My husband and I stayed at the El Palacio Hotel Nov.10th and Nov.11th, 2012. We generally take this weekend getaway every Fall so that we can attend both a Calder Racetrack meet as well as a Miami Dolphins football game. We've always loved these yearly stays, and this one was no different. Check- in was a breeze, and our trackside room was perfect. (Thanks to Joanie Ross, the sales manager,for accommodating our room choice!) We so enjoyed watching the horses working out in the mornings and viewing the Sun Life Stadium's lights and action in the evenings.
Each night, after a fun-filled day, we ambled upstairs to the hotel's top floor Legend Sports Bar/Restaurant where we could relax and socialize with the other guests while enjoying the picturesque views of the Miami skyline, the Sunlife Stadium, and the Calder Racetrack. We also caught up on the other sports' events and scores on the number of TV's in the area. The welcoming Legends' staff made us feel at home and served excellent drinks and food.
We will definitely return next year..... The El Palacio deserves the name of "Sports Hotel"; It's a 10 minute walk to the track , and the ride to the stadium is 10 minutes as well. (The hotel sponsors a shuttle service to and from the game.....HOW CONVENIENT!)
