Staying in the heart of Coral Gables is always a treat. There's always a good clean buzz about it (unlike the sweaty/chlamydia buzz of South beach). A great location, nearby there are some great restaurants, lovely territory for running/walking, and a few bars.
Arriving to be greeted by the valets, and then walking through the colonnades to a very smart escalator, one really feels to have arrived.
Welcome at reception was excellent, and check in efficient. Bags were delivered to rooms (not mine, mine were lost in transit by our airline).
The rooms were large, well presented, and we had a great view over Coral Gables, and towards Coconut Grove. A huge bed, easy chairs and that ubiquitous television, mineral water (not complimentary), mini bar and more telephones than a Mumbai call centre.
Ordering room service was a pleasure. Melissa took care of our needs, even suggesting food to help me with my indecisiveness. She sent some chocolate covered strawberries as a treat, a nice touch for which I am very grateful.
I spent mornings on the fantastic roof terrace, in the pool and reading on the loungers. I rather wish they would ban children from this area, and offer a poolside bar service. Essentially, they could make it more "playboy mansion".
Service at reception was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything was dealt with with the utmost professionalism.
Surprisingly the hotel does not offer free WIFI.
Altogether top class, this hotel comes with my highest recommendation.
