Since the beginning of 2012, have either stayed here or at the Hampton Inn - Doral (more on this property in a separate review), several times and am happy with both. Minor differences and offerings between the two separate properties.
This Homewood Suite is closer to MIA Airport, about a 15 minute drive to the MIA Rental Car Center, than the Hampton Inn mentioned above, with a complimentary airport shuttle available 24 hours. No jacuzzi, but you can use the one in the HIlton Garden Inn next door. Plenty of free outdoor parking. Breakfasts are generous and tasty, with varied entrees, (unlike Embassy Suites), and the complimentary dinners (Mon. - Thu.) are almost always delicious.
I really liked the full-sized refrigerator and the completely-equipped kitchen, which is why this is a great choice for extended stays. Road Warriors or families can buy supplies and prepare them in your suite. The neighborhood seems safer than areas closer to MIA, on 36th Street, but just in case, there is a 24-hour Security Patrol in the parking lot, (the car has these weird flashing green lights). You can also work from your room, (complimentary wireless internet) and I would recommend getting the two-room suites, as this is what makes it different from regular hotels. You never get nickled and dimed, unlike other hotels.
If on an upper floor, you hear a "Whoosh" that's a plane coming in for a landing, but is not loud or bothersome.
If you're looking for a comfortable, clean, modern hotel, close to the MIA Airport, and within easy driving distance of the Dolphin Mall, you can't go wrong here! However, if looking for a luxury property, with 24-Hour room service, restaurants, bars, plenty of meeting rooms, stay elsewhere.
