The Hyatt Centric Brickell Miami is vibrant and modern. It is located in the business and financial district of Miami, in close proximity to many stores, restaurants and public transportation.
The lobby of the hotel is on the ground floor. Check-in was flawless.
Our Room – King Bed Junior Suite
This was the hallway on our floor.
Our room was a King Bed Junior Suite. It is actually a large room (544 square feet) that was designed and compartmentalized well into bedroom and living room areas. The suite was a corner suite, with a balcony and fabulous views of Biscayne Bay. I note that although this is considered a standard suite, and therefore eligible for Globalist upgrades, I actually booked this room.
I really liked the design and set-up of the room. Plus, because this hotel is new, it had that crisp new feeling, and I also liked the blue and grey color scheme a lot.
One of the nice aspects of being at a newly constructed hotel is that they usually have a lot of electrical outlets! In this day and age, that’s very important!
There was plenty of closet space as well as robes and a safe.
There was a mini-bar. As always, one of the first things I did when I checked in was to ask the hotel to remove the contents of the mini-bar. This gives us some refrigerator space, and it also diminishes the chance of being told I had an item from the mini-bar, when I know I did not.
This curious design was on the outside door of the refrigerator. I’ve never seen anything like this and, at first, thought this was a secret design for placement of items in the mini-bar. I now think that someone just got creative with circle stickers. What do you think?
Check out the notepads in our room – of course we folded some airplanes!
The view of Miami and Biscayne Bay from our room and balcony were picturesque!
The bathroom was bright and clean. As noted below, I really liked all the wall textures, both inside the room and on the hotel property.
Caña Restaurant And Lounge
Caña Restaurant is located on the second floor of the hotel. This is where breakfast was served. It is also a bar and restaurant later in the day. Whether it was the welcoming design, the art on the wall, the friendly staff, the awesome drinks or the delicious food – Caña Restaurant was just awesome.
As a globalist, breakfast at the hotel restaurant was complimentary. There was a buffet as well as a menu from which you could order items ala carte.
I loved the Cuban Eggs Benedict so much that I had it two days in a row!
The breakfast buffet was set up right on the bar counter. The fresh fruit and salad excited me more than the other items.
The Rooftop Pool
The pool is located on the 19th floor. It is actually shared with the residential tenants of a neighboring building called the Panorama.
The Many Textures of the Hotel
Whoever decorated the hotel liked texture. Whether in the hallway or in the shower, there were really interesting textures.
Overall, I liked the hotel. I really liked our room and the restaurant. Although staff was attentive, I felt a bit of remoteness at the hotel. Adding more furniture to the lobby would make the area more inviting and perhaps encourage guests to socialize more. I also thought that a wine hour or welcome drink might be a nice touch.
