Over the last 15 years, I have gone through streaks where this has been a 'go to' hotel on business trips to Miami. It is affordable, could be described as charming, and has perfect location in Downtown Coral Gables (just to west of Miami).
I had not stayed there in several years, and decided to give it a try. Wow, what a difference 3-4 years makes...NONE! While it is charming, and like stepping back in time, it really needs an update, something I think they could do and retain the charm. A small but telling example is that the elevator is old enough to still require an operator.
All that having been said, there is a great deal to like about the hotel. It is clean, free wifi, has a new restaurant in the lobby, and an endearing character to it that is difficult to find in North American Hotels. If it were in Paris, people would rave about it, especially given that its prices are reasonable.
Worth a try for a night or two.
