“An elegant place for a relaxing stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Whenever it happens I have the time to spend a couple of days (or more) in Miami area, I like to stay at this very comfortable Hotel, which is conveniently placed, close to the Miracle Mile, (the perfect place for shopping and enjoy good restaurants).
The hotel is very clean and offers very spacious and comfortable rooms; people working there (at the front desk, bell captain, etc.) are very courteous and willing to help whenever you ask for anything.
The only thing which needs to be improved a lttle bit, is the breakfast.
My last stay was one year ago, but I forgot to write down my comments, so I do it now, just 15 days before getting there again for another 2 nights stay (May 3 and 4).

This hotel is in the middle of the Coral Gables, great area for shopping and dining. But, the location isn't what made the week for me, or the comfortable beds Westin is famous for...it was my room that made it. I had an exercise bike, dumbbells and an exercise ball...and plenty of room to workout. It was fantastic. Apparently each room had some sort of unique feature or layout. You're probably wondering what room number I had? 305.

Room Tip: Room 305 had all the makings of a home gym

Location was probably the best thing about this hotel. That and the comfy white couches by the pool.
The actual swimming pool was average as were the spacious rooms.
Room service was large and lovely. The breakfast was average for an American hotel although there was plenty to choose from.
I wouldn't rush back to this hotel, but it did the job and the price was very reasonable.

Once grand, now tired. Needs a refresh desperately. Furniture is old and beat up. Rooms are large and clean and staff is great. On a main street with good food and coffee options. A $40 cab ride to South Beach. A decent option to stay in Coral Gables.

Stayed at this hotel as this was where a wedding reception was being held. The check in was pleasant, and it was very busy, with a lot of guest arriving at the same time. The room was great and the furnishings were spot on. The room had an oversized bath and room service was prompt and quite good food. The recption for the wedding was just as pleasant. Location is downtown Coral Gables with in walking distance of everything in Coral gables.

I stayed at the Westin Colonnade for just one night, but it was worth it. I was there for a wedding, and since I was part of the bridal party, we decided to rent a room for the night. I got there at 10am and spent most the day in the bridal suite. It was great! Very spacious, with fantastic views of the city. The wedding ceremony and reception were both at the hotel, and the location for each were spectacular. The staff are very friendly, and quick to respond with any help you may need. The complimentary water with cucumber and watermelon in the lobby was a plus. And I was able to add the valet charge to the room, which was convenient. The room I stayed in was huge. Regular king size bed, with a pool view. It was very spacious with two arm chairs, a big bathroom with separate sink area and big closet! The best part of the bathroom area is that it had a full length mirror!! You don't get that at most hotels, so I was very happy about it. I wasn't able to enjoy a lot of the hotel amenities, but in regards to the rooms, it was perfect.

Room Tip: The pool view rooms are spacious, and has great views. BUT it's a long walk down the hall. Would...

Having stayed all over Miami the first positive of this hotel was its location, barely 15 minutes from the airport. Coral Gables is a very pleasant place to spend a few days: a place to escape from rather than rival the madness at SoBe.
When we arrived on a busy Friday night we were met at reception by Daniel Balzeca, who was an absolute delight: friendly but not overly intrusive, helpful and welcoming, he really made us feel welcome straight away. In general the standard of service was excellent with whoever was at front desk always happy to help and typically going above and beyond.
We had a split level suite on the fifth floor with a rickety spiral staircase separating the living area from the bedroom. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was compact but well appointed and we had a reasonable view over Miracle Mile.
Overall we enjoyed our three night stay: the building is impressive but the hotel itself does not quite have the wow factor to justify five stars (although it is great value for money). On service alone however you will struggle to find anywhere better in Miami.
