This place is very decent. I think the building is a mix of apartment and hotel rooms. I was asked several times whether I lived there and also if I knew the wifi code for the 'residents' network (which I didn't, but I wish I did, because the hotel wifi was terrible).
The gym is very good, and the pool right outdoor from the gym is very good as well. As in any big city, living high usually means that you're just going to look into somebody else's kitchen or living room. The views are not great.
However, if you like jogging, you're basically at the sea and you can easily jog up to the harbour and back in the morning for a great view with the sun creeping up on the horizon.
It's quite far from Miami beach though, so if you aim to "party hard" you should probably get something closer. Although the taxi is only 15-20 dollars (except in Miami you can't stop them on the street, and it's pretty hard to come by one at Fortune - would suggest you wander over to the Conrad or the Four Seasons instead, where taxis are much more frequent).
Either way, good hotel.
