At this reinvention of the 1955 landmark Seville Hotel by unlikely hospitality duo Ian Schrager and Marriott, historic glamour parallels modern relaxation from the palm-fringed marble lobby to the beachy guest rooms. Technology fuses with style, convenience is matched with service, and amenities scale the luxurious down to the details that matter, ideal for the guest who seeks multifaceted accommodations for work, play, and relaxation. An array of recreation and escapades include a rockin' pool scene, the La Boqueria-inspired market and coffee shop frequented by Miami's A-list, two memorable restaurants (Matador Room and Market), and an underground bar complete with a luminescent bowling alley and ice rink (which entertain from morning until the wee hours of the next).
