Historical Traveller Reviews of Biltmore hotel Hotel
dissapointing version of Gotham cityfrom osvaldo68
The famous "biggest pool in America" that the hotel boasts to have is highly inconvenient. There's no enough sitting place around the pool, and the "lodges" are outrageously expensive (besides being in the shade).
Air conditioning is generally too cold and in the rooms, the commands of the A/C is hard to set.
Rooms are small (up to the point that they have just one night table).
The decor is certainly special, but too kitsch, even scary. One feels in Gotham city. There's nothing adapted to children or babies.
The amenities of the hotel rooms are basic and the bathrooms small.
The staff is friendly and helpful, but in sum, it's a good hotel to go to a conference or a dinner, but not to spend vacation time.
We'd go back for tea, but we'll avoid staying there in teh future.
Better than everfrom Welshquin
The service was again impecable from the moment we arrived at check-in to be greeted with a glass of Champagne. The Biltmore is the standard by which customer service is set. Without exception the staff were courteous and helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble.
Check out the complimentary carriage ride, which we only discovered by chance. A half hour tour of Coral Gables in a horse drawn carriage - WOW!
Room service (supper and breakfast) was excellent value and the service was better than we've experienced in some restaurants.
Dinner in the Palme D'Or was a wonderful experience and highly recommended.
Sunday Brunch was superb and we were sorry that we were not able to eat more! Undoubtedly the best Sunday Brunch we've ever had.
As you can probably guess, I can't praise the Biltmore enough.
High expectations - many disappointmentsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel, however, did have some redeeming qualities. The king sized beds were very comfortable, the pool and fitness centers were outstanding, and the Sunday Champagne Brunch was excellent. Unfortunately, these positive attributes were not sufficient to make up for the other flaws. Accordingly, I doubt we will return anytime soon - unless its exclusively for Sunday Brunch.
A FAbulous Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The Palme D'or meal we had was excellent. We would return without any hesitation and its location to other tourist sites make it a perfect haven to come back to. Even with different functions taking place the hotel never seems to be crowded. A very good part of our vacation!
Take a break from the Chain Experience!!!from Patiod
Rising up from the surrounding suburban neighborhood is a gorgeous Spanish-style 1920's palace. You pull up to the grand entrance, and parking is either valet or self (free self parking, a disappearing amenity!) The lobby is jaw-dropping, with inside balconies, painted ceilings, and two giant birdcages with finches occupying prime real estate (I'd love to see THAT at a Marriott!) My room was average size, with a bed, as one reviewer mentioned, that surpasses the "Heavenly Bed" and a turn-down service is almost a second cleaning - not just a mint on the pillow. Another pleasant surprise - the room had one of the few balconies, so I could have a glass of wine and look over golf course, much of Coral Gables, and all the way to Miami Beach. The 1200 Courtyard Grill felt like Italy or Spain - and while the locals sit inside in the a/c, we tourists enjoy the heat & humidity & fountain, and we all get amazing (and amazingly high-priced) food. The snapper was perfect.
The only thing that prevents an "Excellent" rating is the appalling pool service - maybe because it was overcast and few people were at the pool, but no one offered me a towel or chair pad either time I was at the pool, and the attendent claimed he didn't know where to get the pads - I had to go get my towel at the health club (biggest, newest club I've ever seen at a hotel - and FREE, unlike many greedy Westins). But note to Biltmore: if you're going to charge $12 for a marguerita, a tiny plastic cup doesn't cut it.
Awesome Stay at the Biltmore Hotelfrom LYFB
The pinnacle of excellencefrom A TripAdvisor Member
I was in town to speak at a conference. I am of the stature where I was thrilled to have a comped room and air fare, and hardly expected anything more. And thus, I hardly expect that I had anything resembling a special room.
But it seemed special to me. I was quite taken with the combination desk-bookcase that separated the sleeping area from the sitting area. Quite suite. I loved the drink offered upon check in. And because it was not high season, I thought the pool area, where I had lunch one day, was quite spectacular. From what I've read, it is less to behold when filled with families. Food prices were a bit high for what you got, but that's to be expected.
Coral Gables is such an odd setting for a luxury hotel. Surrounded by middle close homes, it is literally miles away from the ocean and the beach scene. I was told there are a lot of international conferences of the pan-Latin variety. In fact, one morning I was prevented from entering the hotel by an armed guard, who I guess was protecting some government or business bigwig.
And here's another interesting thing about Coral Gables--the geckos are everywhere!
Could not have asked for morefrom BarefootTom
I do not hesitate to recommend the Biltmore to anyone who is looking for great accommodations at a very historic hotel.
very much let downfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Top Local Tips for Miami
Village at Merrick Park; downtown Coral Gables The Village at Merrick Park is an upscale shopping mall with many of the usual suspects: Neiman-Marcus, Nordstrom, Tiffany, LaCoste, Carolina Herrera, Diane von Furstenburg, Vic's Secret, etc.. There are a number of good dining options including the Italian Villagio restaurant (although our waiter seemed impatient to take our order, when the restaurant was NOT crowded!), and there are less expensive soup/sndwich/bakery places on the second level. Downtown Coral Gables has a few interesting shops, including the independent (and knowledgeable) Books & Books, which has a great design section. There is also a small cosmetics shop that reminds me of a lower-key Zitomer or Bigelow from Manhattan -- many small brands. There are more bridal and made-to-order stores here than anyplace I've every seen for a town of this size. Many interesting cafes.
Great restaurants Ask the hotel bellmen, valets, and other personnel for tips on where to eat!
No Reservations... Check out Les Halles Restaurant (owned by celebrity chef, Anthony Bourdain). Great French restaurant about 10 minutes from the Biltmore.
