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
"An expensive base with average service and shabby rooms"
We checked into the Fontainebleau hotel on a Friday evening and the lobby was filled with big groups of rowdy party goers. When we asked to be located in a quitter area, the staff simply shrugged and said there is no quiet area on a Friday. The room that cost me over £300 for one night didn't have a great view and it was a little tired looking. The pool area is lovely and we enjoyed a cocktail on one of the sunloungers. The pool staff however never actually brought back our change as promised. We wanted a luxury hotel to stay in after our long flight but this didn't deliver. We wouldn't stay here again.
The Fontainebleau is a large and beautiful hotel. It was quite crowded during the weekend we spent there. It was difficult to find loungers at the various pools which were crowded and noisy. We were surprised to find that here were charges for use of some pools. The beach was lovely, however. The restaurants were excellent both food and service. When making thr reservation by phone, they added complimentary valet parking and a $50.00 hotel credit for each day. Upon arrival, they had no record of those bonuses. A manager was summoned who listened to the reservation phone call. The comp. valet parking was honored and the daily credit was for one pool bar for drinks and food. We were also upgraded from an ocean front king room to a junior suite, which was nice. There were no lounges where you could relax and listen to live music and dance if desired. We did wander next door to the Eden Roc where they had live music. I had remembered the Fontainebkeau when it had that, plus celebrities who performed in their dinner theatre. The stay was fun but disappointing in some areas.
"Excellent for conferences, families and nightlife"
This is a famous hoteI. It is regularly a movie set that you might recognize even if you have never been there. It's mid-century architecture bring memories of the Rat Pack, old Bond movies and an era of cool that brings a smile to your face. It has one of the hottest night clubs in town (plenty of celebrity spotting to be done) and an excellent spa. I was at the Fontainebleau for a conference (my company holds one here every year) and the facilities, catering and general organization were superb. The location couldn't be better as far as the beach is concerned and they have very nice pools too. Naturally, the spa, hotel shop, bars and restaurants are expensive (at least by my standards) but what you get is generally the best. I love this place and would like to spend time here privately but I rarely have another reason to come to Miami Beach. A couple of cautionary points. Miami is not the safest place in the world and, on arrival this time, there had been shooting just outside the lobby and the police had shut down all the surrounding streets, making access very difficult. Not the hotel's fault but just bear in mind where you walk after dark. Second - and this is always my biggest gripe about the hotel - is that there is no tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. To get coffee in your room will cost you $20, including delivery charge, tip, etc. As things go, not that big of a deal.
"Can I just live here'"
I enjoyed life as a celebrity for one day without regret. I knew I had made the right choice as soon as I pulled onto the lot. Check in was fast, friendly, and fun. I was upgraded to a suite since it was my first time staying. I love that I had to use my room key card to operate the elevator. Upon entering my room all I could say was wow. I had to take a moment and let everything sink in. It was a deluxe room with kitchen facilities, a coffee maker with coffee to my standard, an iMac, a seating area, a beautiful view. This place is clean and inviting. It's a few steps from Miami Beach. The choice to lounge by one of the many pools or sunbathe on the beach is tough. Do both! I would highly recommend this place to everyone. Family and pet-friendly. This is my home when I visit Miami, I can't imagine staying anywhere else.
