Miami is a popular cruise port and house to many cruise lines. On our current journey to Miami to sail on the MSC Divina we decided to remain overnight on the Embassy Suites in Miami, as we wished to make sure an early arrival to the cruise port the subsequent day. The Embassy Suites had received quite just a few good opinions on sites like Journey Advisor, though guests reported outdated decor, so we were curious as to how true the reviews had been. I can fortunately report that our resort keep was delightful and pleasing-and the decor really didn’t appear that dated! 🙂 We ended up arriving at 2 pm-earlier than test in time but we had been promptly given our room, in addition to a bag of goodies, which included water bottles, cookies and chips. Our room was large, as all Embassy Suites have a bedroom, Trip bathroom and living/dining space. The sofa was a comfortable pull out queen bed for my son to sleep on. There was a mini fridge and a flat display tv. I asked for a room towards the entrance of the resort as I learn the rooms in the again get noise from the airport. Our room was extremely quiet.
The room was extremely clear, as was all the hotel. The employees at verify in was very friendly and keen to assist make our stay a fantastic one. We headed out to eat a late lunch after checking in on the yummy La Esquina del Lechon-

As we had been in the Doral space of Miami, this restaurant was about a ten minute drive from the hotel. While I didn’t have pork, my husband and son did and thought it was delicious. This restaurant was packed and it appears to be a well-liked and genuine dining spot. Their chicharrones, plantains and spice wheel at the table made this Cuban restaurant an actual deal with!
We were nonetheless so full from lunch that we actually made this our dinner!
After our feast we headed back to the Embassy Suites to take pleasure in their Manager’s Blissful Hour from 5:30-7:30. The open bar was excellent-with a large variety of cocktails and nicely drinks, wine, sangria and beer out there. A choice of soda from the fountain was also provided for those company who did not drink alcohol and for youngsters. Snacks provided were cookies, nachos with salsa and pretzels with honey mustard dipping sauce. We were nonetheless so full from lunch that we actually made this our dinner! 🙂 The bartender, Carmine “Santa” was superior and made the best drinks for all of the visitors! The supervisor of the lodge even came by to inquire whether or not friends have been enjoying themselves too. This complimentary event was actually a great perk to staying at the Embassy Suites!

After the reception ended, promptly at 7:30, we wandered around the lodge to take some photographs of the gorgeous foyer and check out the picturesque pool and adjoining gym. There was a Starbucks espresso machine for company to buy-so if you are a Starbucks fan you may indulge! We were tempted to stop by the restaurant however apart from not being tremendous hungry the prices have been actually too high. I was dissatisfied there weren’t some fairly priced dishes on the menu so the friends from the reception may proceed over to the other space of the lodge near the restaurant and continue relaxing and socializing. In the event that they had been to have a number of low priced appetizers available for visitors, as well as bar specials, provided after the reception I will bet many visitors would benefit from it. We actually would have! For anybody curious right here is the menu from the hotel restaurant-

We hung out in our room and watched some tv earlier than turning in early. The next morning we enjoyed a complimentary made to order breakfast, which was actually good! The majority of the breakfast foods were commonplace for complimentary breakfast buffets-fruit, bacon, scrambled eggs, sausage, muffins, pancakes, donuts, and many others. The one distinctive thing in regards to the Embassy Suites Miami is that they also make eggs any fashion to order-including omelets. I obtained to order my favorite tomato, mushroom and cheese omelet-and the cook was surprisingly fast! We all had specifically made omelets and we had been all very pleased with them. 🙂
Testing was a breeze- and we did not pay a parking payment both. In fact, parking was easy as there were plenty of spots both in the entrance and the again of the hotel, so you really didn’t must valet. Our drive to the cruise port took 12 minutes. Total our experience with the Embassy Suites Miami was a incredible one-and we plan to make this lodge our go to port hotel for Miami!
