“Old country charm, conveniently located.”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

We loved this hotel! Each room is individually decorated with beautiful antiques. It is conveniently located in the heart of Coral Gables, FL and just minutes from the airport. We only stayed for one night, as we were flying through, but do plan to return in an extended vacation and explore the beautiful area in the near future.

Room Tip: I don't know if they have a pool or a fitness center, as we only stayed one night, which is the...

Staying at the Hotel St. Michel is like taking a trip back in time and across the Atlantic -- all in an excellent central location and at a great price. My husband and I recently stayed there on a shopping trip to Miami and we had a very nice (if oddly shaped) room with a king bed. All was clean and functional. The front desk clerk took us up to the third floor in the elevator (which requires an operator!). And even better, restaurants in Coral Gables were still open at 9 p.m., which didn't used to be the case. It's not hipper-than-thou South Beach, but if you're looking for a place to stay in Miami-Dade you can do a lot worse for a lot more.

We had reservations at a Days Inn and at the last minute, based on trip advisor reviews, we switched to Hotel St. Michel. Everything about our stay was wonderful, including my conversation with the night manager who made our reservation and recommended a restaurant, POC, right across the street, where our entire party met for lunch.
The staff is so friendly and helpful, the hotel is comfortable, clean and has been beautifully restored. I will stay here every time I go to Miami.

Coral Gables, Fl. isn't South Beach (thank heavens) and The Place St. Michel isn't a Westin or a Deco star of Collins Ave. What it is is a three story almost l00 year old hotel on one of Coral Gable's main streets. There's a French bakery two blocks away that opens at 7 a.m., one of the nation's great remaining independent book stores about six blocks away, and some fine restaurants in walking distance (French, Vietnamese, Latino, Americano, etc.) There's one elevator that is almost as old as the hotel and it has to be operated by one of the modest-in- numbers hotel staff. Rooms are small, few closets, mostly armoirs, bathrooms pretty tiny. But everything is clean, fairly comfortable, quiet and for Miami, especially, affordable. There is a restaurant planned to open in the summer, 2012, with a Peruvian chef. No free wi-fi, PC and printer available in the lobby. Flat screen TVs with limited cable menu. Adjacent parking is about $14 a night-- very convenient. Safe neighborhood. Don't park on the street and let the meter run over; the local traffic police are sticklers.

My husband and I checked in to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. The Hotel is lovely and quaint. It reminded us of a bed and breakfast. The rooms were beautifully decorated with antiques. The service was amazing. They sent us a complimentary bottle of wine. We are from Miami and we would defiantly stay here again. We truly loved it!
