This hotel in the CBD area so not very good for beach or shopping. However the rooms are large,clean and very comfortable, particularly the bed. Excellent bathroom and typically wonderful American shower - lots of power! No real views from any of the bedrooms, however Bricknel Bay has a great circular walk just a few blocks from the hotel. Good if you have a bot of jet lag and want to blow away the cobwebs. Very handy for the port of Miami if you are picking up a cruise liner - less than five minutes in a taxi. Try to get a package with breakfast included if you can otherwise go out to have it! Staff really helpful.
