Stayed 4 nights with my wife and our 2-year old daughter.
First and foremost, the staff were very pleasant, gracious, and accommodating. I asked one of the housekeepers for an extra bottle of shampoo, and when she saw that I was staying there with my daughter, she promtly loaded me up with shampoos, soaps, lotions, and even a few extra towels. Very nice!
The parking situation is a bit laughable at times; just be aware that you're pretty much stuck with the valet parking prices, and thanks to the VERY limited availability, you'll be leaving your car in a jumbled mess, near the hotel's entrance if you return late in the evening. The parking attendants were very good about explaining the situation, though. I understand the area, and the fact that their hands were tied. Hey, what can ya do? They clear the cars as soon as space became available, so no complaints.
The hotel itself was fine. Clean and spacious common areas, Small and efficient excercise room and pool.
The property is situated across the street from a Publix grocery store, which was big, clean, and seemed to cater to the residents of the surrounding high-rise condos.
A tip: SKIP THE HOTEL BREAKFAST.
The Publix offers a variety of fresh pastries, a sit-down cafe', deli, and even a little booth which sells some great -tasting (and REALLY CHEAP) Cuban coffee.
The hotel is about a block away from SW 88th St. which offers a variety of dining and shopping options, including the HUGE MALL.
The rooms were clean and well appointed. The bathroom was spacious, with enough vanity/counter space to accommodate my wife's seemingly endless amount of cosmetics.
Though we did not have much of a view from our room, aside from the Publix parking lot, we were able to focus more on what was happening inside the room. Which we truly enjoyed.
Let's get something straight:
This is NOT a resort. What you're paying for is the convenient location. The pool is small, as is the exercise room, which in my opion, are just fine.
If you're looking for a clean, conveniently located, and spacious place to use as a base while you explore Miami, you can't go wrong here.
It's not the Ritz, but the staff, clean spaces, and location made our stay very enjoyable. Kudos!!
