The rooms were great! And this hotel is located in a fantastic area. The worst part of this hotel is the restaurant for breakfast. We stayed there all week for breakfast and we can assure you this is no fluke. We were there at opening and first to be seated. With no one else in the restaurant it took 35 minutes to receive coffee. I’m writing this review 55 minutes after ordering and breakfast has yet to arrive. This is the slowest service anywhere in Miami. I would recommend reconsidering this hotel. They build in 20% tip so staff just doesn’t care. It’s a real shame considering how nice the hotel is.

Modern clean hotel with spacious rooms in good location. Very good service by staff. Sergio at the front desk and Carlos in the restaurant 👏🏻. Valet was very convenient. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby and not far from Brickell city centre.
