I traveled with my parents, younger sister, and grandparents, booking two rooms for a pre-cruise 5 day stay. When we stayed at the hotel, they were in the middle of renovating, so some rooms had the fresh 'paint-smell' to them. However, when asked, the front desk was willing to give us new rooms, trying to accommodate any requests we had. Some parts of the room, the sections 'less-travelled' were somewhat dusty, though.
The location was fine if you had a car, as the only restaurant within walking distance was Bennigan's. The enterprise we rented from was just down the street which was very convenient for renting and returning the car (about 10 to 15 mins walk). The airport shuttle also proved very handy, as they were also willing to drive us to the enterprise to pick up the car on our first day (before we knew it was so close). The cruise shuttle was also very convenient, and very friendly when dropping us off. The driver of both shuttles, (which was actually the same bus) Dave, was very nice.
The continental breakfast was average, with the usual selection of hard-boiled eggs, cereal, toast & bagels, some fruit, etc. and a self-serve waffle maker. They closed the breakfast at pretty much exactly the time they post, though, so don't be late!! =)
The parking was alright, we managed to find an ok spot every day, sometimes going in the back door, and the wifi worked without any hassle as well. Our room also had a view of the pool, which we didn't use, but looked alright.
All in all, the hotel was pretty good. If I went to Miami again, it would definitely be one of my top choices!
P.S. When visiting Miami, remember to go to Joe's Stone Crab!!
