This old historic hotel is really a treat to stay at. It boasts updated rooms with really nice bathrooms. No coffee service in the room - but it doesn't take too long to go to the LL to get a cup in the bar. The pool is magnificient!
As with any high end hotel - food, drink and accompaniments are very expensive. Examples - water in the room $8. coffee $4; margarita $17; Sunday breakfast buffet $75 (but you can eat the same food at the 19th hole restaurant for $25- just not all you can eat - but I could not finish). Gratuities are already added to everything - including your room @ $20 per day; so if you tip - just be aware that it is on top of what has already been added to your bill.
If you can get past this - then you'll have a great stay at a great hotel!

Room Tip: Choose a room on a higher floor - lots of noisy wedding parties disturb lower floors

The pool is amazing. We get a jounior suite on 10th floor with view on the pool for less than 200 $ only asking the receptionist for a good room.

We had dinner at the fountaine restaurants, it is gut but very expensive

I just completed a two night stay at the biltmore.. A few positives.. Eddie, a waiter in the Fontana restaurant, was excellent, as was Erica, who serves poolside.. Carlos, one of the bellmen, was also fantastic. The woman who checked me out at 645 am this morning needs to be fired. Her attitude is unacceptable. The 18%gratuity added to every thing is tasteless. Even at the brunch -which is a buffey! Really, a mandatory 18% for pouring me coffee? Also, at checkout, i realized that the bag of m&ms i had from the mini bar was 19.99. Now mind you, there was no price list, and i assumed 5-7 dollars, but 19.99??? The rooms are old and tired..my bathroom door wouldnt shut unless i jammed the nightstand up agai.nst the bed, which incidentally, the housekeeper moved back into place each day... The entire experience was just lackluster, worth the exception on the few people I've called out. The moral of this one is that the hotel is still acting like it is a destination property that everyone is clamoring to be at, charging high prices for what really, is no better than what I'd imagine a holiday inn to be like.

The 18% gratuity is added on the check for the guest’s convenience and it is entirely at the guest’s discretion to either, increase, reduce or completely eliminate the amount of gratuity, depending on the perceived level of service received. This option is clearly stated on the guest’s check and has been received most positively by Biltmore patrons. Additionally, As a world-class luxury destination resort, the Biltmore enjoys a stellar reputation for professionalism, services and quality of product within the industry. We extend every effort possible to resolve guests' issues related to their hotel experience when these concerns are brought directly to our attention.

When ever me and my family go to Florida we ALWAYS make this our first and/or last stop on our holiday. I have been going to the Biltmore Hotel for over 12 years now and I am always happy when I leave. It is such a lovely relaxing hotel. Everything is taken of for you. Everyone is very attentive.

My husband used to live in Coral Gables, and we love the Biltmore! We were there to celebrate our birthdays and could not have had a better time. The staff was amazing and we had a beautiful tower suite on the 14th floor. We took a very early flight and were at MIA by 9am...since it was raining we asked for an early check in, which they gladly arranged on short notice.
They knew we were celebrating our birthdays and sent up a fruit platter, and then next day chocolate covered strawberries. The place is old but not in a bad way...it's so charming and just spotless. We enjoy looking at all of the old pictures of "The Gables". Ask at the desk for a little brochure about the history of the hotel!
The pool was recently updated and it could not be prettier! The food is always first rate. No matter how many times we've stayed there it's still our favorite place in the Miami area. Close enough to south beach, lincoln rd, etc but worlds apart!

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to ask about AAA or other discount programs. Tower suites are AMAZING!!!!

The Baltimore is a solid hotel. The staff is great and all the amenities rock. I recommend getting a pool cabana for the day. The only problem is that it's sort of isolated. I'm a city guy so I like to be able to walk to a different restaurant or sight see. At the biltmore you have take a pretty decent cab ride to get out of neighborhood. However the ground are impeccable and they have all sorts of spa and golf and other option to stay busy on property. I personally sit by the pool, sip the delicious mojitos ( acai mojitos the last time we were there) and eat off the pool menu!

We chose the Biltmore for the history and the fitness center and were pleasantly surprised by both. Guests of the hotel have access the the Biltmore Club's fitness center and fitness classes. We are members of 24 Hour Fitness and are used to high quality classes and the Biltmore exceeded our high expectations. Philip was our spin instructor for two days and while my wife and I have taken hundreds of classes, Philip's ranks among the very best. The exercise equipment is first class and hands down the best I've seen at any hotel.
The hotel itself is gorgeous and loaded with old-Florida history. It has had several lives, but the hotel has been brought back to its former glory-although some renovations remain ongoing. The pool is legendary for all the right reasons. The food choices, while pricey, are excellent. The rooms are updated and very comfortable. If you're traveling on a weekday do not miss high tea served in the beautiful hotel lobby. Lastly, have breakfast at the Cascade on the pool deck at least one morning. We chose to hit the gym, followed by a spin class, followed by a nice swim in the pool while we waited for breakfast.
