Which Is The Best? Four Seasons Surf Club Vs Four Seasons Miami


Which is The Best Four Seasons In Miami? 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.

Review: Four Seasons Surf Club

The Surfside Four Seasons is beautiful and right on the beach. It is my favorite 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
  • >

  • 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

Located in the Bricknell neighborhood, this is very much an urban hotel in Miami so it 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.

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.
