Great location and a great value
This was an older hotel in Bal Harbour. After reading many reviews on travel sites such as tripadvisor and yahoo I decided to give this hotel a shot. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was large and clean as well. Had a decent view of the pool and beach. The location was great, only a 15 - 20 minute drive to South Beach or North to the malls and restaurants.
We did not use the the pool or the beach. Instead we headed to South Beach and Haulover which is only 2 miles north of the hotel. The pool was dead as was the beach so i would suggest renting a car and driving to the surrounding beaches. If you rent a car, they charge $13 a day for parking. If you can avoid Valet, do it, they let you self park and you can get save on tipping everytime you need your car.
The only room service we had was breakfast. It was decent. Nothing out of the ordinary and expensive as all hotels are when it comes to room service.
In summary this is a great location to get to Miami or Fort Lauderdale. The price is very reasonable for the area and the rooms are clean and large. Would reccomend it but would probably look at other properties when I return.
