“squeezed every penny”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Stayed for 2 nights. it was a choice between this hotel and the Biltmore. Chose the Ritz Carlton and were very disappointed. The lobby is gorgeous but the room was nothing special. Not luxurious at all but nice bathroom. They charge for everything including small bottles of water in the bedroom for $7. They charged $4.50 for bringing our drinks to us by the pool, then there was the tax and tip on top so 2 drinks poolside $34. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from restaurants and shops but it feels like its in the middle of nowhere. Staff generally were very good except the receptionist who made us feel like we were an inconvenience. Really sorry we chose to stay here and would never stay again. You have lots of choice in Miami with lots of other hotels much better and much less expensive.

My wife and I were invited to a wedding at the Ritz-Carlton in Coconut Grove, Florida so we decided to stay at that hotel for the occasion. The wedding was on Saturday night, but we stayed for three nights -- Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The hotel was expensive (even with the "special" wedding rate), but being a Ritz-Carlton, that was to be expected. Although the hotel is very nice (particularly the public areas) it is not special enough to warrant the rates. The rooms are average size and nicely furnished, but no larger or nicer than the rooms at many hotels at much lower rates. Because it is a Ritz-Carlton, they think that they can charge you at every turn. For example, a small can of juice from the mini-bar was $8.00; parking is $33.00 per night (and there are basically no other places to park in the area); the charge for using the computers in the hotel's business center is $.50 cents a minute, so if you do about an hour's worth of work, the cost would be $30.00; having a tuxedo pressed (not cleaned) is $22.50. And the list goes on and on. So, the moral of the story is that you can probably get almost as much for much less.

One more thing. When reserving the room, I requested a "quiet" room not near an elevator or vending machine. That request was honored; however, on Saturday morning we were woken at 8:00 AM by the loudest construction noise I have ever heard. They were constructing a new building directly outside of our hotel window. Of course, we were not told about this when checking in. When we complained, their answer was that the construction was only Monday through Saturday and that there was no construction on Sunday!!!

Room Tip: If booking a room in the near future, make sure that you request a room away from the outside constr...

Hotel is beautiful and the room was very nice. There is a major construction project on one side of the hotel that starts with the jackhammers and heavy equipment at around 7 am. You can't open the window it is so loud. You can't really even just sit in your room during the day because of the noise. It looks like a large scale project that will go on for some time, so make sure your room is situated on the poolside, or south side of the building. The staff for the most part were very good as expected. They did lose a parcel for me and I had to talk to a few people, most of whom seemed kind of helpless to fix the problem. One of the phones in the room didn't work. Still a nice stay but for cost and expectations, I was a bit disappointed.

Stayed here for a couple of evenings for a conference and was very impressed. The best part is the friendly yet not pushy staff. They all have a smile and greet you at every turn. The hotel's amenities area fabulous and the accommodations are very good. If you are in the Coconut Grove area, this is a great place to stay!

We love to stay at Ritz Carlton's and have done so for many years. We have stayed in Ritz Carltons in "Battery Park, Central park, Miami, Jamaica, Boston, Westchester" Coconut Grove takes the cake! The staff is unbelievable. Alex at the front desk sets the tone, his professionalism and charisma make you feel at home. Frantz at the pool is one of the nicest and hardworking people we have ever met. He keeps the pool area running smooth and accomodates all of his guests needs. Hasan at the bar is a wealth of Miami knowledge and prepares great drinks. The staff at Biscaya was amazing!! Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove.... One of our best experiences ever!! Cant wait to go back!!
