Mandarin Oriental, Miami

Miami's trendy celebrity hot spot
VERIFIED LUXURY
It wouldn't be Miami without a little glitz and glam, and the Mandarin Oriental on Brickell Key, just outside of downtown, delivers with extraordinary service to boot. The waterfront property is a favorite of celebrities (think Will Smith) and it's no surprise why.

Rooms and suites offer panoramic views of the water and Miami skyline; the lobby and public areas are flooded with natural light and offer plenty of space to move around and the location offers easy access to all the city has to offer.

In addition, the hotel staff service is spectacular, and they perform their duties professionally while still being personable and helpful. The hotel also provides unique packages and specials that are frequently available for those looking for a trendy Five-Star getaway.
