My wife and I stayed here in advance of a cruise out of Miami for our 30th wedding anniversary, Jan 27-30, 2006. The hotel lobby is impressive, and while we arrived at noon on Friday, we were able to check right in, and were having a nice outdoor lunch before we knew it. The pool set up is amazing, with great service to set up towels and a sun facing chaise lounge direction. We had dinner on Friday night at the Ritz Americana restaurant in a booth surrounded by sheer curtains, a beautiful experience with food to match. The hotel is a two block walk from the open air Lincoln road shops, coffee shops, and restaurants, great as we did not want to deal with a rental car. Dinner on Saturday night at Wish, on South Beach is also recommended. Catholic mass on South Beach is an experience not to be missed, as Father Albert Cutie says the mass at St Francis De Sales, and has a TV show and has written a book on relationships. We did walk thru the Loews on Sunday after church, and they were handing out bottles of water to the many guests checking out. Sunday Brunch at Emeril's with jazz was a nice touch, order the $6 pancakes, best bargain on the menu. Then Monday at 11:30 am we took a cab to the cruise ship and off we were. I would recommend the Ritz Carlton South Beach if you are looking for a great way to start a cruise vacation.
