"The Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell-Downtown offers all of this and more. Between our Portuguese-speaking managers and supervisors, our proximity to the Brazilian Consulate, our location in the heart of downtown, and our access to Miami's finest shopping and entertainment attractions, it's no wonder why we are the hotel of choice for Brazilian visitors."
