Well Hi everyone, here goes Captain Slog, the intrepid traveller, setting out on yet another voyage into the deep unknown!
Well, not exactly unknown...... not exactly deep either but definitely a bit different this time.
There was a touch of deja vu yesterday as my lovely Wendy drove me so safely to Heathrow. She is such a good …
And for the rest of the vacations we have rested in Miami on the beach ;)
In Miami, we have decided to go to beach and rest, to go to the biggest Shopping Center in the region!!! We have bought aproximatywli 1564886 things :D.
Today's our last day in paradise :( We basically spent the morning laying on the beach before checking out. When we got to the airport we discovered that our plane was delayed. Dang, we should have checked our flight before leaving so we could stay in the beach longer! Apparently there was some mechanical issue with the plane and they had to bring …
Stayed over at the Sheraton. My sister and I had room service hamburgers for dinner and watched "Heartbreak Ridge" on the in room movies. I thought it was boring. The next day we caught the bus to the ship, and set sail around 3pm. At sea the following day. I remember seeing Cuba in the distance. The following morning I was outside when we sailed past Cancun. Docked in Cozumel around 11am.

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton & Miami Airport Convention Center
OK to stay
good guest rooms. well maintained and nice housekeeping service. Restaurants and bars are another story! The waiters and captains careless if you are well served or not. They all gather and discuss their ordeals but are not attentive to guest´s needs. Even the captain serves himself from the buffet and hides in the kitchen to have his meal while the waiters ignore what goes on in the restaurant and bar. No manager around to take action and supervise.
We stayed there in a business trip for Location and good rates, service is good they have great service staff the big problem was at the check out, I guaranteed the room with my Amex, my colleague arrived first and he changed the credit card putting his instead. The reservation was for 7 days he departs 3 days before asking if there will be early departure charges. Front desk say no. So he checked out. When we back home he had a full charge for 7 nights, he called the hotel and front desk mention that he never checked out.. Ok one mistake can happened...
I must that I was perfectly pleased with my stay at the Sheraton Miami Mart Hotel. My husband and I stayed on New Year's Eve before leaving for a cruise. Wonderful Service. Hotel and Room was very clean and nicely decorated. I would stay here again!
There is a daily parking fee.
The pool looked great but we did not swim.
Nice bar with several TVs.
Loved the sheraton
Loved this sheraton. staff very helpful and the stores inside the hotel were great to shop at. room was great and beds were very comfortable. the only thing i did not like was there are no vending machines to get a soda. you can call room service but that will cost you plenty!!! and i called room service and front desk several times for a pricing on the mini bar in our room but no one responded. i dare not open anything in that mini bar until i could find out the prices. just little things but it was a very nice hotel for the money.
We recently stayed at the Sheraton (December 29th). We were able to get a price of $75 dollars a night through priceline. The hotel lobby area is well appointed.
I stayed at the Sheraton Miami Mart Hotel for two nights in the beginning of December, 2005.
Were we disappointed - had expected more from a Sheraton. Only 1 of 3 elevators worked, halls dirty, noisy room, whirlpool did not work, entertainment promised nightly on website and by desk clerk, but was none on 2 the 2 nights we were there. However, the bed was very comfortable, and the room itself was clean.
A colleague and I stayed 3 nights at the Sheraton. First impression was that the huge front parking lots all were sealed off to guests and only available to valet parking, $8 per day. Only 1/3 of the parking area was used. If you want to park yourself, it's on the side and behind the hotel, a ways to walk and $3. Ridiculous!
What a great Service!!!!!
As usual, the Hotel consistently delivered great service, on great, remodeled rooms and public space. The bar was quite cool and the wholesale mall attached to the hotel provided better bargains than anywhere else in Miami.
I will just continue staying there.
Just stayed at the Sheraton Miami Mart hotel (10/8-10/10/05) which is conveniently located near the airport and freeway but well away from any noise. To access downtown Miami and other points, it is only about a 10-15 minute drive. The hotel has a small but nice pool, fabulous Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner buffets. Service was fantastic and apparently you just dial 0 for any complaints. Airport shuttle to/from airport apprx every 15 minutes after 0530 and every 1/2 hour at off peak times or by request. Rooms were huge, spotless and beautifully decorated. Amenities included were iron/ironing board/hairdryer. The best part is that the hotel is located next to a wholesale-type shopping mall, a true shoppers paradise and appears to be within the wholesale district. Sadly, I arrived late Saturday and left very early Monday so I did not get to enjoy all the tremendous shopping the mall seemed to offer at deep discount prices. (Closed Sunday.) As I travel more often, I am finding the greatest places to stay are these 'business' hotels, away from crowds, larger rooms and more amenities than then the touristy hotels which offer much less at higher prices due to their locale.
