We just returned from our fifth trip to Coconut Grove/Miami, and our first time staying at the Mutiny. It was everything we hoped for and more! In the past, we've stayed for more than a week and so rented a small apartment, but this visit was just a few days so we opted for the hotel experience. While the Mutiny was a little more than what we would usually spend, it was so worth it in so very many ways.
First of all, service when booking was superb. Melody at the front desk explained all of the options to me as well as the various prices, and was tremendously helpful when I mentioned that this was our first visit to Miami in some time so we were hoping for a room with a lovely view. She recommended calling the morning we were to check in, when they assign the rooms, and she also put a note on our reservation so they would take my request into consideration.
When we arrived, the valet took our car quickly along with our name, and reported on his headset that we were checking in. This meant that the front desk was prepared for us as soon as we walked in the door, which was terrific. The check-in process was very quick as we had prepaid one night, and within minutes we were in our room. It was beautiful! The floors were all tile, which made the room feel cool and airy. When I had made the reservation, Melody had asked which temperature we would like the room to be upon arrival, and it was perfect. She had also asked which type of pillow we preferred, which I thought was a nice touch. We had a deluxe one bedroom, with a very comfortable king-size bed and a balcony. The view was great! Although technically a partial view (all the full views are from the two-bedroom suites in the front of the building), we could see the marina and a good deal of the bay, and even the Biltmore hotel in Coral Gables if we leaned out and looked in the other direction!
Everyone at the hotel was so friendly. Our housekeeper, Mayra, was delightful and arranged our daughter's stuffed animals in a different way every day. The last day, she left her a box of pear juice, which was very thoughtful. The front desk staff were helpful whenever we called with any question. Humberto in particular was very kind when I was on a quest for coffee filters. The full kitchen was outfitted with pots, knives, and a cutting board - we could have made a full meal if I had been inclined to cook. :) The valet parking was very efficient and reasonably priced - it made us feel a bit like royalty, too, and had it rained during our visit it would have been even more convenient.
Our last night, we ordered room service from Atchana's Kitchen, which was very tasty. The food arrived quickly and hot, the gentleman who delivered it set everything up at our dining table, and when we were finished they picked up the dishes quickly as well.
The location is perfect - a five minute (if that) walk to everything Coconut Grove has to offer, directly across the street from Peacock Park and the water. The pool area is beautiful and serene. If my husband and I had not had our daughter with us, we definitely would have had a drink one night by the pool, with the fairy lights lit and the waterfall running! As it was, we enjoyed a glass of wine on our balcony with our lovely view, and counted ourselves very, very fortunate to be staying at the Mutiny. We hope to stay there again next year!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Few destinations can boast such a distinctive and colorful character as Coconut Grove. In the heart of this tropical paradise sits The Mutiny Hotel, a luxurious all-suite property neighboring the pristine waters of Biscayne Bay. A bright swatch of coral set against the intensely blue South Florida sky, the Mutiny's 12-story tower epitomizes the South Florida style; vibrant colors compliment chic accommodations elegantly decorated in a modern-lavish motif. Long a playground for the elite, The Grove - as it is known by locals - is also a second home to many celebrities, artists, and jetsetters. Its entertainment and shopping district reflects the quirky-yet-sophisticated nature of its residents, and visitors can find everything from haute couture to haughty kitsch in the many shops at CocoWalk, steps from The Mutiny's front door. After all, where else can you see stars in broad daylight, dance through an island festival, and enjoy dinner at a funky cafe? Only at The Mutiny. ... more less
