I stayed at this hotel during a business trip and I was presently surprised. It does attempt to brand itself as a boutique hotel but it does scream Hilton from the moment you check- in. Not necessarily a bad thing.
The layout of the hotel is a little confusing initially but certainly not a deal breaker. The lobby is on the 25th floor and the rooms are on the floors below. Residences are on the floors above.
Upon arrival, I was greated warmly and the staff was helpful throughout my stay. They even made copies of my presentation for me at the front desk after the business center was closed. Every interaction was extremely pleasant from housekeeping to bar to room service. They were friendly and seemed pleased that I stayed at the property. Certainly not a feeling that you get everywhere.
The rooms are modern and equipped as expected with a flat screen TV, minibar, desk, etc. I stayed in a room on the 22nd floor that was spacious and had a great view of the bridge/lake. The bed and bedding was comfortable, the room was clean and the floor as a whole very quiet. It was one of the more comfortable hotels that I have slept in recently. I also felt that for the amenities provided, the price point was certain in line. Good value.
I chose to dine in the hotel and did not venture around the area but there appeared to be ample places to eat within walking distance of the property. On-site dining is fine as well with balcony seating as a bonus.
I travel to Miami on business every couple of months and will certainly stay at this property again.
