I stayed here a few days ago during a very long layover in Miami. There is a hotel in Miami International Aiprot but I decided against staying there since the reviews were so poor. This hotel is about a 5 to 10 minute ride from the airport (there's a shuttle that picks up at the airport every 30 minutes so it's very accessible). From the moment I checked in the front desk agent was prompt and friendly. She made sure I knew about all the amenities. It's very much "service with a smile" here. I had breakfast in the dining room and the young french gentleman who waited on me was very professional, prompt, and extremely friendly as well. The room was very nice,clean, and the bed was oh so comfy. I ordered room service when I woke up from my nap and again I was very impressed with the service. My tray was picked up promptly after I was done and when the dining manager saw that I hadn't finished my cheesecake she called to ask if it was ok and if I had any feedback or if I would like a replacement dessert. I didn't use the pool but it looked very elegant and nice. The gentleman (Horatio) who drove the shuttle back to the airport was very friendly and even recommended some great hotels for my next trip to Punta Cana (that's where I was coming from before my layover in Miami) I would recommend anyone stay here if you are visiting Miami. I definitely will be back the next time I am in town.
