The hotel and the staff were great. Our room was not only very nice, but spotless and the grounds tropical. The hotel is affiliated with Don Shula Resort, so you can enjoy the restaurant there too.
The DOWNSIDE. If you go to a game at Sun Trust Stadium, you will not have a problem getting at cab from the hotel down, but getting one back is an ABSOLUTE nightmare! The hotel is not that far from the stadium and ALL of the drivers say they only go to South Beach. Bottomline, its because the fare is more going to South Beach. The drivers ask where you are going, you tell them Miami Lakes, they flat out tell you NO. They lock the doors, roll up the windows and pull out!
I made numerous calls to the cab companies. Dispatch said drivers would be there and we got no shows. I called the hotel, the front desk called the cab company, by that time we were desparate, went to the parking lot staff, who flagged a driver down and made him take us (and 3 other couples who were stuck there too.) It took 1.75 hours to get a ride back!!!!!
