I read other reviews before i arrived from Minneapolis, and some people are to fussy, this is a superb hotel. The rooms are spacious with a small living room with couch and tv, two bathrooms and a very comfortable bed, and nicely decorated. The reception area is all marble with a bar and a coffee and snack bar, then outside a very nice pool area, again with a bar and snack area. I have stopped in alot of different hotels in my life, and this is certainly up there with the best. I agree it is expensive for cabs to downtown approx $30 a time, but the bus stops over the road and a single trip is only $2, or even better by a pass if your here for more than a few days and save more money. Also the food is very good and not as expensive as i expected. Kevin who works on the cafe bar in reception is a great guy, very friendly and informative about the area, telling us where to go and what to see etc. im writing this review after only being here on day 2 of 7 and overall a great experience, and if we get back to Miami id be back here. Probably compared to England a little expensive at $1500 with no food for a week, but you only live once, and im very happy we came here.
