Arrival/Check-In: Pulling into the Conrad Miami, we were immediately greeted by a number of friendly valets. Shortly after arriving, we were in the elevator headed to the 25th-floor lobby. Guests should note, you arrive at ground level, take the elevators to the 25th floor and then use another bank of elevators to access your guestroom. With no one else waiting to check in, my colleague and I were assisted quickly. I asked the front desk attendant for a lunch recommendation, and he offered several options. He was friendly, and we chatted as he checked me in. After a quick trip to drop off our bags, we headed back out the door for lunch and more meetings. Interesting artwork is displayed in the lobby.
Guest Quarters: My corner room opened into a short hallway with a large bathroom straight ahead. The most noticeable feature of the bathroom was the expansive view of downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay. The bathroom, filled with natural light, offered ample space for getting ready.
To the right, down a shorter hallway, was the bedroom. The king-sized bed, flanked by two nightstands, sat across from a desk and a dresser with a TV. I wish my stay had been longer than one night, as the bed was extremely comfortable. After long days of meetings, a good night of sleep helped me refresh. Windows in the bedroom area lined two walls and afforded downtown views.
One thing I noticed throughout my stay, from the lobby to the guestrooms to the hotel, was the wonderful aroma wafting throughout. It was welcoming and fresh, without being overtly masculine or feminine.
Services/Amenities: If given the pleasure to stay a bit longer at Conrad Miami, I would have enjoyed a visit to the on-site spa and fitness center, or perhaps the rooftop pool or tennis courts. Give yourself enough time to truly enjoy the property.
My colleague and I enjoyed a plentiful breakfast spread at Atrio, on the 25th floor. We worked and dined, made all the more pleasant by, once again, the stunning views over the bay. In addition to Atrio and its wine room, guests can enjoy in-room dining or The Bar at Level 25.
The views provide the theme at Conrad Miami, and they continue in the hotel’s 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space, equipped with the latest in technology. The property is also a choice wedding venue in the city.
The Experience: From the views to the accommodations to the on-site amenities, a stay at Conrad Miami is sure to be a standout. When I realized I’d foolishly forgotten my laptop charger at home, the front desk attendant searched high and low, even phoning other hotel departments, to try to find a replacement for me. This above-and-beyond service exemplified the entire experience.
