With more and more visitors coming to Miami every year, it’s no wonder the city is home to an impressive list of new hotel openings and renovations. Here’s a list of Miami’s hottest new hotels under construction and scheduled to open soon.

Greystone Hotel

Located near South Beach's Collins Park and situated within walking distance to the Miami Beach Convention Center, The Greystone Hotel is a 56,000-square-foot Art Deco hotel inspired by Miami’s Golden Era. A VOS Hospitality property, this upscale, 92-room boutique hotel features a five-story tower, rooftop swimming pool and bar, 140-seat restaurant and a subterranean speakeasy lounge, all designed by Shulman + Associates. "We are excited about the restoration of this historical property," says James Vosotas, CEO of VOS Hospitality. "The building and location have a lot of potential as the epicenter of South Beach continues to move north."

Celino South Beach

Spanning three original Art Deco buildings on Ocean Drive, plus a brand new addition, the historic Park Central Hotel is undergoing a $110 million transformation and will debut as Celino South Beach. Exuding 1940s glamour, the original hotel was a popular hangout for throwback stars like Clark Gable and Humphry Bogart. Legend has it that the property was the birthplace of America’s first conga line. The 132-room hotel features include a rooftop glass-bottom pool, a library overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean restaurant with seafood fare and lots of fun in-room amenities like a conga line kit with how-to guides, conga drums and Cuban cigars. The Celino is a signature project of Optimum Group and managed by Highgate hospitality company.

Mr. C Coconut Grove

The brainchild of Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani, Mr. C Hotels is opening its first location in sunny Florida. Mr. C Coconut Grove combines an Italian coastal style with Miami’s tropical aesthetic. Located in Coconut Grove, the hotel will feature 100 guestrooms and suites and is situated within walking distance to a bevy of restaurants and boutiques. The onsite eatery, Bellini Restaurant and Bar, is an Italian concept inspired by the founders’ travels throughout Italy. “The hotel is suspended on sculptural stilts in the tree canopy of Coconut Grove,” says Raymond Fort, Senior Associate of Arquitectonica. “This design embraces the idea of the historic Stiltsville structures in Biscayne Bay that can be seen at a distance from the rooms and public spaces of the hotel.”

Selina Hotel Little Havana

Miami’s colorful Little Havana neighborhood is getting a new boutique hotel. Formerly known as the historic Tower Hotel, the property will debut as Selina Hotel Little Havana. Designed for the nomadic Millennial traveler, the Latin American hotel brand combines a boutique hotel concept with co-working and co-living spaces. This is the first location in the United States for Selina brand founders Rafi Museri and Daniel Rudasevski. Additionally, the hotel is planning a partnership with Miami-based Mad Room Hospitality, the company behind the popular Ball & Chain restaurant and bar in Little Havana.

Wyndham Grand and TRYP by Wyndham

Hospitality industry giant Wyndham Hotel Group is opening a combination of the Wyndham Grand and TRYP by Wyndham brand hotels—a first for the company. The new dual-branded hotel will tower 41-stories high and feature 445 rooms (200 under Wyndham Grand and 245 under TRYP by Wyndham). The hotels will share a lobby and lounge space, pool deck and a rooftop restaurant and bar. Brand loyalists will be glad to know the property will feature their signature family-style rooms with extra space and bunk beds for kids—a favorite amenity for adults traveling with children. "With nearly 16 million visitors last year and projected increases for the years ahead, Miami continues to be one of the world's most coveted travel destinations with a style all its own," says Mark Kukulski, president of Wyndham Hotel Group's management organization. "By combining our most worldly, destination-centric brands, we're offering travelers a taste of Wyndham Hotel Group, Miami-style – with chic shared spaces, trendy dining options and their choice of brand experience via TRYP by Wyndham's lifestyle flair or Wyndham Grand's easy elegance." The property is expected to open in late 2019.

Axel Hotel

A popular Spanish hotel company aimed at the LGBTQ community is opening a Miami Beach location—the first in the U.S. for the brand. “Everything started with a dream: to open a hotel aimed at the LGBTQ world, my world,” says Juan Juliá, Axel Hotel president. “A cosmopolitan and tolerant environment where atmosphere, diversity and respect are valued.” The first hotel opened in 2003 in Barcelona and the Miami Beach hotel will open in a 1940s-era Art Deco building on Collins Avenue. The hotel will feature 159 rooms, luxury spa, restaurant and rooftop bar.

Palihouse Miami Beach

Los Angeles-based Paligroup is opening its first hotel on the East Coast. The 71-room Palihouse Miami Beach will debut on the Indian Creek waterway in a completely reimagined historic Art Deco building. Most rooms will feature kitchenettes and the lobby will showcase an eclectic boho chic vibe. Guests will have access to the hotel’s beach club and boat dock, and the pool deck will feature a patio garden. The best part? The hotel is close to all the action in Miami Beach and there’s so much to do.

Hotel Palomar South Beach

Under the Kimpton umbrella, Hotel Palomar South Beach is located in the hip Sunset Harbour neighborhood in Miami Beach. Owned and developed by The Finvarb Group, the hotel will feature a striking design by legendary Miami architect and designer Kobi Karp, a rooftop pool and a new signature restaurant overlooking Collins Canal. “Miami continues to be one of the hottest tourist destinations in North America and has become an increasingly popular destination for international travelers as well,” says Mike DeFrino, CEO for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. “The Hotel Palomar South Beach will be a wonderful addition to our properties in sunny South Florida.”
