Pros: This is a beautiful, interesting, fully renovated, former military hospital tucked away in Coral Gables. Stay here if you like history, architecture and quirky touches as much as luxury. You will find it all.
Cons: the 18% service charge that is calculated on the taxed amount and added as printed line item on every receipt. Gratuity is OPTIONAL by definition and that 18% amount should be a guide on the left column of the receipt, not a printed line item on the right column.
Every server and bartender we encountered was male and every front desk person was female. The vibe this creates is sexist and very retro-in-a-bad-way.
