“Very good hotel but not excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

We arrived at the Bricknell after driving from Tallahassee, Florida. My twin sister and I have been travelling since we retired in February. When we arrived the valet was very curt and the front desk was not much better. The bellboy was much friendlier and took our bags up to the room. The next day the front desk person was the same as on our arrival. He was courteous and very helpful. The rest of our stay was fun but not exceptional. The soccer World Series was on during our stay and there was no special effort except for 1 free drink. They could have had free appetizers that represented Columbia and Brazil. OveralI, I would recommend this hotel.

Overall, this is a fairly standard Aloft product in an interesting location. If you have to be in Miami and you are SPG, this is a good alternative to the $$$$ properties off Collins. The neighborhood is in transition and looks to be a great place to be (maybe a year from now). You can walk to decent restaurants and bars, however, you may meet some local "characters" along the way - and try not to get run over (everyone drives and talks on the phone - even the cops).

I received a room "upgrade" to a corner, but the room only had one side of windows, so it wasn't a view enhancement. The room was also slightly larger than normal which means the p-tac unit was working extra hard. Half my room was cool, the other half slightly warm.

The rooms & hotel are very nice! Staff was friendly & it is only walking distance to some very nice restaurants and bars. Everything is we'll up kept if you look at the pictures it's very modern. It has a walk in glass shower, the bathroom door is a slide door and everything is very open. The breakfast is not bad either.

But make sure you use credit card the person in front of me tried to pay cash at check out for their room and they did not have change.

I found this hotel since I go to Miami on business often but my hotel allowance is low. the Aloft Brickell is great value since it is very comforatable and very centrally located. The staff is also extremely nice and helpful and the room is spacious and clean. The bar in the lobby does get pretty noisy but it is Miami! I certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to stay in the Brickell area.

Excellent stay at Aloft Brickell. From check-in to check-out, staff was friendly and helpful. One block from the Metro-mover, a FREE train that runs around downtown Miami about 60 feet above street level. Room was very nice and clean with a large glass shower and Bliss soap... The King-size bed was SOOOOOOO comfortable (I wanted to get the brand but forgot), we slept 'til 8:30 wich is unusual for us. Valet parking is $22 per 24 hours and you can come and go as often as you like. Valet guys are nice too and gave us directions to nearby beaches. The manager gave us coupons for a couple of drinks and suggested restaurants and things to do around the hotel. We would gladly return to the Aloft Brickell and recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay, close to downtown Miami without breaking the bank. The halls even smell good :)

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are nice.

Stayed at the aloft Miami last week. It is a retrofitted apartment building so the rooms are larger than other newly built aloft hotels I have stayed in. Also very nice that the rooms have balconies so you can enjoy the beautiful weather and sunsets in Miami. I had business downtown and also in the design district and the hotel was very convenient to both locations, as well as the Perez Art Museum. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely return.
