I was looking for a nice, comfortable, and affordable hotel in Miami for a business trip. Although my company pays for my stay, I never like to choose a hotel that's too pricey. As I began my search, hotel rooms in the area were going for a premium and availability was surprisingly not good. As it turned out, the couple nights I stayed just happened to be when the X Factor was filming in Miami.
I really had planned to stay on South Beach since that is where my meeting was, but the cost was prohibitive. I expanded my search and found this Hampton Inn which had a reasonable rate so I booked the room. What a great decision!
Besides being comfortable and clean, it's really in a great location. It was a short drive over to South Beach each morning, and since I seemed to be moving against traffic, it was much faster than I expected.
It was also within walking distance of a few restaurants so I didn't need to drive anywhere for dinner which is a big plus for me. I felt perfectly safe walking in the area.
Parking is free; however, the lot on the street level is a little tight on space. With a small rental car, it wasn't a big deal, but a larger vehicle might have some difficulty backing out. There are also spaces below the street level, but I never had to park down there.
Overall, I would definitely stay at this property again.
