“Highly recommend it. Not your average Miami for sure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

This is by far one of the best hotel experiences I've had in a while. The Quarzo hotel is beautifully designed, with high attention to detail, everything from the hallways to furniture and room accessories is pleasant! This place feels like staying on a luxury condo rental instead of a hotel.
Staff was extremely friendly, at the same time discreet and very respectful. Location was great for us, because we wanted to stay away from the over-the-top Miami experience and the overwhelming resort vacation. Also, despite being such a nice hotel, nobody here seems to be even slightly snob (as it happens sometimes at boutique hotels).
Bal Harbour is a beautiful, quiet and very upscale area, still close to shops, great restaurants and amazing beaches.
Toileteries were replaced almost everyday in our bathroom, we also got several small gifts in our room during our 1 week stay (chocolates, a cute paper fan, jelly beans on a mini-jar). When we requested a couple of extra towels for the room, the housekeeping ladies left about 5 more!. When we wanted to print our flight boarding passes, the guests printer was not working, so they allowed us to use a computer on the front desk and print directly from there. There's is free WIFI in the room, it was great to get some work done, send some emails and plan our vacation on-site.
Perhaps the only suggestion I would make is for the hotel to have a bar / snack service.

The service at the Quarzo was excellent - from the time you check in to the time you check out, the staff have everything covered and are extremely pleasant. I received an amazing upgrade from a normal room to a huge 1 bedroom suite, which was greatly appreciated and enjoyed. The entire hotel is very well kept, clean and beautiful. I would definitely recommend the Bar Harbour Quarzo for anyone looking to enjoy Miami away from the South Beach scene.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the water

Love the concept of the rooms with kitchens & even a dining room table !

Great attention to detail, staff was very friendly and offered many suggestions on where to go locally. I cannot wait to take my whole family here for vacation.

Quarzo Hotel is a great home away from home !

Room Tip: Invest the extra $ to get a room with a kitchen !

The description of the room on the website did not match the room that we were assigned at check-in. We expected a room with 2 queen beds and a sleeper sofa, but were stuck with a room with just 2 queen beds because they were completely full. Four women in a room with two beds? The room was also very small and there were no closets. We all felt that we paid too much for the room that we got, especially since we had to pay an extra $180 for having four peope in the room. We also had to pay $10 per day for parking and there were not enough parking spaces. The final straw was that my credit card was charged several weeks after checkout for items that they say we used on the mini bar! We made it a point to stop and buy snacks for our room so that we wouldn't use the mini bar. We will never stay there again and will not recommend it to anyone.
