This place deserves a special place in my affection not through staying here but visiting - just a question of personal preference. That's not to say it's current owners haven't done a terrific job on it and at some cost ($1billion spent on the refurbishment). It's an icon of a building - architect Morris Lapidus at the peak of his career in 1954 - and has featured in some unforgettable film scenes from 'Jerry Lewis's 1960 comedy 'The Bellboy' to James Bond 'Goldfinger' and Al Pacino in 'Scarface'. It's one for the bling set, who I'll happily down a poolside cocktail with at sunset time, but my bed for the night is likely to be something a little more understated.

I have been coming here since I was a kid.
What has changed is that through renovations the property has lost a bit of its charm.
The reason it was so popular is because the hotel catered to everyone.
The clientele returned again and again.
In modernizing it,the guests have changed.
It is very modern and hip!
I still love it but I do miss that so many of the long time employees are gone.
It is new,crisp and has everything you could possibly want in a resort.

Fontainebleau- This is only place to be this week!! With Liv, the hottest club in the world in the Lobby and a 40 thousand sq ft. spa, I'm in! There are almost 1600 rooms, some super modern, some a bit more home style! Bring a bathing suit, by the time your done swimming in all pools you will be a dolphin! Lots of families, lots of hipsters and lots of stars LOVE the FB! Oh..and that's where I'm staying!

The Fontainebleau is a great hotel, whether you're a guest or just visiting. The pool area is always fun and a great mix of people. You can visit the lobby bar or LIV nightclub, eat at Scarpetta or one of the other restaurants on the property. The hotel is modern and self-contained.

I know everyone else in the world seems to love this high end resort and maybe I just dont because I am not a baller, but this place just wasnt my scene. The lobby is modern but grand and I just thought everything about this place is over the top. I can see how people are attracted to the flashiness of the place and to the exclusivity of the hotel, but I prefer a place that is a little warm. I felt like the decor, the service and the ambiance were all too cold for me.

Stayed here for a friend's birthday weekend in Miami and had a great time. The rooms were comfy and I liked the clean, modern design. The macs were a nice addition. LIV is right there so it's great to be able to be a short elevator ride from the nightlife. Didn't try much of the hotel food except when hanging out by the pool and it was pretty standard. I think the lobby is beautiful and the staff was all very friendly and courteous. All in all, a great stay.

Wow. This is the hotel of hotels. From the second I walked up until the moment I left this place made you feeling like you were living the life of the rich and famous. The rooms were beautiful, the lobby was gorgeous and the pools... Oh the pools. We ended up getting a bed by the pool and it was absolutely worth the extra money.
Located just off the beach I would highly recommend this hotel for any trip to Miami!
The hotel features 11 restaurants and nightclubs, including Gotham Steak By Alfred Portale, Hakkasan By Alan Yau, and Scarpetta By Scott Conant. An oceanfront pool complex includes a large free-form main pool, a private European pool, and a children's interactive waterscape, along with luxurious private cabanas with flat-panel televisions and butler service. Lapis, the 40,000-square-foot health spa, has 30 private treatment rooms and specializes in thermal therapies.
Room amenities include flat-panel televisions, sound systems with i-Pod docks, and i-Mac computers. Beds are dressed in 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens. Wireless Internet access, local calls, and daily newspapers are included in the resort fee. Select rooms have balconies with views of the Atlantic Ocean.
