wanted a fully outdoor wedding ceremony and reception. We did our research and visited a few hotels that provided that. Every other hotel either had an unresponsive events coordinator, or they couldn't accommodate a fully outdoor party or their food/beverage packages couldn't be modified. On my first visit to the National, I was blown away by Ivette's professionalism and kindness and the beautiful outdoor space of the hotel. It was literally, love at first sight. Pictures don't do justice how beautiful this hotel is during the day and at night. Ivette was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was always available for anything we needed. She customized the food/beverage package to exactly what we wanted. The weekend of our wedding, her and her staff were very accommodating to us and all our family/friends that visited from out of to... Read more

  • We had our destination wedding in Miami (we're from the UK and have never been to Miami before), which meant planning our wedding was quite tricky as we had to do everything via email and we couldn't visit anywhere before the event After looking at lots of photographs, doing lots of internet research and relying heavily on Wedding Wire, I found The National Hotel. We had some really specific ideas about how we wanted our venue to be, and Ivette at The National wanted to make it all possible for us right from the start. We wanted a morning wedding, drinks beforehand, a beach ceremony followed by outdoor cocktail hours with free flowing drinks and food which was easy to eat whilst standing up (just to name a few). Plus our wedding was taking place mid-week, shortly after Miami Music week had finished which meant the hotel and the staff had been very busy. Ivette was always so positive, quick to reply and nice to work with, which helped us to decide on The National quite quickly. Sh... Read more

  • We are beyond thrilled with Ivette and her team at the National and the service for our wedding. We were given amazing treatment both the night before the wedding and the night of. We had everything outside and the hotel accommodated all of our requests. We were able to stay outside until close to midnight with out DJ and it was a blast. I would do it all over again. It was such a relief to have everything in one place and run smoothly and under control. Our wedding planner worked closely with Ivette to ensure everything worked out and it was just perfect.

  • I could not be more impressed with the National and with Ivette, their in-house wedding coordinator. We had our ceremony, cocktails, and reception at the National, and had our guests stay there as well. Truly phenomanal service all around-- they really know what they are doing! The food was spectacular (we went with the buffet-- beef currasco, mahi, rice and beans, plantains, heart of palm salad, etc.) and they even specially make pastelitos for a little late night snack, which were OUTSTANDING! When the unexpected happened (the Delano threw a bumpin' pool party without a permit from the city), Ivette was on it with a great backup plan for our outdoor ceremony, and we moved to the opposite end of the pool and had a gorgeous, super intimate ceremony that I absolutely loved. Ivette came to me with a solution in hand, which made my life so easy-- all I had to do was say yes! We also had to move the band area (lest they be drowned out by the Delano's music) and the whole National team was ... Read more

  • My husband and I traversed the country looking for the perfect venue for our destination wedding for 120 people, and we found that at the National Hotel, right on Collins Avenue in South Beach, Miami. We worked directly with Ivette from across the country, and she was truly amazing. I absolutely loved her level of professionalism and the fact cares so much about the finer details as I do. She loves her job and you can tell, she is brilliant at it. With regards to the wedding itself, we had an outdoor wedding reception for 120 people and it was nothing short of breathtaking. We enjoyed a magical evening underneath swaying palm trees and danced with the sea breeze on our back. Not only was the venue fantastic but the food, drinks, and staff were terrific as well. We, in fact, had guests stay on after the wedding as they enjoyed the hotel and hospitality so much.

  • From the moment I walked into the National Hotel I knew it was the hotel that I was going to get married in! The hotel and the grounds are absolutely gorgeous. The art deco theme inside and laid back/relaxed feel of the pool area is the perfect location for a wedding. We got married on 5/12/2018. For the food- we were able to custom pick for a Latin feel to our 115 people reception. The food was fantastic! Guests could not stop talking about the Live paella/ and steak with chimichurri. The food was served HOT, there was PLENTY of food, and the staff did a fantastic job of getting people up and avoiding lines!! The Brunch the next day for 60 people was also delicious! People are saying it was their favorite wedding food EVER! The wedding coordinator Ivette was super nice, responsive, professional and easy to work with. She answered all questions/concerns in a timely manner. Unfortunately due to rain we had to move the event inside at the LAST minute- BUT because of the excellence of Ive... Read more

  • The National Hotel hosted our beach wedding, cocktail hour, and reception last weekend. We booked them 1) because this GORGEOUS venue fit our Great Gatsby theme perfectly, and 2) their wedding package is very inclusive and INCREDIBLY reasonable in price - especially for South Beach. Things did not start out smoothly. We booked in January for an October wedding. February - June were very stressful months because The National changed their catering/event manager twice. Both times I had to contact the hotel directly in order to find out about the staffing changes. Each time, I'd connect with their new event manager for a week or two, and then get ghosted until finding out about the staff change. By July, I was at my wits' end with the staffing uncertainties and it was too late to book another venue.... Thankfully, Rose Figueroa, their newest event manager reached out to me in July and soothed my frazzled nerves. Rose is FANTASTIC - she's professional, organized, easy to contact, a... Read more

  • We just got married at the National on January 14 and everything was perfect!! We are from NYC and had 80 of our closest friends and family stay at the National for the week of our wedding. Everyone knew it was our big day and treated our guests like royalty! Yaser and his team truly understand how to throw an amazing wedding and we’re attentive and patient every step of the way!!! I am so so happy we had our wedding at the National and can’t wait to go back again! If you are looking for an intimate wedding where you leave feeling like the staff is family, choose the National!

  • There is no better place in South Beach than getting married at the National Hotel. Wedding Ceremony can be done on the beach as a beach wedding (thats what we did and it was great) or by the pool area, they even have a rain back-up on the terrace or inside. From the first moment on we have been taken care of. When getting married in this hotel, you are treated like a VIP - there is only one wedding, so no other brides around. The hotel special rates for family and friends to stay at the same hotel are fair for South Beach, rooms are great and food is amazing. Allow yourself a massage by the pool - priceless. The entire staff at the hotel were aware of our wedding and did everything possible so that our day was perfect. Catarina - the event planner - was the best! Without her, we wouldn't have had the perfect wedding we had after all!!!! Go for it, you will not regret it!

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Sabrina - thank you so much for your kind words. It was a true pleasure to be part of your special day. Wishing you all the best on this exciting new stage of your life. Come see us again soon - you are part of the National Family now! warm regards, Catarina Suplicy

  • We had visited several venues including other hotels before we met with Catarina at the National. We fell in love with the National within minutes and didn't want to look at any other venue. The National is breathtaking and fit with our vision perfectly. It also provided amazing photo opportunities for our first look. Catarina and the whole team were wonderful to work with throughout the planning process and took amazing care of us during our stay. We really felt like royalty! We had our rehearsal dinner on the terrace and treated our out of town family to a brunch on Sunday. Our guests raved about the food and service. We also had a few food allergies that needed to be accommodated and they were beyond helpful in taking care of us. It was a perfect wedding weekend. We would highly recommend the National and hope we can return sometime soon. Thank you, Catarina and the National team!

  • We had an absolutely magical wedding at the National. Our 120 guests arrived Friday for a welcome reception held on the patio, Saturday we had the wedding and reception poolside, and lastly on Sunday we treated our guests to a breakfast buffet at the hotel. The staff at the National made our entire group feel special, pampered, and exclusively catered to. If you are looking for an absolutely gorgeous venue with the most relaxed and logistics free location I highly recommend Catarina and the National. Our guests are still raving about the most beautiful destination wedding they've ever been to!

  • This venue is absolutely beautiful and we were ultimately very happy in the end. Definitely some frustrations along the way. Make sure you're as clear and detailed as possible when communicating with both the catering and reservation teams (if you're doing a room block).

  • If you’re planning on getting married here, think again. My parents spent close to 30k so that when it came time to take pictures next to the scenic pool and hotel scapes, I had to wait in line like it was a fucking buffet. Another bride was allowed to take pictures on the premises by the event coordinator on MY wedding day. I was humiliated when we had to delay our photos because the other woman and her photog wouldn’t leave. When the event coordinator was confronted, she simply said that she didn’t think it was a problem, and that she thought they would have left before we arrived. Spend your money elsewhere.

  • The event was great. My only complaint of the evening (and should have addressed it at the time) was we ran out of white wine 30 minutes before the event was scheduled to be over. We had paid for open premium bar and this should never happen. Always better to have more than enough and return what is not consumed.
