Have now stayed at the Courtyard Coral Gables a couple of times. What a treat!!! This hotel is a complete renovation of what used to be some other brand. It is lovely....the atmosphere of an upscale boutique hotel. The front desk staff is pleasant and helpful. There is a nice pool and adequate workout room. There are also some fantastic restaurants in Coral Gables and shopping on Miracle Mile....all just a few blocks away. The Italian food is "real Italian" at Randazzo's but plan to share an entre....the portions are huge. This hotel is a great alternative to the Marriott's up by the airport and only another 3 minutes away!!
