In March 2014, the Metropolitan by COMO opened in Miami Beach as the first U.S. property from the renowned group. Located just a few blocks from South Beach’s trendy shopping, dining and nightlife spots, the 74-room boutique hotel occupies a building from 1939, and the original name, the Traymore, remains etched into the colorful stone floor. The lobby maintains elements of a bygone era, with stately columns and artistic handrails that lead to the elegant restaurant and bar.
Bed and Bath
The 74 guestrooms mirror the hotel’s Art Deco style, painted pastel green and with contemporary decor elements from Italian designer Paola Navone. City Rooms are 330 square feet and feature amenities such as espresso makers, health-conscious snacks and 42-inch flat-screen TVs, while higher-category rooms have balconies and views of the Intracoastal Waterway or Atlantic Ocean. The bathrooms have tiled rainfall showers, robes, slippers and signature COMO Shambhala bath products.
The rooftop of the Metropolitan by COMO offers a hydrotherapy pool with relaxation beds that overlook the beach. Guests also have access to the 24-hour fitness area and steam room, which offers playful spa shower settings. COMO Shambhala Urban Escape is the hotel’s luxury spa; it uses its own nature-infused product line and features treatment rooms with ocean views and balconies and an open-air terrace. On the ground level guests can also lounge in the private pool area, which offers beach access and poolside dining. The Traymore restaurant serves outstanding cuisine from chef Jonathan Lane, such as pan-seared halibut with artichokes and fava beans, and roasted young chicken with leeks and spring peas. Guests can also order off the COMO Shambhala menu for healthy, locally produced items and nutrient-rich raw dishes and juices.
In the Area
A bike rental kiosk is just steps from the patio, and it offers a convenient, enjoyable way to explore the area; there’s a tourism office next to the hotel that can provide ideas about where to ride. For local culture, head a few blocks south to the Miami Ballet and the Bass Museum of Art, which features special events including live jazz in the evenings. Also nearby is the Lincoln Road Mall, a vast outdoor walkway lined with restaurants, bars and plenty of shopping and people-watching opportunities. For adventure seekers, Sky Banditz offers kiteboarding lessons that launch right behind the hotel, as well as paddleboard rentals for those interested in a more relaxing water activity.
How to Get There
My stay at the COMO was great. The location is so perfect, right in the middle of everything. The private beach is beautiful and clean as well as our rooms. Our rooms were cleaned twice a day (if wanted) which I thought was so great, if I left a clean sign on my door I would leave and come back with my room in tip top shape!! Never saw something like that before. Staff was amazing as well, really loved everything!
The only reason I gave it one star less was because I went from friday-monday, the charged me the initial hotel charge which was fine but sunday night I went to use my card and was decline... super confused I looked on my card and realized the COMO took ANOTHER charge of that same initial charge. Thank god I was with my boyfriend who paid for my drinks as well as how I got home but I don't know what I would've done if I was alone. The text morning I asked them about it and they said it was an accident maybe because I stayed that extra monday? but they couldn't refund me right away I had to call bank.
BESIDES THAT IT WAS SO PERFECT WOULD 100% STAY AGAIN!!!
Had an ocean view (partial) room (#512), which was a good size. The bed was pretty firm, as were the pillows (fine by me, but not so much my traveling companion). The pool area was nice and quiet, and the food at the hotel overall was pretty good. Definitely a more "chill" vibe than say the Fontainebleau, or SLS, which can feel like you're in the middle of a club.
Supposed to be a 5 stars. Definitely NOT. It has a nice atrium. Buy the ceiling has water leak in the left corner and the air conditioning vents look rusty. The breakfast area is nice. The swimming pool is the best frites if the hotel. We stayed in a room facing the city. Floors are old vinyl or stone. With annoying pattern. The bathroom is small but comfortable. The bed is nice but squeaky and would be for from a new mattress.
The staff was nice they get out of their way to help. The exception was the first night the check in guy tried to move us to ocean front room for additional 200$. The room was smaller than the city view one and there us ocean view due to humidity.
The location is great and away from the noise of south beach.
I would recommend that bug probably for a much cheaper price. And they should advertise it as a 3 star hotel. Next to it is the 4 stars such as W and 1.
Everything about our experience was gracious, low-key elegance and friendly. The room was a beautiful ocean view suite with very Miami glam bathroom and bedroom. The pool is elegant and service was top-notch. The whirlpool spa on room is really nice and very relaxing. The fitness room was a bit small and didn't inspire us to workout. The spa looked amazing although we didn't have time to book any treatments on this trip. Special call out to Patricia, the pool bartender who was so charismatic, lovely and fun. Sergio the doorman and Roy at the desk were all super friendly too.
This hotel can not be rated at 5 stars, it is 3 stars. He has a good location and this is his only virtue. The interior of the room is similar to rooms on a student campus with furniture from IKEA. I was surprised by the payment system. My room was fully paid for, and the balance was booked on the basis of the use of restaurants and spas, it was even more than necessary. However, the day before departure, an employee at the reception asked me for more money. It was very intrusive and unpleasant. That same evening, towels disappeared from my room. My opinion, this hotel is not worth the money.
