“Modern and perfect if you want to check out Miami!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

When we arrived we where met by a friendly staff. We also got a warm chocolate chip cookie! The rooms where comfortable, big and modern. We also got a nice view towards the "river". The only negative thing I can think of about the room must be that the balconydoor was very hard to open. Right by the hotel, a free Trolley has a stop. So if you want to see some of Miami, you can take the trolley, and jump of any stop you want. Got a positive experience staying at this hotel!

We had booked 2 standard doubles for our party of 8. Upon arrival at 12:30 pm we were upgraded to 2 bedroom condos in the penthouse bayside!!! No wait (till 3:00). It was wonderful after a flight and transport from Fort Lauderdale. They were gorgeous and so spacious. We felt like royalty, all the amenities you could want with amazing beds and a view to die for. In the morning we watched our beautiful cruise ship pull in to port. You are a mile or less from the port. Fantastic. Local taxi charged 26.00 for ALL of us to go to the port. You are next to a public transportation hub so taking the bus for 2.00 to South Beach was easy, interesting and inexpensive. Our only complaint was lunch at the sports bar, food was not up to the standards of the hotel. But breakfast at the little steak house was definitely redeeming. Although we were looking forward to our cruise, we sure hated to leave this wonderful hotel. We will be back, as we are planning another cruise for 2014. This time I would like to stay longer and get to know Miami a little better. Also, pool and hot tubs are beautiful, pool at hotel next door looked dirty.

We stayed here the night before and the night after our cruise. While we didn't stay on the condo side, we were still very pleased with our room. The pools are beautiful, large and are deep enough. The pool deck looks out over the Biscayne Bay, the marina and the Cruise Docks. I would definitely stay here again.
The rooms are big and clean and the staff is nice! The beds are comfortable with down comforter and pillows and high count linins. Our room had a great water view and a 50” flatscreen TV and we fount the hotel very quiet. . The hotel has a big pool and Jacuzzis that is shares with the condo so the users are more upscale then most hotel pools. There is a marina behind the hotel and has restaurants and shops right off the lobby. There are a store selling a variety of sandwiches, fruits, snacks and a Starbucks in the attached mini shopping area. In the morning we went to the “Deli restaurant for breakfast. A delicious breakfast served by waiters in crisp white shirts and ties at around $7. No need to go too far!

Cons:
Balcony sliding door did not function so you could not go outside.
The $29 parking fee

Amazing place! Loved it. We were on the 30th floor (condo not the hotel). Would second it no matter what

Pros - Spectacular views, beautiful suite with spacious 2 bed, 2 bath, massive living..Awesome pool in the 10th floor

Cons - Nothing other than the $29 per day valet parking but there is nothing you could do since there were no other options..

Still a great place

Room Tip: Ask for the condo with a view

Stayed here a coupe of years back and loved it so decided t stay again. This time they "upgraded" us to a 2 bedroom condo over in the Grand residential building. I am completely blown away that I'm getting all f this for $130. 2 bedrooms, 3 tv's, full kitchen, washer and dryer.

Now even staying on the hotel side like we have done in the past is still an exceptional deal but staying on the residential side is just above and beyond. Wish I was staying more than one night.

Now on the negative is the fact that we have to pay $25 for valet parking. It's just a hassle and an un-needed expense in my opinion.

Nice one night stay before leaving for Bahamas. Would have preferred a higher floor because we were right over awning with garbage from higher floors thrown on it. Despite that, nice view of harbor and Port of Miami.
Room was nice, balcony was small but functional. The sliding door going out to the balcony was very hard to open.
Went for late night dip in jacuzzi, was having great time until ran out by a gang of huge roaches.
Room service was great. Wife and I split delicious omelette. Overall nice stay.
