Welcome to Four Seasons Hotel Miami. Just a block from glittering Biscayne Bay,
in the heart of the city, Four Seasons presents a sophisticated urban oasis within easy reach
of the very best of Miami. A sleek tower of luxurious guest rooms and suites with sweeping
vistas of the city and bay.
"Stepping off busy Brickell Avenue into this hotel, you see a soothing water wall
trickling down from above. Inside, a cavernous lobby is barely big enough to hold the
enormous sculpturespart of the hotel's collection of local and Latin American artists. A 2acre pool terrace on the 7th floor overlooks downtown Miami while making you forget you're
in downtown Miami. Three heated pools include a foot-high wading pool with 24 palm tree
islands, Bahia, is reluctantly hip, with downtown residents gathering for drinks on Friday
night. Service is tops for Miami." Fodor's Florida, 2009
