We stayed here as we were on a strict budget and needed to be close to the train station. Indigo does not pick you up from MIA. There are far cheaper hotels in the Miami area but we wanted something a bit upscale for our pre-cruise stay.
The hotel is not as close the the Dadeland South station as I had hoped and we had to drag our bags for about 7 blocks. We did not know at the time but we could have called the hotel for a pick up but it would have been a wait.
On arrival we received a friendly reception and were in our room in minutes. The room was decorated in a funky, vibrant scheme that we loved. The bath was clean and roomy and everything worked fine. We were given a room on the west side away from the highway as there was no noise and we slept well.
We were able to arrange for a ride to and from the nearby mall and to the train station on departure the next morning. The Dadeland Mall is within walking distance but under a highway bridge and across a very busy street so we wisely took the hotel shuttle. Across the street from the Indigo is a small mall with a great bakery/deli where you can get breakfast for a few dollars. There are other restaurants but we did not try them.
I normally avoid hotel restaurants as there is so much to chose on the outside but we did not rent a car so we had dinner at the Indigo. The food was a mixed experience, my burger was great but my wife was not impressed with her lobster pasta dish as it was not hot when served. On the plus side, we ate outside in a quiet, wonderful patio area that was very relaxing and attractive.
This is a great hotel but I would be careful if I had a car as the parking lot was congested during our visit. Is is close enough to the train station if you wish to save a few dollars and aggravation on a rental car, but still have lots to do in the area. Would definitely stay here again.
