When in Miami on business, I have been staying at the Intercontinental. I am a seasoned and veteran traveler and know that every pale has its good and bad aspects. Intercontinental's good aspects are its convenient location for business and its comfortable rooms with terrific views. The hotel staff is good, although the delays for check in and check out could be managed better.
The restaurants are not too dazzling. Breakfast is the best meal, but when breakfast is the best meal that should tell you something. Plus, there is a Toro Toro bar. It is common knowledge the best thing to do is to have a drink (or drinks?) at the hotel bar before dining elsewhere and then come back for after dinner drinks before retiring for the evening.
If you are lucky enough to have Alina (I think I have the spelling right) as your server, you are in for a perfectly made cocktail from a mixologist who exudes consummate professionalism. We had a large (and at times loud) party and she acted with grace under pressure. The drinks were great and she even made suggestions for some of the ladies in our party that went over very well.
I highly recommend Toro Toro as the place to start and end the night in Miami!
