If you appreciate the detail that goes into restored historic hotels you have to visit the Biltmore. We stayed in an upper floor junior suite overlooking the golf course and appreciated the understated appointments. Management has done a good job keeping the charm (gotta love the wood paneling in the elevators!) while making this a property that works in 2013. The staff is fantastic. We enjoyed a drink in the golf course bar and the bartender was very personable. The pool area is a nice retreat. The spa is small but nicely done. We went to a dinner in the one of the ballrooms and the décor reminded me of a European salon. We also indulged in the Sunday brunch which was fabulous - the quality champagne alone was worth the price. We would highly recommend this as a quiet place to stay in the Miami area.
