“Hotel Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

My spouse and I had the wonderful opportunity to say in this hotel. From the time we arrived at the hotel until we left our experience was amazing. Everyone was professional and courteous. The room was exceptional. We have no complaints at all!

Love, love this hotel!! We always stay in one of their condos. We have traveled to Miami for the ony Ericson tennis tournament and to gather with family for Nrw Years. Love having washer and dryer in the units and full kitchen. Many restaurants to choose from in the lobby. Beautiful heated pool and wonderful jacuzzi (4). Have only stayed in this hotel each time we visit Miami and will continue to do so. Best location!!

Stayed at the Doubletree Grand Hotel in July 2013 as part of a mini vacation with my children. We stayed in one of their condo suites which had all of the amenities of home. Spacious living room and two separate bedrooms. The decor was modern and somewhat dated (and maybe that's because it's not to my taste) but fitting for Miami. The apartment really felt like two living spaces connected with a living room. The full room had it's own separate sitting room, bathroom and bedroom. The master was humongous and the master bath didn't disappoint. Our room had access to three balconies (one off the living room and one each off of the bedrooms). Add a full kitchen and laundry facility and you have a great space for a family of 4 to enjoy Miami. Our room overlooked the pool area below, faced the hotel next door and if you looked left Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.

The hotel was interesting in itself. The hotel is a combination of hotel space and private condominiums. The lobby had a shopping gallery which catered to both the residents and guests. How often do you see a high end dog groomer in the lobby. The hotel boasted at least 4 restaurants (chinese, italian, deli/bar and a coffee place). The food was ok, nothing spectacular but good in a pinch if you were hungry. There was a supermarket a block away so it made sense to shop and cook/prepare snacks and meals instead of dining in the hotel restaurants.

Great home base to explore Miami and the surrounding area. It's an expensive taxi ride to South Beach. Was able to use the hotel's reciprocal deal they have with the Hilton Bentley South Beach. For a small fee per person, you were given a parking pass and vouchers for a chair/umbrella on their portion of the beach. Nice way to experience South Beach without paying South Beach Hotel prices.

Would return to this hotel in a heart beat.

Room Tip: The suites appear to be on the higher levels of the building. If available, I would upgrade for t...

Excellent service and good quality facilities, especially the surrounding amenities under the same roof - shops, restaurants, nearby cultural and recreational facilities. Great neighborhood. There are three or four sit-down restaurants in the building, Chinese, Italian, seafood and South American, plus two massage facilities, barber shop, full-service hair salon, several shops for clothing, jewelry, pharmacy, etc., all under one roof. There is also a very nice park down the street and a major supermarket a block away. The hotel is in a neighborhood and is two blocks away from the major performance theater and a few blocks away from a major arena which includes the Miami Heat basketball games. There is also a free trolley and people mover that takes you to a shopping center and other venues. Fifteen minutes from Miami International Airport.

DoubleTree Hilton overlooking Biscayne Bay offered the perfect location, fantastic 9th floor room with balcony overlooking the bay and marina. VERY comfortable bed & linens - our experience was all very positive.

I like the Doubletree brand, simply more than just for their cookies, but also for their spacious rooms. I chose to stay at this Doubletree due to it's close proximity to the Port of Miami.

Upon arriving to the hotel, it was a little confusing as apparently the main lobby is for The Grand, which is kind of like a little shopping center and condos. The front desk for the hotel tucked away in an enclosed entrance off the lobby. Check in was quick and friendly.

Upon entering the room, it had the usual Doubletree feel although the room felt a little bigger, probably because it had a little bar area. The bedroom area was nice and spacious and the balcony which overlooked the marina was really nice. The bathroom had a stand in shower as well as a bidet. Our stay was very comfortable but I have to comment on the minor cleanliness issues such as smudges on the wall mirror, sliding glass door, and hair found in the bathroom area. This doesn't gross me out but, it certainly makes me shake my head.

For food options, you have to head down to the main lobby and the shopping center area. Deeper within the shopping center there's a food court however, the food was mediocre and overpriced. With that said, I'll never complain about how there are too many Starbucks locations, there's a difference between brewed Starbucks coffee to an actual Starbucks store, or at least a Dunkin Donuts, for myself being a California deprived DD fan!

In terms of location, not much to do in the area however, if you're catching a cruise ship, the location is gold! It was about a 10-minute cab ride costing $12.00.

Overall, even if this wasn't the best Doubletree I've ever stayed at, my general expectations of the hotel were met, especially in terms of location to where we needed to be.
