I was recently invited to join a ship inspection of the Oceania "RIVIERA" while in port in Miami. And let me tell you I was impressed!
Built in 2012 the Riviera is a beautiful, elegant and sophisticated ship. I heard the term understated luxury quite a few times.
The mid-sized Riviera (1250 passengers) offers 10 dining venues including Privee (an ultimate venue, which you can reserve for exclusive parties of as many as ...
... The people at the bars and cafes are pushy, but it is a top tourist destination, so everyone is out for their cut.
This morning we drove over to the Bayside Marketplace, which sounded better in the brochure than it actually was. Nicely situated on the water, but crammed full of souvenir shops, bars and expensive restaurants. Had a coffee (2/10) and watched a Spanish type of singer. The latinos love to dance and there were several men ...
... do think this game has been adapted to meet the needs of a TV audience as the frequent breaks in play allow for a lot of sponsorship adds without missing any on field action. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the game and would go again. I loved the energy in the stadium as well as all the entertainment provided, pre game, half time as well as during breaks in play. Although I'm not convinced that the cheerleaders add much to the game. (16-17 Nov ...
... with one in particular - Buddy, a 9-year-old that our tour guide was quite friendly with. We continued our boat ride and spotted more gators, as well as several species of herring, a turtle and a hawk or eagle of some kind that was hunting fish. Once back on solid ground, we went to see some massive, captive alligators get fed. We then got to hold a little baby one and take some photos. Then it was time for a quick (and really average) lunch and it was ...
... near the big island of the Bahamas, I was struck with how crystal blue the water was. It was a beautiful shade of turquoise.
Landing at 12:35, little did I know there was another travel surprise coming. Leaving the gate where the plane parked, one has to go up an escalator and then walk to immigration. When I got to the top of the escalator, in between me and the first moving ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree by Hilton Grand Hotel Biscayne Bay Miami
I stayed at the Biscayne Bay Grand Hotel during the 2005 Miami Boat Show.
Decent- but not exceptional...
Overall, I had a rather comfortable stay. I don't think that this hotel should be rated four stars since it is not very luxurious. The hotel staff is nice, and I liked the hot cookies they gave you upon arrival.
The fitness center is not 24 hours. This was disappointing since I was attending a conference in which the meetings started at 8 am each morning.
I also felt that the rooms, hallways, and elevator felt a little old.
I liked the Los Gochitos (sp?) grocery store/ restaurant. They had reasonable prices and great pizzas. You also could buy any personal items you may have left at home.
Hint... You can get free parking if you park along the street adjacent to the hotel (that was great!)
If you're a frequent visitor with the Hilton hotels and are expecting a nice welcome or the published benefits of HHonors Gold or Diamond membership levels (upgrades, welcome gift, executive floor, breakfast) then you should stay away from this dump.
Not the normal type hotel
Not the normal type hotel. It feels more like living in a condominium which in fact the building is.
But the hotel is perfect. My room was one of those with the long ways and stairs but I'm fit enough to walk. The room was huge with 2 double beds and even a sitting space. It overlooked the courtyard of and the Marriott itself. The bathroom was OK.
The hotel is just 2 blocks away of the Omni Metromover and bus station. So where ever you want to go you don't really need a taxi if you don't have luggage. I took the Metromover to Downtown (for free) and the bus to Miami Beach (for 75c). Perfect!
Really, the price-performance ratio is phantastic if you pay what I did, 37.-$. Had I paid over 100.- I would give the hotel a more average review.
Very nice hotel. Moved to this hotel after a disastrous stay at another Miami Beach hotel. Room was very clean and roomy, was able to comfortably accomodate our family of 5. Nice view of Bay and very nice pool and Spa. Good location if planning a cruise out of Miami. Would definately reccomend.
Nicer than you'd expect!
Our first night in Miami was our best. We booked the Doubletree via Hotwire and for $50 we got a 3/12 star hotel that rivals many 4 star hotels.The room was spacious and well taken care of. The staff was polite. The facilities were very ritzy. The pool deck on the 10th floor presented a beautiful view of the bay area, or the city, depending on which end you "soaked" in.Parking is a bit expensive ($19 a day) but the helpfulness of the doorman more than makes up for that. We felt like royalty.Area transportation is exceptional, so you do not even need your car while you are there. One block away is the free Metromover - an elevated tram that takes you all over downtown and the bayfront.All in all, the nicest place we stayed that week - it could only be better if it were on the beach!
Fantastic hotel , dont know why the bad reveiws
this hotel is great.. clean up to date rooms reasonable room service, rare in a big city. Great views and a pool that rivals THE VENITIAN in Las Vegas. WE plan on coming back again and again.
We made a reservation at the DoubleTree Grand Biscayne Bay Hotel for a 2 night stay after a trip to KeyWest. Upon entering our room we found ants on the bed and all over the floor. The front desk was less then happy to help us and offered "It's because of the rain". We asked for a different room and found the same situation. We quickly exited and had them make a reservation at the South Beach DoubleTree...which of course we had to pay for also. I would highly recommend DoubleTree Hotels, but I highly do not recommend the Grand Biscayne Bay.
I stayed there in December 2002. Alert to automobile drivers, parking staff misplaces vehicles. I was able to retrieve mine after I told off the head of their security. Threatened to call the police. The car showed up 2 minutes later, after an hour wait. Other than that, good hotel.
Stayed for one night coming back from Key West. The hotel is also condominiums...which is unusual so you'll get alot of amenities like cleaners. The room we walked into was dirty though...it was like someone cleaned it halfway through and then forgot to come back. Staff was very helpful. Overall, I enjoyed the stay.
