“Rebekah's graduation party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

The hotel was very clean and inviting. The staff was pleasant and directed us to our function in a timely manner. The service at the function was very good. The servers were very plesant and helpful. We had a very good experience and would recommend this hotel to family and friends for their functions or events. Also the location is in good traveling distance.

My husband and I visited Miami on business and were so pleased with staff and the hotel accommodations. We are actually considering visiting once a year with family and will definately stay here. Unfortuately, we were there on business, but they made us feel like we were on vacation from the warm welcome at the front desk to the beautiful scene we had from our hotel room. I highly recommend you stay at this hotel on your next visit.

Room Tip: Joanie at the front desk was very helpful in getting us in a room that would meet our needs. She su...

I totally enjoyed my stay at the El Palacio. I have traveled a lot my whole life and stayed at many different hotels, good bad and ugly. The El Palacio was great. The staff was polite and helpful.
I was there on business but brought my wife along for a little vacation. We had a pool side room with a hot tub. Although we never did use the hot tub, we enjoyed evenings sitting outside by the pool.
When I travel to Miami or anywhere close by, I will stay at the El Palacio every time.

I am so glad that we chose to use El Palacio Sports Hotel & Conference Center as the venue for my daughter's Graduation Banquet/ Party! Gelin, my main hotel contact person, was very instrumental in making us feel that we had chosen the right place for this well earned celebration. She showed a great deal of patience and professionalism the entire time.

Joanie, hotel sales manager, the food service and banquet room set -up staff were very accomadating. The front desk staff always made me feel warm and welcome.

El Palacio was a great venue choice: elegant banquet room,on-sight lodging and great amminities just to name a few. The guest of honor and everyone in attendance seemed to have throughly enjoyed themselve!

Room Tip: The view from the balcony overlooking Calder Race Traack is a very nice view.

My wife and I have stayed at El Palacio several times. On our last visit, we were surprised to see several 20-year-old cheerleaders in the lobby practicing for an audition for one of the local sports teams. They serve a nice basic breakfast each morning and there's a cute mini-golf course in the back behind the swimming pool. My favorite rooms overlook the track where you can watch racehorses working out in the early morning. The staff is always friendly and helpful and we have gotten to know several of them over the years.

Room Tip: A room with a view of the track is most interesting.
