Five days / four nights in this Coral Gables Castle past like a dream! Rebuilt and renovated, The Biltmore evokes the era of Dusenburgs and Auburns in the drive, when now Audis, BMWs, Lexis and Caddys check in.
We had a suite, clean, comfortable, cool; accessed by stair only off the main lobby in the wing of the hotel. Regular rooms are located in the tower of the hotel. The motif is tile and plaster in earth tones in what we now think of as "florida style". The Biltmore Hotel and Country Club was built in 1925-26. Good taste remains good style.
There are bird cages in the lobby. Breakfast can be made in the outside fountain court. Gardens surround court yards, the pools, meeting rooms and other ground floor areas. Of course, where flora meets ground floors there are interesting fauna (animals) scampering about. This is Florida, you ninny's!
We had several excellent meals at the hotel, as well as dining off-site. Locals spoke of the popularity of Sunday Brunch, with lines outside the dinning room proving the endorsement. Check their website for events. We did not try their top restaurant, the Palm d'Or.
The Biltmore is located in Coral Gables, amid the Country Club for Golf, and a short drive from South Beach and Key Biscayne. If the beach is not your thing, and luxury, golf and spa are, the Biltmore is the place!
