Our mission in travel is to find the best deal for the absolute least amount of money. Yes, we are cheapskates. We needed a Miami hotel before a cruise and spent a lot of time doing research for the best deal. Because price is so important to us, we booked the Hotel New Yorker. It was easy to find in our rental car and we were allowed early check-in for which we were very grateful because we had been flying all night. We had requested a room facing the pool, advice from this website because outside rooms can be noisy, and this was granted. The room itself was a little rough, curtain falling down over the little window, the door jam had been poorly repaired and painted near the lock which made us wonder about security, there was a little kitchen which had never been used (I hope), a small bathroom and an old television. The room was very quiet. The bed was good and we slept well because of our lack of sleep the night before. Parking can be crowded when the hotel is full. Breakfast at the outside patio was hit and miss when a sudden downpour sent people scattering in all directions in the middle of toast and coffee.
While the hotel was not really up to three star standard, it was the best price for the least amound of money that we could find, and we give top marks for that. The office staff did everything possible to make us feel welcome and we appreciate that too, but it was rough around the edges and there was an overall feeling of 'spiders lurking in corners'. If we were returning to Miami we would probably stay there again unless a better deal presented itself. We made the booking through Expedia.
