Well I know this hotel for over 50 years and say that it is a truly a shame that the hotel management and the city of coral gables would allow this hotel to fall into such a state of disrepair and uninhabitable conditions is just a shame. This hotel needs to be shut down gutted and one day returned to its natural grandeur and elegance. However, right now it's disgusting. The rooms smell from mildew the water pressure is a trickle, the golf course is a rat trap, the furniture is disgusting, all of it needs to be replaced, as well as all of the windows, the doors, and quite simply the entire hotel needs to be gutted. I grew up not far from this hotel and had my high Scholl graduation prom here over 40 years ago and opened it after it was hut down for many years. The city of coral gables has no business owning this facility, and should immediately divest it by public auction. A true and high end 5 star operator needs to come in and shut it down and spend at least $200,000,000 rehabbing it. Until then avoid this pace its become a wedding haven and the windows and doors are so thin you will be kept up all night with loud music and screaming party goers. Plain and simple stay away its horrible.
"Not a quiet spa"
I love to spa and live in Miami. The prices are great but the ladies dressing room is quieter than the relaxation room. The Houstonian in Houston TX does it right. They have a NO TALKING relaxation room. No fun to listen to old ladies talk. Massages are great here but if you are looking for the silent recharge - this is not the place for it unless like me you end up on the padded benches in the ladies changing room.
"Golf in the Morning. "
Great old short well maintained golf course. A Donald Ross designed Built in 1925 has the old world charm and mature feel and look to it. Wish they had better club rentals though. Take you own clubs to enjoy the course.
""Wow" says it all!"
"Wow says it all," was not expecting such a gorgeous hotel. The people were wonderful, from the bellmen to the concierge to the front desk and wait staff at the restaurants. Was there for a meeting when I returned home told my wife this was one place we had to go back to so she could experience it. I have traveled a lot and stayed in a lot of places over the years, and the Biltmore in Coral Gables is one of my favorites. And to top it off, the bed was so comfortable ( many times the amazingly charming hotels have okay beds). Walked to nearby Miracle Mile with great restaurants.
"Elegant stay in Coral Gables!"
Wonderful 1926 built luxury hotel in Coral Gables, FL! Really nice Dennis Ross golf course. Delicious prix-fixe restaurant for 6 and 11 chef's choice specialties $115 to 150. Breakfast is Included in a lovely courtyard. The hotel was built with the world's largest swimming pool in 1926 which now ranks 3rd largest. Enjoy your stay
