Situated between booming Brickell and well known hot spot South Beach, Downtown Miami is often overlooked. With access to some many gorgeous hotels and fine dining, it’s an ideal place for business or vacation travel. When staying Downtown, you’ll want to be in the lap of luxury and one name quickly comes to mind – Hotel Beaux Arts. Located on the 38th, 39th and 40th floors of one of city’s most recognized skyscrapers (the below floors are the famed JW Marriott Marquis), the 44-room boutique hotel creates an intimate and residential experience high above Downtown Miami. As the newest member of the Autograph Collection Hotels, you’ll find yourself in design heaven surrounded by class and style.
A hidden gem above the hustle and bustle of the city, Hotel Beaux Arts offers guests the intimacy of a private residence with an art-inspired focus. The boutique hotel has partnered with a local art gallery, ArtscapeLab, to provide contemporary art throughout the hotel, which rotates periodically and is curated to complement the interior design. Upon check in guests will notice artwork everywhere they look. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious with amazing views of the city and the bay. Any request a guest may need to make can be done via the personalized iPad located in each room. In fact, there are so many technology based amenities that guests are greeted with a ten minute tour of their room by the ever-so-accommodating concierge – think televisions in the bathroom mirror, instant blackout curtains, eco-friendly lighting, and swivel television stands for convenient tv watching from the bed or the sofa.
While the rooms at Hotel Beaux Arts are amazing, venturing out is a must. The property boosts areas with more activities than one would expect in the middle of a busy city. There’s a golf school, NBA-approved basketball court, beautiful pool and bar, spa, 3D bowling, a movie theater, billiards, and air hockey all ready for guests and included in the resort fee. All that physical activity is bound to work up an appetite.
If you’re looking to stay in the hotel, the first floor of the property will be home to the brand new Boulud Sud opening this winter by New York’s Daniel Boulud. A Mediterranean concept with coastal cuisine inspired by flavors from the Côte d’Azur Spain, Italy, Greece, Morocco, Tunisia, Lebanon, Turkey and beyond. Chef Boulud has had a concept in this location for the last 7 years and while we are sad to see the original one go, the new concept is going to be an exciting one.
Once back in your room, make sure to make use of the snuggly black robes and slippers found in the closest. In the morning, opt for room service or head to the cafe on the 39th floor featuring a simple, yet delicious breakfast spread, more art, and those downtown views you’ve no doubt fallen in love with.
Saying goodbye is never fun, but check out is easy on the in-room iPad and you can even avoid the valet wait by requesting your car on the way down.
