I spent one night at this hotel, located about six miles from the Miami International Airport (MIA). I waited only fifteen minutes for the airport shuttle. The shuttle driver was a very nice Cuban-American woman with whom I enjoyed speaking in Spanish (my best foreign language). Interestingly, there is a nice Starbucks coffee shop right in the lobby of the hotel.
Because I arrived at about 10:00 am, I had to wait about three hours before my room was ready; a large group was leaving the hotel when I arrived there. (Check-in normally begins at 3:00 pm.)
The front desk receptionist, from Managua, Nicargara, was very professional and sweet.
My room was on the first floor of the hotel, and it was convenient and reasonably quiet. That is, until the huge jets fly absolutely DIRECTLY over the hotel, disrupting one’s rest or sleep or peace of mind. The soaring jets overhead, that are landing at MIA, sound just like they are coming through your bedroom. The planes fly over about every 3-5 minutes...day and night. Ugh! Oh well, I got the room by spending my free Marriott Rewards points (20,000 of them). PLEASE bring your earplugs, patience and sense of humor if you decide to stay at this hotel; you’ll need all three of those elements to survive.
My clean bedroom was furnished with a king-size bed, nice writing desk and adjustable chair, plenty of lamps, and attractive decor. There was a separate sink from the bathroom across from a closet which contained an iron and ironing board. The bathroom itself had a tub/shower combination, commode, and plenty of towels.
Breakfast, included with my freebie stayover, was good and tasty. What more could you ask for? I know from personal experience: better earplugs!
