For the last ten years, I have been traveling by public transportation. Seven out of those ten years, I traveled from Miami Beach to the Mandarin Oriental, located on Brickell Key, south of Downtown Miami and the Miami River. Rain or shine, weekday or weekend, Thanksgiving or Christmas Day, I was at the bus stop at 5:30 AM to be on time for my 7:00 AM shift. I would place my bicycle on the bus rack and then bike back in the afternoon.
“When you live in hotels, your native guide is the Concierge. He knows the ropes, he knows how to do things. There is nothing they can’t do. They have seen it all. No matter how good or bad you behave, they have seen it and they have seen worse and better.” Bill Murray
