The hotel was very nice and clean and looked newly remodled. Our rooms were very comfortable and had a great view of the racetrack and the stadium. It's the closest hotel to the stadium. The area seems safe, but the hotel had great security anyway. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Pansy, Devonie, Crystal, and Andrew the driver were... More

My hubby and I stayed 2 nights at the Miami location only because it was convenient for us on 11/6-11/8. I was very hesitant about staying there after reading the reviews (I wanted the Marriott, because I don’t believe in paying for poor customer service) - However, my husband convinced me to stay there because of the location and he...

The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the free continental breakfast. At first I was very skeptical about staying here because we ALWAYS stay at the Marriott hotels and... More

Several members of the Treasure Coast Parrot Head Club stayed at your hotel on the night we participated in the halftime show at the Sept. 21 Miami Dolphins Monday Night football game. The stadium was very closeby. We are extremely greatful to your staff doing their best to put... More

I would warn anyone going to this hotel do not book. This hotel was located in a bad area so bad they have a 24 hr armed guard on duty. When I got in my smelly hotel room and looked out the bolted window and saw that there was a gate outside the window with a huge chain and lock... More
