Two of Miami's most beautiful neighborhoods offer elegant hotel options for the traveler who wants to explore meandering tree-lined streets and get a taste of historic local architecture.
The Biltmore in Coral Gables
One of Miami's most notable historic hotels, The Biltmore first opened its doors in 1926. The property offers a grand lobby decorated in elegant furnishings and decor as well as 275 upscale guest rooms. Practice your golf game at the picturesque Donald Ross 18-Hole golf course, go for a dip in the largest hotel swimming pool in the country, or become a part of Coral Gables tradition and partake in the lavish Sunday brunch in the Fontana courtyard.
The Westin Colonnade in Coral Gables
Located in the heart of Coral Gables' Miracle Mile shopping district, The Westin Colonnade's neoclassical marble-tiled rotunda was originally built in 1926. An often-booked venue for weddings, the hotel's Mediterranean-style architecture by the famed George Merrick and high quality finishes make this property a showstopper.
Hyatt Regency in Coral Gables
To experience another Mediterranean beauty, book your stay at the Hyatt Regency Coral Gables, which was actually modeled after the Alhambra Palace in Spain. You'll find Spanish-inspired detailing throughout the property and a rooftop pool offering lovely views of Coral Gables.
