Miami is brimming with luxury hotels, but none are as opulent as the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach. Originally developed in 1954 as a Morris Lapidus project, its grandiose look reflects the city's golden era. For its design the hotel won the '100 Years 100 Places' competition, sponsored by the Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects. Today's Fontainebleau is a result of extensive renovations to make the most use of its oceanfront location. The resort features nine swimming pools and the luxurious Lapis Spa, which offers unique relaxation treatments. Many of the elegantly appointed rooms feature private balconies for enjoying Atlantic Ocean breezes.

Highlights

In a city of many landmarks, Fontainebleau stands out for its historically-significant design and strategic location in the core of Millionaire's Row and the high-end commercial district. You need not leave the hotel to dine, shop or find entertainment as the on-site restaurants include Hakkasan, Michael Mina, Scarpetta and Stripsteak. Casual dining options include La Cote, Vida, Blade, Fresh and Chez Bon Bon. For after-hours hangouts, head to Bleau Bar, Glow Bar or Liv Nightclub, which are all located within the resort. Fontainebleau makes it convenient to find your shopping bliss at boutiques such as Aquamarine, Ida and Harry, Bleau Signature and Lapis Retail. The hotel is about 3 miles from South Beach and a 10-minute drive from the airport.

Living on past laurels

The location and amenities were good...the pool, spa and beach were to be expected. However, our room, the elevator and hallways (at least on our floor) were in need of paint and some repair. (Also a bummer: no coffee maker in the rooms.) We didn't think the cleanliness was on par with a highly rated hotel. Additionally, the hotel staff's attitude and service level were below average.

One Complaint

Everything was great except for the hotel fees. I was told when booking that my fees were going to be $80 in total, yet they charged me $230 in total. I was very dissappointed.

Hotel Room status

Room wasn't ready when we got there. Ok not a big deal. They took my number and said they would text me, and they didn't. I had to call. Not to mention, I had to wait in line twice. Then they gave me channel side view instead of Ocean. The room was really nice and so were amenities but not what I paid for.

Only place in South Beach that gives you a Vegas type experience...but instead of being in the dessert is on the beach!!

My girlfriends birthday.

The place felt like being at a resort in DR. It was about a 10 minute drive from Ocean Drive, making it accessible but away from the hustling and bustling of that area. Great Experience.

Best place to stay on South Beach

I had a great experience at the Fontainebleau. Room was clean, comfortable, and came with a great view. Great restaurant selections within the hotel as well as the hotels surrounding it.

Pretty Good!

I couldn't have asked for a better location. My husband and I budgeted to where we could stay at a nice hotel, yet have access to public transportation -- which turned out perfect for us! The walk to the bus stops were very doable and it had a nice location to get on and off the miami airport flyer. Great access to the beach. While the pool was always full during the day, we got a chance to have a nice quiet swim in the morning before we checked out. Only complaint was the constant sound of some kind of water running and some outside noise during the night. However, I couldn't have asked for a better stay. If you're looking for a party, this is your hotel. If you're looking for a nice quiet atmosphere, this might not be the place for you.

Great - as always

I always enjoy my stay at Fontainebleu. It is a true escape from the reality of a busy life. Relaxing by the pool or ocean, and enjoying fabulous cocktails is the way to unwind. Thank yoU!
