In march I surprised my girlfriend with a trip to Miami to pop the question. We were greeted by every employee in the lobby upon arrival and the checkin was very fast and easy. I had planned to propose shortly after arrival and asked the front desk to send up champagne at 8 pm. At exactly that time it arrived chilled with glasses and complimentary chocolate and strawberries.
We ate at both restaurants that weekend and both were wonderful although pricey. Azul was delicious upscale dining and very quiet. That night I was disappointed to find that the hotel didn't have a single cigar cutter to be found. The next day we had a message from the concierge and a new cutter was brought to our room and we were told it was on the house because of the inconvenience.
The pool area is small but very nice and staff are very attentive.
Mary bricked village is a nice walk away and has some very nice shops and lunch spots. The only thing that could have been better was the price. It is an expensive hotel all around but if you have the means it is worth it. We've already decided that Miami and the MO will be our 1st anniversary trip. We can't wait to come back!
