So my latest trip to Miami for business was not to the classy Delano but the more utilitarian Courtyard Coral Gables some way inland.
It's right on the busy road just 10 minutes from the airport and close to the company's Miami office.
That's handy of course and I have no complaints about the clean but utterly style-less accommodation and facilities. Glamour - it isn't: from the puny swimming pool and gym to the ordinary breakfast, it won't get your pulse racing.
Bacon ran out at breakfast and one day the staff were so interested in themselves I don't get a coffee.
But for decent value functional comfort close to one of the business areas it's OK.
If, like me, you like the Miami glamour, you can grab a $35 cab for the 10 mile ride to Miami Beach for one night of seafront cocktails.
