This hotel is well located to explore the city and the beach. It's a five minute walk from a bus terminal. We used the buses to get to Miami Beach. The room was large, and had a small balcony that overlooked the bay. The concierge was excellent. She was very knowledgeable, and seemed sincere about wanting to offer guests the best experience of the city. The hotel is attached to a mall which has a wide variety of dining options for all budgets. A taxi to the airport costs about $25.
