A high-flyer (70 storeys) in the Downtown financial district, the Four Seasons could be mistaken for an office building. But beyond the façade and the utilitarian lower lobby, it's pure palatial chic. Marble-lined public areas double as gallery space for an impressive modern art collection, anchored by three massive Botero sculptures. The rooms boast views over Biscayne Bay, to be gazed at from padded window-ledge love seats. Amenities include an enormous spa and sports club. The Beach is a 15-minute drive, but the Latin-themed Bahia bar is a more-than-adequate substitute; after a hard day's slouching, nothing beats a tropical breeze and a mojito.
