Restored Mediterranean-style boutique hotel in Miami’s up-and-coming Faena Arts District
Originally constructed in 1928 as an apartment building, Casa Claridge offers a different take on Miami style, with Mediterranean Revival architecture as opposed to the ubiquitous Art Deco farther south. Restored to its original beauty by hotelier Alan Faena, it’s the low-key cornerstone of the lavish Faena Arts District. A four-story interior atrium with ironwork detailing and a wooden lattice gallery offers a cozy gathering spot for guests, while vintage sofas and chairs, plus slightly worn board games and coffee table books, create a sense of home.
Bed and Bath
All of the 50 guestrooms are unique in layout, but original details have been left intact wherever possible, from terrazzo floors to heavy pockmarked wooden doors and frames restained a rich brown. The interior decor — much of it from Noir in California — includes carved wood bed posts and burlap-covered headboards, analog Big Ben alarm clocks, vintage Persian rugs and handmade throws from Argentina, which nod to Faena’s roots. The bathrooms have been refurbished and feature painted tilework, Frette towels, slippers and C.O. Bigelow toiletries.
Café Claridge offers a small Argentine-influenced menu to be enjoyed in the airy lobby restaurant or the adjacent terrace (think skirt steak with plantains and wagyu empanadas). The hotel plans on expanding the café into an understated version of Buenos Aires’ El Mercado, with a tapas menu and communal tables.
In the Area
Check out the permanent collection at the Bass Museum of Art, which spans 500 years. For art of the wearable kind, hit the Webster, where the latest designers are showcased in a landmark Art Deco building. Trendy eateries open and close every season in Miami, which makes the Forge even more special; this elegant wood-paneled restaurant has been catering to Miami’s elite since 1968. Afterward head for a nightcap to Haven Gastro-Lounge, which serves cocktails until 5 a.m.
