"The operational team at the InterContinental Miami is a major driving force for selecting the hotel. It's a team of 'yes we can' and as different out-of-the-box ideas were pitched, they worked with my team seamlessly to figure out how to do so efficiently and with that little extra flair."

--Wayne Harth, Principal at Kaleidoscope Vue Consulting
