MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – (October 1, 2012) – First unveiled on Ocean Drive in 1937, Winter Haven Hotel, an Urgo Hotels property, makes a fresh debut to the Magic City on September 28 as a member of Marriott International’s celebrated Autograph Collection. The fully-restored interiors were conceptualized by Edge of Architecture and focused on historical conservation maintaining the Art Deco era in which it was built and its original infrastructure as created by acclaimed architect Albert Anis.
The nautically-inspired details encapsulate an
ode to the ocean liners of the Art Deco era with a fusion of modern
The lobby is covered in terrazzo flooring that leads to a grand cruise
ship-inspired staircase with chrome-finished railings that wrap around
second level. Elements like the marble-topped wood and beveled glass
desk have been preserved while the lobby transcends guests into a new
“decosphere” with bold updated accents of snake skin-covered high-back
velvet-quilted sectional seating encompassed by rich hues of greens,
organic earth tones.
Also on the ground level, is the Hotel’s extended-stay
“resident,” Il Bolognese - an Italian-style restaurant that also
location on South Beach’s celebrated Lincoln Road. Items
pizzas, pastas and fired-grilled dishes.
The new upgrades make plasma televisions,
international cable lineup and Wi-Fi standard. The property’s 70 guest
display wall-to-wall updates with a creative work space, full length
treatments and fully renovated bathrooms. Further, the beveled mirror
carries over from the lobby with an oversized suspended oval mirror and
built-in mirror-faced end tables that flank the bed frame. Fine
juxtaposition of the modern-deco approach can be found in the
wood-meets-crocodile wrapped headboard.
Guests looking to take refuge from the energetic
Ocean Drive hotel front can head up to the 1,600-square-foot rooftop
which is outfitted in dark retain seating and inescapable panoramic
the Atlantic Ocean.
The exclusive location of Winter Haven’s
oceanfront property makes experiencing one of the most famous and
streets in South Beach a cultural voyage that nods to the cities
of Art Deco.
