“Coconut Grove destination choice.”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

If Coconut Grove is your destination, this is a fine place to stay, on the marina and the public park that runs along Biscayne Bay. Right by the Grove eatery action, yet a quiet location. However it is a $30 cab ride to South Beach and to the cruise port, which are not accessible by light rail from here, and the public buses require transfer. A very nice 8th floor pool adjoins the restaurant, with a great view. The place was very clean, and we had a large, well appointed room. Pleasant, helpful staff. The room was $197.00 night for a city view in January, but we racked up taxi fares. It also included paddle boarding in the Bay, which was the most fun thing,

great hotel: Staff was very polite from the moment we got out of the car, our room had great views of the waterfront, wonderful rooftop pool, close to cafes and restaurants but we ate at the Peruvian restaurant in the hotel. Food was delicious.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the waterfront

The outdoor 8th floor pool deck with its view of Biscayne Bay was fabulous for New Year's eve. The music was lively, but not too much. The crowd was a mix of "dressed to the nines" party goers of all ages, including a few children and seniors, as well as those who prefer a casual mood. The chef and staff kept up with the demands of a larger than normal crowd and presented excellent dinner and appetizer offerings, and of course champagne and party favors. See you next year!!

Room Tip: Bay front view over the sailboat cove is what sets this hotel apart from all in Miami

This hotel is quiet, clean, and friendly. The elevators to the guest room floors require a room key which is nice for safety purposes.

I had the opportunity to chat with some people who work here, and they were sincerely friendly and interesting people.

The pool area was perfect! What an incredible view! Wow! The nice part was the pool area was quiet when I was there mid-day (only about 3-5 people) and it was a hot day.

The rooms were spacious and clean, and my balcony had a wonderful view. I was so impressed by the view and would sit outside on my balcony (table and chairs were there) for hours.

There's a cute area within the block of shops, movie theatre and eateries. ALSO, you can catch the Miami hop-on hop-off double decker bus around the corner. It will take you to downtown Miami, where you can also ride the Miami Beach double decker bus.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel, and would book a room there in the future.

Room Tip: I think I had a "partial ocean view", but I really liked it as I could see the marina and...

I stayed here for 3 nights in Summer of 2008. I paid considerably less than the current advertised price as I got a deal through Expedia.co.uk. This hotel was finished to a very high standard and the staff were very helpful. The swimming pool was also excellent. Coco Walk is a short walk away from this hotel and we spent most of our nights in restaurants and bars in this area.

I'll get the negatives straight out of the way. If you don't get a bay view room, you get a 'city' view room. From our room on 19th floor we could see Coral Gables and the edge of downtown. We could also see and very much hear the air con units of the roofs below. We could also hear the nightclub across the street playing music until 2 or 3 am. Factor in the fridge in the room that whirs away as loudly as possible and I can say I've had better nights sleep. A request for a room on the other side of the hotel (already requested at the time of booking but not met) could have been fulfilled for a cost. A decent nights sleep is extra it seems.

The Sky Lounge bar and Panorama restaurant is small and pleasant enough but not quite the dining experience the website might lead you to believe.

The room we had was spacious with a fully equipped kitchen (although nothing to cook with if you were to choose to). There is free wifi but you'll need to pay extra if you want it to be fast enough for anything like skype.

The immediate area is great though. Coconut Grove is lovely and there are some great bars and restaurants all within a few minutes walk - Greenstreet Cafe, Lulus and the Grove Spot all worth a mention. The station is a 20 min walk away if you want to take public transport into downtown Miami or South towards the the shopping mall at Dadeview. A taxi to South Beach will cost around $30.

All in, the hotel is okay. It's clean, smart, well staffed and in a great spot. The reception area was beautifully decorated for Christmas and felt welcoming. It's good, but it just isn't great and sucks if you're on the wrong side of the building.

We appreciate your comments and thank you for selecting our hotel for your recent trip to Miami. Like most hotels, we offer different rate categories for different views and room types. The best way to ensure we can accommodate a request is to book that room category or view when making your travel plans. We are pleased you enjoyed the neighborhood and found lots to due within walking distance of the hotel. We hope we will have the opportunity to make your next visit to Coconut Grove a great one.
