Biltmore Hotel Miami

Miami, Florida

The hotel

Timeless, classic beauty — it’s what this place oozes. Since first opening in 1926, and a landmark in itself, the Biltmore Hotel has spent its years since winning award after award, and it’s easy to see why. You can take a dip in the huge pool (one of the biggest in the U.S.), have a round of golf on the 18-hole championship course, enjoy a relaxing treatment in the spa, and even take part in a cooking class. Little ones will be equally pleased too, with golf and tennis lessons, and a seasonal kids’ camp, they’ll never tire of things to do. And when the evenings roll in, head to one of the restaurants for some good food and, of course, a cocktail or two.

Our stay was from 02/21 to 02/23/2020. During our stay we experienced poor Customer Service from one of the staff members named Mark at Fontana's check in counter. He was not only rude to the guest in front of us but to me and my boyfriend. Unbeknownst to us we didn't know breakfast downstairs ended for Sunday brunch at 10 so we arrived at 10:15.… Read more

He was not only rude to the guest in front of us but to me and my boyfriend. Unbeknownst to us we didn't know breakfast downstairs ended for Sunday brunch at 10 so we arrived at 10:15. He said we could attend but he didn't know if it was in our price range. I am a guest in this resort and I can certainly afford it. Plus, we didn't ask how much it cost as that's not an issue for us. It's funny a staff member would say that to a paying guest. Staff like him needs to learn etiquette, tact, and class to treat guests. Frankly he shouldn't even be working at such a resort. Read less

Having stayed at the Biltmore Hotel for decades since the late 1980s, we’ve sadly come to terms with the fact that the hotel has lost its venerable charm, decorum and attention to detail. The beds are old and saggy, to the point where sleeping on the floor is a more comfortable option (seriously). The noise of a dysfunctional air conditioning unit in a neighboring room woke us early one morning; it was if a jackhammer was rattling the walls. While the hotel manager was attentive to our complaint, we did not receive (as promised) any sort of follow up or resolution of the situation. Beyond our uncomfortable and disrupted sleep, the hotel’s lack of cleanliness and attention to detail soured our stay. The pool area is littered with old cigarette butts, discarded plastic and napkins. The poolside tables have cigarette ashes and crumbs atop their surfaces. Lastly, the joy and hospitality of the hotel’s employees seems to have faded. There are some employees we recognize from previous stays, but no one is as happy or pleasant. What has happened to this once edenic place to stay in Goral Gables? We enjoy the nearby Salvador Tennis Center (with their beautifully maintained clay courts), the cafe at Books&Books (for its fresh and healthy menu, as well as convivial atmosphere) and the authentic friendly Italian restaurant Fratellino (on Miracle Mile). However, we will no longer stay at the Biltmore when next we visit Coral Gables. Our love affair is over! Read less

Such a gem for a family vacation. The hubs and I stayed here for a night in January and realized it would be a great place to stay with our kids, 14, 13 and 2 bc there's a HUGE pool and tennis and a driving range for the older kids. We arrived the Saturday of President's Day weekend and they were packed. Something got lost in translation with our reservation, so even though we were guaranteed adjoining rooms when we called earlier in the day, at check-in we were told the rooms were next to each other but not adjoining. Cesia and Abraham really helped us out by listening to our concerns and making things better by moving us to adjoining rooms the next day, with an upgrade. The rest of the staff from the bellmen to the breakfast team at Fontana's to the pool attendants are all top notch - friendly, helpful and kind. We will return for another family vacation soon!

The staff is friendly and accommodating. Rooms and pool are clean. My fiancée and I stayed here over a long weekend in Febrary. We enjoyed the pool, the bar, the lobby, and the room. Highly recommend!

We stayed here because we got a deal on our way to the Keys. Beautiful, elegant property. The room was beautiful (maybe needed a bit of updating) and we had one of the few balconies that looked out over the golf course. The service was superb. The golf course was pretty tired looking overall. Very busy place. A couple weddings when we were there,… Read more
We stayed here because we got a deal on our way to the Keys. Beautiful, elegant property. The room was beautiful (maybe needed a bit of updating) and we had one of the few balconies that looked out over the golf course. The service was superb. The golf course was pretty tired looking overall. Very busy place. A couple weddings when we were there, just beautiful at every turn. The golf course restaurant was ok. We ate in the Italian restaurant - good food but terribly slow. We really liked it, would return. Read less
