Its so good to be back
Today was a chill out day which we really needed after the activity of last week. Picked up a car hire, dodge minivan, great car, reminded me of the car that Homer Simpson designed with every concevable convenience , push button door opening and closing, fold out cup holders from floor to ceiling, Three video screens
Took a drive and …
Almost missed the plane, but a lovely AA staff member took us under her wing and got us thru just in time. Later discovered that we left behind a camera battery charger in the RV, oops.
... and I am more the color of bleached flour. Thus ensues a LONG, HOT, HUMID walk to the nearest drug store that wasn't near at all, to buy makeup. (Yes, I am that vain. I admit it. Don't care.) we arrive back at the hotel drenched in sweat, walk in the door and my son informs me that I look like someone threw me in the pool...thanks. Bright side, we made it on time (pretty much) to the conference. We left right after it to drive home. Day 4 - this time we spend the night ...

Anyway. I digress – from one tramp to the next – I had to transfer at some all American, American mall which wasn’t actually open yet, but full of your standard mall rats, one of which was having some schcitzo rant about BELONGINGS EVERYWHERE!!! Presumedly referring to all the items falling out of various dry sacks, plastic bags and broken zips of mine ( I told you I was becoming homeless) I gathered all my stuff, tried to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fortune House Hotel Miami
Mothballs that open windows could not cure
Arrived to find reserved accomodations not available. Were given alternate arrangements after a lengthy wait. The one room smelled so badly of mothballs I could not stay in it. I slept on a dirty couch in our second apartment.
I can not believe the good reviews that I see on this page.
If you are a tourist, donīt goe there. I really donīt understand how you have put The Fortune House in your web, furniture is old and durty and sofa bed is sticky.
It could be ok fore someone who has a car hire, and just go there to sleep.
I suppose some apartments has been renovated and others are not. Any way I had 4 nights booked and only stayed one.
My solution was Sherton biscayne bay. much better than the fortune house.
We called it at home Unfortune House
I d never come back to the hotel. Because its true, its really cheap, but if you are looking for the new furniture and clean everything you see on the of. web site, forget it! you wont find that. I was expecting exactly what I saw but instead of that, I spent 20 days in a really used and tired apartment. The sofas where really sticky and I couldn even think about sitting there...
The main sleeping room was really small and the main bed had a brown stain, like coffee , and they didnt change ir for the hole stay... I had to sleep with that on me...
The bathroom was really ugly. everything low quality plastic.
There was nothing I liked from the hotel. Sorry! People was really kind but...
I returned yesterday from 11 days in Miami. Before I left I researched all the other hotels in Miami, read their reviews and I couldn't recommend Fortune House Hotel highly enough. The staff, from the front desk Pablo, Carolina and Gabriella even to the cleaning ladies, everyone was happy and keen to help with everything. When needed, they even recomended me a taxi driver Frank, so helpful and reliable that in fact he became my chauffeur for the whole stay. He even invited me for a tasty home-cooked lunch in Little Havana. Very, very impressive. And not least of all the location is great, two blocks away from Publix (the supermarket chain), just a block away from the Metro mover (free ride) and one station away from Metrorail ($1.25 per ride). Also you're only 5 minutes from Vizcaya Mansion, and 10 minutes from Coconut Grove and Downtown Miami's Bayside Mall in the opposite direction. Fortune House is located in Brickell, in the heart of the Business District, away from the busy Miami beach, but the Hotel's swimming pool is one the best treats. Opened from 6am to 12pm, for the evening swim the water is so warm it feels like you're almost having a bath. Not bad for an outdoor pool. Also the gym is quite big as well and doesn't get crowded at all.
I booked this hotel online because a friend who recently stayed there recommended it. I wasnt familar with it so I checked their reviews and it sounded pretty good. I checked in and the people at the front desk were very nice. My room was clean, spacious and had a great view, I felt right at home!
My experience was great so I promised I would write a nice review, so here it is.
Pleasant stay and good service.
I stay here several times a year when I travel for business and I've decided to post my opinion about this hotel. This is a great hotel with great service that offers me incredible value. Their suites are very spacious and their facilities are complete. In the last 2 years that I've been coming here I've seen how this area has exploded in populalrity with the construction of the Four Seasons Hotel next door.
This hotel don't have a restaurant. Instead they have a Deli which is
Ok for a quick bite to eat but not the place I would like to have
dinner at. But I guess now with the new restaurants in the area I can
just cross the street and find a nice place to eat. I like this hotel
very much and have become very fond of their wonderful staff.
We stayed here during the winter music festival and had a great time.
We were staying at the Four Seasons Hotel for 1 month but noticed the Fortune House next door. We were pleasently surpriced to find out that for half what we were paying for at the Four Seasons we could stay in a 2 bedroom suite. The hotel is incredible, the staff is overly friendly and we just had a great time. The thing that surpriced me the most was their huge gym!! Would definitelly stay there again. Yes, it was hard to get a reservation, we had to wait 3 days for them to have room for us.That's the only bad thing.. but it's also a good thing I guess. Would make me nervous to be in an empty hotel.
I have stayed at the Fortune House on several occasions, and the staff has been extremely accomodating. When you are a repeat guest, you receive a better quote, sometimes 50 dollars off the standard rate. The one bedroom apartment is quite comfortable with a full kitchen, washer and dryer and with nice views of downtown miami. The apartment feels like you are at home. If we had a problem with the room that we were in, the staff either moved us to a more confortable room or upgraded us to a high floor more spacious two bedroom apartment. I recommend this hotel to anyone who needs more room than a studio hotel.
