The stadium hotel sort of pulls a fast one on you. You walk in to the small but updated lobby and you think the lobby is nice and updated, the rooms must match. Then you go up the elevator to your room and exit onto a floor that is dingy and dated and so overwhelmingly smells like air freshener, you...

Judging by the reviews, I was a little nervous to book for the Orange Bowl but I'm SO glad I did. Everyone was very friendly when we arrived. We were greeted with gift bags for our favorite team (Michigan for me and Florida State for my daughter). Rooms were clean, beds were comfy, breakfast was very good and larger than...

We stayed here for the second consecutive year around New Year's for a couple of football games. Last year, I wrote a review describing several issues we had. This year, it was a much better experience, and it's clear they are trying to improve the place. Our room appeared to have been recently painted and the carpet looked fairly new....

This place was a rip off. As soon as you get there they hit you with a bunch of hidden charges even though we already paid for the room. It was real sketchy. The floors were gross to the point where the bottom of your feet turned black just from walking around the room barefoot.

I had the misfortune to stay in the Stadium Hotel last night. I had thought that booking a hotel room involved having a bed in a foreign town and being able to sleep in it. I was wrong when I booked this hotel. Fireworks started late at night (past midnight - and it wasn’t New Years Eve) and continued on...

High end hotel, jam packed for most big games. We got a really nice room with a small fridge, microwave in room. Will recommend. Getting there can be a bit tricky though.The lobby has posters o upcoming games, and sells merchandise too. This is a great place to stay for sports fans. Breakfast is served till 10 am, and you...

I've been staying here for years now. The upgrades are great. This used to be a pretty dingy hotel, and I really only stayed here for Dolphin games or other events at the stadium. I was really impressed with the upgrades. The free breakfast was fine and adequate. With Calder right next door you have another option for entertainment.

We stayed here just for a night and it was okay. It was a good place to stay in a good area and had things to do at the hotel. However they give you tickets to breakfast like they are trying to guard some extravagant breakfast but really it's as minimal as you can get. Just basically a bunch of...

People (staff) were great,has an excellent atmosphere and loved every minute of stating there. Will always go back there when traveling to Phins games. Price was acceptable too. Facilities are being upgraded which is only thing less than perfect. However this is clearly offset by what they offer which again is friendly service, great atmosphere, clean even if not brand...

The hotel's best feature was the great view of the racetrack and the surrounding area. My only issues were that the continental breakfast wasn't anything to brag about, they ran out of many items, and there were not enough places to sit at breakfast. Also, the hallways had that weird hotel musty smell. The rooms were great though and the...
