East, Miami

Brickell, Miami

The hotel

A soon-to-be-iconic glittering glass tower in the downtown district, EAST is Miami’s latest luxury retreat. Describing itself as a ‘lifestyle hotel’, it’s the dazzling creation of renowned architects and designers from Miami, LA and New York. Framing Miami and Biscayne Bay views, its floor-to-ceiling windows and oversized balconies aren’t just reserved for the suites, every room gets them. And every guest gets treats like the pool deck, with its lap pool, spa pool, plunge pool and hot tub; the Uruguayan ‘parilla’ grill at its Quinto La Huella restaurant; and South East Asian-inspired tapas with a view at Sugar, the 40th floor rooftop bar. Back down on terra firma, there’s more dining – as EAST sits above the swanky Brickell City Centre mall, packed with entertainment, shops and restaurants.

Stayed here from March 8-14. Third time at this property; my son lives in Miami and lives across the street, so the convenience is unbeatable. We always book a two bedroom residence, with kitchenette and living room. This time we were in room 2104, which is not as well laid out as our previous rooms (can’t remember the #’s). So the first night the sensor light in my closet wouldn’t stop turning on and off. Woke me up three times that night. The next morning, my mother in law took a shower and water leaked out of the shower box all the way into the living room. There must have been 10 liters of water on the floor. I went down that morning and advised the desk staff of my two concerns, and they assured me that both issues would be addressed that day. That night, same thing with the light sensor in the closet, and the shower overflowed yet again. After advising the on duty manager of the continued problems, a technician came to the room again and basically deactivated the sensor and installed a plastic gasket on the shower door. That solved the sensor in the closet (it continued to “click” on and off, even though the doors were closed, but at least the light didn’t go on and off), but right up until the day we checked out, they were unable to resolve the shower issue. Listen, no huge deal, and just minor inconveniences, but at a property that charges around $650/night for this room, they probably should have just offered to move us. I find it hard to believe that these problems simply started the day we checked in; prior guests must have had similar problems. Love this place, and will perhaps return in the future. As we are in Miami 2-3x per year, we need a comfortable, convenient place to stay, and East has always offered exactly that in the past. This time left a bit to be desired. The staff was apologetic and helpful, but were essentially unable to resolve our problem. One more try East! You need to up your game!! Read less

Sugar on the top floor of the EAST hotel is AMAZING. They have a really cool prohibition bar too if you prefer being indoors! I went to check out the rooms too and they're gorgeous. Quite small but very modern and have a great view.

East has a zen asian vibe that gives it an urban oasis feel. It's in the center of great shopping, restaurants and entertainment - all within walking distance and the gym and the pool are beautiful but not too scene-y. best Americano ever in the lobby coffee shop. rooms with floor to ceiling windows give great day and night views. My third stay… Read more
