Cheapest Four Seasons In Florida: Disney Vs Surfside Vs Miami Vs Palm Beach

Tips : Accommodation

Which is the cheapest Four Seasons in Florida? Disney in Orlando, Miami city hotel, Miami Surf Club on the beach or Palm Beach? It is virtually impossible to get a discount at Four Seasons hotels. They are one of the most luxurious hotel brands and are in high demand. But you can take advantage of low season offers and deals and pick a room at the cheapest property in the area, to make your stay cheaper.

We have also outlined which of these Four Seasons resorts is the best, so that you know which to choose depending on what you are looking for; city nightlife, beachside loveliness or pool, and theme park bliss.

The most luxurious hotels in Miami include the Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club right on Miami Beach and the Four Seasons Hotel Miami in the Brickell neighborhood but not on the beach. In our opinion, the Miami Surfside property is the superior property. Of course, it may not be convenient if you are working in Miami, but for rooms, views, beachside location with a dreamy pool, and historic significance, Four Seasons Surf Club wins.

Beyond Miami, there are two more Four Seasons hotels in Florida, Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort and Four Seasons Palm Beach

The Cheapest Four Seasons Hotel In Florida?

Well, there isn’t a conclusive answer to this question. It is always worth testing the cost of a 4-night vs 3-night vs a 2-night stay as there may be a 2nd/3rd/4th or even 5th night free to encourage you to stay at the hotel for longer. Beyond this, the Miami city hotel is usually the cheapest at the right time of the week and year and the Miami Surfside property tends to be the most expensive, but pricing depends very much on the season and availability.

My advice would be to book as far in advance as possible on a refundable rate. This way you can be sure to get the room you want and can take advantage of offers. If it is a refundable rate you can amend your booking closer to the time. That said, advance purchase 20% off rates are also worth taking advantage of, as long as you are not expecting your plans to change.

In terms of facilities, our winners are:

  • Best for beach: Four Seasons Surf Club & Four Seasons Palm Beach
  • Best for pool: Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort

  • Best overall for families: Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort
  • Best for value: Four Seasons Miami, it is much cheaper

Review: Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach

Four Seasons Palm Beach much like Miami’s Surfside, is right on the beach. Palm Beach is a playground for the rich, with names like Kennedy and Astor as regular guests, this tiny resort on Florida’s east coast is the ultimate getaway for anyone who likes shopping at trendy boutiques, golfing on world-class courses, pampering at the spa, or sipping cocktails in a beachfront cabana. Try and stay for the annual sea turtle hatchings.

Four Seasons Palm Beach remains Palm Beach Island’s only Five-Star, Five-Diamond resort. With 47 miles of pristine golden beaches, Palm Beach, Florida has a setting for everyone, from romantically private stretches of sand to family-friendly beaches with playgrounds, nature centers, and beach parks that offer snorkeling, wind sailing, fishing or paddleboarding. A key feature of this newly refurbished resort is the two pools, one for families and the other second pool for adults only. Catch a gleeful glimpse of a loggerhead turtle, or relax in a cabana with the complimentary service of personal beach staff at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach.

Review: Four Seasons Surf Club

The Surfside Four Seasons is beautiful and right on the beach. It is my favourite Four Seasons in Miami and is the best choice for the following reasons:

  • Location just a few blocks south of the luxurious Bal Harbour shops and 20-minutes drive from South Beach
  • The beach is just steps away
  • The rooms have been beautifully and recently refurbished and offer stunning views
  • Oceanfront views almost hang over the ocean with enormous floor to ceiling windows
  • Glass fronted balconies enable you to enjoy the sunshine in your own private space
  • The pool is super stylish and the gardens edge the beach with plenty of loungers
  • The bar has a tropical feel with high ceilings
  • The hotel oozes sophistication with photo opportunities at every corner!
  • Whether you are a family, a couple or with friends, this Four Seasons has it all

Four Seasons Miami

Four Seasons Miami is located in the Bricknell neighbourhood, this is very much an urban hotel in Miami so doesn’t offer the resort feel of the Four Seasons Surfside resort.

This hotel has a convenient location downtown Miami’s financial center and it does have a two-acre, rooftop pool terrace, surrounded by palm trees and seventh-floor views but it does feel like a city resort rather than a resort hotel or a place to take a vacation. That said, this is all taken into account at the cheaper price!

In our opinion, the Surf Club wins hands down but if you aren’t sure, you could multi-center and try both, and make your own judgment.

Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort

Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort is nestled within the 47 square miles of Walt Disney World but tucked away in the secluded millionaires’ row of Golden Oaks.

This lakeside haven has extensive gardens, pools, and towering pillars of palms and cypress. Tee off at the exclusive Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club Orlando, splash around with the kids at Explorer Island, treat yourself to a soothing, post-park massage at The Spa, or toast the evening fireworks with dinner at our rooftop steakhouse Capa.

The hotel has its own luxury coach service to the four theme parks and your room comes with a free EXTRA MAGIC HOURS benefit and DISNEY FASTPASS+ up to 60 days prior to arrival, making it the perfect base for your next Orlando adventure.

Beyond Walt Disney World® Resort is the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, an incredible new world which is sure to excite any Star Wars fan young and old.

Room Tip: You must book a room above the fifth floor on the west side if this is your first trip, a Park View room so that you can see the nightly Disney fireworks! Other rooms overlook the Golden Oak properties or the surrounding lake and do not have a direct view out onto this wonderful spectacle.

That said, Golden Oak View rooms are cheaper and the same in square footage. Given that you are some distance from the park and so the fireworks are distant and look quite small, you can’t really hear them, you might feel the premium is not worth paying for. Golden Oak View rooms are lovely and you can always watch the fireworks from the 14th floor of the hotel from the hotel balcony.

There are seven dining and lounge options. All are great, Ravello has its own bar and celebrates fresh Italian food and cocktails. The pool bar PB&G offers light bites. There is a coffee bar, plus the golf clubhouse has a restaurant open for lunch.

The rooftop restaurant Capa is the place to go if you don’t have a room with a view of the fireworks. This restaurant is on the roof and from here, you . can watch the nightly Disney fireworks.

Finally, there is a free kid’s club (ages four to 12) is open from 9 am – 5 pm, with its own water-play area, water-slides, and fun.
