Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach Review

This grand 1950s hotel designed by Morris Lapidus retains its old glamour even as $230 million in renovations and expansions has added sparkle to the rooms and grounds, renewing the allure and swagger of a stay at the Eden Roc. Two towers—one original and a second 21-story tower added in 2008—sit alongside the huge pool complex, making Eden Roc one of the biggest and sleekest hotels in the city. The landmark public areas have retained their grand elegance, including the monumental rosewood columns that surround the social lobby space, centered by an upscale bar. In 2012 the jaw-dropping, 22,000-square-foot, two-story oceanfront ELLE Spa opened. The hotel's flagship restaurant, 1500°, is one of the best in South Florida.

    Tremendous potential

    This hotel has the potential to be a fantastic place a la four seasons or ritz. For now, it is just quite nice. The goods: 1) service was great--the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful (it was superbowl weekend and i know they flew in some "ringers" from other renaissance properties but I suspect the friendliness is always there); 2)the beach front is very beautiful; 3) the lobby is great looking; 4) the gym was very well-equipped; 5) our room was pretty spacious; 6) the beds were really comfortable. The bads: 1) there was a strange sewage-y smell in the lobby the whole time we were there, perhaps related to the construction next door; 2) although the gym was well equipped,I found a lot of room for improvement in terms of the age of the equipment. Also the "cardio theater" was barely working for the whole 4 days; 3) the rooms could use some updating and the bathroom was small; 4) the location is bit removed from the action; 5) there is a large, ugly construction project going on (they're adding a new tower). Perhaps when the renovation is complete this property will be truly high end. For now, it's still a nice experience.
