As the hotel scene in Miami keeps heating up, we’ve been keeping an ear to the ground for the latest news on the Miami Beach Edition. As we reported earlier this year, the growth of Ian Schrager’s Edition hotels are part of Marriott’s aggressive luxury expansion- with a bevy of properties in the pipeline around the world.
Originally slated to open this month, the Miami Edition is one such sought-after debut, as it will utterly transform a 1950s landmark (the old Seville hotel) on Collins Avenue. The hotel’s opening has been pushed back to November, and the official website is accepting reservations starting December 1, 2014.
What’s in store? Restaurants (and a gourmet marketplace) by famed chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten; the city’s largest beachfront with chaise loungers and an outdoor movie theatre; two outdoor pools overlooking the Atlantic; plus a 24/7 fitness center and spa. Did we mention the “full floor entertainment center” outfitted with a bowling alley, ice-skating rink, and nightclub? An urban resort, indeed!
