New Miami Hotels in revitalized downtown
Many cruises originate from the port of Miami. Developers have been
keying on this fact as well as the history of the downtown area and have
been actively reclaiming a vibrancy to the downtown Miami area with a
crop of new upscale hotels and restaurants. A new train will go online
in 2012 to dispatch people from the airport to downtown Miami.
Three of the newest hotels in the downtown area of Miami include:
JW Marriott Marquis
This 313 room hotel offers an indoor basketball court, expansive in-room window views of Biscayne Bay, mirrors with built-in TV, and a posh bistro restaurant (Daniel Boulud's db Bistro Moderne).
Part of the Kimpton chain, the Epic Hotel is a boutique hotel offering rooms in subtle colors, with balcony views, a wine happy hour, spa, and the popular ZUMA restaurant, specializing in Japanese tapas.
Located in a condo tower near American Airlines Arena, the home of the Miami Heat.
