My wife and I just returned from a weekend at the Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach. Our needs are fairly basic (somewhere on the beach within 3hrs of NYC), but we tend have fairly critical and discerning taste (we like what we like). We've been to Miami before and have never stayed in the same hotel twice...for a reason. The Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach, for sure, met our basic needs. It is how they exceeded our expectations, however, that has ensured that we will return.
This is a boutique hotel. You are not a number here. Management and staff are just where you need them and disarmingly charming in their approach to any question or concern. They are as eager and able to engage as they are to simply point you in the right direction and send you on your merry way. They know it's the experience you're paying for. A well-run hotel can make a trip...it sure did for our 48-hour escape from the Polar Vortex!
Ask for an ocean view room. Visit the rooftop at sunrise. Use the spa. Get a daybed on the beach. Sip frozen mojitos by the pool. Eat every meal at the hotel. Make a special request. We did...and look forward to doing so again soon.More
