You may want to avoid this hotel if you are on vacation. It is definitely geared to the business traveler and offers no appeal to the vactioner. It is like being in a downtown hotel in any city, and that is not what we anticipated. There is no feel of being in Florida. Our room faced a connected office building where we had the view of cubicles and employees working. On day two, we requested a room change, which request they accommodated. We were then facing Kennedy Boulevard, where the traffice was very noisy. The rooptop pool area is small, and only accommodates approximately 30 people. The one time we went up there, there were no seats available, so we didn't bother staying. The hotel was clean, and the staff very friendly and accommodating, but would not stay there again for a vacation.
