If your purpose is to have fun daily & relax at night this is the place where you should be looking. They have studios with two queen size beds & crockery for 4, so if your budget is not so high you can have at least one of the meals in house. On the other hand the building was fully...

Stay away from this place! The check-in is like an immigration process...first they check you in at front desk (took 10min) and then there is a 'second check-in' at their security. It took me 45min in queue to come to find out that I simply hand over a slip that they gave me from the front desk. I have zero...

We stayed here for 1 night - mainly because it had free parking (parking in Miami is a nightmare and costly!). The rooms look OK at first (from a distance) but when you look at areas in detail the finish is quite shabby and dated. We only slept at the hotel to can't really comment on things like the restaurant,...
