This hotel seems like it's trying to be a "boutique" Hampton Inn - it was unlike any other Hampton Inn I've stayed in. The decor is slick and "design" so it looks nice, but it felt kind of cold to me. This was also partly due to the front desk staff. They were polite and capable, but more cordial rather than friendly, which is what I usually experience at a Hampton Inn. The room was nice but he bed was too hard. As for location, it's right Downtown but if you're looking for a place to go to dinner there seem to be only chain restaurants nearby. I had to drive to get to local "real Miami" places. Overall I liked it but I wish it had had a warmer feel to it.
