My boyfriend and I stayed here one night before we went on a cruise. The hotel is very charming, with antiques in the rooms and an old-fashioned elevator that requires a member of the staff to operate it. There is a parking garage right up the street, which charges $14 a night. Since we were there on a Saturday night,... More

We stayed at Hotel Place St. Michel for one night in January while on a day trip to the Miami area with some friends. We agree with the other reviewers that the hotel is charming in its own way -- decorated with "antiques", pleasant and obliging staff, a bit off the beaten track but within easy walking distance of all...

Lots of antiques and very quiet. No room service. Rather funky but we liked the place and will return. Very attentive staff that appreciates you staying with them. Very clean. Dining room may open soon.

i stayed here with 10 other friends on our way to do the Ragnar relay from Miami to Key West. The rooms were great, the ambiance was wonderful. Walking distance to places to eat, pretty sites around the hotel. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Covered garage parking. We were all pleased with our stay here! Loved the antiques in...

My fiancée and I stayed a weekend here and loved it! If you're expecting high tech, modern amenities, then stay elsewhere. But if you want European charm (which is what Coral Gables is all about) in a great location in the Gables, this is it! Comfortable bed, and vintage room decor make this a great romantic getaway hotel.

Stayed in this hotel on a Friday night during the Christmas holidays.The price was excellent for the Season and it was very well located. Unfortunately, public works were repairing right in front of the entrance,so the water was cut and there was noise all through the night.Thank God for earplugs! Also,our reservation was for 2 beds and we got a... More

This is a small hotel that is like stepping into the past--in a good sense. The elevator has an operator, furnishings are high quality and somewhat antique. Parking is directly across the street. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. Baths are fine. Nice location--very close to the airport and dining choices in Coral Gables. Service is very friendly and helpful.... More

We stayed in this charming, quaint hotel for one night. Our spacious room had two double beds with 4 pillows each. If you like beautiful old world ambience, you'll love this hotel. My favorite feature was the elevator, from the 1920's! The bathroom was very nice, tile and marble, had a great shower head and tub. Very large windows. Only... More

We were 4 adults travelling together and we stayed one night at this hotel. We found the hotel interesting, the very opposite of anonymous and boring hotel chains that dominate the world nowadays! Unfortunately the cleaning was a disappointment, it looked like they had not changed the white bed sheets in the beds since the last guests (the sheets were... More

I stayed here when my flight was cancelled thanks to the 2014 "polar vortex", and it turned out to be a most providential choice--certainly a helluva lot better than staying in some chain out by the airport, where there would be little within walking distance to do. As advertised, a historic old hotel (1926) that has retained its charm. Even... More
