My husband and I stayed at the Regency Hotel on two separate nights on layover to Belize. I booked this hotel knowing that some of the reviews were not very positive. One of the reasons I ignored the reviews was because of the pictures on their website. The Regency appeared to have a decor authentic to Miami and I liked the fact that it was close to the airport. So, I ignored the negative comments and made my reservations. I ultimately regreted that decision. The first night we stayed at the Regency was Friday, February 22nd and it was a big disappointment. As mentioned in other reviews, the best part about this hotel is its lobby. Our room, on the other hand, was not quite as nice. It looked exactly like the pictures on the website, but it was very worn and outdated, especially the bathroom. Our room also faced the restaurant across the alley and the music from the band blared until closing time. However, we did eat at this restaurant earlier in the evening and the food there was excellent! The one thing we liked about our room was the fact that we could go out on the balcony and get some fresh air. My husband and I seriously considered cancelling our room reservation for our layover back, but decided not to go through the trouble. On our return stay at the Regency on March 2nd, our room was on the other side of the hotel and was much quieter and less weathered looking. All in all, this hotel is "okay" if you are catching a flight in or out the next day. The shuttle to the airport is free and runs every 30 mins. Although we waited awhile at the airport for the shuttle to come, it was very easy to flag down and it only took a few minutes to get to the hotel. If I would have booked this hotel for a week long vacation, I would have been very disappointed. The pictures on the website make it look a lot nicer than it really is. In my opinion, this hotel is overpriced for the quality of the rooms. I don't think I would return to the Regency Hotel again. I will also be sure to take the opinions from the reviews much more seriously in the future. The biggest plus for this hotel is its close proximity to the airport.
