My father and I came down to Miami for a cruise. We stayed at the hotel just one night. I picked this hotel because it was close to the Port of Miami and the transit line. Also the Bayside Market is directly across the street. There are some good restaurants and shops there. It's also located a couple of blocks from the American Airlines arena.
The negative side to the hotel was that they only have three elevators. One of the elevators was out of order and the other two had issues with the doors closing from time to time. While we were there, we had to wait a good amount of time for one of the elevators to come to our floor. This may be fine when the hotel is not too busy.
The continental breakfast was okay. All the fruit, pastries, and cereal were free but if you wanted anything from the hot side or juice, there is a charge. The only free beverages are water and coffee.
I would say that I was disappointed some with this hotel. I've stayed at many Holiday Inns and this has to be one of the lowest grade I've stayed in. I can't say if I would stay there again or recommend it to others.
