The hotel itself is pretty nice but there’s absolutely nothing nearby to walk to in order to get food or drinks or entertainment so inside of the hotel the drinks are really expensive and the food is very overpriced. They do make a cucumber Mojito though that is extremely tasty. Pool area is ok.

Having returned from a cruise we booked a day room to use prior to our late evening flight home. Our room was really good, with two queen sized beds. Very clean and nicely presented. Our lunch was well presented and reasonably priced. The staff were all polite and friendly. We will return when we are next in Miami.

Room and bathroom were dirty and property needs renovation. The property is not up to Hilton’s standards and as a frequent traveler to Miami I will not stay there again. Parking was also a pain because my key card never worked

Let me lead this review off by saying I am a Hilton Diamond member and have been one for a couple of decades. When I booked the Hilton Blue Lagoon at the Miami Airport for over $300 a night including tax I expected a 5 star or at least a 4 star hotel...I got instead a hotel not worthy of the Hilton brand.

Let me lead this review off by saying I am a Hilton Diamond member and have been one for a couple of decades. When I booked the Hilton Blue Lagoon at the Miami Airport for over $300 a night including tax I expected a 5 star or at least a 4 star hotel...I got instead a hotel not worthy of the Hilton brand. As I write this the windows in my room look like they were last cleaned months ago. The bathroom has minimal amenities (one bar of soap, for example) and the furniture is in need of upgrading. In fact the whole hotel needs a modernization refurbishment badly. The restaurant, the only one, has a sparse menu for a $300 a night hotel and my $38 filet that I requested rare last night was at best choice beef served medium well. There is no Executive Lounge and instead of a hot breakfast for Diamond members there is a minimal continental breakfast that does not come close to matching a 2 star hotel. The front desk contacts you before you arrive and asks you if there is anything you need just reply to their IM by IM’ing them. So I asked for an extra pillow...did I ever get it...no. Was I offered any of the Diamond amenities when I checked in...no. I honestly think the GM was trying to instill a service attitude in the staff but as one of our vice presidential candidates said a few years ago “it was like putting lipstick on a pig”. Where there some friendly & helpful staff members yes, but as much as they tried they could not overcome a less than upscale pretender. If this is a corporate Hilton as I understand it is, Hilton ought to be ashamed. It did not measure up to the Hampton Inns or Hilton Garden Inns I’ve stayed in and certainly cost a lot more... Bottom line...buyer beware! Read less
