As one might expect from an high end downtown hotel, this one had it all and more than we could take advantage of in our long weekend. They are supposed to have a terrific spa and health club, which we did not have time to experience. Service was friendly and helpful, rooms were spotless and very well appointed. The bed and bedding was comfortable as well, and it was nice to have the sofa in the junior suite which it turned out was not too much more in price than their standard room. There are three pools on the 15th floor and a great view over Biscayne Bay. One pool is great for lap swimming since it is probably 150 feet long. You really could not go wrong staying here. The Club 50 on the top floor, with inside bar, outside bar, and rooftop pool is very nice as well.
My only negative comments are that the lobby seemed small, and you would not feel comfortable sitting in it for any length of time. I also forget that a downtown hotel will charge you for parking. The daily rate was $30. Factor that into your budget. The hotel information said they have a courtesy car where they will take you anywhere within a 2 mile radius which would include the Bayside shopping and entertainment area and the American Airlines Arena for basketball, etc. We did not use it. However, for the cost of parking, it may be worth taking cabs to/from the airport and South Beach, and the courtesy vehicle to/from Bayside.
