We booked this hotel on Hotwire and got an amazing deal! it's right on the water, in downtown Miami, close to everything exciting. However, be aware that the following features are NOT INCLUDED in the nightly rate, which are important if you are traveling with kids: breakfast, kids cable channels, a fridge, and a microwave. Parking is mandatory valet, which is $36 per night. Bellhop service is pretty much mandatory, you can't take your own bags up or down from your room. And DO NOT leave valuables in your car...the valet service staff did not seem trustworthy. Overall, the type of place for singles and couples without kids. Beautiful, inside and out.
