Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Szygzy Disappointing food and room
In Coral Gables for a conference, and this was the hotel..
As an IHG Gold member, I expect not to be put across from the ice maker--or near the elevator (both are security risks for single women, and I was speaking at the conference and needed sleep).
Staff was helpful in moving me after some degree of polite insistence that the room was unacceptable due to noise, safety, and keys that didn't work.
The restaurant food was below average: chicken fingers turned out to be deep fried flattened breasts.. no taste. Buffalo sauce helped, and I expected succulent strips of breast meat with a light breading. The salad was good, except I was a little surprised by the pre-packaged dressing. Yolanda was the best thing about the restaurant.
The changed room was a corner room on the 3rd floor, with an underpowered AC that cooled the curtains very nicely but not the room. The bed was up to snuff except for the three silverfish. The room was spacious, clean, and well appointed. Since I had asked for a change from the room by the ice maker, and they worked to find this room, I simply helped the silverfish on their way and stayed put.
If you _need_ to be near UMCG, this is closest. It'll do, and I am not enthused.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mlasha1976 Nice Location!
Stayed during a conference, and overall a great hotel with a great location! I have stayed at many IHG locations, and this was the first time that I received recognition for being a member! Excellent! If I'm ever in the area again, I would choose this hotel. Thank you for a delightful stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by maypac502 Clean Room, Convenient Location to University, Good service
I stayed at this hotel 55 years ago and wasn't expecting much for a two week stay where I headquartered while taking a course at the University.
I was pleasantly surprised. While, yes, the property is older, a combination of cleanliness, a service-oriented staff, access to healthy meals quickly, and an ideal location certainly made my stay comfortable. A swimming pool, laundromat, and exercise room with good equipment made it even better. Thanks to all the staff for making it a pleasant home away from home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrwnville23 Unbeatable Location for any Univ. of Miami Visits
Our daughter will be attending "the U" starting this fall and we were down to see the campus and for her tryouts for a dance team. Really nice set up all around and easy walking distance to most campus locations.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jayriz Small bathroom and overpriced.
Bathroom was so small it was hard to get in and out with ease.
Breakfast was average at best.
A little overpriced for the overall experience.
