I stayed at the Faena with my husband for our 5-year wedding anniversary. We actually live in Miami so this was a little staycation without the baby for us. I booked a premium ocean view room by phone with the help of Raul Diaz. Raul was so helpful and set us up with a beautiful room, including cake, wine and handwritten note! Thank you, Raul!! We ate a fabulous dinner at Los Fuegos and the next morning had room-service breakfast overlooking the ocean, enjoyed the pool and relaxed at the spa before packing up. We will absolutely be returning! 10/10
There are not enough words to explain the sumptuousness and comfortable elegance you are treated to as a guest at Faena. Their holistic approach to relaxation and community is in paralleled. While every area was wonderful, standouts were Los Fuegos and the Spa. Their staff is magnificent and know how to care for your every whim. Thank you Solange for the welcome and checking! We will be back!
First of all, the Faena is the most beautiful hotel I've ever been to in MIAMI BEACH. They have a fantastic staff from right when you walk in the door, that have such excellent manners and energy!! I went to the second show this time called ALLURA and it was so an extravagant and exciting experience to be a part of. It is not your typical night in Miami Beach which makes it brilliant! So, if you're looking for a one-of-a-kind, liberating, exotic type of night, then you should definitely come here and support the lovely cast! I came to support my lovely friend Alana and her husband who have such heart-touching and intimate sets together that touch your soul. Alana is extremely talented as well as the rest of the team and I cannot wait to visit again and again and AGAIN! Every time I come I have a fantastic experience. I feel loose and free after watching the show! If you embrace the divine feminity and masculinity that is portrayed in a sentimental, beautiful, funny, and dramatic way... GO BOOK YOUR TICKET NOW :D <3…
Stayed at Faena recently with my significant other. Hotel is right on the beach and is how you would expect a ‘cool’ Miami Beach hotel to be. “in” crowd, Art Deco type building, swanky interior (which may or may not be your taste). Staff was friendly, beach nice, room spacious and clean. Food was very nice throughout the hotel. Also would like to point out that they have a nice outdoor bar area for pre dinner drinks and an a busy indoor bar for later boasting live music - really a great plus. Minor cons: - some of the room features & furnitures soemwhat dated (eg scratches, dents, spots) even though room was very clean. - valet can be soemwhat disorganized so plan in advance if you need your car urgently All in all a good experience, would not mind staying here again but also might check out another place next time round.…
My wife and I stayed at the Faena Hotel in Miami Beach for five nights and could not have been more impressed. The hotel is a work of art. There are fantastic murals in the lobby - and unusual but tasteful art and décor wherever you look throughout the hotel. Food and service is excellent, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the location on Miami Beach is perfect. We received a good deal of assistance in planning our trip from the reservation specialist, Mikael Villard, who was ever patient with several changes in our plans, and offered suggestions about restaurants and activities.
Hands down my absolute favorite hotel in South Beach—there’s no place I’d rather stay. I’ve been back three times in the past six months –each experience is better than the last and I always look forward to coming back. As impressive as the hotel is, the team of people are what make each stay exceptional. Everyone is so friendly and they go out of their way to ensure that I have a perfect stay every single time. I’ve stayed at many hotels in South Beach/Miami and they’re in a league of their own. Rooms and amenities are all 5-star and the spa is incredible.
My boyfriend and I were not hotel guests, just enjoying a bike ride and poked our heads in. We were quite shy and wondered if we belonged. And then Ty (may have the spelling wrong; tall, handsome, braided hair and eyeglasses) approached us. We asked if it’d be ok to look around and he welcomed us with grace, kindness, and warmth, so much so that my now-fiancé took him as a sign that it was the moment to drop to one knee and propose to me, which he did a few minutes later in the courtyard. I said yes. I help run an uber-lux hotel in Upstate, NY (The Maker Hotel) and am a 25+ year hospitality professional. Ty is emblematic of what all of us hoteliers should strive for in our work: authentic, available, welcoming…a friend. All my respect admiration to him. Thank you, Ty.
Nice Hotel. Overpriced but nice for Miami. Came for 2 nights. Centered around service and rooms and nice and funky. Would probably try a couple of the trendy hotels in South Beach next time as they seem to change quite often. Drinks are definitely extremely overpriced as well as food. I would say the rooms are above average priced.
Maybe it was because of the four day Presidents weekend. Maybe it was because there was a massive boat show in town. Either way, we got suckered into paying $2,500/night for three nights at the Faena, so we we expected opulence. What we got was a ripoff at a $400/night hotel. The location is excellent, right on a private beach. That’s the only positive of this review. Here’s the abundant negatives: * it was a windy day at the beach, so we asked for a canopy. We were told they were all reserved. There were only six of them. For an entire hotel. So we instead sat on the windy beach and enjoyed a $20 pina colada in a pre-packaged coconut. * so we went to the pool. You can’t just sit down, they find you a seat. But we were told all the lounges were reserved, even the empty ones that go with the cabanas, and the cabanas were all reserved. Come back in an hour, we were told. * our room, which was exceedingly average, smelled like mildew. They sent housekeeping with some sprays. The room was also quite dark, and the lights didn’t go up any higher. * as for Miami Beach, it’s nice. There’s a long walkway that I went on for a mile or so, seeing where it led. Turns out it didn’t lead anywhere. There’s not much to do here other than beach and restaurants. * there’s some fun art, including gold wooly mammoth bones. But the glass case is cracked, and, like the rest of this hotel, the display seems old and neglected. And that, dear reader, all happened within 24 hours. Because after the pool fiasco, we up and left the Faena for greener pastures — the reliable Four Seasons in the Brickell section of Miami, which was wonderful (see my review of that wonderful hotel for details). The Faena was nice enough to cancel our second and third nights, and we paid less than half at a way better hotel. Do yourself a favor. Skip this aging monolith.…
Went to the Los Fuegos restaurant at the Faena Hotel. WE came to celbrate my nieces birthday. The food we had was all a five star rating. The server we had was Stephan and the director of food and beverage stopped by to see how everything was. The service was superb and the food was exceptional. The appetizers, main course and desserts were all excellent. Couldn't say which dish was best, it was all delicious.
