Cute boutique hotel in Coral GablesPosted Nov 23, 2015
Staff is friendly, love the historical feel, close to restaurants & shops, but the walls are very thin, the early risers are very annoying.

Old World Charm Mediterranean ElegancePosted Oct 20, 2015
Pros: The unique atmosphere and the proximity to local attractions.
Cons: The antique upholstered furniture in our room could use a deep cleaning.
Location: There are many activities nearby including shops, restaurants, botanical gardens, parks, etc.
Between the beautiful and colorful tile craftsmanship throughout the vaulted ceiling lobby and the unique antique filled hallways and guest rooms are gorgeous framed paintings. Stepping into the magnificent Otis elevator with bronze manual crank, bronze gate and bronze plate light fixture is like stepping back into the 1920's. The brass fixtures, hardware, the trim and the rich interior millwork is impressive and elegant. All in all it was one of the most charming, boutique hotels from the heyday of the 1920's commercial boom in Coral Gables history. We loved it and would definitely return.

Nice hotel close to amenities and Univ. of MiamiPosted Oct 5, 2015
Pros: The rooms were quaint and staff was very friendly.
Cons: Hardwood floors are nice but tend to be a bit loud. Area rugs could provide some dampening of the noise.
Location: Hotel is close to Miracle mile shopping and restaurants. Hotel is relatively convenient to University of Miami for visiting parents.
If you are looking for newest and high tech amenities, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for quaint rooms with a unique flair and charm as well as courteous staff and service, then this is the place for you.

Unique but noisyPosted Sep 13, 2015
Pros: Price point, free breakfast, ability to open windows. Proximity to MIA, great restaurants & other amenities are a plus. Location, Location, Location!
Cons: Better lighting, refreshing the décor especially the bed linens to brighten/modernize this eclectic space would add volumes to the overall experience!
Location: proximity to high end shopping, great variety of restaurants, ability to walk about safely and
The rooms are very small, dark and a bit cluttered; bed and the numerous pillows were not very comfortable. It would be great to have a choice of pillow (firm/soft) especially given that there were 4 on a queen sized bed. Although there is a full bath tub, the bathroom is also poorly organized; overall poor lighting throughout the room and bathroom; very noisy from the interior surprisingly not from street noise

Inexpensive with Some CharmPosted Aug 25, 2015 on Hotels
I chose the Hotel St. Michel because I needed a one-night stay while getting my son settled at UMiami. Hotels.com offered an attractive rate, particularly for Coral Gables, which can be expensive. (I paid $109/night plus there was a $14 parking fee, which is typical for Miami hotels.) This hotel definitely has some charm - the elevator is original to the 1920s building and a staff member operates it with a crank. There's some nice tile work both on the exterior and interior of the building. Our room (room 309) was too flowery for our taste (it looked like my grandmother's bedroom) but the bed was comfortable. Pillows were very hard, wish I had brought my own. You get the sense that ghosts may walk the hallways at nice, but we didn't feel like any of them were of The Shining variety. ;) A definite plus is that the hotel is within easy walking distance of the Miracle Mile with tons of shops and restaurants. We ate at Fratellini's, highly recommended. This hotel was just fine for a short stay, though I would not choose it if I were planning an entire vacation in the area.

Great little hideaway hotel.Posted Aug 18, 2015 on Hotels
I love this hotel--it's like staying in your grandmother's guest room. It's comfortable, historic and in a great (mostly quiet) location. The only complaint is the restaurant downstairs blasted music onto the sidewalk and we could hear it in our room but they stopped around midnight I think. (The restaurant itself was really good and I recommend it). I will definitely stay here again--the price is right and it's such a great little hideaway hotel.

No staff to talk to about how to get to hotel.Posted Aug 13, 2015
What's the point!!!! I have filled out 4 of these reports and you keep rejecting them and do nothing to fix the problem I experience. My experience was horrible and stupid. All because there was not a real person to speak to at the hotel.
