My wife and I stayed at the Sonesta Bayfront Hotel, Coconut Grove for a couple of nights at the end of a Florida holiday. Our room on the 16th floor was comfortable enough, but the sliding door to the balcony didn't lock properly and the curtains were frayed, which let the place down a little. We didn't know it when we booked, but the Coconut Grove Arts Festival was on over the weekend we were there and this is a massive event (c. 250 stalls I guess), with an excellent display of art, jewellery, glassware and pottery by exhibitors from all over the USA. The show kept us amused, which was lucky because there was no beach to speak of!
The best thing about the hotel was the restaurant; our waiter Humberto was great but the real star of the show is the restaurant manager Frank, who always seemd to be at work. He was friendly, welcoming, efficient and charming - he always had a smile on his face. Eat there and have some of the Peruvian themed food, which is superb.
