Miami Beach has always been a tourist-friendly vacation hot spot. But this 7-mile long island city is much more than that. Visitors from around the world, celebrities and locals recognize Miami Beach as a trend-setting arts and entertainment Mecca, as well as a shopping and cultural wonder.
One of the most popular areas for tourists and locals alike is South Beach. Home of the historic Art Deco district, SoBe – as it’s also known – features the hottest club scene in America, world-class dining, chic boutiques, unique shops and a spectacular beach. One of the best ways to experience the SoBe scene during a vacation or business trip is to stay at a hip boutique property like the Colony Hotel.
Known as one of the most photographed hotels in the world, the Colony is a classic Art Deco property, and one of the first hotels to be constructed by influential architect Henry Hohauser back in 1935. The hotel has been remodeled extensively over the years, but its Art Deco integrity has never been compromised, as guests can bear witness to in the original pipe railings, concrete cantilevered overhangs and its world-renowned blue neon sign.
Guest rooms at the Colony Hotel Miami have been stylishly renovated in recent years, and feature refinished pine hardwood floors, low rise European bedding and linens, flatscreen plasma TV, and custom Art Deco furniture. Amenities include an in-room safe, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, free daily newspaper and free wireless Internet access throughout the hotel.
The concierge at the Colony Hotel South Beach is available 24-hours a day to assist you with tours, excursions, and car rental information. Discounted VIP passes to the nearby clubs are also available. When you’re hungry for a bite to eat or thirsty for a cool cocktail, there’s no need to leave the hotel. The Colony Café, a full service restaurant, bar and lounge serves a variety of appetizers, wraps, burgers, and salads to tempt your taste buds. Feel free to sit indoors or outside on Ocean Drive for some “people watching” as you enjoy your meal. Drink specials are available seven days a week.
The Colony Hotel South Beach is located right on Ocean Drive, so guests only have to step across the street to walk along the beach, swim or play a game of volleyball. Complimentary beach towels are provided at the front desk. If you’re ready to make your reservations for a South Beach vacation, visit CRSHotels.com.
