... on with my bike ride. I loved riding the bike along the harbour - checking out the boats.
When I was about to return the bike, I met Tobie. I let Tobie ride the bike a bit before I returned it.
Tobie went with me to return the bike. We then went for a little walk on the beach and then I went back to the hotel to check on ...
... and let's just say, we are all feeling a little bit worse for wear this fine Sunday afternoon - Miami knows how to party and we had a legendary night with legendary peeps. She took us in, threw us about a little, fed us, watered us and spat us out in what is clearly true Miami style - this place ain't for sissy's but oh my it's fun... Mañana it's off to LA to start our three week road trip of the west coast, it's almost Vegas time baby, start placing those ...
... Everglades for Monday. The bus tour is pretty cool. You can begin your tour at any of the designated stops and at any time. Your 24 hours starts from the time you get on the bus. There are two loops - the City Loop and the Beach Loop and a round trip on each, if you choose to simply stay on the bus for the whole time, is around 90 minutes. The idea of course is that you get off and look at **** though. Buses stop at the designated stops every ...
... Luckily I got an Genius-Bar appointment at the Apple store so that IPhoto could be repaired and now opens again. The weather was bad that we couldn't o much more then drive to the grocery store, get Alfredo sauce for dinner and drive back o the couch surfing family. Again we had a fun evening with food lots of beer, drinking games a lot of stories. This night we had the pleasure to sleep on the air ...
Ah I do enjoy returning to places. Especially cool places like Miami.
I figured I'd spend the last few days of my trip in the sun, soaking it up before a return to potentially a very rainy England. Good choice it seems!
For a few days Sarah was in town doing much the same and it was really nice to share a few lazy hours drinking enormous margaritas at Gloria ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ritz-Carlton South Beach Miami Beach
I stayed with a group of friends for 6 nights (Mar 10-16). We had a fabulous time, and the hotel was one of the highlights of our trip. The room was smaller than I expected (though not uncomfortable) -- but the bathroom was large and luxurious - separate shower and bath, private toilet, double sinks, and fully marble. The beds were incredibly comfortable. Our room faced south and at nights the noise from the Collins & Lincoln Road intersection was loud enough that we needed earplugs to sleep, but the room A/C helped drown some of that out. The Bose CD player in the room was a nice addition.
I stayed for five nights and had typical, wonderful Ritz-Carlton service. Everyone was helpful and polite - bellhop, maid service, room service, concierge etc...They definitely went out of their way to meet any needs. I do think the pool service could have been better, though.
Beautiful hotel, uneven rooms
Beautiful hotel, altough some rooms aren't so great. We checked in at 11:30 am and even though the hotel was overbooked for that night (and the next), our room was actually ready. It was small but gorgeously furnished and had a cruddy view into the bathrooms of the Sagamore next door. There must be a lot of rooms with equally bad views but the manager sent us a bottle of Perrier-Jouet to compensate us (we booked a room with no view so he really didn't have to do anything.) We loved the hotel's pool, beach, and beach club. The public spaces are stunning and we never had to wait for anything--check-in, check-out, bellmen, housekeeping, etc. so it seems they have worked out the kinks. I highly recommend this hotel.
I too was there the week of February 15th and agree with the review of February 18th. This Ritz property truly needs to take a good hard look at it's staff and send them back to training. As soon as we checked in we felt the front desk clerk was rude and preoccupied. The rooms are nicely decorated...however the amenities that you expect at a Ritz - the flowers, the shampoo, Q tips - were missing from our room. When we didnt receive turn down service we contacted housekeeping only to be told that there wont be any turn down that evening because there were too many rooms that requested it. I understand this Ritz took an existing hotel and revamped it to their standards... HOWEVER I can not see charging 400.00 plus for rooms overlooking roof tops or the Delano.
Headed down to the International Boat Show with a group of three couples for the Valentine's Day weekend. What could be more relaxing?
I would beg to differ with the Feb 5 reviewer. I must've been there the same weekend (Super Bowl weekend, 3 nights). The hotel was very crowded, and check-in was slow, and made slower by the fact that every customer at the front desk had his/her sad story about how they were sure the hotel had guaranteed them a Club Room/ Suite/ Ocean view room, which the hotel had no record of. I can't believe the hotel was wrong on every one of those. Had it not been for the crowds and somewhat slow service, I'd have given it five stars. I ate one breakfast and one dinner in the hotel, and I thought the food was great; not innovative, as in Mark's South Beach, but very well executed. As for the decor, I loved it -- not the usual stuffy Ritz Carlton yards o'chintz and English country house hunting prints, but black granite, warm woods, stainless steel, very contemporary but obviously expensive materials.
Finally! A hotel that possess the Vibe of South Beach yet provides the sophistication and class of a Ritz Carlton! Perfectly situated just north of Ocaen Drive and walking distance from first rate dining and shopping. I spent 48 hours here but still had the opportunity to explore every wonderful amenity that one could endulge in. The rooms were modern, nicley furnished and most importantly provided a warm and incredibly comfortable place to retreat to for a afternoon siesta or lazy morning.The Spa was first rate and immediately provided an oasis for R&R. The fitness room was perfect for those looking for state of the art cardio and weights! The breakfast and lunch offered unique-progressive delights, and of course, the basics that we have all come to enjoy. The setting...cant get better...one cant help but feel as if they are on a deck of a cruise, looking out into the deep blue Atlantic. Finally, the staff could not have been more hospitable and courteous. This is truly a gem on the beach...perfect for a short getaway or a week vaca!
Returned from weekend stay on Friday and Saturday night and could not ask for a better place to stay. The decor was great, beach and pool great. No problems, everyone went out of their way to help. Nice room with big bathooom, and really comfortable bed. Will go back again.
Checking in was a nightmare. We had paid for an ocean front view and when we arrived, they gave us a room with the view of the Delano Hotel.
Hopefully the other hotels will finally learn what good service is !!
I can not wait...this should let Shore Club, Delano, and (the worst place) Sagamore what good service means! WMC here we come! Oh and to have a clean room....unlike staying at Sagaless.
