The Biltmore is a beautiful older hotel tucked away in Coral Gables. We stayed here for a wedding and received the room block price - which was still expensive for the tiny room we got, but nicely appointed and comfortably furnished. We were told that the hotel was sold out for the night, but it never appeared to be too crowded. We stayed on the 4th floor overlooking the front of the hotel, and when the windows were closed, we couldn't hear a thing.
Around 10pm the first night, I had laid down to get some rest, and somebody from housekeeping came into our room - I don't know if it was to offer turn down service or what, but I couldn't imagine why they would come in so late. She appologized profusely and I just kept the "do not disturb" sign on the door after that.
One thing that did irk me during our stay was when we were getting ready for the wedding in one of the suites (5th floor). We had several people in the room (bridesmaids, hair/makeup people, etc.) and we needed more glasses as there were only 2 in the room. I called the front desk to please bring up some more cups to drink from and they charged the bride to bring up empty glasses for drinking. A bit absurd when you're paying the prices they are charging for the rooms themselves, let alone the suites.
We did not get to try the brunch on Sunday morning which I hear is amazing, and overall, we had a nice stay.
