Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PSWN Just too busy to help you
1. Invoice/Bill not given to guests - they promise that it will be sent to e-mail. It never arrives. When you call back the hotel, they hang up on you.
2. Wifi does not work. No one at desk to help you.
3. The ambience (6th floor) was nasty - nastiest among 20+ IHG properties I have stayed in past.

This hotel is quaint place to stay. Recently remodeled, the rooms are spacous, clean, well decorated and well lit. I checked in late and the on site manager was counting the till money and put me on hold until she finished. She didn't seem to mind counting or in a rush to attend to me. Other than that, the stay was quite nice and the dining room on the 9 floor had a nice view of the Miami airport. Lots of light and the food was basic and fresh. I wished they did have toast on the menu. I guess I could of asked for it and they would of found a piece of bread to make a slice. Being a Buffett, I thought it would be available.
The check out was quick and I was off to another day's work. I needed a place to stay the following night and i returned to the hotel to find it already booked full. The lobby is definitely out fitted for the busy traveler with an nice business center and place for printing off your boarding passes.
Good place to be stuck at.

What a wonderful surprise awaited us. We were upgraded to a beautiful suite on the top floor. Our view was of the Miami skyline which at sunset is spectacular. What a way to begin our first ever cruise experience. Thank you!

Front desk staff - great. IHG Rewards separate check-in line and priority service was good. Did not use the snack bar in the lobby, but it looked well stocked with good variety of sandwiches/drinks/salads.
Room condition - none of the local stations, which broadcast on HD, were available on the TV. The worst/grossest part though, was getting up at 2am and seeing hundreds of little gnats in the bathroom sink. It's not like I left food out either. I told the front desk in the morning, and was asked to send the picture from my cell phone to his managers, and I have yet to hear back from anyone. Because the desk agent was nice and offered to take a token $10 off of the bill, I wasn't going to go public with this. But, for the management not to have contacted me since and what is basically a leadership/management failure on their part, now it goes public.
The bug infestation was gross. Freaked out that they got into my bag. I will never stay at that property again, and because it was a Holiday Inn, much less likely to use that particular brand in IHG. I only stayed there to fast track for next year's rewards status (stay at 4 and 30 nights deal). I use HI Express almost 100% of the time and earn plenty of nights to reach Gold/almost Platinum status. I've stayed at HI at IAD and EWR in the past three months, and this HI was the straw that broke the camel's back in terms of using HI properties in the future. They have been consistently run down, beat up, worn out, and dated. Holiday Inn is definitely the weak sister in the IHG chain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UPuHi Extremely prompt House keeping/Maintenance
The maintenenace staff were extremely prompt and quick in fixing a problem in the bathroom. In fact the front desk manager came up to identify and fix the problem probably because it was New Year's eve and was short staffed.
Also appreciate the new year goody bag given at check in

Staff was extremely nice and helpful. The room and hallways in the building we stayed in were old and did not smell well. I understand they are in the process of remodeling so you may want to make sure they have either finished remodeling or ask for a remodeled room.

We stayed here for an overnight flight connection the next morning and it was wonderful. We were upgraded to a beautiful suite that was fabulous and so roomy for my wife and I. The restaurant food was very good and reasonably priced. The restaurant has salsa dancing on Sunday nights and it was quite noisy but fun to watch.
Alin all a very nice stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barrington1 Comfortable Stay
This is a very good Holiday Inn with excellent employees who are always ready to help. The only downside to this property is that they do not have a free breakfast as I have experienced at all other Holiday Inn properties that I have stayed. Location was very convenient, however, it took the shuttle 45 minutes to pick us up at the airport. Otherwise it was a good stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeffreyskm Another Exceptional Stay!!
This is my second of two reviews. This review is from January 6-7, 2014. We arrived after a cruise to the Bahamas to stay the evening before leaving for home the next morning. We arrived at the property at approximately 10:50 am. My husband had experienced food poisoning on our cruise the evening before and was still having discomfort and nausea so we asked if there was any way possible we could check in early. Raquan not only was able to find a just cleaned room, but got us checked in within 45 minutes of our arrival. This was a Godsend, as my husband made it to the room and was able to climb into a fresh, clean, comfortable bed and sleep the next 12 hours. Raquan was just AMAZING!!! We are also very thankful for the room service from the hotel later that evening when he woke up briefly and asked for soup and bread. We had eaten in the restaurant on our last stay Jan 2-3 and room service was just as hot and fresh as getting the food in person upstairs. What could have been a miserable experience for us was turned around to the positive by the amenities and staff at this property. The next morning, we caught the free airport shuttle to Miami International. We did not experience any of the negative issues from other reviewers. Our room was very quiet, very clean, comfortable, close to the elevator and ice machine. Again, a very pleasing stay with this property and Raquan went above and beyond for us given our challenges this time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeffreyskm Outstanding Service!!
We stayed at this property January 2-3 before our cruise to the Bahamas. We were picked up from the airport by the free hotel shuttle that evening, had easy check-in, and when asked to exchange our prepaid our room to one with a view overlooking downtown Miami, Ronald happily exchanged rooms for us. This trip was for my 50th birthday, so were thrilled with the accommodations Ronald was able to provide. The room was large, bed very comfortable, view great!! Other reviews described noisy airplanes from airport, noisy construction, poor accommodations, but we did not experience any of that. The only observation we had was with our newly remodeled bathroom - the door did not open all the way, as the toilet was in the way and the floor tile was not completely finished around the walls, This is a very minor complaint as the rest of our stay, the hotel restaurant, food, the staffing, the comfort was all exceptional. We even used the hotel shuttle service to the Port of Miami at a very reasonable charge the next morning. We were very happy with our choice and will stay here again on January 6-7 after our cruise. Stay tuned for that review.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Pleased Family Most comfortable bed EVER and Great service from Regina!
We recently stayed there over New Year's and Regina at the Front Desk was superb! She was quick, efficient and friendly when we checked in. While we stayed there, we had several situations which required assistance, and Regina willingly helped and accommodated our needs in each situation. Additionally, Regina assisted with last minute reservations on New Year's Eve, which were superb! She really gave extra effort and went over-and-beyond, in assisting us however, I noticed that this was not unique, as I saw her assist other guests in the same manner! She is an excellent employee and should be made "the concierge" as she is that valuable to this facility! "Way to go, Regina! You're Awesome!"

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Vincoletto Horrible Hotel.
Ive been on a Holiday Inn before in NY and it was really good so I decided to try this one in Miami. I totally regreat it. The bathroom wasnt clean enough, the hotel doesnt look like in the pictures, the air conditioned was really loud and was too close to the bed, almost attached to the bed so it was impossible to sllep with it right into your face. The hotel seems to be really old. The guy from the shuttle was totally rude. When leaving to the airport in the morning, we had all our bags IN FRONT of the shuttle, the guy just walked by, turned the shuttle on and left us there in fron of the entance and carring the rest of the passengers. No explanations given. We got late 30 minutes to the airport and almost had to ask for a cab. Maybe because 15 minutes earlier he offered to help my with with the bags and she refused. Maybe he did that because he thought we woudnt tip him. In the next shuttle they changed the driver, this time a very helpful guy and of course I tiped him very well. Also the lady at the front desk, realising that we were brazilians started to talk to us in spanish even we having started the conversation in english. I speak fluent english but of course have some trouble to understand spanish. She did that 3 times, really annoying! SO we had a crazy conversation of me asking questions and arguing in english and she replying in spanish, then I had to try to realise what she was trying to say. Of course she speaked fluent english so I had no idea why she was doing that.
Overall, terrible experience and VERY different from the experience I had the Manhatam View (I believe this is the name) in New York. Will think three times before booking a holiday inn again.

Enjoyed our stays (Dec 26 and 31) overall.
1) ice machines to work on all floors (6th floor didn't work)
2) improved food quality and choices for Dec. 31st. Main restaurant was closed for a private party.
3) didn't like the half shower door.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TeamAwesome Good value for the price
We travel to Miami about once a month for my wife's National Guard weekend drill. So we get the military rate which is pretty good for the area.
The staff are super friendly and very knowledgable of the area.
Breakfast and dinner are very good with a buffet and a menu to order from.
As an added bonus, if you are just in the area on a Saturday night are looking for some fun with a very adult crowd check out Salsa night on the 9th floor. There is a full bar and good company.
See you next month!

We were on our way to St Maarten and stayed one night at your facility. The staff upgraded us to a deluxe room on the 4th floor that was a suite. We were celebrating our 44th anniversary and were delighted to have such nice accomodations! We also liked the added bonus of parking our car there and the shuttle ride to and from the airport. Thank you for making our stay soooo delightful!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by floridarick perfect way to stay,park and fly
despite some negative reviews of construction disruptions from the remodeling , we decided to give this property a try, as it is close to the airport, offered free , secure parking, and had a 24 hr shuttle service.
Everything worked perfectly for us, and all of our needs were met, and expectations exceeded.
For parties looking to do what we needed to do, this has got to be the best alternative in the Miami area.
A complimentary continental breakfast would have been a perk to be appreciated, as the snack area was not open at our 6:30 am departure time.
It is rare to find a place that does not offer the breakfast service these days, and perhaps the management will consider that in the future as an additional reason for travelers to use their location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by scovelsmom FANTASTIC FRONT DESK STAFF!!!!
Recently my husband and I stayed here using the Park,Stay & Go package. Our room was on the top floor and huge!!! My only complaint is that the room had an unpleasant odor, kind of like cat urine. :(
We arrived on a busy Sunday evening. The night staff was swamped but they handled things great.
The morning front desk staff was super friendly and helpful. I very much enjoyed interacting with Regina and Raquan! The smiles never stopped!
We left our car for 5 days with no problems. I'm pretty sure the gaggle of ducks that I fed Cheezits to kept an eye on it for us!
Great shuttle service too!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Melissa811 Under construction
While I found the hotel to be a good value, the current construction made the stay less than desirable. Signs in the lobby alerted guests that construction was taking place, but that was not something I was informed of when booking the room online. Construction did not start until 8am, but after a late night working, I had hoped to sleep in instead of being greeted by drilling and hammering directly above my room. Other than that it was a little disappointing to be in a room with 2 beds rather than the king I had requested, and the cable was in and out. In the hotels defense, I am sure these are changes the staff would have been more than happy to correct, I was just too tired to move after I had gotten in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DTRND Not the greatest
Nice on the outside the room was kind of grungy looking. Not updated - no place to plug phone charger in by bed side because the only outlet was on the wall in the center of the bed and couldn't reach it. I try to stay in Holiday Inn's when I travel but this one has made me second guess that.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Goldmeier Do yourself a favor: stay elsewhere
Overall this hotel needs an urgent makeover, as you'll notice tear and wear almost everywhere. New elevator, new carpets, new room furniture should be priorities on that makeover if ever that occurs.
But what really ruined my one night stay was how filthy my room was (and I only noticed some things late that night): stains on the sheets, massive stains on the curtains, hair on the bathroom.
The next morning I mentioned the stains and the staff member asked me to send the picture I took to him, witch I did. And that's that. No apologies, no compensation. Nothing.
There are better hotels in the MIA area, so pick another one.
