My wife and I had prepaid for 7 nights in another hotel on Ocean Drive but checked out after 3 nights due to the excessive noise and moved to Metropolitan by Como for our final 4 nights. This decision was the best one we made as it transformed our vacation.
From the moment we arrived, the staff could not have been more helpful. Polite, friendly, smiling faces, respectful, conversational but not overly familiar if you know what I mean. Perfect balance. The entire hotel is nicely fragranced and overall has a calm ambience. The rooms were very clean, the bed was firm, the bedding of good quality and ours had a balcony that overlooked the ocean. Apart from the staff, the best aspects of the hotel are the pool area and private beach access. We spent most of our time going from the beach to the pool and back to the sunbed - tough choices! Lunch by the pool side is great - I recommend the burger and the pizza. There are limitless cups of fruit infused water and nuts available at no cost. On the rooftop there is a hydrotherapy pool overlooking the ocean, a very effective steam room and 'tropical' showers.
The hotel had only been open a few weeks when we arrived but if they can maintain these standards, it will be a massive success. The only negative I can think of is that there could be more food options for vegetarians (my wife being veggie found it a little limiting) and perhaps slightly bigger breakfast portions but that is being very picky and no different to other restaurants we tried out on Miami beach.
If you like a more boutique feel, a quieter location and fantastic service, this will suit you 100%. Well done Como, keep it up! My wife and I are missing it already and hope we can make it out there again.
