Chic and affordable downtown Miami newcomer with urban comfort fare
It’s a mod, mod, mod, mod world. A just-completed gut renovation transformed an outdated hotel high-rise into a sleek contemporary tower with info-packed computer screens on the wall, oceans of blue carpeting and crisp white walls inside, and an exterior that’s spotlit in different hues each night — such as red when the Miami Heat is playing at American Airlines Arena, across the street.
Bed and Bath
The Biscayne Bay and its passing boats inspired the room decors. The interiors call to mind the staterooms of the cruise ships visible from some rooms, with a cushy white bed floating on a thick, wave-patterned carpet opposite a flat-screen TV. The all-white bathrooms are small but ship-shape, and there are thoughtful touches throughout, from Aveda products in the shower to the blue-painted closet interior, which subtly echoes the nautical theme.
It’s right off the lobby, but Jeffrey Chodorow’s Biscayne Tavern is more than just a hotel restaurant. Its inviting wooden bar, craft beer menu, unpretentious vibe and urban comfort food (think spicy shrimp and grits) make it a crowd-pleaser among locals as well as guests. It’s especially crowded before and after Heat games, at the arena across the street — and pretty packed during games, too, thanks to the big-screen TVs on the back wall.
In the Area
Downtown is a business hub (it has the country’s largest concentration of international banks), but if you’re here for play, not work, you can walk to the Adrienne Arsht Center for traveling Broadway shows, dance performances, opera and concerts; American Airlines Arena for sporting events; and Bayfront Park for carousel rides, open-air concerts and yoga by the bay. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head around the block for Miami’s best Peruvian fare at Ceviche 105 or Pollos y Jarras. The hipster-packed restaurants and open-air graffiti galleries of Wynwood and the luxury shops of the Design District are a few minutes away in a cab, and the sandy shores of Miami Beach are just over the causeway — about a 10-minute drive.
