Pretty poor in most areas. Hotel was in lovely area and has great views........ Buuuuuut- the hotel is very dated both in main areas and the rooms. The room was sparse and very unwelcoming. The bathroom is in desperate need of an update- also a good scrub; there was mould all over the shower/bath and faeces on the outside of... More

Booked a suite for one night and was pleasantly surprised. It was beautiful with white marble floor and both an oceanfront view and bay view. The beds were very comfortable, and the room was very clean. We got a special rate online, my only regret was that we didnt book a second night. The only drawback was that it was... More

At first you will feel like you just arrived to a very luxurious place thanks to the valet paking and all the chandeliers in the entrance hall, you might get dissapointed quite fast, right after entering your room. Some say theirs were nice and modern, which was not our case. Stayed in the "Bay" corridor in one of the suites.... More

Never get it! It was the worst hotel that we got in our trip in Miami. It was like horror movie. The hotel structure is the horrible as possible, the elevator isn't simple to use and there isn't accessibility for the luggage or wheelchair, you (yes, you, because no one goes take the luggage for you) have to carry the...

We were incredibly satisfied with the room. It was just like in the photos. Modern and clean and plenty of room. The valet service at the hotel came in handy, although at times it was a bit of a line. Although most of the action was south or north of us, we enjoyed the vicinity.

Well not sure where to begin! Upon approach we were so excited and ready to complete our 9 day vacation run!!! Even the lobby was on point.
