mid the plethora of high-rise hotels in Miami Beach lies the stunning property changing the face of hospitality in Miami. The Miami Beach EDITION is the talk around town, and with a reason. The collaboration between hotelier Ian Schrager and Marriott International has revived the era of intimate glamour in hotels, where unpredictability is the key.
While most luxury hotels carry the badge of traditionalism, the Miami Edition seems to have created its own badge. Rooms are understated, featuring clean lines and minimalist furnishings. Salsa and cumbia can be heard soaring through the hallways and the upbeat, vibrant Miami atmosphere is felt immediately upon stepping foot on the property. Is Miami back?
Once known mainly as a spring break destination, over saturated with college students and an outdated food scene, Miami today boasts a vibrant art, design and culinary sphere. The Miami Beach Edition arrived just in time to set the bars high and show the world a Miami we have all been eager to experience.
The white marble floors and gold mosaic tile columns in the lobby scream old-school Miami and are true to the original building, which opened in 1955. While gold and marble are symbols of opulent luxury, here they are used with sensibility, making room for an oasis of green palm trees to grow abundantly. Talk about contrast…
Among the 294 epically relaxing rooms are 23 two-story bungalows with ocean views. The property also features 26 residences. You will never want to leave. Talking about never leaving, as if comfort and relaxation weren’t enough, the hotel also features an impressive range of dining and entertainment options.
Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten makes his Miami Beach debut with the upscale Matador Room and Market restaurant, where sipping cocktails out of a copper pineapple is the norm. Want more? Try the disco bowling alley, ice-skating rink and nightclub located in the basement. Impeccable service runs from the rooms to the pool side area and beach front cabanas. Be prepared to be blown away.
