John and I spent a very relaxing weekend in Florida. After an easy 2 1/2 hour flight to Fort Lauderdale and a half hour drive to Bal Harbour, we arrived at our hotel ready to celebrate the long (Labor Day) weekend.
Within minutes of arrival, we were whisked away to our upgraded (!) suite. I love being a Platinum member at Starwood.
Our room was fabulous — spacious, comfortable and well-appointed. We spent quite a bit of time in our room – reading, sleeping, relaxing, eating on the balcony, etc. We enjoyed 24 hour butler service and over the top customer service. Over the course of the weekend we had some amazing meals; with most of them from J&G Grill and room service. Although the food was pricey, the quality and choices of food were second to none.
When we weren’t in our room, we were in the gym or at the pool or beach. Simply glorious!
Although we really enjoyed our time in Florida, we have decided that Miami isn’t really our scene. While we love the beach, we favor the more quiet solitude and simplicity of basic beach living.
However, we were more than grateful for a quiet and relaxing weekend away from our busy lives!
