Booked for three nights, following a cruise, based on TripAdvisor reviews. Booked a "port view" room on 15th floor. Rates appear to drop substantially when the cruise ships have left port. We paid $179 through their website. I thought cost was very reasonable for the quality, location and amenities of the hotel.
We arrived about 10:00am following disembarkation of a cruise. Fortunately, and very very unexpectedly, we were able to take occupancy of our room. The room was terrific. It appeared to have been recently and thoroughly renovated and was very clean and comfortable (the bed was supremely comfortable). Internet, about $13 / day, was very good. Gym was well equipped and clean. Breakfast was not included but was available from a menu or buffet. We ordered form the menu and found the quality excellent, realistically priced but portions a bit large for us. Service was excellent from all hotel staff that we encountered.
The location turned out to be much better than I expected. There is a bus and free People Mover station across the street. $2.00 per person will get you to South Beach (taxi back, after dinner in South Beach, was $14.00 excl tip). The PeopleMover is an excellent way to get into downtown or to connect with the light rail system that you can take to various sights.
There is an Enterprise rental car in the small mall that is attached to the hotel. Good for a one day rental for going to sights beyond the reach of public transit.
There aren't many dining choices within easy walking distance. But we found the Italian restaurant in the adjacent mall to be very good, we didn't expect much, but we had two very good dinners with good service at realistic prices.
Some have criticized the hotel as being a typical business hotel - that isn't necessarily a bad thing in my experience. . It is not a boutique hotel, but the convenience, quality and service more than make up for lack of boutique ambiance.
