It was our first time here. When I booked the room I asked for an upgrade, to have a bay view, and I was not disappointed. The room was big, with a sofa and a table. Also, every time we came back late afternoon, our room had already been cleaned: housekeeping did a great job. The only annoying part was the sound of the elevator, as our room was closed to it and the a/c that sometimes turned off on a save mode (otherwise it was too loud). A thing that was missing was the minibar, which would be great to have, to store some beverages.
Even if it is in downtown, the hotel is in a very good location, also to explore Miami beach: just 1 block from the bus station, 1 block from a supermarket, 10-mins-bus ride from Bayside with shops, nightlife and entertainment. During a raining day you can also take the Dolphin Mall shuttle that picks you up at the hotel and brings you there directly.
Concierge staff was very nice and helpful: they let us sit and explain us all the possibilities we have during our 4 days. We decided to have the city tour with the boat tour of Star Island (the latter I really enjoyed!) which took 5 hours and fill one of our days.
We also spent some time in the pool, playing chess and chilling. The pool is outdoor, the area is not very big but never crowed. The bar in the lobby was a nice option for a drink or for a quick breakfast (they offer Starbuck’s). Internet is also complimentary in the common areas, but I don’t understand why it was working only some days and not with one of our phones.
All in all, we enjoy staying at this hotel and I would recommend it.
