YVE Hotel Miami
What We Love
- Killer views of yachts and cruise ships in Biscayne Bay — and matching stateroom-inspired design
- “Monscierge” screens in the lobby let you check weather, find restaurants, even print boarding passes
- Walking distance to theaters, concerts and sports arenas
- A $2 Metromover ride from the airport
- Free WiFi throughout — and loaner iPads you can sign out from the front desk
What To Know
- The hotel requires a $50 daily deposit, which will be refunded or credited toward incidental charges at checkout
- Views of water everywhere — but no pool to swim in; a 15-minute cab ride from the beach
- The two elevators can cause a traffic jam at peak checkout times
- The city center locale will disappoint those imagining the resort strip of Miami Beach
- A $13.56 per night amenity fee will be collected at the hotel (includes WiFi, one signature YVE alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage per person served daily in the lobby from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and more)

It’s a mod, mod, mod, mod world. A just-completed gut renovation transformed an outdated hotel high-rise into a sleek contemporary tower with info-packed computer screens on the wall, oceans of blue carpeting and crisp white walls inside, and an exterior that’s spotlit in different hues each night — such as red when the Miami Heat is playing at American Airlines Arena, across the street.
Bed and Bath
The Biscayne Bay and its passing boats inspired the room decors. The interiors call to mind the staterooms of the cruise ships visible from some rooms, with a cushy white bed floating on a thick, wave-patterned carpet opposite a flat-screen TV. The all-white bathrooms are small but ship-shape, and there are thoughtful touches throughout, from Aveda products in the shower to the blue-painted closet interior, which subtly echoes the nautical theme.
It’s right off the lobby, but Jeffrey Chodorow’s Biscayne Tavern is more than just a hotel restaurant. Its inviting wooden bar, craft beer menu, unpretentious vibe and urban comfort food (think spicy shrimp and grits) make it a crowd-pleaser among locals as well as guests. It’s especially crowded before and after Heat games, at the arena across the street — and pretty packed during games, too, thanks to the big-screen TVs on the back wall.
In the Area
Downtown is a business hub (it has the country’s largest concentration of international banks), but if you’re here for play, not work, you can walk to the Adrienne Arsht Center for traveling Broadway shows, dance performances, opera and concerts; American Airlines Arena for sporting events; and Bayfront Park for carousel rides, open-air concerts and yoga by the bay. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head around the block for Miami’s best Peruvian fare at Ceviche 105 or Pollos y Jarras. The hipster-packed restaurants and open-air graffiti galleries of Wynwood and the luxury shops of the Design District are a few minutes away in a cab, and the sandy shores of Miami Beach are just over the causeway — about a 10-minute drive.
How to Get There
my friends came down to miami for the weekend and it was their birthday. i got in touch with Sylvia, the concierge for the hotel around 10am, and asked for assistance setting up a surprise for them.
Sylvia discussed various options of what they offer and sent me an invoice right away.
She did a complimentary room upgrade for me, and laid out rose petals and roses in the room.
she sent me pictures of the setup, the card and my gift prior to their arrival.
cant thank her enough for the ease of the transaction.
Kudos for having such great staff, im sure my friends will love their gift and their stay!
nice hotel. wouldn’t stay here again. service is horrible. you have to ask for housekeeping. didn’t get house keeping for 2 days and waited 3 hrs for someone to bring toilet paper and towels. rooms and bathrooms are tiny. breakfast was great. it was an okay stay food location but i’d choose somewhere else next time
Walls are thin. Heard occupants next to us. Doors don't close gently; and patrons don't care. Elevators are not equipped to handle the number of occupants. Stay low floor and use stairs. The food was excellent. Location to Bayfront Amphitheater is ideal. Front desk clerks, though pleasant and professional, are compromised mentally. If you need assistance, ask manager. Pablo is a an ideal alternate, too.
Excellent- helpful, & friendly staff, with valet service, luggage storage. Great location to downtown & tours. Quiet & beautiful view of the city. We were on the 16th floor! Need rubber mat in the shower &/or handle bars.
I only went to Miami for one night because of a concert and this was the best place I could find. Close to bayside and close to the James l knight center, where my concert was. I plan to go back for for days and definitely will say here again!
