Fabulous hotel with fabulous service! Food excellent and so was the spa. The only downside was the $25 taxi fare to South Beach but if you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of South Beach then this hotel is a dream. We would definitely go back.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Four Seasons Hotel Miami

Death by 1000 elevator rides.

from MrBiggie
Nice property, fancy art in the lobby, very Miami chic and futuristic Asian meets Latin decor, but God help you if you're driving a car on your visit. It's in the financial district so you WILL drive a car to get here (unless you're a Latin banker that is, or a national geographic reporter doing a story on Miami's haitin cab driving community)

It takes not one but "TWO" elevators (one of which is less snappy) to get from the valet parking area to your room. At first it didn't bother us, but after day three this hotel is permanently off our list. It's like a fancy French dinner with tiny servings, or a pair of cheap high-heels. Looks terrific but feels uncomfortable. Girls weekend.. this was our first and last stay here.

An Excellent Choice! Great Location...

from NYDC
After spending a few weeks going back and forth on where to stay in Miami (and watching hotel rates go up), I booked this hotel with some girlfriends from college days to celebrate a birthday in the group. We got what I consider to be an excellent package (3rd night free and a $100 credit) that made it less expensive than many 4 star properties in the area.

This is not your typical resort hotel. If you want to be right on the beach or walk more than drive, this is not your hotel. It caters primarily to the business guest and is in the financial district. We were only a short drive from both Coconut Grove (great shopping & food) on one side and South Beach (nightlife) on the other. I would say you need a car though, whether rented (BTW most hotels I’ve visited in Miami charge at least $20/day for parking and you’ll need to tip on top of that) or taxi.

That said; the hotel is a little oasis! This was my second visit in six months and the level of customer service has been consistently excellent. The poolside service made us feel like royalty and my best friend and I fell in love with the steam room (they had eucalyptus in the steam, my skin was glowing after my weekend).

Our room was VERY spacious. Please keep in mind we were three women traveling with day & night wear, plus shoes, etc. and we started shopping the minute we left the airport and hit the Grove. Our room was on a corner with window seats on both sides and gorgeous views of Biscayne Bay & the city.

The food was great, we loved the egg white omelet for breakfast and the arroz con pollo we got from room service at 3am. It was piping hot and delicious!

All of the staff did a fantastic job helping us out with club & restaurant recommendations (the concierge introduced me to a lovely french cafe in the Grove) and we felt every inch the “princess” as we strolled into and out of the lobby. I also think the fact that we were snapping pictures incessantly bemused them slightly. (Hey, it was our 1st vacation together and it's been years since we left school!)

Anywho, I would definitely stay here again and probably will for my BD later this year.

Suites are Sour...

from theLuckiestGuy
What a terrible disappointment after the glowing reviews. We booked a large suite choosing cityview as we're in town for shopping only. $875 (taxes etc take it over $1000 a night) and no complaints at all, we're getting a 'suite' so we expect to pony-up (Ocean view suites are the same size BTW).. We check in to a shoebox of a suite, 12X12 living room, miniscule bedroom (the entire suite incl bath is smaller than our bedroom at home). This is a brand new hotel and dissapointment is an understatement. The suites are what I imagine prison cells to be like. So small we were uncomfortable. Almost comically so; no embellishment.
Save your money and stay at the Ritz in the Grove (honorable mention to Mandarin) or skip Miami shopping entirely and head for Palm Beach.
We are easy going, low-maintenance folks expecting a nice stay for the money and can assure those like-minded that they will 'not' find that here. Adequate service from the staff is the only thing that spared this property the more thorough dressing-down it deserved. Shame on the Four Seasons for attaching their brand to a property that puts occupancy capacity ahead of guest comfort.

Nearly perfect service in a downtown location

from alohajimmy
After a 3 day, four night stay, I am pleased to say that every engagement I had with the hotel staff was excellent. Despite my arrival via foot from the metro mover, the bellhops were very gracious. The check-in staff were well prepared and there was no line to check-in. While they took the opportunity to offer me a couple upgrades (at additional cost), it was all done very appropriately (and yes, I upgraded myelf). The concierge staff was very courteous and well prepared. When my cell phone battery was dying, they had a recharger easily available. They might, however, take a trip on their city's public transport to learn the best public transit route for travelers to Miami beach. The room was very attractive but a bit smaller than I expected, especially after upgrading a couple levels. Maid service was excellent. I like the Four Season bed/comforter much more than the Westin's which tends to envelope/bury you. The athletic center was large, well equipped and not excessively busy. The primary restaurant featured wonderful meals served by people who knew their business. Pricing was no worse than most other high level hotels. The pool was reasonably large and had the usual high level of service (I do not know if I will ever forget the offer of cucumber slices to cover my eyes!!!). One final thought; the hotel is located in downtown Miami, a $20 - $25 taxi ride from the nicer shopping centers or Miami Beach. Unless you are a business person, not much to do downtown. - Would I stay here again; if I needed to visit Miami's business community, most certainly!

Fantastic in every way

from allesandra
I have stayed at wonderful Four Seasons Hotels (and a few that are not so wonderful, but still close to excellent) but the service, patina, gracious setting, and value are incomparable. I have visited this hotel on several occasions, with one visit of eight days, the other two, slightly shorter. From the moment I arrived I felt like my arrival was "noteworthy" by the attention I received from the staff. Everybody knew my name, and remembered everything about my family and me on our subsequent visits. The rooms are soft-deco modern, but elegant and timeless. The pool area is stunning and the reason I would keep returning here, as opposed to many other resorts in the Carribean and/or Flordia relates to the pool-side Cabanas. I went with my five year old son and 20 year old daughter and the Cabanas protected us from the sun beautifully. Furthermore, my son thought the Cabana was a little play tent, which was fun. The service around the pool is stellar. Even when the hotel was fully occupied the pool area seemed quiet, roomy and peaceful.. One might expect a hotel of this type to be anti-child. But the staff went out of its way for my son. They sent him cookies and toys, played with him, talked to him. He felt like he had a true fan club by the time we left. The Mandarin has a tiny "beach" but cannot compare in service, style, beauty and pools with the Four Seasons.

Best in Miami

from charck
My sister and I stayed at the Four Seasons for a long weekend in early June and were happy to find out that we were upgraded to one of the condo-hotel rooms. It was a studio with full kitchen, but had only one gigantic king bed. I called down and a roll-away was set up immediately which was a large single and as comfortable as the very plush king bed. The room was on a higher floor than the regular hotel only rooms (non condo-hotel rooms).

Their signature restaurant Acqua was very good with unique dishes. The hotel itself seemed fairly quiet and empty most of the time including the lobby bar, 14-Thirty-Five, which had live music in the evening for the entire weekend.

The pool area was fairly large and the interesting cold pool was simply interesting-what do you really do with a 3 foot deep cold pool with trees in it? It was nice to look at. The cabanas with ceiling fans were perfect.

Valet was extremely prompt and the hotel staff overall were very helpful and professional - not borderline obtrusive like the "It's my pleasure!" -folks at Ritz Carltons.

Overall, this is the best property in Miami and currently the tallest. I will absolutely return.

Nice urban hotel with resort amenities and feel

from FS_Junkie_with_kids
We stayed at the hotel from July 15-18, 2005. It was a nice urban, resort hotel (wonderful fitness faciilities, Kids for all seasons program, spa, Miami weather, located right in downtown). For reference, it was a cross between Four Seasons Philadelphia and Four Seasons Punta Mita. The location provided a great jumping off point for sightseeing- science museum, Vizcaya Gardens, Key Biscayne, Seaquarium, Parrot Island Jungle, Little Havana, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and South Beach (all within 20 minutes). The service was exactly what you would expect from a Four Seasons property, always reaching a step beyond to meet the guests' needs. One evening, the concierge helped us pick out a few kids' DVDs from the kids' club after club hours which involved having security meet us there to open the door. The food in the main restaurant was delicious as was the pooside dining. Say hi to George at the front door. He was fabulous!

s Day

from hodgeon5th
This was a good weekend to stay at the Four Seasons....it was my wife's 1st mother's day with our 8 month old son. I took her to see Kenny Chesney in concert...and then came back to sleep in the very comfortable beds FS's is known for. The rooms are really nice and bathrooms are spacious. We went to Aqua for the mother's day brunch...the food was excellent in every way ...it had a wide selection of food. I was trying the stone crab claws for the first time....the deserts were perfect...I hope all their brunches are this way.
The Washington Wizards were staying there (NBA playoffs) but I didn't recognize 1 player! That's the watered down NBA for ya...
The staff was polite and very professional....my only big complaint was the $28 per nite they charge for parking....self serve parking is $24!! I'm not use to paying to park at a hotel I'm staying at...plus tipping it runs up quick.
I will still stay there but might try to find a place to park since I just wanna stay at the hotel only....no need for South Beach which is so overated now with rappers

As good as it gets

from shamrock02
I spent a good deal of time on this site looking at reviews of hotels in Miami and elected to go with The Four Seasons. This was not an adventurous decision for me and my wife as we stay at Four Seasons hotels quite often in our travels.

We had a great experience.

The hotel is not for those who are looking for a beach hotel, as this FS’s has more of a business/downtown feel to it. The building is also the tallest south of NYC. The lobby is on the 7th floor, as is the pool area, which is beautiful. As you sit poolside, you cannot imagine that you are downtown and on the 7th floor.

Rooms are very nice. Service is typical FS’s – top notch. My wife sent her jeans out for cleaning and when they were returned she noticed that they had sewn a rip in them. No charge and no mention of having done it.

The spa/gym is free when you’re staying at the FS’s. It’s top shelf. All the cardio equipment has satellite TV on the machines. Plenty of space and the equipment is first rate.

Food is outstanding. The courtyard feel to the poolside café has a nice waterfall and light music at night.

Great three day getaway. I highly recommend this hotel for discriminating travelers who aren’t looking for a beach setting, lots of bells and whistles and typical commercialism.

A downtown oasis

from tcgoes
We usually stay in South Beach, along the beach, when we visit Miami. This time, we opted for the downtown (Brickell) location of the Four Seasons. We had a wonderful time and the best part was the pool area which is actually about 4 floors up from the street level. Pretty amazing setting, with Palm Trees, Cabanas, a shallow "cold pool" and excellent service. It is a very quiet setting with a superb LA Fitness gym.

Top Local Tips for Miami

Use the free overhead railway If you're downtown, the free railway is great to get around.

Metromover Use the metromover and its connections with the metrorail system to get where you need to go. We were impressed with its ease of use

Miami is the best. Miami is great for dining. Try Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Best steaks ever. Miami is also huge for shopping, hotels (Four Seasons, Hilton, The Sofitel) and especially beaches.
