This is an absolutely beautiful hotel! My family and I stayed the weekend of March 21, 2008. We are a family of five and were able to all stay in one room (junior suite). The room was huge, extremely clean, decorated tastefully and had a lovely view. There was not one single speck of mold in the bathroom - which is not only amazing for a hotel but almost impossible for a hotel in Florida! The architecture was fabulous - picture postcard perfect. The service was gracious and very prompt. When we checked in, I called the front desk to request a roll-away and it arrived in under 10 minutes and was large and very clean. Another request was for towels and more than enough were brought in fairly quick time. Front desk staff, valets and restaurant staff were all very courteous and attentive. I only have two complaints: the bed could have been more comfortable (pillowtop sagging toward middle) and the gorgeous courtyard restaurant was quite expensive with very small portions served.
The Biltmore is in a residential neighborhood with very little to do in the immediate area but is very convenient to the University of Miami. Before booking, I read some negative reviews of this hotel on another travel site but I do not share those opinions and would absolutely recommend staying here.
