“A nostalgic favorite, but just short of 5-star”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Strengths: nearly unparalleled beauty, 5-star hospitality from staff that knows how to pamper guests, and a pool area that is one of the most beautiful in America.

Weakness: they gym is not in keeping with the splendor of the pool area; my room -- although beautiful, elegant, and sumptuous -- had a light musty smell that is common in an historic, 100-year old building; and little things (like old electric plugs were so loose that my computer charger kept falling out) kept me from giving a 5-star overall rating.

Would I stay again? Yes. In spite of the weaknesses, I would stay again, simply because it is so beautiful, the bed so comfortable, and the staff seems to treat every guest like a distinguished VIP.

My wife and I were visitng some family on vacation and chose to stay here, the place has an amazing luxurious feel to it. Our rooom was so comofortable, the bed was a the most comfortable bed I ever slept on. The location is perfect. This place is very historic, and has a very interesting history behind it. I experienced a somewhat eerie feeling in the lobby. But overall our trip was fun and this hotel made it so much better. Definitely concider staying here id you are visiting the general Miami/Gables area.

We travelled with a young child (7 years-old) and stayed at a junior suite, on 4th floor. I payed for a '4th night free' package. So we spent 3 nights and waited for our 10pm flight at the room. The historic building is an attraction itself. The pool is amazing. And the staff was great, helping us with all our needs. As said on other reports, there was a wedding happenning on saturday. It made some noise, but not enough to disturb. Our suite was clean and the beds, very confortable. The bathroom could be bigger, but we don't have anything to complain. Definitily, it worth what we payed.

Room Tip: If you are not sure about choosing a junior suite, don't think more. It's not so much expens...

Beautiful, historic, immaculately maintained, stunning pool, wonderful service (although sometimes a bit too talky). Stayed in a junior suite on the seventh floor facing the pool and the view was extraordinary. Be prepared for some weekend wedding noise. The remedy: We put on white noise via a website on our laptop to drown it out and slept like rocks. Before figuring that out, we complained to the front desk and that was the only time during our stay that a staff member was slightly rude. I can't take any stars away for that though. This place is a haven. During the week, it was super quiet. I would go back and stay even longer. I met one guest who had been there three months!

Room Tip: Junior suites on the seventh floor facing the pool have stunning views.

I stayed two nights in a Junior suite over the 4th of July Holiday. I was staying here as part of a wedding.

The hotel is very grand and located a few miles off US 1 in Coral Gables. There is not much around the hotel, just homes and neighborhoods. We parked in the self-parking lot which is included in your daily resort fee. There was the option to valet for $25.00 a night.

Check in was easy and I was off to my room very quickly. The room was a 2 room suite; 1 a living room with chairs and couches and a large screen TV. Large bathroom with double vanity’s and the second room was the bed room on a corner with 2 window views. There was also a walk in closet. The room was quiet and comfortable. Each night they offered turn down service.

The wedding was hosted at the Biltmore so many of our meals were provided by the function. However we ate breakfast each morning at the resort. Cascades is located near the pool and offers more casual food. The Fontana was another restaurant I ate at which was more expensive (38 for 1 person). Each service bill includes a tip regardless of # in your party so be aware.

The hotel has an excellent spa and gym. The pool area is also amazing and world famous. There is not as much pool deck area as I thought, so get their early if you want a chair for the day. The only issue I had was the cost of drinks and food. I understand hotels inflate their prices but I felt this location was a bit high even from more higher end brands. $70 for 4 bar drinks at the pool (for example).

Overall the 2 days was excellent, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. While the hotel is not as modern as I like it still was a gem. So much history (walk through any of the halls look at the pictures and read about the history) and so much old age elegance.
