I liked that it wasn't in South Beach, unlike some other reviews. Yes, it was inconvenient to not be able to walk to restaurants but the privacy and seclusion of the hotel vs. something in SB is a better trade off for me. We stayed here when we ran the Miami Marathon and we were surprised at the quality of the hotel. Beautiful facilities, great pool areas both in the ground floor and the 7th floor. We booked through a coupon site so I was surprised that they gave us a room on the 7th floor, making it incredibly convenient to go to the pool and see the view of the ocean. The food at the hotel restaurant was pretty ok. I thought it was incredibly safe, I've stayed on SB with rooms that have doors facing the street so I guess safety is different for everyone. The room was clean, comfortable and very spacious for 2 people. i loved having 2 bathrooms, just like at home. The only downside is that there was no microwave, just a small fridge. We travel with race-specific food so we just had to eat it cold. The staff made it a point to ask us how our race went after the marathon. All in all, I'd stay here again, which I can't say for any other South Florida accomodation I've stayed at.
7th floor is convenient, but there were people coming in and out of the pool at night, so higher flo...
