3 of us (2 adults, 1 tween) stayed at this hotel for 4 nights August 23 - 27, 2012. The purpose of our trip was to visit Miami before boarding our cruise.
1 Location was very ideal and central, near the airpot, shopping malls (15 minutes drive), gas stations, highway and dining choices. We were able to drive to Downtown Miami and Miami Beach within 30 - 40 mintues and Little Havana, Coral Gables and the airport under 30 minutes
2 Complementary breakfast and parking. Hot and cold breakfast items. Supper is also served Monday - Thursday. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate is available in the lobby around the clock.
3 Full kitchen, with stove, fridge, dishwasher, pots, and dishes. We didn't use it as we spent a lot of time in the city
4 We stayed in a Studio Room - includes a King bed and Sofa Bed
5 I think hotel offers shuttle to Dolphin Mall, and shuttle to the Port of Miami for about $12. We had a rental car, so didn't use this option
6 The property and the rooms were very clean
7 Front desk staff was very friendly. We had to stay the 4th night, because our cruise got delayed due to Tropical Storm Isaac. The front desk staff, Diego and Dayana, and another girl were exteremly helpful. We got good rate for the extra night, plus they let us stay in the room and lobby while we were waiting for the Port of Miami to open and board the cruise. The manager recommended restaurants and other shopping places.
We had an overall excellent experience.
