I have always been a big Mandarin Oriental fan but must confess that the Miami one was a disappointment and I would not return. The famed Martini bar is very small and the infinity pool minute (three strokes and you've reached the other end). The service, although always given with a smile, is slow and the automatic gratuity added to... More

I recently stayed at the Mandarin and expected much better service than I received. The service turned bad when I returned to my room to change for the evening and realized that the hanger that I brought with me to hang my suit on was missing from the room. I searched all over because even at 2 star hotels the... More

I stayed at the Madarin Oriental for 2 nights at the end of October with my parents and my now new fiance. When we checked in we were giving an upgrade to a bay view which was lovely and having got such a good deal due to the time of year we were even more pleased. The hotel was fairly... More

One of the best hotels I have experienced. The view on the ocean is just amazing from the rooms & suites. Valet parking was a bit slow, even when called from the room with nobody waiting before or after me. Like all chain hotels, relationships with staff are a bit cold & impersonal but at least, no intrusion to bear... More

The Mandarin is a beautiful hotel with first class amenities including a terrific spa, and most notably, an amazing pool that overlooks the Miami harbor and skyline. The hotel bar is hip and the overall atmosphere of the property is chic but doesn't guild the lily, it is quite tasteful. One problem is the hotel is somewhat isolated form the... More

I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental for a conference, and it was unfortunate I was traveling by myself because the hotel and its location are fantastic. The hotel itself is situated on Biscayne Bay. I was fortunate to get a room facing the bay and took full advantage of the private balcony that comes standard with every room. (Have a... More

I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental Miami on a business trip in October 2007. This hotel is exactly what I like in a business hotel. The room was tasteful and modern with a view of the Miami skyline. The bathroom was very large and had a window as well – a nice touch. The service was great. Check in was... More

We chose the Mandarin Oriental as we felt to old for South Beach and we were glad we made the right choice. The hotel is lovely - all rooms have balconies and we chose the Executive Suite - lots of space and a lovely bathroom. A cab to SoBe was $30 and if you're staying at the M.O. then this... More

OK, it's a very nice hotel. I did not like the area though - it's completely dead and you have to drive anywhere/everywhere. In addition, I found that the place is packed one night with people en route to cruising, and empty the next. The lobby is very cold and terminal-like. I am a regular "fan" of MOHG and stay... More

The Miami Mandarin is an excellent hotel all around. My wife and I stayed at there over the Labor Day weekend and loved it. This is one of the best 5 stars hotels we have stayed at. I was not that that impressed with the lobby but our room was excellent and the service was superb. Considering the class of... More
