“Very short but very nice stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We ended up here overnight due to a flight cancellation caused by Hurricane Sandy. Although our stay was very brief (maybe 9 hours), we were impressed with the quality of the room, especially the sheets, which were very comfortable. My husband initially booked an inexpensive room through Priceline, but we were upgraded, so I can't speak for the quality of all the rooms, but ours was spacious, and did not feel like a typical hotel room at all. The view was excellent (out towards the bay and the basketball arena), and we received good service as well. The staff was helpful and responsive to small requests. The bathroom did lack some privacy (the toilet and shower are separated from the bed area by only a frosted glass wall), which was fine for me and my husband, but could be a problem for some, so keep that in mind. Also, because our stay was so short, we didn't get a chance to check out the amenities (pool, bar, etc.). But we are confident they would have been great, based on our experience with the room and service. Highly recommended.

Couldn't fault the hotel or staff. We were given a free upgrade to an executive room which was beautiful and had fantastic views over Miami Port. Great location and facilities. We wiill definitely stay again.

I was surprised when I walked into the room and realized how spacious it was. The furninture and decoration are also superb. The friendliness of the housekeeping is something to highlight.
The amenities were also fantastic as well as the bath soap and shampoo. It is definetely not pricey for the quality of the room.

Room Tip: Choose a double deluxe room, best deal!

I really cannot understand all the positive comments about this hotel.
It's ok if you get it for a cheap rate but it's far away from a nice accomodation.

The whole property is running on a very low cost level, which you can feel everywhere. There is no atmosphere in the lobby or bar area. On the poolside they're trying to immitate cool south beach properties by playing loud music, but that's more disturbing than anything else.

The balcony door in our room was not closing. I asked to fix that several times. One time someone showed up, had a look at this but nothing happened. So we had to sleep 3 nights with an open door! No appologies from the front desk, which was by the way quite disinterested.

Check out was rude. No question about our stay, just argiung about a wrong position check.

Cannot reccomend this hotel!

Very spacious! Enjoyed the hotels infinity pools. The hotel had a very modern feel and beautiful architecture. Ritzy, but pricey. We paid $9 for bottled water in room. The Balcony was huge! Lots of room to stretch out. Great hotel, great stay, if you bring your own water.

Reception was gracious enough to upgrade us to a corner suite. What a room! Views of AA center, Freedom Tower and Miami Beach. So spacious and relaxing with a giant deck. Only drawback is construction across the street of a new science center...not a big deal. Super comfortable bed, sweet bathroom with a tv in the mirror, and a gigantic closet. Amuse has a great menu and friendly staff. Everyone on staff we encountered was pleasant and asked if we needed anything. 5 minutes to Miami Beach and the people mover to downtown is right up the street. Go for it.

Thank you for recognizing exactly what we stand for an “oasis in downtown” Glad to hear we were able to get you in our corner deluxe room which is our 3rd largest room category, so you can imagine how much space our Junior and Biscayne suites provide. We have the Art and Science Museum being built right across the street from the property which will be a great view in about a year when all construction is completed. Thank you for recommending people to “go for it” and we look forward to your next visit with us. If we can help with anything please contact us at concierge@casamodernamiami.com

Yes, the bathroom does not have huge privacy, so if you are on for a family pack in where you need a private bathroom, think again. Otherwise, I cannot fault this property. The rooms are spacious with excellent amenities - lovely shower and bath in the 'wet room', high quality beds and bed linen which make for an excellent night's sleep. No noise from above, side etc. even though the hotel was full. Very friendly and courteous staff. The two pools on the 15th floor are superb areas, with an infinity pool that has amazing views out across the Port and towards South Beach. There is quite a lot of traffic noise at the pool, but you are in a very busy area of Miami. Great if you are watching something at the AA arena as only 5 mins walk, and then Bayside is just beyond for shops, eating, boat tours and music. We will certainly stay again.

Room Tip: Higher floors will have the best view, but then you could probably guess that!
