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.

It is ok

I love the W South Beach. This W is ok. I would not go out of my way to stay here. We had a suite, which was dark and a little depressing. The rooftop pool and bar is cool, with nice views. Several restaurants are within walking distance.

Great rooms, odd Asian decor left over from the Viceroy Hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I had been here over 10 years ago when it was the Viceroy Hotel and found it odd that it had an Asian decor being in modern Miami. The property has been taken over by the W which is known for its hip modern hotels. They changed a couple of things, but the rooms look the same. Just Odd. The service is friendly and the pool on the 50th floor is amazing, though it closes often for events.

You can walk to Brickell City Center for great shops and restaurants.

What an Exquisite and Memorable trip!

W Hotel is my favorite choice when traveling. After first great experience stay in W Hotel in Las Vegas, I decided to stay with this branch in Miami, which once again, its unique service style provided me such a lovely happiness stay.

Flexible check-in/out will make you feel like just coming back home after a long flight. Thanks again for the front desk receptionist, Carolina’s beautiful smiles and warm welcome gifts.

The hotel is so unique that it even has a “mini arts museum” for you to stop by and enjoy a moment of peace in mind. The room is huge and has everything that I could possibly ask for (except the TV is only 40 inches, which is a little bit “strange” for a person like me so used to a 70 inches :p). In addition, the king-size so soft bed, the bathtub, the desk, the couch, the declaration of the entire room, comfortable and elegant.

Rooftop Swimming pool and gym are definitely a huge plus for providing more activities, but if you check the hotel schedules, you might be “lucky” enough to join in rooftop pool-party at night time.

At the end, I had a wonderful time with my lovely GF staying in W Hotel, and will for sure come back to visit!
