Mandarin Oriental, Miami is different from other hotels thanks to its prime location and stellar service. The Mandarin is not along the glitzy streets of South Beach or Miami Beach. Instead, the hotel is situated just outside of Miami's downtown business center on Brickell Key along Biscayne Bay. Hotel staff is used to catering to international visitors, business travelers as well as celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Lebron James and Will Smith. After all, there's something very special about views of the water and the city together. If you stay in a balcony room facing the east, it likely will boast 180-degree or more views of Biscayne Bay and the buildings that tower along the downtown waterfront. Stay in a balcony room facing west, and you'll get equally stellar views of downtown Miami. Some rooms feature views of both. Either way, watching the sun rise and set is an event at Mandarin Oriental, Miami.
