My friend and I were passing through Miami on a 15-hour layover on our way home from volunteering in South America. One of the managers ended up being our shuttle driver from the airport back to the cute New Yorker Boutique. Our drive from the airport was like a tour, he pointed out celebrity houses and famous places in Miami. We told our driver about our plans for the next morning to see as much of Miami in the little time we had before our flights. He offered to take us down the Miami boardwalk after we checked out in the morning and pick us up with our bags in the car and take us to the airport. Such a nice gesture!
Once we had arrived at the hotel, Mimi at the front desk was so happy and welcoming. It was really nice to have such nice hospitality! She gave us the wifi code and showed us some places to eat dinner with discounts if you showed the hotel card.
The breakfast was just great! Lots of bananas, apples, bagels, and milk.
Our checkout went smoothly, and our few hours at Miami Beach were incredible. He showed us where to go and where he would pick us up. Everything ran flawlessly.
Overall, it was a great place to stay. Yes, the hotel is not a 5 star hotel, but after being without running water for weeks we were in heaven. It had a very retro diner feel. Personally I liked it, it was cheap and gave me everything I needed. Couldn’t really ask for more. Don’t forget to factor in the airport shuttle cost is $10 per person per drive!
