Day -1, May 2, 2015, Serenity Crossing - Travel Day

Bob got in the day before, returning from a business trip to Tianjin, China.  We decided to leave our car behind and got a ride from a company called Four Seasons Concierge.  We were picked up by the owner Sam, promptly at 6 am and made it to the airport without any problems.  We boarded a Delta flight to Atlanta at 8:30am.  The flight was uneventful (which is always a good thing).  We arrived approximately on time, but then had to wait nearly 3 hours for our flight to Miami.  Why we chose that long of a layover, I'll never know.  But eventually we made it to Miami at about 7:30 pm.  We collected our bags and decided to give Uber a try to get us a ride to the Aloft Brickell hotel.  The driver arrived and hauled us to the hotel.  Easy, peasy!!  It was even free because we were a first time user and I found a coupon for the first time use.  Otherwise it would have cost $14.15.

Julie says that the hotel is kind of a hipster hotel and we probably were the oldest people ever to check-in!!!  It is ultra modern in decor.  Julie has Gold SPG status, so we got upgraded to a nice corner room.  We grabbed a quick bite to eat from their little convenience shop and then relaxed and went to bed.
