“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I really enjoyed my stay at MO Miami. The service was excellent. The valet parking was the fastest i experienced in my life. The room was really nice and modern with an Asian twist. The bathroom was luxurious. The wi-fi was $12 a day, but it was slow, when i checked out i told them that the internet was kind of slow, they removed the charge from my bill . Mandarin Oriental Takes hospitality to a whole nother level.

Great staff and wonderful place for a meeting. You would have thought I owned the place by the way they treated me. They greeted me and my entire team by first name all over the hotel. I had to ship bulky items to and for the hotel for a conference and they were very accommodating. Fantastic service and unbelievable rates.

The Mandarin Oriental Miami is the second Mandarin hotel I have stayed at. Every employee was there to assist you in any way. If you needed anything it was always given in a timely manner. The property is splendid and beautiful and the food was amazing. I am already planning my next trip back.

Room Tip: The bay view was wonderful!

The Mandarin Oriental is one of the best Mandarin we have stayed at. It is probably only second to the first Mandarin in Hong Kong. We arrived at 8:30am in the morning when the room was not ready. We were offered a free buffet breakfast which was excellent. After that , we checked in to a sea view room on the high floor. Although the decor is not the most updated, everything was well maintained. The service was excellent at the restaurant and the house keeping was good.
One more compliment is their valet service is so efficient and the $36 charge was reasonable compared to what other hotels charge at the South Beach. If you need to choose between the Bal Harbour Ritz Carlton and the Mandarin, I would definitely pick the Mandarin.

For those who do not drive, there is a free shuttle to go around to the Brickell Village.

Room Tip: Pick a room that overlook the bridge

The room layout, bed, service and view was fantastic. All of the staff were very helpful. The restaurant was excellent. Our friend had a car also and they let us keep it out front for a couple of hours for no charge. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Bay View is worth it

What a splendid hotel. Good staff, very friendly and helpful.
Excellent room, great views and room service was faultless.
Good pool and seating area and a "beach" as well!
Drinks not cheap but as one would expect for a hotel of this standard.
Sometimes you get what you pay for and here you get what you expect and more.
They are doing work there, but one must expect that if things are to change and improve.
We were allowed to use the spa facilities as we had a late flight. Wish I'd had a spa session now!
Taxi to air port under $30 for 4 of us in a big yellow cab!
Loved it.

Room Tip: high up facing the mainland!

The Mandarin hotel chain is something different. Service level is very high. This is in general also the case in this hotel. However, a few departments seem not to work very well. The arrival and check in was great. Also the bell staff is doing a great job and so does the concierge. Also our compliments to the room maids! We had some problems with the pool staff, but not with all the pool staff. Some were great, some of the staff members weren't so service minded. In the hotel bar it was the same. 2 great guys, but the rest was slow and not interested. The same we experienced at the breakfast. If you choose a la carte, you need to wait quit some time (30 mins) for your order (and the restaurant was really not full). So I think there is some work to do here. Especially when you visited the MO in Las Vegas or another MO, this Mandarin is lacking a bit of service compared to them. In general our stay was fantastic. The hotel has a nice pool area, a great private beach (you can't swim here) and offers a great view on the city. The rooms are well maintained, are spacious and have great bathrooms. It is really a very comfortable hotel. We will definitely come back and hope then to experience that they do something with the lack of service in some departments. Because when you pay a lot of money, you expect that everyting is perfectly alright.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a pretty nice view. Complete bay view, or city view with a partial bay view.
