The Hotel is pretty good and clean, and the service was also very nice and extremely helpful, specilly the front desk. Although the hotel is pretty good, there isn't anything around. I was there because I was waiting for the UM to find me a place on campus, so for me was good. Also my family stayed here when they... More

The entire staff was friendly, accommodating, and always happy to help. The beds/bedding were impressively comfortable. Breakfast was ok, but could have used some healthier, whole grain breads and cereal, as well as berries. The smell of carpet in the hallway, as well as the rooms, was horrible. It was musty and smelled like a combination of foot odor and... More

There are two huge advantage of this place. #1 You can walk to U. Miami. Walking requires you to cross the Dixie Highway, which is not easy! #2 You can get here from the airport on train. Otherwise, its a mediocre Holiday Inn. Not so bad, but nothing special. The pool looked nice. The Bar and Grill was what you'd... More

Had a great time. Michelle, Flor, and Lynette at the front desk were so helpful! They helped me arrange a taxi to take me to the airport as well as a late check out. They were also very friendly and nice!

Michelle, Flor, and Lynette were incredibly helpful in booking a taxi and making breakfast arrangements for my friend and I. They were polite, professional, kind, friendly, and efficient. Top notch ladies!

We were at at conference at the Miami U and the hotel is located near the campus. The hotel was a bit worn down and the service at the breakfast was below average. Beside that the front desk crew were nice and there are free parking right next to the hotel. Considering we got the Miami U discount for the... More

I was very impressed with how clean the facility is, the staff was extremely helpful. I did not like, that they charge for parking! Seriously! But I got them on this - their key holder, states FREE parking. So I was able to get them to deduct the parking fee, from my bill. Pays to read their advertisements.

Don't believe the claims on this hotel's website. I saw from reviews that the wifi was pretty unreliable, but the hotel website said each room had wired internet, so figured it'd be OK, can just hook up an ethernet cable if I need to get some work done. Nope! The website lies. No wired internet, and the wifi is just... More

I just returned from attending a conference in this hotel. It was certainly not the first time I stayed at this hotel but I really hope it was the last time I stayed there. When we checked in late at night after a long flight to Miami, all we needed was a comfy bed for a real quality rest. But,... More
