We stayed on the floor that allowed full access to the concierge lounge, which offered light tapas-style meals 5 times a day (hot breakfast, lunch, mid-day snack, hot dinner and evening dessert), along with a full open bar with premium brands. If you are a light eater, you could eat here without having to pay to go to any restaurants, which is tough, given the great options in Miami. The concierges were friendly and helpful, to the point of having a personalized list of weekly activities and restaurants, created based on feedback from other guests. Our suite had a wonderful view of the water and skyline. The hotel is located within a 12-minute cab ride to South Beach, and a 15-minute ride from the airport. It was a short walk to the local touristy market, as well as to the Brickell area, which we were told is a trendy option for locals who do not want the South Beach experience. There are also café style restaurants within 5 blocks walking distance, and without having to wait for the draw bridge over the waterways. We were also very happy to see that there was a scale in the bathroom; the only other place we ever saw this was the Trump penthouse in Las Vegas and the Rosewood in Vancouver. We would stay here again.
