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.

For the price, this hotel misses the mark in several ways. Instead of trying so hard to be technologically advanced, they should spend more time on customer service. It was like pulling teeth to get the information about the parking garage as I'm sure they would rather you spend a slightly higher amount and use the valet. The lights worked intermittently and even shut completely off a few times while I was in the room. The elevators are tricky since you use your room key and get an elevator "assigned" to you. You have no options to push specific floors once in the elevator. What was really surprising was the lack of a regular refrigerator in the room; it's not for lack of space. The beds were not comfortable and the area with the table and bench had no outlets so you couldn't easily work there. There isn't any privacy for the bathroom & shower. I could not get the phone to work so went downstairs to inquire about room service. Instead of helping me place an order right there at the front desk (good customer service), they told me how I could go back up to my room (29 floors) and call them and THEY would put me through to in room dining (bad customer service). I ultimately gave up and went out to eat. Too many issues for the price, especially given the horrible traffic downtown. Read less

We stayed here in August for two nights. We really enjoyed the hotel, although we are a family with two small children and the hotel was somewhat posh (bar updatairs has cover charge of USD 70.-!!), so it would not be the first choice for families necessarily. However, they are super friendly, great rooms, great, great location, would definitely… Read more

it was waiting list about 20 minutes to get a table and when we got the table they want $75 per person over charge, but we want to have only a drinks ,to stand by the bar it was not possible because it was so busy but in the same time you can not get a table just for drinks ,very big disappointment!! the view is amazing
