Friends of ours and us stayed at the Dream for the Miami Marathon. We really enjoyed our stay the the staff made us feel right at home. I was glad to have the opportunity to see our friend's handicap room. The handicap room has a much larger bathroom (with a door!) - so just a suggestion when you make your reservations. Our regular room was just perfect from a size perspective - of course its not huge but who is spending much time here? The lighting - which everyone comments on - is really cool, at first, but then the novelty wears, but still really awesome; nice to see some creativity! Daily we opened the window shade every day, problem solved. The bed is extremely comfortable but wish there was a regular duvet cover instead of two sheets over an insert. Tossers and turners will have this pulled apart quickly....as I soon discovered. We came with earplugs from reading previous reviews but didn't need at all. The shower is big and plenty of hot water fast. The toilet - well, you've read about this already so hope you're not shy. Staff here is phenomenal, everyone was super nice and friendly. Hats off to Melissa at Highbar for ensuring we were well taken care of. The drinks were good, wine selection reasonable and food from Serafina fast and delicious. The pool is warm and beds/chaises comfortable with plenty of various stylish seating options around the roof to provide whatever view or sun/shade requirements you have. Downside to Highbar is the awful rooftop club a block away blasting music that is just too damn loud; it completely drowned out the great lounge music Highbar plays throughout the day. But note this was only really a problem one day. Try to take the stairs to Highbar, the elevator is without competition, the slowest on the planet (but the first full-length mirror you'll find to check your outfit!). The deal on chairs at the beach is great, and only one block away. From a design point of view, the hotel is just gorgeous, much like its sister Dream Downtown in NYC. Starbucks is just one block away (poor service daily). We'd definitely stay at the Dream again .
