I travel quite frequently for work and try to stay at a Mandarin whenever I can. Service is excellent, the hotels are immaculate, the rooms are beautiful and the restaurants/bar/lounges are always great. The Mandarin Miami has a beautiful pool area, nice gym and on an island which allows you to take a nice jog/walk along the water. The views of south beach are breathtaking. The staff is courteous and helpful and the rooms are beautiful. Since the hotel is on a little island you will need to travel about 5/10 minutes to get to Mary brickell village/downtown Miami so it is a bit secluded. In my opinion its still definitely worth stating here. The Epic Hotel down the block is trying to be a swanky Mandarin but not worth it. The service/experience at the Mandarin is 10x better.
