“Nice stay - nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Very nice hotel. Close to the Miami airport. They offer a free shuttle service to and from the airport. The hotel staff and shuttle drivers were all very friendly. The room was very clean. Stayed here two nights - one as a pre and one as a post cruise stay. The Courtyard and Marriott hotel are also in this complex. The Courtyard offers a restauant as well as the Marriott. The Marriott offers a Starbucks. Everything is in easy walking distance.
Would highly recommend!

We chose this hotel based on the Trip Advisor recommendations. It lived up to the statements made about it. We selected a suite which enabled us to have a separate bedroom so that my wife could catch up on her sleep, after a very early start to fly from the west coast to Miami, while I used the free wi fi to catch up on E mails, before our cruise. The shuttle buses from the air port are free and frequent. There was no noise from either traffic...as there really was none, nor the airport. It is a quite spot. They also have a shuttle to the cruise port at $10.000 per person but there is also a flat fee for taxi service of $25 which gives you the convenience of setting your own time. The receptionist put us in a first floor unit that was spacious, well appointed and supplied. The afternoon social hour had a buffet that could have been adequate for dinner had we not wanted to go our to the nearby restaurant. And, the breakfast buffet had most of what your expect, BUT, I ate near the end of the time for breakfast (9:30) and several items were already gone, so it is better to eat earlier. In all, it is a good choice for an overnight before a cruise.

Room Tip: The main floor is very convenient

We stayed at this hotel during March Break and have nothing but good things to say. Originally we had booked a suite for two nights but ended up staying the entire week. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was good and most of all the staff was so friendly! Everytime we walked in or out of the hotel we were smiling faces from Richard, Nathalia or Laura and it made our trip to Miami even better :)

We planned a little family reunion and booked a two rooms apartment at this hotel. Since the moment we arrived were greeted by the front desk lady (Natalia) which help us any way possible giving us tips of the restaurants and attractions nearby and hotel services and facilities as well. Also to notice that Natalia is perfectly fluent in spanish language as well the rest of front desk personnel was courteous and professional but only a lady with asian looks need to improve her people interphase.

Hotel lobby was big and very accommodating, breakfast are was a little small and you can expect some problems getting tables, in a few occasions with sat at the outside tables that with the airplane noise were not very appealing for relax.

Hotels room /apartment are very well sound isolated and big.

Thing to improve:

Room needs to be clean with more dedication to details, in more than one occasion rooms was not clean, no fresh towels were provided and not even the garbage can was emptied. Hallways should be vacuumed daily and remove some litter from the rooms door of some careless guests.

Park was included for free since we stayed for more than 6 days, but the card they gave you to leave /enter the gated entrance seems to work randomly and is little of hassle when you wait to leave and 3 cars ahead of you are having the same problems with the card.

Kudos for Natalia in the front desk, we were very well treated by her definitely a goid reason to return to this hotel.

which we chose to do from the TA reviews, wanted simple, easy, clean and close to the airport, all of which were fulfilled at this property. Staff, young, very helpful, eager to please and willing to give us tips on where to go for dinner etc. etc. Rooms are basic formula but done with some thought, i.e. colors were nice and complimended bedding, some artwork on the walls and bath clean , towells nice. Windows open which was a pleasure, like to get some "air" into the room when we walk in and get the medicinal smell out! Also had the best overhead reading lights ever..Rooms are suites, again we never use the suite area, but it was clean and we did put some wine in the fridge to have later. Breakfast was done nicely, oatmeal good for formula breakfasts, as was the coffee...sitting area was clean, and one could take things outside which was nice. Airport transportation was efficient and well planned. Minor negative was that the furniture in our room was already showing wear, chair arms worn etc. All in all a good choice.

Rarely have I met such nice and friendly desk staff as I dealt with at this Residence Inn. They made us feel very welcome and deserve to be commended for how they treat customers. As for the room, it was very spacious and offered a lot for the money--a kitchen, fast internet and a nice sitting area. Bed was reasonably soft but very few hotels (in my opinion) provide soft enough beds--but this one was pretty close. Breakfast was better than I expected. Although VERY crowded the quality was good--particularly the scrambled eggs (which are usually horrible on most hotel buffets). Not exactly cheap but a nice value.

Room Tip: Exercise room is small but equipment is in good shape--mostly treadmills and elliptical machines

I normally don't write reviews because I have two young kids and really don't have time. However I felt the need to write something about this hotel as it provided such a great hotel for me and my family. We booked the two bedroom suite for 1 night before our cruise. I had originally booked another hotel after the cruise but cancelled it after staying here the one night. First off, as soon as we walked in to this hotel, we were greeted with happy and friendly smiles from the staff Laura S, Nathalia and another girl, which I can't remember her name. I swear, I felt like I was walking into a relatives house where everyone was excited to see us!
The lobby, hotel room was clean and very modern. I loved the fact that the two bedroom suite has a washroom in each bedroom. It helped speed things up in the mornings when all 5 of us had to get ready. The kitchen comes fully equip with a fridge, microwave, sink, dishes and cups. They even provide you with a small liquid detergent to so your dishes or a packet to use the dishwasher! Downstairs on the main floor they have laundry machine and dryers for $2 per use. The free breakfast that is included in your fee is great! We were able to feed the kids breakfast (eggs, sausage, waffles, cereals, toasts etc) before we headed out! Coffee isn't bad either. If you're picky, there's a Starbucks next door too. Parking is $17 a day but the in/out access is easy to do with a swipe of your room key. Also, free internet!!!! This hotel is right by the airport with a free shuttle to the hotel and about 15-20 mins to the port of Miami and 15 mins to south beach. Overall an amazing value for the price!
The only sad part about this stay is that I didn't get to say good bye to the beautiful Laura S before I left.
