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.

The management of the hotel makes its best to assist all guests in a very efficient way. Have been staying at this exact location for over 10 years, and have never been disappointed...! Look forward to my next stay. In the center of Coconut Grove, surrounded by very nearby great restaurants!

Staff require exhaustve training. Best two examples are the cleaner who dropped a cloth of the floor( on the morning of 24 Feb) and cleaned it by shuffling it round with her foot.

Staff require exhaustve training. Best two examples are the cleaner who dropped a cloth of the floor( on the morning of 24 Feb) and cleaned it by shuffling it round with her foot. Also the bar restaurant staff who seemed incapable of doing the most basic taske.......hot tea does need hot water. Our room had a cracked wash basin and broken hand rail by the bath. Overall we thought the staff were badly motivated. The breakfast scrambled eggs were congealed and cold....horrible. Read less

Beautiful hotel with excellent staff. Would have loved to stay longer. Room was on the 19th floor with a great view of Coconut Grove. The restaurant had a nice view of the marina and ocean. The rooftop pool looked beautiful, though I did not have time to try it. Highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again if I had the opportunity.

As a Miami resident for 30 years, this is not a good example of the "new" Coconut Grove. The room was dirty, the bathroom tile floor cracked, and obvious repairs to the walls which did not match the paint. I appreciate the elevator security that you cannot go up floors without a special card, but mine and the lady who was renting there both had… Read more
As a Miami resident for 30 years, this is not a good example of the "new" Coconut Grove. The room was dirty, the bathroom tile floor cracked, and obvious repairs to the walls which did not match the paint. I appreciate the elevator security that you cannot go up floors without a special card, but mine and the lady who was renting there both had problems in the elevator with the card and had to go back to the front desk. The restaurant was outlandishly expensive but the staff in the restaurant and the front desk were delightful. So kudos to them but they need to pay staff more and invest in the infrastructure of the restaurant, and rooms, and no so much on the fake prints in the hallways and lobby. Read less

We stayed two nights and the hotel itself is very clean and very updated Lobby etc. There are 21floors and they have just started renovating the rooms themselves starting on the top floor working their way down. Our room was not renovated yet, but was very clean and had a fabulous view of the city and the bed was very comfortable, great shower and it had a kitchenette and small balcony. The hotel was very reasonably priced by going on the Best Western website. The restaurant is good but small, the pool was amazing and the view is incredible of the boats in the bay and surrounding area. The hotel is in a great part of town with a walk to great restaurants and shops. The town of CG has a hip young people’s vibe with a lot of different architecture and culture. The hotel has valet parking for $30 plus per day but you can self park right next door for $12 per day. The staff at the hotel are very kind and attentive. Our TV didn’t work the first night so I called the front desk and they sent someone up immediately to fix it. It’s very well run. Absolutely would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay her again. The pool was so relaxing and warm we tried to stay an extra night to enjoy the area but the price more than doubled because of a big boat show and Art fair this weekend. Read less
