Bottom Line

What we loved

  • Exceptional service. Across the board, everyone we encountered went above and beyond our expectations.
  • Great location in Brickell Key.
  • Spacious Junior Suite with comfy sofa & soaker tub.
  • Million dollar bay view.
  • Twice daily housekeeping & turndown service.
  • Nice-sized gym with plenty of equipment.
  • Large, comfortable bed. Requested firm pillows which were placed in the room upon arrival.
  • I was able to communicate via text & the staff was very responsive.
  • Ample storage including a bath cart which housed additional towels.
  • Large lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows with expansive bay views.
  • In-room amenities included plush robes, comfy slippers that didn't disintegrate after 1 wear, and water was provided in glassware.
  • Great-tasting food (breakfast & dinner)

What we did not like

  • Safe in the closet is at an awkward angle.
  • Wifi is slow (7 Mbps).
  • The pool is small and the hot tub was closed.
  • The balcony has a ledge that we kept tripping on.
  • TV response time was slow. When you turned it on you would wait up to 30 seconds for it to register & then another 30 seconds for it to turn on

Verdict

Book a stay through Mandarin Oriental's "One More Night" promotion, which offered a complimentary third night when you book three nights. Under their Fans of MO program our booking came with daily breakfast ($83), one time dining credit ($100) and a late check-out (1pm).

My friend spoke highly of the MO Miami for years and I was excited for our three night stay there. We had a wonderful time and now have a new bar for luxury hospitality. Excited for our upcoming stay at MO New York in the fall.
