“It's all about Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is smack dab in Miami, on the water. The rooms are a decent size, but the bathroom is very large (perhaps unnecessarily so). Cleanliness is definitely not in question and the hotel is very modern. The restaurant Toro Toro, was just okay, but we didn't order steak and it's an upscale steakhouse. The major downside to the InterContinental, Miami is the nickel and diming. The Internet has 2 plans which are unrealistically expensive. Also the gym is not free either, it was $15.00 per day. So all in all, it's a nice, clean hotel with location, but also inconveniences.

Dear Colby S,

Thank you for your review and the great comments about our guestrooms and cleanliness, but we are disappointed to know that your overall stay did not meet your expectations. At the moment, we do charge a fee for access to the Internet and fitness facilities, but we are continually re-evaluating our policies to better the overall guest experience. Please know that we will share your comments with our staff. We are also disappointed that Toro Toro was not up to your liking. The menu is diverse and offers an ample selection of small plates, unlike a traditional steakhouse. We hope that you will give us another opportunity to provide you with a seamless stay on your next trip to Miami.

I had the great pleasure of returning to a beautiful city and staying at a wonderful hotel! The Miami Intercontinental Hotel has been my hotel of choice for the last year. I have stayed in numerous high end hotels in Miami and around the world and there is just a certain thing about The Intercontinental that makes me come back. The Staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the city and main attractions. Food is great the bar has a plethora of people from around the world its a diversified travel experience when I go to the Intercontinental. I have become familiar with the management they are always treating me with great care. One of my favorite amenities and lets not forget some people take this for granted, is the bed sheets. I have stayed in far to many high end hotels boasting that they have the best sheets or linens. This is false. I believe for the price and view location and overall experience The Intercontineal is ideal!. I would recommend to anyone!

Room Tip: East side of the building is the best view!!!!

It's the little details that make the difference and we are always on hand to provide guests with whatever they may need- no request is too grand or complex.

Thank you for the recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you back to your home away from home soon.

We loved our one week stay at the Intercontinental Miami. I traveled with my boyfriend and we only have compliments about it.
We were surprised with a beautiful room, clean and cozy. The view of the Bay is amazing! You can appreciate the city from your room!
The service exceeded our expectations in all aspects. We were impressed with the good service and friendliness of the staff. We wanted to say a special thanks to Rose, our room attendant, who maintained our room always nice and clean. Killy and the staff from the Club were also great, the breakfast and happy hour were wonderful. The bellman Henroy with his contagious smile and happiness daily. And we cannot forget the great service from Giovani and the Valet team.
The lobby has a Starbucks Coffee which we love!
The location is also great. You can go walking to Bayside Marketplace, American Airlines Arena and other places in Downtown Miami. South Beach is just 10 minute car-ride.
We strongly recommend and will definitely be back to his hotel on our next visit to Miami.

We picked this hotel to be close to our cruise departure and were very pleased with the hotel. The location is great with good restaurants within a mile. The hotel is beautiful and the service fantastic. The pool is beautiful and relaxing. The spa treatment was of good quality. I'd stay there again even if I wasn't cruising.

Room Tip: As for a room with a view of the water, it is worth it.

Dear VrmtTraveler,

Thank you for the ecstatic review. We are so glad that you chose us for your pre-cruise stay. It truly is the best hotel as it is located on Biscayne Bay in close proximity to the Port of Miami. In our opinion, a one-night stay at our hotel is the best way to kick off or wind down any vacation. We are also glad that you had the opportunity to lounge by our pool and visit mySpa as they are both equally relaxing and lush. We look forward to welcoming you for another great trip soon.

I stayed here on a business trip 4/22/13 - 4/25/13 at a rate of $335 a night. My main complaint is that this price, over $1200 with taxes, did not include $36 a day for parking and $18 a day for internet access. It also did not include access to the fitness center, not sure of the cost. There is an automated mini-bar with outrageous prices, $4 for a 12oz can of coke for instance.

However, the hotel is located right on the water with great views. Walking distance to downtown, shopping, food, and the Arena. The staff was great, the room was very clean but not spectacular from a comfort level.

I had dinner at the Toro Toro and it was good but again over priced. The pastry biscuits they serve are fantastic, the ribeye and fried rice were both good, but my steak was more medium than mid-rare.

If I was paying my own money I would not stay at this hotel again. You can stay at the Marriot that is litterly a stones throw away for $125, get free parking, internet and breakfast.

Dear sliverhides,

Thank you for sharing your comments. We are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay, but disappointed that it did not meet your overall expectations. Please know that we take comments like yours seriously and that we have shared them with our entire staff. At the moment, we do charge a fee for access to the fitness center as well as the Internet, but it is available at two price points and connectivity speeds. Overnight valet parking is $36/night, but it is comparable to other downtown price points and a variety of options are available nearby as well. Thank you for the compliments on the food at Toro Toro, it is one of downtown Miami's newest hot spots. We hope that you will give us another opportunity to provide you with a great InterContinental experience on your next trip to Miami.

i don't usually enjoy the big pretentious hotels but would have to say that this hotel was really lovely. We got a great last minute deal on Hotwire after having to move from a previous hotel that was miles from anywhere and were pleasantly surprised with the friendly staff and overall ambience of the place.

The room was as to be expected, very well appointed, clean and modern. Pool area was lovely but not a lot of sun hit the area during the day and meals at the poolside cafe finish at a really early hour...couldn't quite understand this at all?? Tapas in the lobby restaurant were a little pricey but tasty.

Overall, a very pleasant stay at a genuine 5 star hotel.
