It was my first time in Miami and people warned me about being in North Miami because of the crime and whatnot so I was kind of nervous when arriving at the hotel. I was pleased to see that throughout the week I was there, there were no problems at all in the area. Pete checked us in and was very friendly. Our room was a great size and although we didnt have a balcony in our room we had a screen door that we could open if we wanted to get fresh air at night.
This hotel is about 20 minutes from anywhere you want to go. It took us about 25mins to get to South Beach in rush hour.
One thing I recommend doing is getting breakfast room service! The breakfast was AMAZING and it beats the prices at Denny's across the street. To this day my fiance and I talk about how good the pancakes were.. they reminded us of home cooking. I loved the fact that their prices for room service arent inflated unlike other hotels. It was a really good convenience!
I would definitely come to this hotel again! The beds were comfy, the service was amazing and the location was very ideal if you want to get away from all of the hustle and bustle of the city.
