A cool, sensory experience, Mandarin Oriental, Miami’s lobby is an oasis to take refuge in as you relax and even curl up with a good book or one of the glossy MO magazines.
The interior design by Atlanta-based designer Jan Clausen incorporates nautical touches and curved balconies, creating a space that can feel like a concert hall with a Zen twist. There are subtle art and design touches, like blown glass bamboo stalks by Shan Shan Sheng that bring the space to life. When seen from the hotel’s mezzanine level, the lobby glows in lobster-like tones, as the light reflects off the bamboo hardwood floors. The lobby is rarely crowded, with a hushed, relaxed atmosphere while the impeccable service means that any request is filled promptly.
