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.

Great location, great team, great service...
BilgeSonmezer

We stayed for a week back in July and enjoyed every second of it.
The room was ıs very good size and spacious, amenities good, the shower is spacey and dual sinks are handy for couples...
The most amazing was that the bed is very very comfortable.
Daily provided Caffee Capsules were great hospitality.

Oyster and champagne happy hour was good delicatessen.

The team was very great. Especially the outdoor, bar, pool Wet team and the beach team.

We enjoyed every second of it and already decided to return back again in November.

Service was amazing!

We stayed for four nights in October. It rained everyday but due to the excellent service, we had the best vacation ever! We enjoyed sincere interactions with everyone from housekeeping, security, front desk, valets, and concierge. We especially thank Cesar the valet, and Brad and Lenny (We loved Lenny!) for making our stay a memorable one. The hotel is clean and spacious, but the service is amazing! We will be back next year.

Pretty good... not amazing.

First of all, the reviews mentioning the Viceroy decor are spot-on... it’s nice, but it doesn’t match the lobby or even the hallways AT ALL.
That being said, the room was spacious & well appointed, amenities good, and bed comfy. I also appreciated the fridge that had room for food/drinks aside from the existing mini bar stuff.
I wasn’t super psyched about my room’s location, RIGHT on Brickell Avenue, where every idiot in the zip code with a moderately priced sports car has to honk their horn or rev their engine at all hours of the night. Then I remembered there are literally people who bought million dollar condos in this building and I feel a little better.
Drinks at the hotel bar were good and bartending staff was very friendly and accommodating, but I wouldn’t pay $17 for a cocktail... this isn’t Manhattan (or even South Beach). $8 happy hour is where it’s at.
