Well, if you are looking for clean, relatively comfortable and close to "the U" then this is an okay hotel. If you are looking for fast internet, a hotel that does not charge you for parking and one that doesn't have a totally cramped bathroom then this is not the hotel for you. Good news if you are a platinum...

First things first: very friendly and accommodating staff. All smiles and "how can we help you?" This place is not right in the heart of Miami, but it *IS* right across the way from the University train station, which will get you into the middle of everything in about 15 minutes' time at a very low cost.

Ten of us from school stayed here as we completed a program at the University of Miami. The location was convenient, amenities were beautiful, but most of all the front desk service was always so kind and welcoming every time we returned to the room. Kathleen was especially sweet to all the guests, being the most polite lobbyist I've ever...
