Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MiamiOnBusiness Hesitant at First but Glad I Did
I was responsible to locating lodging not only for myself, but for 2 other business travel proteges. I didn't want to embarass myself by acquiring lodging in a place less than desirable. We needed something close to not only the airport, but also to Baptist Hospital. What initially caught my eye was not only location to my destination, but also that free shuttle was provided within 3 miles of the property which included Baptist. In addition, the price was so reasonable compared to other accommodations in the area. I was afraid it was one of those "If it's too good to be true..." tales. The property is well maintained and the staff is attuned to detail. Even minor requests were responded to with full attention toward meeting my satisfaction. I was very pleased to see that they had restaurant on property. I ate not only an excellent evening meal, but had a refreshing breakfast, both served expediently and at reasonable cost.
I look for comments --both good and bad before I confirm my lodging selection. You can add my vote to the positive side of your evaluation/selection criteria. I will be returning to this property upon my next trip to Miami when location is desired in Dadeland.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gmandarin good but can improve
Wifi had problem and limitations. I stayed on the lobby floor with very poor wifi signal in the room. I had to go to Lobby all the time. 2 public computers were always busy and many guests had problem to print out the boarding pass. Printer + computers were jammed. Small area for breakfast so uncomfortable when hotel is full. Hotel staffs are really nice and friendly except the Shutte bus driver. 2 times I used the service and both time he was grumpy!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Doesn't compare to Hotel Indigo in Boston
After staying at the location near the campus of Boston College numerous times, I was very disappointed in this Miami location.
The staff was very kind and accommodating, but my positive review ends there.
Old hotel with new funky paint colors and new-ish trendy cheap furniture still equal an old hotel with cheap furniture.
The overbearing air freshener in the lobby took my breath away. It was so strong each and every time I entered the lobby. As a severe allergy sufferer, this is a huge turn off. Plus, it makes one wonder what 'smell' are they trying to cover?
Restaurant didn't even come close to the one in Boston.
"Business Center" was a in a corner of the lobby and quite frankly useless. Needed to print a couple of PDFs for work and you could not open or download any attachments from your email. If you can't do that, then what is the point of having a "business center" ?
Hard to sleep when your bed is literally feet off from an exit ramp.
Parking is scarce and dark for the hours I was returning from work and leaving for airport.

I've stayed here twice; each time when I was living in Miami but my primary residence wasn't available. This hotel is as comfortable as a home. You can hang out anywhere without being hassled, the rooms are comfortable. Love the style, love the cafe in the morning where the staff learns and remembers your name, the casual approach at the front desk... walking distance from a Starbucks and Jamba Juice, across the street (literally) from the area's pre-eminent mall. One turn from all the freeways yet quiet.

Surprised to find the small dining area staff served up a very tasty breakfast and coffee. Our shuttle ride to the Coral Gables Holiday Inn saved our son from a long drive to pick us up. Will recommend the Indigo to our friends from Wisconsin.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jievan Comfortable room overall and great staff.
We stayed three nights at this hotel and found it to be excellent in terms of talking with the staff, room cleanliness, functioning equipment (A/C, TV, microwave, fridge, etc.), lighting and the shower. The wi-fi is a little slow at early evenings, perhaps the server was overloaded. The front desk staff and the serving staff were courteous, polite and personable, making the entire experience very homely. The front desk staff always greeted the guests whenever they saw them! The location is just off the highways toward Miami in the north and the Keys in the south. Our room was facing the elevated highway side, but it was very quiet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BAM65 Staff is exceptional
Every year we stay for a week at Hotel Indigo Miami Dadeland while visiting local relatives. Several of the staff have been there since we first started staying there. In the high-turnover hotel business, that says a lot about the management and the overall positive experience. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We particularly appreciate the staff at the small restaurant in the lobby. This is a small hotel without a lot of high-end amenties, but we won't stay anywhere else in Miami. The location is excellent and the experience is boutique, without the outrageous prices.

We booked this hotel because of its location to Dadeland and weren't sure what to expect since we were unfamiliar with the brand name Indigo. We loved everything about it! We didn't have a single problem with anything -- room, cleanliness, staff, food were all excellent. We would definitely return.

I was there for 5 nights, 6 days. Excellent staff, very helpful and polite. We got a great deal booking a week in advance, and we also got breakfast: good, quick and delicious options. The shuffle is an excellent option to take you near by within 3 miles if you don't have a car. Would be great if they could offer a shuffle from/to airport as well. I enjoy my stay a lot, but was a shame that floors weren't very clean, even we had daily room service, we could notice floors weren't wiped.

This was our third stay at Hotel Indigo in Miami and we would never stay anywhere else! The rooms are clean and the decor reflects the feelings of an ocean resort. The staff will go out of their way to make your stay the best and by all means eat at the restaurant!! The meals are beautifully prepared and again from the bartender to the chef they go out of there way to please you! The rooms are clean and spa like and they beds are AHHH so comfortable! We cannot wait to go back and visit our friends there!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cookenstein My new Getaway
Im so glad I found this gem in Dadeland. It is a refreshing change to the normal hotel rooms Ive been accustomed to staying in.
The rooms are simply different, and I cant thank enough whomever thought of doing wood floors. The carpeted floors always makes you wonder what's hiding underneath.. The rooms are othrwise spacious, and have pretty much all one could need, coffee, fridge, and a big desk . But not just any desk, it has style.. It all ties together well with the vacation like theme to the room. I may be on Business when there, but it does not always feel that way. The staff is friendly, and the location is in a nice neighborhood.
So getting in a morning run is in order.
Right now, my go to. And happy to brag of it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JackCarter Nice try...
After having a great Hotel Indigo experience in Jacksonville, I was excited to experience it again -- this time in Miami.
Just to get it out of the way: The staff was great. Very nice, very helpful - said all the correct things.
The Indigo concept is a nice one, but it is somewhat lost on older properties.
Not knocking all older properties, and sometimes you can pull it off, but this was not the case.
New flooring, paint and furniture can't hide old.
The bathroom is usually the first to give it away and this time was no exception -- the low, low toilet, low ceilings, exhaust fan, and tile were old, not original to the building to be "quaint" but old enough to stick out.
The Indigo shower concept didn't work here -- it is an average size bathroom with a tiled shower instead of a tub. The standard Indigo shower head should have been skipped for something that works with a low ceiling. A guest would have to be shorter than 5' 5" tall to stand comfortably under it to feel the full effect.
The teak stool sat comfortably in the corner of the bathroom as it would not fit in the shower as intended.
The Aveda products are always a very nice touch. But the room was missing the Keurig coffee maker, instead it was the standard maker in all the other Holiday Inn properties that spits bitter coffee at you.
The parking is free and plentiful, but be patient coming and going as the "typical" Miami traffic is right outside (horns and all), the hotel offered a free shuttle to places within a 3 mile radius - we opted to drive ourselves because the shuttle wouldn't have navigated traffic any better than we could.
Finally, I grew concerned about security after having five (not exaggerating) different pizza delivery menus slid under the door.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TeezWife11 Decent Customer Service but that's about it.....
This was an OK hotel to stay in nothing spectacular. The customer service was good! However, I think they put us in the NOISIEST room in the whole hotel. My Husband and I were unable to get a good nights rest after driving 17 hrs from Maryland to Miami. All throughout the night all we heard was the AC Unit running, cars and motorcycles zooming by, the toilet ran all night, and the Hotel Indigo sign buzzing outside of our window. On top of all of that i don't think there is carpeting in all the rooms because we could hear the person above us rolling what sounded like a chair across the floor at around 6am. The room also had a funny odor. The thing that topped it off was the used washcloth hanging in the shower when we arrived. Needless, to say we will not be returning to this hotel the next time we're in the Miami area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Foodie1 We're not in Montreal...
First off, I will say my entire stay was great... The room was small, but comfortable. The bed was elevated, which was a nice surprise. I'm 5'4 and had to climb up onto it....but I actually liked that and plan to elevate my bed at home! :)
My only complaint was the food from the restaurant. My first night there, I ordered a burger...and while it was good size and juicy, it was overly seasoned with a blend similiar in taste to Montreal steak seasonings.... It truly overwhelmed the flavor of the burger and toppings and I barely ate 1/2 of it.
The next night, I ordered the steak and spinach salad. It was a good salad, but again, the steak was covered in the Montreal-like seasonings and really took away from the whole taste of the beef.
Being the wife of a chef, I am a bit picky about quality and taste of food... The quality of the food at the Miami Dadeland Hotel Indigo was okay...it was the taste that was all wrong with all that seasoning.
TIP FOR THE HOTEL MANAGER: Throw out that jug of Montreal seasoning!! Save that for use at home....not for the restaurant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bobette Not what I have come to expect at a Hotel Indigo
I have LOVED all of my Hotel Indigo experiences in the past and therefore always look forward to staying at a "new one". This was not at all what I expected. I will first say that what WAS the same was the exquisite customer service (including how they welcomed our 2 dogs with a cute bowl and treats all wrapped-up with a ribbon - very sweet and special). Impeccable! Above and beyond! But the property itself was not at the standard of other Indigo's. It carried the same funky colors, the fun teak stool in the shower, etc. but it was clearly an old property they TRIED (but didn't succeed) in turning into a typical Hotel Indigo. They just COULDN'T. The building was too old and it just didn't lend itself to the Hotel Indigo style/brand. The rooms were teeny. The plumbing - well... the water smelled. The bathroom was teeny/tiny - not at all like the spacious bathrooms I typically experience at Hotel Indigo's. The quality of the towels - not even as nice as I experience at a Holiday Inn Express. They were ROUGH! The air conditioner was either off or blasting and was LOUD! I wish I could have provided a different review because I LOVE Hotel Indigo's - and although the neighborhood this hotel was in was great and convenient - and again the staff was WONDERFUL - but other than that the property was just such a terrible disappointment.
