“Good Money Relation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We spent a night here in this hotel before going on a cruise. Originally, this was our second choice hotel, we wanted one closer to the port but they didn’t have vacancies; now, this second choice could well be the first one. It’s new, everything worked perfect, nice people at the front desk and best of all it has a good price to value relation.

We stayed here for 1 night before a cruise and wished we could have stayed longer! It's clean and modern with the usual Hampton Inn amenities... very beautiful hotel! It was more expensive than the others closer to the airport but the location is well worth the extra cost... AND it's right around the corner from the Metromover (free) which can take you on a quick look around town. Also great restaurants around the corner or short distance on the Metromover. There's also the Metrorail if you want to venture further.

The reception staff was very nice and very helpful with directions and recommendations for the local area.

It was a bit confusing when we first arrived as hotel check-in is actually on the 6th floor and it is only valet and concierge on first floor. The rooms were smaller than te usual but maybe expected for the area.

All in all a beautiful hotel, great location and great staff!

Room Tip: the higher floors have a great view of the city

This is by far the nicest Hampton Inn I've seen--very clean and modern. Location was fantastic too! Next to the Miami metrorail and metromover. There's a well-equipped fitness center and a nice little pool too.

Dear Haejina,

Thank you for writing your review and for letting you know you enjoyed your stay.

Now, not only we are conveniently located just a few feet away from the free MetroMover station that provides free transportation to all Downtown Miami and more, bu the MetroRail offers a new line direct to and from Miami Airport for just $2 per person each way from that same station.

We hope to see you again in the future.

At any time helpful and courteous Hotel staff (without any exception from desk & reception staff to chamber maids and breakfast staff) my special thanks are going to Isabel and the breakfast Team Sandra, Yanet and Luz which are doing a fantastic job.

I could recommend this hotel to my best friends.One thing would be interesting to know: why is a LEED certified hotel using plastic for breakfast?

Dear Frank D,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and for remembering many of our staff by name. It means a lot to us. I would like to explain that we do not use plastic plates or utensils at our breakfast. These are all made of a product called tatter-ware, which is basically a potato product that fully dissolves in the landfills in less than 90 days so they are the ultimate green way to serve our breakfast.

Again, thank you for staying with us and we look forward to a future visit.

Cordially,

Eduardo Chapoval

Ideal location, really clean and super friendly staff--including three wonderful ladies who prepare breakfast every morning--makes Hampton Inn Brickell absolute best value when staying downtown.

Location is within easy walking distance of great restaurants and a Metromover station--an elevated trolley that makes a loop of downtown.

We stayed the night before we went on our cruise and it was awesome. The hotel itself is beautifully done and well appointed with art and high end finishings. The room was spacious and the service was great. With our package we got to park the car in their garage while on our cruise. It was $5 a night but well worth it as parking at port is more expensive and hectic. Our package also included two free drinks at the bar, breakfast, and a shuttle ride to port for two. Breakfast was alright, the eggs we kind of tough and I'm sure they were powdered. But overall it was nice. The shuttle service was prompt and driver was nice. Very convenient. We did have to take a cab back to the hotel when we got off the cruise, but it was about $15 for two ppl. I am sure that was due t the fact that our driver got lost but still reasonable. The hotel is within a very short walk of shops and great restaurants. The terrace is gorgeous and the pool is awesome. Overall a wonderful stay in Miami!

Room Tip: If you are looking for a place to stay near the port of Miami choose this hotel and get their cruise...

This is probably the nicest Hampton Inn I've stayed at. Very modern and refurbished. Right in the downtown area and within walking distance to a ton of restaurants in the Brickell area. In a safe area to walk around at night.

Check-in not so smooth (I think because there were some "problem" customers they were trying to assist concurrently). Note that the main lobby is on the 6th floor, not on the ground floor/street level. Rooms were nice and spacious - much larger than typical city hotels that you would find in NYC or Chicago. The bathrooms were more of the size of a Hilton than a typical Hampton Inn. Plenty of towels, too. Coffee makers in the rooms (for coffee or tea) but there was also always self-dispense coffee, tea, and ice water in the lobby. I'm not sure if any of the rooms actaully have a good view since the building is in the middle of downtown. Overall the rooms were quiet.

There is a bar in the hotel and it seemed like most people got a free drink coupon upon check in. Also on the main lobby floor is the eating area for breakfast. While it's a typical continental free breakfast served on paper plates, the selections exceed most hotel breakfasts I've encountered. For instance, usually there are 2-3 selections of danish and muffins, there about at least 8 different kinds. Lots of toppings for the oatmeal. Whole fresh fruit. Selection of coffees and teas. Eggs, turkey sausage, hash browns.

No other restaurant on premises but there are menus at the bar and front desk if you want a local restaurant to deliver for you to the hotel.

Self-parking is kind of a pain. The lot is actually prior to the roundabout driveway in front of the hotel. Since the hotel is on a one-way street you need to go through a whole series of turns to get back. Parking is also $18 a day with in-and-out privileges. You need your room key to get in and out. The first time you pull in if you haven't checked in yet take the ticket and bring it to the front desk. They will take the ticket from you at check-in (and charge you $18 to your room). The good thing in that hte garage is well lit and we never had an issue getting a parking space that was not close to the hotel elevators.

Had a pretty large outdoor pool area and cabanas but we did not try it out but you can see it right behind the bar. Also had a gym on premise but again did not check it out.

There is a Metro stop about a half a block away.

I would definitely stay at this Hampton Inn again

Dear Jerseyshoredeb,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and for selecting our hotel for this visit to Miami. Our hotel is not refurbished as we are brand new as the building was built from the ground up and we opened just 15 month ago.

Please keep us in mind for your next visit to Miami.
