ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: My colleague and I arrived earlier than normal check-in time, so I didn’t expect the room to be ready for us. However, the staff was polite and offered to keep my luggage while we headed out to a lunch meeting. When we returned later that afternoon, the room was ready and I checked in with no issues. One thing that stood out was the AC Hotel and The Element hotel shared a lobby on the sixth floor, making the floor entrance an elite experience with a hallway leading to separated elevators.

GUEST QUARTERS: The room was everything I imagined from the photographs online — modern and clean with lots of light and open space. With recent updated innovations such as tap key entries, I felt safe and secure in my 14th-floor room. Each room included a full-sized desk, making it comfortable to work from my room. My favorite part of the room was the bathroom with full mirror lighting and an open glass shower with a rainfall head complemented with high-end shampoo and conditioner. The room also had a mini fridge to store leftovers plus plenty of space to hang clothing and store shoes and luggage.

SERVICES/AMENITIES: This inner-city hotel features a well-equipped gym located on the top floor; a refreshing rooftop pool overlooking the city with several shaded cabanas; fine dining done right with a glorious bar; and complimentary breakfast with a staffed crêpe bar, open until 10 a.m. But that’s not all! The hotel also offers a gorgeous rooftop known as Rosa Sky, open to the public, by night club owner Alan Roth and creative director Jasmine Viana. At Rosa Sky, I exited the elevator doors to a breathtaking view and into the life of a party with great cocktails and live DJs. This proved a fun way to end my workday without venturing far.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

  • AC Hotel by Marriott Miami Brickell sits in a centralized location in downtown Brickell near the business district, making it convenient for business travelers to attend meetings or hop on the freeway to commute to Doral or Fort Lauderdale.
  • Only two blocks from great shopping at Brickell city center, surrounded by fine dining and nightlife

Fairfield by Marriott Phnom Penh Review

Phnom Penh as we imagined it stretches beneath us: a picturesque, low-rise mix of Southeast Asian and French Colonial styles. When the inhabitants of those buildings look back at us here in the Fairfield by Marriott hotel in Chip Mong Tower, they see the future.
