The hotel is upscale suits the star level. Upon arrival and checking in the hotel the queen bed non smoking room was unavailable so, the front desk staff upgraded us to a king suite.
When we went up to up to our room. The room was just as big as one bed room apartment. The king size bed, the flat screen TV on it huge console/dresser combo. The couch and chair with coffee table. There is the office desk and couple of chairs. Separate closet and bathroom area with all fine amenities. The room was exceeded the expectation and the price that was bids on priceline website. Totally, unexpected. We loved our room with the balcony ( unaccessible ) probably due to safety issues.
They have a restaurant there but we didn't get to utilize it because, we were out of the hotel most of the time while we were there. The parking cost 12.50 each time you are in and out. I did a lot of research prior to this trip so, we didn't rent a car while we were there. Except the next day while we rented a car from Miami Airport and used it for a few hour and returned the same day. Taxi cost $21 plus we gave the driver a tip (too much tip for the attitudes that he has) so make sure you stack up some of $1 dollar bills because, we didn't have it so we ended up gave him $5. We were supposed to be on NCL Sky the next day after we returned the vehicle we took the taxi back to the hotel somewhat it cost more. I guess because, starting point was from MIA for the final cost was $29 with his tips.
The next day Taxi to the Port of Miami cost us about $15.
What we did while we were there?
We walked about 20 minutes from our hotel to the Bayside Market. It was really not that bad to walk at all. Nice working out.. We enjoyed spent sometime at the Bayside. More like tourist trap but I loved shopping so I won't mind.
When we finish we were walking back and taking some short cut downtown miami. It is not a good option and we didn't know this until we did. The off streets are not "SAFE" .. Don't walk there alone!!!! or evening when it is getting dark. The homeless, drug dealers, etc are hanging out. We saw some street working girl there, too!
We walked as fast as we could. We don't look at anything or stop anywhere just continued to walks.
Hope this help anyone who is planning to visit Miami or taking a cruise and staying any of the downtown hotel location.
Forgot to mention that they do have the transit you can use. But we are from the city that we don't have a pubic transit. So, go figure that we are not familiar with how to :)
