I recently spent a weekend here thanks to a company trip. Going all the way to the Miami area, we had hoped to be on the beach but the Biltmore is in a residential area of Coral Gables. It offers a lovely pool and the main building is beautiful and has been lovingly restored. Our room was tiny and laid out in an odd way. Some of the other couples in our group made similar comments about the small and ackward rooms. For example, the bed was wedged into a space so small that if you sat on it, your knees hit the wall on both sides. The bathroom was very small and the tub did not drain at all when the shower was running. On the nice side, the service was wonderful, the towels were fluffy, the employees were helpful, the on-site restaurants were all very good. The negatives, aside from small rooms--the spa is average at best. The hair salon was dirty and worn out looking. There is really nothing to do for kids. Loads of meeting rooms and space. Everyone we saw seemed to be part of a corporate group. I think they cater to groups as leisure travellers will want the beach. All in all, not a bad weekend but I can't see any reason to even return on my own.
