“Great hotel! Excellent stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2009

Went with my wife to celebrate our anniversary (without the kids) and we were really happy to find this place. Top-notch service throughout the property, not to mention that it's gorgeous - beautiful things everywhere - really high-end design wherever you look, almost as though it was "staged" to perfection. Yet even with the very cool, hip and blisteringly expensive vibe going on, it was still very comfortable, and although we have our own kids, we were selfishly happy NOT to see a ton of kids there - especially with spring break going on locally. Mind you, though, the hotel is part of a condo complex (The Icon - three 50 story towers) which although completed, was 99% unoccupied (typical now-a-days in South Florida), but once it fills up (which in the current economic climate could take years...) the incredible peace and quiet that we found throughout the property will likely (and sadly) dissipate to some degree.

But for now, our room was nice. We had a 1 bed/2 bath suite. Great AC, spotless throughout, mainly a city view (although you could see the water also) and although there was no furniture on the balcony, we were very-well provided for inside, so we didnt care. Comforable beds, large marble-covered bathrooms, and even a small kitchen-ette complete with cook-top, microwave, sink and espresso maker. Overall, very comfortable, clean and pleasing to the eye.

The pool areas on floors 15 and 50 were both beautiful - and the private club way up on 50 was Vegas/SoBe cool - but my favorite part of the hotel - by far - was the spa. Holy moly it's gorgeous! For gym/spa freaks, you really have to see it to appreciate it...and the staff there can't do enough for you; the trainer was totally game to help me out in the gym, which had tons of cardio machines and was loaded with both free weights and top-of-the-line Technogym machines. I did a spin class also. Good instructor, and he played some really cool house music from this incredible sound system, which made the 1 hour class fly by. Locker room w/ steam, sauna, and, again, marble everywhere. Overally, an incredible facility - so much more beautiful than any spa I've ever been too, not to mention, again, that it was empty, which made it than much quieter. Didn't get any spa treatments, not so much because of the astronomical prices, but more so because I was relaxed enough without it.

The only area that we thought could be improved was in the food (taste - not service) dept - lunches were good, dinner good but not great, and room svc breakfast was "eh" at best. We were told that the hotel is bringing in a michelin-starred chef within the next few weeks - and if he's worth his "star", then that could the proverbial icing on the cake...

We'd definately return. Enjoy the "introductory" rates while they last, because I have a feeling that once word gets out about this place, they are undoubtedly going to shoot up.

This is the most incredible hotel I have ever stayed at in the world. The hotel is classified as a 4 1/2 stars, but should definitely be moved up to 5 stars. This a new hotel which opened in early February-2009. We stayed for 3 weekend nights in March-2009. The following are the things that most impressed me about this hotel:

(1) The hotel service exceeded my expectations. From the moment you drive up to the minute you leave, you are treated like a King. There are no airs put on by the staff, but rather they are extremely friendly and attentive to your needs.
(2) The size of the rooms are beyond adequate. I received a special rate on a one bedroom suite which measured about 780 square feet. This is quite large. Even their standard King rooms measure about 500 square feet, which is more space than you will get at most hotels.
(3) The outside deck on the 15th floor is worth the visit alone. The space covers 2 acres and has one of the world's largest infinity pool that I have ever seen. There are at least 3 large pools on the 15th floor and the most comfortable seating & lounging spaces.
(4) An included fitness center and movie room as part of the hotel. I could not believe the fitness center and movie room were free of charge. I would of happily paid to use this great space, but to my surprise it was indeed free. There is also a nice spa which charges reasonable rates.

I could go on for days talking about this hotel. Simply put, this is a must stay at hotel. You will not be disappointed.

All I can say is Pictures and Words can't do this property justice. Every detail is perfection! Stay in a Suite if you can~ Go to the Spa/Gym for a second to none visual and sensory experience! I felt like a queen my entire stay.

They are still working out the kinks and final details in the rooms as it's the first week open. I did not care one bit.

Have lunch at the restaruant on the 15th floor by the pool and ask for Johanna to serve you! She is a nice surprise as she is happy and very personable (a nice departure from the abrasive and cold nature of many Miami Hotel Employees). Thank you for making our lunch memorable and relaxing....even in the heavy wind.

The hotel is beautiful (rooms look exactly the same as in the hotel's photographs). The staff was really fantastic. The pool on the hotel's top floor (Club 50) is very nice, calm and relaxed, and the views are great from the 50th floor. Views from the hotel rooms look toward the city and not the bay (some of the rooms look over the Miami river and the city around it). The restaurant is very good. The menu isn't adventurous, but the quality is very high. I'd be happy eating there any day; the staff is great. The gym and spa at the condominium part of the complex is also beautiful (and huge). As an aside, we stopped by the Mandarin Oriental (5 minutes away) for an early dinner before we flew out of town. Both the food and the decor there felt very dated.

We had great expectations for the opening weekend stay. When we got there at 5 pm we were told our room wasn´t ready (3 PM check in and mind you this is opening weekend but didn´t seem like many guests). We were told they couldn´t give me a time when the room would be ready and to check the hotel out and ´chill out´. Lunch was free. The main pool was still under construction and other details still missing. Once we settled in everything was better and good service. For the price I´d rather stay at the Four Seasons or the Mandarin.
