Overview

Brickell district star with four pools, a buzzy restaurant, and one of the city’s hottest rooftop bars

The Lowdown

When it opened in the spring of 2016, EAST Miami put the Brickell business district on the map, transforming it into one of the city’s trendiest new neighborhoods. The hotel features 352 guest rooms, 89 of which are massive one-, two-, and three-bedroom residences, along with a 20,000-square-foot terrace with four pools and an outpost of Uruguay’s celebrated La Huella restaurant. But the real showstopper is Sugar, a rooftop bar and garden on the 40th floor that offers killer views of downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay. Intimate seating areas are tucked into nooks surrounded by lush greenery, hanging lanterns, and wooden walkways, making it feel like a tropical oasis. On the menu: Asian-inspired bites like steamed prawn and scallop dumplings, Korean chicken wings, and coconut palm leaf crepes with Florida mangoes, best paired with one of their creative cocktails—the lychee blossom with vodka and sake is a must-try.

In the Area

Serious shoppers could spend days in the 500,000-square-foot open-air Brickell City Centre mall, adjacent to the hotel, which has a Saks Fifth Avenue outpost as well as storefronts from designer brands like Armani, Ted Baker, Hugo Boss, and more. Interested in the arts? Catch a performance at the nearby Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, then sip post-show cocktails at Blackbird Ordinary, a casual, hip lounge with star bartenders. There’s also Crazy About You, a waterfront Mediterranean restaurant perfect for sundowners, and Coya, an antiques-filled find that marries Peruvian and Latin American flavors.

Great option in Brickell

Stayed here for business and will return to this property again. Stylish rooms, attached to Brickell City Centre so there are options galore within steps. Really great property dining and the rooftop bar Sugar is awesome. Didn’t get to enjoy the pool area but did check it out and looked nice and accommodating for all ages.

Great base when in Miami

EAST is in the perfect place for everything. Although not on the beach, it’s worth staying here. 10 minutes taxi to South Beach / Miami Beach etc. Taxis are great value here, use UBER if you can!

The balconies are a little terrifying if you don’t like heights and completely glass balconies! See my photo

Hotel rooms are to a very good standard and this was a perfect hotel for the 80 staff who attended. Although, good luck working the lifts when it’s busy!

Amazing!

Excellent hotel, modern, everything brand new, very stylish. We had the one bedroom suite and it is the prettiest room I ever had in a hotel. Stunning view from the 36th floor! Continental breakfast is very decent with all homemade pastries and breads.

Only small remark I could make is that some staff members did not have the same high quality standards when dealing with guests but fortunately that was a minority.

We are definitely coming back!

Worst. Pillows. Ever.

Seriously, I've never, ever used any pillows like the ones they have. Amazingly bad, make it really hard to sleep. Other than that, good, fancy hotel. Well located hotel near a mall and great restaurants. Good staff. But the pillows are really THAT bad!

Very comfortable and fancy hotel

Stayed at this hotel couple nights while visiting Miami, when I entered the lobby the first time I said to myself: "very beautiful lobby". The attention received while gathering my reservation was 10/10. Also had a problem with my name, the person of my company who made my reservation put wrong my name, and the guy in the front desk helped me a lot to solve that situation, it would not be possible without his help.

The room:
The room was pretty clean, well organized, modern and perfectly climate for my stay, outside it was very warm, but inside it felt great, soft and fresh.

The hotel in general
This hotel have a lot of things to point (in a positive way), in the rooftop it has a bar, with an amazing view of the downtown skyline, it has also a mall inside it, a good restaurant (which just visited but did not ordered something)

The views you'll find in this hotel are impressive, just read the other reviews.
