Overview

Rebranded luxury high-rise with three infinity pools and a buzzy penthouse nightclub

The Lowdown

Part of the W Hotels portfolio, this 148-room Brickell Avenue high-rise was a Viceroy prior to its rebranding in 2016. Bright, spacious guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies with either city or Miami River views, and the W’s signature swanky design with mirrored walls, marble bathrooms, and bold accent furniture in bright emerald and aquamarine hues. Built in 2008 as part of the $1 billion iconbrickell residential development, the hotel fronts the property’s posh, two-acre outdoor “living room,” now a W-branded WET Deck. Three linear infinity pools—including an 80-person hot tub, one of the world’s largest—overlook Biscayne Bay, surrounded by tree-shaded lounge chairs and whimsical design flourishes like a larger-than-life chessboard. Check the pool status before booking: it’s expected to close for about 14 months for major repairs, though you can still frolic in the private pool at the chic black-and-white Whisper Cocktail Lounge on the hotel’s 50th floor.

In the Area

Downtown Miami’s newest shopping area, Brickell City Centre, opened a few blocks west of the hotel. Work up an appetite browsing high-end retailers including Armani, Ted Baker, and Saks Fifth Avenue, then grab lunch at Pubbelly Sushi for inspired fusion cuisine (think spicy tuna rolls with truffle oil and French onion miso soup). Need an escape? Tour nearby Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, a rambling century-old villa estate surrounded by subtropical forest and 10 acres of formal gardens—South Florida’s answer to Versailles.

Back Again for Another Staycation!

We love the W hotel brand. This is our 3rd stay in the last 3 years. All the staff were Super friendly and helpful from the Valet, Front desk, Bell staff, Pool Staff, and Security.
They all really make you feel like family here. All the rooms have a balcony and a kitchenette. It’s nice to be able to refrigerate your leftovers then reheat to eat them.
The pool is lovely. It is one of the largest pools in Miami. It’s as long as a football field with a lovely view. It is in the perfect place. If you don’t want to be in the Sun all-day, you can always find shade there. The hotel is within walking distance to
Everything. We will be back again.

Great base for a boys weekend away

Came to the W for a long weekend boys trip. Great location, easily walkable to the boardwalk and great pool and amenities. Staff were helpful and concierge was great for organising tickets to events etc. Room was large, clean and well-appointed with loads of space for all.

Loved the W Miami!

W Miami truly captures the vibe of the Brickell area. I really enjoyed the W Hotel brand feel. Everything felt so relaxed and stress free. Monica and Jorge at the Welcome Desk checked us in and they were nice. Jorge was always around and constantly provided us great service. He’s a true leader for the hotel.

The pool area is outstanding! The infinity element is a great touch given the location of the pool. The Addikt restaurant has great views from the 15th floor, although I didn’t particular care for the food. The yellow rice that came with the steak was awful. Finally, the valet system for retrieving your car is genius. No need to stand around waiting for your car, simply text the ticket number to the number they give you and they’ll let you know when the car is ready. Even though the W Miami isn’t particularly known as a family hotel, overall the family and I enjoyed our weekend stay. I would recommend the hotel to everyone!
