Stayed here for 3 nights on the final leg of our honeymoon that had started in San Francisco a week and a half prior so was looking fwd to some relaxation time.
Received a complimentary upgrade on arrival to a junior suite as it was our honeymoon which i think is a really nice touch as only a few hotels had offered this to us. To offer the upgrade even though we were on a stay 3 nights pay for 2 i thought was extremely generous and its touches like this that make you spread the word about a place and make you want to return.....hence the review.
The room itself was simply gorgeous....best ive ever stayed in and ive stayed at a few 5 star hotels worldwide. Doorway lead into main room with black marble floor that housed a kitchen that could be put out of sight with a sliding partition with the most gorgeous furniture that resembled authentic havana. There was a balcony that looked over a beautiful church, next was the bedroom with a beautiful 4 poster framed bed which lead into the biggest bathroom ever. Really loved the illy coffee machine as it was by far the nicest coffee of our trip.
The pool area was really nice with loads of loungers available, particularly loved the double loungers....so comfy! The view at the end of the infinity pool was stunning as you looked out towards miami beach. The spa was visually stunning but found it not very relaxing, a bit pretentious if im honest. A bit like the club 50 that i think is affiliated to the hotel, amazing to be in a pool on the 50th floor or having a drink but a bit too pretentious for us, just a personal thing so dont let it put you off.
The location is downtown which to be honest i liked as pretty quiet at night but south beach is the place to be in the evening and so you were looking at a $20 taxi each way to get there. We got the bus to south beach for $2 during the day from a stop only 10 min walk from Hotel so getting around is easy.
Overall myself and my new wife loved this place and would love to return one day, in fact we are already looking at planning a cruise with a 3 night stop over in Miami so im hoping its sooner rather than later.
