The Colony Hotel was just OK. When in Miami you typically don't spend a lot of time in the room. With that being said the bed was comfortable and the shower was hot, which met our basic needs. There isn't much to the hotel as far as amenities, so if that's important to you then this isn't the place for you.
I was most disappointed with the beverage prices. Beware of the happy hour as it is buy one get one free per person. My boyfriend and I bought two drinks during HH and the bill was $64! We couldn't drink our second beverage the same day, so they said we could come back the next day, show our receipt, and get our second drink. We did that, however they told us we couldn't sit outside since those tables were for customers who were paying for food/drinks. Trying to be understanding, we told them we would go ahead and order appetizers. My boyfriend decided to order a budlight after he finished his "free" drink, again trying to be considerate of the fact that they want guest who sit outside to order food. Trying to be considerate did us no good! They charged us $20 for the beer! Mind you he just got the same beer down the street At the Clevelander for less than $5!
Bottom line, if you get a deal on the rooms this place will do. Do not eat or drink there because it is a total ripoff!!!
