If you are looking for a sophisticated hotel with world class service, a top rated restaurant and spa/pool to relax...look no further! Even with the substantial road construction currently taking place in downtown Miami, this hotel is Worth it!! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and found the location perfect (it's about 15-20 minutes. Drive to south beach...depending on bridge traffic). The mandarin oriental is a world class hotel chain and this location does not disappoint. It's a quiet property, but has all the elementsyoy would want for relaxation or romance (and was well suited for business travelers as well...there is a lovely restaurant scene just a few minutes drive/ or 20 min stroll away).
