This is an URBAN Design Hotel located in Miami’s Financial District and Elite Brickel Condominiums.
Although, none of these Hotel Rooms face the magnificent Pool deck located on the 15th floor; it makes up with other ways – “Junior Suites”. The hotel is located below the 15th floor and its well worth the few dollars extra to splurge for these spectacular Junior Suites #1211. These Junior Suites with balconies and kitchenette are located on the corner of the building offering you panoramic views of the Water & Brickel Avenue with their floor to ceiling windows; including the fabulous oversized washroom. The only area that is completely private is the water closet. The Suites are exquisitely furnished with unique pieces but when will the Hotel purchase some balcony furniture?
There are (2) Restaurants & (1) bar located on the premises. The Icon is accessible from the pool deck and offers you a variety of gourmet salads, cold & hot pressed sandwiches. Although the food was acceptable at the EOS Restaurant; we were not impressed with the service. We had spent (4) nights at this Hotel but didn’t realize until the third day that this complex includes an 18% gratuity charge . . . it would have been appreciated if the staff would have mention that policy – verify your bills.
This Hotel is NOT located on South Beach, but its fabulous massive Pool deck & 28,000 square foot Spa will offer you a different experience of Miami.
Enjoy an illy espresso without leaving your room!
