“Very nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

The facility was excellent. Very clean and new. The pool was closed that week for repairs so we couldn't swim there. The service overall was good especially the valet. Depending on who you asked at the desk the service was good or poor. When I asked where to dispose of garbage I got a "I don't know, it's somewhere on your floor." I guess it would be too much to ask someone who works there to look at a floor plan. On a different occasion I asked where I can through garbage while I was in the lobby, both attendants looked at me like that was an odd question and advised me to go to the floor I reside and throw it down the chute. They definitely weren't going to get their hands dirty. Other than having receptionist that aren't knowledgeable and lazy, the facility is really nice. Beware the $20/day parking charge. You can park on the street at your own risk. There always seemed to be parking available. Lastly, if you want to use the fitness center treadmill, there is only one and an elliptical so make sure you're first or you'll have to wait.

I stayed in the 2nd tower and my "apartment" was VERY clean and stylish in a minimalist way. I literally had everything I needed including quiet surroundings. If you are a budget traveler though, beware of the $150 deposit. Most places simply hold the funds and release it if there are no additional charges. Habitat Residence actually charges your account and credits it back to you a few days later. If you can, put the deposit on a credit card you don't frequently use. Also, this hotel is quite far from South Beach so if you do not plan on renting a car, please allow for an hour or more to make it to the "strip" via public transportation.

The staff was not "overly" accommodating but I found this refreshing. When I had a concern, it was addressed in a very timely fashion. Overall, this place is perfect for those staying in Miami for a while or like me, prefer to stay in places that are off the beaten path. Will definitely stay here again in the future!

Beautiful condo I absolutely loved it. The view from our room was very nice and Brickell was a quiet area. The pictures online of tower 2 were exactly what the room looked like in person which was great! Theres a really good pizza place close by called Pieducks too. If they had housekeeping it would be a perfect.

Hidden jewel!!!!! Rooms are of high standard. Upkeep is excellent. Staff is friendly. A walk away from anything you would need to accommodate your stay. Parking if not valet could be better but the charge for valet will not break the bank.
