“Average hotel away from the strip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This hotel is fairly good. It is a 3.5-4 star hotel at best. The rooms were average size but were clean. The roof top where the pool and the bar are located can definitely use an upgrade. The tiles on the floor were all loose and some were even lifted from the floor. The pool is small but clean. The bar and the food were very good. There is an awesome view of the bay from the deck. The breakfast buffet was fair to good but the service we received from our waitress was terrible. The waitress never came over to our table and we even had to retrieve our own utensils. Even after this terrible service I was billed for a service fee (tip). I contacted customer service and it was removed from my bill. Again, its a decent hotel and then again the pool issue was not that bad because after all it is a rooftop pool.

Great place for pre cruise stay. Rooms are nice. Pool is ehhh... It's there & has a cute little bar, but is set in between buildings on cement tiles. Just ok. Enough for kids for a day. Lunch was great, although on the pricey side. Breakfast buffet worked great ($22 adult, $5 kids, 3 & under free) for family of 5 with young kids- it was perfect. There is a free trolley that goes around, we took it to Bayside which had shops, restaurants (hard rock not recommended), outdoor music, carousels, etc.
the hotel is also connected to a small indoor mall with a couple of restaurants inside. (Sushi, bar & grill, & an upper scale place).
I would stay again for pre cruise -very close to port.

Stayed at hotel with my husband for International Boat Show Weekend. Location as perfect, as the connected marina is one of the free boat show venues. The hotel is modern, upscale, updated, and clean. Very solidly built - did not have noise interference from any neighbors or hallway traffic ( room doors are very heavy and quiet). The Catch has really great food; happy hour live entertainment on the outdoor deck overlooking the marina.

location near MIA airport, on the water with a good view even from the lower floors. nice rooms, well appointed, no in room 'fridge but in room coffee rooms are NOT quiet, from the garbage collection hammering dumpsters at 4am to being directly under the flight path of the airport--so you get to hear the very early morning overseas arrivals very acutely, not real restful. comfortable beds nice meeting rooms, drinkable hotel coffee virtually nothing within walking distance for restaurants. NOT a great location in the city to walk around--not real safe neighborhood. not great value all things considered

Room Tip: ask to overlook the water, not the city

I stayed at the hotel while on business in Miami. The reception is efficient and very helpful. The rooms have a standard, hotel-chain look but are quiet, clean, and comfortable. The room that I stayed in looked over the bay so that the view was beautiful. The hotel charges for wi-fi in the room so that guests tend to sit in the lobby and use the free wi-fi there. I did not eat in the hotel restaurant but there is an Illy-coffee outlet in the lobby with morning pastries. The hotel is minutes' walking from a free inner-city "people-mover" that takes travellers to the downtown. All in all, while the hotel lacks character, it makes up for it in very good service and comfortable rooms for a fair price.

The hotel was beautiful. Elevators were crazy fast! We stayed on the 25th and 27th floors and had little wait time for one of six to show up. Nice shops and places to grub between it and the double tree. Only weird thing was there were no towel bars or exhaust fans in bathrooms. Alarm clock had iPod connection, but difficult to program time as ours was not plugged in.
Overall, very happy with our stay plus added bonus was the hotel shuttle which dropped is off at south beach and picked us up as late as 9:30.

The hotel is located on Biscayne Bay (obvious I know!) and is generally in an ok position to SOBE ( about 15-20 min in a taxi). We stayed here for a conference, and the Internet and phone reception was not too good at times in the conference rooms. The bedrooms were spacious and the king bed was very comfortable. I had a small balcony looking at the Harbour and Downtown. The bathroom was on the smaller size. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the valet staff were great fun!!
