Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Miami Coconut Grove
Our stay was very pleasant.
My group consisted of 11 family members and we all enjoyed the service and rooms. We paid $99 per night. We were greeted at the hotel with a warm chololate chip cookie for each guest. After a long day of flight, that cookie really hit the spot. The rooms were average size with good closet space. The room was clean and renovated. The bathroom was not big but enough for all of my things. There was also counter space right outside the bathroom door. The view from my room was of next door construction as well as ocean view. The noise from the construction wasn't bad. The pool was average size but very clean. My husband and my 3 children had fun swimming at night. The pool closes at 10:00 p.m. My entire family scored for breakfast!!! We were given a voucher every morning for free buffet breakfast or the american breakfast. Even though the voucher only stated it was good for 1 guest, the front desk gave us the voucher to include every guest in each room. Our waitress was great and made conversation with us. The valet was $18 a day but it looks like every hotel had a similar price. The valet guys were also great. They were polite and gave us shortcuts around town. As for the location, it was great! We were close to the Everglades, Downtown or the beach. We were walking distance from the CoCoWalk. Many restaurants are located there as well as live music on the weekends. In my opinion, the Cocowalk is better than Miami Beach's Collins Avenue. Collins Avenue is run down, not family oriented and loud. Some of the people there are shady looking. Even if it was just my husband and myself I still wouldn't stay near Collins.
My family and I would definitely stay at the Doubletree again.
Staff was excellent
The Doubletree in Coconut Grove was very nice. The staff was excellent, very nice and very helpful. Room was okay but we weren't in it much. Outside pool area is beautiful. They have an outside bar area but it wasn't open?! Hotel was very quiet but maybe because it's off season. CoCo walk was within walking distance and a very fun area. Area can be a bit dangerous a few blocks away so one should be careful when driving or walking. We took a few wrong turns driving and ended up in a very shady area. Located about 20 minutes from South Beach, it was nice to be out of the chaos and hang out at CoCo walk which we could walk to.
My husband and I stayed here for New Year's this past December. The hotels on South Beach were outrageously expensive. and we found a rate of $90 at this hotel and just couldn't pass it up. We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are more spacious than the DoubleTree in SOBE. It's very clean and staff is very accomodating. You must rent a car if staying here since its about a 15-20 minute drive to the beach. However, it's very close to Coco Walk which has many cute restaurants and shops. What we love most about this area is that you are away from all the maddness of South Beach and are closer to the locals.
Nice hotel , but a bit pricey.
I was at the DoubleTree begining of May 2004.I think they are done with the renovations. The hotel is very nice but a bit pricey. Drinks were $ 11 for a mixed drink. If you have a car park across the street is 25c for each 1/4 hour but how long are you in the hotel? I did not want to pay $18 a day for parking. The rooms were very nice ,very clean but a bit small ,all rooms have a balcony. If you book your room trough Hotwire or Priceline, you don 't get first pick at double beds, you get a king size and if you need a rollaway is $10 a night. The staff was very nice, but would not give in to my request for double beds. It is in great location. It has a nice pool with a bar and they do have cafe on site. Coconut grove is 2 minutes away , you can even walk there. I would stay there againg only knowing that I do not need a double bed.
A bit pricey for what it offers
When my fiancee and I arrived they were in the middle of renovating (or so I hope). The staff at the front desk seemed mildly interested in our presence, but didn't really care. Parking is a bit on the extreme side when it comes to money. (a little over $17 a day).
Our room which had a king size bed was reletivly small, with the bathroom not adding much more in size.
Overall the hotel would be a lot better if they came down in price.
Nice hotel - clean, renovated
My family stayed at the Double Tree for a weekend getaway in 'the Grove'. We found the hotel to be very nice and clean and service friendly. We got a great rate and had a very nice room with balcony and beautiful view of the bay. The room was beautifully renovated with marble counter in bathroom, etc... We would definitely return.
After reading the reviews I was pleasently surprised. Yes the rooms are small compared to some places but not compared to rooms in NY. The valet parking is pricey but is fairly standard for this level of hotel in Miami - more so on Miami beach. I think they had undergone lots of renovations as I didn't experience the same malfunctioning BR as other reviewers. It has free internet (bring your own laptop) or 1 computer on the main floor. The pool looks nice and faces west. Lots of sun exposure at night. Tennis courts next door. 10 mins walk from Coco Walk. Quiet and upscale area.
Skip this one
This hotel is not inexpensive. The staff seems bored at best. We were a party of about 15. Many had burned out light bulbs, no tv remotes, remotes with dead batteries, or not the cleanest of bathrooms. Worst of all was the dining area. The service was terrible -- tip automatically built into bill even if you dine alone. There is no complimentary tea or coffee. One morning I asked the woman at the register if i could get a hot tea to go. A lipton tea bag & small cup of hot water appeared -- $2.45. I would not stay here again.
Upon arrival the valet will meet you, and unload your luggage for you, and bring it up to your room for you. When we went to the front desk they checked us in and gave both my fiancee and I a warm chocolate chip cookie (I loved it!). Then we went up to our room to wait for our luggage.
Staff: We found staff to be very nice and only slightly helpful.
Room: We had a Queen bed in our room, which took up the whole room, the room is VERY small, compared to other places I've stayed.
They don't offer a continental breakfast, nor do they offer free local calling. We ordered pizza from one block away and the call costed us $1.08. But other then that we would stay again.
Valet: Is a little of $17/DAY. I think that's a bit steep. But the guys were very nice.
Hotel: over all it wasn't too bad they were in the middle of renovating the hotel, so there was some construction going on, so I really can't give you that good of a review.
What a DUMP!
Upon arrival to this hotel, I was greeted by two disgruntled valet attendants (the valet is $17.89 a day!!!) Upon check in, the front desk clerks were wearing street clothes and looked less than professional. My first room was disgusting - and could use some serious attention. This hotel looks like it hasn't been renovated in decades and smells like it too. My toilet and shower were not operable and the air conditioning (IN MIAMI!!!) in the entire hotel was shut down. I was able to change rooms at midnight (and no bellhops were available to help). The new room featured the same disgust as before, only the toilet worked this time. This was no where near the standards of typical Doubletree. Management also cared less about any comments or complaints. This should be called the DoubleTRASH Hotel. Stay at the Residence Inn down the road for half the price!

... process but we had finally hopped on the plane and taken off for an 18 hour trip to our destination Miami.
The plane food was okay even if i did have to eat with small plastic forks and knives, i slept for a small amount of time watched 2 movies which made up most of the flight, so I didnt need anythingelse to do.
... where we had dinner at a Cuban restaurant. We had a 45 minute wait which was well worth it. Neither of us had eaten Cuban food before so weren't sure what to expect... the food was divine. Shame it didn't sit with me to well afterwards! After doing our last bits of souvenir shopping we went back to the hotel where I died of a stomache ache. Not sure whether to blame the food or rum?!
Tomorrow we head up state to Orlando to visit the theme parks yippee!

Our flight left San Jose at 1:55 pm, CST, putting us in Miami at about 5:30pm, EST. The flight was uneventful, and I even got to watch a rerun of "Hollywood Game Night," which made me laugh out loud. I finished a book (The Day My Brain Exploded), had some coke and a Quizno's sandwich, and that was about it. We arrived in Miami and had to clear Immigration/Passport ...
