I stayed at the hotel twice in the month of June 2013 to catch overnight connections. The location is perfect, inside the Airport, in the area D.
It is a kind of "cold" hotel. Reception staff is ok, but not amazing. I asked how to get in town and the guy told me "only by taxi", showing not a big interest in giving me directions, as usually you would expect at a Hotel Reception.
I replied "are you sure"? Seems strange. I got same answer.
I later found out that it is possible to get a connection to the Metro (MIA Mobile) or to the Bus stop from where you can get a bus to Miami beach. The metro and the bus stop are in the same place.
Metro runs every 20/30 minutes in the evenings and weekends, be aware of that. I did not take the bus.
Overall if you need to catch a flight this hotel is the best option. You wake up and you are already in the airport.
I was at the restaurant, looked good, food tasting good but I think my steak quality wasn't the best.
In the lift you still see the sign"fitness centre", but it was removed. They did not bother to change the label in the lift. I got ready with my swimmer gear for a swim and I found out there was no pool!
It's just a great location hotel where to go for a shower and a sleep while waiting for a connection.
