Upon arriving I was greeted by a beautiful lady, her name was Phoebe, VERY sweet and wonderful to me I told her if their were more people like her, the world would be a much better place She knows what great customer service is, and she went above and beyond to give that

The check in process was quick This hotel EXCEEDED my expectations The design of the room was BRILLIANT I fell in love with that, you don’t see a different layout too often these days My room was super clean and the air conditioning was wonderful I will always come back to this exact hotel when I return to Miami*My only suggestion would be to consider leaving the pool open a little later for adults, maybe 11:00PM? Just a suggestion, but no complaints I will definitely be back!!!


This was a nice and convenient place next to the airport Would have given it 5 stars but the female receptionist wasn’t welcoming and seemed to be bothered by any interaction or request The first room we were assigned had a leak so we had to move

The maintenance men provided better service than she did and were very accommodating The restaurant was fast, had great food and service The airport shuttle was timely and the gentleman driving it was helpful All in all good other than the receptionist who could use an understanding of customer service

I’d have given five starts if it weren’t for the shower above our room leaking (pouring water) down over our heads while we were in our shower bathing Kinda grossed us out We have video to confirm our statement

Even with this happening had the management offered some sort of discount or refund I’d have given five starts We understand that stuff happens, customer service should have acknowledged it however Other than that, very nice place, excellent bar and food Friendly staff

Beautiful hotel Came here on a volunteer voucher The hotel room is very clean and stunning

Smells incredible and includes all you will need as complimentary little things The pool area is incredible and has a bunch of games for the kiddos on a hidden little area past the laundry mat Very friendly bartender/server I got a chicken Caesar my bf got a Cuban sandwich and coconut shrimp I was craving a salad and it def hit w the chicken The coconut shrimp was bomb and intense flavor w it’s little mango salad on top

Vanny Thach

Everything was nice and modernly designed Comfortable king bed Aestethic lighting

Food was delicious and staff was extremely friendly Very down to earth and better than any hotel I’ve been to so far The only reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars was because the floor I stayed on (6th) reeked of a lingering mildew smell Probably from the carpets being constantly wet from pool-goers? Oh yeah, and the rooftop pool and layout was incredible!

Neil Ledford

I have stayed at hotels over 1000 nights of my lifeThis place is way over priced! I have no issue with paying 500 per night for a room if it warrants thatHotel staff as a whole was catered to Latin community

Even to them, they weren’t exactly helpfulThe breakfast had no real variety Burned croissants, odd breads For $15 breakfast with almost non existent staff, we were much happier at Dennys up the street 3 blocks30 dollar per night parking in a garage that smells like pee The “security” at the gate acted like he only spoke SpanishI have lifetime Mariott rewards at the silver level- but currently Gold member, and I can say you are better off giving this place a hard pass as it’s not worth more than 150 per nightThe thermostat is motion sensitive, installed directly next to the bed Our group was woken up probably 20 times per night from that aloneThe sheets were always a bit damp from the humidity The decor- they were selling paintings they were putting up during breakfastA truly odd experience

Nice area However closet space one 🌟 Over all the lighting 2 stars It would be nice to actually have lighting in the shower

I dropped down the rating as I just checked my bill and saw a additional expense I called Hyde Midtown It seems they were missing a mini bar item The day I check out I spoke with management and ask for them to look into their own personel to have made sure all items were there when I check in, or if it was the same person replenishing and taking the items For this dishonesty in-house I am no longer happy with the experience of me staying at Hyde Park Midtown It could have been a honest mistake However I am not paying a extra $60 because someone decided to pull a fast one Specially when my room was left in immaculate condition

Chellee Littlejohn

My husband and I had the best experience at this hotel We only stayed 2 nights but could not have been happier with the experience We stayed in a suite and it was perfect and beautiful

The pool is fantastic But most importantly the people are some of the most impressive I’ve witnessed in the hospitality industry Post Covid it can be difficult to find truly service driven representatives Those that take pride in their job meanwhile providing a top notch experience to their customers We found that here and the star of the show was Marilyn at the front desk Overall this neighborhood is adorable offering one the chance to take in all that Miami has to offer with many things in walking distance or a short Uber ride away I recommend checking out Wynwood A beautifully fun and artistic up and coming neighborhood very near to this hotel Thank you again Hyde Suites

Ellie Cachette

Zero customer service Overpriced They will charge your card $150 per night authorization, as well as $22 a day resort fee atop of this and not refund your authorization if you don’t eat or use it

When you ask staff for any type or help they will become unpleasant and simply say “they don’t know”Save yourself $200+ extra a night in fees and skip this place

Lowane Emerald

Nice place to stay Calm neighborhood in general But the wall are thin like paper and unfortunately, my daughter and I has to deal with an arguing couple noises all night long

We felt like we were in the same house😔 The kitchen is full option, the place was very clean and comfy Didn’t like the bed but it’s just a question of taste There are buses stops around, some food markets 8 min away at feet


From start to finish, staying here was seamless! We got the code for the lock box well before check in time and we were able to check in and out with no interaction with others Towels, shampoo, and body wash are provided and the room has many provided amenities Our only complaint was that the walls were extremely thin and we could hear every word our neighbor was saying as well as when they were using their television

Just take that into consideration as it resulted in lost sleep for us

Turney Maurer

I stayed at Cottages El Portal while I had to host several presentations throughout Miami/Naples/Boca Raton for the week It was the perfect location to get anywhere, and the neighborhood was very quiet Made sleeping at night easy especially with the AC unit by the window next to the bed

My room had a full kitchen so I was able to go get groceries down the street, like a 5 minute drive away I would highly recommend staying here if you’re looking for a lowkey stay in a cool, authentic Miami neighborhood with gyms, great restaurants, and everything else you need nearby

Jonathan Anderson

We love this place Great location for those early flights Pool is a hit with the kids, often quite busy however

Clean modern rooms with lots of space and good wifi! Pet fees range from $75-150 (seems high for the location) La Quinta is right next door with cheaper fees if your looking to save Lastly you’re going to hear airplanes all day and into the night Not a complaint but a reality of the location

wilbert negron

Pros – friendly staff, clean rooms, close to airport, decent breakfast, ample roomsCons – no shuttle bus to airport, no room serviceOverall, it’s a great hotel for a great price It is an airport hotel so if you will hear airplanes every so often (Not a bother to me) I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone

Tom Hegewald

The worst Hyatt I’ve ever stayed in For over 220$ a night we got a room for disabled people which had a super gross shower that didn’t work It was not 100% clean and it’s unbelievably loud from outside

We had another hotel here on the airport before which didn’t have any noise from outside The room had two separate small beds instead of a bed for a couple which is unbelievable for this price and It also ruined our last day of vacation here The breakfast is even worst because it’s served on small plastic plates which plastic cutlery… Do your self a favor and don’t book this hotel!

Great friendly staff and centric hotel near to airport and downtown Miami High ceilings and modern decoration with some rustic cement exposed makes the look unique Beautiful bathrooms

It even has a free pool table at the lobby Just love it! Recommended for business of vacations For my photography interest, this is a perfect spot to move around Miami Here for business, but enjoying very much the stay

Rachel Rowan

I travel weekly for work and it’s really disappointing when they say the bar is open with pizza and wings and then the bartender would rather be on his phone then make wings I went to the market to get a frozen burrito and what I assume was the manager said he didn’t have the oven on but then said she would make me wings So the oven was on? I don’t get it

He said they ran out last night… so unprofessional You are there to work and you are getting paid I truly don’t ask for much but clearly at this location I interrupted their selfies at work Horrible experience The manager sends emails daily about feedback but do they really care? Rooms were industrial which made it loud and you could hear everything Little sleep Horrible management that “made it right” yet encouraged poor behavior of their staff Where’s accountability these days?? I’d rather you just tell me no food than all of that after an extremely long day Then she has the audacity to say “the wings are better than the frozen food right?” Well duh, that’s what I originally ordered So you deserve a compliment for doing your bartenders job? Extremely annoying Don’t care for a response from them just felt others need to know Choose wisely because some just think you travel and choose them like your money doesn’t matter

Michael Spencer

I enjoyed the stay The location was convenient (Close to Miami airport, restaurants, shopping, and about 30 minutes from South Beach by car)I would stay there again

My only complaint was that the shower door was poorly designed/installed The bathroom floor would get very wet after a shower

Robert Mcmillian

Very large and nice looking room, but when A/c was off room smelled of smoke, and bed was rock hard I slept well as I do anywhere but my wife had a rough couple of nights We did advise staff of smell and they were prepared to apply some kind of deodorizer but I told them it was fine as A/c was effective in removing it while we were there

All round staff was great with every encounter Was located conveniently close to where we were working

Christina Steier

The hotel was clean and modern The price was reasonable I was slight taken aback by the fact that nobody came in to clean the room between nights because I haven’t traveled in awhile but the party I met for work advised that this is the new norm which I’m ok with

My only suggestions would be to offer a restaurant and rethink the bathroom cabinetry First, there were dining options a short drive away and some basic snacks in the lobby Breakfast was offered and good, but a dinner option would have been nice since it was a work trip and I needed to attend to some business in the evening Finally, it would be best if the faux door fronts in the bathroom didn’t have handles on them They looked like doors which I attempted to open The decorative panel came down when I pulled on it and struck by bare toe It was painful and then mildly sore for a few days, but was an unnecessary injury Overall, the stay was good and comfortable

Aubrey Devine

Chose this Marriott property due to proximity for a business trip It was apparent from check-in that management doesn’t care about the property or customer experience Lobby items like grab & go areas were empty, only one elevator worked, mini fridge wouldn’t lower below room temp, shower items like shampoo and conditioner were not only empty but the canisters were removed entirely, and the linens and towels weren’t cleaned between guests

I found multiple types of hairs in towels and sheets Tried to make it work as I’d had a long day and an early morning Asked twice for a clean set of sheets to be sent to my room Both times sheets were too small I decided not to stay and went next door to Hampton Inn Front desk told me to call the manager tomorrow regarding billing Spoke to GM Fernando, who told me the room was 100% non-refundable even though I checked in 4 hours ago and was not staying the night Period I’ve never been so disappointed in Marriott, and will be removing this property from our corporate group booking option

tasha haylock

The guy at the front counter very nice, however according to him he was the only on duty that night Our room AC was set on fan and I could not adjust/change the settings (room never got cold), the TV would NOT come on at all, we unplugged it and try a different outlet and it never came on, they did NOT have toiletries as they were completely out (front desk guy stated) and we was never offered to change rooms Will definitely NOT be staying there again


No hot water in shower or sink, called front desk twice- no answer- went down to front desk no customers around Front desk lady was unhelpful, unfriendly and acknowledged they knew that there are numerous rooms that the hot water doesn’t work Refused to offer us any compensation for our troubles, wouldn’t switch rooms when I requested it, stating, “ I don’t know what other rooms don’t have hot water…” she stated that other customers are having hot water issues as well

So they are aware, yet, not offering compensation for their problems Hotel old and dated, photos look better than in person, very loud room…next to freeway and loud elevator, mold in shower on ceiling and walls Dark, poorly lit hallways and rooms need attention and updating Outdoor pool is freezing cold Workout room is lacking, only one machine functioned (when I tried all four)Front Staff unwelcoming and unfriendly Didn’t welcome me or acknowledge me as a reward points member- I had to ask at check out if I was given my points Not the greatest area, very far away from the airport & no hotel shuttle as advertised on their website For the price we paid, very poor value Would NOT recommend staying here Worst Holiday Inn property we’ve ever stayed at, we are frequent travelers I choose Holiday Inn properties for their reputation, this hotel doesn’t fit the Holiday Inn standards Find someplace else

shannon Conway

This hotel service is terrible Do not recommend staying here You should not put your diamond elite customers in the rooms that have no hot water

Then tell them oh sorry it’s something we can note, but there is nothing we can do Then when you ask for a hair dryer 3 times and you say ok no problem and it never comes I don’t usually post bad reviews but I do expect a hotel to make traveling for work suck less, not more I don’t think that’s asking too much

Listen, to these reviews they are not lying I wish I would have took my times , to read these reviews before booking with them First of all I have an encountered with one Spanish guy this guy has refused to accommodate my stay

Second red flags I don’t care if you are a guest or not we don’t care at all I called asking for some towels and wash cloth the receptionist didn’t even let me finish my sentence he said no I paid $400+ for my stay you mean you don’t have an extra person to assist the guest if they need something The red flag is there staffs doesn’t care about you as guests I will not book there anymore Please do yourself a favor book somewhere else People work way to hard for there money to be treated as such

Michael Tien

3 night stay, had 2 issues with staff 1 Housekeeping staff came to knock on our door 30 minutes before noon (check out time at noon)

The staff did not speak English had hard a time understanding what I was advising her, that we are still packing and will be checking out in about 15-20 minutes This is still United States (Florida), am I the minority who speak English as a foreign language Hilton needs to do better for their guests and their staff, this interaction was an embarrassment for me not being able to communicate with hotel staff 2 The day we checked in, I had to get a ride to the airport, the driver for the hotel almost got into an traffic accident and scared two elderly couple, and tge drive made the excuse “that’s Miami” He was aggressive in driving us to the airport, even high speed turns, lane changes and cutting other vehicles off Be careful when you get in their vehicle going to and from the airport

Michael Meyer

airport shuttle was overcrowded at 1am, and instead of coming right back to pick ip the rest, they told us to wait another hour for the regular schedule, so we had to take a cab as far as the actual hotel, for $200 a night, you can do a lot better…update, the bed was cozy, continental breakfast was not free, theres worse places out there…

Wow! What a beautiful hotel It was very nice and clean Very modern and contemporary feel

The pool is amazing in the back The staff is so pleasant and will help you at all hours of the night The airport is minutes away, close to all gas stations and all amenities A special thank you to Juan the GM Excellent experience and my family and I will be back for sure!

The stay was good for the most part We were out most of the day so we basically just came back to the hotel to change or sleep The pool didn’t seem as clean as I would’ve expected and some of my friends felt that it was salty? We were missing a hair dryer, but that probably could’ve been fixed by going up front to ask for one

Free breakfast was nice The hotel is very close to the airport so that made our early flight out a lot easier With traffic, the beach/downtown areas were about 40 mins Oh and parking is $2000 PER night so definitely keep that in mind! Overall this hotel was good, and i would consider to stay here again

Stephanie Latta

We’d stayed at an Element in Utah, and the experience there had me very excited to try the Element in Miami I can only conclude from other reviews that this hotel exists in two dimensions Unfortunately, we ended up in the darkest timeline

“OK“ is a generous review for the alternate dimension in which we ended up It was late at night when we arrived Even later than it should have been with the very late shuttle – it’s apparent now the other dimension gets the on-time shuttle The room layout was great, the bed semi-comfortable, and a local overpriced, under-whelming pizza joint delivered At 11 pm, that was important It was also the best part of our stay The first room we were given was dirty Towels stuffed into the rack behind the door, dirty counters, hair, and dust all over the floor dirty The hotel moved us ThankfullyThe second room was cleaner than the first but not much cleaner In the darkest timeline, the hotel looks old inside and out, and the staff is tired So very tired The pandemic has hit double hard in this alternate dimension I was scared we’d hit this dimension on our return stay, so I quickly changed my reservation to the Residence Inn, where we had a great stay To those considering a stay at this Element, may be odds be ever in your favor

Happy Girl

The room looked nice However, there were dozens of small black bugs by the sink and coffee machine We asked to move to another room

The second room on another floor had the same issue The third room we got moved to still had the bugs but less of them They were also at the front desk I’m dissatisfied with this location due to the bugs and now I don’t feel comfortable eating the breakfast there since there are bugs on that floor too Not a good experience

Jennifer AMADOR

The hotel is a very nice place, the rooms are huge This is a pet friendly hotel they need to tell guests they are staying in a pet friendly floor or room

I had to ask if there were animals in the room as I am allergic to pet hair and dander I was wheezing and coughing the whole visit, I literally went through a whole inhaler I just feel they should notify guests or ask if they are ok staying in a room that has had animals stay

We traveled to Miami are for a wedding, I booked at The Stadium When we first pulled up I was a little worried As we usually stay at Marriott when we travel

This hotel is well kept, a little aged but has had many updates The staff was amazing and you can tell they take pride in their work Our room was clean and there are staff constantly cleaning wiping things down in common areas Continental breakfast was nice and fresh, Everything tasted really good They have staff continually monitoring the hotel and outside area which made me feel even more safe and comfortable for a first time trip to Miami Pool was nice and they have mini golf as well Would highly recommend for a stay and would definitely return for a stay


Perfect stay during the F1 weekend! Staff was next level and went above and beyond for race fans Race decor was over the top in the best way possible and made the experience so much more fun and enjoyable Walking distance to the stadium, the best provided breakfasts fuel long days, and a place to comfortably sleep despite thin walls

Everyone working from reception, housekeeping, security, grounds, and even staff helping serve breakfast actually looked and were approachable in the sense that they were having a good time and were happy to be there or at least did a great job appearing to be! Everyone came off genuine and so nice! Absolutely loved all the posters/flags and decor from the columns outside, the hanging driver cards from the ceilings to the decorated breakfast 9th floor decked out Overheard presumably managers speaking to staff on what channels to have the TVs on and making sure things were stocked and clean for fans The small details and attention for the guests/fans So much so fans were given a complimentary clear bag permitted in the stadium with sealed waters and other goodies Completely unwarranted and sweet! The Miami GP was okay, but this place made the stay and overall experience much better Almost didn’t want to leave the review afraid that this place will skyrocket for the next GP, but all their effort over the weekend deserves the recognition – I can’t say enough This place knocked it out of the park on the FIRST F1 event held here Do note that walking distance may not be for everyone especially in the heat There were shuttles available that didn’t come across worth needing

Very clean hotel The room were dating with some signs of aging but overall great We had a corner balcony and it delivered on the view

The resort kind of reminded me of a Disney All-Star minus the Mickey’s This one would be All-Star NFL has it is themed after the stadium located right in front Check in and check out were smooth Employees took care of our every requests Room service was not very efficient as we had to get our food order from the lobby but beside that hiccup, its a nice propertyThe breakfast is offered on the top floor with an amazing view It also offer an outside deck to have breakfast in the sunMy only downside and it is not one the hotel can fix, are the vehicles noise, it is very close to the highway and therefore you get the noise The streets around are also very busy which really doesn’t help The pool and mini-golf level are shielded from the noise and can be a tad more relaxing but on the balcony it was very loud at timesWe will be back as it is a great property I can’t imagine on game weekends, it must be crazy!

I really liked the hotel once we actually got our room Very nice scenery around hotel but the weather was bad and we didn’t get any pictures The cleaning staff took to long to clean the rooms so even at 3, they still weren’t clean, waited till 4 for actual check in and it still wasn’t ready

We got checked in around 420, I just think the cleaning staff needs to be more attentive and finished cleaning at a certain time but definitely worth my stay I will return

We liked this hotel BUT1 Reserved a room with a balcony Arrived to find that we were not given a balcony, instead we were given a “patio”

Not the same Our request to be moved to a balcony was denied2 Woken at 6:30 am by staff in the hallway making an absolute racket for 30 minutes3 There has been someone power washing the pool area since 8:45 Extremely loud Not exactly relaxing

I remember when this was the Don Shula hotel I grew up just a few blocks from here and it was so cool to stay here It still is, this was a wonderful experience

The housekeeping was great, the room was comfortable, and that bed was the best sleep I’ve had on this trip The front desk was perfect Raphael was kind, courteous, and charming From the point where I checked in all the way to my check out The Miami lakes hotel was trying to make my trip that much better Next time I come to south Florida I’ll be coming here again
