Hotel Arya, BW Premier Collection

Coconut Grove, Miami

The hotel

A modern hotel, the Hotel Arya, BW Premier Collection enjoys a prime location, right in the heart of the fashionable bayside community of Coconut Grove and steps from CocoWalk, a Mediterranean-style shopping village with outdoor cafés, a cinema and glitzy nightlife. Coral Gables is 2 miles away, with downtown Miami slightly further at 4 miles. Accommodation is sophisticated and spacious with stunning views of your surrounds and every modern amenity you could wish for, including a wall-mounted satellite TV. On the 8th floor is the swimming pool and — very rare for Miami — 2 superb squash courts. Order a drink from the pool bar, grab a lounger and admire views of the bay. There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness centre to keep the body beautiful and a spa tub for sheer relaxation. The Panorama Restaurant & Sky Lounge is on the 8th floor too and boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and a very contemporary feel. The menu is heavily influenced by Nuevo-Andean Peruvian cuisine although International favourites are also included to satisfy your taste buds.

This hotel is own by Best Western, and that’s what you are getting here. Don’t be fooled by the fancy name and website description - this is an overpriced Best Western. Our room was very tiny and a weird layout - some rooms used to be condos and this was clearly half of a condo. It had a walk-in closet and another empty closet that appears to have housed a washer/dryer at some point. But the actual bedroom part of the room was very small. As an aside, if you are traveling with a small kid I think a pack-n-play would fit in either the closet or the bathroom if you wanted. There were also some problems with the room itself. Ours had no conditioner, the toilet wouldn’t consistently flush, and the ironing board was broken. We tried to go up to the breakfast buffet and it looked quite sad. It was your standard hotel breakfast with pre-made food but they charged $15 a person for it. The staff were pleasant, the hotel was clean, it just was probably worth about $125 a night and they charge twice that. Plus a resort fee with no resort amenities (not even bottled water in the rooms or room service). Read less

Our room door was left open for 7 hours by the housekeeping staff. We left our room at 2:45 pm when the housekeeper knocked on our door and returned at 10:30pm after our night out. Our door was left wide open. I called the front desk to see why it happened and they said they would address it in the morning. I had to address it myself the next day… Read more

Our door was left wide open. I called the front desk to see why it happened and they said they would address it in the morning. I had to address it myself the next day because I was not contacted and all they said was it was being addressed with the housekeeper. I would not recommend this hotel because of this safer issue as well as their lack of customer service and understanding when dealing with an issue. Read less

The hotel is right in Coconut Grove within walking distance of restaurants and bakeries. It is a property with owners and part Best Western. If you rent from an owner, parking may be included, if not, it is >$30. However, right next to it divided by a fence is a $12 night public parking - perfect and no unnecessary walking to get to the hotel, you… Read more
The hotel is right in Coconut Grove within walking distance of restaurants and bakeries. It is a property with owners and part Best Western. If you rent from an owner, parking may be included, if not, it is >$30. However, right next to it divided by a fence is a $12 night public parking - perfect and no unnecessary walking to get to the hotel, you would swear it is connected. Just be sure it is the parking to the left as you face the hotel and not the underground to your right which is double that. Service did not WOW me, but it was not terrible. Breakfast is not included because it is not your standard BW. Room was big, clean with great AC. Pool area is nice, however people eat out on the bistro seating because pool is just outside of the restaurant. Some people will stare at you as you try to enjoy the pool or spa, this is a bit bothersome so just be aware. The pool area was nice view of the water and tranquil to just sit out there and enjoy.

We stayed two nights for a friend’s wedding and though the location was good, it wasn’t particularly inexpensive and our room was quite basic with a handful of maintenance issues: missing sink faucet aerator (water everywhere), loose tub grab bar, very noisy exhaust fan (painful), the closet bifold door came off into my arms (with no abuse), and the balcony door latch was broken and wouldn’t latch. In a cheap hotel, maybe, but at a full nightly rate plus the irritating “resort fee” trick, I would say they need much more focus on the product supplied. Read less
