During our January 2010 vacation to the Miami Lakes area we stayed at the Indigo Hotel
located in a nice Miami subdivision beside the Don Shula golf course. We booked through Priceline and we very satisfied with our stay. To be clear, it was quite cold during our stay with temperatures dipping to almost freezing overnight, so we cannot comment on the outdoor pool facilities, tiki hut or other outdoor stuff. Additionally, although we were booked for the most economical room, the nice hotel staff upgraded us to a 3rd floor suite ... which was beautiful! The rest of this short review will focus primarily on the room itself.
The suite was very clean and spacious where the door opens into a small tiled area for your shoes. The walls were painted vivid colours of orange and green and had a mural of pineapples. To the right was a good sized seating area with a sofa, 2 singles and a coffee table ... all facing a flatscreen HDTV (we watched Lord of the Rings in HD). A small wardrobe (in place of a closet), a small desk and a wired ethernet connection. To the left was the large bedroom with another flatscreen HDTV in front of a comfy king. Of course we checked for bed-bugs and there were none. In fact the mattress was quite new.
The single bathroom was also clean and in the shower stall (no bathtub) there was a "Smart Panel". That is a sunflower-like shower head and 3 heads that spray directly at you. As I didn't like getting sprayed into the face, I never used it again. There's also a small shower wand on a flexible hose. The stone countertops are an upscale must and were fine. The only thing wrong was that the bathroom door wouldn't close. Not a big deal for me, but it might set some people off. Other than that the room didn't have wifi, a fridge or a closet.
As a side note I liked the fact that there were 2 computers in the lobby for general use for free and a printer. Also I thought there was free breakfast but there isn't. I hope that was helpful.
