Ideally located on oceanfront Collins Avenue, in the heart of Millionaire's Row, Fontainebleau Miami Beach is one of the most historically and architecturally significant hotels on Miami Beach. It is located 12 miles from Miami International Airport and 28 miles from Fort Lauderdale International Airport.

Es un hotel emblematico e increible.. todo es lujo y confort en la mejor zona de miami beach.. lo unico malo es que no controlan el tema de los ruidos y los horarios para hacer ruidos, en las noches, es un poco tedioso.-Comment of D. Fabrizio , Argentina the 2015-08-12

"Memorial weekend "
First time in Miami and after hearing about the Fontainebleau from many people I decided to stay here during memorial weekend. Ideal location it seemed that this was the place to be over the weekend very busy pool parties were amazing. However I do think that the £150 daily tax is very steep. Rooms weren't cleaned the best when I moved the table magazines there was a ring of dust from where the magazines had been, the mini bar items also had a thick layer of dust on. The rooms are started to look tired and dated now I was disappointed with my room. Besides this hotels grounds are stunning
"Great Resort with alot of options"
The varied pools and service, restaurants, staff, maintenance are reactive and professional. Our room overlooked the beach on the 11th floor. Rooms a Have nice amenities suitable for the price paid for the room. The only thing is they are expensive for food and drinks. $18.00 for a drink is really pricey. The bottles of wine in the restaurants are upwards of $200.00 to $2000.00. But I guess people have the money to do this'
"Cheat with minibar"
Stayed at this hotel three days, when checked in noticed that mini bar was empty with somebody's left overs such as cake, empty bottels and etc. Called the room service to clean the mini bar. Only next day person from minibar service came to check it. We told that we didn't take anything from it and they told us everything is OK. After that I have talked at reception with manager explaining situation and was convinced that they checked it and they not going to charge us. However at the check out they put 320 dollars bill, after we explained situation again they put away that bill. After 6 days they withdraw 320 dollars from the bank card. Called them twice but nothing changed. So it is a cheating hotel, be carefull. They don't care about guest, says one thing and doing another. They didn't even notify us that there is a evacuation happening in Miami, thanks to the neighbours who tolds us that. I still hope that this hotel will do better check to that situation cause I need those money.
"Don't Understand The Hype"
This was mine and my girlfriends second time in Miami (We are from London, England). Last year I stayed at a different venue but this time I thought I'd see what the 'hype' was about staying at Fontainebleau. I arrived at the hotel on the Thursday before labour day weekend for a 7 night stay, we had booked through Expedia. We checked in and the process was very good and efficient. Although a $150 per day hold was placed on our credit card, not a big deal but $150 is a bit excessive as for 7 days this amounted to $1,050. We went up to our room and I have to say it was very nice! Upon exploring the room we discovered that everything in the fridge and on the counter was on a sensor. If an item was removed for 20 seconds it would be automatically charged. Water was priced at $10, cashew nuts at $13. Having stayed at many hotels we found this VERY strange. We totally understand and expect to pay a premium however Fontainebleau purposely put these sensors on so you cannot take their items out of the fridge and put your own in there. The reason why' Because if you would like a refrigerator then you have to pay for a separate one! Our stay on Thursday night was very nice and it was quiet and peaceful. However then things turned sour. We went down to the pool area and it was unbelieveably busy. There was an adults only pool area which we declined to join. We got some seats around the pool area, however the music from the pool party was ridiculous. We know that Miami is not know for being a peaceful non party place. However a pool party at 1pm does not take into consideration a lot of the people staying at the hotel. This hotel is quite clearly targeted at party goers. Me and my girlfriend are by no means an elderly couple we are in our mid-twenties! It was labour day weekend and we fully expected the hotel to be busy and surely Fontainebleau should have expected this! We wanted to sit on the beach and to get an umbrella there was a 20 mins wait! Oh and I forgot to mention the Umbrella's are charged at $25! Why does the hotel charge a resort fee and then charge $25 for umbrellas' This is clearly a very lucrative way for them to make money as there was at least 40-50 Umbrella's up. Cabanas are charged at $100! Service on the beach was very poor to say the least. 20 mins waiting in 35 degrees heat with the sun directly on us, no water or anything was on offer either. Once we finally got seated we could hear the loud music coming from the pool party. We wanted to order some food and some drinks, we were told the best way to do this would be to download an app. Which we decided to do. after waiting one hour our drinks hard not even arrived! We complained to the waitress and she said this was absurd and they should have come within 30 mins maximum. Our food finally came after 1.5 hours, the waitress informed us that she could not locate us. The food clearly had been out to be delivered to us for over 15-20 mins the chips were soggy and our drinks still were not delivered! This type of service continued over the Labour day weekend. Finally on Tuesday things calmed down. I just wished that Fontainebleau made it clear that loud music would be playing from lunch time until 6-7pm all weekend.
