My wife and stayed at the Mayfair Hotel and Spa based on a recommendation from a friend. The rooftop pool and bar was rated as one of the top places to go in the area, but the view from the roof is less than breath-taking. You can sort of see the bay if you look around the surrounding skyscrapers. It looked like it would be a cool night spot, but it closed at 8pm on the days we were there. Apparently it's open late on Friday nights and they have a DJ. The area around the hotel was very walkable. There was an outdoor mall nearby with various bars, restaurants, and shops and many bars and restaurants within walking distance.
The wait staff at the hotel was amazing. We had drinks at the bar/restaurant called Spartico. The bar tender was great. He let us try all the beers before we ordered because he sensed that we may not like a couple of the draft selections. When we ate dinner there, he gave us both a free limoncello.
In the morning, we ate breakfast at the hotel. Our waitress was a cute older lady. She tended to our every need and joked with us the entire time. I told her I wanted to take her home with us and she said she gets that from all the men. She was great!
Note that at the hotel (and in Miami in general) they added a "voluntary" gratuity of 18%. You can adjust the tip if you want, of course, but the way the checks are printed out it makes it look like the actual total unless you look at the line items. We have extra to the wait staff at the hotel because they went out of their way and they definitely deserved it.
