“Post cruise stay”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Having read reviews prior to booking this hotel; yes, the elevators, hotel room and bathroom were small, but, were clean and comfortable. Also, since our stay was "post cruise," the size of our accommodations was a "non-issue." The bed was incredibly comfortable, complimentary morning coffee/tea was available downstairs, and there was free WI-Fi throughout the hotel. The lobby and staff do get very busy during "check-in and check-out" times, but, the staff and general manager were always courteous, helpful, and accommodating. They stored our luggage for us, printed documents for us, and secured us transportation to the airport. The location was fantastic. Close to the cruise ship terminal, Bayside Market (shopping & dining), tour buses, and the city's free above ground transportation. CVS, Marshalls, Ross, Seven/Eleven; are some of the nearby stores. Some of the rooms have awesome views overlooking the city and water, which only enhances the hotel's location. We would definitely stay again!

b2 was a hotel located right across the pier and very near the metro. The hotel smelled clean, and the staff was friendly. I even got to check into my room early! The toilet area is a bit small, but beds were comfortable and nice large window with a great view from the 10th floor.

Rooms and service nice, restaurant good, big breakfast even of not included in the price.
One BIG issue: only two small elevators for 16 floors... At the check out we had (like many other guests) to wait for over an hour for the elevator to arrive and more than half an hour for the checkout..

Room Tip: If possible chose and external room..

We stayed here the night before our cruise. Had a great 7th floor room with view of the Port. It was pretty exciting to wake up and see our ship out there waiting for us. The staff was excellent.
There is a CVS right acrosss the street for your last minute needs.

We booked via priceline. Wouldn't have wanted to spend full price.
Rooms are small but sufficient. Elevators are slow and Saturday mornings are impossible with everyone leaving. We walked our bags down 7 flights.

To summarize:
The location was perfect, the room was very clean, the staff great, The elevators slow.

Room Tip: Hotel elevators are Packed Saturday mornings. Plan your time accordingly.

Pre cruise stay, room was very nice just small, king size bed was good. Stayed there because Cruise terminal 5-10 minutes away by taxi.

We went down for breakfast in the Hotel's restaurant and was pleasantly surprised by the buffet, pricey but lots of fruit and veggies to go along with the usually bacon and eggs.

Good morning gumby_666666

And thank you for your review and compliments about the quality of our rooms and our service. I'm glad you enjoyed the breakfast buffet at our signature restaurant, the Biscayne Tavern. Being an international hot spot has resulted in the enhancement of our food and beverage offerings to ensure a wide range of palates is satisfied. It's great to hear from guests that this is of benefit to them.

I hope next time you come through Miami b2 will again B your place of choice. Until then, B well!

I booked this hotel based on the positive reviews and the pictures which made it seem like a boutique hotel. We were shocked at the state of the hotel and room. We were in room 401. The 4th floor smelt extremely musty, the walls are dirty, stained and scuffed up, and the carpet was torn up. The room was exceptionally small and the bathroom was the smallest bathroom I've seen in a hotel. The doors in the floor slam frequently and the noise level is loud/no noise proofing.

The white walls in the room were also scuffed and had black marks on it. The trim and parts of the wall had chunks of wood broken off. We turned down the bed and found a small bug on the sheets which I felt was a dead spider but nevertheless that affects your sleep and ability to relax. The following morning we tried to shower but when my bf turned the tap on the handle broke off so we couldn't shower.

I wouldn't stay here again and I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. Especially when they charge $299 a night.

Good morning Scorpio1983

I read your review and want to thank you for such honest and open feedback. I have put room 401 temporarily out of service to perform maintenance and bring it back to mint condition. I appreciate the fact you stayed with us and would hope you allow b2 miami an opportunity to change your opinion of the property.

If you so choose to, please contact me directly at the hotel.

Stayed here the night before our cruise. Arrived VERY late (midnight) to a very gracious staff who had mercifully held the last room in house for us. The room was far from luxurious, but the bed was great and loved the Aveda products. Street noise was a problem. Breakfast buffet the next morning was good. Luggage storage was efficient and friendly, allowing for a fun morning of shopping at Bayside which is right across the street. Once ready, our ship was a quick 5 minute shuttle away. This will be my pre-cruise go to from now on, no question!

Good morning RTRupp, and thank you very much for a great review of b2 miami downtown.

Indeed our location and facilities make of b2 the perfect pre-cruise place. I am glad our front desk team took great care of you. Travelling these days sometimes is not what we would hope for and it's great when the hotel team can foresee those challenges and make arrangements to take extra care of incoming guests.

I hope you cruise often, as we would like to see you B-ack soon!
