    Stylish accommodation with slick service

    by

    Located on a small islet -- Brickell Key -- in front of Miami downtown, Mandarin Oriental Miami is both a business hotel and a secluded oasis. All this combined with big, airy rooms and world-class service makes the hotel a good base for exploring Miami and relaxing.

    The rooms are well-appointed, stuffed with a good set of amenities. The big is big and comfortable. As an extra, there is a small balcony for viewing the city and sipping drinks while soaking the warmth of tropical USA.

    The infinity pool is moderate in size, but it was never crowded -- thus there was plenty of space in the pool and on the deck. There is also a hot tub. Hotel has a private sandy beach for people interested in sunbathing. There is no swimming possibilities there and it feels a bit too artificial for my taste.

    Nearby is a small shopping center with a good deli, a couple of restaurants and a some other basic services, and a children's playground. For all other needs, you need to visit the mainland.

Overpriced Business Hotel

by bcorbitt about Mandarin Oriental Miami

Went there for a business conference and admit facilities were great and food for event was good though sure cost organizers a fortune.

Hotel from outside is beautiful and lobby is amazing. The Beach though is more like a sand pit and have seen better at University of North Dakota. Rooms were huge and mine on the sixth floor came with a huge terrace big enough for two sun chairs. Bathroom is weird as has open design with a blind that lets too much light through if you are with someone like I was who did not have to wake up early. Bathroom only had one very hard to find plug that was covered up by provided robes. Also shower itself was poorly design with no way to swivel shower head to make it easy for a six footer or anyone else to get water to go where you wanted

For a business hotel thought a bit penny pinching in this day and age to charge 15 dollars a day for internet. I have stayed at hampton inns that were better. Not sure of other options for business meetings in Miami area but for my money I would not pay to stay there for pleasure. Had prerequisite Infinity pool and fitness center was very nice though weird how one had to go through spa on second floor to get to a fitness facility on third floor. Nice conference center with banquet hall that easily could fit a few hundred. Not sure how much Feng Shui played in design but weird open bathroom.

High-end dining at moderate pricing

by LostBoyPN about Cafe Sambal at Mandarin Oriental Hotel

The Kobe Beef Korean BBQ was fantastic as was the dulce de leche dessert. But what made this restaurant memorable was the great service and spectacular views from out on the patio. There's nothing like eating a great meal while looking across the bay at the Miami skyline. Plus, the meal was relatively moderately priced considering the hotel and the location are top notch.

Rare restuarant on Brickell Key

by bcorbitt about Brasserie Brickell Key

Stayed at the Mandarin Oriental and decided to walk to find a place. This was next door. Not too expensive considering neighbordhood. Food was basic but service was good and hit the spot for a nice lunch away from hotel. Both of us had chicken salad which was bit dry but wine was decent. (305) 577-0907

Asian fashion in Asian hotel

by nomadig about Shanghai Tang

Shanghai Tang, the Chinese high fashion label has a miniscule store in the lobby of Mandarin Oriental. Probably not visited by others than the hotel guests, the shop has a selection of clothes and accessories.

If you are fond of blending traditional Asian designs with modern influences, Shanghai Tang might have that stuff for you. The items are relatively expensive, but not on the levels of European haute couture companies. Of course, the brand recognition is also different.

When not residing in the hotel, you need to drive there -- just say to valet guys that you'll be there for fifteen minutes or less and they won't charge you for the parking. There is also a Brickell Key bus connection from the local train and Metromover stations. But then you need to be really serious for the stuff, as it is bit of a hassle

Absolutely Sir - Fantastic experience!

by A TripAdvisor Member

This is a dream hotel! We spent a post-cruise night at the Mandarin Oriental and got superb rooms at a very reasonable price! We stayed literally for two full days at the hotel and were pampering ourselves everywhere from Azul to the unforgettable spa. Service was excellent and all our wishes were always fulfilled. We can be very demanding sometimes but all our little moans (like we wanted our cappuccinos stronger) were immediately corrected.

By the way, get a divine bathrobe for yourself as a gift even if you need to wait for its delivery for two weeks! We still feel them on our skin and are planning to order a couple of them to Europe. Even if your cruise didn't succeed the Mandarin Oriental will make you come back to Miami and this is really a place to stay and relax.

Miami at its best

by TripAdvisor Member hotelfreak

If you are one that has travelled to Miami frequently and are tired of the South Beach scene..escape to Brickell Key...there is no better place than the Mandarin Oriental. Step into the lobby and inhale relaxation, have a martini on the balcony area looking over the water, hang out at the "custom-made" beach area..no swimming though. The rooms are amazing, immaculately clean and the bathroom, ah the bathroom, makes you want to spend all your time there! South Beach is greatly overrated, do not miss an opportunity to discover a little bit more of Miami!

Luxury at it's best

The service at The Mandarin Miami was as always, flawless. Having stayed in many luxury hotels in the past, I must say The Mandarin is the best of the best.

A wonderful weekend getaway...

by TripAdvisor Member Bjaygee

My wife and I snuck off for a quiet weekend at the MOMi...we had a Mandarin suite with a wonderful, large balcony and view of the city...the service was superb in all respects, from check-in to the concierge to the guy mixing drinks at the M Bar to the manager of Azul...yes, it's expensive...very, very expensive...the chef's tasting for two at Azul was nearly $400.00...and a day at the spa for you and your spouse can easily run $600...it's not a hotel for the masses, but if you've got the wallet to enjoy it (including the man wah noodles with duck breast and shrimp at the cafe for lunch...yum) then you will have a wonderful, relaxing and exceptionally enjoyable time there on Brickell Key...

A Great Find!!

by A TripAdvisor Member

Wonderful experience! The architecture is amazing, and the rooms are decorated beautifully with Asian touches. The bathrooms are enormous, and have sunken tubs. Our room had a stunning waterfront view of the city. My only regret is that we didn't spend more time enjoying the room.

Although we arrived at 1:00am, the service during check-in/out was superb. And, the concierge was super-attentive. We had an early reservation (7:00pm) at Azul, and decided to dine outdoors. There are only a few tables outdoors, and by 7:30pm, they were gone! During dinner, which was exquisite, we enjoyed an amazing sunset. The ambiance was sophisticated, and the presentation of the food was excellent.

Our brunch experience at Cafe Sambal was mediocre. The food was exceptional, but the service was below average. It took the waiter 20 minutes to take our order, and over an hour to serve us.

Miami Downtown (Hotel Hyatt Regency) - Is it a great place to stay?

by BrunoB

Dear VT Friends,

I'm going to Miami in october and I'm searching for a hotel to stay. In fact, I'm not planning to stay in the city to go to the beach, what I'd like is a nice hotel (4* - 5*), with a pool and nice rates. I found Hyatt Regency and other top brand hotels in Miami Downtown (very close to the Brickell Key and to other top hotels like Mandarin Oriental, Four Seasons, Intercontinental and Conrad) with good prices if you compare to those located in Miami Beach.

My intentions in Miami is to do shopping and I'll rent a car.

What do you think about? Many thanks in advance and best regards.

I like it, stayed there last year. I also like the Biltmore and the Doral Resort. Good luck Bruno

Re: Miami Downtown (Hotel Hyatt Regency) - Is it a great place to stay?

by xymmot

There are many hotels in Miami with great rates with the 4 and 5 stars, the problem I find is that when you want to save money at these beautiful places (luxury) they charge a lot for parking fee. So when you are looking for a place, cheap, but nice, check the parking rate. If the rate is the same, stay at the Conrad or Lowes.
