We travelled a few days early for a scheduled conference. This is a business travelers dream - great space, nicely appointed with desk and lamps, great storage and we had a lovely view of the bay. Bathroom is spacious - a strange location for shower towels, however. The housekeeping staff do an exemplary job. The Illy coffee machines make a great cup. The fitness center is outstanding - love the miami music and it playing in the center - a nice change from the same workout music on my iPod. Although Daniel restaurant there - we didn't eat there. Location of the hotel is great for downtown Miami. The only "negative" things about the hotel - room service menu and hotel bar menu are a bit fried and outdated and boring. I preferred the options at the hotel across the street. The other thing is the spa is a contracted spa, so you cannot make an immediate reservation, they have to call the contractors and see if they can come in --- so it lacks a bit of ambiance, even though it has a great space. The Hotel Staff are amazing! We would stay again.
