Pre-Cruise one night stay.

Pros: N/A
Cons: Your SHUTTLE service! Have a "marked" waiting area for your hotel. Funny thing is, we took shuttle back to airport in morning and it took 15 minutes
Location: N/A
The hotel itself was fine - nothing extremely exciting, just OK. Overpriced. My main complaint is the "shuttle" service. After calling the hotel to come and pick us up, we were told approx 30 - 40 minute wait as it was during "rush hour". My husband and I were fine with that. Here is my complaint: "waiting for a shuttle is absolute caos! You are told to stand on a 3 foot piece of concrete that divides the drop/off lanes for taxis and cars and the hotel shuttle services as well as regular traffic. That is difficult to do with luggage in one hand and 100+ other people waiting for various shuttles just like you. Very confusing. You have to watch for your shuttle and wave them down. Hard to do when the writing for the hotel is on the side of vehicle. Here is my complaint about the Holiday Inn Doral. With all the above being said, we waited for 90 minutes! That's an hour and a half people! Unacceptable! We called 2 more times while waiting and were told, "she's on her way"! We never received the shuttle. After an additional 10 minutes, we grabbed a taxi and had them take us to the hotel. The cost was $25.00! Once we arrived at our hotel and I explained what happened, they were very apologetic and refunded my money. Still not a happy customer.

Stayed for a Convention

Pros: Scenic and more like a resort than a hotel.
Location: Plenty to do and close to everything on the strip.
Excellent stay. The hotel is magnificent and everything you could possibly want is located within the hotel itself from some of the best resturants, to shops, and the meeting rooms were easily accessable. The lobby gives you that "WOW" factor with it's splendor.

Dear Valued Guest, We appreciate the positive feedback provided and would love for the proper hotel to receive it. Unfortunately, this is not our hotel due to the small details of us not having meeting rooms. I'm glad to know you had a wonderful experience at that property and I extend you the invitation on their behalf to welcome you back soon to their hotel. Best Regards, Kenneth Cardona

Overall very good experience

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet, courteous staff
Overall very good experience. Close enough to airport but not too close. Only negative comment was regarding the shuttle service. I informed the staff that I would be dropping the rental and then would need to shuttle back. They said to call when I got to the airport. When I did they said they did not have enough staff to come pick me up and to take a taxi which they would reimburse. They did reimburse me right away but I would have rather had them tell me up front this may happen. That way I would have been prepared to ask for instructions on where to pick up the taxi after the rental car dropoff. Miami airport is not the easiest place to figure out!

Fantastic hotel for good price

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, great staff
This was a great hotel for our budget range -- very clean and nice inside. The staff were SUPER nice, super friendly, very helpful. They went out of their way to meet our needs. At the Miami Airport, we got on a shuttle that was going to the Holiday Inn Express... but we didn't know that there are TWO HIE hotels very close to MIA both on NW 36th street - be sure to stay at the one at 8436 NW 36th St! We got dropped off at the wrong hotel. The staffperson there told us we would have to hire a taxi to take us to the other hotel (~3 or 4 miles away) and offered no help. But then we called the other hotel and explained the mix-up, they sent their shuttle to pick us up! We were so grateful -- traveling with our tired 5 yo daughter. The rooms were very nice, the staff was amazing, and the breakfast was good. I highly recommend this hotel. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Miami.

Beatrice (Betty) is the very best!!!!!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The wait for the free airport shuttle was aprox 1 !/2 hours. There is only one shuttle and they don't run often - very distressing waiting so long. Betty was wonderful and went out of her way to help us in every way possible. The hotel was clean and well located for transport to the cruise lines. The free breakfast was good and well stocked. Everyone very nice
