“AMAZING hotel for business”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

The staff here is amazing, very courteous and accommodating. The rooms are nice, spacious and very well maintained. The hotel is a bit far from the beach and tourist sites, so if that's what you're looking for, it's not for you, however, for people traveling on business or prefer quieter atmosphere, it's perfect. They have illy coffee/espresso in the rooms! The shower and bath...I wanted to bring the entire bathroom with me. The restaurants on property were great, albeit a little pricey, although that's to be expected. Overall, I LOVED our stay here.

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights on our way back from a trip to the Virgin Islands. I used Marriott miles so was pleased at the hotel from a value perspective. Rooms were very nice. Loved the espresso maker in the room and the TV built into the bathroom mirror. We ate at the bar area of Daniel Boulud's restaurant. The food was excellent. The overnight parking charge of $35 per night seems excessive, but maybe that's the norm for Miami. Needed a car to get to the areas that are more fun.

We stay at this hotel very often. It has a good location. However, it is not close to the beach if that is what you are looking for. There are many restaurants and shopping near by. The only reason I do not rated "Excellent" is because the pool only gets sun from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm and from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The hotel across the street blocks it the rest of the time. The hotel staff is very cordial and are always trying to help. It is expensive to valet park your vehicle approx. $38.00 a day. I have valet parked a vehicle once there and will not do it again. It is not so much because of the cost but the poor attitude of some of their attendants. Note that these are the only staff members who we avoid at all cost. There is parking if you don't mind walking two blocks.

Room Tip: There is a beautiful view if you get a room facing the bay. You can see the sunset in the morning. T...

Great hotel, too far from shops and sights. The 4 elevators are not suitable for a large hotel and too much time was spent waiting to go up or down. The staff were really friendly and helpful, particularly the guys at the entrance. Not for tourists

If you are captive at a business meeting, seminar, etc. this hotel offers good service in an attractive setting. If you are on vacation it is a terrible location! You are surrounded by high rises in a rather rundown area with a few cafe-type restaurants and low end stores. It is not convenient to the area's beautiful beaches, famous South Beach, or high end shopping of Bal Harbour, etc. The pool (on the 19th floor) is in the shade of surrounding buildings most of the day and people crowd into the one small corner that does receive sun late in the afternoon. When in Miami for pleasure stay at one of the beautiful beach locations and enjoy what the area is all about!

I have stayed here before and always find this hotel property to be excellent. It has a very positive vibe and the staff are very attentive. The property itself seems well maintained and very clean. Rooms have terrific views of Miami and the bay. This hotel is close to local attractions and a wide variety of restaurants. This part of town has been under construction for a number of years so getting around by car is a challenge. Overall a very positive experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room.

Though in an odd location this is a nice hotel with large rooms, comfy beds and very helpful and friendly staff. My only real beef is with the elevators. While not a huge hotel you could find yourself waiting for 10-15 minutes to get an elevator, where only about 50% of the time your card worked to get you to your floor. Very frustrating, and annoying and difficult when you are trying to arrive at meetings on time. They need to fix this!!
