There aren't many choices of hotels in Bal Harbour. I wanted to stay at One Bal Harbour but it was more than my maximum company budget. I ended up at DaddyO and I really regret it. It was very noisy--I was in a room near to the lobby on the 1st floor and there was some kind of party going on there after 11PM. You can hear the people talking in the next room, and people walking upstairs. The wifi was terrible. It kept going in and out and it was excruciatingly slow. As a business traveler, getting a good night's sleep and having a reliable wifi connection are both a must. Both of these were terrible in this hotel. The service was also very poor. The staff were pleasant enough, but they are understaffed. I asked for a remote control for my TV, since it was missing in my room. I had to call back 30 minutes later because I still hadn't received it. The staff were just too busy to bring one to me. The check-in was also very slow, since there is only one person at the front desk. The air conditioning in the room is very frustrating. It either makes the room too cold or too warm, and it was impossible to get the temperature right. The rooms are shabby at best. They try to be trendy, and perhaps at one point, they were, but the furnishings just look cheap and dated. There is no gym or pool. On the positive side, the hotel is very well located (within walking distance) to the Shops at Bal Harbour, it's cheap, and the restaurant next door (The Palm) is excellent. But, next time I will stay at The Standard in Miami Beach and take a taxi 30 minutes into Bal Harbour to avoid having to stay at this very mediocre hotel.
