As I was passing through Miami, with only one day to spare, on a whim I decided to contact the Biltmore to see if I could get a room for only one night. The reservations person worked wonderfully with me, gave me a fantastic rate that I did not expect from a hotel like the Biltmore, and allowed me to check in early in the day. I was very impressed with the hotel and the service. I spent several hours relaxing by their incredibly beautiful pool. One of the absolute best poolscapes I've ever seen. That night, the turn down service was a wonderful surprise. I truly felt pampered. The only downside, the cost of food in any of the restaurants is exhorbitant. I did have lunch by the pool and the food was good, the service impeccable, but was over priced. After reviewing the menus of the other restaurants in the hotel, I decided to drive over to Miracle Mile, an avenue of shops and restaurants in Coral Gables, and eat there. In my room I had a fully stocked mini bar and snack tray, however I felt that the cost for these items was also over priced so I avoided those. However, the atmosphere, the beautiful room, and the excellent service was world class. A beautiful hotel, well worth the visit.
