I stayed here Memorial Day weekend for two nights. This was my second stay at the hotel and it was even better than the first because I was able to enjoy all of the amenities, including the awesome pools! This place has a great view of Miami from the 15th floor pool deck! Beautiful views of the bay, Port of Miami, etc. The fitnees center and spa area is a must see! There is also a smaller pool on the 50th floor wih awesome views of the city!
Stayed in a double room in December and was upgraded to a one bedroom suite in May! The rooms are top notch! The Neil George bath products in the suites are to die for! I could just move into this place with my clothes only. The suite was basically a small luxury condo.
Staff was very kind and helpful. This hotel is not stuffy and pretentious! Short walk to Mary Brickell Village for Starbucks, PF Changs, Balans, Subway, and other food spots. There is also a Publix grocery store in the village. The hotel sits right next to the Miami River and overlooks the bay. Remember, this is Brickell Avenue (Financial District and lots of Condos, just south of downtown). South Beach is a short drive away if that's what you're looking for. I love the Brickell area and will never stay on South Beach. Other options in the area include the Epic, Four Seasons, JW Marriott, Mandarin Oriental, and the Conrad. I have stayed at all except the Mandarin. The Four Seasons is also top notch (great place to relax, get good sleep, and good service!) but has a different vibe than the Viceroy. The Viceroy is a luxury boutique hotel for those who have an appreciation for the good life!
