Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Spacious, modern rooms with big, luxurious bathrooms
  • Enormous, top-notch fitness center
  • Expansive water views from select rooms
  • Multiple large pool areas
  • Great Sunday brunch
  • Sophisticated steakhouse on-site
  • Pet-friendly attitude
  • Lovely lobby with Botero sculptures
  • Superb service
  • Ideal location for business travelers

Cons

  • Extra charge for Wi-Fi
  • Expensive valet parking
  • Lacks an intimate resort ambiance

Bottom Line

The Four Seasons is synonymous with top-notch service, and the 221-room Four Seasons Miami is no exception. This hotel is cooly elegant and immaculately maintained, with an elite fitness center, sophisticated steakhouse, and two large and lovely pool areas. Modern rooms are spacious with big, luxurious bathrooms; some have expansive water views. It's an ideal choice for a conference or business traveler crash pad, but the Financial District location makes it a bit less ideal for a romantic retreat or kid-friendly vacation. Note that fees like Wi-Fi and valet parking can add up quickly.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Posh and sophisticated

Located inside a steel and glass tower in Downtown Miami's business district, the Four Seasons is a sleek and well-oiled machine designed to meet the demands of sophisticated business travelers. The vaulted lobby is a calm expanse of bamboo, marble, and posh neutral fabrics, punctuated by sculptures by the renowned artist Fernando Botero. A recently revamped steakhouse features a lively, often crowded bar and outdoor terrace seating.

 Location

In Brickell, Miami's Financial District

The Four Seasons is in Brickell, Miami's business and financial core (and up-and-coming urban residential area) about eight miles from Miami International Airport. Activity in the area declines considerably after happy hour, although there are several good restaurants within walking distance, including the Argentinian restaurant Novecento across the street. Merry Brickell Village, a shopping and entertainment district, is within a 10-minute walk, and there's a free MetroMover station that makes frequent downtown stops located a few steps from the hotel. You'll need to take a taxi if you want to see the ocean or party in South Beach, as both destinations are about six miles away on the other side of the bay.

 Rooms

Spacious and tasteful

Rooms are large, tastefully updated but unspectacular, with neutral patterned carpets, attractive wood credenzas, and an inviting padded window seat that takes advantage of water views available in some upper-level rooms. Ample amenities include large flat-screen TVs, minibars, and twice-daily turndown service. Bathrooms are luxurious and spacious, with terry robes, designer toiletries, separate marble soaking tubs, and enclosed water closets.

 Features

Several pools, a steakhouse, and fitness center

The Four Seasons Miami has a two-acre main pool, a children's pool, and a large shallow pool for toe-dipping and lounging. The hotel also houses a branch of an exclusive health club that's a favorite of local fitness buffs thanks to its large selection of the latest workout equipment, weekly classes, and available spa treatments. There is a sophisticated steakhouse along with a cafe overlooking the pool serving cocktails and Latin-inspired fare. The hotel is also known for its ample and delicious (though pricey) Sunday brunch. Expect extra fees for pets and in-room Wi-FI.

 Bottom Line

The Four Seasons is synonymous with top-notch service, and the 221-room Four Seasons Miami is no exception. This hotel is cooly elegant and immaculately maintained, with an elite fitness center, sophisticated steakhouse, and two large and lovely pool areas. Modern rooms are spacious with big, luxurious bathrooms; some have expansive water views.
