Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aroe02 Nice place to stay
We spent the night at this HI Express because my husband was taking his CWI exam across the street at the American Welding Society's HQ the next day. When we arrived around 8 p.m.,we were greeted by friendly front desk workers. The check in process was quick and easy and we were provided the WiFi password along with the room keys.
There's a Tony Roma's around the corner and we love that place.
The room was clean and comfortable. I made my reservation online, and I requested extra towels but we had to ask for them again. (The worst part of the stay lol.# I like clean, white linens on beds and the blue throw blanket at the foot of the bed was so comfortable I wish I would have asked to buy one before we left.
The breakfast bar was the usual: coffee, cereal, milk, bagels, juices, and sausage & eggs. The eggs were gone when I went downstairs to get a bite but the woman #owner?# went back to get a refill while I was switching the juice into coffee cups #her suggestion - more juice plus lids!) I had to get back to the room before she got back with the eggs, though. Before getting the eggs, though, she was sure to give me a tray to help carry everything back to my room.
Very nice staff. It's Miami, though, and the one woman who was mopping floors only spoke Spanish. She tried telling my son to slow down on our way to the pool, but neither of us understood her.
Our son wanted to swim in the pool while my husband was at taking his test. The pool area wasn't bad, but the pool itself could have used a vacuuming.
It was my first time in Miami and we plan to go back when we can spend more time.

Only there for on night but it was a clean room and nice facility overall. I did not eat breakfast or use the pool. The staff that I dealt with were very friendly and accomodating. Very professional too. Thanks. I would be happy to stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MiamiSept2013 Great experience but small breakfast area
Thank you very much for your service during my stay at HI Express Miami-Doral. Comfortable rooms, great location. One small thing: The breakfast area is a bit too small for all the guests at peak hours. I believe the success of your hotel has made you a first choice for many Miami visitors and therefore is almost always full. The area for breakfast is not big enough to allocate all your guests at peak hours.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stevesq IHG Platinum doesnt guarantee room reserved, nor great service
Arrived at 1230 am, (late flight) room reserved was a King Suite Nonsmoking, which I paid extra for.
Room recieved was a double suite, which must of had a horrible odor at one point as it smelled like they dumped a bottle of perfume in the room to make it smell clean. Pretty overpowering smells dont appeal to everyone.
I went back to desk and asked for the reserved room. I was told no kings available unless i wanted a smoking room, and that even though I paid extra nothing could be done. Evidently being a Platinum member didnt help at all here.
Breakdown of the room.
Located directly over the lobby and across the hall from the elevator. It is a very large room, but for one person for less than an 8 hour stay, the room size didnt matter. Well I take that back the standard wall a/c unit couldnt really keep up with the larger room. Lets not forget that lovely coverup perfume smell.
The next day the manager called me.
In a nutshell. They screwed up so to compensate they put me in the largest double..which is close to being the noisiest double based on its location and the sounds I heard.
I had to ask several times for the room rate refund, manager thought giving points was compensation enough, I quite obviously didnt..
The manager was also convinced that since they gave the the big room i should have been happy and let it go.
What he didnt realize is this...
I didnt want the biggest room, I wanted what I paid for.
Eventually I got the few dollars returned to me and they did give me points as well. I travel a lot , i dont care about the extra points or even the few dollars, as much as I did the sleep and time lost dealing with the room, front desk and then the call with the manager. Yes it was decent to get my money back and some points as well. thanks for that..wait i had to complain to get those, should have been offered since they dropped the ball on the reservation.
Parking at this hotel is also not the best, the parking slots are not full width, they appear to be for compact cars. So if you have to park between two "soccer mom" minivans, it cna be a challenge to get out of the car.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mark43 Don't recommend
This place did not acknowledge me as a member even when I provided them with my member number a second time. Staff was not professional. I had stayed in another Holiday Inn in another country and treated much better than I was in my own country. My family needed to speak Spanish to contact me in my room even though I was in a US Holiday Inn.

This is the only place I stay when business brings me to the Miami area. The location is very convenient, the staff is always wonderful, and the facilities are great. I've only had a few issues during my stays, and every time the staff took good care of me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SaraColorado Not As Great As Most HOliday Inn Expresses
The rooms have been updated but are oddly laid out. Still, the linens are nice and comfortable. The breakfast (which we usually look forward to) was not good. The eggs were horrible and there were just not a lot of tastey options. We were rather disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Juli72 Outstanding service overall
This hotel knows how to treat a guest and make you want to keep coming back. I get to stay in a LOT of hotels and I can honestly say I have never stayed anywhere that has given me such great service. It is such a relaxing and carefree experience. Check ins are smooth and efficient and when I needed something, nothing was too much trouble. The staff goes above and beyond to make your experience the best possible. The rooms are great with all the amenities you need. The bed was super comfortable. The location is perfect. Overall I give this hotel A++

I travel for business and I stay primarily at Holiday Inn's. On my recent trip to Miami, I chose this hotel. The staff was great but the rooms were not that great and they in need of an update. I will look for other options when I return to Miami.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OldSchoolTraveler Good location, nice facility...
Front desk staff was overwhelmed by large influx, I assumed several flights had arrived at the nearby airport at the same time. The desk agent was fast and thorough, however, and although it took a while to move up in line to get checked in, he stayed cheerful and helpful the whole time.
My minor disappointment was the room location: I was on the first floor just off the lobby and next to the elevator. I didn't think it would be an issue but the constant traffic and chatter of both guests checking in and the morning breakfast rush made relaxing impossible. I could have asked for a change but did not, I was tired and didn't feel like packing and moving, so do not let this reflect on the property in general. I just suggest you take a room on the second or higher floor.
The staff was very attentive. Front desk agent was great, most of the breakfast crew just cleaned but one older lady was really on the ball; clearing tables, refilling drinks for the guests and generally making everyone's breakfast very comfortable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by decio right place with right value for me.
The hotel is good, great area for my purposes, clean, but the room was quite old.
The front desk staff not really friendly, but enough for small requirements.
Breakfast, this is a big issues. Spend 12 days at Holiday Inn Express and everyday had to eat exactly the same thing. All Holiday Inn has the exactly same cereals, same breads or bagel, if you cannot eat any fat, cannot eat the hot stuffs. cause all are really fat, it means that at the last days I couldn´t eat more the same thing and went out for some fruits or something fresh.
Nice gym space.
Other comments that I suppose that to be a priority club member should have better room. They gave me a room right in front of the street, not calm and relax.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Vanie It got better as the stay went on.
I made the reservation on the phone through the 1-800 number and I was not told at the time that I would be provided with whatever room the hotel chose for us because we were locking in the rate over the phone and we could not cancel. To my surprise when we arrived from a long drive out of town, they only had a King Size bed available for us although I had asked for a double bed because we have a child that sleeps in the second bed. I had also requested a crib when I made the reservation and it was not ready for us in the room, so therefore, I had to wait an hour for them to bring the crib to our room before putting the baby to sleep. I was disappointed. We always stay at a Holiday Inn hotel when we travel and this is the first time I wasn't happy with the service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobchy Great customer service at the front desk
I made a reservation at this Holiday Inn Express on Friday Feb 9th, very busy day. When their airport shuttle came by, it was already full and rather than making me wait for the next time around, they said "Take a cab and we'll deduct it from the room." I appreciated this, since I had been traveling for 12 hours and just wanted to get settled. Good people there, I feel like I was treated well as a Priority Club member.

My husband and I were stuck in Miami due to the snowstorm in Massachusetts. The level of service we received was incredible. It was stressful for us as we didnt have luggage and we needed to get home but the staff pulled out all the stops and made our stay, though short, very enjoyable. Thansk again!!!

We stayed here and left our car for a 10 day trip away. The room was comfortable, but the staff was what was most impressive. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. I especially want to give mention to Walter who checked us in and also picked us up at the airport upon our return. He is great asset to this hotel. We would stay here again and leave our car as opposed to leaving it at an airport parking lot.

The staff were excellent! Very accommodating and went out of their way to make things work smoothly and efficiently. The breakfast was well stocked and very clean. The bed was a bit squeaky and the fridge whirling was rather loud and I did hear it off and on during the night. I shared the bed and each time one of us repositioned it squeaked. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel. It is within a short walk to a delicious Italian Restaurant.
