“Convenient quiet airport hotel with bathtub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

I stayed here one night before taking an early flight. The hotel is under renovation so the restaurant is closed. We ate in the pub. The food was okay but pricey for what you got. You can walk to other restaurants from the hotel. We had the furthest room from the elevator. We asked to change but the staff said the hotel was fully booked. The outdoor pool was nice but it was tricky to get into the pool area. (You have to lift the pole at the top of the gate.) I had the pool to myself! The wake-up call for 5 am was done on time. Unfortunately, there was no food available at that time. I made tea in the room but I wished I had thought to buy fruit & pastry.
It was nice to have a bathtub when travelling. I had a nice long soak before going to sleep.
WE stayed on a Sunday night and there was no construction noise during our stay. I slept very well.

Room Tip: The halls are very long so ask to be close to the elevator.

Used this hotel as an overnight stop after flying in from UK and going on a cruise. Had to wait several minutes for hotel shuttle bus but then short ride (10 minutes) to hotel. Hotel undergoing some renovation but this did not affect us. Ours was one of the refurbished rooms and it was spacious and very comfortable. The only issue was the lack of a shower curtain. Had breakfast over the road at Latin Cafe for about ten dollars each. Hotel breakfast about twenty dollars each including taxes. Staff very helpful and good level of security. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the refurbished rooms. We were second floor.

I read the reviews and did not exspect much. How I was surprised with this hotel: Check - in friendly and speedy; I stayed two nights in different rooms and both rooms were newly renovated with comfy beds; one room had direct access to the pool area - great! Internet was fast and breakfast was okay. 2 minutes walk from the hotel on the left is a nice open air fish restaurant at the corner of the road junction - very good. Overall I can fully recommend this hotel.

We stayed one night on arrival in Miami and were very impressed with the check in treatment and the room which was very high quality. The bar was unfortunately quite poor but the snacks were ok. The pool and the gym were good.
Overall our stay was very enjoyable and , we thought, good value. Sadly it was let down by an indifferent check out experience.

Dear ToshKent, your visit along with your feedback was very much appreciated. We are very excited about our public area improvements along with the installation of the latest in technology. All is complementing the new guest room experience, specially the 42" Flat screen TV, the modern, stylish furnishings and color choices. Once renovation is finalized by years end, the TV system will be upgraded to a High Definition platform. We can now offer a prime location next to Miami International Airport matched by an updated modern lodging experience.
It is with disappointment to read about the shortfall in the service experience. I have shared your feedback with those in charge of the affected departments and it was prominently posted so that all my business partners can read it and make adjustments where needed.
Again, thank you very much for your business and quality feedback. We hope that you will visit us again, until then......Bon Voyage

I stayed here with a group to catch a flight from MIA. There is a lot of noise in the hotel till 6 PM everyday. If you arrive after that time it is ok .you can see why the place is being renovated when you arrive. Staff are very nice and accommodating. Location is very close to the airport. Should be Ok after the construction is done.Hopefully rooms will not be as tired as they are now

Dear drjeff, regret that the renovation noise interfered with the enjoyment of the hotel. We take every possible action to minimize the renovation impact on our guests.
I am certain that the quality of our product will be vastly improved when renovation is completed by years end.
Thank you for your feedback and many pleasant journeys.........

We stayed a night before boarding cruise liner. It seemed frequency from airport collection must be lower than other hotels. We waited for a long time, Mean while transporters of other hotel came twice.

Hotel was comfortable. ammenities were good.

We were coming in from another city and we overnighted at this hotel before leaving for a flight early the next morning. The hotel airport shuttle didn't come as frequently as we expected to pick us up from the airport and when it finally got there I practically had to jump in front of the shuttle to get it to stop to pick us up. We got there about 1130-1200 hoping for an early checkin, but the lady at the desk said they were full the night before and had no available rooms-- she didn't even check to see if anyone had checked out early and if a room could be prepared for us. She said that under no circumstances would anyone be able to check in before 3pm. The hotel has a locked room to store your luggage so we stored our bags and went and got lunch. The hotel is on quite a busy street-- but there are a couple of restaurants near by-- so the walk was not bad. We got back a little after 2-- and I talked to someone else about early checkin (I think it was a manager). He checked and found there was a room available that would meet our needs and so we took it. At that same time, I overheard the same lady telling another guest absolutely no checkin before 3pm and he had to wait in the lobby while we went to our room. Not sure what the deal was with that-- but I found it very discourteous. We booked our room with the buffet breakfast and which was nice-- great fresh fruit, yogurt, as well as an assortment of breads, scrambled eggs with toppings, bacon, sausage, and potatoes. If I needed to stay in the Miami Airport area again, I would try another hotel hoping to find something better, although overall it wasn't that bad.

Dear harvesttraveler, we like to thank you for your business and the posting of your feedback. As we currently are under renovation our rooms availability is and will be restricted until the end of November. As evidenced by earlier reviews, we are trying to accommodate early arrivals whenever possible. I am pleased to read that you had the opportunity to explore the surroundings and got a taste of the Miami Cuisine.
Again, thank you for considering our hotel and best wishes for safe journeys.........
As a note the future guests, our shuttle follows a 20 minute departure schedule from the hotel to the airport starting on top of the hour.
