Rated 5 out of 5 by Fryguy Excellent Business Hotel
I stayed here for a business trip a few weeks ago and it served it purpose well. The bed was comfortable, the hotel conveniently located to a walkable street with lots of stores and restaurants to choose from, and the staff was great. My only negative was that noisy A/C unit. Every time that unit turned on it woke me up. Simply turning it off fixed the problem but then it got a little warm in my room. Ultimately it did not bother me that much and I still enjoyed my stay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointedtravelers Only stay here if you do not want to sleep
We had low expectations for this hotel, and it even fell below that.
Between the constant noise from both within the hotel and early beeping from the street, we were robbed of any night's rest. In addition, maid service was inconsistent and didn't even come one day.
There are no SPG perks at this hotel, and it was insulting that as an SPG member we would be put in such a terrible spot in the hotel.
We will never stay at this hotel again and have even discussed canceling our SPG number due to our experience. This hotel could not even provide the basic amenities standard at any level hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Schnutzle23 Amazing experience, exceeded my expectations
The hotel was easy to find and located just 15 minutes from the airport. The Westin offers valet parking and you can come in and out as often as you'd like, although it was pricier than I'd like. If you value convience over value then go for the valet parking, but if you value getting a bang for your buck just park on the street for a couple of dollars instead of $24-$26 for valet. The location is just walking distance from restaurants, I was so pleased to eat at 100 Montaditos! Just like in Spain!!
The food served in Westin seriously exceeded my expectations, the food we ordered for room service was fresh, texturally rich, and delicious! I wish I could eat this food everyday!! We had a suite and ate our meal on the roof, which overlooked the city. That alone was such an experience. The staff took care of our dishes we left outside. I really recommend this for couples because it feels so much more private than eating in the often crowded Sushi Samba, located on the ground floor.
The rooftop has a pool, heated pool, beautiful lounge area (which could use just a little bit of maintenance), and gorgeous view of the city. On an architectural standpoint it felt like we were in Madrid, Spain. I felt like we were truely on vacation, which was awesome.
The balcony king suite that we stayed in was simply immaculate. The house keeping really take their jobs seriously, from the crisp sheets to the floor. Being here made me feel I was home away from home. The way the suite was designed felt a bit separated in two since there was a flat screen tv by the bed and a flat screen tv by the couch, which is nice if a couple can't agree on one thing to view!
I loved Westin's Heavenly Spa products! Surely this detail is important to guests, it made me feel so refreshed after a day of traveling. The refreshments in our suite included Starbucks coffee and 2 bottles of water, that was a boost to our stay!
I truely enjoyed my stay at the Westin and will be returning to this hotel next time in Miami!!

We visit family in Miami and the Westin Colonnade is our hotel of choice for our visits. We need a place to relax after our marathon visits. It is a place you can go to be alone, to get away from it all, but in walking and easy driving distance to anything you need. We go often enough that the staff always remembers us, which makes us feel like we are returning home. Only downside is that there are always weddings and events at this hotel and the hallways can be loud at night sometimes at the end of events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie7 This Hotel Is Fabulous
Our experience at the Westin Colonnade in Coral Gables, FL. was just fabulous!!!! The beds are so comfortable, our room was bigger than normal size and it was so quiet in our room, yet the hotel was packed with people since there was a wedding that weekend. We had a beautiful room that faced the white outdoor furniture. Room 234. You felt like you were at some Caribbean Resort on the beach. Beyond that a gorgeous view of the city. To the left a very inviting pool. Humberto, one of the concierge told us about a great restaurant called Ladorada within walking distance and it was probably one of the best restaurants we've ever been to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by robocane Another GREAT Stay !!
My wife and I and our extended family stayed at the Westin Colonnade and once again enjoyed our visit! We have stayed here MANY times in the past and were again in Coral Gables for a UM event on Saturday and Sunday. The Colonnade is convenient to campus and located directly on Miracle Mile with many great resturants and shopping and overall a wonderful hotel. We are especially grateful for Joaquin Pastora the head Concierge. Each time we see him he treats us so wonderfully ! I have never seen anyone better at his job than Joaquin and he is a real asset to this hotel. Also impressed with Umberto who was also a great help to our family during our visit. We will definitely be back to the Colonnade!

We were really disappointed in this Westin. Each night of our stay there were weddings in the hotel. To enter the hotel we had to step over/around cigarette butts and trash, which remained there, unswept throughout the entire weekend of our visit. On Friday night we had to step around vomit to get into the Sushi Samba restaurant located in the lobby of the hotel. The room itself was only moderately clean and had terrible ventilation, we were all coughing and clearing our throats all weekend, and the room smelled musty. This hotel was simply not worth the price we paid and certainly did not live up to what we have come to expect from Westin. I am a UM parent and frequently visit Coral Gables, I will definitely seek alternative accomodations next time.
