“This hotel is in a great location and a good value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We needed a hotel with easy access to cruise port. It was 5 min. from port and across the street from scenic bay and restaurants. But, allow plenty of time to check out, since the two elevators get busy at that time and are very slow.

We happened to make this reservation at the last minute. We had a business meeting in Coral Gables the next day which was not too far. The staff was great and very helpful. Everything was so clean & the decor was very up to date. The rates were also reasonable for the location & accommodations. The general manager was also very interested in knowing how are stay was. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Miami. It was right across the street from Bay Front (close to the port where the cruise ships leave) I would definitely return to this hotel.

I was there for a business trip and I made the reservation at the last minute.
From the valet to the GM

Stanley checked us in and he went out of his way to tell us about all the property.

The General manager Sig asked us about our stay. He was super friendly and interested in our stay.

We will come back.

If you are going on a cruise and have to stay in Miami, this is the place for you. The location is within 5 minutes of the port. It is right across the street from Bayside Market..a great place to eat, shop and catch a cruise around the harbour. The hotel is also located a block from the hop-on, hop-off bus which you can catch to see the City of Miami and also hop on to go to South Beach.
The staff at this hotel are wonderful. They are helpful and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. In fact I would say they are outstanding. The rooms are very clean and the beds are absolutely wonderful! The only down side are the 2 elevators. If you are checking out just go down a little early, as you may be waiting for one for quite a while. I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a larger bathroom. We had one the first night was stayed there, but the second t...

We had an overnight layover in Miami and decided to go to a Miami Heat game while we were there. The hotel was easy to reach using public transportation (and I was pleasantly surprised how helpful the Miami residents were in directing us to right trains when we made our transfer). It was also located next to the Arena, which was perfect for the game. We had a corner unit with a nice view of the city. The rooms were small, and if I were spending more time there, it could feel cramped, but for our purpose it was great. The bed was extremely comfortable as well. I did experience the long elevator wait that others have mentioned, but luckily we were only on the 4th floor and so the stairs were an ok alternative. The other great surprise of the hotel, was the bar/restaurant in the lobby. My husband and I planned to have a quick drink there before finding dinner, but ended up having several very good cocktails, happy hour appetizers and dinner. All were excellent. Great service in both hotel and restaurant.

Good morning Angela B

And thank you for an awesome review. First, please note that b2 has different room types and if you ever return for a longer stay, you may select the captivating, stunning or b enhanced room categories.

I have to agree with you that our signature restaurant the Biscayne Tavern is indeed a great place to dine in. The variety of craft beers in conjunction with the upgraded approach to American comfort food, is definitely a great combination. I am glad you enjoyed it so much to turn it into a full dinner experience.

I hope you'll be back soon.

B2, former Continental ... just did a makeup, terrible service, Check in to our rooms were just released almost 05:00 pm, employees, these poor things they could do nothing for the poor structure of this "hostel" very small rooms and bathrooms reminiscent of ship cabin (tiny) climb down the elevator is a sacrifice! two lifts with little capacity to meet guests and crew cleaning together. park the car in addition to expensive U $ 30.00 takes 30 minutes for the valet to bring, do not risk having breakfast or any meal at Biscayne Tavern! poor quality and very expensive, at bedtime ... we work, hears all the neighbor! not replenish toiletries, you must complain ... do not leave anything in the room ... stolen in one of the rooms a wireless headphone sony, (new in box) cost $ 120.00. Definitely the worst hotel experience we had in the USA.

Room Tip: Choose a room in another hotel ... believe will be much better!

It is unfortunate that your review was with such a low score. It is not what we normally see, and what other guests have experienced. I noticed your comments regarding the food at Biscayne Tavern and our breakast, and was particularly surprised since we do not offer any fried food on our buffet. It is made up of the true american breakfast with scrambled eggs, potatoes, options of pancakes or french toast, 3 different types of meat, freshly cut fruits, yogurts, cereals, juice and coffee. And it is priced very competitively within the area.

You are welcome to return to b2 so we can hopefully meet your expectations.

Until then, B well!

Location is perfect, close to bayside, close to transportation, etc...
Nice rooms, perfect bed, beautiful hotel.
But one minus point, only 2 elevators on a Saturday morning is terrible.
All the guests are cruisers and leaving on Saturday to the port. It takes about 20 minutes to get down ....
