I expected more since the name is famous "Don Shula" and the brunch is usually great. I got my quiet and tanquility and thats basically it. Furniture was worn, balcony not clean, baby item left in refrigerator, coffee spoiled in cup. I was on the Signature floor but did not receive anything special. Most of the food was bland, kudos on the keylime pie and southwestern egg rolls though. Not impress with the complimentary breakfast, McDonald and Dennys is better and less expensive. Would have preferred room service than to go get my food and bring back. Why have a restaurant in hotel and you dont provide room service. No collaboration with hotel and surrounding shops such as discount or menus. I thought that was odd when hotels provide surrounding information in a manual. the plus is its a great location to shop, go to the movie and relax. The a/c was noisy had to maintain it in the 70s to have peace and quiet. If I ever go back it will be just for the quiet , location and tranquility. The room cost and food is too high with the lack of room service and add'l amenities.

Room Tip: Signature floor w/balcony and private access was the great part of the stay.

We stayed here for one night. We had found a cheaper rate on a travel website and true to their web site they met the price and gave us a free upgrade. They actually upgraded us to a suite which was very nice and spacious. The courtyard area is lovely and the hotel staff was very nice. It's about 30 minutes away from Miami beach area but definitely a good place to stay. Lots of shops and restaurants in walking distance.

Dated and greatly in need of renovation, room drab, furnishings tired and worn.
We chose this hotel based on its website and reviews plus location being close but not too near international airport; however did not allow for local airport runway proximity!!
In my opinion website is overly complementary. In response to pre- arrival email I booked table in steak house but received no acknowledgement/confirmation. Had trouble with key cards not working consistently. Steak house 2 dark and service slow - food was ok. Business centre advertised on Signature room floor but also used for breakfast so only open for that period. Huge fitness area with lots of equipment is probably only saving grace.
Would not recommend nor return.

I was very pleased. With this hotel, it had everything. The best part was the amazing gym with a great weight selection. Also by main street with countless shops, a movie theatre and several more places. This place was truly paradise but also had a bad experience with bed bugs. My mom was bitten several time and also had a swollen eye etc...BEWARE! Don't let this put you off as the destination and the hotel aside from this unrecognised issue was perfect. Spa right next to hotel, free of charge and great nice people. Good service and awesome restaurant.

We won this hotel through Priceline. I just wanted 1 night in Miami. Initially I wanted Miami beach and downtown Miami, but I could not get a room with a $100 budget. I finally got this hotel after I decided to compromise and stay further inland. Room was clean. Check in was quick. There are so many shops and food options on Main st. There was also a movie theater. This hotel is ok for 1 night. It is 30 minutes from all the actions.

Enjoyed our stay here. The area around the hotel is nice and various restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Very close to Sun Life Stadium. The hotel is not near South Beach or downtown Miami. If you're looking for a quiet, clean place to stay while in the Miami area, this is it!
