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
This is a great place to stay. A short walk from ocean drive. The hotel looks on to the beach. Nice pool and private beach area. The hotel is brilliant but the staff are even better. Jeremy and John were really helpful.
I visit south beach frequently. The staff is outstanding. Very clean room, detail oriented. What I like: 1) music by the pool was soothing as opposed to head banging.
2) service at beach and pool was unobtrusive, just what I wanted.
3) food was FANTASTIC at the beach, pool and restaurant.
What I didn’t like: location. I like to wonder to Lincoln Rd to shop, dine on Ocean Dr. and get THE BEST COFFEE IN THE WORLD at Rosetta Italian Bakery . If I stay further down Collins, all this is so much closer. But that’s just me.
The spa was average .
My girlfriend and I went back to COMO Miami with big expectations after our last trip. From booking the room to checkout the experience was simply fantastic.
For us, the COMO is the perfect hotel for a luxurious getaway. The staff is amazing, they cater to your every need without being overbearing, the pool is serene, and the beach may be the nicest I have ever been on. Again, for us it does not get any better.
Pietro, the general manager helped me with my reservation and came out to greet us upon check in.
We decided to get an ocean view room this time, the only drawback was it didnt have a balcony that I like. But the view of the ocean was more than a good trade. It was a stunning view. The rooms are always super clean and well maintained.
I truly can't say enough good things about this hotel and its staff. We have found our home away from home. Thank you to Pietro and all the staff at COMO!
The Como in Miami Beach is a very nice hotel, but it is not a 5 star hotel. Although the staff are very polite and friendly, they were not as knowledge about the area as I would have expected. We had to figure out a lot of things by ourselves. One simple thing that I think they could do is keep a schedule of the free tourist trolley that stops right in front of the hotel - when I asked someone, they said they didn't know and wasn't even sure how often it came. The room was very nice but the AC didn't work after the first night. They did try to fix it. My brother, who also stayed there, had the same issue but they were prompt to bring someone in; however, they were unable to fix it - it still felt more like a fan than AC. Because of the cool floors, it wasn't too bad. We tried to enjoy the whirlpool on the top floor - the views were amazing. The jets didn't work, we asked about it, and they said someone would come, but they never did. We were still able to enjoy it simply because of the view. Everyone was really nice but there just wasn't any follow through.
And lastly, I found their restaurant to be over-priced for the quality of food being served, e.g., breakfast was standard eggs & bacon, nothing special but it cost over $90 cdn, I paid almost the same price for breakfast at the Market at The Edition (near by), I didn't feel ripped off there because the service and food was outstanding.
Our room was at the budget end of the spectrum, but it was perfect for our needs. We were never in it during the day. In room USB chargers, Bluetooth music player and free WiFi. The TV was there, but never used. The hotel is so nice and staff are so polite.
