We were looking for a place with a reasonable rate yet still close to the Coconut Grove Arts Festival (normally held during Presidents Day weekend), and found it at this hotel. It's on the edge of Coral Gables (in fact just a block away from the upscale shopping & restaurant mecca known as the "Miracle Mile"), though actually within Miami city limits. Several major bus lines run in front of or a block from the hotel, and just a few more blocks away is a free trolley which runs along Ponce De Leon (north-south within Coral Gables). We were able to hop on for an 8-minute ride to the Metro Station, where continuous Festival Shuttles awaited. So it was a fraction of the cost of lodging in the area that weekend compared to even the normally mid-priced hotels in Coconut Grove! It was quite an impressive arts festival (a sample of photos are included), which also had smaller and less costly adjacent booth areas (one which was on church grounds and was well worth a buck!). The rooms were adequate in size for our needs, with a full kitchen (though no over or icemaker). The in-hotel laundromat contained new and ample equipment, and the front desk was attentive and courteous. We understood that it exists mainly as a business destination, but found it to be just right for us on that special weekend...and we could party in bustling Coconut Grove and still get a good night's rest.
