“Wow, what a hotel!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

A great hotel in the heart of the city. Absolutely beautiful and worth every penny. Our suite overlooked the Miami Skyline. The staff was awesome. They really pay attention to every detail here. The bed was comfortable and bathroom was huge. If you can swing it, do it.

Room Tip: View of the skyline is a must.

Just spent a much too short weekend at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami. We had a beautiful suite with a view of the Miami skyline that we decided to keep in spite of the hotel's offer to upgrade us to an even bigger room. Lovely minimalistic sort of decor with very comfortable bed and huge bathroom. After a day of golf the tub was perfect!
We had friends join us for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in our room - room service was terrific and fast. We then had dinner on the terrace at Cafe Sambal and we all enjoyed sushi and fish with a beautiful view of downtown.
This isn't the sort of hotel where you walk outside and down the street to a lot of action filled restaurants and clubs but we enjoyed the peacefulness of the property. We've done the South Beach scene in the past and it's a lot of fun but here we got exactly what we were looking for.
Very professional and very nice staff and we would love to come back another time.

I attended a conference at the Mandarin, Miami in early May. I have to say that this hotel has it's act together. The attention to detail, the high quality serivce, the impeccable grounds, food views and location were exceptional. The staff is trained in the classic Japansese model of service. Even the housekeeping was incredibly friendly and always making sure we had everything we needed. I nornally stay in South Beach when i visit Miami, but I think this hotel is a great alternative. The hotel is on Brickell Key which is an exclusive residential community. The location is convenient to shopping and dining and only about 10 minutes to the beaches.
My only complain is that there is no bar. You can order a drink in the lounge or at the pool but they go "somewhere" to prepare it. Great experience!

From the moment you arrive the staff is friendly, prompt and very professional. Terrific restaurant options on-site from Azul which is their more formal, to Cafe Sambal...fresh seafood, sushi and cocktails overlooking the bay with patio setting. Lunch by the pool is very relaxing with beautiful bay views. Super comfy beds, robes, balcony on the water. I have been back three times in past month and will again.

We stayed at the Mandarin for my cousin's wedding. Walking into the lobby was amazing, its very zen. You feel peaceful immediately. The staff is kind and very helpful.

Our room on the 16th floor was done beautifully, however, not loving the openness between bathroom and room.

Room service was precise in delivering and setting up. Also, when I asked for a steamer I immediately had one delieverd.

I also was in my cousins suite, it was a corner unit on the 14th floor. Beautiful!

Would definitely stay at Mandarin properties going forward. Four Seasons, you have competition.

Being from Hong Kong I'm very familiar with the brand and their reputation. This MO was not quite up to scratch, there was a distinct lack of the feeling of opulence that you get at Asian MOs, but it was certainly pleasant enough. The staff were knowledgable and helpful, the rooms spacious and the view from our room was a nice surprise (we could see out to the ocean) but the noise from the hallway was remarkably (annoyingly) loud. I felt the reception/lounge area would have benefitted from a proper bar or at least the pool bar should remain open in the evenings. The pool area lacked the sumptuousness of a luxury hotel and the 'beach' was much smaller than it appears on their website. It was a $30 taxi ride to South Beach but if you're in Miami on business and need to be downtown then this hotel would be a good choice.

MOResponse, General Manager at Mandarin Oriental, Miami, responded to this review, May 13, 2013
Dear Guest,

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

I apologize that your stay was not to your complete satisfaction. I am sorry for the disruption that you experienced with the noise in the hallway. Our colleagues are trained to be considerate and discreet at all times.

We focus on maintaining the overall look and décor of the hotel to ensure absolute comfort and a relaxing environment. Furthermore, we are always looking for ways to improve and ensure our guests have an enjoyable experience. Guests comments are important to us and taken into great consideration on ways the hotel can improve upon.

Although, we are not located in the heart of South Beach, we pride ourselves on being a private island oasis away from the noise and high energy of the beach. The tranquility and surroundings of the pool and manmade beach, although not ample in space or made for swimming, provide a quiet respite for guests trying to get away from other crowded areas of the city. The hotel is situated minutes away from Mary Brickell Village, which offers an eclectic mix of upscale dining, shopping and entertainment options.

Thank you again for sharing your comments of your recent stay. We hope we will have the opportunity of welcoming you back.

Sincerely,

Jorge Gonzalez
Area Vice President
General Manager
