I said up to because before I could even get my lugage out of the cab Fransico the bellboy/doorman was hard at work. EVERYONE at the Savoy is extremely friendly and makes you feel welcome. While I was waiting in line to check in there were 5 people ahead of me, one man did not have his reservation number, his work had booked his room & did not have accurate information. The next guests were a party of 4 (with 6 more arriving) from another country each had denied credit cards, as they were trying to find one they could use, Mary at the front desk kept a smile on her face the whole time, gave me eye contact to let me know she will be right with me. ( I appreciated that) I also appreciated the fact that while these young men were not prepared and fumbled around trying to figure out what they could do , Mary treated them with respect and kindness.
Francisco was ready to help us with our bags once my husband and I got checked in. As we walked past the pool he pointed out area's of the hotel, ie: restaurant, bar, pool,fitness center,and gave us information about each,then he pointed out "Rocky" a staff member. ( Rocky gives a wave to us which I thought was pleasant.) After getting settled in our nice room with a WONDERFUL VIEW (room 212-2) we headed down pass the pool to proceed to the beach. Rocky meets us and introduces himself. He then personally walks us out to meet Jeffery the beach attendant who will set you up with lounge chairs and an umbrella. Rocky then brings us ice water and a bucket of ice, (you could order drinks or food and he will bring that to) this man literally gets to know EACH guest, he remembers their likes or desires and makes sure you are taken care of...all with a friendly smile! The Next day we go to get our towels at the towel bar by the pool and there is a friendly man working "Gary" he was the general manager,(nice to see everyone helps where needed). we commend him for the REMARKABLE STAFF !!!! Gary talks with us and tells us some points of interest and other places to eat within walking distance.
I have stayed at a few places in Miami, The Riviera,Ablion,Chesterfield,Mayfair,Marriott, Doral,Impala,Fairfield,Crown plaza,Sofitel, just to name a few, and this STAFF OUTSHINES THEM ALL! they do their job with a smile on thier face all day every day. Everyone right down to housekeeping. if you want to be pampered, have a clean room, nice views, right on the beach, & walking distance to Ocean Dr night life, then this should be your choice HANDS DOWN. I have even booked this hotel for my son's honeymoon.
