Located on the Atlantic Ocean, 14 miles northeast of Miami International Airport and 14 miles southeast of Fort Lauderdale Airport, this posh condominium is in a soaring 27-story cylinder trimmed with balconies. With a more residential feel than its neighbor, the newer Trump International Sonesta Resort, this hotel is one of the best in its grade.
The driveway rises up to the fourth-story lobby, whence valets whisk cars down to the lower-level garage. This is one of the only hotels on Collins Avenue with an off-street entrance, another feature that contributes to its overall serenity. The open-plan lobby affords ocean and pool vistas through expansive sheets of glass.
Just beyond the two reception counters is the main restaurant, which is named after its most prominent feature—View. Open-plan seating allows for great ocean panoramas, and the menu fittingly spotlights seafood. Nightly themes, such as sunset sushi, lend diversity to the menu, and Sunday brunch draws locals as well as guests. A pianist plays in the adjoining lounge, and a large terrace permits alfresco dining and drinking. The marketplace delicatessen by the pool supplies gourmet groceries, and a few supermarkets are close by for milk, cereal and such.
The attractive pool deck is flanked by semiprivate whirlpools, and the 25-ft waterfall spills from the lobby level. The fitness center offers a well-equipped gym along with steam and sauna rooms, a small spa for health and beauty treatments, and a juice bar. The hotel boasts 12,000 square feet of meeting space, with a panoramic terrace that can host up to 300. This once pet-friendly condo-hotel is pet-friendly no more.
Elevators rise swiftly to the accommodations, a mix of efficiencies and one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, most privately owned. All are identically furnished and have ocean views from large balconies stretching from sitting rooms to bedrooms. With only eight units per floor, hallways are quiet and proportions generous. Standards vary, but renovations are slated to begin in earnest by summer of 2006. At inspection, only the units on the sixth floor were completed. These have a more attractive contemporary bent with tropical accents, new TVs, plush carpeting and sand- and sea-inspired soft goods. Standards in the older units are acceptable even at these rates. Amenities run to WebTVs, pillow-top mattresses on king beds, and whirlpool tubs in baths. All units, including efficiencies, come with full kitchens equipped with dishwashers, full-size refrigerators and both microwave and conventional ovens. Washers and dryers are concealed in closets. Bedrooms have big TVs, along with armchairs and ottomans, and living areas come with sofa beds and matching armchairs set around coffee tables. TVs are in matching cabinets. The large baths impress with their marble countertops, bidets, and glassed-in showers with cascading showerheads. All apartments have data ports on multilane phones. Room service stops at 10 pm. The staff is thoroughly professional, unlike some of the staff at hotels farther down the beach.
