We stayed at the B2 Downtown Miami during the Thanksgiving week. The location of the hotel was superb with stunning views.
The room was very, very small. Our landline phone was totally dead. We informed the front desk but nothing got resolved during our stay, therefore we had to go down to the front desk from the 10th Floor every time we needed something. The room was also lacking washcloths the first night but we got some after complaining to the front desk (by going downstairs due to no phone situation).
I read on the hotel room book that there's a vending machine on my floor. I looked for it and did not find it. I looked on another floor and did not find it either. I walked down to the front desk (no phone in room) and the lady told me that there's no vending machine on the entire hotel. I mentioned that the hotel book said so which she found very strange. I went up and down again to show her what I was talking about. She said she would talk to the manager about that.
We bought some water at the local pharmacy and used the glasses in our room the first night. These glasses were never replaced and were left exactly were we left them every night. The ice bucket with melted ice was never replaced either.
The breakfast buffet was good although a little short. I asked for a mimosa and my server had no idea what I was talking about. I got it at the end after he spoke to the bartender.
I do have to say that the one excellent thing we found was the wonderful service from a guy called Stanley (or Stan) at the front desk while we checked it. He was absolutely great!
Overall, I don't think we will be back to this hotel again.
