At the Hotel Beaux Arts, in Miami’s financial district, guests get the best of both worlds: an amenity-laden stay with the vibe of a hushed, exclusive boutique hotel. The 44-room hotel achieves this hard-to-reach goal by being in the same 41-story building as the JW Marriott Marquis. Perched near the top, the hotel has a personal concierge and a sleek lobby, a mix of chrome and marble tables and low-slung couches backed by mod beaded curtains and oversize fashion photo murals.
Bed and Bath
Polished Brazilian wood floors lend a sexy sheen to the sleek loft-style rooms. Pay attention when you’re shown around, as the amenities are high-tech (think room service via iPad and Bang & Olufsun LCD TVs that swing out from the wall on a motorized arm). Marble bathrooms have Jacuzzi tubs, colored LED faucets and Molton Brown products.
You’re spoiled for options thanks to the facilities of both the Beaux Arts and the Marriott; they run the gamut from a stainless steel pool on the 19th floor to a salon, a spa, a virtual bowling alley, a 3-D theater, a wine boutique, a cigar shop and a gym. There’s also a Miami outpost of star chef Daniel Boulud’s db Bistro Moderne, a palace of indulgent French fare with an international edge. Be sure to try the signature foie gras, black truffle and short rib–stuffed burger.
How to Get There
I am a Titanium Elite Member that spends over 75 days a year in Hotels - I also used to Live in Miami so I know the city very well (and the hotels). The Hotel Beaux Arts literally blew me away - Everything from the service to the location was amazing. The rooms are probably the best I have ever stayed in and that is saying a lot.
For the price, I would say there is no better option.
This hotel has everything one could ask for!! Its beautiful, clean, has amazing beds, gorgeous views and state of the art electronics. The hotel has all the extra perks one would expect and hope for in a nice boutique hotel. The pool and 19th floor offer so much, the onsite restaurants are great and the service is top notch. The concierge service there is a travelers dream!! We have traveled a ton, and this place ensured we had individual treatment, met all our needs and far exceeded our expectations in booking all the things we wanted. We will return every time we are in Miami. Thank you for everything! A super special shout out to the concierge service.....Andres Meneses was so nice, helpful, welcoming and one of the main reasons we will return next time we are in town, thanks again!
Stayed 2 nights for work. Maybe if you want to be close but not on SoBe this could be a spot to stay. For a business traveler, I would avoid it like the plague. $35 lunch, $35 breakfast, no printers to use, computers were down, no gift shop, etc...and I was staying on the top 2 floors - Beaux Arts. I put in for late check out (1pm) and they shut off my key at noon-where I stood outside my door and watched room service enter despite my Private light on.
I assure you I’ll never return
The concept of the hotel within he hotel appeals to me quite a lot. I loved the separate reception area and the personal service even before check in. thanks Mark for the attention before during and after the stay. I also want to call out Rafael in the L'Atelier bar for excellent service. The L'atelier bar and restaurant are a very upgraded version of a "club room" found lounge levels when you are of a certain status with hotels - a very upgraded version.
The location is convenient and the gym was very nice as well.
The room was pretty to look at but there were some functional issues to it. The choice of bathroom fixtures left much to be desired - too much form over function. It may seem like quibbling and it certainly isn't in any way a deal breaker - but they detracted from the overall experience. The layout of the room had this similarly odd feeling - for example placement of the closet in a narrow hall which makes two people arriving and trying to unpack awkward and cramped - in an otherwise spacious room.
This is my second stay at the hotel. I like the design and the nature of the rooms, so long as everything works as it should. The weakness of this hotel is the apparent absence of management/supervision. The front-line staff were each warm and welcoming (Dan welcomed us warmly to the property), however many were still learning their jobs but without the usual support. The hotel has great unrealized potential. Someone else mentioned in their review the confusion around the complementary cocktails on Wednesday evening at 6PM. Offerings at the breakfast buffet were fresh and maintained one day; not so much the next. And while they offer Illy coffee in rooms, the creamer option is 3 packets of powdered Coffee Mate (incongruent).
Bottom line is I like the hotel and the location so would return, however my expectations are moderated for the quality service.
