About 1,400 miles later, on a ride from Texas to Miami, the 3 of us pull into this hotel with no reservation. Cynthia and Jose (front desk) got us a great room at an excellent price. We spent 2 nights. She even suggested what was good in the restaurant. Jose moved his car so our motorcycles could be easily observed.
The suggested cuban food on the 9th floor was excellent. My first time eating cuban cuisine. Leidy (works the little first floor eatery) was an wonderful person to talk with as well as Manny (guard) and Orasmo (doorman) who hung around with me (practicing my spanish) while I had a cigar or two. The hotel driver (forgive me, cannot recall his name) went so far as to shared some of his cuban coffee with me (strong stuff).
The room was spacious and we slept like babies. Everything was clean, soft and comfortable. That is all you want returning to your room after you have put hundreds of miles on motorcycle. We went to Key West and came back.
We were "WOWED" by the place. MORE THAN THAT, I FELT LIKE FAMILY IN THIS HOTEL. THEY WENT THE EXTRA MILE FOR WE THREE STRANGERS. THEY MADE ME FEEL LIKE IT WAS NOT A "DUTY" BEING PERFORMED! You cannot beat that being on the road.
I cannot imagine them being much different with any other decent folks.
I will stay there and only there if I ever go back to Miami.
postscript: forgive any typos. did not feel like rechecking. just wanted to get my opinion in.
