Hotel Beaux Arts, Autograph Collection
Ranked #45 of 128 Hotels in Miami
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Booked into the JW Marriott Marquis for 1 night passing through Miami we were looking for a nice bed, big TV and easy access to downtown restaurants / amenities. Upon arrival we were given the option to try out the boutique "hotel within a hotel" of the Beaux Arts. Sensing our hesitancy they offered to let us take a look but warmly assured us they did not expect to see us again. Whisked away to the 39th floor we had the bellman also confident we would be happy with what he called "more like an upgrade". Doors open and we were (in shlumpy travel clothes with trekking baggage) given quite the royal treatment by everyone. The room was amazing; huge, spotless, modern and comfy (with an amazing big flat screen TV). Welcome drink and nibbles in the private bar much appreciated with courteous staff. Fitness facilities are several floors below and shared with the JW main hotel and are very nice and very well equipped for a hotel. Pool was a big plus though unusual (steel so lots of noise when underwater) saline and a good size for laps (though no lanes or anything). Basketball court / bowling / billiards / golf simulator look nice but were empty.
Only downside was room service (hey, BIG TV with a couch after Central America back country beckoned!). Limited menu and expensive with one of the dishes full on ineddible (credited back immediately). There are several restaurants in the hotel and many REALLY good ones in the area = a much better idea for next time.

We stayed here for the weekend and overall had a nice stay. The rooms are ultra high tech, which is kind of fun. The bed was very comfortable, we heard no noise from neighbors or the hall, and the blackout curtains kept the room very dark - made for a great nights sleep! We receievd a welcome cocktail, and there was free water and soft drinks all day near the check-in area which is always a nice touch. However they stopped re-stocking the drinks on the last day of our stay which was very odd. They left treats at turndown which we also loved (macarons one night and chocolate chip cookies another)! My main complaint with this hotel is the fact that it is inside the jw Marriott marquis. We were paying for a high end luxury boutique hotel and yet had to share almost all amenities with the main hotel. The elevators were so slow, the valet took forever to get our car, the pool was always crowded (note that it only gets sun in the morning and afternoon because of the tall buildings). We got a good rate so I wasn't too bothered by these things but had I paid top dollar I would have been upset. Overall I think this is a nice option for downtown Miami if you get a decent rate.

Really cool, trendy and chic hotel; The fittings inside the room were really top-notch and perfect for the current gen; Top-quality bath products too. The corner room had awesome views (City & portion of the Bay). The minuses were the shower (the pressure was really less, almost felt like the water would vaporize before it fell), the towels were average (not really matching a Marriott rewards category 7 hotel) and the quality and type of breakfast for a hotel of this stature was really poor.

Room Tip: Try to get a corner room.

This is one of the strangest hotels I have ever stayed in.it is billed as a " boutique hotel" inside a big chain hotel, the Marriott. It is clean enough, the staff nice enough, it is just a very odd room set up. Shared entrance with the main hotel, but separate floors for the boutique hotel.
The air conditioning is so loud you can barely sleep. The bath room is a big as many new york apartments but no bath tub, only an open shower, weird. the water pressure is almost nonexistent and the design of the rooms looks like a really bad 1976 disco in monte carlo. Really bad design, although all new and clean.
When a 20 something attendant showed me to my room he exclaimed "the electronics in these rooms are so complicated I can't figure them out,"... If he can't figure them put, how is 50 something me suspose to? Complicated beyond belief, annoying and stupid, frankly. Impossible to do even the simplest thing like turn on the tv.
The rooms are new and clean, located far from beach. The best part about this place is the daniel bouloud restaurant on the first floor. Even though the serve heavy french classics in the sweltering heat, the food is very good.
Enough said, not bad, not great. Would only stay agian in a real pinch.

When I say thin walls boy do I mean thin walls. My anniversary started with us not getting the room we booked. It was then accompanied by listening to our neighbors all night. We were up all night listing to their conversation and tracking there foot steps as they walked around above us. Yes the rooms are nice but who wants to listen to their neighbors all night or wants them listening to you. It reminded me of a college dorm and certainly not worth the price. There are way too many nice hotels in Miami. I would skip this one for sure

Stayed two nights on business and landed in a spectacular and enormous corner suite. All the best 'accessories'- TV in bath mirror, iPad to control whole room, LED lights change color with water temp from faucet....

Bed is extremely comfortable, great noise insulation. Superb staff and breakfast was outstanding. Can't say enough how enjoyable the stay was.

Incredibly clean, great service. Absolutely loved it and can't wait to return.

Even before we arrived, personalized emails asking if there is anything they could do to ensure a phenomenal experience.
From arrival to departure and every moment in between the staff makes you feel as if you are the only guest and this is your private residence. The service is beyond amazing as everybody strives to be part of a memorable stay.
The rooms are just specatacular. State of the art doesn't even begin to describe the electronics, lights, electric curtains and black out drapes. Every detail taken into account to make you feel special, even the pillows felt like they were custom made.
Stunning views, first rate amenities and a team that strive for excellence.... what more could I want? Five Star doesn't do this justice.
