“Free Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

The property is nice, good location and is in good shape. The hotel offers free breakfast everyday and free dinner Mon-Thu. The food is most likely precooked and packaged but the "chefs" go the extra mile to add certain things to the food to make it better. You will not go hungry here.

The negative aspect of the trip was that I did not get the room I reserved. I reserved a one bedroom suite and ended up with a studio type room. The rooms have a nice kitchenette but no oven. The beds are comfortable and TV is decent size. This hotel is right in the flight path for MIA airport but I never heard a single plane fly over.

Room Tip: I was on the 5th floor and although it was quiet this hotel has the slowest elevator in Miami. Chose...

I stayed at Hilton Garden Inn, Miami for a business trip. It's a nicely built hotel with good service and close proximity to the airport and business centers. Shopping is also not far away with Dolphin mall near to the hotel..... great place to shop.....you may want to take help from the front desk for nearby attractions (not many for a city like Miami though)
Nicely kept jacuzzi & pool are added advantage.... try the warm chocolate cookies at the reception, they are nice after a swimming session....
Shuttle service to/from airport is useful, and if you're lucky, you may get dropped /picked from some shopping malls near by as well :)
Good hotel if you have to stay near airport for some reason....

Room Tip: room overlooking swimming pool gives better view.....

We are long time Hilton Honors members and know what to expect. This hotel did not meet these expectations. The reception was friendly enough. The room, however, an allegedly non-smoking room, stank of cigarette smoke--as soon as the annoying air freshener odor dissipated. The a/c was loud enough to (almost) be mistaken for an airplane taking off at the airport next door. The bathroom floor was filthy. The food at the grill downstairs was quite good, even though we had to look at numerous dirty dishes that had been left at adjacent tables. Hilton can do better.

We arrived late at the airport, we called for the shuttle service at 11:30pm and the staff told us the wait was less the 15 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised of the prompt response. After we identified the terminal we were waiting, I was not clear to us where the pick up was within the terminal. We missed the shuttle as we were waiting at the wrong spot. After we called again, we finally agree at a pick up point within the terminal and was picked up after another 15 minute wait. Once we arrived at the property, we were quickly checked in and was upgraded to a suite. We used the breakfast facility which was fantastic. The only complaint is the tight spaces between tables in the breakfast area which can cause some interesting twisting around navigating around.

The hotel is nice enough for and airport hotel. The room was clean although the bathroom showed its age.
Service was awful. At breakfast I asked for a to go container and it took 3 servers before I got someone who didn't just ignore me. Although none of them really spoke English so it's possible they just didn't understand what I was asking for.
The night before an early flight I asked the front desk about the airport shuttle and the woman told me to just come down when I was ready. In the morning I came down at 605 and was told the shuttle only ran on the half hour and I would have to wait until 630. That would have been fine if I had been given that info when I asked about the shuttle.
Next time Ill probably stay at the Homewood Suites one building over. My coworkers said it was great and it was cheaper too.

We arrived at the hotel in the evening around 7:30 pm after travelling all day, and were very impressed to find a sparkling clean, pleasantly decorated lobby, a reasonably spacious clean room, and much to our delight, a nice restaurant with good food and selection, since we were famished! We really didn't want to get back in a cab and go out of the hotel to search for a restaurant so this worked for us!
The restaurant staff went out of their way to be helpful, including offering me wonderful steamed milk with my tea the next morning - unprompted.
Front desk staff were helpful also.
It was cool that they have a few shuttles for different things - we found the shuttle to the Wal-Mart (less than 10 minutes drive) handy, since we were going on a cruise from the Port of Miami. At Wal-Mart we were able to grab our supplies for the cruise, such as sunscreen and bottled water, wine etc. We only took the shuttle one way (on the way back) to meet our needs.
Hope this helps!

The outstanding part of this hotel is the staff. They were very helpful in accommodating my family with a room that worked for 5 and the convenience of the restaurant and bar (not to mention that most of the food we had there was quite good) was great. We stayed before and after a cruise and found the hotel/airport (free), hotel/port (adults $12; kids $6) and hotel/Dolphin Mall (free) shuttles to be helpful (just wish we'd known about the free Dolphin Mall shuttle when we first arrived!). The rooms (at least, the ones we stayed in) are a bit worn down, but they are clean and the beds comfortable. This is a very good value for the $$, would definitely stay here again!
