Not being familiar with the Miami area, we picked this hotel by location and price alone. Staying only one night prior to a cruise from Miami, we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and moern decor. The hotel itself is just over one year old. The staff was very friendly and professional and, when asked, provided suggestions to restaurants in the area. The hotel has its own bar area which is used in the morning for the complimentary breakfast. Not just the usual coffee and donut breakfast, this amenity featured scrambled eggs, sausage, muffins and a make your own belgian waffle station. Much better than what was anticipated. The hotel also provided complimentary shuttle service from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to the cruise terminal. A little caution should be used when leaving the property as the surrounding area is not a "tourist area". I would definitly recommend this hotel to travellers looking for a good value at a good price for the area. Especially those staying over prior to a cruise departure. I will definitly be coming back for my next cruise from Miami.
