500 Brickell Key Drive
Tel: 866 888 6780
At this fan-shaped high-rise with a sloping roof on Brickell Key, "there is no natural beach, but they have a great pool and a fun little faux beach." Guests enter past a carp-filled pond and encounter white and ocher stucco interiors. Rooms combine Florida design with Asian accents and have walls made from recycled coconut shells, bed bolsters of crimped orange silk, "wonderful ocean and city views, and spacious balconies." Signature restaurant Azul offers a broad range of dishes, from loin of Colorado lamb with harissa to avocado tempura.
