“Great pre-cruise hotel and good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We reserved this hotel months prior to our cruise based on the reviews read here on tripadvisor, location and price. We drove from S.C. and arrived in Miami a few hours early and the hotel staff was able to check us in early. We stayed in room 1010 facing a busy street and construction which didnt bother us. In fact, it was interesting watching the builders work while waiting for family members to freshen up. The room was clean and quiet and the beds comfortable. The hotel offers free wifi. The pool with a small courtyard is on 7th floor as well as a small gym. Parking is connected to the hotel which is nice because you can access lot from third floor elevator rather than outside on ground level. Walking distance to CVS and Ross stores as well as eateries. Walking distance to Bayside and AA arena. Felt safe at night. Didnt eat hotel's pricey breakfast, walked to nearby Miami Deli instead but did buy coffee at Starbucks in hotel.
Only negative is slow flushing toilet but staff repaired right away and offered us a different room we declined as we were only there for one night. Will stay at this hotel again.

We stayed at this property for 1 night after our cruise (really close to the port less than 10 minutes). We arrived in Miami early so we stopped at Bayside and had lunch at "Latin American Cuban Cuisine Restaurant" and it was perfect. We returned to the hotel at 3 to check-in, it was quick and painless, self parking is $18 and valet is $25. Our room was 614, it was clean, smelled and looked fresh, beds were super comfortable and we greatly appreciated that after sleeping on an uncomfortable bed for 7 days! We had a mini fridge. Bathroom was roomy and clean. There's a lot within the area, CVS, Walgreens, Subway (we ate there), Starbucks, La Granja (soup is good and very busy so that's a good sign), Ross, Marshalls, and lots of eateries and there's a Whole Foods being built across the street. Only thing I must point out is we faced the main drag and at night you can hear some cars and motorcycles racing through and cops with their sirens following after. There's a traffic camera that flashed through out the night thanks to all the red light runners. I would definitely stay there again (not facing the main drag).

Room Tip: For a good nights sleep do not get a room facing the main drag.

This is an absolutely amazing hotel, staffed quite excellently. I arrived late with my girlfriend and we we joking around with one of the hotel staff member's who took care of us upon entry. He took the terrible car ride that I just had off my mind and presented me with a carefree night in a king suite. He later came up to give me a wine opener, towels, extra toiletries, a new bigger refrigerator, and extra batteries. He was highly accommodating and so was the other staff members. Marvin Rosel was his name and he was a great help to me. All and all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to have a great hotel experience

We stayed there while going to see miami marlins ball game. The hotel is very close to the park. It was a short taxi ride, it would ave been nice if the hotel had a shuttle. That is my only recommendation. I will stay again.

Booked this hotel for one night prior to leaving for our cruise. Lovely downtown location and we had a view of the port from our balcony. Staff was friendly and provided very good service. Rooms were well appointed and clean too. We had a very nice and large breakfast in the bistro and arranged for the shuttle to take us to port for $5 each. Nice way to start our vacation.

This Courtyard seems to have been remodeled lately, although some of its features are still old fashioned. Rooms have a good size but the bathroom is so little that only one person can be in it at a time.
Breakfast is not included; there is a bistro where you can buy fruit, sandwiches or drinks.
Now, the location is excellent. Bayside is only a couple of blocks away, as well as the metro rail and tons of stores and small restaurants.

We stayed here for 2 weeks at the time of moving to Miami! Location is great with free metro mover and miami trolley right next to you. No free breakfast is a drawback! Free wifi in rooms is not all that great. Love the starbucks in lobby. Overall, Great hotel if you have stuff to do in downtown!
