Fodor's Review

Near the Port of Miami at the north end of downtown, this waterfront hotel offers relatively basic, spacious rooms and convenient access to and from the cruise ships and downtown, making it a good crash pad for budget-conscious cruise passengers. Some rooms have nice views of Biscayne Bay, but some are also in desperate need of refurbishment. The pool area was redone in 2012. A highlight here is the revamped marina, where you can rent Jet Skis or take deep-sea-fishing

Love the view!

Excellent view, nice large room. One of the beds collapsed & we had to repair it in the middle of the night. We object to being charged for 'valet parking' (they don't do this in the UK) and we were rather surprised that there was no decent place for breakfast (we had to order room service which we thought was overpriced).However we thought the location was excellent and the staff helpful. It is very near the Metrorail, which is free, and takes you

straight to the Bayside area in a few minutes.
