Mandarin Oriental, Miami

Recommended Posts

We are thinking of staying here pre cruise.  Taking my folks to celebrate their 63rd wedding anniversary so want to stay somewhere a little nicer,.  Has anyone stayed here and what were your thoughts?

One of the best hotels in Miami. The only disadvantage is its a bit of an extra walk to get off of Brickell Key to go to the main sights/shops/restaurants of Brickell.

Suggest looking at the reviews in TripAdvisor.

Yes I read just about all of them, but I trust what I read here just a little more

It is a beautiful hotel.

 

It also has a man made beach.

 

The grounds are nice and fun to walk outside all around it and you can see some ships from there.

 

From the hotel it is about a 15 minute walk to some really good areas for restaurants and that include Mary Brickell Village and Brickell Centre.

 

To me it is one of the nicest luxury hotels in the area which I consider to be this one and Four Seasons.

 

It will be special.

Mandarin at the far right to give you a feel of the Bay.

From the front of the hotel you walk over a short bridge to get over to Brickell.

Yes, it is a really cool hotel in a unique location.

 

We always cut through there to get to the Miami River by boat.

 

Keep in mind the man made beach has no entry to the water.  That doesn't really matter because the pool is so amazing.

And since a crocodile (not an alligator) has been spotting swimming around there lately, you wouldn't want to go into the water!!!

 

OP, it's a great hotel and wonderful setting.  It's also nice and quiet over there.

 

As others have said, it's a short walk into Brickell plus the free trolley stops there and you can take it right to Mary Brickell village.

I decided to book us there.  This hotel and the cruise is my anniversary and Christmas gift to my folks.  December won't come quick enough!

I am glad that you booked there.  It is very special.

 

This is one area we walk and visit on each of our stays in Miami.  

 

We look forward to getting back to Miami in a few months.

Random pics - the first 2 are the view from our balcony. The balcony was small but room to stand and look out. We were in 1715.   We booked the room w/ breakfast package. We chose the breakfast buffet for both days and with an additional $5 tip it cost us a whopping $7.50 each day total. Way worth it.
