This impressive hotel sits across the bay from South Beach in the cosmopolitan Brickell precinct. Located in a prodigious glass tower that dominates the skyline, East’s lobby has a monumental brass and copper tubular art installation – all part of the package to impress its business clientele. The corporate market will also appreciate the almost 2000 square metres of function space, meeting rooms and outdoor venues with eye-popping views. The guestrooms, all 352 of them, have a subtle East-meets-West ambience, thanks in part to Zen-like artworks. Each room has a walk-in rain shower and sliding floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto a spacious balcony. Sugar, a breezy rooftop bar, serves Asian tapas but vegetarians be warned: the menu of the South American-inspired restaurant Quinto La Huella is awash with meat cuts that sizzle and spit on a wood-fired barbecue – guaranteed to satisfy the appetite of any visiting wolf from Wall Street.
