Luxury hotel where the Miami River meets the Biscayne Bay

The word epic certainly resonates with guests at this downtown Miami hotel.  The building is a luminous exclamation point on the Miami skyline with striking, futuristic architecture and gorgeous marina. Guests can pull up in a yacht, and then dine alfresco at Area 31, an upscale restaurant known for its fresh local seafood and stunning vistas. The 411-room hotel invites more pampering at the Exhale Spa and the two outdoor swimming pools. Visitors flock to the pools nightly to sip refreshing cocktails and lounge in the private cabanas.

Transportation

Miami International Airport (10 miles)

Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (28 miles)

Highlights
  • Riverfront boutique hotel
  • Only hotel with direct dockside access by the marina
  • Exhale Spa onsite
  • Two restaurants: Seafooder Area 31 Restaurant and Japanese eatery ZUMA
  • Outdoor pool and cabanas with river, city and bay views
Rooms

High-style rooms capture city, bay and river views. Rich fabrics in ivory and beige lend understated elegance. Curved wood nightstands, jagged dresser drawers and floor and desk lamps create a penthouse feel. Guests will feel pampered with hydrotherapy air tubs and double spa bowl sinks. Flatscreens and Wi-Fi are standard.

Features

The hotel has an emphasis on hospitality and aims for business and leisure travelers who are used to a little extra love. Every night from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., guests enjoy a free wine reception in the lobby. The Exhale Spa -- a 12,000-square-foot oasis with 14 treatment rooms -- melts stress away with massages, facials, nail and waxing services. A glass-walled yoga studio reveals stunning views of the skyline.

 

There are private cabanas and two outdoor pools, but the true conversation piece is the marina, which is guarded and manned 24 hours a day. The slips can accommodate vessels up to 900 feet.

Excellent hotel

All around excellent. Totally worth the visit, I would recommend this hotel to anyone! I'm a Kimpton loyalist and this is by far my favorite one. Beautiful hotel with a panoramic view. The pool is nothing short of amazing, if you didn't feel like you were away from home, the pool will do just that

It was EPIC!

The place was fantastic! The hotel personnel were the nicest people that I have ever experienced, and genuine at that. Also, very close to a very happening downtown Miami area just off Brickell. Some great restaurants and bars. Dolores, but you can call me Lolita, Perricones, Oceanaire, etc. Much more fun if you are not into the total South Beach club scene.

Excellent Hotel

Great room with an excellent view of the Harbor. All of the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Nice large bath with separate toilet area, and both a bath and shower. While there is excellent coffee and tea available in the lobby, I can't understand why there can't be a coffee maker in the room...which means having to get cleaned up and dressed to get a cup of coffee :-(

Fantastic stay

The service is impeccable. The room and view amazing. There was no problem with my late check in, and the staff attended to any concern I had (and conceived of several I didn't!). I have recommended this hotel to nearly 10 people in the last 24 hours.

Top notch service

From the moment I walked in the hotel, all the staff was familiar with me by name and knew what I was in town for. They were attentive and helpful - remembering what I liked to drink and eat, and when I worked out, and recommended things in the city that would fit with my needs. It was by far the best hotel experience that I have had in a long time and I travel frequently. The restaurant and lounge were fabulous too.
