We stayed at this Hotel for 4 nights before a cruise in early April. A hot breakfast is included in the price and tea and coffee as well as citrus water and fresh fruit is available at all times. The Hotel is a half block from Metro Mover which will take you down to Bayside Market at no cost. At Bayside there are restaurant's such as Bubba Gump's, Hard Rock Cafe and I think Hooters, although the shopping isn't great. Takes about 15 minutes to get down there, a little longer coming back. Ross Dress for Less is right across from Bayside Station with Marshall's a block away, also a CVS and numerous Banks. Back at Brickell there is a Publix Super Market a block from the Metro Station and I think there is a Walgreens directly behind it although we never went there. You can catch the free Trolley Bus at Brickell Station which will take you up to Bayside also. If hungary, there is an excellent Chicken Restaurant and Takeout a half block from hotel which is very reasonably priced. I think it was under $20 for the Cab from the Airport. I will most defiantly stay here again if I am back in Miami.
