My stay was overnight on 11/20/12. The hotel is beautiful, safe and very clean. You need your room key to operate the elevator (no pile of fast food flyers under your door). The restaurant is ok. I didn't use the pool but it's seems nice; although it's right on the street level & privacy is very limited. The staff are friendly & accommodating (within their means). I needed transportation to the Port of Miami & was recommended to use J I Transportation. The owner Victorino was on time & got me to the Port in no time. My return trip was also pleasant. I originally arranged for pickup with Victorino for 9am. However, the ship I was on had everyone off starting around 7:30am. So I took a chance & called Victorino at 6:45am; he answered!?! He was at the pickup area within no time (hardly any wait time)! Awesome & impressed me tremedously! This hotel & transportation should be considered for a Cruise stay! Contact the hotel for their Cruise & Stay packages...definitely worth a try. I normally submit pictures but honestly...the pictures they show 'professionally' are exactly what you'll see!
