The Mandarin Oriental at the southern end of Brickell Key overlooking Biscayne Bay has a private island hideaway feel even though it is just off Brickell Avenue. The 295 rooms and 31 suites have twice-a-day housekeeping service. Restaurants include the waterside Azul featuring French and Asian fusion and Gaston Acurio's award-winning Peruvian fare at La Mar. The hotel also is child-friendly with free cribs, child-size bath products, a children's menu, special spa services for teenagers and babysitting services. Its two- and three-bedroom suites are particularly suited for families. The hotel has a beach but no swimming in the bay.
