I stayed at the Residence Inn Aventura February 18-21, 2013. The lobby was smaller, but welcoming. Checkin was easy and the associates were friendly for late in the evening. There is a small market for beverages and snacks to the side. Room was clean and neat, layout was good. Complimentrary breakfast served each morning had quite a lot to offer, everyone should be able to find something to eat. The hotel was located right next door to the Aventura Mall and was a short walk, In addition, there is a Walgreens around the corner. I walked to both locations in the evening and felt safe. There is quite a bit of foot traffic on this road. While I did not use the pool, it looked acceptable.
