I stayed in the hotel during a conference - which also took place there. The hotel is located in Downtown Miami, at the water and close to the Bayside Park, amongst other tall buildings (mainly offices and condos). Unfortunately, my room had a view of one of these buildings - you could see the bay only partially. The room was spacious - with a big bed, a small sofa at the window, a desk, a big TV, and a very big bathroom. It was very clean (I have HIGH standards for that). The only thing is that the towels were changed daily - even though I was more than happy to reuse them and I did not leave them on the floor.
The staff was very friendly and helfpul - except for one receptionist who either had a bad day or did not like her job. She wrote the wi-fi access code in an illegible way and was rather rude, when I asked what digit it was. But it was a single case of unfriendliness.
I enjoyed the swimming pool a lot - it was never too busy and it has a great view over the bay. The restaurant at the pool has a very good pizza too!
The only annoying thing I encountered during my stay: I turned off the airco for the night but there was still a weird buzzing noise in my room from time to time. No idea what it was.
Tip: go for a run or a walk alongside the water - when you leave the hotel, turn right and then right again. A very nice running path.
