“The place to stay in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We recently were about to cruise out of Miami and arrived a day early, like usual. We choose the Miami Airport Homewood Suites, mainly because if was one of the few hotels available at a price that would break the bank. We couldn't have made a better choice. The rooms were clean, spacious and complete with full kitchen, the bed was comfortable, service outstanding and on Monday thru Thursday a light, but substantial dinner, complete with beer and wine is served. Every morning a hot breakfast is available. The drawback might be no restaurant on the grounds so you need to hop in a car or walk over to one of the nearby places if you are not preparing you own meal or dinner isn't served that night. I would recommend the Homewood suites for a one night stay or a longer one because of the kitchen facilities, as well as the friendly staff and good location. There are several hotels within walking distance that offer full restaurant service, and the airport is just a few miles away, with shuttle service back and forth.

Room Tip: We were at the very end of the hall, overlooking the pool area. It was quiet and for us, the best lo...

We were there for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay here. Will definitely like to stay here again. Enjoyed eating breakfast by the side of water. Hotel staff was helpful. Very close to Airport. Shuttle service was good too.

We stayed here one night pre-cruise in December. The front desk is very friendly and helpful. It felt as if there was no air conditioning in the hallways which left you feeling sticky. The elevators were very slow and made odd noises that made you nervous. The room was large in size which was nice - however they smelled somewhat smokey. It may have been previous occupants, or maybe cleaning solutions and air fresheners - not sure but it had an odd odor. The room was clean- and the bathroom area was nice that the toilet and bathtub were separate from the sink area, and also the bedroom- nice layout for our family. There was a ceiling fan and tv in the bedroom - and a tv in the living area as well. Plenty of seating, a table and clean well equipped kitchen area. We ate breakfast at the buffet - what a nightmare ! It was on a Saturday, and full of families getting ready to go on cruises, so take that into consideration. The buffet area is just not equipped or laid out to handle the business it saw on this Saturday morning. Food was all over the floor, you couldn't get to the coffee, the cook couldn't cook the food fast enough, etc- just bad all the way around. I'm guessing during the week it is just fine - just not where you want to be on a Saturday morning. I would stay here again during the week only, and hope my room didn't smell like smoke.

I tried to extend my stay here for 10 days starting the 26 of Dec. I was told that my room rate would go up $100.00 a day. Asked to have the manager contact me. Shortly after I returned to my room the front desk called and told me not to worry about it that there was no longer any rooms available.....

Great 2 bedroom suite with 2 bathrooms. Everything in our stay was wonderful. The breakfast was good, room were very spacious; easy to access business center. Park on the left side of the building in order to access the elevator near the parking lot. Very convenient to the Miami International Airport and it has shuttle service. Staff was helpful and pleasant. Rooms were very clean and very spacious.

Only stopped on an overnight before joining a cruise.We were very surprised by the size of the rooms.The lounge area had two sofa and a large flatscreen TV. The kitchen area was very well equipped, The bathroom had a seperate area with double washbasin, and the bedroom was of a good size with large wardrobe space and a good sized TV.
All areas were very clean and in good decorative order.
The Suites are situated quite near to the airport but we had no problem with noise, and the view across the lake to the airport was great .
On the downside there was no restaurant in the building(although they do provide an excellent buffet breakfast free of charge).
We had pre booked a restaurant not far from the Homewood and reception said it was safe to walk there(about 15mins). However it was raining very heavily so we asked if they could ring a taxi for us.Instead they took us (and picked us up afterwards) in the hotels courtesy bus which we thought was a very nice gesture.
Overall, you are a bit of a way out of the tourist parts of Miami, but if you have transport the Homewood Suites would make a very good base for a city stay.

Room Tip: Our room at the front had little noise disturbance from the airport during the night, but other gues...

I love Homewood Suites but this one disappointed me a little. Check in went smoothly with the friendly guy at the front desk. The room was clean. Refrigerator not even cold. Remote control for TV missing and had to go looking for it, found it under the end table. The shower was dripping and the faucet very hot to the touch which was weird. These are all little things but not something I usually run into at Homewood. And what's with hotels not having the a/c on in the hallways? Very warm. Saving money I guess. But then we got downstairs to the breakfast area and it was also very warm. OMG people, it's Miami, we need air conditioning!
