I spent 3 nights at this property last week starting on Sunday. I had encountered several airline delays getting there and was tired. My very first impression of the property was outstanding! 3 bell /doormen met my taxi and could not have been nicer. Checking in at the front desk was so pleasant. I was upgraded to suite and told dessert was still available in the CL. Stephen at the Concierge Desk gave me directions to a running trail. [By the way the running was around a near by island, Brickell Key, where there were many condos and others running which made it very safe.] The staff provided several choices for dinner each evening. I ate at an excellent, yet inexpensive, Peruvian Restaurant ,Cviche, at 105 NE 3rd Avenue 305.577.3454. Also ate at Mary Brickell Village within walking of the hotel where there are a number of small resturants. If you are in the downtown Miami area and need a hotel you will not be disappointed in this fine property because of its excellent staff.
We stayed at the Health District Springhill Suites a while ago and loved the feel and vibrancy of Miami.
As an old "Cuban hand" from my distant past with the USG, I was impressed with the ambiance there, especially the Cuban cuisine at Versailles (that's the name). There's a slew of generations of Cuban-Americans there and the culture is alive and well.
Now you've got me hooked on Ceviche and a hankering for Peruvian food for my next visit. Thanks for that post.
