We chose this hotel due to its proximity to Sun Life Stadium since we were going to the NE Patriots v Miami Dolphins game on Sunday 12/1. We arrived mid-afternoon Saturday and checked in fairly quickly. Since we had a while to wait before meeting friends for supper, we went to "Legends", the sports bar/grill on the 9th floor for a couple of appetizers to tide us over. The prices were within reason and the food we had was decent "pub-grub" fare. In the morning, the continental breakfast was minimal - small Danish pastries, toast and bagels.
The room was standard, nothing special, but certainly not awful. Nice view of the racetrack and we enjoyed watching the horses exercise early on Sunday morning. There is a shuttle to and from the stadium for $15.00 per person r/t. We decided to walk - be advised there are no sidewalks, which could be a problem if you are not wearing sturdy shoes, or if you are trying to walk there with young children.
Overall, for the location and convenience, our stay at the El Palacio was good value for money, and we would stay again the next time we go to a game at Sun Life Stadium.
