Just spent a much too short weekend at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami. We had a beautiful suite with a view of the Miami skyline that we decided to keep in spite of the hotel's offer to upgrade us to an even bigger room. Lovely minimalistic sort of decor with very comfortable bed and huge bathroom. After a day of golf the tub was perfect!
We had friends join us for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in our room - room service was terrific and fast. We then had dinner on the terrace at Cafe Sambal and we all enjoyed sushi and fish with a beautiful view of downtown.
This isn't the sort of hotel where you walk outside and down the street to a lot of action filled restaurants and clubs but we enjoyed the peacefulness of the property. We've done the South Beach scene in the past and it's a lot of fun but here we got exactly what we were looking for.
Very professional and very nice staff and we would love to come back another time.
