“Hard to beat...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Truly an exceptional place. Architecture alone is impressive, but the caliber and care of the service is what really sets the standard. Every staff member (with one exception) was professional, caring and focused on assuring our stay was flawless.
The pool is an experience in itself...largest in the country, amazing facility and, again, wonderful service.
Our room, upgraded, was spotlessly clean, comfortable and large.
Dining experience was very good. Service attentive and high quality preparation.
It is located by itself, so any wandering requires, in our case, cab...but why wander? Relax and enjoy!
Obviously not cheap, but worth the expense.

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.

This was a great location. Easy for relaxing and enjoying free time. I had a business meeting for a portion of the trip, but the remaining days were fabuluos. Spa was very relaxing and had so many amenities I was unaware of. I would love to go back again.

We has a terrible time at the Westin Colonnade and we decided to go to the Biltmore, wow we should have done it the first time. As a native Miami native, I am not proud to say that other than golf I never stayed at this landmark, shame on me.
We were greater like royalty, Pavel our bellmen not only took car of our bags, but gave us a tour of the facility. The room (1402) was located in the tower and was one of three rooms on that floor (great). The nostalgia in this place was incredible. We had a fantastic view of Coral Gables and Downtown Miami. Now if you want ultra modern, state of the art rooms, this is not the place for you, but if you want to see and feel how it was like back in the day when Capone was the man and everyone looked and treated you like you were related, this is the place.
The pool was fantastic and the food at Fontana was fantastic.
Take the time and come and enjoy this magnificent classic jewel in Coral Gables. I kno we will.

Room Tip: You must stay in the Tower if possible, one of the best rooms in the place.

My boyfriend is currently studying at Miami University, while I'm studying in New York, so this five-night break was incredibly important to us. The Biltmore Hotel absolutely delivered! We had a perfect few days. The room had a wonderful ambiance, the hotel itself is beautiful (its architecture, art, and decor), and the pool is lovely. We also dined in room, by the pool, and by the golf course, and found everything to be deilcious. We had an amazing time, and were sad to leave! Hopefully we can come back some time. Oh, and the hotel provides a car service to local areas, which is just fantastic, and saves on the stress of taking a taxi - you can even call them to pick you up when you're finished shopping/eating/whatever!

We recently stay two nights at this stunning hotel. Everyone was pleasant & charming. The pool was enormous but chilly...my children did not mind and enjoyed. Upon reading the history of Biltmore Hotel, I was amazed to learn that the same architects designed Breakers in Palm Beach & Waldorf Astoria in NY. We spent our last two winter holidays at these locations and appreciate their history and beauty. I would recommend this hotel and enjoy the open courtyard and Italian Restaurant, sneak in a facial or body massage!

This was our second stay at the Biltmore in Coral Gables and it was simply lovely. The service is outstanding. The attention to details is unmatched. I had requested the same suite we had stayed in previously and they obliged. They provided robes for everyone including my small children and had cookies every night for turn down service. The room was very clean and the beds are so comfortable its like sleeping on a cloud. We ordered room service on two separate occasions and it was wonderful both times. Every staff member that we encountered was friendly and courteous. We hope to make the Biltmore part of our annual visit to Miami.
