I visited my friend in USA and together we took 1 week long vacation in Miami. It was our first visit to Miami and hope we will return again, had lots of fun and sunshine :)
The hotel and rooms are modern, spacious, bright and clean with comfy beds, all staff very friendly and helpful. The reception is on the 6th floor and there is also bar, breakfast area, pool area outside which we used twice for evening swimming (loved the view of skyscrapers and planes flying over your head while lying in the pool).
Buffet style breakfast with a great variety is included (take-away hot chocolate yummmie).
Receptionists will be happy to give you a little map and instructions; but around the corner to the right from the hotel is an area with restaurants and bars (check out Blue Martini), and to the left is a Metro Mover stop which is free (don`t mix it with the other metro which is not) and this will take you to the Bayside Market (with more restaurants, bars, shops and evening entertainment).
We used Metro Movers (need to switch ones) and bus to get to the South Beach every day; it was easy, comfy enough and fun chatting to locals or other vacationers on the way-I highly recommend this experience :) plus we saved some cash which we used on other stuff instead ;)
