    First to Review

    Reasonable prices for miami, free shuttle from the airport (unusual since this hotel is not close to the airport at all). The service was good, they helped me book a tour & tried to give me good directions for walking across a bridge into a better shopping area. There is a machine in the lobby, available all hours, that makes pretty decent individual cups of espresso for free. The breakfast buffet was ok & free, they don't quibble about letting you use it both the day you arrive & when you depart. The guy who picked us up from the airport was very friendly, came as soon as I telephoned & didn't just drive us - he told us about the area on the way in.
    We stayed in a bayfront balcony cabin, but I was a bit disappointed. The room itself was fine & updated, and the view was gorgeous. But we were on just about the lowest level, and with only 1 window (the sliding glass door) at the end of a very long room - it was dark like a cave. The rooms have been updated, look fine, furniture is good & the carpet in good condition. The room was very clean, I almost always look around & have to ask the bathroom be cleaned better - but not here. The exterior of the building does look pretty rough though - think cement blocker motel (the building that has the most premium hotel rooms - bayfront balconies) with tacky green outdoor carpeting & looking like it has fallen out of repair. That is just the appearance of 1 building, on the exterior - inside the rooms are just fine. You can do much worse in miami for more $.
    There is a benihana restaurant half a block away, and shuckers restaurant on site. Also a liquor store, grocery store, beauty salon and pharmacy across the street.
