I'm from NY and I usually think I know a good hotel. However my last trip to Miami in March 2017 to attend the annual Jazz in the Gardens festival I asked my boyfriend to find a hotel & he reserved us a room at the Stadium hotel. When we arrived the first night I admit I didn't expect much...

I absolutely enjoyed my stay at Stadium Hotel and highly recommend it. Kudos to the security team, especially! My only regret was not having the opportunity to workout in the huge, deep swimming pool.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. The first time was last July. They were doing renovations while we were there so it left a lot to the imagination. My first experience was just ok. The hallways were kind of musty but the room was overall okay. The breakfast is exactly what they say, a continental...

I loved my room but the tub was a little dirty when we got there. When we were told they had Continental breakfast we was expecting a hot breakfast but that's not what we got! This was the only thing I wasn't happy with. Cereal isn't breakfast for an adult. But I would stay again

Hello Tahniscia, Thank you for your review and experience. I apologize the tub was not clean. This is not our practice at all. Cleanliness is very very important to us. The breakfast is free and is a light cold continental breakfast. I hope to see you return to the hotel for another visit. Respectfully, Guest Relations Manager

The room was spacious and clean. Furniture, carpets, bathroom, decor, appliances, etc. are all in good upkeep. Overall feels fairly new and well kept. Toilet seat was sliding all over the toilet, though. Our room had a large balcony, which was very nice. Not all rooms have that, though. No tobacco smell. AC (large individual in-room through-the-wall unit) was fairly...

Stayed here for 7 days and found the hotel well worth the money. Room was clean and comfortable. Great view of the training horse track. Food at the Sports Grill was good but it closed at 8PM weekdays and 10PM on Friday and Saturday. I definitely would stay there again.

We recently stayed at Stadium Hotel for about one month and we enjoyed the gorgeous views looking out of our balcony to the south east, the breakfast and the renovated lobby.
