A nice room close to the U campus. Mine faced the pool and had a small balcony. Everything worked and was clean. The wifi wasn't super speedy...lots of pauses when streaming Netflix. Great Happy Hour at the bar. $2.50 beers and snacks. They are undergoing renovations so parts were a bit messy but nothing that distracted from the overall stay.

I never pay a lot of money to stay at a hotel. Usually you just go there to sleep and it's not worth it to spend a fortune just for a bed. This time was different, I was supposed to spend a lot of time in the hotel, so I decided to spend a little more and choosing a "holiday... More

Hard to relate to the positive reviews that had me book two nights at the Holiday Inn Coral Gables. My experience was that on the first night the walls are made of tissue paper and I could get no sleep for the two party's on either side of my room. I moved the next day and it happened again.

I coordinate many meetings in Miami long-distance; I do not travel to the meeting. I'm so thankful that I found the Holiday Inn Coral Gables! I am not on site when the meetings are taking place and I can only grade the services and the attendee experiences' once I've reconciled attendee evaluations a few weeks after each meeting. The verdict... More

I've been here for over a month and wish I could stay longer! Beds are incredibly comfortable and rooms are always cleaned quickly and carefully. The hotel bar and restaurant have great food and adult beverages. It's worth checking out (especially the Maui Martini). The pool area is maintained well and in a great central location in the hotel.

At first glance this hotel is impressive for the price point. The lobby is spacious and decked out in marble. They have a full service bar and restaurant (although I did not eat there a coworker did and was pleased with his mahi mahi). There is a lot of outdoor space to hang out by the pool and take in...

The hotel is pretty old. We went into the lounge and were told it was Happy Hour and drinks were 2 for 1. We each ordered a drink and when we finished ordered our second drink. Upon finishing those we asked for our bill - Imagine our surprise when it was more than $20.00 (we don't drink exotic drinks -... More

Prices were high compared with similar hotels and on a busy road but it's the most convenient hotel near the U (walking distance) which can save a lot of hassle trying to look (or pay) for on campus parking.
