The Faded Lady

In its day, was probably pretty nice. Room itself OK, but overall it is tired and needs much attention. Dirty windows detract from lobby ambiance. Hall carpets need replacing and in general, looks neglected. Did not expect $8 per night parking charge or $2 per night mandatory charge for safe in room. Desk clerk brusque. Room phone, clock and 2 lamps didn't work, but we only needed a clean, comfortable place to sleep. Afraid we wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. "Adequate" is the best we could say.

I wouldnt do it again

Shuttle service, the two men who came were very nice however the shuttle van was very shakey, the brakes squeaked almost as though there was not a lot of break pads left, also the ride was a bit nerve wrecking because we were swerving in and out of lanes and almost hitting other drivers, and the speedometer did not even work. The hotel was okay, but not the greatest. The room was muggy and smelled musty. The ceiling looked like it had some leaks and the shower dripped and was dirty. The remote did not work and when we called the front desk they said they would send someone to take care of it however we waited about an hour and no one ever came. The pool was dirty and not very warm.

Great location but everything else not so much

The good: (1) Great location. It is right across the street from the outdoor mall and IMAX theater. (2) The price. Paid a very low price considering the location. The bad: (1) Finding parking wasn't easy. Upon checking in and asking for help in locating the parking lot, a rude staff member spoke to us in a very condescending manner. Checking in as well, the same staff member spoke in a condescending tone. (2) The bathroom lacked facial tissue despite having a dispenser. Inside the bathroom/shower had dirty foots prints. (3) Most noticeably, the room was freezing cold. Despite changing the thermostat to 80, it still was in the 50s. (4) Lastly, there is free WIFI, but NOT within the rooms. You are required to go into the lobby to access the wifi.

She is like a great beauty whose beauty is fading with age.

My experience at the Best Miami was OK, for a stay of 4 days. I would have been really p'd off if I had to stay longer. I was pleasantly surprised with the continental breakfast. There were about 4 different things to eat and there was your juice, tea and coffee. All included in your room price. The room had a small leak from condensation with the air conditioning so there was a little puddle ouside the bathroom each morning. We could live with that for 4 ays. Th room had no coffe maker, which was a disappointment. The staff were OK. No one was rude. The pool was once beautiful. Not so much now but it was well used by children during our stay. The electronic key was annoying. It often did not open the door and we had to keep trying for about 5 minutes most times. I loved the glass elevator, we had a lovely view of the pool area. Like I said, it just takes a little imagination to see that this hotel was once a place of beauty. Although time has taken a toll on its appearance, we still got value for a modest rate.

The Best?

Staff there are helpful and someones very friendly and overall professional. The pool is a delight. The metro station is close and convenient. The complimentary breakfast is not what expected, just plain everything, coffee, one kind of bagels, two kind of cereals, not very good orange juice, some pastries, coffee and one kind of tea. The air conditioning is very high. The hotel seem that had had serious problems with humidity and mold, since there is a mold odor when one enters the lobby. I believe the air conditioning is so high in order to combat the mold.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

The chofer of the hotel will take you to some place around 5 miles of the hotel, when you ask for. You just need to tip him.
