I'll start off by saying that I really enjoyed this hotel. I have stayed in Miami hotels before a cruise 8 times in the last four years. This hotel has been the best by far.
We arrived at the hotel around 6pm. Check-in was quick and accurate. The front desk associate informed us that the Manager's Reception had started and that we had an hour and a half to enjoy the reception.
We went to our room after check-in. The room was very spacious, and clean. I particularly liked the fact that the sleeping area and living area were separated by a door, creating two separate rooms. The room was also equipped with a microwave, which was good for my sister because she needed to heat something up.
After unloading our bags in the room, we went down to the Manager's Reception. The bar staff was very friendly. The drink list was more than I would have expected from a free cocktail party. It was a nice break after a long day of travel. The design of the hotel has an atrium-style, open-concept dining/social area that's the height of the hotel, with water elements and tropical plants. It's very inviting.
The highlight of the stay was the breakfast. I was expecting a warm continental breakfast. However, what I got was a big buffet style breakfast with warm pancakes, fresh fruit, cereal, breakfast sides (sausage/bacon/homestyle potatoes), biscuits and gravy, juices, milk, coffee...etc., etc., etc. all served in the open atrium area. The perfect start to our morning, and COMPLIMENTARY!
At check-out, there were no surprise charges. Parking is only $11, and includes in/out privileges, which is more than reasonable for the area. There's also a free shuttle from/to the airport; however, we did not need to use it as we had a rental car.
Overall, a great start to our vacation. I will definitely be staying here again in November for my next cruise.
