“Good hotel with outstanding views of downtown Miami”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Only stayed 2 nights but the rooms are all suites with 2 bedrooms, huge lounge and kitchen area and a full length balcony. Ours looked over downtown Miami so always something to watch. Opened the door to sounds of WOW from my teenage boys. Art Deco style looks good albeit some areas are getting a bit tired. The pool area is good with a very swim ale pool and 4 connected hot tubs. The hotel is connected to a number of restaurants/eateries/ bars so some local choice. Easy walk into downtown or straight across the venetian bridge to South beach which is also a great place for a morning run at sunrise!!

Visited Miami for a gala dinner party/reunion at the Miami Double Tree Hilton and chose to stay there 2 nights. Excellent location and prices....although not on the ocean....has outstanding views of the bay and city....ease of access from I-95. Staff was excellent, all facilities were great, many choices to eat and shop within the hotel.....you can spend little or lot on food....choices for every pocket....we were lucky to be assigned to a condo which made us feel like a million dollars, very clean quiet and comfortable.....wish I could come back more often, but will definitely stay here next time in Miami....much better value than on ocean. did not use the pool this time, I did on my previous stay and it was very nice also.

I highly recommend this hotel. There are a few other options around the area but this is best for the money. The pool is amazing, security is great, good restaurants within a 5 min. walk, the staff exceeds expectations, and cheap parking directly next to the hotel. (valet is a bit expensive, use the lot next to hotel for $15/day).

The DoubleTree Biscayne Bay was a fantastic place to stay prior to embarking on a cruise. The location is extremely convenient to the Port of Miami (less than a mile but still requires a taxi) and, pre-cruise, shopping and dining at Bayside Marketplace, an indoor/outdoor market. In fact, there is a free trolley, with a stop directly across from the hotel, that will take you to Bayside. Additionally, the hotel was upscale (lots of marble), very clean, and all staff was very helpful and accomodating. A bonus was a balcony view of the yacht harbor and the Port in the distance.

Hotel location is good, you need to have a car to go the places but also supermarkets are walking distance. don't forget to take your confirmation with you, hotel is massing up with your account, they can't manage with guest's account especially with the long stays. Always take your receipt !!!!! Also there's no other choice than Vale parking which is way expensive 30 dolar !

Ceylan K, thank you for staying with us and for posting a review. I apologize for accounting massing up with your account. Not sure what they massed up but I do apolgize for that. We do hear that issue regarding valet parking too, fortunately for us the 3rd party company that handles parking sets their pricing based off the two closest hotels which charge $28 and $26 for valet parking. Thank you for choosing to stay with us for your trip to Miami though.

David V, thank you for your review and I apologize for the leaky shower head you had to deal with during your stay. We are in the process of replacing carpeting in the hotel rooms and unfortunately despite the major issues you encountered during your stay Hilton is very happy with us and wont be removing the name from the hotel. Happy travels in the future!

The location of the hotel is very excellent. Seconds away from AAA Arena, Bayside, and Downtown. Minutes away from Miami Beach and South Beach. There's a lot of thing to do around the area. The hotel itself is beautiful, with great room service and valet attendants. The only thing I really didn't like about the hotel was the location of the side by side elevators. The hotel is like a big "U" shape with the elevator located on one side of the "U", and unfortunately my room was located on the other side of the "U", which meant there was a long walk from the elevator (top of the left side "U") to my room (top of the right side "U").

5thelementium, glad to hear you enjoyed the hotel and found the location convenient. Thank you as well for taking the time to post a review and do apologize for the long walk from your room to the elevators. We hear that sometimes as the way the building was built is not the most convenient as far as distance to the elevators. I do hope that you'll choose to stay with us again for your next trip to Miami.
