With the good rate we got, we were not expecting much, but were pleasantly surprised at how nice it actually was. Most of the staff was great. Weekend maid service left a lot to be desired. Overall would highly recommend.

We ate at the restaurant in the hotel and the staff that was working was amazing. our server Charles was really nice and on point with everything. The manager Chris Stachowski was on top of everything and it didn't matter how busy he was, we always saw him stop and help out anyone that needed something. Its great to see... More

Although we weren't staying at this hotel, the rooftop restaurant has a hidden gem. Chef Chris Stachowski. The food he created was even better than the view. He went out of his way to create some of the best food we had eaten during our two week vacation in South Florida. The fish was outstanding as well as the other... More

This March 2012 was my 4th year at the El Palacio. The location is great. Close to discount stores, Sun Life Stadium and the Race -Casino. Beautiful rooms, comfortable beds, and average continental breakfast. Courteous personnel and very helpful. I am already making plans to stay there again this year and next year.

There is only one person at check in. The double rooms are full size beds, the pillows are thin. Don't count on the free breakfast, there is only two tables that seat two people when they have a larger eating area on the 9 th floor. The restaurant is expensive has only a few selections that are 9.99 and up!!!... More

I have stayed at El Palacio for the past 6 years when I go down to attend the annual "Jazz In The Gardens" Concert. I have also suggested friends and associates stay there as I always find the environment safe: the hotel staff - professional, courteous, and knowledgable; and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I truly appreciate their efforts... More

We met friends at El Palacio. With adjoining rooms, we could open doors between them and chat. The balconies are great overlooking Calder Race Track and Casino. The staff is great. They are friendly helpful and attentive as needed. I also like the secure parking lot. We enjoyed our weekend and will return in a couple of months.

We stayed at the El Palacio while attending the 2012 Orange Bowl (Let's Go Mountaineers!). This was an excellent choice due to the proximity to Sun Life Stadium. Our room was clean and the front desk employees were excellent. They provided us with information about restaurants in the area as well as helping us choose which beach to visit on... More

My wife and I flew down on 1/3 for the Orange Bowl this year. We arrived at the hotel around 10am and they already had our room ready. Transportation to/from the airport was arranged through their recommended shuttle service and did a great job. We stayed in a poolside jacuzzi room. Unfortunately, it was a bit cold outside so we...
