Blending that typically chic SoBe attitude and beach resort style with family friendliness, affordability, multiple-award-winning hospitality and luxury 5-star extravagance, it’s no wonder that Fontainebleau Miami Beach is one of the city’s hottest, most talked-about properties. This laidback yet palatial hotel has pride of place on the north end of South Beach. Surrounded by the waters of the Intracoastal Waterway to the west, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the four buildings of Fontainebleau – Tresor, Sorrento, Chateau and Versailles – sit atop 22 acres of oceanfront gardens, fringed with palm trees and featuring a freeform pool the centrepiece.
The Morris Lapidus-designed hotel opened in 1954 on Millionaire’s Row of Collins Avenue and has welcomed many illustrious guests over the years. In 2008, the hotel underwent a huge revamp and renovation project, so now guests of Fontainebleau can enjoy a slice of Golden Era glamour while steeped in state-of the-art modern luxury.
From comfortable nights in Fontainebleau’s spacious rooms and suites, excellently appointed with touches like personal iMacs, and exquisitely designed, to raucous nights started in any of its fine eateries followed by dancing and cocktail in the on-site exclusive nightclub LIV, the Fontainebleau truly caters for all. There's also free WiFi in every room, gum access, supervised kid's club, babysitting service and dedicated childrens check in service.
Add to all that a 40,000-foot spa, jet pool, ultra-modern gym, a hair and nail salon, a vast range of bars, Zagat-rated Gotham Steak, run by a Michelin-star chef and AAA Four Diamond award-winning Hakkasan restaurant, and of course a pristine stretch of beach in one of the world’s favourite beachfront cities. The Fontainebleau practically epitomises what Miami is all about – an iconic landmark of classic glamour, engulfed by modern brilliance.
Please Note: This hotel charges resort fees (tax not included) of $19.95 per room per night.
