This hotel is in a more secluded area and it's pretty quiet around the hotel itself. Within about a 15 min walk is a wonderful downtown area with a lot of nightlife and good restaurants! We were staying at this hotel for one night before a cruise. We chose this hotel because we wanted to visit Viscaya and this hotel is very close, I think our cab ride was about $10 one way in light traffic.
Even with using my points for this stay, we were upgraded to a beautiful suite with two balconies, a huge living room and even a walk-in closet! (see photos) I wished we had more time to spend here! Our view of Miami was really nice and all the front desk clerks were very helpful with storing our luggage when we arrived before check-in. The pool area was very nice as well! I would stay in this hotel again, and choose it over the downtown Miami hotels for the serenity in the area.More
