While it doesn't have the "hip" factor that some other Miami hotels have, the Intercontinental does have decent sized rooms and a downtown Miami location that can't be beat. Stayed there for a Miami Heat basketball game and it was an easy walk to and from the stadium. The Ultra music festival is just across the street. The restaurant/bar in the lobby is very large and so getting a seat is usually easy and the food was great. Also the Starbucks just off the lobby was handy. The charge for using the gym was a bit annoying.
