“Would not return again.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2007

Simply the most inferior hotel I have ever used in Miami. Short on support services, separate payment required to park car (not billed to hotel room). Other problems included food scraps left in sink, room needs repair and updating. Also it would be prudent to bring your own soap and shampoo.

The most annoying factoid is they make a copy of your driver's licenses on checkin and tell you that you will get it back when you check out. I had to fight to get the two photocopies back.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2006

The hotel has a good location and the rooms are quite roomy to stay in. But the factors such as cleanliness in the furniture and carpets is bad. The front door of the room is unsecure and should have better locks for ones security in the night. For example, we had to put all the furniture up to the door to blockade it if there were to be intruders. The door from the kitchen that leads out to the hallway is also not well secured because it can easily open from the outside.
The T.V was very small compared to the size of the room. But besides that the cable had bad connection and you could not see the channels very clearly. The lightbulbs on the lamps were loose and it was hard to turn on and off the lamps.
But besides that, the beds, kitchen, and bathrooms were overall okay.
Also, in order to park your car, you have to pay $15 everyday and personally I think that it is expensive to have that price as a fee because some people don't use the car as much as others.
At the hotel, more people should be able to speak english without a strong accent because it is rather hard and complicated to understand what they are saying. Also, they should be of more friendly nature to the visitors at the hotel.
The safety box in the room is charged $1 for everyday even if you use it or not. They don't ask you if you have used the safety box... they just charge it onto your bill when you check out.
I would say that this hotel is good to visit for a short amount of time and not for a long stay.

  • Liked — the space in the rooms
  • Disliked — cleanliness
  • Tips/Secrets — be careful with the front door of the room because it is unsecure and bring money for the parking

We stayed at the Four Ambassadors for one night pre-cruise and one night post-cruie earlier this month. This is a condo complex where one tower is short-term or hotel style rentals. The neighborhood is nice and relatively safe, on the edge of the financial district. Both of the units we stayed in were quite clean, but getting a bit shabby around the edges. Since there were two and adults and two adult-sized teens to be accommodated, we opted for the deluxe suite, which gave us tons of room and was cheaper then paying for two "regular" hotel rooms elsewhere. The only major complaint was that in neither unit was the sofa bed really in usable condition. My son was a good sport about it both nights, but then he can fall asleep sitting up! Even though there were four of us expected, we had to call for extra towels both stays (there were only two complete sets in the entire unit). The housekeeping staff spoke very little English, so it was a good thing that I was able to dust off my high school/college Spanish.
Many permanent/long term residents apparently Cuban--so I suppose language problem a non-issue for many people. Nice little deli, coffee shop, Intenet cafe, two specialty restaurants. We got supplies for quick breakfasts at the deli both stays (our units had complete kitchens), which probably saved some time and money. Intenet access was easy and cheap at $2.50 for 30 minutes and $5.00 for an hour.

Previous review had indicated that it was only a short/cheap taxi ride to pier, Sobe, etc. The closest and cheapest taxi was about $6 to the Bayside Marketplace. It is about a $12 ride to the pier and nearly $25 to the heart of South Beach. Something tells me that the higher gas prices have driven up the taxi fares since earlier this year.

Three of us stayed overnight prior to a cruise embarkment. Its an apporx. $5-6 taxi ride to the Port of Miami. The exterior: very attractive. Four tower condos. The Lobby: Huge beautiful lobby. Communial space for all four towers. Has eateries, shops, and even dancing at night. (People were streaming in/out of one place with loud latin sounds blasting from the doors). We did some food shopping in the lobby store. Location: Not bad. 10 min. walk to shopping on Flager st.. Now, the room. The Four Ambassador Suites are condo size accomodations for sure. The room was huge. They are apartment size accomodations. Very spacious with two closets for storage. A kitchenette w/stove, microwave, toaster, and sink with gliding shutter doors to close it off from foyer. The room size and view gives this an above average rating. The view is absolutely stunning. You have a full view of the Miami river glistening at night. Breath taking! (you can see the Mandarin Orential across the river). The rooms decor; however, was very bland. Wood head boards to match the dresser-nothing pretty. There was a small round dining table in the bedding area. Bathrooms were clean. Staff was incredibly nice. We received a really great price on a website. Can't remember which one. I suppose I would stay here again. Hey, I can waiver a rooms decor for huge accomodations and cleanliness.
