I did lots of research before deciding to stay near the airport. It was our first time in Miami and I wanted to stay on the beach but I did not want to deal with all night partiers during spring break. I used my AAA discount and got a great rate on this hotel and decided to go with it. The staff was friendly, the location is good, the rooms (suites) were spacious and clean. There was a full kitchen with cooking utensils, full fridge/freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher, 2 flat screens (one was in the bedroom), a dvd player, comfy bed, and a business center with access to internet, Microsoft office applications, and a printer. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Even though the hotel is by the airport it was not noisy.
