“Perfect stopover in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I had the opportunity to experience the Four Seasons Miami for the first time in May on a business trip through Florida. If you have not had the opportunity to experience a Four Seasons Hotel or Resort, you will find that wherever you are in the world, that there is a level of comfort and quality of service that runs through every one of their properties.

I love the service you experience at the Four Seasons and the Miami property maintains that high level I have experienced in the past. Small actions make the whole experience more gratifying. From the concierge making time to discuss jogging routes to the front desk agent who walked over with a ream of paper when I was printing up my ticket in the lobby and wanted to make certain I would not be inconvenienced if the paper ran out.

This hotel definitely caters to the Corporate client, it is in more of a financial district however, the ocean is quite close and Key Biscayne is just minutes from the hotel. The outside pool is spacious with a fair amount of areas where you can have some privacy and it offered great views which is refreshing when most city hotels have indoor pools.

Overall, a wonderful experience which to be honest, I would not expect anything less from Four Seasons.

Room Tip: I prefer the higher the better so I can enjoy the views. Get a high room facing the ocean.

Ok....so you have high expectations of the Four Seasons for a reason. This place was perfect! Everything. If the price point is in your budget, pick it. Down side if you are looking for one is no beach but do what I did and walk to the Rickenbacker Causeway for a bit of exercise. It's beautiful and about 1 mile away.

If you are looking for an in town (Brickell) hotel with a great pool this is it. There were too many children for my taste but that's okay. The pool area is unique, big and comfortable. Lots of locals seem to be around for the gym that is attached to the hotel. I think they get use of the pool for laps.

Tip....while you are at the pool, visit Alex for a massage. The man is exceptional.

Fish tacos at the pool side restaurant were amazing. Breakfast both days was very good. I had eggs Benedict one day and the Mexican egg (heuvos rancheros??) presentation the next. Both were great. Don't miss the restaurant for an evening meal too. I don't recall what I had but I completely enjoyed it.

Have fun!

Friends had a wedding at the hotel. Checked in day of event and enjoyed everything. Went to event which was great. Travel time to bed was moments. (great idea considering current DUI laws). Had a great poolside breakfast and checked out. Staff was everything we expected from a Four Seasons.

I have nothing but positive things to share about our experience at the Four Seasons. The location is great (though not on South Beach, it is in the Brickell area and close to lots of boutique shopping and restaurants). The pool was great and the service impeccable.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room near the elevator - it can get a bit noisy.

Housed in a gigantic multi-use towers on Brickell Ave in the downtown area, the Four Seasons cuts an impressive figure on the Miami skyline. Access is via either a street-side set of stairs or off a side-street access car entrance. The first lobby is cool, impressive, dominated by Botero sculptures, and perfumed with a very specific scent that you either love or hate (and will possibly knock you off your feet depending on how sensitive your nose it),

Up on the seventh flour is the actual lobby, with check-in, concierge, Edge restaurant and pool access. Then, across the lobby, tucked in the corner is the elevators to the rooms, which are on floors 20-36. This multi-step process to get to your room can seem a bit like a gauntlet, even if I understand why it is advantageous from an architectural and security viewpoint.

My room was #2415, an executive bay view suite. It was amazing. Bedroom, corner living room with dual exposure, and large bathroom with WC and separate stall shower and bath, all done in an clean, neutral color scheme with small accents of red. The views were over the adjacent residential towers, but they did not diminish the view to Biscayne Bay. The layout was practical, luxurious and provided ample room to spread out and also hide away your belongings if you wanted to have guests come over.

The 7th floor pool area (housed atop the parking garage!) was glorious. A palm-tree dotted wading pool with hammocks installed, a standard pool, a jacuzzi and another smaller jacuzzi-shaped wading pool for kids. It was easy to find whatever kind of poolside perch you might be seeking.

Though we didn't eat at the Edge, we did have drinks there each of the three nights we were there. The staff was all friendly and personable, and mixed some tasty drinks, especially off the hotel's drinks menu. For what it's worth, there are a variety of other dining spots within walking distance of the hotel, should you feel like getting off-site and trying some more local spots.

All my experiences with the staff of the hotel were very positive, from doormen to desk to cleaning staff, which befits a property of this caliber. The building itself is impressive, and comfortable despite its slightly chilly grandeur. I can strongly recommend this property to anyone who wants a five-star property and doesn't require a beach out the front door. Well worth it!

Room Tip: There are buildings in front of the hotel, there's no escaping them. But higher floor rooms hel...

Last night of our trip, spent our last day on loungers under the palms around the fabulous pool (complimentary granita was a nice touch). Spacious comfortable room. The Edge restaurant was very good in the evening, and food and service around the pool during the day was good too (though the menu is limited). We had a late check out then lounged some more before changing in the pleasant spa.
All in all, an excellent five star stay at a great rate (we booked at fairly short notice through myprivatetravel.com for $180, which is less than we were paying for a four star place for the preceding nights elsewhere. Also check yeego.com). Highly recommended (if the downtown location suits you).

You expect a certain level of service, facilities, etc when staying at a Four Seasons, but this property exceeding all expectations. As others have noted, the staff and service at this property is simply outstanding from the bellman when you arrive thru checkout. Room was spacious and well appointed with high quality amenities. Nice sized bathroom, good lighting. I was attending a conference in the building - very nice area for conference, food was good. In room dining was excellent - food/beverages was tasty and service was outstanding. Did not get to enjoy the pool area and would like to plan a personal trip to this property when I get an opportunity.

Room Tip: High floor with water view
