Swanky hotel for hipsters. Great rooms in a fantastic location in downtown Miami. Great restaurant (Quinto) and room food service. Little nuisances included no soap, no coffee tabs, called 8x for room service, took 30 minutes for car valet. Spectacular views of downtown Miami.
Stunning views , excellent service . Had a wonderful stay . This place is extremely clean and up scale . If you are after pure luxury than this is the right place bang in the middle of down town lots of restaurants and cafes and shopping places. I would definitely go back.
We went on a quick 2 night trip to Miami and booked this hotel at the last minute, thinking it would be super convenient to have easy access Brickel Center and such a great location. Of course the design is really nice and the hotel had all the potential to be great, but it evidently became a "party hotel" and because of Miami's post-pandemic boom, it doesn't need to make much of an effort to be fully booked all the time. Our room was dirty and the furniture already felt worn & run down (despite it being so new). We saw 2 cockroaches in the span of 2 nights and found old Halloween candy in a dark corner of the room. Our neighbors party really hard one night and we could smell their weed in our room with the door closed (balcony door) and the next morning our balcony was full of trash. The continental breakfast looked nice at first but the quality is really mediocre, our bagels were moldy. Waiters were really nice though! Literally, they had mold. These are not things you expect when paying more than $500 a night for a double room. Don't stay here unless you are under 30 and just want to party and crash and not mind getting ripped off. Location is amazing & design is beautiful, must say that.…
I will try to be as objective as possible in my review. My personal experience on this stay was atrocious; but I will try to give a balanced view for the benefit of other travellers. I have stayed at East 4 times pre-covid and recently post covid. It is not a luxury hotel, it is not a place to expect 5* star service and it is not for those seeking a quiet boutique hotel. All that is OK and my first 4 stays were fine despite the limitations. These limitations are inconsistent customer service, checking in that takes an eternity, staff that are super friendly or surly. All this is OK too, because East is well placed. If you like downtime Miami and don't want to pay the prices of the four seasons or the Mandarin Oriental; but be close to the shops (East sits on top of the Brickell Mall with direct access), it was the place to go to. The prices were (and are) very good. The rooms, especially the apartments (if you are two or more couples or a family) are spacious and comfortable. This is why I stayed 4 times and when visiting Miami for the first time since lockdowns I did not hesitate. East post covid is not the same. Yes you still have the chaos of getting to stop your car, and the interminable wait to check in. But there was something familiar about this and almost comforting! The hotel has a popular club that is super busy on Friday and Saturday nights with lines going back quite far. This was never a problem because the men controlling the crowd were always courteous and as long as you were staying in the hotel, they let you in without issue. Covid has changed things or the policy has changed, I don't know. Half an hour wait to check in, but made up for by the most charming front desk person. Room wasn't so positive, needed to ring down for a number of things and for maintenance. To be fair, these were dealt with. Housekeeping was another story. They try to offer you a discount not to have housekeeping!! Who wants to stay in a hotel for 5+ days and not have their sheets or towels changed or their room cleaned! One time, housekeeping didn't show despite us being out from 11:00 am to 5:30pm. When we called in, we were told that they stop at 6:30 and if they don't get to us by then it is tough luck. They also suggested that we must leave the room because of covid precautions. Our assurances that (1) we were all fully vaccinated with certificates to prove it and (2) we would settle for just cleaning the bathrooms and we would sit in the sitting room with masks on fell on deaf ears!! The refrain that we got on this occasion and other occasions is " it is out of respect for our staff and their protection". The guys that manly man the lines for the club have become very surly, aggressive and impolite. As you approach from your Uber, they take an intimidating stance and bark at you to find out what are you doing there. What makes this laughable is the knuckle heads don't seem to notice that about 10 feet further on, there is a ramp that leads to the front door and if you take that route you avoid any contact with them. If you ask them to tone down their aggression, they become more belligerent. God forbid you should threaten to complain, because you get told that they will throw you out of your room!! When you do complain, they disguise their lack of care for you as a customer with some platitudes but the underlying message is very loud and clear, our staff come first and we don't really mind if they disrespect you, as long as you don't disrespect them. That they intimidated you and stood 3 inches from your face threatening you goes unanswered because it is for you to respect them regardless. Needless to say, I don't condone disrespect to staff members but I would like to be treated as a valued customer. I am sorry to say, I shan't be returning to East. You may go there and have a different experience, they are that inconsistent; but my advice don't risk it - certainly not during busy periods. There is an SLS across the road, you might get more respect there.…
The East is a great hotel.....nice location, good food, night life, access to the Brickell City Centre and great rooms. Seems like a nice concept and it works for guests travellling alone, for couples, or even families. Rooms are nice and the suites are very spacious, they have great views and the balconies add a nice touch. Bad thing at the East is the contrasts you will find. I have stayed here a couple of times in april and may 2021. Staff is very nice and helpful at check in, but if there is an event and some celebrity is about to walk through the lobby you are in for some rude comments and bad attitude. It is also evident front door staff at night (same door for going up to clubs or into the lobby) will profile you based on looks, sometimes (only when they deicde to) they will ask to see your room key before they let you go into the building. Another problem is you will see people smoking in the balconies (even though "it is not permitted") and you might have a smell of marihuana courtesy of someone on your floor. I had a bad experience with a guy from security asking me to leave the lobby thinking I was not a guest, but next morning at 8 am he was very kind with a guy drunk out of his mind and not being able to get up from the floor. The guy was not able to articulate his name or if he was a guest at the hotel......but the security guy (same one trying to kick me out of the lobby) was very patient and helpful with the drunk person. So in very few words: great hotel, but you might have some incomprehensible contrasts.…
