“Loved my stay here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for 2 nights and I have absolutely no complaints!

The staff was friendly and accommodating, including providing us with an affordable rental car service and after hours transportation at a cost (before we got the rental). The hotel shuttle provided us with free transportation to and from the airport and nearby malls, the lobby and rooms were kept very clean, the complimentary breakfast was buffet style and all you can eat (the scrambled eggs tasted weird though but everything else was good), the wifi was accessible in the rooms and the beds provided the most comfortable night's sleep I ever had! I also loved the massaging style shower head in the gorgeous bathroom.

In addition, even though you're supposed to checkout at a certain time (I can't remember it offhand), as our flight was later in the day, they held our luggage while we continued to site-see and just collected it in the evening.

If you're only thinking about staying here, stop thinking and book it!

Stayed at this hotel a couple days before our cruise as we wanted to get in some shopping. Arrived at MIA and called hotel who sent shuttle within 20 mins. Next day took advantage of free shuttle to Dolphin Mall. Wasn't aware that the shuttle also went to another mall and would have probably split up the day had we known that. But lesson learned for next time. Breakfast was awesome and had plenty of variety from hot sausage, eggs, waffles, oatmeal to your regular cold finds. Instead of taking cab to POM we took another reviewer advice and took the free shuttle back to the airport and then grabbed a cab from there at their set rate of $24. The only downfall no fridge in our room. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Check to see if you can have a room with fridge. As well, the two beds are doubles and the other Ha...

My business brings me to Miami weekly for the next several months and the hotel is clean, and around many eateries, and a mall. The staff is helpful and the hotel is one of the best. I would recommend this hotel for a long or short stay.

This is our third year staying at this location during NASCAR race weekend. Thursday nite through Sunday nite. Though we do miss the fish tank, there is much more usable space for breakfast when the hotel is crowded.

An earlier reviewer noted the fliers under the door. This distresses me that, nearly 4 months later people, who are not guests, are STILL wandering the halls. Over 4 nite we had three fliers.

Our room, a king, was spotless, with an LG flat screen, good lighting and sufficient desk space. The bedding had a freshly cleaned duet & sheet, which are being cleaned for each new guest. BRAVO!

Breakfast offered a really nice variety of dry cereal, bread, make your own waffle, and hard boiled eggs. The itty bitty creamers are annoying for someone who wants light coffee, but not tragic. Do wish there were bananas for cereal.

The desk staff are responsive. When the safe did not work in our room that same day it was entirely replaced and the desk cheerfully re-keyed our room cards ... We were never made to feel we were an inconvenience ... Even when the phones seemed busy and the lobby bustled.

The hotel has a shuttle to and from the airport, which is a plus because driving in Miami can be a death trap. The hotel is near couple big malls, as well as centralized from the beach and other attractions. There are plenty of restaurants around and within walking distance

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite. It's worth it. Plus you get a mini kitchen for the extended stay

We stayed here last year, liked the hotel and decided to book again.
This trip we actually stayed twice, once as a stopover between flights, then again for our shopping trip to Miami,
One night stopover was easy, arrive at airport, ring the hotel and they send a shuttle bus for you which arrives in about 20 minutes. Book the shuttle for the return journey next morning.
On our return to Miami we stayed while we shopped the malls and all the other places we like to go.
The staff do very well here, everybody speaks, makes eye contact and wants to help, that does make a difference to us.
Housekeeping was excellent.
Front desk found us an umbrella when we wanted to walk out in the serious rain.
The breakfast, included in our room stay was good. Choice of cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts, pastries, waffles, toast, boiled eggs plus a couple of different hot choices each day such as bacon or sausage with eggs. OK, not 5 star, but freshly prepared and ample choice.
There is hot coffee available in the lobby 24 hours (We never actually used our room coffee maker).
They have a bar that opens in the evenings, $5 for a draft beer and a good choice of spirits. Also no objection if you take your own supper to eat with your beer.
There is a small pool area with plenty of tables and chairs if you want to take your breakfast outside and a small shop for essentials and snacks.
The hotel is next to the turnpike,(ideal location for us) so you can hear the traffic noise in the pool area, though not in our room.
We think the location is great, There is a strip mall at the side of the hotel, a great Cuban restaurant, a fantastic Italian restaurant, plus 3 other, non chain, non franchise REAL places to eat! There is also a McD, a BK and a Dunkin D's here, also a drug store.
We had a rental car (parking is free and lots of it) but it is good to go out to eat without needing to drive.
Our room ( a "basic room") had 2 queen beds, lots of space, small bathroom, large TV and free internet access that worked all the time.
We did use the business center (2 computers, scanner, printer) which was also free.
The guests we met seemed to be a mix of shoppers on vacation and business types.
To sum up:
We will be stay here again on our next Miami trip

My husband and I stayed for One night layover to do some shopping as our flight wasn't until 4:30 pm the next day. We found that waiting around for the shuttle waisted so much of our time.

We tried to get the shuttle to the mall from the Hotel and had to wait 40 minutes before the shuttle arrived from the airport as it was rush hour traffic the day we arrived.......The front desk called a taxi for us but it never came....The next day the same thing happened....The driver took someone to the airport and when we asked to be dropped off at the Dolphin Mall first he said we would have to wait until he came back from the airport as he couldn't drop us off because he wasn't going that way....Again, I had the front desk call a taxi but it never came....we had to wait 40 min..before the shuttle came back from the Airport....Very annoying when you don't have much time to waist....The Taxi cabs must not want to come to this Hotel as they know there is a shuttle service.....so we were left standed for so long.....:(( Management should definately consider having 2 shuttles at this Hotel......One for the Airport runs and one for the shopping runs....This way there won't be any dissapointed guests, as mostly everyone books this hotel because of the shuttle service to and from the Airport and shopping....I tried to book at Courtyard by Marriott right at Dolphin Mall....as I usually walk to the Mall....but they were fully booked so decided to try the Hampton Inn which advertised there transport by shuttle....If they consider getting another shuttle I will book with them again....if not I will definately stay at the Courtyard to maximise our shopping time....

We enjoyed everything else about this Hotel.....the breakfast, room and especially the Beds...:))
and my husband loved the Hot chocolate.....
