B2 Hotel in downtown Miami recently changed its name to Yve. In fact, it was exactly on my arrival date on December 6, 2014. The hotel façade looks extremely nice. It seemed to have been recently painted and renovated. Some of the personnel were getting on the job training when I was ready to check in. However, it did not bother me at all since the person that took care of me was really helpful and very accommodating with my early check in.
The lobby is not really spacious as other hotels in the area, but it was nice, clean and cozy. Space seems to be a problem with this hotel though. Starting with the elevators; there are only two of them, and it only fits a few people. I might be mistaken, but there seems to be no service elevator at all. It was a bit annoying having to wait until the hotel personnel was done using it. Some guests decided to go up the steps to their respective floors.
Although the room was nice, the theme with the reduced space continued. My room looked more like a closet than anything else. The bathroom was extremely tiny, and the view from the room was nonexistent. The walls are very thin. I could hear what was going on the room next door to mine.
The hotel is located in the heart of the vibrant section of downtown Miami. It is within walking distance to Bayside, the metro mover and the American Airlines Arena. There are plenty of parking spaces around the hotel at very affordable prices. In addition to having a Walgreens next door, there is a plethora of places to eat.
Also, the hotel offers free Wi-Fi which is also a plus. There are different ways of checking out as well. The pros and cons seem to balance out at the end.
For the price is not a bad option to consider.
