I had the pleasure of at this hotel the weekend of 11/22/11. The hotel is located in Biscayne Bay close to the Port of Miami. I flew into FLL airport took the Go Shuttle which cost $21 to the hotel. The Hotel is beyond beautiful. Very comtemporary look, A lot of thought was put into outfitting this hotel with pieces (sofas, artwork, vases, etc) which displayed its welcoming vibe. The hoel was also beautifully decorated for for holidays with pops of purple and grey. The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating. The room were very spacious with huge bay windows.
The Hotel was located across from the Bayfront Park which had lots of shopping, restaurants, outside entertainment(jazz singers, congo players) and you could also take dinner/party cruises nightly. You also have additional shops and restaurants on the neighboring streets. The hotel restaurants may be a bit pricey but you have access to tons of choices steps from your front door.
Another plus there was free light rail system within 1 block of the hotel. There were local buses and cabs galore if you wanted other modes of transporation. Also several parking garages. Note take a cab from here to south Beach will costs you $17.50
All in all if you decide to stay here you are making a terrific choice.
I have included pics to show just how faboosh this hotel is.
