Imagine the ideal property for your vacation stay in Miami....Well, you have just found it! One and only condo with a postcard view each time you push the door !
Unit in the few building built right on the water, with a great convenient location to the best spots in Miami. This skyscraper, on the north side of Downtown Miami, Fl. has excellent restaurants overlooking the water with terraces, within its own shopping center, a modern gym with top line equipment and sauna overlooking the sea, very large heated pool and Jacuzzi, all beautifully maintained at 5 star Hotel level by the Double Tree Hilton management.
If my review was for the property at the Double Tree itself.. It would be much much higher. However this review if for the place I stayed, honestly.. Don't go here you guys. There's so many better places to stay in Miami. The property manager is terrible, they left us 3 rolls of ONE ply toilet paper for 6 nights we stayed... There were ZERO garbage bags supplied so we had to pay for our own. They charged me a $70 PayPal fee? For using PayPal to transfer them instant funds... All in all it was not a pleasant experience and the hotel services are going to get you ALOT more for your money... And in all honesty at the same price.
Our search for accommodations began 6 months before our visit to Miami. Having had bad luck in the past with dilapidated 3-Star “family” hotels and on the advice of a close friend we decided to take a look at the listings offered by VRBO.
At first we were overwhelmed by the sheer volume of Miami area listings presented to us. With a little effort and patience we were able to narrow our selections down by using the search tools on the VRBO website.
This rental's positive reviews impressed us and appeared to meet all of our requirements. As this was our first time using VRBO we requested contact with the owner. Richard responded immediately and answered all our questions with instructions how to book.
Shortly before arriving in Miami, we were contacted by the owner's manager who greeted us in the lobby and provided a walk-though tour. The rental is located on the 17th floor of the Double Tree Hotel- “The Grand” with breathtaking balcony view overlooking Biscayne Bay. The condo unit is large, luxurious and meticulously clean. The kitchen has new appliances including washer/dryer and stocked with utensils, pots, pans dishes. Bedroom and living room have LCD TV's (smallish) with basic cable and WiFi Internet is available throughout.
Like all things a few issues presented themselves during our stay. The marina located directly below the hotel generates a fair amount of noise from boats as well as revelers and music from “Party Boats”. The noise lasted until about 2 AM so we just closed the sliding glass doors. The large King sized bed mattress had a defect and tended to slope to one side. Propping a few pillows for support and the issue was solved.
We were very satisfied with our stay and look forward to returning next year!
We stayed here for 8 nights, and it was great. We had a wonderful stay at the condo.
The location of the appartment is ideal for visiting beautiful places like Key Biscayne, South Beach, Miami Beach ....
The apartment was nice and clean and has beautiful panoramic views. The beds are very comfortable, as well as the sofa.
Nathalie whom received us was very helpful and efficient. The manager is nice. We really recommend this flat.
The Owner was extremely helpful...I only gave 2 days notice of our needed stay! My son was in Miami Hospital for Surgery, and we wanted a comfortable place to stay, as well as close by (2 miles)....The building is clean, pool was beautiful, and restaurants were convenient and delicious...Was also nice to have parking pass, as parking is a bad situation in Miami...Publix was real close and nice to have a kitchen & fridge...Condo beds and furniture are comfortable and clean...Natalie was an excellent asset to us...she helped us several times with connecting to Internet...was quick to respond and on time at our entry and exit meeting...THE VIEW IS AMAZING! We saw manatees and fireworks....
The only negative is the sliding doors are very hard to open, and the walls could use a paint job! Other than that...HIGHLY recommend this 2 Bedroom home...
Thank you Richard for allowing us to stay in your condo!
We enjoyed a wonderful week here!! Nathalie was extremely helpful and easy to work with:) The condo was great with beautiful views. Nice to have a Publix within walking distance.
So much to do here!! Convenient to South Beach, shopping and dining. Spent a day at the beach on Key Biscayne as well. Definitely plan on returning!!!
