This hotel is a converted condo building and most rooms are split into a suite and a small separate room. If you're traveling alone you are most likely to receive one of these and let me tell you that the size of the room is smaller than a Manhattan hotel room.
I have stayed at most luxury hotels in the miami/ft. lauderdale area and have never been in such a small room. There's no space to put your suitcase!
Besides the size, the room was very clean and the bath was comfortable. The room had a 40" LCD TV and complimentary wireless internet (the speed of the connection was very slow).
The bed was vey good but even on a monday night on the 12th floor you could clearly hear the loud bass & drums from the nightclub that is next to the hotel, something that may prevent some people from sleeping.
There is a single ice machine located on the 9th floor, something unheard of in any hotel that pretends to be a 4 star.
The restaurant is very small and pricey but has an excellent view of the bay.
The worst part of the hotel is the $23/day charged for valet parking, this was abusive.`
Overall the hotel was not bad, but there are plenty of better choices in Miami for the same value.
