Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Four Seasons is located in Downtown Miami not far from the up and coming Mary Brickell Village. It is a large hotel with mainly a business clientele, although there are few loyal leisure Four Seasons guests who choose to stay here too. The hotel is known for its multi-million dollar art collection, especially its monumental Fernando Botero sculptures. The hotel has a lovely roof-top area and pool and although the décor throughout the hotel is fairly bland, the hotel feels spacious. The highlight of the hotel is its enormous gym, which attracts members from all over the city. The Four Seaons Miami is a good option if you are a Four Seasons addict, or if you want to mix business with pleasure.

    Location 5.5 /10

    The Four Seasons Miami is located downtown, which is a 20 minute drive from South Beach. However, buses run to and from all major tourist sites such as Little Haiti, Little Havana, Wynwood and the Design District. The hotel is also within walking distance of the new up and coming place to be seen on a night out: the MaryBrickell Village. This little cluster of restaurants and bars is always rammed, so make sure you have a reservation and don't be surprised to see one or two leggy blondes fall over in a drunken heap!

    Accommodation 8.00 /10

    The hotel has 221 rooms, although the hotel looks like it should be larger. There are several categories, the main difference being in the size of the rooms. All rooms have the same decor and colour schemes. All are carpeted throughout and kitted out in neutral tones. The large bay windows let in plenty of light and open out onto a beautiful view of the pool area downstairs and Key Biscayne in the distance sitting on the sea beyond. Although the rooms are very plain and a little on the drab side, they are very comfortable. All have king size beds (you will not have a hard time getting to sleep in one of these Four Season beds!), a large flat screen television and a banquette lining the window, which give the rooms a cosier atmosphere. The windows do not open however, and the hotel is strictly non-smoking.

    Otherwise the marble bathrooms are well appointed and fitted with a bath tub and separate standing shower. The bathroom products are of the French l'Occitane brand. There is only one sink, so for those who like their his and hers sinks, you are going to have to learn to share!

    The hotel's suites comprise of a fair-size living room and separate bedroom - the corridor contributes to making the space feel a lot roomier. All sofas have a pull-out bed.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The seventy-floor hotel looks fairly intimidating from the exterior as the enormous building reminds of a bank right in the centre of town. However, the hotel has a multimillion dollar art collection, which helps in making the otherwise hard interiors. The most impressive pieces are Colombian artist's Fernando Botero's nudes, which you will find doted around the hotel from the ground floor, where the sculptures stand tall guarding the elevator shaft, to the lobby area.

    Stepping into the enormous lobby can feel a little daunting but the service is friendly, which puts you at ease immediately. Due to its size though, the hotel does not feel personal or intimate on the whole. The hotel opened in 2003 and has been very well maintained since. The dining room, we were told; would be undergoing a full renovation, which should be complete in time for summer 2011.

    Across from the main dining hall is a bar that is open from late afternoon into the evening. Outside, you will find the hotel's very pleasant pool area spread over two acres. The pool is one of the largest in Miami. There are lots of cabanas, sun loungers and tables for guests wishing to do some work or have food served to them outside. There are also two extra pools, a Jacuzzi and a kids' pool.

    The hotel has a extensive spa with a long list of various treatments on offer, however it is worth mentioning that the spa's size does take a away from the intimacy one may desire when getting a little R & R. However, after the enormous pool, the monumental gym will be sure to take your breath away! Operated by Sports Club/LA, the 50 000 square ft gym is also the preferred choice for many members of the community, so this area is usually fairly busy. Personal trainers are on call for one-on-one training sessions (at an extra cost) and the array of machines will keep you busy throughout your stay!

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The hotel has two restaurants and a bar. Indoor Acqua restaurant is undergoing a renovation and Bahia is the outdoor restaurant that lines the acres of pool. Bahia offers more of a casual experience offering a good old American fare, but with a Four Seasons twist, naturally. It is open only from 11:00am to 6:00pm. Acqua is located through the main lobby on the seventh floor and is open throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as Sunday brunch. Here you will be able to load up on some fresh seafood paired with a wine or two from the hotel's 200 bottles, including its ?green' wines. Across the hall from Acqua is the hotel Martini bar, which although needs a bit of a facelift, is a cosy den for pre or post dinner drinks. Although in casual surroundings, the service at the Four Seasons Miami is of a very high standard, giving its high end clientele nothing less than what they would expect. We look forward to seeing the renovation!

    The hotel is a 20 minute drive to Miami Beach.

    To know

    The hotel welcomes mainly a business clientele but don't be put off if you are going to Miami for leisure. The rooms and restaurant were undergoing a renovation when we stayed at the hotel, but the works should be completed in time for summer 2011. The hotel opened in 2003 and has been well maintained since but its does need a bit of a refurbishment to bring it up to date.

      • Location 5.0

      This large hotel is faithful to the Mandarin Oriental brand in its decor and facilities, although it did leave us slightly disappointed. We expected something of a more human scale, but this 300 room hotel could not make up for its shopping centre atmosphere. The hotel is an attractive place to stay, although its location does feel a little isolated from the rest of the city. The hotel has no beach but it has brought in sand to create an exterior relaxation area by the water's edge (swimming is not allowed here). The hotel is ideal for guests who are faithful to the Mandarin Oriental brand. The hotel is a good alternative to staying at a hotel in South Beach or Downtown. The high point at this hotel is dining on the Café Sambal-Restaurant terrace, which is set close to the water and facing Downtown's skyscrapers.

      • Location 5.0

      Without doubt one of our favourite hotels, the very stylish Viceroy Miami has it all with interiors by Kelly Wearstler and a spa designed by Philippe Starck that will wow you over and over again. Although a little bit big to be defined as a boutique hotel, everything has been carefully studied to give the same impact design-wise. Throw in the flawless service, the spacious rooms and the incredible food at the Eos restaurant, the Viceroy Miami runs right into our top three hotels in Miami. The hotel is located Downtown, far from the South Beach hubbub, so it isn't the best choice for those of you looking for a hotel centered around a beach atmosphere, but if you plan on hiring a car, the journey is worth it if what you are looking for is excellence from house-keeping to design. For those of you with young families, the hotel is a lot more child friendly than its quirky design lets on. With the longest roof-top swimming pool in Florida, if not the entire United States, kids will be enthralled for hours.

      • Location -

      Although the head office for The Standard Miami is far from organised, thankfully the staff actually on site makes up for it. The very hip and cool hotel is everything but standard and was easily one of our favourites for its spa concept and its design centred on nature. Very simple and effective, the upmarket beach house hotel only has 100 rooms but is widely visited for the day for the spa, so don't be surprised to see guests wandering around with (or without) fluffy white bath robes. The hotel is a little far from the Miami action, so a car is necessary. The hotel is ideal for holidaymakers wanting some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of South Beach, with a good quality spa, a good size pool and some good dining options. Not ideal if you want to be near the beach or the Miami action and you have a family of young children.

      The Hilton Bentley is a small hotel that was originally built to be a block of condos meaning that the rooms are fairly spacious; however, the décor leaves a lot to be desired. As the hotel is a new build, it doesn't have the charm of the Art Deco hotels in the area, but as mentioned above, this does mean that the room sizes are more generous. Technically the hotel's location in an area called 'SoFi', meaning south of Fifth Street, but it is still on Ocean Drive right on the beach. The hotel is the perfect place to stay if you are on a budget and you don't want to be part of the hustle and bustle of the heart of South Beach. Also a good choice if your priority is spacious accommodation. The staff is extremely friendly here and the hotel has a lovely outdoor pool area by its restaurant.

      The Marriott South Beach is a fair sized hotel located right on Miami Beach in an area technically called 'SoFi', meaning South of Fifth Street. It is still on famous Ocean Drive, but the area is a short walk from the main action. It is ideal for holidaymakers who are in need of some peace and quiet as the beaches are overall less crowded than in the centre of the Art Deco district. The beach here also seems to be of a higher quality than in the centre. The hotel is also extremely well positioned - its pool and deck are situated practically right on the beach, which means that you have a clear view of the ocean while sunbathing around the pool. The facilities and rooms are of Marriott 4 star standard; nothing too fancy. This hotel is ideal for guests wanting to stay somewhere good-value for money and within walking distance of the main Ocean Drive action. Although there are no specifically tailored facilities, children of all ages are welcome.

      Wave is a small Art Deco boutique hotel situated south of South Beach in an area technically known as 'SoFi', meaning south of Fifth Street in South Beach. Still on Ocean Drive, but far from the action, Wave is in a quiet area away from the bustle of restaurants and bars. The beach down at this end of South beach is one of the best in the city as it is a lot quieter and more relaxed. The hotel itself is undergoing a complete renovation, which will include a small pool in the backyard. As it is, the hotel is ideal for anyone on a budget looking for a quiet beach side base to explore the rest of the city from for a few days.

      Part of the South Beach hotel group, the Metropole Suites is situated on Collins Avenue right at the heart of the South Beach shopping action and is a great quiet and relaxing choice for those of you looking for good value accommodation in a quiet area of a busy neighbourhood! The one and two apartments have fully-equipped kitchens, which is great if you like to be independent when it comes to meals. At home away from home, Metropole Suites is a good choice for groups of friends or families for whom hotel facilities is not a priority whilst staying somewhere comfortable and tastefully-decorated.

      The Clinton is a small, pleasant and unpretentious hotel, and although it is not right next to all the activity on Ocean Drive, it does at least offer guests the peace and quiet of Washington Avenue. Therefore, if you want to get away from the liveliness of Ocean Drive, you can do so. The guest rooms look perfectly acceptable.

Like no other hotel in Miami, the sophisticated Setai proudly boasts a Leading Hotel of the World label and banks its success on simple, calm and soothing elements throughout, making it a perfect little haven of peace and quiet for guests needing to get away from it all whilst still having access to Miami's buzzing nightlife and beach scene. Although the hotel does welcome families, it is recommended that the children be extremely well-behaved to avoid any steely glares from Miami's high-society.

      The Versace Mansion has been converted into a small and very exclusive hotel now known as The Villa by Barton G. As you can imagine, there is nothing ordinary about this little haven of peace, quiet, fashion and flamboyancy! True to Mr Versace himself, Barton G has kept his spirit alive by keeping everything as it was with a few minor alterations. You can rent Madonna's suite (the only one with a bath tub) or Elton John's, both of whom were the designer's very close friends. For those of you who can afford it, this is a beautiful hotel to stay at for its stunning pool with 24 carat gold mosaics and meticulous personalised service. A world-famous landmark worth stopping by for a couple of nights.

      Cool, sassy and fun, the W South Beach is without doubt one of the highest-profile hotels in Miami and not without good reason. The most impressive aspect of the hotel is its $60 million collection of contemporary art alongside its impressive range of high quality facilities such as its bar, restaurants and pool. It is also located on the beach in a quieter part of SoBe. The hotel is one of the largest in the city and so lacks a little intimacy. A major downer however, is that the rooms severely lack ergonomics and the high quality finish that is expected for the prices charged. Otherwise the gimmicky hotel is fun, young and dynamic and is ideal for a wide-ranging clientele from groups of friends to families and couples.

Combining colonial cool with contemporary casual, this is the ideal place to stay for a wide-ranging clientele including yummy mummies who thank the bulky doormen with a "Thank you honey-bunny". An attractive hotel that has mastered understated elegance down to a T, has all the facilities you would want on holiday, from a rooftop spa to a renowned steakhouse, a funky chic bar to its very own art collection, the Betsy is one of the more pleasant places to stay in Miami. Located right across from Miami Beach, a stay here is ideal for couples as well as families with a big budget as a stay here does not come cheap.
