“"Best Kept Secret in Miami"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2009

Originally booked for two nights but stayed for five as a staycation/retreat with a great per night price through the Preferred Hotels website. The Blue is located in Doral which is the new heart of Miami industry. It is also the home of the Doral Golf Resort and "The Blue" is situated on the Blue Monster course with nice views of part of the back nine. The rooms are all suites with Junior Suites minimum size 700 sq ft. I had a one bedroom suite 1, 010 sg ft which has a full sized kitchen, two full bathrooms, a living room with 42 inch LCD, a Sony DVD/CD player with 2 speakers, Free wifi or bring your own ethernet cable. The bedroom has a 32 inch LCD TV with it's own bathroom, that has two sinks, whirlpool bath, separate shower and toilet. Nice amenities. The balcony has a ceiling fan and nice outdoor furniture. The rooms are all decorated in soft colors with combination of tile and carpeted areas and good quality furniture also. Quiet and clean rooms( good sound proofing as this is near the airport and at times along the landing path). Gated security is excellent plus upon sign in, you list who may pass security to see you. The pool area is near the main entrance, just past the guard house. Nice pool setting - very clean! There is a workout facility and the spa, Azul on the second floor of the main building. First floor has the front desk and 5300 Chophouse which serves locally purchased and organically grown foods. The restaurant has a limited menu, but the food is very good! The staff was excellent! For the price I paid ( no parking fees and free-wifi - not common in the better hotels in Miami) , this place is a diamond in the rough! Highly recommended!

This hotel was by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in my life. The room is incredibly spacious, the furniture is first class and the bath is unbelievable with a jacuzzi, separate shower, seperate toilet seat and two (yes, two) faucets. The TV is very large and there is even an LCD TV in the bathroom. There is a perfect kitchen with latest appliances (refrigerator, microwave, dish washer), all Kitchen-Aid. There is free internet, pool as well as free parking. The staff makes you feel so pampered that you never want to leave the resort. The hotel is so underpriced I hope it stays that way. There is simply no better hotel than The Blue that could provide better service in Miami for their price ($100 something when I stayed).

As long as you have a car (which you should if you want to travel Miami best), staying at Doral (which is the nice town the hotel is located) is much better than staying in the crowded areas such as South Beach and so on. The hotel is a short drive (around 10 minutes depending on traffic) to almost every major location in Miami.

I can't wait for the next time I'll stay at this hotel!

I read only excellent reviews for the Blue and after staying at the Blue, I now know why it is so highly recommended. My husband and I were returning from a cruise and needed overnight accommodations. The location of the hotel was perfect for our purposes (had to catch an early flight out of Miami). When we arrived to the hotel we were warmly greeted and allowed an early check in. When we arrived to the room, I was thrilled to see the excellent size of the room, along with many of the amenities (huge TV, VERY comfortable bed and sitting area, extreme cleanliness, wonderful balcony view. Additionally, I loved the bathroom area which was sparkling clean and so luxurious with a gorgeous shower area, jetted bath tub and wonderful products and large TV for those who would prefer to relax in the bathtub! Though my husband and I usually prefer to stay at a B & B, this was truly a great experience and certainly the best hotel I've seen in years (we have stayed at some top of the line hotels). I only wish every hotel could be so wonderful! I would recommend this hotel to any one looking for accommodations near Miami and/or near the airport. Also, for anyone looking for a luxurious place to simply relax this is perfect. The location is not far from Miami or the airport, if you have some form of transportation, yet it is very quiet and calm, There are restaurants nearby (again a car would be needed) and the hotel also has a restaurant which we didn't get the opportunity to try. Also, this place looks to be a golfer's heaven!

This is a great place to relax. I was looking for a place close to everything, but out of the way enough for peace and quiet when I wanted it. It feels like a condo, especially the suites. I was lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite and it was wonderful. There was a bit of a mix up when I first checked in (I suspect that's how I ended up in the suite), but it was ironed out relatively quickly and the staff made every effort to resolve the situation fast. The rooms are outstanding for the price: two bathrooms, a full kitchen, flat panel TVs and dvd players, robes, and ample closet space. It was a very nice stay.

The hotel was beautiful. The staff were very helpful, friendly & available. The managers were very accomodating. Unlike most hotels, you could tell that the staff believes that their job is to make sure that guests are happy. Lots of shopping & eating within minutes. The hotel security is 24 hours which was nice! I can't wait to go back and stay in the 3 bedroom suite!!
