After a year of renovations, The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove, Miami finished construction in late January. Though it stayed open through the updates, guests can only now begin to take in all the changes.
Injecting a Bohemian touch into the hotel’s furnishings, guest accommodations now feature gold accents and locally sourced art, to go along with neutral-toned furniture and bed linens. In the lobby, leather-wrapped columns, peacock tones and dark green velvet furniture have been introduced. Out in the pool area, guests are met with new tile, lounge furniture and cabanas—perfect for a day of relaxation.
For couples looking for a weekend away, we recommend the Deluxe Room with its plush king bed and marble-covered master bedroom. For families, a suite is best; with room for four or more, these expansive accommodations include a living room, dining room and one and a half bathrooms.
The past year’s improvements have also brought two new dining options. At Isabelle’s Grill Room & Garden, guests can start off with beef carpaccio, jumbo crab cake or Spanish octopus and follow that up with lobster pappardelle or seared striped bass for the main course. The new cocktail bar The Commodore not only offers a unique drink menu, but also has a snack menu that includes mushroom toast, beef sliders and ahi tuna tacos with kimchi.
Should guests have any free time, we suggest going out and exploring the area. Walking through Coconut Grove, Miami’s oldest continuously inhabited neighborhood, visitors can pass by local art studios, new retailers and little shops and cafes. About a 10-minute drive away, guests can see the only National Tropical Botanical Garden outside of Hawaii at The Kampong. Even further afield, guests can arrange to use the hotel’s house car for a quick drive to The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami for a beach day.
