Valet was $25 a night which I thought was a bit steep - there are some lots and metered parking spaces around. I understand it's walking distance from Coconut Grove but also from not-so-pretty areas of Miami. The valet staff was very courteous and helpful though. The desk staff provided average service. They were nice enough to upgrade our room from city view to bay view.
We had a standard one queen bed room. A lot of people might think it's small but to me it was fine. Upon entering, there was an obviously used hand towel on top of the fridge cabinet with hair (!). Gross. We decided to put it on the floor and household picked it up the next day. There was a dark stain on the carpet too which was a shame being the room was otherwise clean, including the bathroom. The fixtures were good, nothing cracked or loose. The location is good for people visiting Miami itself. It is a 20 minute-ish drive to South Beach. For 4th of July, it was very nice to see fireworks from our room, they had it right on the bay. The pool was amazing, it's on the 8th floor and you can see the Bay and Miami while you lounge about.
