2.19 mi from Miami Seaquarium
Best Rooms: To enjoy impressive views of the ocean and the surrounding area, be sure to book an Ocean View room.
Best Rooms: Bay View rooms offer the best views of Biscayne Bay. There are many types of Bay View rooms, but all of them are available on all floors (20 - 29).
Best Rooms: Rooms facing away from Brickell Ave. on floors 20 and up offer a panoramic view of the ocean.
Best Rooms: Among non-suites, Deluxe Bay View rooms and Mandarin Executive rooms offer gorgeous views of the bay (i.e. rooms ending in *10 through *20, such as 710, 812, 919). Keep in mind, however, that some rooms have smaller balconies than others. So if you want to enjoy the view from a spacious balcony, be sure to specify that you'd like a room with a larger balcony.
Best Rooms: Most of the rooms offer a city view of Brickell. However, the best view is a partial bay view, which also includes a pool view from the rooms in the back of the hotel. For unobstructed views of the city, request a room on or above the 9th floor, on the front side of the hotel facing Brickell Ave.
