Located next to Baptist Hospital, about one mile from Dadeland Mall (major shopping) and 2-3 miles from the University of Miami campus. About 12 miles to downtown.
We got s good deal via Hotels.com. $100, plus tax, vs the $120 quoted on the phone. It was the cheapest room, one king bed. The lobby/restaurant is separate from the two 4-story buildings where the rooms are. There is an open court with tropical plantings that each room doorway. faces. Very pleasant looking.
The room is very large. The king bed took up only about 40-45% of it, there was a two seater couch facing the TV, with an ottoman/coffee table the width of the sofa. There is a desk and a small round table with two chairs. The bathroom is townhouse Master Bedroom size, very generous. Loved the room.
Caveats: no wifi or refrigerator, although the Hotels.com printout indicated that there was wifi.. One of the two elevators didn't work. The ice machine was broken on the 2nd & 3rd floors. Couldn't get the TV to get out of the default pay TV screen.. After the second call, a security person showed up and explained that you had to point the remote directly at the box on the 0tp of the set, which was set high in an armoire to begin with. Lousy selection of channels. Only one movie channel -- HBO -- and no History, Learning, Discovery type channels. Lots of shopping channels.
The complimentary breakfast, which starts at 7 am, was impressively laid out. We arrived at 8:45 and just about everything was cold. xxcept for the eggs, which were warm, it seems that everything else had been there for almost two hours. It looked better than what it was, which was about the same as the average motel breakfast, except there was no waffle maker. Cold pancakes, instead.
They put a $50 daily charge on the credit card to cover incidentals. I had to call them 8 days later to get the refund.
Fix up these problems and this is a place you would always want to stay in.
