Hubby's big birthday so we chose this lovely intimate historic boutique hotel for our get-away celebration. Four poster bed, lovely décor, live music, roof garden and wonderful staff were just some of the highlights.Their gourmet chef made meal time extraordinary and every dish delicious. Valet service so we didn't worry about parking or using our car.Used Lyft drivers for getting around area. Short walk to beach with complimentary beach chairs. Staff spoiled us with extra attention because of special occasion. Kudos to Estephanie and David! We will definitely recommend this hospitality gem!!
After a beautiful day at the spa at The Faena hotel we decided to stay overnight but they were booked so we booked into Casa Faena (across the street). Everything about this place was beautiful, welcoming and comfortable. Hanging out at the bar they were definitely a little busy and probably should I had a few more servers on but the general manager Armando Payton stepped in and started working with the servers and that was great to see. Being that I have been in this industry for over 30 years I notice everything and it was awesome to see such team work I also must definitely make mention of Stef the girl that greeted us and checked us in, She was so welcoming and sweet! Then there was the girl that checked us out another gem!!!! Lianet was so sweet and refreshing to speak with. When I tell you First class service, so professional and so welcoming they wanted us to feel like their home was our home and boy did we. It was truly a treat and we will be back often as we are locals and do many staycations! It was a Pleasant surprise ! Very impressed with this hotel and the team!
We were first given the wrong room but this was quickly rectified. We paid for an Oceanfront Californian King but the room is a huge disappointment. The terrace is literally less than a foot wide and the room (39) absolutely stinks of damp. Generally it is shabby, with dirty curtains and the bathroom door doesn’t even shut.
Though as a Miami Beach resident I live only blocks from this fairly new (resort/apartment/entertainment/arts) complex , I had yet to visit. My friend and I (together with my companion dog) decided to check out Faena, which occupies several buildings on numerous adjacent blocks, in the heart of Miami Beach. At first we went to the main hotel which is absolutely spectacular— so artfully designed, it did not disappoint expectations. But this outing was to check out their happy hour, which as it turned out is located at the Casa Faena on 35th Street at the Café Faena. A little confusing at first, but not a bother. We walked the couple short blocks and entered this lovingly restored hotel with lobby bar/restaurant and were warmly welcomed. As it was August in Miami, the place was very quiet, so we had ample choice of seating options from French bistro style cane chairs and tables, or bar area in the front — to the overstuffed sofas (more akin to a spacious living room) in back near some colorful stained glass windows. We opted for the latter, plush comfy lounge area surrounded with floor to ceiling shelves filled with books devoted to art, travel and the like. I instantly felt as though transported to the luxury of an old world European hotel. Not really like any other place I’ve been to on Miami Beach. Stephanie, our server sharing friendly conversation, very hospitable. We ordered a couple of mixologist cocktails from the happy hour menu, both were refreshing, mine with fresh grapefruit and thyme, and my friend’s with berries and fresh mint. We asked to substitute vodka for the gin, that was listed as the base — no problem. We ordered calamari fritti and flatbread margherita. Both appetizers were outstanding, very fresh and cleanly prepared. We checked out both the relationship lunch and dinner menus, as well as summer “Miami Spice” offerings, and agreed we will surely be back for happy hour, as well as fine dining. We were told once the season kicks back in they become quite busy, and I’m not at all surprised. This is a gem of an appealing destination.
I love this place!!! Estefania and Charles are the greatest!!! It was Charles birthday but he made it like every day was our birthday! This place is beautiful, clean, and second from the sand. It doesn’t get any better!!! Love it!!!! LEOS FOR LIFE! Follow me on Instagram @the_hug_dealer_
This hotel is very charming and the staff is great! We loved the rooftop deck with an unobstructed view of the ocean and the indoor library that is flooded with natural light. Our room was also lovely and the bed was extremely comfortable. Jerry and Alejandro were so nice and took great care of us. I would totally stay here again!
Wonderful small hotel with easy access to the beach. Professional service from Estephania from check-in to check-out including a welcoming chilled sparkling wine. Breakfast in the lobby was tasty and a convenient way to start a morning spent on the beach. I'll come back here in a second!
I came in late from a long trip to Casa Faena. I had a rough trip. I found myself sitting at the front desk on a long conference call. The receptionist, Estefania was absolutely outstanding. She saw I was tired and struggling to listen to the call. She brought me a glass of champagne while I sat there finishing the call, helped me check in and was an outstanding professional while I gathered myself from a long stressful day. It’s the little things that count! Love the hotel.
We stayed at Casa Faena this past weekend and my husband & I absolutely LOVED IT!!! We were greeted by Alejandro from front office and he was so amazing to us. His hospitality & customer service was impeccable. He even showed us around & gave us a little history of the place which my husband loved because he loves history. A big thank you to George, Estefania & Lianet as well who helped us with any questions we had. I definitely recommend any one to stay here at Casa Faena!
My friends and I had a wonderful staycation at this beautifully decorated classic hotel! We were greeted by Alejandro at the front desk who gave us a warm welcome and a wonderful introduction to the Faena brand. We were so pleased with the decor, cleanliness, and overall miami vibe of the hotel, including the beautiful live Latin guitar playing during brunch. Will definitely recommend this hotel to all visitors!
