Fodor's Review

This opulent, all-suite hotel feels like an Asian museum, serene and beautiful, with heavy granite furniture lifted by orange accents, warm candlelight, and the soft bubble of seemingly endless ponds complemented by three oceanfront infinity pools (heated to 75, 85, and 95 degrees) that further spill onto the beach's velvety sands. Suites are a minimum of 550 square feet and are divided between the hotel's art deco building and its residential tower. Even if you can't

afford a stay at one of Miami's priciest hotels, take time to visit this most beautifully designed space and its three restaurants, which welcome nonguests. The oceanfront gardens are lush and painstakingly manicured, and rooms are as expansive as the premises and furnished in an Asian style that is at once minimalist and cozy. The beach lounges and beachside service are pure bliss.

A Strange Hotel

I stayed here for a few nights to visit a friend who was in town on business. This hotel just had a strange vibe to it, unlike any other hotel i've stayed at. The staff seemed cold and not interested in anyone who was not a famous movie star. The room was cold, bland, and simply overpriced. I did use room service for breakfast (which was $75 for breakfast for one person). I've stayed at the Loews Hotel before and will be returning next time. This

hotel charges $950.00 per night and I can get better service (and a smaller, but more comfortable room) at the Lowes for $299.

Top of the Line!

If you can afford it, this is the ONLY place to stay in Miami. Rooms and staff are excellent, if you want an ocean view expect to spend atleast $1,100 a night.

Perfect, but VERY expensive!

A truly falowless guest experience, from check in to check out, all needs are met without asking. But at $1,100-$3,000 a night (depending on the view and size of the site) only few people can afford such a lavish resort. They also have a 10,000 square foot penthouse suite that sells for over $15,000 a night. We got a promotional rate of $900, but rates went up the next month.
