MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/28/14 -- Miami is known for many things, but chief among them are its enviable climate and the locals' chic sense of style. Now, thanks to the Courtyard Miami West/FL Turnpike, those ephemeral qualities have been distilled into the three guiding principles -- Sun-Shop-Save -- behind its latest retail-centric promotion.
That this Miami West hotel developed a shopping promotion only makes sense considering its location. Not only is the hotel near the Sawgrass Mills premium outlet stores and the Shops at Pembroke Gardens, but both the value-oriented Dolphin Mall and the extensive Miami International Mall are just minutes away.
The close proximity is good news for shoppers. While the property is among the few Miami hotels with free parking, its shopping promotion includes transportation to both Dolphin Mall and Miami International Mall. Whether guests choose to scour the racks at the Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Coach and Bloomingdale's outlets in Dolphin Mall, or take the family to Miami International Mall's more traditional stores, they are bound to find more than a few packages to take home. Additionally, the Miami International Mall invites you to shop and stop by Simon Guest Services for a copy of the "Style Pass," filled with great promotions from over 70 participating retailers and restaurants because at Miami International Mall you'll find everything you need.
When guests aren't indulging in retail therapy, they'll find plenty of other ways to pamper themselves on property. The hotel's swimming pool and whirlpool, for example, are both great opportunities to soak up the Florida sunshine. And the hotel's fitness center makes staying active outside mall corridors especially easy. Even the guest rooms set this property apart from other Doral, Florida hotels, thanks to their wide variety of amenities, which include LCD HD televisions, mini-refrigerators and coffeemakers and luxury bedding.
Guests who need to stay connected for work (or play) will also appreciate the complimentary wireless and wired Internet available in the guest rooms and public spaces of the hotel. Catching up on email is even more pleasant when visitors can do it while relaxing in the courtyard with a signature cocktail.
Refueling, in fact, is a pleasure at both the Lobby Bar and The Bistro. Guests who book the shopping promotion will enjoy daily complimentary continental breakfast for two at The Bistro, which features healthy and hearty morning fare along with specialty drinks prepared with Starbucks coffee. (Dinner and cocktails are available in the evening.)
Like any savvy shopper knows, however, good deals must be snapped up quickly. Rates for this promotion, which is available between April 20 and December 31, 2014, start at $129 per night. But in order for guests to shop and save while savoring the sun, they have to pick up the phone. The promotion is only available by calling the hotel at 1-786-264-0923 and specifically requesting it.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
