“A fantastic getaway that made a workaholic want to stay on vacation”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

The Metropolitan by Como has hit every aspect needed to create an individual ideal getaway for each guest right on the button. From a personalized letter welcoming you to the hotel to being surprised by freshly made pastries waiting for you on your return from the beach, Como has given me a new definition of attention to detail. The staff were delightful. Everyone was welcoming and prepared to help in any way possible. Diego in particular permeated impression of humble sophistication congruent to the Como brand. An ideal location far enough away from the packed part of South beach to enjoy a quiet relaxing day in the sun but close enough to walk over if you are looking for some excitement. Typically I am not a fan of hotel food. The chefs at Traymore again set another precedent in this regard. Tuna tartar being my absolute favourite (I ordered it 3 times). The rooms were spotless. The beds were comfortable. The shower has me thinking there is a bathroom renovation in my house's near future. The only thing I did not love was that the parking was a tad expensive. Coming from the hospitality industry in Canada I am generally a harsh judge and do not usually find myself going out of my way to write reviews, but the staff at Como must have seen me coming because I am enamored with the Como brand and am racking my brain to remember all the little touches I will be applying to my own business.

Breakfast and Lunch at the Traymore Restaurant and Bar in the new Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach hotel

After staying at Parrot Cay by COMO in Turks and Caicos, I can admit to being a devout follower of COMO Hotels and Resorts. After hearing the buzz about the new Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach hotel, and reading about how it has finally opened its doors, I couldn’t wait to try the new Traymore Restaurant and Bar at the hotel and was truly blown away by the exceptional service and the quality of cuisine that Miami Beach has been missing for the longest time. The restaurant offers two menus throughout the day – the main menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the ‘COMO Shambhala‘ menu, which is a lighter menu that uses fresh and organic ingredients used in various combinations with each healthy dish, to keep the plates flavorful and vibrant, unlike most health-focused menus available. I had various dishes from the COMO Shambhala menu at the Metropolitan’s sister property, Parrot Cay, and can say that the consistency in quality and freshness at The Traymore is quite remarkable. At lunchtime, I always look for something light but tasty, and the dishes I had over delivered on every level. Although each dish I tried was very light and healthy, the size of the plates were very substantial and fulfilling and noticeably larger than I was expecting. I was hungry for something healthy and departed very happy indeed.

The dishes I tried were the Green Goddess Soup, with seaweed and sunflower seeds; Kale, Pumpkin and Seaweed Salad, with marinated shiitakes, seeds and sprouts, tamari and orange dressing and the Seared Prawns with heirloom carrot and baby bean salad, hummus and orange blossom dressing. Every dish was phenomenal. My better half tried the Chicken Skewers, which had assorted grain, dried fruit and nut salad with tahini yoghurt sauce. He said this was exceptional.

I then came back the week after to try the breakfast menu, which I was very much looking forward to. The Traymore offers a breakfast menu of hot plates, ranging from pancakes to eggs of any kind and ‘The Met Breakfast’ (sausage, eggs and potatoes) for example, amongst other heated delights. What I craved for more and more was the delectable breakfast buffet, beautifully displayed on the bar counter. Juices, and an assortment of fruit, yoghurt and the freshest pastries I’ve ever tasted were all I could ask for first thing in the morning. I even arrived after 11:00am, when I was told the breakfast buffet ends, and was pleasantly surprised to see they were able to accommodate me, even though I wasn’t a guest of the hotel.

I decided to order the Ricotta Pancakes with blueberries, raspberries and bananas, which was a healthy treat that delights the palate and was light enough to avoid breaking the diet. This option was extremely flavorful and the combination of pancake with fresh fruit, always hits the spot first thing in the morning. The freshness of this dish even inspired me to start trying to make it at home! Before my Ricotta Pancakes, I wanted to try the yoghurt, which I remember from Parrot Cay, were so amazingly soft and creamy with diverse flavors such as Mango and Passion Fruit. I tried the Passion Fruit yoghurt that was heavenly. My better half decided to go for the Met Breakfast, as he likes to have something warm and cooked in the morning. He said how the eggs and pork sausage (they also have a turkey sausage option) were cooked to perfection, with the potatoes, sprinkled with peppers, acting as the perfect accompaniment. I was dying to try one of the COMO Shambhala Wellness Juices from the menu of 10 choices available. These are cold pressed juices, available in every COMO property worldwide and are designed to replenish and revitalize, along with being very nutritional. I tried the “Stress Reliever” which included carrots, apple, ginger and grapes or Beets (not sure which) and was one of the best juices I have every tasted. This gave me the energy I needed for the rest of the day.

The Art Deco design of the hotel keeps the original style from the 1930’s gives the whole hotel and restaurant a sense of peace and tranquility, with the soothing mint green tones, grays and whites almost transporting you in time. The terrace outside and overlooking the pool is where we had our breakfast, and is beautifully peaceful and serene, allowing you to eat in privacy, while at the same time, being a great spot for watching the locals enjoy the outdoor weather. This is my new number one place to go in South Beach after my yoga class, for a delightful drink at the pool bar, breakfast or lunch with my friends or better half.

Next up, an overnight stay at the hotel itself. Stay tuned.

I had an amazing time at the Metropolitan, we were perfectly received by the whole staff making us feel very special.
Everything is about details in this very refined place, food is delicious, decoration is amazingly beautiful, the sweet sound of music as a background, this is a perfect romantic place to hang out!! In the heart of South beach but keeping the quiet spirit of Art deco... i felt in love with the place :)

We just returned today from the newly opened Metropolitan Como Hotel in South Beach. We have stayed at many SOBE properties over the past 5 years including the W Hotel. I have to say the Como is like staying in a European friend's gorgeous beach house. Everyone was so welcoming, we felt like traveling royalty. A personal handwritten message from Javier, the General Manager, made us feel the extra warmth that is so missing in the bigger properties. The note was accompanied by a beautiful plate of desserts. The overall vibe is sleek, modern and so,so, so comfortable. The beds were like sleeping in the clouds. The staff is amazing and will go to any length to make your stay a successful and happy experience. Of course the overall warmth generates from the wonderful Javier, who makes you feel like the only guest staying at Como. The rooms are new and engineered as only an International Hotel group could with well thought-out features. My husband would literally not get out of the Rain Forest Shower for over 45 minutes. He was in love! He also was mad for the reading lights that are affixed to the custom lovely white leather headboard. He is ordering them for home. We didn't try the restaurant but it seems to be winning rave reviews with many people doing lunch and dinner at the foxy Traymore. Whoever the designer is for hotel, I felt captured nuance of luxurious elegance by the sea. I felt so relaxed by the infinity pool area. An oasis like no other with lovely modern furniture and an amazing outdoor sitting area. This is our new home away from home. Just a dream on South Beach.....

Room Tip: ask for oceanfront if possible...

We have been Goldilocksing our way up and down Miami/South beach for years, finally we found the place that is just right. The hotel is in a chill location (away from the hordes). Both the pool and the beach are sublime. The food, oh wow, it is truly inspired. Not a ton of parking around. Trust the gents at the valet, they were aces. Check in was easy and well run. The room was fantastic with lovely decor, a perfect bed, fun lighting and finally enough shoe space for two ladies. Every member of staff was on their A-game, but a special shout out to Sunny at the pool bar. This hotel is something spectacular. I just hope they have room for us next month...

We had a great weekend at the Metropolitan COMO on south beach (former Traymore) this past weekend. The hotel is situated on a quieter stretch of south beach which was perfect for us. The pool and beach experience were excellent - the staff there were very attentive & it was beautifully relaxing as a result. The hotel decor/room design was simple but charming - with lovely attention to detail. We ate breakfast and lunch at the hotel both of which were delicious. The hotel is still getting up and running (it was their 1st week open...) & was about 85% complete during our stay which resulted in a few niggles that we highlighted to management - who responded perfectly. Thank you to Javier and team for a great stay - look forward to coming back & trying the hydrotherapy pool etc another trip!

I'm a regular customer of the Raleigh on Collins each was the only Art Deco Hotel on Collins avenue that kept its authentic flair over the years/owners... Well not anymore!

The Metropolitan by COMO brings back the taste of what the wealthy traveler could have experienced in the 40's when traveling to South Beach.

I feel pretty special every time I'm having my breakfast on the terrasse enjoying exquisite food (everything they served is made in-house) whitout having to suffer some blasting techno music from a random DJ.

I also appreciate the fact that they respected the original design and feel of the place without going overboard with the decoration. Less is more is the Moto here which brings the elegance back to Miami.

Thank you and please keep it as is.
:)
