MIAMI BEACH, FL—The Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach has opened. It is owned and operated by Singapore-based COMO Hotels and Resorts.
Located on Collins Ave. and 24th St. in South Beach, the 74-room hotel occupies an original 1930s Art Deco building and features a private pool with cabanas, a rooftop COMO Shambhala spa and a private dock on the Intracoastal Waterway.
Interiors are by the Italian designer Paola Navone, who preserved the hotel’s Art Deco exterior and other features, such as the lobby’s terrazzo floor, and contrasted it with contemporary interiors in shades of peppermint green and gray, with surfaces of white marble and chrome.
The hotel has two restaurants, including The Traymore, showcasing Floridian seafood such as stone crab, Key West pink shrimp and yellow tail snapper. At the poolside restaurant—open only to hotel guests—diners may enjoy pizzas from the brick oven or graze on crudo while relaxing in a cabana. The rooftop COMO Shambhala Urban Escape has four treatment rooms, hydrotherapy pool and juice bar with views of the ocean. Therapies include the company’s signature COMO Shambhala Massage as well as the COMO Shambhala Sun Soother. Each morning complimentary yoga is offered on the spa terrace overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway.
