MIAMI BEACH, FL—Following the completion of a $25-million restoration, the Courtyard Cadillac Miami Beach Oceanfront’s new LEED-certified 93-guestroom oceanfront tower will be completed in December 2013.

The hotel will now offer a total of 356 guestrooms, including 19 suites, as well as a new oceanfront saltwater pool, a gym, updated lobby, indoor/outdoor meeting space, the renovated Carrabba’s Surfside Tiki Bar and new poolside cabanas.

The lobby features a new 32-ft. lobby bar, Lounge DeVille, while the main pool area has been completely redesigned with cabanas and a deck that fuses the outdoor space with the lounge through large operational glass panels. Overall, the concept for the renovation was to employ the motifs of the original Art Deco style reflecting the vibrancy of Miami by incorporating elements of the local beach culture with infused bright colors and rich harmonious textures, according to the company.

The hotel will offer 5,803 sq. ft. of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting areas including a new meeting space entitled the Golden Vee Ballroom located in the new tower, which is slated to accommodate up to 120 guests, featuring high ceilings, and 2,278 sq. ft. of sustainable meeting space that opens up to the newly constructed outdoor space called The Lawn totaling 3000 sq. ft. It is equipped with an infinity pool and nine full sized cabanas, which can each fit up to a party of eight guests each.
