The Chesterfield has two positives. It is in a good location and it's clean.
Other than that, it was a rough experience. First the room is a little larger than a shoebox, with poor lighting and tiny bathroom (foot needs to be in the shower when you are using the toilet). After the first night there I asked the front desk if we could change rooms. He said there was no vacancy despite a sign in front that said there was. He told me to ask the woman who worked the next morning. So I did and she was not helpful either saying she had to ask her manager in order for us to change rooms. Hence we stayed in the room.
While the room itself was clean the hallway had a foul odor. Also if you you are bringing a car there tack on $32 for valet and a definite $18 "resort" fee on top of the room price.
Also they didn't have ESPN in the room which meant no watching any of the bowl games, while getting ready to go out and what not.
No pool at the hotel either, no view from the room, and it is very noisy.
Finally I called the front desk 4 times during my 4 night stay. They didn't answer 3 times. The one time they did answer, I asked for more towels which they never brought.
All in all there are just many other better options in Miami. I'd go with one of them.
