Even though I arrived at 4 pm, my room still wasn't ready, so they put me in one on a lower floor closer to the street traffic, alas. My room phone didn't work, had to wait quite a while to get it fixed -- and I couldn't call reception to find out the password for Internet that they neglected to...

We stayed here because of its proximity to Nicklaus Children's Hospital. One night was enough. I'd never stay if I was going on a vacation. Not great part of town. Worried about our car in the open parking lot. Not filthy, but not clean. It was one of those places where I wished we'd had sleeping bags. Never interacted with...

Stayed here while visiting U of Miami. It is very convenient...right across the street so we could walk to our tour and talk. Hotel was just ok. The door to our bathroom did not close properly and my daughter almost got stuck in there. We had to really pull on the door to open it. Then we just closed it...

Just checked in this evening and had a great reception. Eddie and Michelle made me feel really welcome and took care of any concerns and my "1000" questions. Also apprecited (since I checked in late) that the lounge was open a little late so I could go unwind for a moment before retiring for the evening. Well done!

I stayed here for a meeting at the University of Miami. It was an easy 10 minute walk which I appreciated. Room was clean & staff were helpful. The free wi-fi, however was frustrating and the printed instructions provided were not adequate.

Love the availability of the area, the central location to several meetings I had to attend. Holiday Inn is just minutes from my office, and not far from downtown Miami - for sightseeing and enjoying the beauty of the downtown area.

We stayed here for 2 days having just found it while needing 2 rooms. It is a nice hotel. It is clean and staff friendly. If you have a car it is $10 a night which is a cheek. It should be free. But if you sign up with your email they will not charge you. The price charged does...

Overall, a nice hotel - not luxurious by any means but a good value for the money. The staff is courteous; we especially found, Liz, at the front desk to be very helpful. The bartender and wait staff in the restaurant/lounge were always friendly. The rooms could use a bit of an update, and the bathrooms are very small, but...
