The Vibe: Art Deco Grande Dame with a European-inspired tropical touch.
The Area: Located oceanfront in Miami’s Mid-beach neighborhood, a 10-minute drive north of buzzy South Beach. There’s not much else in the immediate vicinity aside from other hotels, but the white sand beaches are its calling card.
The DNA: Originally designed by Art Deco master Roy France in 1940, the Cadillac Hotel has given the beautiful historic property the luxury touch. Brass and crystal halo chandeliers and frescoed palm fronds adorn double-height ceilings in the breezy flow-through lobby, with chic plush sofas and rattan armchairs in a palette of navy, white and silver with potted palms. The poolscape is similarly sublime with two pools, turf landscaping, palm trees, a hot tub, cabanas and a thatched roof tiki bar boasting ocean views.
Suite-Me-Up: Oceanfront and city view rooms, including 20 spacious suites, are complemented by radiant white stone floors with Art Deco inspired articulation, flattering ambient lighting and subtle gold and smoky blue accents. Together, these design details create a sanctuary that allow guests to unwind in style. The hotel’s signature Cadillac Suite faces the Atlantic Ocean with an expansive terrace, large enough to host private dinners and cocktail receptions. Accented with a plush outdoor living area, the Cadillac Suite has an outdoor dining area and sunbeds for basking in the Miami sun. A state-of-the-art home theater and 65-inch television enhance the entertainment systems of the hotel’s premier suite.
