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.
