Fodor's Expert Review COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach

2445 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, Florida, 33140, United States See on Map

The luxury COMO brand brings its zen-glam swagger to South Beach, reinventing the art deco Traymore hotel into a 74-room, Paola Navone–designed boutique hotel that commingles brand signatures (excellent, health-driven cuisine, and myriad spa elements) with Miami panache. Don't expect blaring music here: located at the frontier of South Beach and Mid-Beach, the hotel is tucked into a quiet residential stretch of beachfront, and the hotel prides itself on the tranquil surroundings. Minimalist interiors play off natural lighting and the interaction of an intentionally simple color palette: black, white, and mint green. White leather tufted headboards match the white leather tufted closet doors, framed by the textured walls and spotted terazzo-inspired floors. There are 14 rooms per floor in this mid-rise, headlined by one oceanview suite per floor. Behind the hotel, you'll first find a sleek lounger-lined swimming pool and then a section of serviced beach area; but it's the swimming-pool-size mega hot tub on the roof that impresses the most, doling out incredible ocean views (and flanked by a four-cabin spa, a steam room, and sauna, to boot).

room

Fans of art deco style will adore the rooms decked out in sherbet tones of mint and pink. Terrazzo and marble flooring keep the room cool while geometric chrome accents lend a hint of sophistication. Rooms are equipped with King beds, complimentary bottled water, a mini-bar, WiFi, coffee maker, and safe.



YOU SHOULD KNOW Basic rooms provide no view, so spring for an ocean view room to wake up to the ever-changing palate of blues and greens of the water.

Don't forget the pie for dessert, with daily flavor specials. 27 Restaurant and Bar (5-minute drive) features a mashup of Israeli, Florida, and Caribbean flavors made with local ingredients in a refurbished vintage house.

Bars

The Broken Shaker (5-minute drive) is a hotbed of action for celebrities, locals, and tourists. Weekend day drinking parties are usually sponsored by different spirits brands and offer barbecues poolside. Sweet Liberty (10-minute walk) is a locals bar that's happened to have won numerous national awards for its cocktail program.
