We had a wonderfully leisurely day lying around on the beach. That is the way to do it, in a small enough resort that you don't have to hike a ton to your room and where your beach experience is not overcrowded. Sitting there, we had all of these iguanas wandering around us on the beach which was unique. Jessica and Steven got to ride a jet ski for …

On Thursday we made it to the Miami Children's Museum where the girls had a whoot!! It really was worth the $$. The girls went from cashiers, to Firemen, to pirates, etc. They could have played there all day, but we had some shopping to do, so off to Target we went. Oddly, it didn't have most of the things we wanted, so that did it for the day. …

Step 4: Actually making it to our destination

A travel blog entry by tll-tina

Yep, we did it, and even with minimal tales to tell; thankfully. We woke at 5:35 AM, got ourselves to the airport as we should, and got in the "easy" line to just drop off our bags. Guess what? In the US, paassengers get ZERO bags for free, so now that we were deemed "domestic" travellers, we had to pay $25/bag X2! We attempted to chat about this, …

Shopping in Miami!

A travel blog entry by tll-tina

Yep, we're here! Fighting back the timezones going east to west is always harder than west to east (I think). The little ladies missed their nap today, which made for a not-so-happy flight for SOME of the flight. Funny really, because although we say "not-so-fun", passengers still gave them props for being "good" or even "great". At that point all …

Helllllooooo Miami!

3:00 AM came waaaay too early! With a brain that fears every alarm set won't go off, we woke up every hour or more just to peek at a clock. We slept walked our way out of the hotel by 3:45 and set foot in the airport by 4 AM, and I honestly can’t even explain the mess in the airport! We’ve traveled quite a bit now, and without …

    We stayed at the Embassy Suites Miami Airport hotel overnight before embarking on our cruise ship. The staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived just before happy hour closed but they made sure we were able to attend. Room service was prompt and the offerings were tasty. A breakfast buffet was included and it had a good selection of items. We particularly appreciated the shuttle to the ship's terminal the next day for embarkation. I would certainly stay at this hotel again.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Miami Airport

    It's good, not great

    from

    All the other reviews were right about the musty smell.

    I was on the 10th floor, so I would leave my door open frequently to get some fresh air...However it's close to the freeway so it is loud and I would get a lot of traffic exhaust waves coming in. Close the door and the musty odor is right back. With the door closed I heard no traffic or planes.

    Shower on 10th floor had very low water pressure. My travel companion on the 4th said hers was great, so maybe it was because I was higher.

    Room service was edible, but not great.

    Parking was $8/day.

    If you're planning on going to Miami, there are a lot of options. This wouldn't be my first choice.

    Beautiful

    from

    This hotel was great. The rooms were big and very clean. The whole hotel was well maintained and clean. The atrium in the middle was gorgeous. The restaurant was very good. Complimentary breakfast, and drinks. The pool was really nice, beautiful setting. Worth the money we paid.

    Not up to par for Embassy Suites...

    from

    Perhaps I'm bitter because unlike other reviewers, we didn't get a great deal - we got evacuated out of Key West due to Hurricane Charley and had to get last minute accomodations in Miami. A relative had a Hilton Honors card and booked us a suite here for the "discount" rate of $119/night. We'd been staying at a beautiful Hyatt resort in Key West, and the $119 sounded ok since I figured Embassy Suites was at least comparable to Hyatt. Such was not the case. Of course, it has the signature ES atrium, with lovely foliage and japanese ponds that the kids liked. But it still seemed to have an "old" look and feel to it, confirmed by the musty smell our suite had. The staff wasn't unfriendly, but neither were they friendly. Several calls to the front desk went completely unanswered, at varying times of day, and there was usually only one person at the desk, so you always had to wait in line. One time they actually answered and we requested extra towels for showering (only 3 sets were in the suite, although it could sleep at least 4), but then it took several hours to get them (by then I had taken some from one of the housekeeping carts that seem to be in the hallways all day). The room felt dark and damp, and the view from our bedroom overlooking what looked to be a scrap yard did not help. The balconly was about 1 foot wide and scared me more than anything. We were on the 9th floor and the noise from planes overhead disrupted my sleep all night and ensured I awoke by 7 am. Which might have been a good thing because if you don't get down for breakfast early, you're in trouble. It was good - made to order omelettes, pancakes, waffles, french toast, bacon, pastries, doughnuts, juices, etc - and free - but the lines got to be very long, and promptly at 9:30, the cooks shut the grills down and turned off the kitchen lights to the dismay of those in line (they could still self-serve the pre-cooked stuff, but even with that, the staff started cleaning up within 10-15 minutes. We tried to do as much stuff outside the hotel as possible, especially since our kids' favorite channel, Disney, was a pay-per-view channel! The worst part, however, was checking out and discovering that our $119/night had morphed into $135/night due to state and "suite" taxes, and that we had been charged $30 for 4 days of parking (and it wasn't even valet! I mean c'mon, who is the parking for????) And the location is not good - because of the way the roads run, it's difficult to get onto the highway even though it's right next to it, and there's a lot of industrial eyesores around, not very "vacation-y"...

    Will never go back..

    from

    I just came back from a trip to Miami, during which I stayed at this hotel for a little over a week. When I first got there, my room was open, and my room was missing a T.V. A few days later, the person staying in the room next to mine.. his laptop computer was stolen. There were no signs of forced entry, indicating that this was someone in the hotel who was stealing things such as his laptop and the tv from my room. The staff was extremely rude, the air conditioning was smoking one morning, and the a/c leaked several times on the floor, but the staff did absolutely nothing about it. Furthermore, when I notified the staff that a tv was missing.. well, later that night, they sent up a maintenance person (without telling me!!!) to replace the tv.. the person came knocking on my door without me even being notified. Needless to say, I will never go back there again.

    Great deal!

    from

    We got a great deal on this hotel through hotwire. It had a great breakfast with cooked to order omelets and lots of other continental breakfast choices. The managers reception was fun with free drinks for 2 hours. The hotel restaurant was very reasonable with a good choice of meals. The pool was not heated and too cold to swim in, as the temps were quite low when we were there in April. And they had a problem with the hot tub being too hot! But the pool area is quite pretty and we had a nice time anyhow. We would definitely stay there again especially if we can get the great rates that hotwire or priceline offer.

    Good Hotel, Some Grumpy Staff

    from

    Ok, coming in from the Keys and being dressed like an islander, the front desk people looked at me funny when I first walked in but they were cool, they gave me good frontdesk service and off we go to our room. The lady that works at the hotel giftshop was grumpy, I was trying to get quarters to wash my clothes and she was brash as I was trying to figure out how many quarters I'd need, I felt like I was more of a nuisance than a customer to her. The second time I came down to get a candy bar, she was still grumpy. Sheesh!

    Mixed Feelings....

    from

    We are fans of Embassy Suites, having stayed at locations in Phoenix, Chicago, Raleigh etc. When we read the previous reviews at Tripadvisor, we were surprised because Embassy Suites are usually pretty good. As luck would have it, we found a deal at Hotwire, and it turned out to be the Embassy Suites in Miami. We took our chances and booked for six nights...

    Musty Rooms

    from

    We paid $50 for the room via Hotwire, so I won't be too harsh. All the Embassy Suties basics are there - spacious rooms, free breakfast and cocktails. So the value for money was very good.

    However the room furnishings are quite old, but worst of all the room had a very damp and musty smell to it. But for a night it was OK. Nore more, no less....

    Good value and a haven at the end of a long journey

    from

    We have stayed in Embassy Suites hotels before and this particular one looks and feels like the others in many ways but, if you like the Embassy Suites "brand", then you'll like this one too. It's right next to Miami airport, so you don't come for the views, but it was a welcome sight at the end of a long voyage from the UK. We stayed here for the one night to avoid driving to our destination (Orlando) so late in the day, and they provide complimentary transportation from the airport to the hotel.

    Okay, but could better

    from

    This hotel is okay. When we first got here, the first room smelled like smoke, so we got a different room. The staff were friendly about our change and gave us a room on the 10th floor. When we got to the new room, there was a leak in the bathroom, so it wasn't so great. Plus the Tv didn't work right, the tv was all green with no other colors. And when we called the front desk to bring a electrition, the man came and was a bit rude. He said that there was no way to adjust the tv, and the elevators didn't work so he had bigger problems than fixing our tv. Then around 10:00, there was a thunder storm, at first it didn't really matter, but then a huge lightning, seems like, hit the building. The fire alarms went off. We thought the building was on fire, so, from the tenth floor, we walked down the stairs all the way to the 1st floor! When we went to the front desk, the lady said it was a false alarm. How Great! When we went upstairs, ready to go to sleep in our PJs, we found out we left the keys inside the room, soo..... then we had to go all the way down stairs to get a new key. What a night!!!!! Even though we didn't have a great night, the hotel was okay. The rooms were clean, even though they had some little things wrong, and the breakfast was good. They had a clean pool with a hot tub that is relaxing. The staff could have been a little nicer, especially the electrition, who pretty much told us he had more important things to do than help the guest.
