Gracious, pleasant, relaxing -- just what I needed after a very busy summer. . I would have liked a simpler, less complicated breakfast.
The staff were great --- the food in most of the venues (except for the pool area) was outstanding. Very enjoyable We have previously always stayed in Miami Beach. The Biltmore is a bit out of the way in Coral Gables. I would recommend it to those with a car, but not so much to those who don't have this option as it is expensive to get around by cabs. The Biltmore does offer a car service for within Coral Gables, but it was often not available. Also, the difference between a regular hotel room and the Junior or Executive suite in my estimation is not worth the extra amount. It would only be worth it if you upgraded to a full suite.
The structure itself architecuturally is a delight. The service upon arrival was first class and it was a joy to navigate it's various facilities.
Our daughter's fairy tale wedding reception was held here two years ago. My husband and I promised ourselves that we would return for our own romantic stay. We were not disappointed and loved every minute - the luxury, pampering, beautiful grounds, wonderful food. A dream come true!
The hotel itself and its quiet and green surroundings. Pool is excellent. The awful and inadequate service at The Fontana Restaurant in the hotel
This is probably the most beautiful hotel I've ever stayed in, with European elegance at a reasonable price. We had a delicious meal at the "Fontana" restaurant, and the hotel staff was generally excellent. It is the architectural centerpiece of the Coral Gables neighborhood, and within a short drive of "Miracle Mile" shopping. Oh, and self-parking is free! The room was a bit small, but the view was worth it!
The hotel itself is very special and very beautiful. It is a completely unique property, one that is a welcome break from all the chains. Both the food and the service at the restaurants were outstanding. Though nearly everything at the hotel was 4-5 star, the room itself was about a 3 star. It was bland and the quality of the bed, furnishings, towels, decor, etc. seemed cheap.
The rich history of the hotel. No coffee maker in the room.
We love the history, the architecture and the location. We looked forward to this our entire lives! The overall experience was not good. There were no good options for casual dining. Just poolside, with a very limited menu and LOTS of cigar smoke OR the golf club, totally undesirable very man club-ish. We ended up ordering a very pricey pizza and very mediocre Caesar salad in the room. Forget a glass of wine for room service, it was $19.There was grime in the shower exhaust fan and mold on the ceiling shower. ewwww! Some of the property was in disrepair.
champagne sunday brunch nothing
Love the ambiance and staff service. Great place to stay. Not being able to eat breakfast at cascade during the week. Cascade menu should have more choices.
The Biltmore is a wonderful hotel with plenty of amenities and lovely food and service. I was welcomed with a glass of champagne - how wonderful is that?
