From the moment I booked this trip I was in contact with the hotel with questions and queries as I wanted to make the most of our week in Miami. Nothing was too much trouble for John the concierge, he booked trips for us, upgraded our room when he heard it was our anniversary trip and my husband's birthday, he advised on how best to get from the airport and even contacted us on our arrival as although it was his day off he wanted to ensure we had arrived safely! Wow what service. Everyone was so lovely the pool bar staff the staff in the entrance and the cleaners. The glowing reviews that comment on the staff and their'over and above' service are sooooo true and certainly made this a great trip for us. The hotel itself is a delightful building with original deco design features. Having toured round most of Miami I am so pleased we chose this kind of hotel, this is what icame to Miami for and I was not disappointed. We had breakfast on our first day in the hotel, it was very tasty and served by a lovely guy. We didn'thave any other meals in the hotel but only because we wanted to try so many other places. The honest advice from John helped ensure we avoided tourist traps and enjoyed great food.
We would recommend:
The big bus tour
The Venetian pool
The Everglades trip
Visit some of the nearby state parks for quiet coves and safe swimming ( we hired a Harley for this)
The key west trip-especially fury's reef and Rita snorkelling!
And of course......stay at this hotel....The Hotel!!
