A complimentary trolley-bus operates on Ponce de Leon Boulevard alongside the hotel to the vast shopping/dining center called Village of Merrick Park. In contrast to the hotel's Neoclassical design, a spacious business center displays a starkly contemporary style of grays, yellows, and exposed duct work and offers two flat-screen computers with high-speed Internet connections (surcharges), a full range of business services, and boardroom, conference room, and day office for rent. A fitness room off the rooftop pool deck contains a universal gym, cardio machines, and free weights. Wireless Internet access is available throughout the hotel for laptops with network cards. (Network cards are available for rent.) The hotel does not offer parking. Both valet and self parking are available, however, through an independent service, whose garage is adjacent to the hotel; surcharges apply. The hotel offers 157 guestrooms in the top four floors of a 15-story retail/office/hotel building built in 1991 to reflect the Neoclassical style of the historic, 1926 Rotunda it incorporates. (The lobby is on the second floor above ground-floor shops and restaurants.) Extra-spacious rooms feature separate sitting areas with sofas, work desks, 32 inch flat panel TVs and beautiful marblebath vanities. A once-artsy community, the downtown of tiny Coconut Grove is an explosion of stores and restaurants, with two major retail-entertainment complexes. The Coconut Grove Playhouse offers first-rate theater, and a large marina makes this a good spot for boaters. This locale is just minutes from downtown Miami, Coral Gables, and Key Biscayne.
