Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Pool area a bit worn and dirty
  • 15-minute, $20 to $25 cab from the beach

Bottom Line

Its a condo-hotel, meaning that all 200 units -- one-bedroom luxury condos with full kitchens -- look a little different from the others, but have the same basic features. For the price, the features are solid -- a large pool, restaurant, gym, Jacuzzi, and sauna -- but its downtown location is a 15-minute drive from the beach and most attractions.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the Financial District of downtown Miami, just a block from the waterfront (not the beach)

The Fortune House is located beside the Four Seasons in a horseshoe of hotels overlooking the water in the southern section of downtown Miami. Although there's no beach access, the view is nice, and two parks -- plus a handful of restaurants -- are within walking distance.

Miami's financial center occupies downtown's southern tip; its skyscrapers make the skyline especially impressive in the evenings, when the towers are lit like the massive prisms. Among its highlights: American Airlines Arena (home to the Miami Heat basketball team), the Adrienne Arsht Center of the Performing Arts (a triple treat of opera, philharmonics and ballet), and the scarce warehouse-turned-nightclub.

  • 15-minute drive or $25 taxi to Miami International Airport
  • 35-minute drive or $90 taxi to Fort Lauderdale International Airport
  • South Beach is 15-minute, $20 to $25 cab ride away.
  • 10-minute drive to the Port of Miami
  • Seven-minute drive to Parrot Jungle Island and the Miami Children's Museum
  • 15-minute drive to the Miami Seaquarium
  • Five-minute drive to the Adrienne Arsht Center of the Performing Arts
  • 20-minute drive to the Museum of Contemporary Art
