For the past several years, the Miami hotel scene has remained rather stagnant until now.
Enter the Thompson Miami Beach, a fusion of a 1940s art deco ambiance, chic, modern amenities and a beach front property. The hotel resort is one of South Beach’s brand new properties opening its doors on November 21, 2014. Below is why Quintessentially Lifestyle absolutely loves the property and why it should be on your destination list
The Guest Rooms
Contains 380 rooms with ocean front, ocean view, and city views – the vibe is 1950s with retro, nautical accents and vanity spaces with over-sized mirrors. Insider tip: all mini bars are equipped with “Mix It Up!” cocktail menus so you can make your favourite classic drink with a Miami twist.
Chef Michelle Bernstein takes the helm at Thompson’s restaurant located on the hotel’s main level serving breakfast, lunch, dinner daily, and 24-hour in-room dining. Commissioning a handful of local farmers to harvest specific products for the menu, Bernstein focuses on fresh vegetables, creative small plates, and a rich raw bar. Insider tip: Try the kale salad and the garganelli pasta.
The hotel has two heated pools to optimize frolicking and relaxation at the same time. Surrounded by bright umbrellas and private cabanas, the pool area is perfect for basking in the sun or hiding from the paparazzi and craziness of the city. Insider tip: Reserve one of the private cabanas that can house up to five or six guests and make a day of pool fun!
One of the unique features of the property is the 1930s House; a historic, freestanding venue that was moved from across the street to the hotel grounds in the early 2000s. If you are a cocktail enthusiast, this is your spot! The space is decorated with orange clay floors, a limestone fireplace and hacienda-style bar with early 20th century Havana-style furnishings making it feel as if you are entering a Latino wonderland. Insider Tip: Try the Añejo Old Fashioned and the Ain’t MISbeeHAVIN’.
