Good location for University

We were visiting UM, so had a very short stay. Hotel is convenient to airport, but leave time for traffic on weekdays. Staff was very friendly, beds comfy enough.

midweek getaway

We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The hotel seems to be used as dormitory rooms for the University of Miami as there were a lot of students with bikes in the hallways and elevators. The ice makers were disconnected. The breakfast was great but if you are not staying for an extended amount of time it is NOT included in the room price and is about $10.00 per person for the buffet. We were attending a play at the University of Miami so it was a good location for us.

Fabulous mattress!

Not only was the staff incredibly helpful, but the mattress was hands-down the best I have slept on. Very convenient location for anyone doing business at the University of Miami. Very nice pool area, and the restaurant and bar are an added bonus.

University of Miami Hotel

We took our daughter to U. Miami and found this hotel in a perfect location, right across from campus. Clean, friendly staff. Good value, too.

Business trip

I just stayed there for a business trip. So I basically only went in there to sleep. Hotel seems a little aged. The staff is very nice. Rooms are spacey and clean. One sore spot - especially for me as a business traveller - is that their internet is so slow it is basically unusable. I called reception, they connected me to a support hotline - which hung up on me...

Fantastic if Visiting Univ. Miami

This hotel is perfect if you are visiting Univ. Miami and traveling back and forth to the Campus. We were in town for an overnight stay for soccer and the hotel is less than 1/2 mile from stadium and in a very safe location!
