Rated 3 out of 5 by KC537 The staff did not seem concerned with my needs
The first night myself and a lifetime platinum member whom I was traveling with did not have adequate heating in our rooms. It took my friend to call the property Mgr. to have his situation satisfied, yet when I explained I had the same problem I was brushed off and no one came to my room to even look at the problem. I will be staying in Miami again but not sure if I will give you another opportunity to improve your service. I also one day will have the capacity to become a life time platinum member but maybe I will try other accommodations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SmithM78 Worst SPG Property So Far
The only reason to stay here is for a long layover. It is a truly disappointing property. My room had mold throughout the showers. Restaurant service was terrible. The tiny pool backs up to a smelly canal. The lobby is disgusting. Parking is $16.05 per day, even if you park your own car.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sidhi This hotel is technically challenged
The thermostat was malfunctioning.
I reported the issue at 1 AM on my 3rd night.
They offered to change the room . I couldn't change the room as the kids were asleep.
The next day morning they sent an engineer.
He did something to make the Thermostat to work. The thermostat fan was always on and high . I finally switched it off as the noise was unbearable . Even though the fan was set on auto mode. It affected my sleep for two nights. I tried meeting the manager during check out to give the feedback and he was unavailable.
Secondly, the tub faucet was leaking. It's no inconvenience to me . But i couldn't watch water being wasted. I reported and the issue was not fixed during my stay..

Rated 2 out of 5 by gicmaster Last time in this hotel
This is my fifth time (and last one) in this hotel. Reason for that is that I got charged per day and per package that I previously delivered. I was never charged for this before, even though I'm a SPG member since 2006, and always tried to stay in the Sheraton chain. Apparently this is a new policy, according to the staff.
So be aware if you are planning to buy something from Amazon.

I have had the pleasure to stay at this property several times this year. The entire staff, from the GM on down, are all highly professional, friendly and very accomodating to my needs.
The suite I was given was beyond expectations. The Club Lounge provided excellent morning and evening choices. The property location, on a river accross from a golf course, is very attractive. The fitness center contains all the equipment one could need. Even though the hotel is located in proximity to Miami Airport, we rarely heard any plane traffic !!
In addition, the restaurant, Rickenbecker, has an excellent menu and first rate food.
I look forwaed to many more visits.

Checked in on a Thursday night. Front desk acknowledged my Platinum status, but no upgrade was offered -- haven't stayed here before so don't know if upgrades are frequent/infrequent. Room (1050) was perfectly acceptable and reasonably renovated. Very little noise from airport. One drawback was an ineffective HVAC unit that never got the room cool. Room service was delivered late, but the food was reasonably well prepared.
Did not receive a wake up call despite the prior evening's request. Next discovered that the shower was broken and could not be turned on. Housekeeping clearly didn't care enough to report it. When I told the front desk, I was simply thanked for pointing it out. No offer to have it fixed, my room changed, or any help of any kind. That type of indifferent and failed service is why I will neither recommend or stay at this hotel again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Frankgum1 Hotel and staff need improvement
Check in person was not helpful and it seemed to me it pained her to help. Did not get the room I requested and she made no attempt to help. Room was dirty and on second day was not cleaned till very late in the day and still did not supply all items.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bentley03 Staff was unfriendly and room was dirty
I reserved a handicap room, wheelchair accessible and a roll in shower. I arrived at the hotel at 5:30pm and they gave us our room. It wasn't handicap accessible so I had to go back to front desk to get another room. They give us another room that was supposed to be handicap accessible and when we went into room, the bell boy had to rearrange furniture because a wheel chair wouldn't fit past chair near the entre way. Then I looked in the bathroom and there was a tub that wasn't handicap accessible. So I went back to the lobby again and they said, oh, well the room you were supposed to have isn't clean yet so you will have to wait. We waited an hour and a half for the room to be available, bringing us to 8pm...a two and a half hour wait for our room. The hotel staff was rude and unapologetic and said well, what do you want us to do about it, your just going to have to wait. Who knew that it takes a cleaning lady 1.5 hours to clean a room to should have been ready for us at 3pm. When we finally got into our room, there was no shampoo so we called to the front desk for shampoo and then went to the restaurant to eat. The food was terrible. French onion soup wasn't edible, the hamburger was dry, and the caprese salad was mainly green leaves. Went back up to our room to see shampoo bottles thrown on the ground from house keeping. SERIOUSLY??? I will never stay here again.
