With a 7pm flight arrival from UK and cruise from Ft Lauderdale the next day this seemed like a good solution for a 1 night stay and it was.
Easy to walk your bags straight from arrivals - check-in was friendly and efficient and we were quickly in a large and attractive room with a king-sized bed. As the Virgin Atlantic food was so inadequate we needed to eat something extra before retiring for the night and the hotel restaurant was the convenient choice.
We were quickly seated and decided to just have the chicken tenders (listed as a starter) with a side of french fries washed down by a glass of wine and this was absolutely fine and just what we needed with friendly and efficient service.
Back to the room and the really thick curtains and effective double-glazing coupled with an extremely comfortable bed meant we had a great nights sleep - which lets face it is by far the most important thing in a hotel.
The bathroom is slightly dated with marble walls but this was probably a grand hotel when first opened and we couldn't fault the cleanliness or facilities (except you had to pay for wi-fi).
We breakfasted in the hotel and the menu provided a good choice and the food was excellent with good service.
Check-out was a doddle and it was then just a case of pulling the cases to the people-mover (light train system) that takes you to the rent-a-car facility.
One tip for anyone staying here and then taking a cruise from Ft Lauderdale the next day is to hire a car for 1 day to get from Miami to Ft lauderdale airport and then get the free shuttle from the rental car facility down to your ship. Booking this in advance in the UK cost me just £21 and this is far cheaper than taking a taxi. You can do exactly the same at the end of your cruise in reverse as there are no one-way drop-off fees in Florida.
