After six nights at the Mutiny, we left with fond but mixed feelings. Here is how it fared in our "most important in a hotel" checklist:
Sleep: all rooms are suites, and the bedroom, though small, was adequate and totally darkened by the blinds. Bed not large and a bit soft for my liking. Slept fairly well.
Wifi: fairly good connectivity, free of charge. Our of order for a few hours.
Bath: our suite (deluxe) had a shower over jacuzzi bath. Drawback: not enough hot water to fill it. Solution: fill about a third with hottest water, wait 15 minutes and fill it up. However, guests shouldn't have to seek solutions for hot water shortages, should they?
Breakfast: this is one reason for our 3-star decision. Espresso machine was reported broken all week long. 'American' coffee just about drinkable, omelets, granola etc. nothing to write home about, and steeply priced for the quality. Service a bit confused. Far better options available in neighboring restaurants, but being on a work trip we had no time for leisurely brunches.
Amenities: a nice small pool and pool area. Gym and sauna, alas, closed for renovations for quite a while yet. Isn't it time hotels mentioned such closures on their websites, and/or offered some compensation? Not here. Three stars, then.
Service: generally friendly.
Location: lovely setting across from the Coconut Grove beach, close to the CocoWalk area, numerous restaurants. Try Lulu and Bombay Darbar.
General "feel" - rather nice. Wish I could give it four stars.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Few destinations can boast such a distinctive and colorful character as Coconut Grove. In the heart of this tropical paradise sits The Mutiny Hotel, a luxurious all-suite property neighboring the pristine waters of Biscayne Bay. A bright swatch of coral set against the intensely blue South Florida sky, the Mutiny's 12-story tower epitomizes the South Florida style; vibrant colors compliment chic accommodations elegantly decorated in a modern-lavish motif. Long a playground for the elite, The Grove - as it is known by locals - is also a second home to many celebrities, artists, and jetsetters. Its entertainment and shopping district reflects the quirky-yet-sophisticated nature of its residents, and visitors can find everything from haute couture to haughty kitsch in the many shops at CocoWalk, steps from The Mutiny's front door. After all, where else can you see stars in broad daylight, dance through an island festival, and enjoy dinner at a funky cafe? Only at The Mutiny. ... more less
