Britney Gets Pampered Poolside at the Mandarin Miami
When in Miami on the latest stop of her tour, miss Britney Spears apparently had no interest in being the center of attention when offstage. It didn't surprise us in the least that the once-troubled (still-troubled?) songstress opted for the Mandarin Oriental Miami to host her during her stay, bypassing some of the trendier, more see-and-be-seen options on South Beach like the Delano, Gansevoort South and
Viceroy Miami Tides South Beach.
The Mandarin which has been a fave with celebs like Jen Aniston and lovah John Mayer in the past is a little bit of a drive (about 20 minutes, according to TripAdvisor guests) from most of the action in South Beach, but the Asian-inspired decor and quiet luxury was a bit more conducive to the chill-by-the-pool-with-the-kids type of stay that she was looking for.
According to LoveTripper, Brit and her sons checked into a suite most likely one of the two-bedroom suites, which start around $900 and spent some good quality time by the pool. The singer opted to get pampered with a poolside pedicure (or a foot massage) without leaving the comfort of her beach chair. Sigh. Looks rough.
For regular folk opting to go Spears-spotting, you'd be hard-pressed to find any room in the place under about $349 but the mostly-glowing bank of TA reviews insist the service and atmosphere is worth that kind of dough.
