MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) -  Stylish hospitality is on the horizon for Miami, Florida travelers as renovations begin at the popular Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront hotel.

Menu items will feature hot and cold selections, a variety of healthy options, as well as items based on how much time guests have for their meal. The hotel will continue to feature The Market, which will be open 24/7 to provide guests access to a variety of food items -- anytime.
