4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Nice rooms, huge beds, big TV. There is a iron and a board.
I had a personal issue with a group booking - I was the only one from the group who was not provided executive lounge and no breakfast included, although booked. This can happen, but when I tried to solve the problem - noone could help. I hardly managed to get myself breakfast, but no room switch, no excuses, no money back or any other compensation. What's worse - they did not really wanted to listen, instead kept telling me that this was the way I booked, despite I kept telling them it was all the same booking.
Housekeeping could not speak english, so it was a problem a few times.
Almost missed the airport shuttle (which is free, every 30 minutes), becasue bell boy forgot to call for it.
Breakfast is poor and you need to ask for a voucher from receptions if it's included in your stay. Otherwise pay in the restaurant.
Location is good if you are on transit or visit events at near-by conventional center. Otherwise, it's 30-40 USD by taxi to the dountown or Miami beach. Or you can go by bus - the stop is 10-15 walking distance. The bus is just 2.25, but it stops every 100 meters, so the trip douwntown will take you more then 1 hour instead of 20 minutes by taxi.

Everything from start to finish was terrible, if you don't speak spanish at this hotel they will treat you awful. The restaurant was priced way too high and the food was terrible. I would never stay at this hotel again.

Okay, most of my stay was fine but what was wrong, was very wrong! On the positive side, I found the bellman very helpful with getting my materials for the conference - Robert was exceptional and went out of his way to be helpful. But my overall experience was overshadowed by my bed being short-sheeted! I soon realized that the sheet only went down about 3/4 of the way to the foot of the bed, leaving my feet exposed to the top comforter, as was all the guests before me. I tried re-making the bed, but that only meant the sheet was too short at the top. Further, the layout of the bathroom was problematic. The bathroom door nearly hit the toilet and made using it difficult.

The front desk staff are horrible and the valet parking staff is worse. The hallways outside of the rooms smell of mold and are very dimly lit.The rooms are very dated, with terrible lighting, inefficient AC and a very old television system (which still sells a 15+ year old video game system). Be ready to pay for parking, its $7 overnight as a guest, no exceptions. The parking lot is dimly lit. The hotel sells its adjacent "shopping center" as a mall, but it's full of nothing, just a collection of cheap stores selling overpriced faux jewelry, knockoff apparel and luggage.

Their website shows pictures of a gym with a basketball court, part of why I chose them to stay in, but their gym's weight set is missing pieces and their basketball court is extremely narrow. Their gym are also shows signs of dilapidation, I noticed an open ceiling panel exposing a leaky pipe, dripping water into a bucket in the middle of the hallway.

Their breakfast isn't all that great, and too expensive for the quality. Their restaurant's dinner is average quality and overpriced.

They give each guest a cookie which tastes like it was stored for 2 years.

This was my first time staying here and it will be my last.

Room Tip: Stay away from the elevator, too noisy.

The shuttle bus brought me from the airport to the hotel. I was very tired and hungry upon checking in. To my surprise the desk clerk handed me two warm and moist gourmet cookies. What a perfect treat to tide me over until I could have dinner in the restaurant. The hotel was very nice, clean, modern and attractive. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The room was very comfortable with complimentary Internet & wifi. The bed was firm, but plush. The restaurant food was great. I had a perfect stay.

Someone was locked in the bathroom twice - staff told her to bring her cell into the bathroom. Haha. They would not let me park in front and check into my room. I had to pay for parking and haul my from the back of the parking lot since I was not paying for valet. Do not remember what was so dirty in the room. Our floor had nasty cigar and cigarette smell in the hall which permeated into the room. Many people notified the hotel but they apologized but did not try to find the culprit. The second night was very noisy.
