"Inconvenient and weird!"
I stayed in this hotel a total of 3 nights on the front and back end of another tour. Considering the many hotels I have stayed in worldwide, this takes the prize for the strangest. First you have to find it--signage is poor and when you find it you walk into an empty lobby, then you must take an elevator to the second floor to find the lobby. Then you take a separate elevator to find your room. On the plus side the rooms aren't bad, but are obviously a hasty makeover of an old Westin. For example, still an old tub shower rather than walk-in. The hotel has no restaurant except for breakfast from 7-11 am. You have to order room service which is expensive and cold I'd you are hoping to stay in the hotel. No liquor in the room that I could see only beer and wine. If you want a cocktail, it's in the room with games and pool tables. By the way Miracle Mile is restaurants and bridal shops. There is a trolley a half block away to a nearby outdoor shopping mall. It is about 20 minutes to airport and about $8.00 uber xpress.
"Nice Hotel...Great Location"
This was my 2nd stay at the Colonnade and it was great. I upgraded to a Miracle Suite which offers a king bed, large sitting area and a full size dining/work table. The property has been recently upgraded and looks very nice. The breakfast dining room offers an excellent buffet or a la carte menu. The staff were very friendly and accommodating on both visits. Valet parking is a breeze. I highly recommend this hotel in Coral Gables - the location is fantastic for being able to walk to many first class restaurants.
"Old World Charm"
This hotel has tons of character and charm. Renovated but still retains the character and feel of the 1920s architecture that I love. It's right in the middle of historic Coral Gables so there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, which is nice considering the horrible traffic in Miami. The common areas-lobby, dining room, etc.,are exquisitely designed and furnished. I was really surprised at the low room price considering what we got for it. (Around $150 per night). The included breakfast is more modest than the spectacular buffets abroad but adequate. The bedding and linens were good quality and the room was extremely clean. We were upgraded to a suite. The only complaint I have is just a matter of taste. While the room was beautiful it really didn't function well for us. The bed was downstairs with a TV and a bathroom and the rest of the suite was up a spiral staircase-which had a really cute bunk bed and seating area with another TV and bathroom. I would have preferred just to have one large room. Also it's an old building so the walls were thin and we could hear more than I would have liked.
This chique hotel is located in the heart of Coral Gables near the best steakhouses and nightlife...nice rooms and friendly staff...the only downside, valet or a nearby parking building that costs almost the same as valet...I would not mind staying here again.
For the price, expect better amenities & service, Rquested a handicap accessible room as I just had foot surgery and was on crutches. Was told they did not have any at check in and was put in a room a long way from the elevators. Reserved a suite, and AC return was right next to the bed, and the noise made it difficult to sleep. As a result had to turn off the AC the second night.
