We really enjoyed staying here for a long weekend away from Wisconsin snow and labor unrest. The hotel has great "wow" factor, especially for our teenage kids, who were in awe of the tower, high ceilings and endless pool. We are an athletic family and really enjoyed the use of the health club, which isn't just a small room with mirrors but an active club with excellent classes and instructors that serves the hotel and the Coral Gables community. I loved running in Coral Gables. The houses are incredible, and I stumbled across the Venetian Pool, built in a former quarry, just a few blocks from our hotel. We spent a few hours there even though the Biltmore has its own pool. We also enjoyed Coral Gable's "miracle mile" of shops and restaurants, and we went to Coconut Grove for dinner (loved Lulu and Green Street Cafe). We thought we would tour the Everglades and visit downtown Miami, but the Biltmore was so nice and relaxing that we didn't leave much aside from shopping and eating. Only a few downsides: the food and drinks are typically expensive for a hotel of this quality, although they offer happy hour specials. Also, our room overlooked the pool, which was great... until we stayed over a Saturday night and the sound from the wedding below us echoed off the stucco walls and kept us awake. I'm also concerned about the use of pesticides and was saddened to see the groundskeepers apply it to the grass surrounding the hotel. It was windy (pesticide isn't supposed to be applied under windy conditions) and some got in my daughter's eye as we walked past. I hope The Biltmore, with their hybrid parking spaces, shows a deeper commitment to being "green" by reconsidering their application of products that are known carcinogens.
