I tend to stay at this hotel whenever I am in Miami. It is close to everything especially the Dolphin Mall. Rooms are large with comfortable beds. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful good beyond the call of duty. Received a special gift on check in - complimentary water, sun chips and a personalized note. I think it was because we have Silver Marriott Reward status. What would cause me to give this hotel 5 stars is if they had a shuttle to and from the airport and to and from Miami International Mall. When I had stayed there in previous years they had shuttle service to Miami Int'l Mall but I had been renting a car so I didn't realize the rules had changed. It was so disappointing as I didn't have a car. May have to go back to staying at Hampton Inn Doral - Dolphin Mall as they offer this. The only convenience of this location is it is a short distance to the mall. I think because of this the rate fluctuates extremely high for a hotel of this category. I paid $179 base rate + tax. Originally the room rate was $199. I waited two weeks before my trip and rate had dropped. When this hotel first opened rates were low $79 +.
