Faded glory, cheap but not filthy

Posted Feb 26, 2015
Pros: Cleanliness, friendly staff, location.
Cons: Hard mattresses, bland breakfast, unusable wifi.
I spent two nights at the River Park, and my overall experience was quite positive. The staff at the front desk and at the valet parking desk were friendly and helpful. My room was impeccably clean, and had a nice view overlooking the Miami River. The heat and a/c is a quiet central system, not a noisy wall or two-piece unit, but has an in-room thermostat. It kept me comfortable during unusually cold weather. The lobby and reception area look nice, if a bit dated. The location was handy to public transit (Metro Mover stop next door, another across the street, major bus routes within a couple of blocks.) The price was quite reasonable compared to the other hotels in the area, and was as cheap as anything clean that you will find in most of Miami. Of course, not all was wonderful. The free breakfast is plentiful, but flavor-free and largely fruit-free. The scrambled eggs seemed to come from a box, not a hen, and the sausages were bland. The room was a bit small for two double beds, and had no chair to sit in. The wifi had strong signal but was so badly overloaded as to be unusable even for checking email. The TV had no premium channels. The mattresses felt cheap and hard. The faucets at the sink and tub were hard to operate. The decor was painted-over wallpaper. The take-home from all this is that this hotel is a bargain if you are looking for no-frills economy lodging. It is not a cut-rate luxury hotel, nor is it priced like one. I would stay there again.

I would rather sleep on the street!

This hotel is awful! The bathroom was filthy with wall paper being held up with plastic thumb tacks! Yes, THUMB tacks! The wall paper around the bed was stained, the bed was sleeping on plywood and the chair in the room was something out of a 1970s kitchen. When asked to change rooms the staff was very rude and told me they would check to see what was available but of course was unable to move us. Ignore the fact the rate seems like "a great deal for downtown Miami!" I got the same deal at the Hyatt through Expedia. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!!!!

You get what you pay for

Posted Feb 16, 2015
Pros: Great location for my business activity and low room rates
Cons: In need of a remodel/update
Location: On the river, public transportation across the street
The staff were very helpful and the room was clean, but the condition of the building was a problem. Water not very hot, shower drain slow; bed, furniture, Carpet, TV all pretty dated. Better than camping for sure, but don't expect much more than a place to sleep for the night.

Good one night stand

Posted Feb 13, 2015
Pros: Location was convenient to downtown.
Cons: Hotel is showing its age and is in need of additional maintenance.
We reserved a room for one night and was given a suite. The furnishings were basic but OK for one night. I would not be happy staying for a longer time in this suite. Continental breakfast was fine. Plenty of food and drink. Staff was pleasant. Parking was an issue. It was not clear from the website that there was no self-parking, only valet, which was a concession and charged separately from the hotel bill.

In the heart of dowtown, pool over looks port.

Great price on the room. Furnishings are very old & out of date. Facilities need major upkeep, overhaul & modernization. I had no other issues.
