“Reliable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is one of those hotels you can rely on.
Great location, beautiful scenary, impecable rooms, great restaurant and a nice Spa.
Plus an always friendly staff... Mandarin is an organization that clearly does a better than good job at trainning its people and have they work with a sincere interest and dedication to the guests.
I'd say no other large chain does it as well.

We stayed here after our trip to Grace Bay Club Turks and Caicos, we left 5 star to only receive 4 star. We checked in and were given our room key, not taken to our room. The meal in the restaurant was good food but the service poor, no one to pour our wine or see how we were enjoying the meal. Generally the service was average and we did not feel as though we were in a Mandarin Oriental. We have stayed in Bangkok and you just cannot compair. It is also in a vey odd location. I would say the Concierge staff were excellent.

Very impressed with this property.The very best location surrounded by water, enhanced by top notch comfort and great service.The chains asian heritage is the bedrock of the service culture.
Many hotel staff say the right words but lack passion and conviction.Not so here.A genuine willingness to help and to say"yes" to your requests if they possibly can.
Will certainly return.

everything about this hotel is top notch! but the view is the best thing! oriental mandarin raises the bar for luxury on all levels! the white sand beach is not only peaceful, it also has one of the best views in the city! we dined here on business, and the food was outstanding.

Here's a hotel that offers a serene experience amid the bustle of downtown Miami. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the service is impeccable. If you have the time, book a treat at the spa. It's a treat.

I often stay at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami for business. I've always enjoyed the impeccable service, comfortable rooms, serene location and the restaurant but felt compelled to finally write a review after my most recent stay to recognize some extraordinary service - I accidentally left things in the safe including my passport which I needed for another trip just 3 days later. Not only did they quickly retrieve my items but fed-exed them to me ensuring I did not need to cancel/postpone my important trip at no cost to me. I will definitely be back my next time in Miami.

This hotel is in a great location on Brickell Key, just across a short bridge from downtown Miami. The staff were all courteous and helpful. The room and the bath area were large and well designed, and it was wonderful to have a balcony with a door you could open for fresh air and even sit on to enjoy the view. The the view is beautiful (not another wall of windows across the street or rooftops or such, as is too often the situation in high-rise hotels). Also the cafe in the hotel is wonderful. We had great sushi, great she-crab soup, and a great chocolate hazelnut dessert. All on a pleasant outdoor deck overlooking the bay. We are big coffee drinkers, so we requested an in-room coffee maker. They brought it along with some terrific ground coffee, much better than the usual pre-packaged coffee. This is not a brand new hotel, but it is beautiful inside, very well kept, orchids everywhere, elegant atmosphere, just a very pleasant place. There is also a small beach which we didn't have time to try, but it looked very inviting. I would definitely stay here again.
