A conference hotel that pulled out the stops for a family visit A review of Hotel InterContinental Miami
I wasn't expecting anything other than the usual 'conference hotel' when I booked in here with my husband and 2 kids but was v surprised to find staff that couldn't be more helpful, delicious and reasonably priced meals and a superb location - within a couple of minutes walking distance one way is the free monorail that can get you all around the city - right outside the hotel is a large parkland area and within 5 minutes the other way is the harbour surrounded with restaurants and small stores - the 'Disney' store and the 'Quicksilver' stores were big hits. The pool is not a kids pool but mine really enjoyed it and I enjoyed its great location out on a windy deck level right next to the hotel's informal restaurant. We upgraded for a v reasonable cost to an enormous suite - with a large communal area our separate bedroom and a room for the kid. They had their own room/bathroom/TV so we all had some sanity! Would strongly recommend this hotel.
