“Amazing Pillows”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

I stayed with a friend in Fontainebleu, Miami. I have never slept so well before. The room was very comfortable, clean and the pillows were like no other. We had a great time and enjoyed the poolside. They have fun events going on, depending on the season.
The only down side, the price, but it is a luxury hotel in the heart of Miami beach so it is definitely worth the money.

Headed down to Miami for my Bachelor party with a few close friends and Fountainbleu was hands down the right choice. Everything is right there at the resort. Great restaurants with variety, state-of-the-art Nightclub, pool scene, relaxing spa and nice rooms with great views. If you want to go out in South Beach, you are a 10min cab ride from the hub. I stayed in a tresor tower Jr. 1 BDR suite and it had plenty of room. I reccomend staying in this building, it's one of the newer ones. Also, keep in mind on the weekend the pool scene is more party than loungy. It is expensive but you are paying for location and convenience. I worked with Rafael in group sales, who could not have been more helpful. He understood my needs and booked us in exactly what we were looking for. It was a very memorable Miami exeprience, thanks to the Fountainbleu!

Room Tip: Tresor Jr. One Bedroom or 1 BDR Suite.

The Fountainbleau was electric!! The staff for the most part went above and beyond our expectations. There was never a dull moment during our stay. The grounds were immaculate, the pool area was like nothing we've ever seen and the bar scene was unbelievable. The location on South Beach was perfect. I can't express how much fun the Fountainbleau was. We saw a laundry list of celebrities during our stay on top of the regular patrons that proved to be some of the best people watching ever experienced. Saying that this place is expensive would be a serious understatement but worth every penny! I would say that it is no place to bring your kids but there were plenty of families there. It is the perfect place to experience South Beach!

I never write reviews nor do I ever have time to applaud or critique hotels. However, from the moment I checked in here the experience was wonderful. Athina, one of the front desk workers might be one of the best hotel employees around. I have stayed around the world at all "5-star" resorts and have never had someone that stuck me like she did. The hotel in general is very nice, aside from the fact that the location is some ways from south beach. Honestly, what else do you need though; you have LIV Nightclub, great restaurants (I would recommend Gotham, although the cafe has unbelievable sandwiches), amazing service, and the hotels efficiency and attention to detail shocked me. I would highly recommend this hotel, it is a cab ride away from South beach and is a resort in itself.

Good Luck and Safe Travels

Room Tip: Ask for Athina

Spectacular Resort; we were here for a conference so had the opportunity to use the conference facilities as well as the rest of the resort. Really enjoyed everything about the resort, pool was fantastic, beach was great, food in the restaurants was very good. Only 2 negatives: One, expense...expensive as HECK....but what's not on South Beach. Two, the beach "closes" at 6....seriously? The sun doesn't set until 7. They literally did everything they could to pull our chairs out from underneath us an hour before sunset. I guess that is what you get with "hourly employee's " though. Other than the negatives, this was an excellent resort.

I stayed at Fontainebleau for 12 days for work. My favorite part of the trip was having meals at La Cote by the pool. (Ke) Bryan was our waiter and was fantastic. A lot of energy, happy, enjoyable. He was my favorite part of the trip!
