From the moment we arrived in our taxi with the bell man waiting to help us with a big smile on his face to the last day when they let us use the pool and a shower two hours after we checked out, this hotel has given us exceptional service. The staff goes out of the way to make sure... More

Since there were so many favorable reviews for this hotel I expected everything to be up to par or even a little better. We were pleasantly surprised to find that almost everything exceeded our expectations. One of the first things that I noticed was how well kept and clean all of the different areas in the hotel were. I could... More

We prefer smaller, boutique hotels & b & b's, so this was up our alley. Only 73 rooms - not spacious but well designed & most adequate. Large bathroom. Quality bedding & comfortable bed.

Bare basics: bed, bathroom, generally clean. Affordable compared to other spots nearby. Overall, not very impressed though and likely would not stay here again. Sufficed for the one night I needed to be in Miami but otherwise, probably worth it to spend more on a larger room. Some "highlights" of my stay: 1) Desk staff had no ability to upgrade... More

Overall, I would recommend, however, as I picked this hotel primarily on the good reviews on Tripadvisor, I feel some elaboration is in line. The hotel advertises the beautiful Spire Bar on its website. In fact it has been closed for months. My simple inquiry was met by "Oh, its closed", nothing else. My wife had trouble connecting to the... More

Very nicely decorated with a wonderful staff. We had a lovely stay. The complimentary signature drink was very good and the bartender was a treat. The location can't be beat and it was very easy to wonder around and enjoy the charming architecture.
