Our baseball team(s) from Toronto, Ontario which consisted of about 120 players from the ages of 15-18 stayed here for a tournament along with the Coaches and 3 Coach Bus Drivers . I must say everything went well with checking-in without a glitch. The rooms were ready to go before our arrival. The hotel is very new and has been opened since June 26, 2012. The hotel is absolutely beautiful!!! The lobby is an open concept with many areas to sit down. One area is like a living room with nice seating and a flat screen TV. there's 2 MAC computers and free WiFi for use. There is a bar/restaurant, and a coffee shop that serves Starbucks coffee but has free hotel brand coffee and tea available 24 hours. The grounds of the hotel is well manicured along with outdoor seating and a nice pool . The workout room is nice and there is a laundry room with only 2 machines. The machines could be upgraded but on the plus side it's accessible 24 hours. The rooms are clean and the beds are extremely comfortable, if I could have packed up the bed and take it home I would have! One draw back is one side of the hotel has a humming noise from the heating /cooling systems that needs to addressed. The humming noise at bedtime is tough to handle. I love the walk-in shower but not where the faucet is placed because your arm is the way of the water when you are adjusting the temperature. The rooms do have a mini fridges but Do Not Have Microwaves which is a wee bit of a pain. They have one microwave in the snack room but it was an inconvenience to go downstairs from the 5th floor. The snack room is unique which stocks beer, wine, candies, salads, soups, chips etc and all for really good prices.
The amenities are just walking distance. There is a Grocery Store, McDonalds, Nail Salon, Dry Cleaners, Pharmacy and various others fast food stores for your needs. A 2 minute drive and there are many other restaurants to satiate your palate.
As an avid shopper there was NO great shopping unless you went Downtown Miami or go for about an hour drive to get to a decent mall. Danielle and the staff were amazing!!! They were efficient and very friendly. Breakfast in the Conference Room was arranged prior to booking for the teams at different time intervals and the food was plenty and tasty. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel. Our stay was relaxing and uneventful and kudos to the maids for cleaning the rooms everyday after all the games. Your staff are awesome individuals and I hope to see you all again soon.
