“B2 Hotel review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

The B2, located in a great spot across the street from Bayside, is a fun boutique hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and upgrade our accommodations to a corner room with fantastic views! The room was recently renovated and the decor was modern and sleek.

We had a fantastic experience except for leaving upon checkout. The 2 elevators are very small so with everyone checking out at 11 the wait for an elevator was extremely long. After 20 minutes we had to walk 12 flights to the lobby with our luggage.

Room Tip: Avoid the checkout rush!

Good morning Mkrami:

And thank you very much for your comments with regards to our location and facilities. The team at b2 Miami really enjoyed taking care of you, and hearing back from you that they exceeded your expectations. I am glad you enjoyed the upgrade to one of our Stunning rooms with panoramic views of both the city and the bay.

I am in the process of evaluating new procedures to alleviate the lifts during busy periods and ensure that process doesn't present any inconvenience to future guests.

I look forward to welcoming you back to Miami soon, where you should b2!

Centrally placed for all things downtown, and easy to get transport to other places like Miami Beach, Coral Gables, and a Hertz place which is so close tothe freeway, and highway 1 going south. Got a top floor room with great view, even though was ínternal´when booked. Also they can provide a tablet for free internet use.
Only bad point was lifts are very slow.

The location is perfect for touring but the air conditioning was just too noisy. It kept me awake for the whole time. Do not stay in Room 1616. We told reception and they said they were going to send a technician, but it was not fixed. We told them twice. They also did not clean the room - they made the bed but did not vacuum the floor until we complained.

Room Tip: Do not stay in room 1616 - air conditioning is noisy

Good morning 330epping.

Thank you very much for your recent review. I have made a note to place 1616 out of order until the air conditioning unit has been fully serviced.

I very much appreciate the feedback you have offered, and want you to know I will be reviewing it with the team.

It would be an honor if when you pass by Miami you would give the property and the team an opportunity to hit it out of the park for you, as we have done for so many of our guests. You can contact me directly when you do.

Stayed for one night on December 8th before a cruise. The lobby was impressive. We arrived way before their official 4pm check-in and they were gracious enough to let us check-in anyway. As everybody else states, the bathroom was microscopic but to me it was not a very big deal. The bed was huge with just the right firmness. The bedding and pillows were some of the best I've ever experienced! Nice TV and good WiFi. Large safe box big enough to fit most laptops. The aircon was noisy and clunky but effective. Great location across from Bayside and CVS and a quick $8-$10 taxi ride to the Port of Miami. The negatives: the walls are a bit thin and sometimes I could clearly hear the neighbors tv and I saw a silverfish on the bed. I would stay there again for the right price.

B2 is a great property in Downtown Miami at a 3 minute walking distance from Bayside beach. Located in the business district, it is surrounded by high rises and corporate offices. Rooms are spacious, clean and excellent. Luckily, we got a sea-facing room and this was perfect for the vacation. The hotel does not offer complimentary breakfast, which is a negative point but houses Biscayne Tavern, one of the best gastropubs in Miami which offers excellent food. Accessibility to south beach is easy from the hotel.

We stayed in the King Corner Room during our last stay at B2. We loved the extra space - really nice large bathroom and LOTS of room to move around. The views were amazing. The staff was very nice and the management cares that you are having a good experience. My only complaint was that the elevators can get crowded when people are checking out in the morning. Luckily, we were on the 10th floor and didn't mind the stairs. And, check out was very easy - we were able to do it right from the room and didn't even need to stop at the from desk. We used valet for our car and they were very nice as well.

Room Tip: Go for the King Corner room and not just the King. The extra space is GREAT!

Good morning Kathy A:

And thank you for youre review. The team and management at the b2 really dedicate themselves to making sure all our guests are well taking care of. I see, you had the chance to stay in one of our B Enhanced suites. They are truly a great combination of everything b2 offers, with awesome views of the bay, spacious bathrooms, pull out sofa beds and mini refridgerators.

I hope to see you in person next time you come by. Do ask for me, and until then, b well!
