“Brickell's Best!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Loved this Hotel. A pleasant surprise. The Bay Area was just gorgeous! Close to everything. The Resort Amenities are fabulous. I would defiantly go back again. We had our car, so it was easy to get around to South Beach and all the fabulous restaurants in the Area. The Fitness Center was the best. Top of the line equipment, Bay view, and anything you could need, fruit, water, towels.
The food was delicious at the Hotel and the service was outstanding. We had the most beautiful weather, and the beach sand was a perfect compliment for the Miami experience.A great find!

Room Tip: Love the balcony seating and views.

its a Mandarin so from amenities to service.. the view etc .. its up to the standard meaning its a great! ..but Clearly not the place to stay if you want to hang out in south beach, by car it takes time, there s traffic etc...not practical at all , i would recommend to take a hotel in south beach if you come to Miami for that..

Finally we have been victim of a theft in our room, i didnt find the way the hotel handled that being really business friendly ..they could have done some commercial gesture given the price of the room and the standard of the hotel...not that i was looking to save few bucks...just out of principe...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor. Your constructive comments are very important to us.

Although we are not located in the heart of South Beach, we pride ourselves on being on a private island oasis of serenity away from the high energy of the beach area with a Five-Star Spa and excellent restaurants. The tranquility and surroundings of our pool and man-made beach, although not made for swimming, provide a quiet escape for guests trying to get away from other crowded areas of the city.

I am alarmed to learn of your statement regarding a theft in your room. We take such matters very seriously and would like to speak with you to inquire in detail what transpired.

I hope you will give us another opportunity and I look forward to speaking with you soon. Please call the hotel’s Executive Office when convenient for you.

Sincerely,

Jorge Gonzalez
Area Vice President
General Manager

I stayed at the Mandarin Oriential for business and had a good overall experience. The rooms were a good size and very comfortable, the gym / pool / spa was a great break during a hectic week, and my team had an awesome meal at the japanese restaurant in the hotel - killer sea bass. The service was a little slow in comparison to peer chains and it seemed that there might have been some turnover recently, but nothing too bad. If you are a coffee drinker, I do recommend calling in advance because there are not machines in the room!

Spent two nights at the Mandarin and we had a lovely time. We were on a family holidays so often felt out of place amongst the larger proportion of business people, but everything else was perfect: the decor, the staff, the views... even the lovely scent in the lobby which reminded us of eastern Asia! The only thing which slightly irritated us was the long waits for a lift to stop at our room floor. I understand that lifts are busy at certain times of the day and also know it is impossible to add new lifts in a fully developped structure as this one, but the long waits occured enough for us to get a bit frustrated with them... A minor point in the whole scheme however and would happily recommend this hotel.

It's our third time in the Mandarin Oriental, and we still love it !
Great location on Brickell Key, close to downtown but calm
Very nice walking tour around Brickell Key, and very close to the Marketplace with shops, restaurants and harbour cruises
Excellent starting point for visiting the Everglades National Park
The Sambal Café is also a great choice for breakfast and dinner, probably also lunch but we were on the road the whole day, so it was great to be back in the evening

Room Tip: City View or Biscayne Bay

I highly recommend staying here when in Miami. The location is hidden away from the hustle of Miami. The staff is very attentive, welcoming and truly glad you ate their guest. The view of the water when you walk into the lobby is very serene and instantly puts you in a good mood. One of my favorite hotels in Miami,
