    Hidden fees

    from

    my husband and i stayed at the wyndham hotel4/25/03-4/27/03 when we arrived and checked intoour room the floor was still dirty and food was left in the room it appeared to be in the process of being cleaned . we went down stair advised the clerk of the problem she said fine i will give you guys another room at no additional charge..the room we originally had was a king room ...she gave us a junior suite for no extra price ...when we got in the room the refrigator had a mini bar in it we were notadvised of any additional fees if we used the bar ...when check out time came there was a fee for112.00 dllrs for the mini bar my husband and i were totally blowed ..we explained to the check out clerk that we were not aware of this additional fee for useing the bar we assumed the bar was included with the room once again the clerk adjusted the bill i signed my credit card receipt andwe were on our way home ...three day later i check my bank statement we had a charge on our acct from the hotel 236.00..when we call the hotel we was inform that the mini bar fees were charged to our acct ..my husband spoke to several people at the hotel and explained the whole situation and they would not remove the charges. this along with staff member being rude also several crazy fees made my stay at the wyndham my first and last time at this hotel .....

    OK

    from

    The hotel is okay.... It is on the beach and has a pool but there is absolutely nothing around it. To get anything to eat or drink you really need to leave the hotel and go to South Beach. The hidden fee's are completely ridiculous and the food prices etc were really high. I would not stay here again and would pay more to stay in South Beach area.

    Excellent Escape

    from

    I just returned from a very nice week-long stay at this hotel. Despite some reviews, this grand hotel/ resort is amazing. The rooms are beautiful- they were very large, nicely designed, and all rooms have gigantic windows overlooking beautiful beachside views. The exclusive location on what I learned was called "Millionaire's Row" can't be beat! Highly advise you to stay here.

    OK hotel, bad location

    from

    Stayed at the Wyndham last week for 2 nights. The hotel itself is ok, the lobby area is pleasant if a bit dated and the rooms are large and airy. We had a partial sea-view on one of the higher floors. The room was fine for 3 adults, with the added benefit of a huge walk-in closet. The pool area is a bit barren and could do with some vegetation to make it more appealing, however the stretch of beach outside the hotel is nice and away from the crowds of South Beach. The only issue I had was the valet parking - $18 a day plus tips. It wouldn't be so bad if you could park your own car & come and go as you please, but we were put off using the car much after one of the valets said "going out again?" sarcastically when we had come back to shower before heading out again. Next time in Miami I'll pick somewhere more accessible (ie where there is some life in the neighbourhood)

    Very pleasant stay

    from

    Prior to our trip we were a bit nervous given some of the poorer reviews on this website. However, we had a wonderful trip. Room was clean,bright, and comfortable. The pool was warm and well-tended. The beach was clean and beautiful. Some of the chairs, and other pool/beach furnishings were a bit worn, but still clean. Service was for the most part friendly. You do have to bus/cab to local restaurants and other attractions, but it's worth it for the comfort and quiet you get at the hotel and surrounds. I also agree that it's not worth spending over $120-ish for the room. Do go if you get a good deal though!

    In Love!

    from

    Just got back from one of several stays at the Wyndham Miami Beach Resort (former Doral Ocean Beach Resort). I have been at this reosrt at least 6 times, and each stay gets better. The entire facility was just renovated, and thanks to the refurbishment, it is truly as splendid as it was when it was "Hotel of the Decade" in the 60's.

    I have been to the nearby Fontainebleau (which used to be grand, but now is in decline as it is owned by budget-chain Hilton) as well as the Eden Roc which is not of the same calibur. Both of these competing hotels are much older, too.

    The lobby is perhaps the most beautiful I have seen- with abundant marble, antiques, hand painting, and crystal fixtures. The staircase which descends from the mezzanine level to the center of the lobby is the crown jewel.

    The pool, cabana area, and beach are all first class. The pool/ beach concierge is accomodating and helpful.

    The on-site restaurants are a good value for convenient eating. The charming shopping arcade features fine designer boutiques, as well as sundries and the like.

    A must-see is the Grand Promenade located on the main lobby level. This spectacular ballroom is where my wedding ceremony was held. The room features an italian hand painted dome ceiling which literally took my breath away. The Starlight Roof ballroom is where my reception was held (located on the 18th floor) and features floor to ceiling windows overlooking the entire city of Miami/Miami Beach and the Ocean. The entire ceiling is filled with thousands of small recessed twinkling lights and is pure magic in the evening.

    I have stayed in almost every class of room at this hotel; from the standard to the Presidential Rooftop Suite (which was designed in conjunction with the United States Secret Service!). Every room features a water view of either the Atlantic Ocean or the Indian Creek Intracoastal Waterway and the multi-million dollar mansions and yachts lining the other side of the waterway. All rooms feature marble baths, a dressing room featuring a walk-in closet and a magnificent 3-part wall size wardrobe with slots for shoes, cedar-lined fur storage, sweaters, cosmetics/toiletries and other thoughtful touches such as overhead and vanity lighting. The rooms are very large- and not just by Miami standards. They are truly massive! Every other expected luxury is present in the rooms.

    The staff is polite, caring, and helpful. Even when presented with the most demanding requests- they find a way to help.

    The Athletic Club and Fitness Center is a recreational highlight- as is the acquatic sports center.

    Close to South Beach, but enough removed that you can actually relax, this resort is located on Millionaires Row (the most exclusive stretch of Collins Avenue, which travels the length of Miami Beach). The location alone will make you feel like a pampered millionaire in no time.

    Overall, this property is just magnificent. I would also advise you to consider it for weddings and such as we enjoyed it thoroughly.

    If you would like, you can email me at the above address with any questions you may have.

    HAPPY TRAVELS!!!! ;-)

    Only if you get a great price <$100

    from

    2nd rate resort, but great if you pay only $90 like we did. Very nice heated pool. Average service and facilities. Rooms have nice view of ocean or bay.

    So-so

    from

    I got this hotel from hotwire.com for $70 per night, which is why this room was so-so. To people who are thinking of staying at this room for the full price...don't. If i paid for this room full price, this hotel would definitely get negative ratings.

    The lobby was very nice and the pool was a perfect warm temperature...and that's about all the nice things to say about this hotel. The room itself was decent--it was average size and the bathroom is kind of small. None of the rooms have balconies, no fridge, no nothing. That's fine for Days Inn, but not for a supposed four star hotel. Also, in our room, there was no need for an alarm clock because the staff always woke us up. Either our walls were very thin or they were extremely loud and obnoxious. The beach was ok--not very clean, and if you want to lay in the sun at the pool..make sure you do it before 2 or 3, or else the shadows from the next towering hotel will shade you.

    Next, this hotel charges a resort fee...in addition to the rate, you will have to pay a resort fee per night of around $12...i would not call this a resort so i have no idea what the charges are for. I guess I paid $45 total to use the shaded pool once. what a great deal.

    Also, if you do not want to pay the $18 per day parking fee, you will have to take a cab anywhere you want to go--unless you are willing to walk 20 or 30 blocks to get anywhere.

    Overall, unless you get this hotel for $50, i would not recommend this place to anyone and would suggest paying a litte more to stay in southbeach.

    Terrible Hotel - STAY AWAY

    from

    This place was rotten. Plain rotten. Loud, small rooms, bad service, hidden extra charges everywhere, lousy beach with fighting staff running over guests with their jet skis, ICE cold pool, slow elevators, expensive on site valet, no self park, rude treatment from management staff, there are hundreds of better places near by - that are actually cheaper once you find out about all of the extras - deceptive and sneaky!

    Pleasantly surprised

    from

    While the exterior of the building is not impressive compared to many of the luxury hotels nearby, the interior of the hotel more than makes up for it.

    Interior - clean, 'new', comfy furniture, quiet rooms. Only drawback is the small bathroom.

    You'll need a rental car if you do not want to pay an arm and a leg for food - Minimum price for a meal is $12-$15/person, and that adds up quickly. There is little in terms of restaurants or shopping withing walking distance, but south beach and shopping are only a short drive away.

We walked around the end of South Point and then back up the other side and crossed back over to Ocean Drive at First Street.

    A pretty rough flight out of Tampa and the same landing in Miami. just love the Florida storms in a small plane. The flight was pretty full. Only a few empty seats. Now hanging out waiting for our 6:50 flight. Visiting with a nice lady heading home to London. She came this way to celebrate her son's 50th birthday. More later after we have recovered from our 8 hour flight over and our drive to Patricia's.... It's getting exciting. We can't wait to see Patricia. Love to ...
