Fontainebleau Miami Beach Review
Vegas meets art deco at this colossal classic, deemed Miami's biggest hotel after its $1 billion reinvention, which spawned more than 1,500 rooms (split among 658 suites in two new all-suite towers and 846 rooms in the two original buildings), 11 renowned restaurants and lounges, LIV nightclub, several sumptuous pools with cabana islands, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a 40,000-square-foot spa. There's so much going on in and around the hotel that you can easily forget about the downy sands directly behind the property. At night, patrons—including those tired of waiting to get into LIV nightclub—get their drink on in the Lobby Lounge. The property teems with new amenities, but thankfully everything is not new: two Morris Lapidus–designed, landmarked exteriors and lobbies were restored to their original state. Rooms, however, were completely gutted, down to the beams, and given new, contemporary designs. This is a complex of historic proportions that's made Mid-Beach rival South Beach as Florida's most trendsetting neighborhood.
A lobby with a neon-blue–lighted bar, massive floodlit marble columns, opulent chandeliers, and sleek furniture sets the tone for a hotel that speaks to everything glamorous about South Beach and those who stay here. The guest rooms are modern, with light wood, white linens, and bursts of bright color in details such as pillows and throws.
