I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Denver earlier this year which was outstanding. So when I got this hotel for $100 a night on Priceline I thought I lucked out. Well, here's the positives and negatives.
Positives: Good central downtown Miami location for business. Very accomodating staff. Decent bedding. Connected to convention center.
Negatives: Not an "ultra modern" hotel as noted on web site or TripAdvisor. More like putting a bandaid on 80's decor. Had to have room service come back up to my room to vacuum carpet when I checked in as it looked like no one did that originally while cleaning the room. A couple of hairs in the bathtub and a few crumbs on the desk chair. I'm not squeamish but more effort should have been given here. Really, especially for a Hyatt Regency. Restaurant food was ok, but again, the only restaurant looked like your typical "breakfast" dining room in other mid-level hotels.
The staff was trying very hard and was very sweet, but I wouldn't stay here again. Glad it was only one night and $100.
For a fabulous, albeit more pricey, alternative, try the Epic boutique hotel next door. Just opened in late 2008. Wow. Gorgeous. Even if you can't afford to stay there, go to the 16th floor restaurant/lounge area for dinner and/or drinks and watch the sun go down through the high rises and over the intercoastal.
