“Historic Hotel in Quiet Neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2010

As everyone has mentioned, this hotel is grand, historic and in a quiet residential neighborhood. It is distant from restaurants and any sort of nightlife. If you want to get away from the typical Miami scene, this is a great choice.
We had a junior king suite overlooking the pool and golf course.
Everything was very clean.
The room had a seperate living room area from the bedroom area.
The bathroom was clean but it only had a shower/tub combo with a shower curtian. It could be updated.
There is valet parking for a fee and free self=parking.
The pool was warm when we went and service was readily available for drink orders.
The pool itself needs to be redone. There was rust on some parts of the pool fool and it looks like it needs to be repainted.
Breakfast was great in the outside courtyard - fresh fruit!
Dinner at their famous restaurant - Palme d' Or - was a disappointment. This restauarant has won numerous awards and is rated #1 in Miami by Zagats. The food was nothing special for all the expectations and service needs some polishing. I could eat somewhere else.

An overnight stay at The Biltmore was just a little overnight getaway for us since we live in South Florida but it may as well have been in Europe since we really felt like we got away. It was on my list of the 5 hotels I want to stay in but haven't yet. It completely lived up to my hopes. From the moment you arrive you know you are in for a treat...it is simply beautiful...the architecture, the entrance, grounds, lobby, rooms and of course....that beautiful pool. I've stayed in many amazing hotels in my life from the Breakers in Palm Beach to The Jasper Park Lodge and the Biltmore is right in line with any 5 star hotel. While I didn't feel completely catered to like I have in other 5 star hotels, the service wasn't bad. For those who are looking to stay here who might not be on a budget be prepared...it it's not cheap....one long island ice tea at the bar was $20....breakfast for 2 was $55. With that said, just the ambiance alone was worth the price We had dinner on South Beach at Spiga (good affordable and romantic)...so I can't talk too much about the food at the Biltmore. Breakfast (eggs benedict) however, was delicious

I stayed at the Biltmore for 4 nights in April as part of vacations, with my wife. We got a promotional rate at the hotel web site. Hotel is incredibly nice and fancy. Everything is huge, suntuous, and extremely beautiful. Even so the hotel is old, it has been refurbished several times, and infrastructure can be considered good. Only exception could be the TV sets (2 at the same room), that were 20 inches, and old (image not clear). Everything else was remarkable. The largest swimming pool you will ever see in your life. Definitely a place to stay at least once in a lifetime.

i immensely enjoyed my visit to the Biltmore...a little out of the way, but when you drive up to the entrance you just know you chose wisely for your stay in Miami. We had to do some business in Miami and in Ft. Lauderdale but really, nothing was that far away...and when you returned...just heaven.. the staff, the food, the atmosphere, the golf course, the comfy bed that i had trouble leaving in the morning....I can not say enough...i feel lucky to have found this place.. you will too

I stayed here for a conference on the grounds, and the hotel was excellent. I was in room 340, which faced the front of the hotel, and was a regular room. The rooms were very quiet, in that at no time did I ever hear anyone in adjoining rooms, and the hallway noise was minor. The room maids did a great job, and everyone I encountered was pleasant and helpful.
The only real complaint I have is that there was no store to purchase little snack items, nor was there a coffee maker in the room. The food at the restaurants was good, and some of my colleagues used the hotel town car to travel to local shopping areas.
The bathrooms are spacious with lots of counter and shelf space. There were also lots of drawers for use. The bed was extremely comfortable, too, and lighting was adequate to read. The small table in the room could have been a bit larger since I wanted to do a bit of paperwork.
The towels were fluffy and there were 2 terry robes in the room, along with slippers. The climate controls worked well, and were responsive to temperature change. The elevators were fast, despite their vintage.
The conference facilities were excellent, too. The chairs were comfortable and adjustable, and the main room was auditorium style. The acoustics were excellent, and the seating provided individual lamps.
Overall, a very elegant hotel.

I recently returned from a 3 day mid-week stay at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, FL. Our company hosted a client event which included a cocktail party and heavy hors d'oeuvres in a beautiful room, terrace. The service during the event was outstanding. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and attentive. The food was great. We received a lot of compliments from our clients.

We employees were lucky enough to have a couple of days to enjoy the resort. A few of us enjoyed the fitness center -which was great. We took a couple of classes with wonderful instructors. We had breakfast at the 19th Hole Grill. The view of the golf course was wonderful and so was the food and service.

The rooms were nice and the beds were great. The staff was friendly and attentive. The resort is kept very clean.



I recommend a stay at the Biltmore.
