Room 362 Upon entry room appeared fresh, clean, and cool in the Coral Gables heat. Bed extremely comfortable. PROBLEMS: 01)Very annoyed to discover that there was no telephone book/directory in the room. Not everyone uses the internet to search for businesses/phone numbers, and the internet provides listings based on who is paying the most, and not alphabetically, There is nothing... More

Michelle and Ed gave me and my family excellent advice on places to go out and listen to live music in the local area. They were both extremely friendly and wrote out an entire list of places for us to go in different areas of town. We ended up having an excellent evening.
