What can I say?... I stumbled across this absolute gem of a hotel through AmEx Travel service. I had been searching for a couple of days for somewhere to stay in Miami... I had decided to propose to my girlfriend on this short trip and was anxious to make sure everything was as perfect / romantic as could be. Nervous as hell I entered the lottery that can be hotel booking, reading review after review of different places in South Beach. They all seemed the same... Except the Vintro.
A boutique hotel (think it has 50 or so rooms) and luxurious in it's amenities. Brand new, only opened a couple of weeks before. Not in the hustle and bustle of Collins Ave or Ocean Drive. Great looking restaurant inside the hotel. Only 2 blocks away from the beach, with it's own sun bed/umbrella section and a ZipCar / Avis all of 2 blocks away... Perfect!
We arrived early afternoon at the hotel and were greeted warmly by everyone. The hotel looked great, everything was clean and shiny and all the staff seemed excited and happy to be part of this new brand. I emailed the hotel before we got there and asked if they could try make everything a little more romantic than usual. We were greeted with glasses of champagne at check in and the hotel's manager Adnan came over and introduced himself, giving a knowing look my way ;) We were escorted to the room by a super friendly guy called Jeremy, and they had a fresh chocolate mousse (with olive oil - trust me, its AMAZING) and bottle of champagne on ice waiting for us!! Adnan had also upgraded our room!
The room was gorgeous, brand new Samsung Smart TV's, rain showers, led lights underneath the bed to name a few of the things, it was a perfect blend of modern and cozy without being at all pretentious. Everything looked better than the pictures on the hotel website! We also ate in the hotel restaurant a number of times and always had a fantastic meal.
Anything I threw at these guys they helped accommodate. I had a bunch of time sensitive packages arriving and everything was delivered and signed for without a hitch. Front desk staff were all awesome, and everyone always said hello and made us feel like valued guests including valet staff, cleaning staff, etc. Everyone was just so damn friendly! This attention to detail and personal touch made all the difference, everybody I had an interaction with remembered my name and it ain't an easy one to remember...
I feel like I have discovered South Beach's biggest secret. I will never ever stay anywhere else in South Beach. Vintro now has a very happy, loyal and grateful customer for life! I have already booked a return trip in December.
Oh yeh. Best part is... She said yes :)
