Cutler Bay, Florida1 contribution
Excellent service, very clean and friendly atmosphere. they were very helpful with anything we needed. The room and washroom was spotless. It is a beautiful hotel, very comfortable and just my style. There was nothing I didn't like. People at the front desk were always very helpful and very kind. The people on the valet side were very special and friendly.

1)Vending machine only takes credit cards. It had in the past taken cash with no problems. 2) after putting out my breakfast order form on the door Before 11:00PM, no one ever came by to pick it up. No breakfast or COFFEE for me in the AM. 3) Put the Coffee Makers back in the rooms!

My stay at the Graduate Providence was excellent except that our room was boiling hot (75-76 degrees the entire time we were there). We were told when we checked in that if we were too hot we should turn off the thermostat and open a window. We did that, but the window could only be opened a couple of inches, not nearly enough to actually cool the room. Sleeping (and generally being in the room) was pretty unpleasant as a result.

I am very impressed with your finished product. You did a lot to maintain the old charm of the Biltmore. I was a bit skeptical that it would be possible to maintain the charm of the old hotel, but you did a great job Thank you

We all loved the newly remodeled hotel. A huge upgrade from the previous years as the Biltmore. Valet service was on point. Looking forward to the new sports bar in conjunction with Top Golf opening this summer.
