“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We stayed in Miami one night prior to a cruise. Very nice room. We upgraded to the executive level which gave us free hot buffet style breakfast. It was excellent. Nice view of Biscayne Bay and all the cruise ships in port. Slightly confusing if arriving by car and you do self park. Trying to find the entrance and then dealing with 2 separate elevators you are not sure where you are supposed to go. A little bit of signage would help. It was a good location in Miami. Staff at the lobby bar were helpful as well as those at the front desk. I would stay there again. I understand this hotel used to be the Omni. Parking is $25.00 a night.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the cruise port and Biscayne Bay.

We stayed at the Hilton Miami Downtown for two nights during the busy Christmas period, and although it was very busy, we were looked after with the professionalism we have come to expect from the Hilton brand. We stayed on the 17th floor with a great view of the bay.
The room was clean and tidy, modern decor and flat screen tv. Zip out check out on the phone saved time from the regular checking out process. Valet car parking was at $28 per day.

Thanks to a successfully Priceline bid, I stayed at the Hilton Miami Downtown for one night prior to a cruise. I was a bit concerned based on some of the less-than-stellar reviews here; however, this Hilton ended up being a decent place to stay, and I would stay again for the right price.

Cab fare from the airport is about $25 (including the gas surcharge and toll fare). Afternoon traffic is mostly leaving the downtown area, so I avoided any stop-and-go traffic.

Check in was fast and efficient.

I ended up with a room on 15th floor with a view of Biscayne Blvd and and bit of the bay. Overall, the room was clean and comfortable. The decor could use an update, as other note. The wifi signal was strong with no interruptions. In room wifi comes with a fee, otherwise you can use it in the lobby for free. My room was close to the elevator, and as with most hotel rooms in this location, I did hear some hallway noise and elevator dings, but nothing that was too annoying.

The only thing that is somewhat annoying is you have to take 2 elevators to exit the hotel - one from the street to the lobby, and then one from the lobby to your room.

There is a Burger King and Checkers right across the street, and a Publix one block down. This came in very handy, especially the sandwich counter that makes subs.

It's also very easy to do a very scenic run from the hotel, exiting onto Biscayne Blvd, going south to 15th ST / Venetian Causeway, and then running east down the causeway to Miami Beach.

Cab fare to the cruise port is about $15.

Thank you so much for providing such a detailed account of your stay at the Hilton Miami Downtown. A winter season cruise can be such an exciting experience and our hotel, located just minutes from the Port of Miami, provides the perfect pre or post cruise accommodations. Did you know we also offer some amazing cruise packages that include transportation to or from the port? From check in to check out, it is our goal that each and every guest enjoys an excellent stay and we are so glad you enjoyed your time here. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back again.

I travelled to Miami for Art Basel week as I do every year. What a great event. This was my first stay at this Hilton due to its location and I was extremely happy. The accommodations were ok, the room was clean but could be updated. The restaurant and lounge provided good food and good service. The employees were friendly and helpful. Luana, an employee in the lounge was so fantastic and on top of providing great service she was able to recommend so many places for my fiance and I to visit to enjoy the many restaurants, clubs and bars that were in South Beach, Downtown and throughout the design district. She certainly made us feel special and the extra attention she gave us went a long way. Miami is a scene that changes so frequently, so having someone who can make recommendations can make all the difference to having a great stay or not. I recommend this hotel and hope that you have as great a stay as my fiance and I.

We booked the Hilton for a one night stand so we could enjoy a concert. We were give a nice corner room on the 16th floor when I showed them my Hilton Honors crd. (I had purchased the room online at a great price). Good location, nice service. We would stay here again.

Melissa at the Gallery Lounge is absolutely wonderful!!! Great personality! Thank you Hilton! Very seldom so you get the opportunity in a bar environment to get world class service coupled with genuine concern for a customer. This is my spot in Miami, thanks again Hilton!

Coming from San Diego and staying in Miami for less than 24 hours, friendliness, promptness, and quality service is a must. My trip has definitely been exhausting so it's nice to unwind and find a convenient location within the hotel that's actually been a very memorable one. To the lovely ladies, who assisted me today, Miss Melissa and Miss Angelina... Thanks for turning my frown upside down :-) See you girls soon!
