There are so many good things i can say about this hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly to say the least and made our stay extremely enjoyable. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable (was much better than i expected). The complimentary breakfast was always great and there was much variety as compared to a normal continental breakfast. The location of this hotel was better than we had expected. We mainly wanted to shop and do a little touristy things such as the zoo which was close by and dadeland mall within walking distance was great. There are many restaurants close by that you could walk to but the hotel shuttle was a life saver. Since many shopping areas were nearby it really cut down on the money you would spend in taxi if you didn't want to rent a car. The shuttle was always available and was very convenient and the drivers knew South Miami very well and were able to direct us in different places to go! I would advise anyone going to the dadeland area to stay at this hotel. It really made our stay that much more enjoyable at an extremely affordable rate!
