“Huge fan!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

Stayed here with some friends and I absolutely loved it and enjoyed every moment.

Pros:
- Amazing location. Minutes from south beach.
- Beautiful lobby.
- Front desk was friendly and helpful.
- Impressive room sizes, especially the huge bathroom. Loved the layout.
- Awesome views from the rooms.
- Very clean.
- Starbucks in the hotel with other restaurant
- The breakfast included was delicious! I enjoyed the omelets.
- The showerheads (yes plural.. there are 2!) in the bathroom were AMAZING! Best shower ever. It's hard to take a regular shower after that!
- EXCELLENT value for the price.
- Kurig coffee machine in the room was a nice touch.
- Whenever we called the front desk for something, they were very quick.
- Room service was pricey but good and quick.

Cons:
- Parking is $39 a night
- No comfy bath robes in the room like most fancy hotels.
- The pool was disappointing. As extravagant as this place is, I guess we expected a pool to match and it was very small and did not always have a lot of sun due to the towers surrounding it. It was clean but not a ton of chairs.
- Did not like the pillows or beds very much.

I would like to thank the Staff of Miami Intercontinental specially Marlene Mascardo (Guest Services Manager) for helping me on my reservation. She was able to assist me with a change I needed on my reservation 45 days prior to my arrival. She also recognized my IHG membership as well as my Ambassador status.
I loved my stay at the hotel and the rooms were clean and comfortable just like most Intercontinental rooms I have stayed in the past. The location is a plus, it is close to most important places in Miami and not too far of a drive to or from the airport.
I did not have the chance to try out the restaurants but I am sure they are great based on the reviews I've seen.
Here's a TIP, if you like latin style chicken, try "La Granja" Peruvian Chicken which is only a couple of blocks walking distance from the Hotel.

Thank you for making my stay unforgettable.

We stayed in the Intercontinental for one night when our flight out of Miami was cancelled but wish that we had had more time to spend there. A beautifully hotel with one of the largest lobby / atrium areas I have ever seen. The staff were all eager to help out when required and the location is right next to the Bayside and Downtown area with lots of shops, bars and restaurants within a few minutes walking distance. The hotel is only 15 minutes from the airport and right next to the port for the cruise ships and is priced very reasonably by Miami standards.
My only gripe is with the cost of the wifi at the hotel, $17.95 is ridiculous when most others are offering this service for free.

My wife and I chose the InterContinental Miami because of its proximity to our cruise ship that was disembarking the following day. From the point of the door opening in our cab by the valet to the spacious air conditioned lobby during check in, the sense of arrival is stunning. The lobby is enormous with no ceiling in site and it opens up to a bustling restaurant area with a friendly concierge service, ATM and other shops. If you're going on a cruise, request a bay view room and you can even see your ship the night before you leave to further fuel the excitement of your journey. The reception gave us an early check in and we had time to visit the Miami Heat arena and the BaySide Marketplace (5 minutes walking) which was full of cafes, restaurants, and interesting shops - a real sense of Miami flavor. We did not get a chance to visit, but also heard that the Art Museum was within walking distance. The lunch buffet at the Intercontinental was also amazing which surprised us because it received a couple of negative reviews. This hotel offers a five star experience at a great rate and we highly recommend it for anyone looking to visit this part of Miami for any reason, especially pre or post cruise - we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Request bay view for a great view of the cruise ships

I stayed at the intercontinental for my anniversary with my wife and had a awesome time. The hotel is by the beautiful waterfront in downtown Miami.The hotel is in impeccable shape. The staff is wonderful. Spent time by the pool and ask for Clint he makes awesome mojitos. We also went to the breakfast and happy hour on the 29th floor and it was great. Mario Oliveiros was also incredible as well. The room are very well kept, and the bed and pillows are very comfortable. The intercontinental is conveniently located next to brickelll were there are tasty restaurant and bayside and also Miami South Beach. The whole experience was gratifying. For anyone wanting to get away for a weekend or for out state visitors I recommend to stay at the intercontinental, if you want to experience the best of MIAMI!!!!!!

A truly great hotel. They understand that visitors expect a certain level of service and they deliver so consistently throughout the hotel without fail. The hotel is clean, fresh and modern. It has all the amenities that you need and is a great alternative to anything on South Beach. The club lounge is a great facility to use too.

Room Tip: Overlooking the water in the upper floors

Green Features: Really good as many travelers now expect. I think that they have a good handle on what is realistic without cutting out key services and amenities.

Upon check in my family and I were treated like royalty. We were upgraded for free to a water view room which we just thought was spectacular. We loved the room with its views and comfortable beds. It was fantastic that it was so close to the Hop on-Hop Off bus and in walking distance of shopping, restaurants and American Airlines Arena as we had tickets to see the "Heat". The kids especially loved the dancing girls silhouetted on the building. Would definitely stay here again (but would love to come back to enjoy Miami without the kids)
