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.

Stayed at this Holiday Inn for a long time. In general the hotel has a good structure, gym and restaurant. However, the wifi connection is horrible, there are some areas of the hotel where the connection apparently doesn`t exist. In terms to the staff, all of them were always really helpful friendly and nice. In this time that I stayed,... More

We visit Miami once a year to see our 97 year old aunt. We stay at this Holiday Inn because it is comfortable and convenient. Mostly though we appreciate the friendly , courteous and competent service we received from Michelle,Eddy and Kat at the front desk. See you all next year.

Stayed at this Holiday Inn due to high rates in downtown Miami. Was easy drive back and forth to where we needed to go--even though can be very congested at times. Very nice pool area and plenty of lobby seating.
