My family and I have stayed at The Biltmore in Coral Gables several weeks each year over the past 4 years during which time our daughter attended the University of Miami. We would leave our home in New York, arrive at The Biltmore and each time feel truly welcomed by the warm and genuine smiles and hugs of the wonderful staff... Claudette the concierge is fantastic, knowledgeable, and gives the best hugs to the family. She is a gem...
