Reviewed August 1, 2012

My husband and I needed to relieve some stress and a place where we could forget about our recent hectic months and escape reality. we decided to go with a special " Stay for a day" and we upgraded it to an overnight stay with complimentary lunch, holistic hamam bath for two and access to the baths and pool area, and more...
Boy did it work! it was the most relaxing and stress free environment: no cell phone in some areas, soft voices, good spa music... the front desk clerk "JC" was very helpful, the staff was friendly and catered to our needs. We stayed in the medium garden room, we loved the design details and especially the mirrors in the bathroom :-) The room is not huge but there is enough space for what you need; most of your time will be spent outside. what you see in the pictures is what you get and it is awesome!The baths, steam room, sauna, sound shower...it is hot but your body will feel new and rejuvenated... next time i will get a massage in that room:-) Food was pricy but great. overall we had a very good experience and did not want to live we will definitely go back. TIP: the infinity pool has a surprise and definitely go into all the little water spots around the pool and follow the steps - do not be scared of the arctic plunge. Last: go during the week if you can there will be less people...

Wife and I just did a 2 nite staycation at the standard. Nice to get away from the kids. This place is retro chic, with a bit of art deco charm thrown in. Rooms are cozy, clean and comfortable. Spa is awesome, do the Hammam ritual 45 min massage, full body scrub and hot tub experience. Poolside is great too. Reserve your chairs early. Poolside attendants were awesome, Efrain and Santiago. Great poolside food and drinks Negatives - some spotty service experiences by the front desk, place could use a face lift outside, pillows are super mushy (down) and breakfast was blah. All minor things compared to the overall experience.

Booked a room last minute, excellent service on the phone. Fairly decent rate considering that it was 9pm on a Friday night (249 excl of tax for a medium room with a double bed plus a sleeper couch, private entrance, garden room). Plus for interior design and friendly and professional service at the front desk. Rooms are decorated in a contemporary, minimalist style. Located on a small island, the hotel is silent and peaceful, but you need to drive or catch a cab to get to south beach. There is a nice hammam (free for hotel guests) as well as a large pool overlooking the bay. Only minus was the restaurant service at the pool, they seemed to be severely understaffed, and we eventually abandoned the idea of having lunch there. Apart from that service was excellent throughout the hotel.

Get your deals @ Spa at The Standard during spa months! Well worth your money! One suggestion...do not park at the hotel, long wait to fetch your car and quite expensive, save the money for great cocktails at the bar! Best option, take a cab or park before crossing the bridge to Belle Isle where the hotel/spa is located. Great ambiance, very laidback and super friendly. Everyone seemed very helpful, came with friends and had a jolly good time! The chill ambiance, white robes, multitude of things to do, hamam, steam room, sauna, soaking stubs, scrub nook, mud lounge, polar plunge, swing area, fire pit, superb pool with music underwater! I was treated to a facial, mani/pedi which were great! Coming back for sure...i suggest you do as well!!! Just dont expect uber luxury..if you're looking to chill, take it easy...and get great service, I'd say this is it.

Take a break from the madness in Miami by staying here - at least during the week. Rooms are basic - but the option to have a ground level flat is ideal. Food is great, service - especially at the pool is fast and friendly. Even more so the Standard is a great option for lunch - after being on the boat all day!

We stayed at The Standard for a weekend business trip and really enjoyed our stay there. First of all, I did like how it was located on an island, separated from the hustle and bustle of downtown Miami. Very peaceful. The rooms are the perfect size for two. Reminded me of the perfect beach bungalow. We stayed on the second floor and had exceptional views of the ocean. Although, I did notice the first floor rooms had outdoor tubs! Spent one entire day at the pool! It was pure bliss. Beautiful views of the water, excellent poolside staff! Even a dock you can walk out and watch the dolphins play early in the AM. There is also a fire pit, which unfortunately we were not able to enjoy due to a packed out schedule. The outdoor valets were prompt in finding us taxis to take us to our conference downtown. In addition, the front desk staff were very professional and courteous.

We live in Palm Beach but occasionally like to escape to The Standard Miami for a weekend. We have been there a number of times and have gotten to know several of the people that work there, including our favorites: Capri and Boris (bar tenders) Diego and Jeffery (wait staff), José Carrillo (front desk), Maria Alejandra and Maite (massage therapists), and of course Alex an Assistant Manager. All these and many others are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The place is full of life, it doesn't always work like a Swiss clock, but there is a lot of energy and it is a wonderful place to recharge one's psyche.
One caveat: the promotional information on the website can be unclear, so ASK questions about the special offers. Sergio
