“Great Service, Easy Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We weren't expecting this to be such a wonderful experience, after reading some of the reviews. However, the basic room was not dated and had a comfy king size bed and a decent view from the balcony (at an angle, so no view from the room). We asked for a nice view or upgrade if available, but no such luck, even though this is a very low season and there was never anyone but residents at the pool each time we went.

However, the pool was nice without being crowded, and the service has been really good. Dinner at the Italian restaurant was excellent, but read my other review about the seafood restaurant, Casablanca.

The area isn't nearly as crowded as South Beach, yet you have a view overlooking the inlet, bridges, and South Beach. There is a nice park next door with a jogging track, and the car traffic is quite light. We will be returning!

Room Tip: We had a standard room and the bathroom was quite small, though very clean. I understand better roo...

Condos were beautiful, views were amazing, service was always warm and friendly - overall a wonderful place to stay! With the property also being residence for condo owners, on-site food options (to eat in or have delivered) spread the whole range of what you want to spend. Can get a quick sandwich and other deli type things cheap, or reasonably/competitively priced bar & grill fare, or more expensive fine dining. Publix is a quick one-block walk to stock up on anything you don't want to eat out. And if you get a room facing the Bay, your plans for seeing anythign else in Miami seem to slip away because you will just want to sit and enjoy the view. Sure valet & internet are extra per day, but once we settled in, we didn't need the car until leaving. So at least it saved tips. And most people have hot spots on their cell phones now so the internet was not a big deal either. Overall it was a wonderful stay!

The service was excellent.
The room was even better than the description and got a free upgrade to a bigger one.
The location is perfect, minutes from downtown and south beach.
The building is a little old and the pool is not as good as compared to other hotels in Miami but really cannot complain for the price.

Overall it was a great stay there! Keep up the good work.

Overall this is a nice hotel, there were some issues with the air conditioning- required several shutdowns. It was not hot but became stuffy and uncomfortable. But I just went to the beautiful park and trails or walked along the Marina located right at the hotel. Also, I don't like hotels that allow pets, for 1.5 days the lobby smelled of urine, finally they did mop with bleach; whew.

The hotel and room were clean, staff was friendly and helpful. Pool was nice and clean. Walking distance to the free metromover to get around downtown Miami. About $20 cab to airport. We took the metro to metromower to get to the hotel and it took about a hour.

The interesting thing about this Hotel is that some of the best restaurants are located here. Primos has great Italian Food and The Oriental Restaurant on the Bayside is extraordinary. The location is super - accesible to all major attractions and Miami activities

Wonderful, clean and beautiful view for the night before we went on our cruise out of the Port of Miami. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It is within walking distance or short taxi ride to interesting restaurants. I would definitely stay here again!
