MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 13, 2013) - Miami Beach is known for many things, like perfect aqua waves, endless sunshine and architecture that is as attractive as the celebrities who frequent the area. And while there is much to admire in South Beach, nothing captures the historical grandeur and geographical flair for luxury quite like that epitome of Miami's Art Deco hotels, the Courtyard Cadillac Miami Beach/Oceanfront. What's more, this iconic property has just completed a $25-million restoration that has left it looking better than ever.
Built in 1940, the Cadillac continues to exert a commanding presence over other Lincoln Road hotels in Miami Beach, largely thanks to its towering, symmetrical architecture. Yet it's what's inside that truly sets this property apart, starting with the lobby. When guests enter this renovated hotel, they're greeted by a newly expanded lobby where a 32-foot bar, aptly named Lounge DeVille, and the refreshed Cadillac Café preside over the comings and goings of visitors.
In addition to the lobby's gastronomic offerings, the hotel has updated its other South Beach, Miami restaurants. Both its Carrabba's Italian Grill and Oceanfront Surfside Tiki Bar now enjoy remodeled spaces with upgraded appointments and modernized aesthetics. Similarly, the recreational opportunities have been improved. The state-of-the-art gym provides expanded workout programming, and a new saltwater pool is sitting pretty in the Oceanfront Tower. The main pool, meanwhile, now features spacious cabanas and sliding glass panels that blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces.
But perhaps the most dramatic changes have been the new 93 guest rooms in the LEED-certified Oceanfront Tower. Not only do they allow more people to enjoy the landmark property's amenities, but they overlook the beach below and carry its invigorating presence inside with a palette of vibrant, energetic hues.
Guests who are visiting this Miami Beach Convention Center hotel for work can enjoy its updated comforts, too. Between the Chrome Boardroom (for intimate groups of up to 15) and the Golden Vee Ballroom (for larger gatherings of up to 120), business now unfolds amid the newest, most eco-friendly event spaces in Miami Beach. And that's something that never goes out of style.
