I stayed here on an overnight layover at MIA. The rooms were clean and spacious and they were adequate for the night. Hyatt Places look the same all across the US so this one in Miami is reliable in that sense: big bed, big TV, sofabed couch with a comfortable blanket, a place to plug in all your electronics. Theres a free breakfast buffet when you wake up the next day and wifi is free throughout the hotel. I can see myself staying here for a few more nights the next time I am in Miami. But only if I am renting a car.
What's annoying with this hotel is the shuttle service. Nowhere on the website when you book does it say that you have to call the hotel to have them pick you up from the airport. It just says complimentary shuttle to and from MIA. So after the regular gong show that is going through MIA's immigration and customs, the last thing you'd want is to stand at the curb for an hour waiting for a shuttle that never arrives. Then finally decide to take a cab and realize that your "airport" hotel is a $40 cab ride away.
I arrive in a foul mood (more because of the MIA gong show than the shuttle fiasco) but respectfully address the shuttle service with the staff later in the evening. The response was, "But you have to call. If you don't call we don't pick you up!" Ah, yes, right! How stupid of me... *facepalm*
So if you want to stay at this hotel near the Miami airport be forewarned: it's not as close as you think and call ahead of time for the shuttle. This hotel is best booked with a car rental.
