This iconic and flamboyant grand dame of Miami Beach combines golden-era glamour and glitz with modern-day luxury.
Designed by neo-baroque master Morris Lapidus, this landmark hotel brought its bold blend of opulence and indulgence to Miami’s shores in 1954. Over the years, Elvis, Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack have partied here and the hotel has featured in the likes of Goldfinger and Scarface. A billion-dollar refurbishment transformed it into a contemporary luxury hotel A billion-dollar refurbishment transformed it into a contemporary luxury hotel but it has retained its distinctive design features such as its marble floor with a bow-rie motif, and the famous ‘Staircase to Nowhere’, which appears to float. Award-winning dining and sleek amenities combine with Miami beach glamour, music and contemporary art for an exclusive experience. The Fontainbleu is the place to see and be seen.
Dining here is an indulgent affair, with Hakkasan serving award-winning Cantonese cuisine and AAA Four Diamond award-winner Scarpetta offering exceptional Italian fare. Classic American dishes haven’t been overlooked and StripSteak by Micheal Mina is a traditional American steakhouse that pays homage to the hotel’s roots. There are also casual dining options such as pizza and burgers. Make your own bloody Mary at Vida, an American brasserie and popular brunch spot, and satisfy your sweet tooth with homemade gelato and delicious cakes from Chez Bon Bon. If you’re feeling peckish by the pool or on the beach then you needn’t move a muscle; just use the hotel’s app to order food and drinks to be brought to your sun lounger.
The chic rooms offer views of Downtown Miami or Biscayne Bay. Upgrade to an Oceanview Room for panoramic sea views or an Oceanfront Room with Balcony or spacious Bayview Junior Suite with Balcony to enjoy the refreshing sea breeze. A range of luxury One and Two Bedroom Suites are located in the two new all-suite towers, offering incredible sea views, a Jacuzzi bath, and a living room with dining area and wet bar.
