I stayed in this hotel because I was attending a business conference. It is most certainly a VERY nice and upscale hotel. Here is my short list of pros and cons:
Pros: Very clean room, VERY friendly staff, good services for your conference. The pool is nice and looks right over the water. The location is decent, right off of Bicayne/US Route 1, and near some decent bars and restaurants.
Cons: The fitness center costs $15 just to use, even if you are staying at the hotel. That is the first time I have experienced that. There is more nickel and diming with the bell service, where there is a fee to watch your bags. That I see as taking advantage of business travelers, and many people will leave their bags, attend a session/meeting and then head to the airport. The floor I was on probably needed to have their air ducts checked out. The way air was coming out of them, it sounded like there was always someone vacuuming in the hallway.
Overall, I had a good stay at this hotel. I can't say that I would be able to afford this hotel if I was not traveling for work.
