This Hotel is directly across Dixie Hwy from UMiami and is very popular. Yes, the decor may be a bit dated, but the House and Rooms are spotless, and the linens are new and fresh. Join the IHG Frequent Travelers for the free parking. Room rates are American Plan. WIFI is good, but you may need to click back in...

I stayed here for a meeting at the University of Miami. It was an easy 10 minute walk which I appreciated. Room was clean & staff were helpful. The free wi-fi, however was frustrating and the printed instructions provided were not adequate. The front desk staff were helpful in providing assistance but the system instructions should have included all the...

Love the availability of the area, the central location to several meetings I had to attend. Holiday Inn is just minutes from my office, and not far from downtown Miami - for sightseeing and enjoying the beauty of the downtown area.

We stayed here for 2 days having just found it while needing 2 rooms. It is a nice hotel. It is clean and staff friendly. If you have a car it is $10 a night which is a cheek. It should be free. But if you sign up with your email they will not charge you. The price charged does...

Dear 999eddie, I am pleased to know that you lived a great experience and the hotel cleanliness and friendly staff charmed you.

Overall, a nice hotel - not luxurious by any means but a good value for the money. The staff is courteous; we especially found, Liz, at the front desk to be very helpful. The bartender and wait staff in the restaurant/lounge were always friendly. The rooms could use a bit of an update, and the bathrooms are very small, but...

Actual rating is 3.6 stars, but rounded to 4 stars because Trip Advisor does not yet accept star ratings in one-tenth (i.e., 0.1) decimal increments. Overall, a pretty good hotel, and I had a pretty good stay, but with a few odd minor bumps, two of them connected with the restaurant. This review is for my 9-day stay at this...

We stayed at this hotel so we could attend the mango fest at Fairchild Botanical Garden. The location is perfect for any activity in downtown miami as its close enough to it but wont cost you the downtown hotel prices. The area has many restaurants to offer. And its less busy than the downtown area. The room was comfortable and...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Coral Gables for my son's college visit to the University of Miami. I was disappointed with the cleanliness of the hotel overall.
