Hotel Review: The Confidante Miami Beach

Our site may contain affiliate links. Read Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

The Confidante Miami Beach is part of Hyatt’s Unbound Collection located in Miami Beach’s Mid-Beach neighborhood. The hotel boasts 354 rooms, with just 14 suites, so plan on using a suite upgrade award if you’re looking to confirm into a suite here as a Globalist.

This property is a World of Hyatt Category 4 property, meaning free night awards start at 15,000 points per night. Additionally, this means that you’re able to redeem your Category 1-4 free night certificates from the credit card or earning status with Hyatt here, making it a great option in Miami Beach.

As a Globalist, I was used a suite upgrade to confirm into a Ocean View Balcony Suite, which is considered a standard suite here.

The highlight of the suite was the balcony overlooking the pools and ocean.

Breakfast is served at the hotel’s restaurant Ambersweet daily from 7:00–11:00 a.m. As a Globalist I was told to order what I’d like and it would be removed from the folio upon check-out. (Breakfast Menu)

Bottom Line

Despite the pandemic, business was pretty much as usual at the property and in Miami Beach. All the hotel amenities and dining outlets were open, however masks were required throughout the hotel. Housekeeping service has been suspended.

As a Globalist, I had a great stay, but I can’t reiterate enough that if you’re hoping for an upgrade be sure to use a confirmed suite upgrade. I would not expect to receive any sort of upgrade upon check-in due to the hotel being busy.

According to the front desk staff, the  property has been running high occupancy the past several months, and with just 14 suites more often they’re full with paying guests, plus they have a high number of Globalists staying here.

If you do have any Category 1-4 free night certificates, this could be a great option to stay here, since you avoid the resort fee when redeeming points or free night certificates.

  1. I just ended my stay and the best way to sum it all up is, if you like being Lied to then run dont walk to this hotel. Seems the FD is well trained with , “Sorry no upgrades are available as the hotel is soldout during your stay”. Of cause when you take out a laptop log-on and show them its a total Lie or maybe the hotels computer isnt talking with Hyatts, a short walk into the back office will produce an upgraded room. Im not taking about a suite, just a room with a balcony.

    Also it doesnt pay to stay here even if Valet is comped as the garage is across the street and with the construction that just started they have to go to 30th St in order to turn Left and get to the Hotel, so it will take for ever till the car gets there, and it takes forever to pull into the hotel as well. IMO for now its best not to stay anywhere on Collins bet 45-30 st
