A beautiful property with really interesting art everywhere. I've started staying here instead of the Hotel Beaux Arts when coming through Miami because the service at the Four Seasons is so much better. I come through Miami about twice a month and usually at least one of these trips requires an overnight stay due to an earlier connection than I can make. It's nice to be able to hang my hat where the staff "know" me and I feel at ease and at home. This is a more business oriented hotel due to its location downtown in the financial district of Miami, but the typical Four Seasons touch always makes one feel comfortable.
I really enjoy EDGE for lunch and breakfast, their dinner fare is good, but a little underwhelming considering some of the other restaurants in Miami. If I can get a good rate through my credit card then I'll use the credit provided, but usually end up going out to another location. One of my favorite things that they have is the "Tostones" on the lunch menu and the Carrot Bran muffin on the breakfast menu. The fitness center attached to the hotel is absolutely world-class and one of the reasons that I transitioned here instead of staying at the JW Marquis. They have classes almost everyday, weight machines and treadmills galore, along with excellent staff that keep everything humming. I wish they were open later as my flights usually get in late, but it's nice that they open so early. ( 0430, I think )
The concierge is excellent. The last time I stopped through, my flight was diverted due to weather and thus missed my connection, so I didn't have my bags. I had a meeting later in the day when I arrived home that I wasn't going to be able to change for. The concierge ( I wish my memory was better and I would tell you his name ! ) actually went and found a dress shirt very close to my size for my meeting. Simply the kind of touches that you won't find in a Marriott, or frankly, any other hotels. I am always impressed by the service and this last trip really pushed it over the top. These guys are awesome!
Thanks for the great stay, see you again soon!
