I just stayed at this hotel last weekend with an old friend. This hotel totally exceeded my expectations. The architecture and design was stunning, especially the lobby area. Our room was just beautiful. We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite. Talk about views!!! And we had TWO balconies, one off the HUGE and gorgeous bathroom. Bed was extremely comfortable. There was even a computer in the the living room for internet use (i don't know if there was a charge). Even the hallways of the hotel were bright, and modern, and didn't feel like an old stuffy hotel - or even a hotel at all for that matter - felt more like a fancy condo building. And everything was SO CLEAN!!!
Not only was the hotel beautiful, the service was excellent across the board. From the bellmen, to reception (Seth is awesome and SOO Nice!), the concierge (Reuben was very knowledgeable, friendly and secured us hair appointments in a snap), to the pool boys (accomodated us and visiting friends and their babies with a great attitude and immediately brought us ice waters), to the housekeeping staff and room service (we called at 3:00 am to have the pull-out couch made up for sleeping and they were there in under five minutes; also ordered room service at 3:00 am and they were very prompt and friendly). While this hotel is not on the beach, it is so beautiful with excellent service, great amenities (multiple, beautiful pools with great views, excellent spa - Exhale - and gym), and excellent location if you are going to be traveling to multiple places in and around Miami. I would highly recommend it!!
