4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2010

We rented the penthouse for a week at a price that was a fraction of what you would pay for in a comparable luxury hotel. The location was close to the downtown and we had easy access to highways to travel North to the airport and malls or South to South Beach. The only down side was you refresh your own accomodations. You wash your clothes in the included washer and dryer... do your own dishes or buy plastic disposible things at one of the two Publix grocery stores located within walking distance. The restaurants were also very close along with first class bubs. A short drive and you were in South Beach where the upscale shops and trendy bistros lined the walk way.

There was plenty of room in the penthouse...so much so that we didnt even need one of the bedrooms. The furnished plates and glasses we nice along with the full sized refrigerator and dishwasher. It was like being at home away from home. We would make trips to the grocery store to load up on breakfast items and had planned a cook out on the roof top grill overlooking down town but who wanted to cook? We could have though if we wanted to. There may have been a charge to use the grill and you wanted to make sure you had it reserved from other guest in the facility. It would have been a great place to invite friends back to for a drink on the outside deck. Everything looked nice. Free assigned off street parking for our vehicle made it nice too. There was a guard outside most of the time... dont know why but it was nice to know one was there watching everything. There was a StarBucs nearby if you were too lazy to buy some for the coffee maker that was provided. Several other appliances were also include. Sufficient towels and other linen were stocked in the linen closet. I would through a load in every day to make sure we had fresh towels throughout our stay.

I would do it again in a heart beat. But we have family living in the Miami area now... so renting would just be an insult to them. But I highly recommend you try this facility out instead of spending three times that amount at a hign end hotel and the only difference is the daily refresh which we could have paid extra for. But I am all about saving the Benjamins. And we saved a GRIP on this vacation.
