Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront Revitalizes Property With Stunning New Enhancements and Addition of Oceanfront Tower

The Collins Avenue Hotel Is Gearing Up for the Completion of Its New 93-Room Oceanfront Tower

MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - Since 1940 the Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront, 3925 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Fla. formerly known as the "Cadillac Hotel," has graced the shores of Miami Beach providing guests with a stylish boutique hotel experience that has all the perks of staying in a full resort. Now, the elegant and historic Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront is pleased to announce its new 93-guestroom oceanfront tower set to be completed in Fall 2013.

"We are always looking for ways to enhance the guest experience and provide them with an unforgettable Miami stay," General Manager Joseph LaFleur said. "Our new oceanfront tower will give guests even more opportunities to experience our beautiful ocean views from the comfort of their spacious and well-appointed rooms."

The Cadillac Hotel is distinguished for its iconic architecture and landmark presence as part of the Miami Beach skyline, defining its prominent location which anchors the Miami Beach area and serves as the attraction for business and leisure travelers alike. A vintage South Beach classic, the elegant 263-room hotel was originally constructed as the art deco Cadillac Hotel. After a complete restoration in 2004, the Cadillac Hotel reopened, making it one of the premier boutique hotels in Miami Beach. The guestrooms were renovated in 2009, followed by the lobby and public areas in 2011, under ownership of Hersha Hospitality Trust (NYSE: HT) and management by HHM.

The Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront will be greeting guests with a newly refreshed and modern look from the moment they walk in while reflecting the region's style and vibrancy, drawing from intricate details found in the "Miami" lifestyle and its Art Deco history. To start, the lobby will be more expansive and grand, featuring a new 32-foot lobby bar and lounge for guests to spend time with loved ones or grab a drink with colleagues. Following suit with a beautiful new look will also be a state of the art gym with added workout programming and a complete redesign of their main pool area with spacious cabanas and a deck that seamlessly fuses the outdoor space with the lounge through large operational glass panels; a breathtaking new pool is also being constructed as a part of the new Oceanfront tower sitting beachfront along the popular boardwalk. Additionally, the Oceanfront Surfside Tiki Bar is introducing a completely fresh aesthetic, including a stunning new deck area, entrance and spice to its décor. To round out the exciting renovation highlights are the new guestrooms located in Ocean Tower which will feature a refreshing palette of selections in brilliant hues, creating a dynamic guest space, while elegant sheers frame the inviting beach view below. Overall, the concept for the renovation was to employ the unique motifs of the original Art Deco style reflecting the vibrancy of Miami by incorporating elements of the local beach culture with infused bright hues and rich harmonious textures.

The luxurious Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront also offers an array of on-property amenities, from top rated restaurants to stylish meeting rooms.

The Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront features incredible restaurants on property.
