“PERFECT LOCATION”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Used this hotel before going on a cruise.The hotel is very nice and close to the cruise port.The rooms is small but confortable.
The location is perfect, very close to BAYSIDE MARKETPLACE. It's a nice place with a lot of shops and restaurants and the start of the HOP ON-HOP OFF buses to see Miami and also the staring point for the bouts who taks you araound the harbor of Miami.
Close by is also the monorailtrain who taks you around Miami for freee.

Room Tip: The rooms on the backside is quiter but just a parking lot to see.

This Holiday Inn is an excellent location for cruisers or anyone without a car in downtown Miami. It's right across the street from the big Bayside Market and very close the AA arena where the Heat play. I highly recommend the "Hop on Hop off" Miami bus tours (90 mins each) that use the doubledecker buses and the central station is right across from this Holiday Inn. The rooms in the hotel were nice and the view of the harbor to the east is spectacular from the upper floors. Beware that you'll be charged for parking if used, so be sure to look out front in the first-come-first-served free city parking. I probably would have given this place a 5 rating had the breakfast been better (limited options) and the front desk service was average.

Room Tip: Request an upper floor with an East view (worth the trip and cost just for the view). Also, exhaust...

It's location is really the best, it's right accross the street from a great market and waterfront mall. I thought the price was a little steep but still the location was perfect, it was clean, polite staff. I would recommend taking advantage of the neighbouring restaurants right accross the road, or on the waterfront, we had dinner in the hotel, it was just so so. We had breakfast there too and it was very good.

We stayed just one night as we're dealers at the Miami Beach Antique show this week. I just needed 1 night as the rest of the week was going to be at the Holiday Inn on Miami Beach with my points since I'm a Platinum member.
We arrived with our U-Haul van & the parking lot behind the hotel was full. Only holds approx. 44 spaces - HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE! They are currently in talks with the owner of the massive parking lot immediately behind theirs to buy out. So that would increase to least a few hundred parking spots. Please pass this info onto your friends since this is a major cruise port hotel.

We wound up parking about 1/2 block down (about 50 feet) at the public place for $15 for overnight. I think it was cheap compared to what you'd pay in other big cities. The lot was safe & was manned 24/7. Now if I was willing to park there with over $50k in expensive porcelain merchandise, you tourists should have no worries at all.

We checked in, was given recognition as Platinum members & given room 511. That overlooks the street facing towards the cruise ports. Didn't care too much, I've been down here before, but still a nice view. Room was huge, it was a king suite & very clean. No issues with the room, just the Asian women in connecting room 510 who thought it was OK to have their baby scream for 2 hours in hunger & finally feed him/her at midnight. The baby was quiet after that & so were they.

Dinner was great, it had alot of choices & the staff I would stay treated you like Elite customers. Every person was attentive & professional & several different staff members kinda served you. This restaurant staff beats the more casual staff at the HI on Miami Beach. We had a free breakfast since that's what given to us upon check-in. We did the buffet before heading out to the Convention Center to setup.

Room Tip: High Floor facing cruise ship port

This is my second stay at this hotel! The staff was very helpful. The rooms are nice but less decorated. And also clean. Back in Miami I will stay at the Holiday Inn, because of the location in Miami downtown and across Bayside (HARBOUR) I found the American Breakfast a little bit poor.

Room Tip: "Rooms on the BACK side are quieter"

I stayed here recently purely based on that it was the cheapest non-flea bag hotel with free internet in downtown Miami. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms, decor and whatnot are pretty standard, nothing to get excited about but fine. I was given a room on the tenth floor that had a great view of the port and further on the Miami Beach area. It was walking distance (10 minutes) to the Metrorail stop at Government Center stop, that will get you out to the airport for $2/person in half an hour. Across hte street there is some touristy shopping, and out front you can grab a bus to South Beach for $2 (takes half an hour). All in all I thought it was great value for the money. Most of the people staying there are going to a cruise or coming back. Some commenters mention noise from construction; I suffered no such inconvenience.

the hotel is in a great position but is in desperate need of refurbishment and was very run down (everywhere and in all respects). Reception staff were not friendly but the concierge was always very helpful. The bed was comfortable, room clean but the sliding door to the "wardrobe" (if you could call it that) was totally off the hinges and swayed every time it was moved. Air conditioning was extremely loud as was the ice machine in the hallway. Very expensive rates for such a disappointing hotel.

Dear DeniseB1170,

I would like to thank you for your review and apologize that your experience with our hotel did not meet your expectations.

I greatly appreciate you calling out the cleanliness of our rooms and comfortable bed. While I am pleased with the good comments, I truly value the not so good comments as this gives us the opportunity of improving what we already do. We will address these points and I hope that when you return you will see the improvements that have been made.

Thank you again for your review. I hope we have the opportunity in the future to provide you with a better experience.

Regards,
Brenda J.
