I recently spent 3 magical nights at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, and would absolutely recommend the property to anyone wishing to immerse him/herself in 1920's Old World elegance and attention to decorative detail that is sure to awe the senses from the moment one passes the monumental entryway. The immediate neighborhood is worth a short afternoon drive, as it was not damaged by major Hurricanes and maintains a breathtaking 1920's old Florida atmosphere. Prices on the property are astronomical so a short drive to Coconut Grove or Miami may be necessary. Pool area = fantastic. Staff = perfect. Would definitely return. No beaches nearby though, so a car ride is a must to take in the tropical rays Ocean side.
