The Mutiny Hotel in Miami, FL

The Mutiny Hotel in Miami, FL

Specialties

Few destinations boast such a distinctive and colorful character as Coconut Grove. In the heart of it all sits the luxurious Mutiny Hotel on Sailboat Bay.

A bright swatch of coral set against the intensely blue South Florida sky, the Mutiny's 12-story tower sets the tone for its interior. Exquisitely decorated in a tropical British Colonial motif, the hotel's thoughtfully appointed, spacious one and two-bedroom deluxe suites all have breathtaking bay or city views.

Long a playground for the Americas, the Grove is also a second-home community to celebrities, corporate titans, and luminaries. Its entertainment and shopping district reflects the quirky yet sophisticated nature of its residents and visitors. Here you'll find everything from haute couture to haughty kitsch  - steps from the Mutiny's door.

After all, where else can you see the stars in broad daylight, dance through an island festival and enjoy dinner in a funky café? Only at The Mutiny, of course.

History

Established in 1969.

In 1969, The Mutiny Hotel opened its doors for the first time, epitomizing the party atmosphere prevalent in the Grove in the 1970's & 1980's, and was the hotel of choice among the international jet-set, Hollywood celebrities, music industry icons and sport legends.  If walls could talk, ours would tell an epic tale of... until the doors closed for the last time in 1985, marking the end of an era.  

In 1999 The Mutiny Hotel was reborn as one of the premier Condo-Hotels in South Florida.  Our setting in the village of Coconut Grove is ideal for those looking for a deluxe setting, un-obtrusive service and convenience, for a night, a week, a month, or longer.

What a great hotel in South Miami!  I stayed here for work a little while back and I felt like it was my own little apartment.  The room was very spacious, with a kitchen, living/dining room, bedroom, bathroom and balcony overlooking the pool and the bay. Everything was clean and the hotel was quite. Plenty of restaurants and shopping within walking distance. I fell in love with the neighborhood and would love to return to the Mutiny for a non-work trip.

I think the only reason I really liked the Mutiny is because I didn't have to pay for it. I stayed here on my recruiting trip for UM-RSMAS. Their aim was to impress and impress it did. I tried not factoring in that Miami was 80 degrees and the windchill in upstate New York where I was coming from was -20. The staff was kind and patient with our large group. The rooms were all very clean and apartment-like. This was also my first experience with a bidet. As a bidet virgin, I didn't know what to expect when I turned it on. For the record, I wasn't squatting over it, so you don't need to have that horrible image in your head right now. I turned the water on low and immediately a jet of water shot straight to the ceiling, causing water to rain down over the entire bathroom. No chance in hell I was going to get on top of that thing. To this day, I am still a bidet virgin.

I have stayed at this hotel one time, and the stay was great. Very friendly staff, clean room, and no issues at any time. The pool area is very nice and clean, and they always have a clean stock of towels near by. Valet is a little pricey, but you are allowed to go in and out and not have to pay for the parking fee again.

Granted, I was here for about 10 hours total so I can't comment on the pool, the restaurant, the housekeeping,and all the services, however, I was not impressed; although it was no nightmare either. What can I say? I've experienced better.

I booked last minute and got a good rate. Upon arrival I was in a rush to attend a rehearsal dinner so wanted to get up to my room, drop my bags off and head out. That did not happen. The Mutiny uses these weird hotel keys, for which you must sign a form allowing them to charge you 8 dollars per key if lost. When I got up to my room and inserted the key nothing happened. I tried the other key. Nothing. Now it is not so unusual a key does not work, so I went to the concierge to get it fixed, except here the concierge does not fix you key. You have to have security do it. So I went back up to my room, or rather hallway outside (which faintly smelled like dog), and waited about 10 minutes for security. Security was apologetic and fixed the keys, but it should not be such an inconvenience to get into your room.  Another negative, my girlfriend told me her shower went cold midway through and the shower also flooded.

The room itself was fine. It was clean and spacious. It was dated. The TV in the living area was not a flat screen and the stereo was reminiscent of one I got in 1995. I am guessing they gave me a sub par room since I got the last minute traveler rate. The view was also not good. Dumpsters. I understand giving the lower quality rooms to those paying lower rates, but it was obvious in this case they were doing so, as I had requested a high floor and was on one of the lowest. Also, I read some rooms were redone.

On the bright side, the front desk was good at getting cabs, the room was cold through the night and the bed was pretty comfortable. The location is good too. If in a pinch I would stay here again but am in no rush to go back.

Had a great time at the Mutiny. Perfect if you've got a kid because of the kitchenette and separate living room area with sleeper sofa and a second flat screen tv. The pool was warm, and the location easy walk into coconut grove. Parking $21 per night and didn't see an easy way around that. The Fresh market a half mile up the road is handy for supplies. There may be a better deal around, but for privacy and a kitchen definately recommended.

Good size suite (but no desk), old, saggy mattress, friendly but way too laid back service (desk staff AWOL, etc). Wi-fi in room supposed to cost, but then the desk said it was free. That's good, because it was quite weak.

Great location, walkable to water, shopping, Barnacle State Park.

Two stars for hotel experience, three for location.

I stayed at the Mutiny this past weekend. We got the 2 bedroom suite, with kitchen and a balcony. Best part was the view. We can see all the sailboats int he water.

For the price of the hotel, I expected much better though. In the master suite, the shower had rust stains, and if you looked up you can see the ceiling had water damage. They also have very old tv's, although I didn't watch any tv, it's something that is important to those who may be staying long. The tv was probably 27". The living room sofa, just looked dirty, like if I took a vacuum to it, it would come out black. The kitchen was the best part, very convenient to cook, a little small though.

The 2nd bathrooms door knob was broken, we had a little party and people were getting stuck in the bathroom, calling for us. LOL
Also, on the side wall it was bubbling out, water damage, I am assuming.

The 2nd bedroom had twin beds and no tv. So if you have children and you like for them to have a tv, this is inconvenient, but if you don't like for you children to watch too much tv, then this is a good thing.

The hotel front desk, bell boy they were all very nice. Good hospitality.

Only other complaint I would make was that at 1:30 am the security guard came up to tell us that the paper we had on the door was inappropriate, Mind you, we had the corner room and we weren't even making noise, just sitting in the room talking. I'm not sure if he was trying to get in the room but that just made us upset.

The are is great though, you have a view, and you can walk to Coco Walk within seconds. You have clubs and bars near by if you want to party, and stores to shop in during the day. Very convenient if you don't have a car.

If you can afford a nice hotel for 350 or up I recommend you go some where else.

ok the good first:
-the location is great right in the heart of coconut grove, walking distance to many great restaurants and bars, plus a great view of the ocean and nearby marinas and parks.
-the prices are decent for the size of the suites. this place is a condo-hotel so some people actually live here.

now the bad:
-check in and check out were both really slow, almost disorganized.
valet was ridiculously slow, i waited about 15 minutes each of the 2 times we got our car out.
-i had booked a 2 bdrm PENTHOUSE suite (which comes with a rooftop terrace and jacuzzi)
-at check in, i am given a regular 2 bdrm suite. when i said something, the guy apologized and said there were no more penthouses so he would offer me a $100 credit. i accepted and went on my way. when i got to the suite, i looked online and realized there was a $200 price difference in the penthouse and regular suite i now had. so we called down and they said they would credit the $200, vs the $100. im thinking they should be crediting a lot more than what is owed to me for their mistake. (apparently their website allows for overbooking, so beware).
-they ended up giving us the suite at the reduced rate plus $100 additional credit for the inconvenience.
-i appreciate the customer service, however it was annoying we had to nag 3 times for what was the right thing to do on their part.

also should note the rooms are a little outdated. the sofa and chairs are not comfortable and we found that several of the dishes, cups, and silverware were dirty. there was also some hair in the shower and overall the place didnt look that clean.

i was disappointed and would probably never return.

I stayed at the Mutiny on a work trip to Miami.  Very conveniently located near shopping, but far enough away from the scene to escape.  My room was an enormous suite with a full kitchen.  The bathroom had a very nice full tub, toiletries from Bath & Body Works, and a bidet (which I have to admit--I definitely did not know how to use).  

They also have a very nice pool which was not used very much by other guests (most of whom, from what I understand, own their suites and use them as sort of a time share). And, they have a nice weight room with two treadmills.

On top of all the nice amenities (also including a decent restaurant and good room service), the folks who work there are very friendly and helpful.  I truly enjoyed my stay.  April is a great month to visit!

Wow.     As good as it gets( at least with kids)

Super great rate.   Low valet parking fee.   Great suite, well maintained

Nice simple pool, decent restaurant, but this place gets 5 stars for all the previous, plus the BEST cust svc I've EVER experienced in a US hotel.

Fire alarm went off one night, turns out there was a leaky sprinkler on our floor.   Mgt handled the emergency quickly and profesionally, as to our surprise, took $50 off our room bill for the inconvenience

Can't recommend this place enough

Plus, coconut grove is one of the coolest neighborhoods in Miami.   No gangsters and not many college kids crowding the bars ad restaurants.    Good for the 30-60 age bracket

I enjoyed my stay at the Mutiny Hotel a lot during my recent trip to Miami. First off, every encounter that we had with hotel staff was very pleasant - every staff member was very friendly and helpful (minus the restaurant staff - I mention it in my review of Atchanas). The hotel also has a really calm yet energetic vibe to it. There's always upbeat house music playing in the lobby, yet there's never annoying commotion caused by guests or staff.

The rooms are decent, yet I thought the spacing was kind of odd - the hallway and bathroom were both huge, but the room and living room were kind of small. However, I did enjoy having a suite room with a kitchen and a pull out bed in the living room helped since we had 4 people.

The only complaint on the room was that part of the floor in the bedroom was really dusty. I noticed that my allergies were pretty bad in the morning, and after walking around the bedroom, my feet got dirty. Other than that, everything else was fine.

The hotel also has a convenient location. None of us had ever been to Florida, but we were able to easily get to Coconut Grove for our dining and shopping needs the first evening.

I've never stayed here, but I have partied here, and the room we were in had an amazing view. I never knew the bay was that vast!

The rooms are nice, but nothing spectacular...well, being that a bunch of no good/hoodlum/hootin'n'hollarin'/hood rat kinda stuff was going down when I was here, the room was a bit on the messy side. But, aside from the party-wreck, the suites have a full but smallish kitchen, a decent bathroom, and are pretty Floridian looking, in a very...Holiday Innish/a time-share in Destin Beach type of way. Not super tacky, but it's got a hint of it. But the hotel as a whole is clean and friendly. The view is really the most stellar aspect, so, if that's more important to you than amenities and decor, then this is a good option for you. Plus, my friend who was renting the room said they have pretty good deals/specials in regard to price.

And for tourists, the Grove isn't a bad option for locale. It is a bit collegey and gets a tiny bit hectic on Wednesdays and Thursdays, but it's very lush and pretty. It's also close to South Beach, Key Biscayne, and the artsy districts like Midtown/Wynwood/Design Districts. Plus, if you stay at this hotel, you can literally walk across Bayshore to a few restaurants and bars that are right on the water and nothing beats sipping on a margarita while watching the sun set.

Did a little research on hotels in the Coconut Grove area while visiting a friend. Saw positive reviews for The Mutiny so I gave it a shot. I booked the room on the website because they have great discounts. Got into a one bedroom suite and was very pleasantly surprised. The room was actually pretty cool.

The room was a good size, with a nice full kitchen with new appliances and a large bathroom. The only thing I found weird was that half the furniture in the room was new and half looked like it was taken from a college dorm room. The TV stands in both the bedroom and the living room looked like they were just bought off Craigslist. And the TV's were circa 1998 and it took some knowledge of TVs to get the living room TV to get a signal. But I didn't stay at The Mutiny to watch TV so it wasn't that big a deal. The bed was very comfortable and the room service was perfect. Oh and there was a huge walk-in closet. That was a surprise. The couch in the living room had a pull-out sofa which helped when a drinking buddy needed to crash for the night. The room keys are also unique in that you have to sign for them and if you lose them they're $8 each.

I was on the 9th floor and had an amazing view of the harbor and morning sunrise. The hotel looks very modern and is a very short walk to all the bars/restaurants in Coconut Grove. You have to valet park for like $20/day but you can get your car in and out as often as you wish. The valet attendant was very nice. There was a pool which looked clean but I didn't use it. And the restaurant looked good.

I'd definitely stay here again. Just make sure to ask for a top floor to get a good view.

Springing for a last minute room was certainly a much better deal than risking a DUI. In all fairness, it could have been that we booked so last minute, but it seems as if we either got upgraded or these rooms are really spacious.
Either way, the staff was quite accommodating, the location was fantastic. Waking up and taking a stroll to a cool breakfast place on the grove and the catching a nap before check out was really, really cool.
I definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to Miami that wants to have a good location but not totally immersed in the craziness and hustle bustle of other party places in town.

Great place....great service! This place is big but feels small and cozy! Parking fee can get pricey but the full kitchen and refrigerator makes up for not needing to go out every night...I would definitely return.

I stayed at the Mutiny a few weeks ago while in town for a wedding. The room was  huge. We were not expecting it to be that nice. However Michelle at the front desk needs to work on her attitude and customer service. She seems like she is a product of the south Florida attitude to treat everyone like a stupid tourist. While checking in, Michelle proceeded to answer the phone not once but twice in the middle of conversation without excusing herself. When I needed to ask her a question to complete our conversation, I shhh-ed like I was a child. It seemed like the other front desk staff was used to overcompensating for Michelle's horrible customer service. In addition to this the maid stole $60 cash while cleaning our room. I wouldn't return to the Mutiny if you paid me.

I'm giving this hotel 3 stars based on looks alone. I booked two rooms at this hotel (one for me and my husband, and one for my brother-in-law and his wife for their wedding night). My husband attempted to check in early, so he and the other groomsmen could change and get ready before the wedding. The woman at the front desk told him the hotel was fully booked, but they were trying to clean the rooms, which was fine. At 3 pm (check in time), he was only given one room and was told the other was still being cleaned. At 4 pm, the room was still not clean, but she was able to offer him another room. So this other room was sitting empty while we waited on one to be cleaned? Then, when we arrived after the wedding, the valet (you have to valet because you can't park your own car) stood by and watched as my husband and the groom removed bags from the car, didn't offer to help, and was more concerned about how we were going to pay for valet service. And, to top it off, there was no one at the front desk to greet guests or answer questions. The hotel is really pretty, but that's about it. Won't be staying here again, and I sure won't recommend it to anyone.

I stayed here on a business trip and when I arrived I was surprised to find that the room was actually a full suite, with full kitchen and washer and dryer.  There were plenty of electric outlets for charging my electronics and plugging in the hair dryer in a room other than the bathroom (sorely needed in many other hotels).  The bed was super comfortable, and the rooms were well maintained and clean.  I only wish I had more time to enjoy the room, the exercise room, the pool and the neighborhood.  
It is a short walk to the Coconut Grove shopping district, which has some great places to eat in or take out.  
A highlight of my stay here was the concierge.  One evening I left my work materials in a bag on a trolley in Coral Gables and was frantic that it was lost.  Very early the next morning before leaving for work, I asked the concierge if she would contact the trolley company to see if they had found it.  On my return from breakfast, she told me they had my bag and gave me the address and the name of the person to see.
The restaurant service and food was very good, but a bit on the pricey side, especially for breakfast.  
I can't wait to go back to Miami just to stay here again.

We stayed here the weekend while visiting family in Coral Gables. The location is great and the rooms were quiet but I think there are better options for the same price unless you are staying with a family and need extra space. The front desk was helpful and did switch our room immediately when we had an issue. However, the bathrooms are in serious need of an update and there was no service at the pool. The gym had a musty odor so we did not use it.

The Mutiny is one of the best hotels in Miami.  Location is great overlooking the bay and in the heart of Coconut Grove.  All rooms individual and are suites.  Fantastic staff from bell man, front desk, housekeeping bartenders, wait staff  to manager.  We had a a block of rooms for my daughters wedding and everything was perfect.  We stayed for several days before and after the wedding and just had a fantastic time. Most people flew in from Michigan for the wedding and this was a perfect spot for them.   I can't say enough about the Mutiny  and the EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE  we all received.  European flair..Five stars across the board.  Not one complaint.  We will be back soon.

Awesome hotel. The interior is great. I was in town for a wedding, located next store. Took the party back to here. No issues, everyone raved about the size of the suite. It got 15 people comfortably. Staff is super nice and accommodating. Will return again.

Mutiny on the Bay is in reality a condominium with many investor-absentee owners who "rent" their units to a managing company, which in turn pays to use the "Summit" hotels brand name . The rest of units are occupied by resident owners and private rentals.
Sonesta in Coconut Grove operates similarly .
It's called "Condo-Hotel"
Both properties have issues... noise & housekeeping being two of several.

Stayed there for a wedding that took place close by. We had a spacious room, nice balcony, full kitchen, bathroom, and Living/dining area. Bed/pillows could have been better. Felt like the mattress protector was a tarp. Other than that it was good. A bulb was missing from the lamp in the bedroom(no big deal)Valet was nice and quick. Would stay again, just bring my own pillows. The shower knobs both said C(cold) which my girlfriend and I always find humorous. Out friends were in one of the slightly smaller rooms upstairs, Their shower had two H's and we offered to trade and they gracefully declined :). They didn't get a balcony but had a nicer kitchen. I enjoyed our stay.

Good hotel in a great location and wonderful staff -- that about sums it up.

Noting too exciting about the hotel itself, other than the fact that there are full suites with kitchens (not that we ever used ours considering the great restaurants nearby).

The biggest down side is that the bed felt like a fold-out bed. Thin, creaky mattress that wasn't very comfortable at all. Not sure how a hotel does that these days.

The staff is nice and courteous, but that's probably the best thing about staying here -- other than the locations. I'd recommend calling down for the valet though, because sometimes it took forever to get our car in and out, and there's no non-valet option.

What a gem in gorgeous, fun Coconut Nut Grove. My two daughters and I checked in for two days and a night at this pristine, spacious hotel and were beyond impressed by the staff and hospitality. From the valet to housekeeping everyone made sure we were happy and well taken care of. The rooms were extremely spacious and the views and appointments fantastic. I can't wait to come back!!!!

This is probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are owned by individuals and not the hotel so each room is decorated differently. The room my wife and I stayed in barely had any furniture and had a strong mildew smell. The bed was as hard as a rock and probably was brought in off the side of the road. The best part was that the sliding door to the outside was broken and didn't lock properly. When I complained about the room, they gave me complimentary parking which is about $20 a day. I would definitely recommend that you stay so where else and avoid at all costs.

I SO enjoyed my stay at The Mutiny.
I had an amazing view of the bay from our double balcony & the place was bigger than my condo in New Orleans!
Food was great at the restaurant & the pool/waterfall was beautiful. Felt like I was in some exotic rainforest. Staff was nice & accommodating.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a classy way to stay in corral gables.

Cute hotel. We came in town to visit some of his friends from law school.  We stayed from Thursday-Sunday in a really large suite with a kitchen. We unfortunately didn't have a view of the bay, but it's okay because we were usually out and about doing other things. Our location was great for just quick walks around the corner to dining establishments or a short drive to south beach. The lobby was very nice and clean and the staff very friendly and helpful.

We did not get a car. We used über to get around the city and saved money on not needing to utilize the mandatory valet. Our room was clean and spacious. There were a few things that stopped the hotel from being really successful in our eyes. For some reason our fridge never got really cold, but we just had water in it so we didn't care much. The paint job on the walls was poorly done a long time ago and hasn't seen a fresh coat in many years. The mattress was very flat and wasn't overly comfortable. But it was not the absolute worst I've ever slept on. The pool area was lovely. Like an adorable oasis in the city. But the beauty was detracted in my opinion by the soaking wet and rather dirty chairs. We heard many dogs barking in adjacent rooms, but we are animal lovers so that didn't bother us either.

What I was absolutely unimpressed by was the room service. We ordered a few different things for brunch; the three egg omelette, the breakfast wrap, and a chicken quesadilla. The chicken quesadilla was actually quite good. It was stuffed with juicy chicken and vegetables. But my breakfast wrap was disgusting and his omelette was less than impressive. I was upset by how much money we spent on the food and how poor quality it really was.

We also several times pointed out how much they nickel and dimed you for everything. $10 a day for wifi, $25 a day for valet parking, etc.  We did not use any additional services for that reason.

But overall we really enjoyed staying at the Mutiny. It gave us exactly what we needed for an extended weekend trip, just the two of us.
